From baby … to big brother
I’ve photographed this little boy a few times now, first as a newborn and then again to mark his first birthday and now here he is; a big brother to a little sister. I’ve met so many lovely families since starting this business and it’s such a privilege to have them return so that I can document their parenting journey.
“Beth has beautifully captured such a special and lovely time in our son’s life, being just 1. He took some time to settle in and wasn’t the easiest customer but Beth was very patient and helpful in getting the most out of him without being pushy or making us or him feel uncomfortable. The pictures are just incredible. Natural, beautiful and simple yet they capture his complete personality which is exactly what we wanted. The problem is not being able to pick them all. We were recommended by a friend and won’t hesitate to pass on that recommendation. Many many thanks Beth!!”
I love the creative opportunities that can be found in a sunset session. The low-level light has the power to transform a photograph into something truly magical. I love playing with the effects that can be created when sunlight hits the front of the lens; that dreamy haze, the rim lighting and those flares for added drama.
All these things can combine to create images that are full of light … and love.
“Thank you so much for these beautiful memories. We have received so many lovely comments from friends and family.”
“This is the second time we have used Beth and the photos she produces are exceptional! She is very welcoming, patient with the little ones and creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend every time. Don’t look anywhere else! Thanks again Beth, the photos are wonderful.”
No matter how old a firstborn child is, they’ll have some adjusting to do when a brother or a sister comes on the scene. As a Sussex newborn photographer, I’m sensitive to the fact that it can be quite an unsettling time for them so I like to take the opportunity to make them feel special, for them to dress up and have a few photos on their own. There’s no pressure for them to cuddle or interact with their new brother or sister. We take things at their pace and, when they’re ready, I’ll be there to simply capture the moment.
Lovely to see this little one and his parents back in the studio, having first photographed him as a newborn.
