Neetha | Birmingham UK Maternity Photography

I am so excited to share one of my maternity sessions with my favorite family in Birmingham. Neetha and I had been discussing for weeks by this time and it was such a delight to see that our ideas about this pregnancy shoot aligned.

One thing Neetha was very clear about from the start was that she wanted a bright sunny day to capture these images. We waited for the perfect day - and you can see in the images just how perfect this day was!

S and A were also in great moods - which set the tone for the whole session! It was such an amazing evening, I am so honored that they chose me to be part of this special time in their journey!

We warmed up with these sweet images - I was checking for light at this time - but this family was just so together from the word go - that I ended up loving these images and just had to share with them.

I had rushed them to catch the amazing evening light. I was worried that we would lose the light as we got slightly delayed in reaching our spot. I was feeling guilty for rushing the family but they were all pumped up! Bless them :) They sat for a little while and these are some snapshots from there.

 Our little boy - but soon to be proud big brother - A, was just brimming with energy! His mum had told me that he LOVES to run and I had to capture some of his running energy in the lush green fields of this location! His mum wasn't kidding - he just didn't tire from all the running! It felt so free to see him running boundlessly and exploring this open space!

Even though A was in his energetic mode, I managed to capture some quiet moments between Mum and son

Why should we leave Dad behind? :) Captured some sweet moments between Father and son as well.

In the hurry of everyday lives, we forget the journey the couple is going through together. In this pregnancy session, I really wanted to capture the fun times this couple were sharing.

Neetha and Srinidhi were in the perfect mood and I was so glad to capture these priceless moments for them! Here's soaking up some fun and anticipation that they so clearly felt on this day!

And I love A in the background in these pictures! Thats just so true of a family and specially of a couple with kids. The couples have to almost steal their quiet moments from their time with kids - but the child is always in the background - either in reality or in their minds :)

If you are with me this far - thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you enjoyed going through the pictures as much as we enjoyed that day!

Gould Family | Priory School, Edgbaston, Birmingham

Hi Everybody! Hope you are enjoying the summer sunshine!

Priory School had their Summer Fayre a few weeks ago. I offered 10 minute mini sessions at the fayre to raise funds for Friends of Priory. Today, I am sharing a beautiful shoot from one of those sessions.

I had the opportunity to photograph Heather's beautiful family in the gorgeous Priory School grounds. Even though the session was only for 10 minutes, I just couldn't stop clicking! The pictures themselves will give you an idea of the fun we had. Our lil man was a little tired but he was such a trooper during the shoot! He smiled everytime he said bye to me! haha :) We did end up saying bye a few extra times - just to get his priceless expressions :) Below is just a glimpse..

Priyanka Family | Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham Family Photography

I had the opportunity to capture this amazing mum and her beautiful kids. They chose Cannon Hill Park for their shoot. It was a beautiful day and the sun was out in its full glory - which meant the park was full of people.

Even then, we managed to find this private cove and these guys totally made it their own! We spent an amazing hour or more there - they were just being themselves and I was happy capturing them and their natural selves! Below is a snapshot of that beautiful hour. 

Letter to my son | Our days around Birmingham Parks and Playgrounds

In the gorgeous spring weather, our walks to the playgrounds have become quite regular. Doesn't matter near or far, you and I want to sample them all! :) I really like these moments between us. They are special. I break out of the disciplining mum, the serious mum, the homework mum, the no ice cream mum, the non holiday mum - that I feel I've become in our daily lives. These times of ours in the playground, they just let me break out of all these shackles and let me see you from afar - enjoying yourself, enjoying your childhood. Me at a distance, just observing you being a child, letting you be. I just love watching you. These times of ours - they remind me that things are so fleeting and you are growing up so fast that it scares me sometimes. But what gives me peace is that I have these pictures of you to hold on to and remember you like this - always. That I have you to hold on to even tighter - no matter how 'grown up' you become each day! Love you, Mum. xoxo.

Ann and I became friends in a flash. It was one of those effortless friendships that are just meant to be. 

I was super excited to shoot her family in a location that meant so much to them. Ann and I had discussed what the kids will wear and they looked amazing. They were super energetic when they joined me in her garden and I couldn't wait to capture some of that boundless energy!

With every share I try and choose one of my favourite images from the gallery. Its impossible to choose one favourite image as it will be like choosing a favorite child! But with each share I try to choose that one image that speaks to me most. 

The image below spoke to me. Ale climbing up his father like this is just priceless to me. He won't be able to do that for long. The kids will grow up, the parents will forget some of these things probably. But when they come back to this one picture - it will bring back the craziness and the headiness of these days.

Sharing a sliver from the day.

Picnic at Clent Hills | Birmingham Family Photography

I had been researching Blue Bells for some time and really wanted to see them. Clent Hills popped up in my research and we hadn't been there. So we packed a good picnic basket and set off with our badminton, frisbee and the likes, to spend a good afternoon there. (We never could use them because of the winds, but we were very well prepared if the winds let up! :))

Well, the pictures on the internet did not prepare us for the beauty and the serenity of this place. The weather was gorgeous which just added to the beauty. We spent a nice sunday afternoon there - so quiet and laid back - two adjectives we hadn't used for our days in a long time!

With every share I try and choose one of my favourite images from the gallery. Its impossible to choose one favourite image as it will be like choosing a favorite child! But with each share I try to choose that one image that speaks to me most. 

It was the image below for today as this expression that he has on his face, thats reserved only for his Dad. The love, pure admiration, trust, fun...everything is just oozing out of this one that it makes mum's heart sing. 

 

Here are some more from the day.

CONCHA FAMILY | BIRMINGHAM LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER

I had the absolute pleasure of capturing one of my favorite families from our time in Mexico. Jana set up her family shoot with me and I couldn't have been more excited! 

This shoot was done first thing in the morning and the kids were rearing to go :) 

With every session I try and choose one of my favourite images from the gallery. Its impossible to choose one favorite image as it will be like choosing a favourite child! But with each share I try to choose that one image that speaks to me most. 

For this session it was the image below. As a mum, thats what I would want to remember when I look back on our days - the joy reflected in this picture. The unbound energy of laughter and love. And the three of them holding hands - just makes me swoon!
