Here you will find info on my news and offers, as well as general stories about sessions I do or have done.

BANPAS ~ Baby & Newborn Photography Association

I am a member of BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association)

As a newborn and baby photographer, I take the safety of my little clients very seriously. It might surprise you to know that the newborn photography industry is completely unregulated. Photographers like me, who take safety seriously, have to take it upon ourselves to be trained and educated on how to ensure the beautiful images we create are done safely.

I began my training with Barrett & Coe back in 2011, since then, I have personally trained with some of the best newborn photographers including Melanie East , Sujata Setia who I did an amazing lifestyle session with and also online sessions with Kelly Brown . I continue to invest in training and development and am about to train with Suzy Mitchell.

Being a newborn and baby photographer requires a unique set of skills and there is a worldwide organisation that exists to support photographers like me, who want to have access to safety training and resources that we can use to provide clients like you with a better service. I’m delighted to be a member of BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association) and you will be able to find me on their directory here. They also have a Facebook page for pregnant and new parents here.

I am also a member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) and you can find my listing here.

Cake Smash Launch!

So after avoiding Cake Smash sessions for so long mainly due to the mess, I have finally given in (Eek!) because I get asked about them and they look so fun!! My first ever Cake Smash baby came on Monday (see images below) and I think its safe to say although a little hesitant at first due to her teething, by the end she was thoroughly enjoying her session!

I have launched my Cake Smash sessions, these can be styled as simple or extravagant or somewhere inbetween, the choice is yours! To celebrate I am offering a FREE session for two soon to be 1 year olds! So, that means 2 winners!! The session will be free and will include 10 digital image downloads with print release.

All you have to do is go ahead and like my Facebook page to keep up to date on all my news, sessions and offers. Once you have liked my page, like and share the Cake Smash competition post on my facebook page. I will pick the winners names at random and announce the winners when I have enough entrants. So get liking and sharing everyone!

My Studio

I haven’t blogged about my studio since it was first built so here is a little update for you and a few pictures to give you a little snapshot of it; its always nice to see where you are going to before your session. My studio is snug and comfortable with everything we need for your session. As space is tight I usually ask that only immediate family attend especially for newborn sessions as these are long. If there are siblings in attendance I will try to get the sibling images done first and I suggest bringing them something to do after. There is also a lovely little green outside my house which is good for a little walk/play if you have your partner with you who can take them.

I am lucky that some days I am able to use natural light for newborn sessions which I do like to be able to do. However some days this just isn’t possible so I will use a studio light.

I have all the blankets, wraps, headbands, outfits and props we might need for maternity, newborn and baby studio sessions. I have my own style, I like neutral tones and natural photos that wont date with time, but before your session begins we will discuss what you like and don’t like and colours and use of props. I like to offer a bespoke service to you because after all you are the ones buying the images of your children and I want you to love seeing them on your walls forever not just till your next session. If you want to bring your own outfits for baby/child sitting sessions that is fine, I recommend plain colours that match with any siblings and no logos.

I also have some simple little wooden toys to keep little ones entertained during their sitting session, sometimes the set up can be a little daunting so adding in a little toy to keep them distracted helps! Most of mine were from www.alongcameollie.co.uk which I love ♥

Around my studio you will see some samples of the products I sell after the session so do ask while you are there if there is anything you want to see.

If you want to book in your session, please contact me here:

Nursery Sessions

I have not blogged about my nursery sessions before, but they are a real favourite of mine. Having had my children at nursery I know how nice it is to have some photos of their time there because for some children it is a big part of their life before they start school. I can offer my sessions whenever a nursery requires them, October time is popular as parents love to gift images of their children to family for Christmas. I also offer Spring sessions, Summer is usually ‘graduation’ time so another nice opportunity to get some photos that will remind parents and children of their pre-school life!

The sessions can be long in order to fit everyone in but I love doing them. Its so lovely to meet each child when they are brought in, each with their individual personalities, you just never know who is coming in next or what they will bring to the session. Some need a bit more help and time then others as lets face it being brought into a room to have your photo done can be daunting for anyone, but they soon warm up and I (with help from the lovely staff) manage to get a smile out of the not so keen ones!

I offer competitively priced prints and packages for these sessions, all images are printed at a professional photography lab so the quality is high and they are delivered to parents in a strut mount and clear sleeve ready to gift to loved ones. The feedback I receive for these sessions is very positive.

If you run or work at a nursery, or if you are a parent and would like to recommend my sessions to your nursery, please contact me so I can email you more details and get you booked in.

Thank you so much to all the nurseries and lovely parents whose children I photographed in 2017, I look forward to hopefully seeing you all again and some new nurseries for 2018.

Thank-you also to the parents of these lovely children who have let me use their children’s images to show you a few from my 2017 sessions.

  

 

 

 

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you all managed to have a lovely Christmas and New Year in spite of all the bugs going round. After a very busy Autumn I was lucky to be able to have a relaxing and peaceful Christmas (with just a mild cold).

Now all the festivities are over I can share a little collage of some of my favourite photos from my toasty Christmas mini sessions. I really enjoyed doing them so thank you to those who came along. I am already thinking of my theme/colour for next year! Who knows it might be a white Christmas next year for a change 🙂

Lots of exciting things going on here at KWP HQ this year, I’m reviewing some of my products and pricing for the Spring. I am also investing in some new backdrops and baby props so will be doing a few model calls soon to try those out, keep an eye on my Facebook page for more info on that. www.facebook.com/kimwright

I will also be at The Norfolk Bump Baby & Toddler Show at OPEN in the city in May. I missed the last one as it was my daughters birthday so look forward to seeing you all at this one.

I have got  a couple of January package offers on at the moment, contact me if you are interested I do have some sessions available:

Child Studio Session (Suitable for sitting upwards) £80 includes 5 digital images.

Newborn Package £200 includes 5 digital images or £300 includes 10 digital images.

Thank you to all my 2017 customers, I am looking forward to seeing you all in 2018 as well as meeting lots of lovely new ones.

Best Wishes for 2018,

Kim x
