Baby Portrait Photography – is it luck or skill?

Baby portrait photography

I love the challenge that photographing babies presents. There are some important considerations such as the time of day, too late and baby is likely to be tired. Temperature, you need a comfortable working temperature to keep baby smiling. Feeding time, if its getting close to feeding time baby might be grumpy. The challenges also vary at the different stages of development. Once they reach the talking stage it gets easy as they quickly relate to my inner child. 🙂

In the studio I love the clean simple white background. There are no distractions its all about the subject. Once baby has settled I think the most important thing is to keep your eye glued to the viewfinder because sod’s law will ensure that if you put that camera down, shot of the session will come and go before you can say Frozen!!!!

There is still time to book a portrait session before Christmas for baby or the whole family. Call Mark on 07968533809 – don’t leave it too long!

A cheeky smile









Isobel was a darling and once comfortable in front of the camera gave me a great selection of expressions my favourite being the cheeky smile. The most satisfying thing with baby, children and kids photography is the little tear in the corner of mum’s eye when she views the final images. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you have moved somebody with your images.

Conclusion – luck or skill?

So luck or skill? I like to think my childish nature is a real help but as the old saying goes, the more I practise the luckier I get. I’ll take that.

I recently did an Underwater Shoot with Emily. She was dressed as a Fairy and was the most fantastic model. As you can see below.

I have been photographing below the waves for many years. I am now going to bring those years of experience to the pool. The pool enviroment is a little different to the open ocean and adds its own set of problems. With a good deal of practice I have now arrived at a lighting set up that I am happy will produce top quality images.
I am aiming to produce a set of unique and stunning images that will be a talking point for many years to come. It can be just one child, you and your child or the whole family.

Have a look at the Underwater Kids Photography page on the website.

Underwater Kids Photography in Northampton

I have a great venue that is available for underwater shoots in Northampton. It’s great fun with the kids really enjoying the session. We have costumes for dressing up if that is of interest. You are welcome to bring your own costume along but we will have to inspect it to make certain it is safe to use in the water. Safety is very high up on the agenda. Safety divers are present in the water at all times to ensure a safe shoot.
Please get in touch to book an underwater shoot. Ring me on 07968533809 it would be great to hear from you.

Underwater Model Shoot in The Pipeline

I am currently planning an underwater shoot with a couple of dancers. Hopefully this will take place in April. Keep your eyes peeled for the images they should be rather special. Lots of bright, flowing colour and movement.
