Bump and Baby Photographer Watford Hertfordshire

I’m a newborn baby, family and child portrait photographer based in Northamptonshire but I also cover Hertfordshire where I was previously based.  Many of my past clients in Watford, Rickmansworth, Chorleywood and St Albans return for sessions year after year as their children grow.

I expect you remember this gorgeous maternity shoot combined with family shoot back in November in the Autumn leaves – Gorgeous Mum and 2 nutty little girls.  The newborn baby – girl number 3 – arrived just in time for Christmas and I was lucky enough to get some pictures on the day after she was born as well as when she was just a week old.  The wide awake shots were Day 1 – she was so alert and just wanted to feed and stay awake. By day 7 she was bit more settled and sleepy – but it enabled a lovely range of sleepy shots and more open-eyed shots.   You will see from the last shot that Mum and Dad were pretty determined during the pregnancy that there would be no more babies, but …..  looking at their faces, admiring their latest beautiful daughter I’m not 100% convinced it really is the last one !   Hope you enjoy this newborn baby shoot in Watford.

Portrait Photographer Hertfordshire, Bump Photos Watford

I recently undertook a lovely family portrait photography session in Watford.  The family are regulars of mine and it was great to see the crazy little girlies again and to photograph Bump Number Three !  Its always good to include the colours of the season, so we started out with the whole family taking some fun shots in the Autumn leaves and then moved inside for some gentle bump shots.  Looking forward to meeting the new baby in a few weeks time.

I have a few newborns to look forward to in the next couple of months and have recently done a couple of bump shoots for the Mums-to-Be.  These are a lovely record of a very special time and its wonderful to then return and meet the baby.  Sometimes there are older siblings who will take part in the shoot which can give it an added dimension.  This shoot was one of those.  Maternity shoots or Pregnancy shoots or whatever we decide to call them can take place on location the same as any other shoot or in the comfort of your own home.  My shoots are really just about showing the beauty of the Mother’s changing shape and do not involve lots of bare skin as I think some expectant women are too self conscious and can be put off of the idea of a Bump Shoot if they think they have to be half-naked.  For Maternity Photos in Northampton, Milton Keynes and surrounding areas get in touch for further information.  I will do Bump and Baby Photos in Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.  This shoot took place in Stockgrove Country Park in Bedfordshire.

I hope you like the images – this is just a small selection

Pregnancy Portraits in Olney

I usually photograph new babies once they arrive – but it is becoming more popular to capture the beginning of the new baby’s journey with a pregnancy shoot.  I think people often assume that a pregnancy shoot or a “bump” shoot involves the mum to be having to be half naked with a bare bump – which would no doubt make many expectant mums feel rather self-conscious and perhaps put them off.  I think it is wonderful to capture the beauty of the pregnancy and the changing shape of the mother without the need to show lots of skin.  If you are pregnant and not sure if you would be comfortable with a pregnancy shoot then perhaps a session like this one would suit you .. all images were taken outdoors near Olney in Buckinghamshire … I hope you like them.
