Good Morning Folks,

Welcome to the world baby girl! Say hello to Amelia a gorgeous newborn who I photographed in East Grinstead recently.

I was Mummy and Daddy’s wedding photographer; we had great fun at their Tunbridge Wells wedding and now I was thrilled to meet and photograph little Amelia. This is the most wonderful part of the job I do; to be a part of a new chapter in a couple’s life but then to continue to see all their happiest moments. How lucky am I!

There is nothing quite like an e-mail or text with that first scan picture and I am always so, so touched to be a part of the big news, it never fails to make me a little teary to be honest. Ameila sent me an e-mail with her very first picture whilst she was still in hospital (she is a very clever little girly) and we arranged for her to have a debut in front of the cameras and what a little star she was too. She is beautiful and was no trouble at all during the shoot. As with all newborn shoots, once the nappy is off you can guarantee that we will receive some presents and it is nothing to worry about and quite normal but it did make Pete and I laugh when Lisa ran off in the opposite direction with the nappy!! We all sniggered quietly like children for a few minutes before getting back to the job of photographing our little star.

So today I have chosen three images; gorgeous is all warm and snug having a snooze on a cosy blanket, in image two Jemima Puddleduck joins the party and I have used a different sort of light for image three to create something just a little different.

I cannot wait to photograph Amelia again to see how she has grown and she is going to be a real stunner but Dad has already put her name down to be a Nun…dream on Dad! 🙂
