Valentine’s Night In!

Valentine’s Night In!

all you need is love

Valentine’s Day is a totally different affair when you have a baby or young children, your probably very tired and may also find it difficult to get a baby sitter. All is not lost as I have pulled together some-must watch romantic movies and easy dinner ideas for a great Valentine’s night IN.

It’s also a great idea to get the family albums and photos out and reminisce over special moments that have been captured in photographs, not just as a couple but as a family.  I love to capture photo memories for my own family and for others,  I do like the fun everyday pictures but you can’t beat a professional studio portrait for really amazing quality images that you can treasure forever. You will never regret spending money on creating family memories that will get passed down through the generations.

Kids Christmas TV

Kids Christmas TV

I just love looking through the TV guide at Christmas, but every year it gets bigger and bigger, so I have created a little guide to the best bits for kids to save you some time.

You can download it and print it out then you have it handy over the festive period.

Christmas Cube Sessions

Christmas Cube Sessions

cube 1

Lots of fun and something a bit different, I made Christmas cards out of my pictures last year and everyone commented on them. I even managed to squeeze my 6 foot teenager into the cube.

ollie and ste

How does it work?

Basically, I have one ‘Cube’ in my studio , so your child/children jump in and out of the Cube, getting into different positions and possibly adding different props each time.

I have lots of Christmas props for you to use but feel free to bring some of your own!

I then work my magic on the Cubes and edit them all together.

Suitable for 1-9 children, age 7 months to approx age 12.

Brilliant for friends, families, cousins, etc. and the styles/ themes are endless!

Birthdays, Christmas, Favourite toys, etc

Your only limited by your own imagination!

Price £70, Deposit £35, rest due on the day

Check out slots available

Can’t wait to see you in your Christmas jumpers

Kind Regards

Its always best to get your images as perfect as you can in camera and then just a little enhancing in Lightroom/Photoshop is needed.

Ever wondered what really goes on during a Newborn Portrait Session?

Newborn Photographer Chorley

A Newborn Photo session is a nice cosy, warm and relaxing morning, where you can concentrate 100% on how cute and precious your baby is.

When you arrive at my home studio in Chorley you can make yourself at home and we can unwrap your little bundle.  It will be very warm in my studio so dress comfortably.  Let me know beforehand if you would like images with your baby or/and would like to bring an older brother or sister.

I allow 2-3 hours for your session so there is plenty of time for cuddles and feeding etc.  It is completely led by your baby’s needs.  Your baby’s safety and comfort is my priority and I am trained in safe baby posing . I am also a member of BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photographers Association) who promote safe working practices.  Take a look at their website, it has lots of info for Parents too.

 

 

If baby stays asleep once undressed I will begin to place baby in lovely curled up poses, if not we can carry on and do some awake shots (lots of Parents of Parents love the connection with their baby when their eyes are open). Then when baby is ready for a feed, that usually sends them into a lovely ‘milky’ sleep. Then I can carry on and take those lovely sleepy pictures everyone loves so much.

Lots of Parents worry about baby not sleeping or that they may wee or poo an my blankets, this is quite normal so please don’t worry, everything is washable and most babies sleep at some point during the session. I have been photographing babies for almost 5 years and I have lots of experience and tricks to help lull babies into a deep sleep.

If you would like images with baby I will do those usually at the beginning or sometimes at the end of the session depending on baby.  The pictures look lovely if you wear fairly neutral colours eg. whites, grays etc. Also if you want family/sibling pictures I would try and get these at the beginning of the session before toddlers and older children get bored. It often happens were little ones  need a bit more time to get use to their surroundings so in this case I will do these photos later.  I have a few things for your children to play with but feel free to bring your own inc. snacks and drinks.

My aim is for you to enjoy 2-3 hours relaxation and to create some amazing images for you to treasure forever (cheesy but true)

Lots of people ring when baby is 6-8 weeks old trying to book a newborn session, as they didn’t think to book whilst pregnant, and are disappointed that they have missed the best age, which is 1-3 weeks old (while baby is still sleepy and can curl up into the poses)    More info on when to book – HERE

Don’t miss out on capturing your baby’s first few weeks, best to book your due date in while pregnant!
