Newborn Photographer Leighton Buzzard

Newborn Photographer Leighton Buzzard.

It’s been a busy start to the year as a newborn photographer with quite a few gorgeous little babies being born.  This has been really lovely for me – though bad for the broody side of me – but has also put me a little behind on the blog.  I thoroughly enjoyed this recent newborn shoot in Leighton Buzzard, with a really alert little baby girl who was around 11 days old.  As always I suggest the shoot take place as soon as possible while the little one is still small enough to happily curl into the poses.

It was a really nice relaxed session – being in your own home for the shoot makes it much easier – and we managed to a get a lovely variety of shots in different poses since she was a very cooperative little girl.  I particularly liked the ones of her in the nursery and with her cuddly rabbit towards the end.

She was a little star without her nappy as well and didn’t manage to christen any of my blankets with gifts – always a bonus for a newborn photographer !

I hope you enjoy this selection of newborn images.

Bump and Newborn Shoot – Minki Van der Westhuizen

Bump and newborn shoot – Minki Van der Westhuizen.

Thought it would brighten up a dull winter’s day to share a 2 lovely shoots I did back in the summer.  They were a bump session and later a newborn session with the lovely model Minki Van der Westhuizen and her gorgeous family. I have photographed the family before when the little girl was born.   She was just a year old for the bump shoot and the magazines in South Africa were keen to feature of shoot of Minki with her fabulous bump and gorgeous husband and daughter.

The shoot was in the early morning sun and was beautiful.  Maternity photos are very special to have and remind you of how your bump looked and your shape changed before the baby came along.  Having another little one there can really make the shoot more fun.  So here are a few from the sunny bump shoot.


It was wonderful to go back for the newborn shoot and meet the new little lady to join the family.  She was just adorable and her big sister was really cute with her.  Hard to narrow the pictures down but here are few that I really loved.

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
