Everyone knows that in order to produce stunning images of your bundles of joy, you must have a wonderful workspace. I have spent a great deal of time over many years to create a wonderful cosy, relaxing studio to welcome your little bundles filled with beautiful props and outfits for you to use. The other side of my job which everyone doesn’t see is my office workspace where I spend hours editing your beautiful images. Well after a lot of nagging, I finally managed to convince hubby to let me renovate the dining room, where I also have my computer desk and have created a lush little space for me to while away the hours in. I’m so pleased with the way it turned out that I thought I would share it with you all!

The crisp, clean white, mixed with the calming grey colour scheme is such a tranquil setting to work from and with my little plant friends it’s very chic! Who else loves an aloe plant and succulents, they are my absolute favourite at the moment!

This new editing space is just divine, I am so in love and will feel so much more relaxed editing all of your pictures here! I mean I have a lot to edit so I literally shall be eating, breathing and sleeping in this space!

We all think of newborns as having such perfect baby soft skin but as I photograph your beautiful bundles at such a young age, their little bodies are getting used to the air here in the big bad world. Their skin takes time to balance and after soaking in water for 9 months, they tend to shed a layer and can be very blotchy. I don’t simply add a filter to my images as I want to keep the natural image I have taken and so i very carefully zoom into each image and individually take away any little red marks, blotches, scratches, flakey skin etc. I also tone down any skin with extreme jaundice and reduce red marks and lines where their nappy has left marks on their skin. I want to create a beautiful, natural image which you can look back on forever and love, knowing that your precious little bundle was sleepy, calm and most importantly comfy and happy in each image you see.

So… there really is a lot more to my sessions than just the part you see in the studio with editing of a newborn session taking me anything from 1-3 hours to perfect. But still I have the BEST job in the world!
