First birthday photoshoot

I joined this sweet family on the eve of their baby’s first birthday…Adorable doesn’t even begin to describe this girl!  They had been given a gift voucher as a present and I was so pleased to meet them on this visit to Sheffield.  Hope the birthday celebrations were as special as the birthday girl herself 🙂 Here are a few of my favourite shots from our little get together.

First up, playtime with balloons – there is simply nothing better when you’re 364 days old!




The weather was kind to us so we took a little stroll… And got some cute pictures of her longest walk!

Then back to base for Sunday dinner and cuddles with special people.  And, no doubt, more balloons!

Late summer in Sheffield Botanical Gardens

Rewind to September, take back those autumn leaves, lets have some late-summer colour!

This gorgeous family wanted some photographs to mark their littlest girl’s first birthday.  The Botanical Gardens couldn’t have been a better choice; it was quiet on a Saturday morning, and there was more than enough space for us to explore and scoot around!  The relationship between the three siblings was beautiful to behold, and we had such a lovely relaxed and fun time together.  And isn’t baby an absolute poppet!?! Here are a few of my highlights, with love.

Autumn fun in Clumber Park

Take some out-of-this-world autumn colours at Clumber Park, lovely sisters and cousins reunited from the other side of the world, and a generous helping of muddy mayhem…

And get this.

I love these photos so much.  What a wonderful relaxed family shoot we had, precious moments and precious memories.

I love the children’s fascination with things we adults might not even have noticed.


Those curls and autumnal colours.  A gift to this photographer!

I see a real resemblance in these boys.  This visit has been their first opportunity to meet 🙂

Clumber Park really put on a show for us… You’ll never get this in a studio.

Autumn is almost finished and I’m just glad to have seen so much of it this year.

New baby at home

It’s always an incredibly special time when a new baby is at home.   I was so thrilled to be able to join this gorgeous family at home with their baby only two weeks old.  Isn’t he beautiful – and his big brother too 🙂  Such a contented little soul, this clever baby had brought his big brother lots of new toys to play with, so we had loads of fun along the way…

Here are a few of my favourite shots from our morning together.
