It was so lovely seeing how the tiny newborn I photographed has become her own little person - funny, full of character and smiles! I met her adorable baby brother and photographed the whole family together in a lifestyle newborn photo session at their home in Surrey. I loved seeing them all again - such a lovely family!

"Welcome 48" Documentary Newborn Photography Session - What is it? 

In Hospital Newborn Family Photographys_Surrey_Copyright Susie Fisher Photography 2017

This is a photography session for families who want the first hours of their newborn’s life captured but not have the birth/labour documented.  I come to your hospital/birth centre/home after your baby is born and capture the story of your newborn at just a few hours or days old!

Photographed within 24-48 hours of your baby’s arrival, these documentary sessions perfectly capture the details of these first precious moments that you want to remember forever - tiny feet, milk spots, eyelashes, yawns, first tears, cuddles, a sibling meeting their baby brother/sister for the first time, alongside the details of the room, flowers, hospital bracelet, hospital blanket, momentos and most importantly, images of both parents together with their little one - neither one hidden behind the camera!  

The post-delivery time when you are bonding with your child is something to be cherished. This documentary lifestyle session takes place when emotions are still high and everything is brand new: there is so much going on in those first few days, a whirlwind of treasurable firsts that should be captured - I aim to photograph these moments and feelings for you, creating tangible memories that can be held dear forever. 

It’s different to an at-home newborn session - there will be no props or posing, just beautiful organic moments - lifestyle photography at it’s core.

How does it work?

I’m on-call around your due date, ready to come to your place of delivery or your home when you’re ready for me. The session takes place during daylight within the first 48 hours of delivery and lasts approximately 1.5 hours. I will present an online gallery of high-resolution edited images with a combination of colour and black and white edits. 

Enough chit-chat - let me SHOW you what these session images look like!…

Meet THE most adorable baby girl - at just 1 DAY OLD! I travelled to St Thomas’ Hospital the day after she arrived, capturing the proud parents, their beautiful baby girl and everything that made up their story...

Children’s Birthday Party Photography {Event Photographer Woking & Guildford}

Hire a photographer for your child's birthday party and ...

  • There’s no more worrying about capturing everything yourself
  • You won't have your camera/iPhone plastered to your face for the entire day
  • Zero rushing around asking everyone to smile and pose
  • Everyone is in the photographs - for many, having all the family together in one place is rare, so it's a great time to update the family album with images of everyone invited enjoying and celebrating your child's special day.

- you get to enjoy your child's birthday, safe in the knowledge that someone else is getting all those special moments on camera for you!

From parties at home, hired halls, soft play centres, an indoor trampoline park and even a paintball party - I’ve photographed it! Whatever you have planned for a children's party, I sweep around the venue capturing smiles and key moments! Take a look at Evaan’s 1st Birthday below - I captured his cousin’s birthday party earlier in the year and it was so lovely seeing this family again! It was an early evening event which meant... amazing fireworks! - A fabulous end to the evening to celebrate little Evaan’s first year.

Professional Headshot Photography in Woking & Guildford for Social Media

Did you know that as well as children and family photography, I also offer professional headshots!? Yes sir-y. Seb over at Ellis Social Media (ESM) recently contacted me to do his and his employees headshots for their website, alongside some team photos - ESM are a digital media agency based in Weybridge offering cost-effective solutions for businesses to reach their prospective customers via Social Media/Google in a fun and innovative style - and they needed some headshots to match! Seb didn’t want the traditional bland backdrop style images, he wanted some outdoor relaxed yet professional headshots - so we headed to Horsell Common, just outside of Woking, and here are the results…

Newborn photography sessions are a perfect time to not only get some professional photos of the newest member of the family at just a few days old, but also to get some photos of the whole family together - incorporate a newborn session with a family session and a sibling session - then pick your favourite photos form the whole bunch! I LOVE sibling photos, and group family photos on the bed are always entertaining! …

First up, some photos of sleepy newborn baby James on his own...

