Baby Photography Abergavenny - Newborn Photography South Wales - Garden Photoshoot

Updated: Jul 18

Ffion got in touch with me via instagram, upon seeing her profile I recognised her as one of the subjects featured in a fellow photographers project to document his neighbours during lockdown… I have now realised that when meeting clients it’s probably a bit weird to say, “I know where you live!” Sorry Ffion! Anyway! On to the lush baby photography Abergavenny local!

Elena looking unusually serious.

First I headed into the families garden through a side access on the street and was greeted by Ali holding little raspberry blowing pro, Elena. I was taken aback by how gorgeous she was and so full of smiles!  Immediately it was clear that this was going to be a good session.

Never seen such a smiley baby!

We got to chatting about all things baby and lockdown. Ali shared how it was difficult as his family live in the Sates and it was uncertain when they would be able to visit to introduce everyone to Elena. I can’t imagine how hard that is. But it was lovely to know that I could provide their baby photography in Abergavenny to send to loved ones on the other side of an ocean!

Ffion and Ali also had a good giggle, saying they can’t wait for Elena to meet Ali’s twin brother, just to see how confused this little girl will be! I really hope they film that moment as that sounds like a viral video to me for sure!

A bit of beard pulling, good fun.

Baby photography Abergavenny, to capture the little things! 


Having a good chew.

Lovely little Elena was going through every parents least favourite thing….teething!! Love her, cutting teeth is no fun but luckily she found the perfect teething toy for the naughty gums. Mummy and Daddy’s fingers! It might seem silly but it’s lovely to document all these little details, first tooth, a love of blowing raspberries, the things that make them belly laugh. Because these are the little details that are so easy to forget during the whirlwind of parenting.

Now Daddy's turn.
Hear me roar!

I always like to make it a point in when creating baby photography Abergavenny to include beloved pets in portraits. As a fanatical animal lover I know how special a place pets hold in a family. Throughout the session a friendly ginger cat made his presence known, trying desperately to get a starring role in the portraits. It wasn’t till quite late on into the session I discovered that this cat actually belonged to the family next door! Although I feel like thats very cat like behaviour right?!

Beautiful brown eyed girl

Love your job!


I pinch myself daily at the wonderful clients I get to work with creating baby photography Abergavenny. I’m starting to realise though that my relaxed, happy approach to photography attracts relaxed happy families! And I couldn’t be more pleased!

A laid back and relaxed session
