Jacob Goodall - An extra special blog post dedicated to a special little man. Please read this story to the end. Jacob is a little fighter and this story shows the raw, powerful love of one incredible family. We are so lucky to have had the privilege of documenting their pregnancy and Jacob's first 2 weeks... Kate & Andy's Maternity Session | Week 38 "I don't want any of those floaty, girly shots" said Kate as she breezed into the studio for her maternity shoot with Fiancee
"This is my little brother Boston" beamed Harlow, 3, proudly peppering baby Boston's head with kisses as I lightly wrapped him for their photos together "I'm his sister... I love him" Mum Abbie wanted a clean, minimalistic gallery to go with their modern home décor and little Harlow & Boston posed beautifully throughout their session. There is just something timeless and classic about a gallery like this - simply stunning.
So, welcome to the world little Boston! You are so
"I'd really like to try, if we can, for a shot of George wearing the little tweed flat cap. My Dad used to wear one just like it. George's middle name is Terrance after my Dad, I'd really love it if we could just get one shot of him wearing it..."
As I placed the little flat cap on George's head he snuffled the most content little sigh and smiled happily. Handsome chilled out 22 day old George surprised everybody when he arrived 4 weeks before his due date - which wasn't un
Someone is a big sister! Congratulations Macy on the arrival of your new partner in crime, Ralph. Macy arrived straight after Mummy Tara's 12 week scan to create a photograph to share the baby news... And then when little brother Ralph came into this world (so quickly I might add!) she recreated the shot again to make her proud announcement - just look at her face! Ralph was a gorgeous little bundle of pure boyishness at his newborn session. Stunning Tara, Craig and Macy als
"Oh look at her little faces!" smiled Beatrix's mummy Ruth as she held her tiny daughter in her hands.
The images in this beautiful trio-shot were captured as Beatrix nestled in a soft black blanket in mummy's hands. She felt so safe, so warm and was clearly having a beautiful dream! Pretty little soul Beatrix was truly a delight at her newborn session Beautiful Mummy Ruth also came for her keep-sake Bump Session before Beatrix was born. Such a wonderful memento to have, k
"Now George whatever you dooooo don't smiiile"
"Doooooon't you smile George!"
Ok, I can't take credit for baby Arthur's smile - that's all his own doing
Gorgeous Arthur has to be the squishiest little baby we've had in - he curled his legs so beautifully in every pose, like he was still in the womb. This is just one of the many many things we treasure as newborn photographers! Stunning Liza also came in for her keepsake Maternity shoot too. A
" I love my baby brother Frankie... I love him. I just LOVE him so much because he's mine"
20 day old Frankie and big sister Amelia were both just so good at their session. Frankie loved being posed in natural, comfortable positions. What a pair of happy little souls. Mummy Kirsty went for a gorgeous big canvas of the 2 of them together and I don't blame her - what a treasure to have on the walls for years to come!

Meet little miss Eliza. 3 weeks old and the biggest personality!
Mummy & Daddy wanted to go for a clean, fine art feel to her images. Calming, neutral and serene. Eliza was so interested in the world around her at her Newborn Session she was an absolute joy to photograph! With 2 big brothers to keep her safe, what's not to smile about :-) Eliza's beautiful Mum, Mei, visited for her Bump Photography Session just before Eliza was born. Seriously stunning and, like her little
"How much do you love your little sister Nellie?"
"THIIIIIIIIIIS MUCH!!!!!" Laughed Nellie (4) stretching her hands as wide as they'd go.
A first birthday cake smash is just the most wonderful, messy and fun way to mark this important milestone. Nellie and Agnes had so much fun posing and smashing the gorgeous cake up together. You can just see the love they have for each other in these shots. 2 delightful, fun little girls!
The cake is, as ever, custom designed for th
Matthew made us laugh - he was your classic 'toddler with a new baby' at his new sister Poppy's newborn session. Basically, pretending she wasn't there and totally ignoring anyone who asked him about the new baby... well, aside from the occasional point like "yeah, she's there! Big deal!"
But for a few fleeting moments, when he thought nobody else was looking, he gazed at her, had cocked to one side, and looked oh so proud and excited.
It's so precious, capturing these m
""So Teddy. She's going to hold the camera like this, go CLICK and you smile, right got it? Good - let's pose!"
Little Miss Emilia was absolutely perfect at her Newborn Session. We ADORE 3 weekers as they're still curly and sleepy as they were in the womb, but also their little personality SHINES when they're awake! Emilia was all chubby baby rolls and soft dark hair - absolutely yummy <3 Find out more about our Newborn Photography Sessions in Portsmouth [here] #newborn #se
"Sleep?! No, that's boring I'm having far too much fun!!"
Ok I'll admit - normally we wrap newborns to lull them into a deep and comfortable sleep at their session as it imitates the position they would have been in in the womb.
Ladies and gentlemen - meet Annabelle! Annabelle had a blast at her newborn session with us and we smiled the entire way through. Wise beyond her mere 27 days, she was far too interested in what was going on around her! She did sleep though, but o
Beautiful, spirited Willow Rose had her first photo session with us when she was still in Mummy Ashley's tummy! Then again as a newborn... remember our gorgeous little baby in the tea cup with that lovely head of hair? Yep that's Willow! Willow is a spirited, cheeky little soul with stunning hair and piercing blue eyes. Her expressions were priceless and you literally can't help but fall in love with her. We can't wait to see Miss Willow Rose again for her first Birthday Cake
We can't get enough of little Miss Daisy Evelyn Turner - seriously, look at her! Daisy was our famous award winning "Baby in the Balloon" model and she's still at it with these gorgeous shots!
James had to laugh when Daisy's Dad brought along his XBox controller and headset for the session! We just love it when parents bring along something that is original and marks the time perfectly for future reflection! Daisy settled right into her "gaming chair" like a pro.
Gorgeous Talia is such a smiler! We first met Mummy & Daddy Laura & Gavin at their Maternity session, which Gavin booked as a surprise Christmas present for Laura (what a wonderful gift!). Such a lovely, relaxed couple who really put me at ease photographing their pregnancy.
They returned just a few weeks later with their precious daughter Talia (my gosh, that NAME! Love it and it suits her so well). Talia didn't think too highly of sleeping at her newborn session and was
