Newborn Girl Photoshoot Hertfordshire | Keeping it Pure and Simple

My style has changed over the 6 years I have been running my Newborn Photography business in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. When I first started out on this venture I was very much in to themed photographs including pirate outfits, knitted bumblebee hats, fox hats etc. I was also a fan of bright and deep colours.
As time has gone on I have found that I have grown as a photographer. I want my work to represent who I am as a person. I love things looking clean and simple so that your eye is drawn to the baby, not a cute outfit.

I am a massive nature lover. My Dad has referred to me as a hippy many a time. To be honest, I think he is probably right. When we connect with nature but either swimming in the sea, burying our toes in the sand and walking through woodlands, we feel so much calmer and connected to life. This is why I love using flowers and leaves in my photography set ups.

With regards to colours I like to keep things light. Whites and creams are often the base of all my sessions. I love the innocence and cleanliness of white, perfect for newborns. I do like to add colour here and there though to make the image stand out even more. I like to do this by adding a floral hair tie, leaves, coloured fabric wraps and hats. I always ask clients before a session if there are any colours they would like me to use during their session. Often they will ask for colours that match their nursery so that when they put their images on the wall they fit in with their decor.

If you would like to capture the details of your little one it is best to do so under 14days old. Please contact us to book you in 🙂

Outdoor Session Price Increase 2020- Book now to avoid!

One of my favourite things about spring and summer is that I get to travel outside of my home studio and create beautiful family portraits outside in nature. I am lucky that Stevenage, Hertfordshire has a lot of beautiful surrounding areas to photograph.

I have kept the price for these sessions the same for over 3 years. I do feel with the rise in costs to run my business that it is time to slightly raise the price for these A La Carte Mini Sessions. Please note all other session packages will stay the same for 2020!

So how much more is this going to cost? Not much! These sessions have been priced at £85 for the past few years, there will be an increase of £14, making the new cost £99. Package details can be found below…

Balancing Act | Newborn Session with Krish | Jenna Marshall Photography Stevenage Photographer

It has been quite a few months since I blogged one of my newborn photography sessions. My summer has been so busy with holidays, day trips and of course newborn and family photography sessions that I have had to put writing to the side for a while. I sometimes feel overwhelmed trying to keep up with it all. Trying to give my children my attention while also maintain my business is a hard act to balance. It is much easier to manage it all when my kids are at school.  I know many parents struggle with finding the balance between work and home life, remember you are not alone!

Are you ever envious of other parents you see on social media who appear to be nailing life? They look well dressed, make up is flawless, getting home from work and having the energy to make slime or bake with their also well dressed kids in their perfectly clean house.  Please remember this is just an illusion. Behind the scenes they are struggling too. It’s just that people do not post about it. I for one feel like I am drowning trying to keep my house clean! Trying to keep on top of my editing and business tasks is another challenge I usually fall short on. I am one of those people who wear a pretty dress on the school run but when I get home I immediately change into a comfy band t-shirt and pyjama bottoms. Because why on earth would you choose to be dressed during the day if you do not have to lol. Anyhow, I went on a rant there. Please remember to not compare your life to anyone else on social media. You are doing your best and that will always be good enough. Ever want a rant about it, let me know. I do love a rant.

Images featured are from a newborn session with the very Handsome Krish and his parents. How amazing is his hair?! Daddy is a Leicester City fan so of course we had to of course involved this in the session. Can’t wait to see this little dude at his next session <3 *Remember to book in your newborn session whilst still pregnant*
