BEFORE THE SESSION
My passion is creating a lovely gallery of images that you can choose from. I never schedule more than one session per day so that I’m able to work at your baby’s pace. You’re welcome to feed, change and hold your baby as much as you both need. I’m a mum myself, and I know how hard it is to get up and out on those earlier days, so that’s why I come to you, home session is a mix of lifestyle and posed images... Pop your feet up and relax with a cup of tea while I capture your baby’s first moments.
Or if you are like me and dread the thought of anyone coming to your home when you are welcome to come to my beautiful studio for a more posed and styled photography session, where you can take advantage of all the lovely props I have to use in your session and not to mention the amazing rustic wooden floors!
If your kiddies are a little older let's head outside on an adventure! Or come to the studio for a more styled session where we can create a fabulous theme for your milestone/cake smash.
The choice is yours.
AFTER THE SESSION
This where the magic happens, I will go away and edit your beautiful portraits into a fabulous collection. So basically, when I say editing what I mean is I will choose the best images to go in the final selection, trust me you won’t want to sit and view 100 images of dad blinking. I have many years of experience in choosing these images, and I’ll show you only the best of the best, I promise.
I do a small amount of retouching, i.e. small blemishes, however, babies are born natural, and this will be reflected in the final images, I love the flaky skin of a newborn so I’ll be keeping it.
When your proofs ready to be viewed, I will contact you to arrange a viewing and ordering appointment.
You can then select the images that you would like, and only the photos you want!
Collections can take up to 2-3 weeks to edit, so please be patient while your images are being worked on, I’m adding a lovely Lux signature style to your pictures making them one of a kind.
Online viewing appointments are for 2 hours only. We will book a time that suits you.Collections need to be selected and paid for within these two hours.
From experience clients chose there collections in about an hour, the record time once was 10 minutes!
You will NOT get any pushy salesman act from me. Just buy what you love, and I’ll be there to hold your hand and guide you on what looks great, and help you feel at ease!
“What a wonderful experience. We worried our newborn wouldn’t settle but Ellie was wonderful with him- there was no pressure at any point to hurry things along. She had a fantastic way with him and with us, and the studio is just perfect …"

Here you can see a behind the scene edit of an image. I edit around 25-30 images for your gallery.
Every photographer’s editing style is different, I would recommend you have had you a good look at the gallery to get a feel of what kind of images to expect from your session
Here's a little behind the scene video of a Little baby session. It was so much fun. Six months is a great time to get your baby photographed as they are of such lovely expressions and full of personality
