“Newborn photographer near me” - what makes me different?
A simple “newborn photographer, Bristol” search will return hundreds of hits. Literally. So what is it about me that inspires my clients to choose me and recommend me? How am I different and more importantly what about me might make me the right choice for you?
I’m not sure that there is any one thing so I’m certainly not going to be all “ooh, look at me, I’ve got an award (but actually, I do – ooh, actually….. go me…. 😉!!) but I do have a blend of attributes that is kind of the perfect mix for a family photographer, or so I’ve been told anyway!
This has numerous meanings, so firstly, I take my business very seriously, I am fully trained, insured and belong to the relevant (voluntary) bodies that help raise standard within the (unfortunately unregulated) newborn photography industry. I’m also passionate about offering the best possible service I can, so I have robust systems and ensure that working with me is easy and simple.
Relaxing home studio
I have a warm and relaxing home studio with easy off road parking, so there is no stress about parking meters or having to clean and tidy your house for an in-home session. It’s easy and worry free. You have a home from home here and I love that my clients relax and sometimes even have a nap whilst I’m working with their baby! I take it as the highest compliment that someone is relaxed enough in my studio whilst I’m working with their precious new baby to catch up on some much needed sleep.
I am completely baby-led
I’m not watching the clock or sticking to a timetable. If your baby wants to cluster feed or be cuddled before being posed, or even during the session, that’s fine, we don’t rush. My priority is that you all feel safe, relaxed and comfortable. You wouldn’t feel that with a crying newborn and me rushing to get the next shot (trust me, this happened to me when mine was tiny and it was awful) so I wouldn’t do that to you.
Your experience matters as much as your images
I am an emotional kind of mummy and I treasure motherhood, I also realise how fragile life is and that none of us know what is around the corner. That makes me passionate about helping my clients take home fabulous products that will stand the test of time and allow their children to reflect back on their earlier lives as they grow, maybe even with their own children, grandchildren or great grandchildren!
Technology will change, we don’t know what our children will be using when they reach our age, but we do know the power of a printed photograph and how we all treasure our old family photographs and albums, so I print your treasured images on products that will stand the test of time - apart from one they’re all archival quality (rated to last 100+ years).
I see what I do as a massive privilege
This last reason is super cheesy but it’s true. I LOVE what I do. I consider it the greatest privilege to work with you, capturing your families future memories and turning them into products that you will enjoy (genuinely) forever. Your children may one day hang your favourite family portrait in their own home. Preserving your future memories to allow them to withstand the test of time is my gift to you.
