South London Motherhood Session – London Newborn Photographer

South London Motherhood Session.
London Newborn Photographer.

As a London Newborn Photographer it’s probably expected that one of my favourite sessions I shoot includes a baby! But, out of all the different types of shoots I get to do, I might rate Motherhood Sessions as my top. Or at least very high up there there. I love them all, but truthfully,  I do adore these sessions in particular.

They’re relaxed, they’re intimate and it’s so special special to see the bond between baby & mum. When you live in such a fast and hectic city like London it’s important to slow down and appreciate everything you have. That’s probably why Motherhood session really pull at my heart strings. The pictures are more than just pictures, they’re important moments. We all hear about how mum’s spend so much of their time taking the photographs of their family that they miss actually being in them. Well this is my little attempt at saying ‘Hold up, let’s change this together” by getting mum and baby behind the camera. Just the two of them. I love it.

I also adore paring natural, gentle window light and traditional black and white film. It makes for the most beautiful, soft, emotive images.

This shoot I am sharing today was shot on a dull, dreary winter afternoon. The skies were heavy as I ventured to South London to visit baby & mum. Little Seb is baby number two, with an older brother it can be a little tricky getting some one-on-one time between these two. So this was perfect. A Motherhood Session with sweet, three month Seb and some much appreciated bonding time, caught on film. It was so relaxed, we had some coffee and settled in the kitchen, by the window, to catch the natural light fall on them both together. In each image you can clearly see the gestures of protective, caring and loving mum and the trust of baby Seb. So. Much. Love.

As a London Newborn Photographer, I love my job when I get to deliver images like these that hold such value to the family. If you’re interested in learning a bit more about them – you can see what is included & the investment of a Motherhood session over here Motherhood Sessions.

I love shooting families, and as a photographer who shoots a lots of West London family photography I am crazy lucky with the places I shoot and more importantly the families I meet. And this shoot here has to be one of my favourite shoots yet! It was all last minute rushing and organising in what came together to be a photoshoot full of laughter, cuddles, games, races and plenty of sunshine. It was beautiful! I have never met two sisters so sweet together, whispering, cuddling, chasing each other and with such strong and independent personalities.

And that’s exactly what I try and show through my images.

I shoot to document these honest and inquisitive personalities of your little ones, the interactions between siblings, between parents & their children – and I don’t want to forget the genuine intimacy between Mum and Dad too.

With every family shoot, what you can expect from the result is real authenticity.And what I love about shooting families is that you can see, in every single picture, the love, character and personalities of everyone involved.

As a London Family Photographer I get the joy of meeting families from all over the world who live and visit this incredible city. It’s so fun. So that’s kind of a critical part of a Family Photography shoot with me. Fun. It’s all about fun. I’m not really for you if you’re after posed and formal images, as you can see below I am a Family Photographer that likes to capture everyone smiling. Honest smiling that is, no fake ‘say cheese’ here 😉

And, as well as shooting beautiful West London Family Photography, I get to explore the countless parks and beautiful little Mews & spots this side of the city has to offer. What a job full of perks, especially as I love cycling and exploring my neighbourhood!

Now, If you think an authentic shoot full of laughter is your cup of tea and would love images like those you can see in my portfolio of your crazy, fun family, then check out my pricing structure. And you can also find me on Facebook here or Instagram here for social media goodness!
