Family photo session in St Albans

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting Naomi and Robin’s family in their beautiful St Albans home. Naomi got in touch with me to book a family photo session and capture some special moments with their daughters Heidi and Annie.

I had a hard time picking my favourites photos from this session as there were so many I loved:

Maternity photo session in St Albans

This week I had the pleasure of meeting Anna and Rich for the first of their Bump to Baby sessions.

We started the session in their beautiful St Albans home and then wandered over to Verulamium park for a few shots overlooking St Albans Abbey. Anna’s due date is next week so it won’t be long before I am back to meet their brand new baby!

“Out and about in St Albans” – St Albans children photographer

I am very excited to share this family photo session as it’s a bit different from what I usually do. Sheenagh and Jamie love to walk in St Albans with their two boys and wanted me to capture the fun they have together as a family, incorporating St Albans landmarks such as the St Albans Abbey of course, the Clock Tower and the roman walls. Our city is full of history and I thought it was a great idea to include this in the family photo shoot.

We met up bright and early at the St Albans Clock Tower and started walking down through the cobbled alleys towards the Cathedral, and at 8am we pretty much had the place to ourselves which was perfect.

Cute baby photo session – Harpenden photographer Stephanie Belton

Meet baby Oliver, at just 5 and a half months old he really is a bundle of cuteness! I met his parents Daisy and Tom for a family photo session in Harpenden last Saturday. Poppy, the family dog, was also very happy to pose and joined us for a couple of shots.

Oliver work so hard that after an hour he was ready for his nap. Daisy asked me if I could stay a little longer and capture a few shots of him sleeping. He settled himself to sleep in about 5 minutes (why did my children never do that?) and let me take some peaceful shots of his cosy nap on the fluffy rug, what a treat!
