Outdoor bump & baby photos in Market Harborough

October 2, 2018

I had the pleasure of photographing Ian and Laura’s wedding a few years ago and more recently, I had the honour of taking some maternity, new born and family photos for the arrival of their second child, Freya. There isn’t much repeat business with wedding photography (!) so it’s the greatest compliment to be asked to capture more memories through portrait sessions.

It was so nice to catch up with Ian and Laura, to hear all their news, to meet their son Franklin (so cute!) and spend some time with them as they welcomed Freya into their lives. Franklin wasn’t quite so sure about a photo shoot being a good idea but once he saw the farm with tractors and lorries it was a different matter! We even managed a few smiles for the camera – although they may have been more for the lion sitting on top of my camera pressing the shutter than for me. Never mind ;)

And if he wasn’t sure about the benefits of a photo session he was even less sure about new little sister! Biscuits, aeroplanes and sticks to the rescue! It’s essential to have young children’s favourite toys to hand for photo sessions – they’re great to both distract and entertain! And injecting plenty of playful moments is a great way to bring some personality and feeling into your photos.


And then Freya joins the gang …

Are you expecting a new addition to your family soon? Why not book a bump and baby session to remember this special time by?
