1st Birthday - London Family Photographer
I don't know about you but cake smash photoshoots just aren't for me, nor are they for my clients. I much prefer the timeless intimate photos of a an afternoon spent in the park - capturing the real and normal moments a family share in a beautiful timeless way.
Nothing too staged that will eventually date but images taken from real life. This 1st birthday photoshoot was taken in a small park in North London where this family spend a lot of their weekends together having picnics and hanging out, they will be able to proudly show these images as honest moments of their life at this time, the place where their son took some of his first steps and they spent hours under the sun reading and playing x

On a beautiful spring day I had the fortune to visit this beautiful family and capture their new baby boy and his two very proud big sisters. To be invited into a family's home during such a special time is an absolute privilege I take it very seriously that the images I'm capturing during this time will be amongst a family's most treasured memories. Its so important to me that the whole experience is calm and fun and memorable in its own right x
Wandsworth Common Family Photographer
On one of the most beautiful days of the year, in late Autumn I travelled into London to capture this family at their home and on Wandsworth Common. The light was perfect! Better even than summertime sunsets, like golden hour... all day long...Magic!
London Newborn Photographer
Today we're going back to April this year when I met Aiden, a perfect, beautiful week old baby boy and his lovely Mama and Dada for his newborn photographs. I went to their home in North London on a beautiful spring day to meet them all and capture this special time.
I only recently realised that I haven't updated my blog for nearly six months! I've been busy... with shoots here at Tantrum and also on a new venture I've been working on. Tantrum isn't going anywhere! But I hope to run a lifestyle photography business for small business owners alongside it. If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know I've been working with the amazing Ruth Hoskins at Palm Creative Tribe who's helping me dig deep to develop the creative business I've always dreamed of having so please follow along with me there to get more updates.

London Baby Photographer
Being a photographer in London I am happy to travel all over the capital to photograph families in their homes. Why? I have thought many times about having a studio and having clients come to me, I would have more control over lighting, I could fit more clients in a day, my images would have more continuity in style. But nearly all of my newborn clients comment on how glad they are that they could have their session in their own home, particularly those who may have had a stressful birth or have older siblings, it makes the whole session just so much less stressful for them. With older siblings, I feel like they are so much more relaxed and I can really capture their personalities, they show me their room, their favourite toys and books and really its just a ball, and at the end of it all their photos are their own in their own home, so personal... just take a look a these two beautiful boys captured in their own home ♡

First Year Photo Session Primrose Hill
Sunny Primrose Hill in London was the perfect backdrop for a photo-session with lovely clients I had met the year prior when they had just welcomed their baby girl. This is a special place for this beautiful family who wanted to have their daughters first year session where they had spent so much time becoming a family together.
As a location based photographer I travel across London for photo-sessions and its really important to me that the location chosen by clients is somewhere that is special to them, that way i know their photographs will become treasured memories of their lives as a young family. For some this is in their home or in the beautiful green spaces london has to offer, for others it might be both and I am more than happy to split a session between home and the park - time and weather permitting of course!!
