Elsie

With the permission of Kelly & Lyndsay we get to share this amazing story with you all. We were introduced to Kelly through her sister Lyndsay who brought her beautiful little boys Oliver & Sam for us to photograph. During the session Lyndsay told us she was a surrogate for her sister and she was sure Kelly would love to book one of our newborn shoots.

I am sure a lot of you have seen our Facebook post advertising a free photo shoot. This was for us to practice a few poses that are a little more difficult to master. Our ultimate goal is to be the best newborn photographers in the Lake District, Cumbria, and to do this we need to practice, practice practice! A free photo shoot allows us to focus on getting those poses right without worrying about getting a full gallery for mam and dad.

6 months and pretty perfect

Newborn photo shoots are lovely, we truly adore having little cuddles, dressing the little bundles up and making beautiful photos for parents to adore forever, who wouldn't love that! Yeh, seriously this is our job, please don't hate us. In 6 short months you wouldn't believe the difference it makes in your little one's life, they have developed a character, attitude, likes and dislikes and we love nothing better than capturing that for you.

The Poo Catcher

When Georgie arrived in our studio, we hit it off immediately, he was so gorgeous and so content with the best 'hair do' ever and we loved every minute of his shoot. When the little man arrived for his baby photos he needed a little feed and we were more than happy to oblige, whilst chatting away, I think we could have sat there talking all day.

Life As We Know It

When our clients come to us for a maternity session we are thrilled. We get to capture one of the most special times of their lives. A new beginning. We had the pleasure of photographing Nina & Ryan and their bump. They were still Nina & Ryan, not Mammy or Daddy, they were yet to find out who this little child would be who would change their lives forever! Then along came Chiara. The most precious little beauty with lots of dark hair & big brown eyes. Absolutely perfect.

As we know his mammy we asked if we could try something a little different and we were so pleased when she agreed.
