Family Portrait Photographer St Albans

Family Portrait Photographer St Albans

One of the many great pleasures of photographing families is that I can return to see clients over and over.  I am lucky enough to photograph new babies that join the family and other children as they grow and change.   It’s a wonderful way to get to know the families as well.

I had done a bump shoot for this gorgeous family a few weeks before and so it was lovely to return and photograph their new baby girl and see her older brother so excited about having a little sister.

Capturing those early days and weeks with a new baby is very special and one of the things I love to photograph the most.   Though based near Milton Keynes I’m happy to travel and I cover Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire.  Sometimes I go further afield – do feel free to ask – an additional travel fee may apply.

I hope you enjoy these newborn images of this gorgeous little lady taken in St Albans.

I photograph a lot of newborn babies which I love as they are so tiny and you can create some beautiful images when they are asleep and can be posed curled up in the fetal position.  However it is also wonderful to photograph babies when they are a little older and are starting to really get a lovely personality.  I love to see their cheeky little faces light up with smiles.

This little fella was a particular joy to photograph as he was such a happy little soul with the most stunning big blue eyes.  I met his gorgeous Mummy a few years ago on an overland trip in South America and it was just fabulous to catch up, meet her husband and photograph their little baby boy.

I hope you like this small selection from the baby shoot near Hitchen in Hertfordshire.

It can be pretty tiring being as gorgeous as this little fella so he needed a bit of a power nap part way through the shoot.

He was soon up again and turning on the charm and fluttering his amazing eyelashes – just beautiful !

Here are some images from a baby session done in Watford a few months ago.  The Spring and Summer whizzed by so fast that I didn’t get a chance to blog lots of the fabulous sessions that I did with families all over Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.

This little boy was lovely to work with – he was sleepy and peaceful and it was really enjoyable session.  Some poses can only be achieved with babies if they are very sleepy which I why I recommend that if possible shoots take place in the first two weeks after the baby is born.  Here is a small selection from the shoot.

As this was a Spring session it was lovely to pop outside at the end and get a picture under the blossom tree

I love this recent Newborn Session in St Albans in Hertfordshire.  This little chap is the nephew of someone whose family I have photographed a few times so it was an absolute treat to meet him.  He was just such a beautiful little boy.  Argghghghghhhh… Broody alert !

He was a lovely chilled out little chap and was the perfect model throughout the shoot.   He was a dream to pose and photograph both on his own and with his gorgeous mum.  In fact these are some of my favourite Mum and Baby photos to date.

I hope you enjoy looking through these newborn images – just for reference the little boy was 2.5 weeks old when I did the shoot.

If you would like to have some images of your new baby when they are still tiny you really need to get in touch and provisionally book after your 20 week scan or around half way through the pregnancy.  I will pencil in a due date and we can juggle the date for the shoot as soon as your baby has arrived safely and you know when you are going to be home.  Please email info@siobhanmurphynewborns.co.uk.

I recently did a very special newborn session in Towcester, Northamptonshire.  I was contacted by a former Bride and Groom to say they had a new baby and would love to have me take the images as I’d taken their wedding images a few years ago. They felt it would be lovely to have the consistency of photographer, which was really very nice.  These days of course I do far fewer weddings and really concentrate on babies and family photography as that is really where my heart lies.   It was so wonderful to hear their fabulous news and even lovelier to go and catch up with them and meet their little boy.

I spent a really relaxing morning with them, so nice to see each other again and chat about the intervening years.  Their little boy was around 4 weeks when I did the shoot so was lovely an alert so it was great to get a real mixture of shots of him both asleep and awake.  I love to do a mix of sleepy posed shots and more interactive lifestyle shots with Mum and Dad as this represents a real snapshot of an average day with a very young baby.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the day.
