When you’ve just had a baby, life can get a little topsy-turvy. Whether it’s your first baby and you’re trying to negotiate wriggly, jerky arms into sleepsuits, or you’re a seasoned mummy juggling your potty-training toddler and a gorgeously hungry baby. Those early days can sometimes feel like a whirlwind of survival. With no Bear Grylls or Supernanny on standby to get you through it.
Meanwhile your heart is literally exploding with love. You desperately want to capture these early days of teeny tiny hands and feet, but the thought of letting a photographer into your home or leaving the house to go to their studio fills you with fear. You wouldn’t be the first to feel like this. And you won’t be the last. I totally understand those beautiful early days. I’ve been through it twice myself. Which is why I go out of my way to create a very relaxing photoshoot, whether it be in the comfort of your own home or in my home-studio.
If I come to your home I like to capture you all getting to know your new family member. Lazy cuddles with daddy or lying on the floor with an older sibling or cradling their tiny feet in your hands. Natural and relaxed images that let time stand still and create lasting memories for you all.
I also offer a studio-style newborn photography shoot where we capture your newborn in a few different cute poses in my home studio. Nestled in a basket or curled up in their own skin with a gorgeous little hat. I have been trained by one of the country’s leading newborn photographer’s to ensure the safety of your baby. So you can sit down and relax with a hot cup of tea and let me capture those images that you will treasure forever.
“Tes is very professional and great with kids. I am so pleased with the photos we had a lovely time.” Fabiana McGeachie
“I was anxious how my baby would be and I was nervous how I would cope. But Tes made me feel very welcome and comfortable in her home- studio. My daughter was very well taken care of and Tes was extremely patient with her while she pooped and fed. The whole experience was lovely and very relaxed which would encourage me to do it again! I’m so happy with the pictures!!” Rakhee O’Connell
