maternity & newborn
"time flies, the years go by and life takes its own turns, but the memories...forever remain"
The first year of a baby's life goes so very fast and they literally transform in front of your eyes...those tiny fingers, baggy knees and gorgeous gummy first smiles. It is so important to capture this time as once it's gone, it's gone…and you simply won't remember how adorable and tiny they once were. Even less will you remember what it felt like to be pregnant and feel your baby kicking.
Let me record the anticipation and excitement of your new arrival and the tender moments of those early days as a new family, focussing on the bond and emotion between you, your baby and any older siblings. I offer maternity and newborn sessions either at your home or at my home studio. More details are available below.
Gemma has a gift for making people feel relaxed and at ease. I was nervous about getting my bump out for the camera but I'm so glad I did, the images are a priceless reminder of my pregnancy - now the baby is here I can hardly remember how it felt. As for the newborn images, well, I cry every time I look at them! I can't even fathom how he was ever that tiny. A million thank yous.

Many of my clients choose their favourite images to hang on the walls on their home in either contemporary or traditional style frames. I work closely with one of the industry's leading frame makers to design and make handmade wall art that will perfectly complement the decor of your home. I have many sample frames in my studio to show you and can mockup layouts in different styles to help you choose, both single and multi-aperture (storyboard) frames. Frames start from £150.
Other clients prefer to have their images put together into a beautiful handmade album which can be handed down to future generations, creating a collection of albums that you can add to as your family grows. I create a bespoke design for your images to tell the story of your shoot and only use album makers that share the same meticulous attention to detail, creating a timeless album that will have have pride of place on your coffee table. Albums start from £400.
Other popular display choices include my print folio box, perfect for displaying smaller mounted images on the included easel or on mantelpieces or desktops. You can safely store the images not on display in the beautiful linen-bound keepsake box. Folio boxes start from £550.
Naturally digital images are always popular and I offer digital files suitable for printing, with packages starting from £350.

You captured the essence of our little girl - at 6 months she is already such a character and looking back at the photos we can't believe how much she's already changed. We're so glad we came to you and look forward to seeing you soon for her first birthday shoot.
