Family Photos – The Hammersley Family

Professional Family Photos with The Hammersley’s

We recently welcomed the Hammersley family to the studio to update their family photos. There was Mum and dad, along with their beautiful 9 year old daughter and 9 month old cheeky chappy.

We kick started the shoot with some shots of the 4 of them together to get them relaxed. We then broke the group down into different combinations. Shots included father and son, mother and daughter, sister and brother, and of course not forgetting mum and dad. Once you have kids, you often forget that you are still a couple, therefore we are always keen to get couples shots.

Here are a few of our favourites from the shoot. To book your family photo shoot, either call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Baby Photography

Baby Photography at 3 Months

Our aim is to fill our studio with giggles and smiles. Our baby photography sessions are relaxed and fun. Capturing your little one’s growth through professional photography not only gives you beautiful photos to cherish forever, but the experience is also a time to be remembered.

We all know the difference a couple of months makes in a baby’s first year is immense. From newborn to 3 months, the difference is huge. We love photographing babies of all ages, but there is something really exciting and special about photographing at 3 months old. They enjoy time on their tummy which is a great pose. Also, the smiles and giggles are infectious. You cannot help but light up when you have a little one giggling away, especially when you have got your camera to hand to capture their little face – priceless.

This little man we had in the studio last week was an absolute joy. He was full of smiles and some of his expressions were a picture (literally). His gorgeous blue eyes are amazing! This was such a lovely shoot and we are so pleased with the results. Below are a sample of images from the shoot.

Newborn Portraits

Family and Newborn Portraits

We love seeing customers return, especially when they have a new addition in their family. We had the pleasure of taking Newborn Portraits for a lovely couple who we did their wedding photography in 2014.

Sarah and Neil were married 29 March 2014 at The Belfry, near Sutton Coldfield. It was a lovely day, and still clearly remember having a bet with Sarah. If I lost, I owed her a canvas – I lost! She never did claim her winnings, until now that it is. She contacted us to book a photoshoot for their first little bundle of joy, saying that they would not go anywhere else for these special portraits. I felt humbled and honoured. The lovely family of 3 came to the studio when the little man was 3 weeks old, which is a great time for newborn portraits. The studio was warm and cosy, and he was a little star and got some lovely shots. Once we got the newborn shots, we moved on to the family shots.

Such a precious moment capturing a new family, especially when I also captured their big day. This is what makes being a photographer all the more worth it, getting to know families and seeing them grow. Thank you to Neil and Sarah for allowing me to capture your most precious moments. Here are some the images.
