Newborn Baby Mila

Written by angela penn on October 24th, 2017.      0 comments


This gorgeous wee poppet is part of my Baby Grow Programme and had her first session a couple of weeks ago. I'm so looking forward to seeing her growing and getting to know her lovely family a bit better! I've already had Mila's two cousins through for their Baby Grow sessions so we're certainly keeping it in the family!

I've said this in my previous blog post, but I love wrapping up a baby then letting them stretch and wake up naturally as they unwrap themselves. I find it so much more natural looking than all the posed, wrapped shots. Love them.

Baby Jett

Written by angela penn on October 20th, 2017.      0 comments


What a cutie-pie! Jett arrived with his mum and dad, dog Hendrix, grandma and great auntie! It was a packed studio but wee Jett was a superstar and slept most of the time and we got some absolutely awesome shots.  I don't know about you, but I love the more natural shots, where mum and dad can't stop smiling at each other, and the wonder of what they've just created is so evident on their faces. I also love the more natural baby shots too - I don't like anything too contrived and posed - I prefer to wrap baby up, take a few shots then unwrap him and capture all those beautiful stretches and yawns as they unfold. x

Everyone loves a baby but especially a lovely smiley baby!

Kelly & Andrew's boys

I have been shooting this beautiful family since Hadley was a baby and although these guys live a long way away from my studio in Mt Pleasant, they have been so loyal and lovely that they travel all the way to see me for photos every time they have a baby.  I am so grateful and this is why I love my job so much - my clients are SO lovely.

Baby Vance

Written by angela penn on September 3rd, 2016.      0 comments


This is baby Vance. He is 5th in a line of Vances.  His dad is Vance (or Dad, to baby Vance) and his grandad is old Vance.  Cute huh?  Baby Vance is an adorable wee thing to shoot and I was very excited when he came to see me that he had such a lot of thick, gorgeous hair!  He also makes the most gorgeous wee facials too and I could have photographed him all day.

Leanne and her boys

Written by Angela Penn on August 31st, 2016.      0 comments


This would have to be one of the best behaved pack of boys I've ever met. I say pack because boys are noisy, smelly and they eat without using utensils, directly off the ground.  Oh, sorry, that was my kid. These boys are amazing and so well behaved - just a pleasure to photograph!  The big boys, Jackson and Maddox absolutely adore their wee brother Boston and it's pretty obvious he adores them right back.

Like most mums we hate having our photos taken but Leanne was a good sport and let me have 30 seconds to shoot her (see the last photo on this blog).  And that's all we needed and now they have a beautiful portrait that the family will enjoy for a lifetime. Something that Leanne's great grandchildren will be able to look back on (and laugh at the funny hairstyles).

This is Luke at 16 days old.  Isn't he just gorgeous?!

I also love getting the chance to use my beautiful curly wool photo props from Jane at Flovelies (last two images).

I met Claire & Willy at their friend's wedding earlier this year and I instantly like them.  Bring wee Fred into the mix and they make the perfect wee family! I LOVED shooting these guys. x

Look at this wee face!!!
