At Home Baby & Family Lifestyle Session I Woking Surrey Baby & Child Photographer

I've relocated from Kingston Upon Thames to Woking! But don't fear - I'm still photographing newborns, families, babies and events in all the same areas, it just now includes Woking as well! There are so many lovely green areas to photograph beautiful outdoor sessions in Woking, I can't wait to meet lots of new families as well as revisit all my amazing clients in Kingston, Richmond, Twickenham and surrounding Surrey areas to see how much their little ones have grown! In the meantime, here is the BEAUTIFUL Annabel and her Mum and Dad, a lifestyle photography session I did for them at their stunning home in Twickenham - she has THE most amazing eyes!

Yes, that is a Christmas tree in the background of some of the images! That is just how far behind with my blogging I am that the photography session of this lovely family is from December last year! But I just HAD to share Annabel - she is so adorable! 

Any questions or comments, please post below!

Much Love, Susie x

Sibling Photography: Three Brothers {Newborn & Family Photographer Kingston Surrey}

These boys. Capturing images like these is what I love. The variety of shots at a family lifestyle session capture the essence of your family - your child jumping on your bed, dinosaurs roaring towards my camera, holding your newborn in your arms - and then there's the moment when two little boys peer up at me with that look "we know the picture you're after - here it is", and, between all the excitement, there are moments like these that are frozen through imagery to be cherished forever:

And then there's the fun shots!...

Baby Theo is One! {On Location Family Photography Salisbury Wiltshire}

Back in June I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Donell family at their home in Salisbury! Baby Theo was so adorable crawling up to the camera - I love the close-ups of him and his cute little expressions! He crawled through his play tunnel to meet me at the other end with delightful enthusiasm - and I hope that shows in the pictures! After capturing some natural family photographs of them all together in their garden, we went on to Queen Elizabeth gardens to photograph Theo and his Mum together on the swings...

With each Blog Post I will answer a frequently asked question - so if you have any questions at all about photography, cameras, photo-shoots or anything in between, simply write your question in the blog comments space below!

Client Question 2: Should we order prints through you, or get them printed ourselves?
My Answer: My inclusive print-release that comes with all session bookings means you have total flexibility in how you get your photos printed. You can either print them at a high-street lab of your choice, or through me via my professional lab of choice - I love to give my clients the freedom to choose. So what's the difference? The difference between a professional lab print and high-street print is stark - not to go into too much technical detail, but essentially the quality, the colours, the calibration, the contrast, the paper and the longevity and overall look and feel of a pro-print are markedly above and beyond that of a 20p print from your high-street shop, and this is clearly visible when you place them side-by-side. However, each print type certainly serves a purpose depending on what you are wanting to do with your prints - if you are looking to post a couple of your favourite images to your Auntie Hilda in Australia, then high-street prints are perfect - a) they're affordable and b) it won't be a huge upset if they did happen to get lost or damaged in the post on their long journey (though of course you can still post a high-quality print if you want!). But, if you're looking to have your images in a feature collage at home on your wall, blown-up onto a large canvas or have a beautifully framed Fine-Art print - then a professional lab is most definitely the way to go and the products will stand the test of time.

Baby Rafe: At home with Mum & Dad {Tunbridge Wells Family Photographer}

Client Question 1: Do you cover my area?
My Answer: More than likely, yes! I happily venture far and wide for my photography sessions, and the variety in locations is simply fantastic! When I received the directions to this session, advising me to 'go past the Pooh Corner' and look for the signpost to Pooh Bridge footpath, I knew another beautiful and somewhat magical location was to come! So, off I trotted to Hartfield, the home town of A.A. Milne, to photograph a lovely family at home in their beautiful garden. The sun was shining (phew - a drastic and welcomed change from last weeks hailstone session!), pink blossom danced in the wind and the daffodils awaited their close-up. There is something really rather relaxed about home sessions - and how you feel when having your photograph taken can really make a huge difference to the resulting images. At your own home, you feel comfortable in your own space, children feel at-ease in the recognisable surroundings, and importantly the kettle is within arms reach when a break is needed! Not only that, but the images incorporate much more of your story - your garden, your home and the memories you have there, are all folded in to the images - there is so much more narrative than any plain white studio backdrop can provide. In-studio sessions can tend to be a little formal and rigid, and it can take a while for people to relax in the staged environment.  So, for me personally, I will be continuing on in my adventure to capture all you lovely families outside of a studio and inside your story. A.A. Milne would hopefully agree! Darling baby Rafe, here is one page of your book…

Wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the forest, a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.
― A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

Wishing everyone a happy Easter bank holiday weekend! Susie x


On-Location Family Session - What happens if it rains? { Salisbury Photographer }

Often people ask me "What happens if it rains on the day of our shoot?" It's a very good question - English weather is unpredictable to say the least. Now this lovely family were troopers! Seriously. It all started beautifully - we were walking through the New Forest, the sun was shining through the trees - perfect for some family photographs. After a while, we decided to relocate to more open space - we drove to a new spot, all sat down on the picnic blanket and within minutes were being swept away by what felt like gale force winds. Understandably little chap didn't like it much, and likewise neither did us grown-ups! It's hard to look comfortable when no-one really is - so the best thing to do? Stop, have a break and try again later. I say to families to allow a good couple of hours for their session - most people probably think "How on earth can it take two hours or more to take 25 photos?!" Weather. English weather is the answer. I want the photos I give to my clients to be the absolute best they can be and for everyone to have fun on the session - so, I don't put a time limit on my sessions :) We rendezvoused later in the day at Old Sarum - again, it looked like ideal weather until moments into the session torrential hail stones hit us and we were quickly drenched. Understandably, we took a rain-check after that and we casually walked (crazily speed-walked!) back to the car! I met up with Mum and son at their house during the week for some at-home lifestyle shots to finish the session - and no chance of the weather changing indoors! So in summary, weather happens. BUT - this session ended with a great variety of images and location backdrops - silver lining :) And I've got to give a big thank you to the family for being so patient. It's not fun getting hail stones thrown at your face, especially when you are trying to look beautifully posed for a camera! But, here are the results - I'm very pleased and I hope they are too :)

Logan Mia at home { Baby Photographer Salisbury & Kingston }

Introducing 8 month old Logan Mia - an at-home baby lifestyle session. I have a soft spot for this little lady - she's my niece! She smiles - a lot! In fact, her Mummy chose lots of images from the session where she wasn't smiling, because she wanted to capture her baby girl as she was at this age - some images with no smiles, no distractions, simply her beautiful face and features. So - voila! A selection of photographs of her fabulous grin as well as some 'serious' Logan faces!
