I didn’t plan on writing a blog post about this, but my clients were so inspirational in their outfits that I want to take a moment to talk about it.
Usually, I ask all my clients to wear only White, Beige or Cream. They can add in an accent colour with accessories (mustard-yellow scarf, or blue boots, etc). But ONLY ONE accent colour. Why do I limit the colour possibilities? It guarantees that my subjects will match well with the background. The ONE accent colour also works well with the neutral colours as well as being flexible to take off (hence why you can have accessories in accent colours) if they don’t match well.
In comes the Pearson family. Meeting them was entirely impromtu. My booked clients were a bit late and this family perfectly colour-coordinated for an autumn shoot was just getting ready to take photos of themselves with their iPhones. In steps me–an outgoing American–offering to take their photos! I couldn’t miss this opportunity to take photos of this beautiful family and their rustic-red and mountain-green colours perfectly blended together with sandy-tan and burnt-brown staples (trousers, shoes, etc). Take a look at their photos below and be inspired to coordinate your family photos like them! You won’t go wrong 😉
Who doesn’t love babies? Well, once you see this one, you’ll want one for yourself! Kayden is a smiley, bouncy, happy baby who is celebrating his FIRST Christmas this year! At the sound of his mother’s voice, he giggled, wriggled, laughed, and smiled. The perfect baby. You can see the joy that emanates from his eyes and you can feel the pride of his mother in each photo. Although it’s only October, it makes me want to say, “Merry Christmas!”
It started out a little difficult to get little Woody asleep, but once he got out under the sun, he smiled, relaxed, and fell into a deep sleep that lasted all the way until he had to get put into his car seat to go home! What a fun little boy with amazing parents. Congratulations, Erin and Nathan!
I absolutely love taking photos of newborns, but especially for my friends and birth students!! Look at this handsome new boy blessed by having the best parents I know. Congratulations Erin and Nathan, and stay tuned to see more of him featured on the blog!
I have teamed up with The Milky Way Project UK sharing that special bond between baby and mum on their breastfeeding journey. I am going to be offering breastfeeding sessions to capture a special moment for you to cherish.
These sessions will be free sessions as long as you are happy for your images to be used as part of the project to normalise breastfeeding. Your photographs may be purchased for print or download.
No age limits on the baby/child.
These will be taking place on various dates in February please comment below if you are interested or drop me a message. Also feel free to tag any of the breastfeeding mums you know.

Ok, I’m not going to hide the fact that yes, I used my little girl as a model. If you’re a photographer with children, you know you’ve done it. But I must say that this portrait session allowed me to push my boundaries and be more artistic and fantastical with my photo editing. Here are my favourite shots:
Nothing makes me happier than to take maternity photos! Maybe it’s because I’m expecting as well 🙂
Christina and Daniel are a beautiful pair. They are such hard workers for the kingdom of God working in a private Christian school. I was so happy to bless them with a maternity/family session! It was a frigid winter day to take photos, but they handled it well. Here’s a sample of their photo shoot:
This photo shoot was a fun impromptu session! I had a cancellation today, and was running errands at the post office on my half day and ran into some beautiful church friends. They were interested in letting me take pictures of them last minute!
