Newborn Photography Clapham – Battersea – Baby Lulu

I photographed this sweet baby girl in January.

I met mum during the Christmas Northcote Road market when she was still pregnant and she got in touch shortly after to arrange the newborn session.

Lulu came to the studio with mum and dad and her big brother, 17 months old and super smiley boy who was very cuddly and sweet with the sister. She was 2 weeks old and quite an adorable baby to work with. She was awake to be photographed with the family and then she slept for some cute poses ๐Ÿ™‚

Baby Photography Battersea – Little Samuel is growing

I love when I can see again my clients. I photographed Samuel over a year ago, when he was only 2 weeks old. I remember he was a very alert baby and was a bit hard to get him to sleep.

He came back to my studio in Battersea a few weeks ago and he couldn’t stay still ๐Ÿ™‚

Quite a funny and entertaining session I’d say, but that’s why I love my job!

I just wanted to share a photo from his newborn session, a cute cheeky look he had already on those early days and a sneak peek from the last session. He grew up into a gorgeous toddler now and he kept the cheeky look ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday Review โ€“ Barry the Fish with Fingers

I haven’t done a Friday review in a while now . . .ย  but sometimes I am getting caught upย too much with things ๐Ÿ™

We recently bought the book “Barry the fish with fingers” and Amy is loving it.

We had already one of the Barry’s story and she was never tired of listening to it. Like the other there are beautiful colourful illustrations that really catch children attention. And what’s more funny than a fish with fish fingers? When you look at Barry you have to put smile on your face ๐Ÿ™‚ Big eyes, big smile, beautiful bluish tail and “sparkling” fingers!

Barry is definitely not an ordinary fish and I like when he explains what he can do with fingers!ย  Knitting, painting, cutting and . . . tickling of course ๐Ÿ™‚

The book is also about jealousy, but in a way that we all should appreciate everyone’s special talents. Barry can do a lot of things with his fingers but Puffy can blow the best bubbles ever! All the fish are different and special and have their own gift! It’s just about working together and get a better result than just working alone. And the final party is perfect!

It’s a funny story that I definitely recommend to read.

You can listen to the story here.

Have a great weekend!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Newborn Photographer Clapham – baby Hugo

I met Hugo when he was still inside mummy’s bump. Mum was visiting the local fair in Northcote Road, Battersea. The family dog was there as well and we start talking about newborn photography and the possibility to include the pet as well. I love dogs and I had a labrador myself so I know how precious is to create memories with them as well.

They came to my studio when the baby was 7 weeks old, so not really a newborn any more, but still a super cute little baby. As an older baby he was quite alert and it took a while to get him to sleep. It was nice taking some photos of the baby awake, a few little expressions and when he felt asleep we had a few photographs sleeping and some with the dogs too ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me to introduce beautiful baby Hugo.

5 Reasons why you should have Maternity Photography?

I decided to write a post about this topic because Mother’s Day is coming soon and what better way to celebrate Motherhood since the very beginning when a woman is about to become a mother!

Maternity photography is getting more popular.

 

When Demi Moore showed off her nude belly in 1991 in the Vanity Fair cover there were some rumour about it, but after that always more celebrities and women wanted to be portrait during this special time. If you are reading this you are probably pregnant and interested (or at least intrigued) in having a nice maternity portrait session. However, I know a lot of you are still a bit reluctant and unsure about this type of photography. I have been there too so I know how you feel, I know your body is going through a lot of changes and you might not feel great but I want you to consider a few things that can help you to make up your mind ๐Ÿ™‚ At least I hope so!

So why maternity photography?

 

Create a special and unforgettable memory. You are living a unique experience: you are growing inside yourself a little baby and carrying it for 9 months. It’s all about the mum-to-be and her big belly, having some nice images of this moment and having a story to tell to your children when they are older. My daughter is only 3 years old but she often looks at my belly photos in the album and says “there is Amy in here”, or “mum and Amy here”.  And it truly melts my heart when I hear that! Daddy, of course, is always welcome to join.

You don’t need to take off your clothes if you don’t feel like it.  That very first image I mentioned at the beginning, portraits a completely nude woman, other celebrities posed naked in front of the camera, a lot of women like to show off their belly and cover the rest of their body with fabrics or gowns. Others feel more comfortable with their clothing on and there is absolutely no a right or wrong way to be photographed. It’s all about you and you decide how you feel best. You can have beautiful portraits either way. This particular image won a gold award from SWPP association.

It’s a unique opportunity, nearly once in a lifetime. I know you can a few children and be pregnant again and again, but your maternity portrait session is really a once in a lifetime opportunity. Every pregnancy is different and special. You will look different every time. Your belly could have a  different shape or different size, you could have another age. With your first baby you can have an intimate session with your husband. With second or third you can have the other children involved in the session too.

Pregnant women are all beautiful. I remember someone once saying “I can tell if a woman is pregnant just looking at her eyes because they have a special sparkle”. I laughed at first, replying “What? Are you a kind of magician?” But you know what? It’s true. Pregnant women have a particular glow and even if they don’t feel as such they are radiant! Let me show your beauty.

 Just have fun.  Belly or not, it’s all about being themselves, having fun and celebrate this time with your loved ones ๐Ÿ™‚
