'Amidst the newborn haze, she captured sweetness, love and most importantly pure, genuine joy!' Felicity
'We had so much fun, she made everyone feel so comfortable and managed to capture some gorgeous moments.' Abigail
'I couldn't believe the shots Kirsty got at the end of it - she made us look serene and relaxed, exactly how you'd hope to look even though it might not be the reality!' Loren
'The photoshoot was beyond my wildest expectations. Kirsty was brilliant with my raucous toddler, with endless patience & so many cute ways to get her engaged with the camera. I am overwhelmed with the photos.' Sue
These are just a few of the lovely things my clients had to say about me last year and the best thing about 2018 is that I am looking forward to photographing each and every one of them again - I'm looking forward to capturing those bumps that have become babies, the babies that are now toddling around and the children who are now that much bigger and that much more grown up.
Maternity and newborn photography
One of the things I have loved the most about the past few months is the excitement of photographing expectant parents and having the privilege of documenting some precious moments when their tiny babies finally make their appearances. There really is something special about seeing the utter love and devotion a parent has for their child (no matter how old they are!) and for me, there is no greater joy than being able to witness this special relationship and capture it on camera. I've loved every moment of my family sessions throughout 2017 and I am excited about what this year has to bring.
Memorable moments with toddlers
Nothing beats a session involving a toddler for sheer energy and fun. They may be tiny but our little people have a huge amount of energy and BIG imaginations. I loved every spin, twirl, running jump and fierce cuddle of 2017 and I'm looking forward to many more this year.
As you can see, choosing just a few highlights of the last year was an impossible task. Not only did I have trouble choosing my favourites, I also got caught up in memories of all the wonderful people I've met and captured on camera. The excited, nervous and always-glowing pregnant mums and dads-to-be; the tiny newborns whose adoring parents just can't stop kissing and cuddling them; those beaming, giggling babies, the full-of-life-toddlers and energetic children, those big from-the-belly laughs and the fierce cuddles along with all the love and joy that the people closest to us can bring. It made me realise just how much I loved photographing all the lovely families I met in 2017 and just how excited I am for the year ahead. 2018 - I'm ready for you!