A Hampton Court Wedding Reception! {Woking & Guildford Wedding Photographer}

Jennifer and Derrick got married in Arizona (wow!) so had a beautiful festive reception just before Christmas at Hampton Court Palace Golf Club, Kingston upon Thames, to celebrate their union with their UK family and friends! Hampton Court Palace Golf Club provided a STUNNING backdrop of Royal Bushy Park and Hampton Court Palace - perfect for Jennifer and Derrick’s bride & groom portrait session, where they were both absolute troopers, braving the cold for some misty Bride & Groom photos in the park! This was such a lovely day!

No word of a lie, it was freezing! But Jennifer braved it and took off her coat for a few of the shots to show off her amazing dress - LOVE love love backless dresses!!

Outdoor Family Photo Session I Woking Baby Child & Family Photographer

I LOVE love love seeing families again! Amelie was just a few days old when I photographed her in August 2014 and now she’s a BIG SISTER to the adorable Charlotte! It’s amazing to photograph the changes and meet and capture new family members! Amelie’s newborn session was at their home in Kingston Upon Thames, with a mixture of posed images and natural lifestyle family photographs. This time, 2 years on, we did an on-location outdoor family session - perfect for getting some candid photos of these beautiful sisters in a leafy autumnal backdrop as well as some family shots of them all together. The Paice’s are SUCH a lovely family and the girls are utterly adorable - I hope this shows in their photos! You can see a throwback to their 2014 session at the bottom - see how much Amelie has grown!

Birth Photography: it's a thing - an amazing thing. {Woking Surrey Photographer}

When I tell people I do birth photography, many screw their faces up with bewilderment and ask why on earth women would want their labour captured. In short, to say the images are immensely powerful is an understatement - they offer parents a tangible record of their child's birth, their first breaths, the very first moments of meeting their newborn! I document the specific details of the day, all the little subtleties that make up their birth story that can typically go unnoticed during the intense and emotional labour process and which can quickly be forgotten. The different stages of the birth are captured, the very first minutes of the baby’s life are documented - without parents having to think about taking photos themselves, allowing them to be fully present in the moment

At the start of the year, I began offering my services as a birth photographer in Surrey and I’m so excited to share with you the images from one of my first birth photography sessions:

Back in March, I captured the birth of Siobhan’s third baby boy, Ailbe Fox, at West Middlesex University Hospital, Queen Mary’s Maternity Unit, in the Natural Birth Centre. Siobhan is a Mum to three boys, a hypnobirthing teacher and founder of The Positive Birth Company. She also writes the blog The Double Mama. She currently offers hypnobirthing classes in London and Devon. Yes, she is superwoman!

So, what's this all about? Why are people choosing to have a professional photographer, a stranger(!), at such a private event?

I asked Siobhan...

Q: Why did you choose to have a birth photographer?  

"I had the most beautiful magical home birth with my second baby. It was Christmas time and he was born in front of the Christmas tree. It was a picture-perfect scene. My only regret is that I have only one photo from the day. The photo was taken by partner moments after I gave birth and although I treasure it, it's quite out of focus and not exactly well-framed. I knew then that if I were to have another baby I would definitely get a birth photographer to attend. People don't think twice about booking a photographer for a wedding because it's a special day that they want to remember forever. In my opinion the same goes for birth. It's the most important day of your life and you're usually so preoccupied with being in labour and actually birthing the small human that your memories are pretty hazy. I wanted to have my birth documented so that I could always look back on my photos and remember what an incredible time it was."

Q: How do the resulting images make you feel? 

"I am so so proud of the photos I have of my third baby's birth. They show what a calm, serene and beautiful birth it was. I love to share them because I want other women to know that this is what birth looks like! Not the drama, and often horror, you see on the telly. Birth can be beautiful and I'm so happy that I have photos to prove this."

Q: Would you recommend having a birth photographer? 

"Absolutely 100 million per cent! Hand on heart I can say you won't have any regrets. Does anyone ever regret having photos?! Susie was amazing and so discreet that I wasn't even aware she was in the room. If inhibitions are stopping you, know that by the time you are giving birth and are in the zone, you will feel a lot less inhibited. Plus you can always wear a bikini top in a birth pool like I did!"

