Family photos at home in Romford, Essex
Just look at that cheeky little smile! Meet baby Eli. I had so much fun with him and his parents - Amy and Elj - when I photographed them at their beautiful home in Romford back in December.
This family shoot was a baby shower gift from Amy’s friends. So thoughtful! Sadly COVID put paid to our plans for a newborn session and baby Eli was almost eight months by the time we were able to get together. I can’t tell you how lovely it was to finally get to meet Amy and Elj and to say hello to little Eli. He is a real bundle of energy, so cheeky and just loved flashing that grin at the camera!
At home family photography
My newborn and baby photography sessions always take place in your home. This is the place your child knows best and where they are most comfortable. They can explore, tumble and play in a safe environment, which helps keep things stress free for you parents as well! It also means no rushing around, worrying about being late or trying to remember everything you need!
All of my family shoots are very relaxed and natural. No posing, no huge lights or bulky equipment. I’m simply there to capture your family in that moment, whether that’s cuddling together on your sofa, playing in the garden or reading a favourite story. I love seeing the connection between you all and capturing everyone’s personality. Eli’s character really shone during our shoot, he loved giggling with his parents, ‘posing’ for photographs and playing in front of the Christmas tree, which he was utterly fascinated by! The photographs are a lovely little glimpse into your family life which is so precious to look back on.
Christmas family photography session
One of the positives of our original newborn shoot being so delayed was that Amy, Elj and Eli could have a festive family session instead. Their beautifully decorated Christmas tree made a lovely, twinkly backdrop for photographs of little Eli. It was the perfect way to mark his first Christmas! As an added bonus, prints from a family shoot also make fantastic gifts for loved ones, or are a great way to create a unique Christmas card!
If you’d like your own newborn or family shoot, or would love to gift a photography session to a loved one or expectant mother, please get in touch. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
