Documenting your new arrival
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.
Congratulations, whether you are pregnant, having your first baby or extending your family. I am so happy you made it to this page.
Documenting your family story is a beautiful way to mark this time in your life.
In honouring your life and your everyday adventures I believe it is important to celebrate not only the big milestones and events but the small triumphs too. I have found true joy in showing families how truly extraordinary they are.
In an age where digital devices are taking over, I feel it is more important than ever to honour the meaningful.
I am dedicated to creating these moments into beautiful tangible products to hold in your hands and to grace the walls in your home as you walk by them each day. This truly is experiencing what photography is all about.
Celebrating the most precious people in your life. When your children are all grown up you can look back and remember how beautiful your life was in that season of time. Quite often we see our lives hectic, messy, loud and so many other things but when we look back we see it for what it really was. Perfectly imperfect.
If only we could go back in time. This is why I create films and photographs which document your life. Combined together they make the perfect time capsule of your family. An investment so worth it, you will wonder how you have ever lived without it. It is your every day that is worth remembering.
THE SIMPLEST THINGS BRING THE GREATEST JOY
When is the best time to photograph our new addition?
A lot of families love to document the new fresh baby whilst they are still small. The below are good times document particular milestones so you can book in for any amount of sessions you want to over the babies first year.
Newborn within 2-3 weeks
Do you photograph just the baby?
I am a documentary photographer and my specialism is documenting the family story. My aim is to show you what your life looked like and felt like in that season of time. I will take a variation of photographs, The focus is family but I will take some shots of the baby on their own, with siblings and with parents etc
Where do you take the photographs?
I come to your home. I love to document the family story. Where you live, the place you reside. It has many pros, you don't have to worry about getting out somewhere to me and everything you need is right there when you look back at these photographs in years to come you will be able to look directly back at your beautiful honest life. The comfy chair you fed your baby in, the blankets that you snuggled in. Your home, the beautiful space you created for your family.
How long do you spend with us?
I typically spend around 3 hours with you. There is no rush and there is plenty of time to feed the baby, change baby. I document all the little moments. There will always be a " last time" for everything so all of these little moments are part of the story.
What days are you available documenting?
Dates available for 2018 - There are several dates available However I can only take on 16 more clients for the remainder of the year. Due to the time of each session and the experience and the bookings I have already confirmed to keep the standard and service high I do keep my numbers to 36 clients per year. I also sometimes need to keep some flexibility of additional dates incases of any torrential downpours for outdoor only sessions.
Monday - Wednesday I generally do my correspondences, editing, marketing, blogging, etc
and leave the summer and autumn weekends open for my busiest period of the entire year. I can Shoot a session Monday - Wednesday between school hours where needed so please ask if needed.

How can you offer films and photographs at the same time?
I am very skilled at making beautiful short films clips between the stills and then creating a short highlight film of that time to the beautiful music. It's such a lovely way to relive your life. Film is the closest thing to real life. It is a very emotional medium. I also love to allow parents/siblings to create short messages to the baby if they wish which I can include in the film.
Can we see the products before we purchase any frames as we not sure what we want?
Absolutely I will bring a selection with me on the day and at the end of our time together I'll bring them in for you to have a look/feel or them to see how you might like to display your images.

I’m so glad that we chose Jade to capture our family and to celebrate this moment in our lives.
The result? The small moments, the little details, the loving touches and kisses between us as a family were all there for us to see. These fleeting, natural and truly special moments are the things that Jade notices and her ability to capture them demonstrates her skill and depth of emotion as an artist.
The images and film are beautifully natural, and are everything we wanted and more. If you want a photographer to capture the soul of your family on film then you need not look any further.

"You will never have this day with your children again.
Tomorrow they will be a little bigger than they are today.
This day is a gift.
Breathe and notice.
Smell and touch them;
Study their faces and little feet and pay attention.
Relish the charms of the present.
Enjoy today Mama.
It will be over before you know it."
