Baby Rory

I would like to introduce you all to this very handsome little chap, who goes by the ever so cute name….Rory! I mean how cute! He came into my brand new studio with his family for his first ever photoshoot, although it really didn’t seem like his first. He was such a pro! After a feed and mummy snuggles he was handed over to me and we got on with it. He was such a little angel and it was such a please to work with him. He was very easy to pose and I loved that he kept smiling at me, now I know theres a debate about wether babies can actually smile or wether its just wind but I honestly think that this little fella just liked me! Well, he didn’t like me that much because every time I picked the camera back up the smile went…Cheeky or what!

This was the first studio shoot I had done since arriving and it seemed a little strange working in a totally different area. I love it though because it is much bigger than my old studio! I love my job so much and I was honoured that Rory’s mummy emailed me just days after my first ever advertisement and then chose me to photograph her baby boy. He pretty much slept throughout and even though we tried at the end they was no way we were going to get a shot of him with his eyes open. He was completely settled and there was no way I was waking him up. you know what they say, never wake a sleeping baby! It was such a shame too as I caught a glimpse of his gorgeous little eyes when he came in and wow, just stunning!

Anyway, as usual I could talk for hours…..but I won’t! :)

Here are my favourite images from the shoot.

The Birth Of Baby Edward

by

The birth of baby Edward.

It was 10.35pm and I was on my sofa watching television with my husband, both my daughters were fast asleep in their beds and I thought I was in for a nice peaceful night on the sofa with the hubby. That soon changed when I received a text message which read “Hey Katie. Things are happening at Jades.”   My first ever birth client had gone into labour and I was a little excited.

At the time of the text Jade was 4cm dilated so I had plenty of time to get myself sorted and make the journey to her house which was around 30 minutes away. I packed my bag, packed a change of clothes and everything else that I required to keep me going for at least 24 hours. As a mum myself I know that labour can take a very long time and I wanted to be prepared.
I jumped into the car and drove to the home where Jade was giving birth.I was met at the door by one of the midwives, who showed me where to go. Once in the room I realised that this was moving along much faster than we had originally thought. Jade was in the birthing pool having a contraction, her partner was sat in front of her holding her close and supporting her as she breathed through the pain. It was very clear from the moment I walked in that the support Jade had was amazing.

It wasn’t long until the midwife decided to do an examination and told Jade that she was between 7 and 8 cm dilated. We figured it would be a few more hours until the birth but little Edward had different ideas. Just a little longer than 10 minutes later and his head had been born. Unfortunately the mood soon changed as the midwife felt that the cord was around Edward’s neck. They pulled Jade out of the pool an onto sofa and just moments later he was born, safe and healthy.

He was beautiful! Both mummy and Edward were brilliant and I was so proud of Jade. It is weird to be proud of someone you have only met 3 times but my goodness I was proud of her.

Even though this was the first time I had ever photographed a birth, I felt completely at ease and comfortable. Everyone in the room made sure I got the shots I needed and didn’t make me feel like I was in the way at all. I expected to feel the  complete opposite but I was totally welcome and I am very pleased with the outcome.

Obviously these images are not for everyone and I do not expect everyone to like them so please do not leave any negative comments.

Here is the story of Edward’s birth in pictures, Enjoy x   Birth of Baby Edward (more…)

Newborn Baby Elliott

by

Before baby Elliott was born I did a maternity “bump” photoshoot for the very beautiful Joanne. Joanne was only days away from her due date. A few days later I received an email to say baby Elliott had joined the world and was doing very well.

Joanne’s maternity sneak peek can be found at http://www.facebook.com/KatieGarchaPhotography.

I do love hearing from my pregnant mums once they have given birth. I believe that every newborn baby is a teeny tiny miracle.
Baby Elliott came in for his newborn session at only 6 days old, here are my favourites from the session.

Rebecca’s Maternity Photo Shoot

by

The gorgeous Rebecca came into the studio for some maternity pictures before she went off to give birth to her second little boy. I love my maternity photo shoots. The excitement of the last few weeks before baby arrives. Plus I always get to meet the baby for their newborn photoshoot just a few weeks later. It’s such an honour being part of such an important part of someones life. I love so many of the pictures from this shoot so it has taken a long while BUT here are my favourites.

Cake Smash by Katie

by

So as you all know, Cake smash photoshoots have become VERY popular. I love them. I love everything about them, especially the cakes! The cakes that I use are made by the lovely and oh so talented, Emma at L&E Cakecraft. Here is her link, https://www.facebook.com/LECakecraft?fref=ts
The cakes she makes are personal to your child. You can choose the colour of icing, sometimes even two colours! If you require dairy free or gluten free, it’s no problem at all. This post is all about the cakes. The colours, the mess and the love the babies have for cake smash. These are my absolute favourite images from some of the Cake smash shoots I have done. I hope you enjoy them. foremma2 (more…)
