From bump to baby with love
I decided to call this blog ‘From bump to baby with love’, as a way to show how much I have loved, following the journey from the “bump to baby” of this little boy and his family.
He is now 6 months old and I first did a pregnancy photoshoot his mummy when she was pregnant last summer. That was during a hot summer spell in Clapham Common. The next time I saw him was for the newborn photography session, when he was just born at around 3 weeks old.
Following on I saw him again when he was 4 months old for a Christmas family mini session. And most lately I took these photos of him when he reached 6 months.
It has been so lovely to follow this family from the early days when they were expecting their first baby through to now, when their little boy is 6 months old.
“The bump to the baby” package is ideal just for that to document the different milestones and create precious memories you can go back to and enjoy in years to come.

How do you feel when you look back at your baby’s photographs. Do you think, “aw look at the little toes and fingers, how little he was. He has changed so much”?
Photography has the power to remind us of a moment we might not even remember as our lives are busy and time flies. In fact how many times do we realise that the photographs are what makes our memory. We think back and use photographs of moments as the key reference points in memory for the years that have passed.
Having photographs taken by a professional photographer, make the moments even more memorable as it is a special occasion and experience. The way the photographer interacts with us, what they ask to do, what they say, how they help us relax makes an imprint in our brain as we don’t have that experience very often.

As a baby photographer in London I interact with many families and babies and I see them at different stages of their lives. From being in the bump during the pregnancy, to once they’re tiny little newborns and when they grow up and start walking and talking.
I love seeing the families and the babies grow and evolve because that is how life works, we all evolve and change from one stage to another.
Capturing that and creating beautiful memories is part of my mission and work hard at my craft.
Book a Bump to Baby photoshoot!
A bump to baby photoshoot is the ideal complete package that allows you to document and capture the very special milestones of you being pregnant, expecting a new baby and seeing them grow during their first year.
The bump to baby bundle offers great savings compared to each of the different sessions separately. And on top of all, the maternity photography session is free with the bump o baby bundle. But first let’s see what is included.

- One year old “cake smash” shoot – pre-consultation call one week before the shoot; the session and the use of props and a variety of backgrounds; 6 edited digital photos and 2, 7×5 prints mounted and ready to be framed.
When is the best time to do the newborn photography shoot?
Newborn photography has one essential ingredient, that is that the baby is asleep for all or some of the session. The allows the photographer to capture the dreamy sleepy photos and photograph the baby undisturbed.
To be able to achieve the sleepy photographs, babies in the first 2 weeks after birth are at the ideal stage as they sleep a lot and they don not wake up when moved.
However with an experienced photographer even older babies can sleep for some of the session, so timings can be flexible and work around you and your baby.
What is the cost of the Bump to Baby package?
Prices start from £450 for “Collection 0” giving you incredible value and a number of digital and print products, 3 digitals and 3 prints from each of the three sessions including the pregnancy photoshoot.
It is possible to upgrade to the “Collection I” at £600 which includes all the three sessions (newborn, 6 months, 1 year and the pregnancy photoshoot) for 5 digitals and 5 prints. This package gives more flexibility in choosing the digitals and prints for you to keep and treasure.
“Collection II” is £800 and includes all the four sessions above and in addition 10 digitals and 10 prints from each of the sessions.
Additional images can be purchased separately at £20 per digital photo and we can discuss other print options.
Having the images printed and displayed in your house is part of the experience of cherishing the unique memories of the past, and I would be happy to recommend options to you.
