Do you know your Sacred Money Archetype?

This is a completely different type of post today.

My husband and myself took this test, the results are SO interesting and life changing.

Do you know your Sacred Money Archetype?

Take this quiz and get your partner to take it to.

I am the nurturer.

I am pleased my husbands results where completely different – he is the accumulator. I think we compliment each other.

The results are completely fascinating. I would like to explore my archetype more as I can now see the way I see my world and treat money is completely in line with my archetype – The nurturer.

You will find Denise has got your personality spot on and will learn so much about yourselves.

Studio maternity photography

Maternity photography is such an amazing thing.  We do not have our gorgeous bumps forever.  We may not appreciate how beautiful we looked until later.  I love looking back at pictures of my bumps.  Studio maternity photography is private and we and create so many different styles.

Pregnancy photography with daddy to be is an incredible opportunity to document this really special time in your life.   Your child will look back at the photos in years to come and see just how proud mummy and daddy where.  I have read that family portraits boost kid’s self esteem.   Maternity photography must also be pretty good for nurturing a child’s self image too.

These portraits of a brand new mum and dad to be show so much joy and love.

We did not wait until 34-36 weeks for Tatiana and John’s maternity photo shoot as Tatiana had warned me her bump may get to big by then.

I absolutely loved this photo session with the gorgeous couple.

Here are many of my favourite images from our maternity photography session.

Make over portraits and maternity photography

For some ladies a maternity make over just before the session is perfect to feel pampered and confident.

I now work with quite a few make up ladies that I am happy to recommend.

 

Berkshire newborn twin photographer – Look at these beautiful newborn girls

Berkshire newborn twins photographer – Look at these beautiful newborn girls

The idea of getting two newborn babies to sleep at the same time used to be scary when starting out on my journey of newborn photography.  However, that did not put me off at all in fact quite the opposite. Now photographing newborn twins is a love of mine, it is very rewarding.  As a Berkshire newborn twins photographer I am very excited for the rest of 2017 photographing more baby twins.

Any baby is a miracle.  Twins truly are a miracle and I hope to produce timeless images to be cherished forever by generations to come and be known as the go to newborn twins photographer.

Thinking ahead in years to come, when the twins become young adults and look back at these images, they will see how tiny and loving they where as newborn babies and I hope it makes their bond even stronger.

Here is my first newborn twins photoshoot in my studio in Berkshire of 2017.  New parent’s Simona & Piers where an absolute pleasure and Thea & Josie where honestly just perfect on the day too.  Witnessing and documenting the love of the girl’s parents towards each other and of their brand new baby girls was beautiful.

Simona and I met when I visited expecting mums at their yoga class with the lovely Tessa of Tessa’s yoga.  I was thrilled when Simona said she was interested in having her twin girls photographed.

My dream is to deliver gorgeous newborn photography.  I am a patient and experienced photographer that loves newborn twin photographs.

Look out out for another newborn twin photography session coming to the blog very soon.

I look forward to meeting up with the lovely family again soon to hand over their wall art.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the session.

Watch Me Grow Baby Plan

I have been very quiet on both the blog and social media lately as I have been very busy working on lots of wonderful new things for Expecting Photography.

One of the projects and possibly the most exciting has been planning the new and improved Watch Me Grow Baby Plan.

After a newborn photo session, parents can continue to have beautiful portraits taken of their baby over three more sessions until baby is one year old. I will get the opportunity to see baby grow and meet with baby and parents lots again and to celebrate and record all those gorgeous milestones in a babies first year.

This also means that parents that did not have newborn photography will not miss out on all those important milestones in babies first year.
