Outdoor Newborn Photoshoot at Coombe Wood Gardens, Croydon

I first met this family back in November when there was just three of them. We managed to squeeze their maternity mini session in the day before Lockdown 2.0 started. Covid may not have been our side, but the glorious Autumn weather was! Check out that session <here>.

And then there were four

Fast forward a few months to Lockdown 3.0 and this lovely little lady made her debut into the world. The newborn session they had planned sadly had to be put on hold for a while, and then we had to make it an outdoors one, but we did eventually get there! We settled on <Coombe Wood Park> in Croydon. A small but beautifully formed little park. It was nice and quiet and full of lovely spring flowers. And the sun made an appearance too!

Cuddles with mummy

Mums are usually the ones taking photos, so during my family photoshoots I make sure to capture lots of images of mummies with their little ones. This little lady didn't want to be put down at all during our session but it meant we got lots of cuddly photos like this!

Let's not forget daddy

We got some lovely shots of daddy with his little lady as well. Just look at those big blue eyes!

A very proud big sister

As is the way with babies, we stopped the newborn photoshoot as and when we needed to for feeding and changing and cuddles, which gave me a chance to capture this very proud big sister having some snuggle time with mummy and daddy too.


It's very easy, especially with a newborn, to never find time to actually print your images, but you should and here's <why>. To make it easier, and to make sure the photography you've invested in doesn't sit forgotten in the cloud, all my packages come with a few prints to get you started.


Wondering what to wear to a spring outdoor newborn photoshoot? Fear not, I've got you covered. Once you've booked, I'll whizz over a detailed session guide. It's full of advice on how to get ready for your session and loads of tips to help with that all important question - what do we we wear?! But as you can see from these photos, baby blues and soft pinks work really well. As do light, floaty fabrics. You can check out my <Pinterest board> for more inspiration on what you can wear for your spring photoshoot.
