My name is Jules – Maternity, newborn and family photographer. I also specialise in baby and hand and foot casting across Milton Keynes.
Welcome to Photography for Little People by Jules
I like to be known as Jules HW as my full surname is still difficult for me to spell 47 years on! I am married with two sons. One who is a fully-grown adult who shares my loves and passion for travel and photography; and the younger one currently taking A levels and making choices about their future.
I have always had a passion for photography and have enjoyed capturing images of my family as they have grown and developed into the young adults they are today. Being able to look at these images on display in my home, I feel immense pride and pleasure in reliving these memories. My passion led me to attending night classes in photography where I learnt the foundations of photography and developing; and how to create stunning photographs; and for me, photos that just make me smile.
I would describe myself as a creative person, who maybe is a little bit quirky! I have always enjoyed creating, whether it be a new dress, jewellery, bags, knitting and even calligraphy.
When I am not taking photographs, travelling or crafting, I enjoy working alongside parents, teenagers and children; for the past five years in a public health role with young pregnant women, their families, toddlers and newborns. I enjoy the hands-on approach of handling newborn babies and watching them grow and develop, whilst helping their parents to grow into their role of being their newborns first teacher. The first smile, giggle and sticking out of their tongue is priceless and a time for celebration.
Photographs are a lasting memory of how your baby changes day by day. When I first saw the photographs and finished framed photos, beautiful hand and foot impressions and canvases that Photography for Little People produce, I knew that I wanted to be part of this and create stunning pieces of art for families to treasure and cherish. Timeless pieces, hung prominently in their homes with pride that really do create the WOW factor and capture the spirit of their families and personalities.
I very much see Photography for Little People as combining my passion for working with newborns, children and families and being able to capture the wonderful moments of those first precious days in print and impressions. This is both satisfying and rewarding and a unique privilege to be part of.
Newborn safety and handling is paramount. Your precious baby will be considered for the whole of the free photo shoot, which will take place in the comfort of your own home and will take 2-3 hours. This will be relaxed and informal and if baby needs comfort, cuddles or a feed, I will always go at baby’s’ pace. Only a small space is needed in order to take the beautiful photos of your new baby. If you have other children they can be included, and of course, you as parents. I will bring with me samples of how your newborns photos could be displayed along with unique hand and foot impressions. We will view the photos together at the end of the shoot but there is no pressure to buy.
I look forward to working with you and watching your family grow.
