Maternity photography in Whitstable

Pregnancy is a special time in your life – one that you should cherish and remember forever. As a mum myself, though, I know how hard it can be to take some time out for yourself, relax, unwind, and enjoy the moment. A maternity photoshoot is the perfect opportunity to do just this, having some ‘me’ time and making memories with your baby before birth.

I know Whitstable very well so if you’d like location recommendations, let me know. There are many beautiful, natural settings for a shoot, or we can hold it at home – whatever makes you happy and comfortable.

Newborn and baby photography in Whitstable

I love meeting new babies, mums and dads – it’s one of the greatest privileges of my job. Make sure you have memories to keep forever, with a newborn baby photoshoot. Time flies by when you have a newborn so let me help you remember those special early moments and preserve them on camera.

I also offer shoots with older babies and toddlers. Some parents choose to have multiple shoots as their little ones grow; whatever you’d like, I have a photography package for you.

Family photography in Whitstable

I love working with families, meeting different people and creating lasting memories. I started my career as a family photographer, when people saw photos I’d taken of my own children and asked me to do the same for them. Family photoshoots are particular favourites of mine.

I design all family shoots to be engaging for everyone, bringing out personalities and capturing your group dynamic. Whether you want a fun photoshoot with your whole extended family or a small session with your nearest and dearest, I’d love to be your photographer.
