As a Mum myself I know how important it is capture those key stages of babies first year, to look back on and remember those tiny toes and big beautiful eyes. They change so much in the first year and it’s lovely to remember little details that can be easily forgotten . I absolutely love looking back at the photos of my children when they were babies, it brings a smile to my face when I see how tiny they were. And capturing my children is how my love for photography began.
I like to capture their wispy hair and the way they screw up their faces when they yawn. How small they are with their hands hidden in their baby grow.
I think it’s lovely to capture baby in their own environment, it makes the photos much more personal and natural. It can also give you the chance to show of babies nursery that you’ve spent so long decorating and planning.
It is so important to capture the connection between baby and Mum, the way Mum looks at her baby like there’s nothing else in the world more important. And of course Dad too! A lot of photos we take are of our children and we forget the importance of being in the frame ourselves. Photos are there to look back on in years to come. And how lovely for your child to be able to see that special bond that came along when they were first born and is still there today.
Hi! My name is Vicky and I live in Bedfordshire with my Husband John and 2 children Niamh and Seth I have always been the one holding the camera. My love for photography started when I joined Instagram in 2012. I felt inspired when I saw the beautiful photos people were taking of their children. I then knew I wanted to capture my own children in the same way. My husband bought me my first bridge camera. Since then my love for photography has grown. Other than photography I love listening to music whether I’m in the car or doing the housework. I love to go and watch my favourite bands Billy Talent, Weezer and Foo Fighters to name a few.
