I am today sharing a little note from a couple that are very close to us, they do wish to remain annonymous as they are private people. Please respect that in your comments.

We wanted to raise awareness on the sad side when pregnancy doesn’t quite go how as planned when you see two lines on the test. 
We debated posting this on social media however felt it was still a bit too personal and private to broadcast to EVERYONE. 
Nonetheless we still want to raise awareness and bridge a gap between this silent grief so many have to endure. I didn’t want to share on social media, however I am happy for you to share my email with whoever you feel would either seek some form of comfort from it, or to raise awareness.
Please read the below….

Not one to post much about myself or anything for that matter I really debated whether or not I should even post this at all. But truth is I know that I am not alone in my grief and many women and men have been/are going through this heartache too. 

Today would have been the day our baby was due to come into this world. March the 19th was meant to be the happiest day of our lives, but unfortunately it is now filled with grief, sadness and emptiness.

Finding out back in August that our much loved and longed for tiny human no longer had a heartbeat was the most painful experience I have ever had to go through. To be on cloud 9 just hours before, to feeling like someone had just ripped out my heart was such a strange experience and not one I would wish upon anybody.  

Truth of the matter is sadly I know I am not alone. In fact I am one in every 4 women who have to endure the grief of miscarriage – and the reason I am posting is because of this. So many women (and their partners) suffer in silence and I hated that I couldn’t tell people what I was going through. Miscarriage shouldn’t be something couples have to do alone and quietly, it should be something that we can talk openly about and I want to start by sharing my voice.

Whether I will ever get the privilege to become pregnant again I don’t know, but for that too short a time I had, I loved every second being a mum.

See you in heaven little angel, you were too good for this world. We will never stop loving you.

Now in my job I only get to see the happy outcome, but I know so many of my clients have been here – more than you would think. What I want to say is; just because not now, does not mean not ever. There is so much hope and so much support. Please don’t ever sit in silence – I am here for anybody that needs it and my door is always open. Support can also be sought from Tommy’s, one of my favourite charities. https://www.tommys.org/

I want to end this post on a positive with some beautiful rainbow babies that my clients have given the ok to share. Let these little faces shine a light.

Planning for your new arrival is super exciting, and there is such a lot to do! From the nursery, to your hospital bag and much more.

Planning for and booking a photography session for your new baby, whilst choosing to find the Find the best Newborn Photography Sessions near you is a huge decision.

There is so much to consider when weighing up the options that are available to you.

In this blog post I’m going to address some key areas of consideration that will help you make an informed decision.

Choosing the Best Newborn Photography Sessions: Things to Consider

Training: How Much Experience Does Your Photographer have?

This is probably the most important thing to check for – an experienced newborn photographer will be able to handle your baby safely while they photograph them. 

Keeping your baby safe is the most important aspect of a newborn photoshoot, so it’s essential to ensure that the professional you choose has plenty of experience and expertise in handling newborns.

A professional photographer should know how to pose and support your new baby in a way that is safe and comfortable for them. They should also be aware of how to settle and calm them if they become upset at any point.


An established newborn photographer will have plenty of reviews for you to read and check them out.

Opinions matter. And it is worth taking some time to read these and hear what other new parents have to say about your baby photographer. You are going to want to make sure that you like what you see, or I’d recommend moving on pretty swiftly! Take your time and do your research.

You can see reviews from my clients here.


When looking around for your newborn photographer, the first thing you will do (most likely) is check out their images – if you like them, you’ll keep looking. Obvious, right?!

It’s really important to choose a photographer whose style you love. It’s a truly unique experience and it can’t be repeated later.

So are you considering posed newborn photography sessions with props?  Or maybe a lifestyle shoot?
Only you can decide that but having a clear idea of how you want your finished images to look will really help you in deciding which newborn photographer to hire.

Posed newborn photography sessions will likely take place in the photographers studio, so also make sure that you are happy to travel to them for this. Posed sessions have a lot more “stuff” than a lifestyle session. There will be props, as well as a lighting setup to account for. If you specifically want a photographer to come to your home, this needs to be checked very early on, as not all will offer this.

Lifestyle photography sessions are more likely to take place in your home, so you’ll need to be prepared for a good old tidy up to make everything photo worthy on the day of your session. Definitely something to be aware of if you are anything like me!


Ok I saved the big one for last. Probably not the most popular topic here..

When it comes to newborn photography sessions, you really do get what you pay for.

A professional and insured photographer who specialises in newborns is not going to work with you for £50 – and whilst low prices may seem tempting, they are likely too good to be true.

That being said, I understand that everyone has a budget in mind when setting out to buy a product or service.
