Bump to Baby – A at home photo session in Leigh-On-Sea, Essex – Newborn & Family Photographer in Essex

What can be more personal than photographing a wedding, a pregnancy or your first days as a new mother. I always feel privileged when I get to capture those moments.

I am so glad I got to meet Alison and James on their journey to becoming parents.

It was a relaxing maternity session when we booked Alison then 34 weeks pregnant. She was radiant and healthy. It makes me wish I had recorded in the same way my own pregnancy. Looking back at those quick snaps of mine – maternity sessions were at the time not that popular yet – I am amazed to see what my belly looked like, it would have been nice to have some properly lit images without a door frame or the lounge curtains as a background.

Maternity images are very personal and for the family to enjoy so I haven’t shared any on here in this instance but fortunately we get to view some of scrummy baby Leo’s pics when he eventually decided to make an appearance. ‘Good things come to those who wait’ – I guess it’s appropriate. For their newborn session I went back to the family’s home as Leo was only 6 days old, it was more relaxing for the new parents to have someone come to them. We fitted in the session in between the midwife visit, the feeds and the nappy changes.

Wishing Alison and James many happy years with their new bundle of joy x
