Thank you for your interest in my profile and welcome to the world of Photography for Little People by Poppy.
As a mother of a very cute little boy I can recognise the importance of the very early days when your special little one arrives, the days weeks and months pass so quickly and it’s difficult to remember how small they are, like most parents we were caught up with the sleepless nights and although we captured some memories we could have done a lot more, after all it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.
I’ve had a passion for photography since I was a child following in the footsteps of my father, having studied photography I graduated Nottingham Trent University too many years ago, now too remember. I took these newfound skills and worked for car magazines initially and then went onto travelling the world indulging my passion on a cruise ship capturing people’s special memories. Becoming a mum for the first time changed my outlook on life and nothing beats those special family moments.
My aim is to capture those life changing memories so they can be treasured and looked back upon, whether that’s through a beautiful set of photographs or creating impressions of your little one’s hands & feet that capture every detail. I will come and visit you in the comfort of your home at a time that suits you, using the latest equipment to capture your family memories. Over the space of a session we will work together to create a relaxing, safe & comfortable experience to truly capture those magical moments, with a wide range of options we can create the perfect memory whether it’s for pride of place in your home or for a gift for the proud grandparents. With no obligation to purchase there is no pressure.
Each family is unique and I relish the opportunity to be welcomed into your home to share and capture the special early hours and days of your newborn.
Look forward to booking an appointment with you soon.
