My main source of portraiture are families and newborns. I’ll do longer sessions for newborns as it takes a lot of time and patience to perfect each photo while still allowing babies to be babies! Newborns are my favorite type of photoshoot, as there is more of an opportunity to be creative with the baby being asleep and not active yet.

I enjoy photographing families for different reasons, such as being able to capture the beautiful moments and natural bonds shared between one another. It’s something that can be overlooked in day-to-day life, which makes it such a treasure to have captured in a photograph.

Through the pandemic, this has been harder, but I encouraged my followers to try their own home shoots and offered guidance on posing and lighting, I’d then do the editing for them. I thought it was important for families to still capture moments with one another, as, even though they couldn’t go and visit a photographer, this is probably the most time that families will spend with each other without their normal daily lives getting in the way.

During the summer I set up an outdoor studio in my garden so I could photograph families and little ones outside in the open air. This made it much easier to stick to the social distancing guidelines. However, I am in the process of refreshing my indoor studio with new backgrounds, so hopefully, this will allow me to hit the ground running in 2021 as restrictions slowly lift.

Canon Selphy Square QX10: Prints Vivid Smartphone Pics

The Canon Selphy Square QX10 is a departure from the company’s CP1300 Wireless Compact Photo Printer and earlier Selphy models. This photo printer is smaller and lighter than those other Canons, and it’s closer in functionality to the Editors’ Choice HP Sprocket Select or Canon’s own IVY Mini Photo Printer, though it’s still too big to be pocketable.
