Golden hour magic!

When I suggest meeting around 7/7.30pm for a session I am often met with a ‘ahhh man that’s crazy’. I totally get it’s the kids bedtime, it’s getting closer and closer to that time where you finally get to sit down for 5 minutes peace but….just loooooook. Ok, so we don’t always get golden light but when we do it’s like fairies dancing in glitter - freaking magical ♥

If you have ever thought of having a session at this time, but fear risking the chance of your children acting like raving loonies or missing out on that precious down time then just remember it’s only for one evening and the results with not only be amazing but they’ll be perfect.

There’s so many places where this beautiful light makes for great photos; the woods for one - imagine all of this golden light dappling through all of the crisp leaves and shining all it’s warmth on your skin.
The beach - I mean, I don’t even really need to explain how magical this light is shimmering on the water and making the sand even more golden and you can all walk along barefoot with the breeze blowing your hair.
And I’m going to throw in a curveball and say your home too - this light catches all the tiny dust particles and all this things sparkly to create pretty little pockets of beauty in your home. Add in your gorgeous family with lots of hugs and smiles and you have a set of wall worthy images.

Without further ado I’m going to show off this wonderful Mumma with her absolutely adorable little boy ❤

Staying in is the new going out!

So you’ve just had a baby - congratulations! The chances are you are pretty damn tired and broken. Your body is trying to repair itself and your baby is trying to adjust to this new world that they’ve been thrown in to. The nights seem so long and the days are all a blur this time right here, it’s magical. It all feels like such a whirlwind of emotions but it also goes so fast and before you know it, your tiny little baby who you can’t ever imagine being out of your arms will be charging around the house, bossing you around and causing mass destruction.

These baby times are precious and when you feel tired, sore but absolutely besotted with this new life you’ve created - this is the most perfect time to capture the magical (and sometimes crazy) bubble you’re in. Now, I don’t expect you to pack half of your house and the kitchen sink up in a changing bag to bring yourselves all to me but instead I come to you. Your home, your sanctuary - where you and your baby feel relaxed and safe. I won’t force you into lots of unnatural poses but I’ll guide you to make the most of your home and give you beautiful memories of this precious time.

You don’t need to have a show home - your house is perfect however it looks because this is the place you’ve grown your baby on the inside and where it will flourish on the outside. You may redecorate, you may move home and when you look back on these images you’ll get that beautiful flutter in your tummy of the memories when your darling baby was tiny and of the home you adored.

I’m happy to travel anywhere so if you’d like an at home session - just pop me a message and I’ll get right back to you.
