A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing the very lovely baby Ivy in East Molesey. At nine months old she was comfortably sitting, but not yet crawling. I love photographing babies at this age – they interact so well, and as the shoot progresses so much of their personality comes out. I can really get to know their character – from their inquisitive looks, to how they explore and play with their books and toys.
One of the most memorable moments from this session for me was when Ivy opened up the book “Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes” – this has been one of our favourite books since my daughter was a few weeks old and always brings back happy memories for me. You’ll spot the book in the photographs as you scroll through.
I love it when a shoot is personalised to a family, and this is one of the things that I’ll always spend time talking to parents about on the phone during their planning consultation. Whether it’s a favourite book, toy, sport or place it’s always lovely to include these special things in the photographs somehow.
I am a newborn, baby and family photographer based in East Molesey close to Hampton Court. I cover all of Surrey and South West London. You can get in touch to book a session, or check availability here.
