Advertising Feature from Luci Matthews
The world of newborn and family photography certainly is a competitive market in York, but the wonderful thing is, babies are being brought into this world every single day. Families are being created every single day, and women are finding out they are expecting every single day. As a mum of 3 I feel experienced enough to agree with the cliché that time goes past so quickly. One day you see that second line on a pregnancy test, and the next moment they are off to school without a backward glance at you! I wish many times that I could just freeze a moment in time, stop their little hands and feet from getting so big, freeze that big, gummy first smile, breathe in their milky, warm breath forever. But time does move on and with that comes first teeth, teeth falling out, falls, bruises and scrapes, social independence, and attitudes to match their growing personalities.
I can freeze all these moments in time for you and create beautiful images for you to keep and treasure forever, so one day, in 10, 20, 30 years time you can look back and remember that exact moment like it was today. I for one wish that I had captured these moments with my own children.
I can capture your beautiful, growing belly in contrasting black and white images (because lets face it….pregnancy is a pretty amazing, superhero thing that women do!)
I specialise in black and white images of babies as I believe they show the rawness and naturalness of newborns. I also have some beautiful props to capture those pure, innocent photos of your baby.
Please visit my Facebook page and website to see examples of my work.
These photoshoots take place in my home from home studio in my living room just 20 minutes from York.
I can also come out with your family and capture outdoor family shoots, or be the photographer at your family event, whether it be a christening or a 60th birthday party!