A selection of images from Siobhan’s Birth Story: 

* PLEASE NOTE - this gallery exemplifies Siobhan’s story - she opted for a dark room lit only by LED candle light - every birth story is different and the resulting images are impacted hugely by the amount of light in the room. The darker the room, the grainier the images will be. I only shoot with available light during these sessions to ensure there is no distracting flash lighting. Birth photography is documentary photography - everything is captured exactly as it is, nothing is moved or altered and post-processing of the images is kept to a minimum to ensure the images truly reflect the story.

The Maternity team at West Mid Hospital were truly amazing - I watched on with oodles of respect for them as they calmly ensured the safe arrival of this little boy. Ailbe Fox was born at 3.36pm:

Laura & Jamie Got Married! Surbiton & Kingston Wedding Photographer

Laura & Jamie had a crisp November wedding at Glenmore House in Surbiton, a stones throw from where they live. Seeing them at their home the day before the wedding for a sneaky rooftop engagement photography session made them feel comfortable in front of the camera for the big day and gave us a chance to talk about all their fantastic ideas that had come together - Laura and her bridesmaids made their own bouquets, and what an amazing job they did - a brilliant idea and stunning bouquets! On the day they braved the cold for bride and groom portraits in Claremont Gardens and they were absolute pros at posing naturally! I hope you love the photos - these guys are truly a lovely couple, and I wish them a wonderful life together! Here are some of my favourites from the day - if this fabulous couples' wedding doesn't get you in the festive spirit I don't know what will! 

Merry Christmas one and all! Susie x

An Italian Wedding in Weybridge I Oatlands Park Hotel Wedding Photography

Recently I had the pleasure of second-shooting for Charlie Campey Photography at Antonella and Augusto's Wedding at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey. My first Italian wedding and wow - Italians sure can party! Conga line - check. Bride being carried - check. Groom being carried (!) - check! It was fun-filled from start to finish - are all Italian weddings like this?! I hope so! This wedding is a great example of when evening wedding photography coverage is a must - these are some of my favourite dancing shots! Oh, and fact of the day, the great cedar tree at the front of Oatlands Park hotel was planted by Charles I to celebrate the birth of his son (I love me some history)!

Aaaaaand the night wouldn't be complete without a crazy conga wedding party line

Weybridge Wedding Photographer_Copyright Susie Fisher.jpg

Q. Client Question: What is a second-shooter and why do photographer's have them?

A. When my friend's ask me what I did at the weekend, and I reply saying "I second-shot a wedding", the response I usually get is "You did what?" 

For those that wonder what second-shooting is - essentially this is when the primary shooter (the photographer you hired to photograph your wedding) brings another photographer with them - their "second". The extra photographer on the same job works in unison with the lead photographer, adding another dimension to the visual record of the day. For example, the lead shooter will most likely stand at the front during the ceremony to capture the bride and groom, while the second-shooter will most likely be at the back of the room/church capturing the entire scene. As you can see above, those little children watching the ceremony in the aisle were adorable - my position at the back of the room meant I was there to see it happening and ultimately capture a part of the story of the day that the bride and groom may never have known about otherwise.

Essentially, you can’t be in two places at once - weddings often have strict timelines and the moment the bride’s Dad walks in to the room to see his beautiful daughter in her dress for the first time, may well be the same time that the groom is having his boutonniere put on by his Mum - both key moments that ideally you want captured. A second shooter provides backup, logistical support if necessary and another view of the wedding day captured on camera. 

Thank you so much to Charlie for inviting me to second-shoot this amazing Oatlands Park Hotel wedding!

Love, Susie x

1st Birthday Cake Smash Photography {Kingston Upon Thames Surrey Photographer}

Beautiful Aavi absolutely rocked her 1st Birthday Cake Smash! These sessions are perfect if you want something a little bit different, to capture some adorable expressions as your little one revels in the fact that they're allowed to smash up a cake and get messy! They're all the rage in America for first Birthday photo-shoots - but I fully recommend them for ages 1 - 100! Because, let's face it - who doesn't love cake? S xx

Pre-smashed cake lovingly crafted by Aavi's Mum….and Aavi a little skeptical by all of us insisting she really can demolish her Mummy's handy work!...

Looking pretty in pink - a perfect colour scheme and outfit selection by Mum. 

Yummy Cake Smash! Crumbs ahoy...

Erm, Mummy, Daddy... I made a teensy little mess…
