Newborn session

Taking time out for yourself and your newborn baby may be the last thing on your mind in the first few days and weeks after giving birth.  That’s why I pride myself in making your newborn photoshoot as seamless and comfortable as you deserve.  Your newborn will change so quickly in the first few weeks; let me capture those tiny toes and that button nose.  That fine hair that graces your baby’s back and shoulders, your baby naturally curled up in the fetal position, still adjusting to not being in mummy’s tummy anymore.  I love capturing individual details that are so unique to every baby and so beautiful to capture.  My natural newborn sessions enable me to photograph your newborn as they are so that when you look back at your photographs, they spark such special memories.  

I recommend your photoshoot takes place within the first two weeks of your baby’s arrival.  My styling of the baby is very organic, using light and neutral tones in my props including blankets and hats.  The photoshoot is very much baby led and need to allow up to 3 hours for the shoot, so we can take a break for feeds, changes or just time out for a cuppa if needed.

I offer home sessions and studio photoshoots, and take very natural, reportage images of your baby and can include shots of siblings and parents.  I’ll also use a few simple props to take slightly styled photographs of your baby. 

We all know our little ones will make an appearance when they are good and ready – so with this is mind I am completely flexible with your booking.  I recommend you book your photoshoot just after your 20 week scan.  I only have a limited of sessions booked per month, so please do contact me as soon as you can to see if your due date is available.  All I require to secure your booking is payment of the session fee as a deposit.  Once your baby has arrived,  let me know and we can go ahead and confirm a date and time. 

Once your session has been booked, I’ll send you a confirmation email which will include details of the session and information on what to expect from the session and how best to prepare.  It will also include information on when you will receive your images and next steps.   Further to this I am always happy to schedule a call to chat things through or over email.

 

Sitter session

Capturing your baby around the age of 6-8 months old is a wonderful opportunity to really see their little personalities shine.  They really come into their own, fascinated by the world around them.  Confidently sitting unaided, showing off their gorgeous baby rolls and all their squidgy-ness! There will be beautiful wooden toys for your baby to play with and I will capture them rolling, crawling, clapping – my documentary style photography tells the story of your baby.

First Birthday session

A wonderful way to mark this special milestone in your baby’s first year!  Your session is basically a really fun playdate!  I will have gorgeous wooden toys, bubbles and balloons. You can bring a favourite outfit or two and I’ll snap away while your birthday baby has a fab time! I’ll capture your baby’s first birthday in such a beautiful way – telling their story – just as they are.

  • Esther took our new born baby pictures when our little daughter was just under 2 weeks old. She came to our house to capture her in her comfortable surroundings. The shoot was relaxing and fun and we went at our own pace rather than feeling rushed!  As a result we have the most beautiful natural shots of our gorgeous girl! We used several of our favourite shots on Thank you cards and have framed the rest. Would definitely recommend and will be using again in the future.”

  • Esther did an amazing job capturing beautiful pictures of my daughter. Esther was great with Isabella  very friendly and fun, Isabella also had lots of fun doing the shoot. I also had a baby shoot with Esther and the pictures were something to treasure. I highly recommend Esther if you are looking for a professional and friendly service

  • I would recommend Esther because not only is great photographer but also very warm and welcoming person. She was great with my son and very patient as my son wasn't too keen on having his photo taken. Her photos are great and really couldn't ask for a better person thank you again Esther your photos are amazing and looking forward to working with you again

  • We are so glad we chose Esther to photograph our new baby.  Our photos are just beautiful.  Esther is a real artist and her experience really shows - she is confident and certainly knows her stuff when it comes to settling and comforting our baby.  And to add to this, she has just gone over and beyond for us.  We are so so pleased with our precious photographs!
