Photo Sessions are for teens and preteens too! | Jenna Marshall Photography Stevenage, Hertfordshire

When people book me for their family photo sessions in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, more often than not the children are 10 and under. I am not sure why people seem to think that family photos when they hit the teen stage are less important. This stage where they start to find their own way in the world and begin to live more independently from their parents, surely this is the moment to put some time aside, have a lovely evening walk or picnic and get some beautiful family images, before they get too grown and no longer agree to it. I was so glad when this beaut family booked their session. Even though the eldest son I believe is 14, this didn’t stop him letting go of that ‘too cool for this’ demeanour and enjoying being a child for the session, he climbed the tree alongside his younger siblings. Who knows how many more times he will do that.
I saw a quote on pinterest.

How many summers do you have left until your children are grown?

How are you going to spend yours?

Baby boy Newborn Session with Jenna Marshall Photography Stevenage, Hertfordshire

What I would give to be able to open my doors and be photographing gorgeous newborns again. Unfortunately due to the Lockdown it is unlikely I will be reopen until Spring time. I am missing my snuggles with these cute little babies and getting to meet families at such a big milestone in their lives.
This particular newborn session featuring in the blog today is from one of my returning clients. I have been lucky enough to photograph all 3 of their handsome little boys as newborns. We kept to neutral colours to keep it pure. I got to try out some new props too including my new moon shaped pillow and my leaf backdrop.
If you or anyone you know are expecting a baby from March onwards and would like a newborn session, please remember to contact me during your pregnancy (from week 12onwards) to reserve your space. All prices can be found on this page: Newborn Packages

I am still here | Jenna Marshall Photography

It has been almost a year since I last posted on this page. This past year has been incredibly tough for so many people in different ways. As a family photographer, I have had to close my doors multiples times to clients during lockdowns. I feel like I have hardly worked over the past year. I am missing it terribly. There were the odd months in 2020 when photographers were allowed to work with certain restrictions. I was able to hold a handful of outdoor sessions during the summer months. Being able to go for short ‘socially distanced’, (phrase of the year), walks with families, getting some sunshine, fresh air, a chat while kids played and explored made for some really lovely mornings and evenings. Below are a few portraits from one of these sessions. I am really hoping to be able to reopen in the Spring. I am still taking bookings for outdoor sessions for April onwards if you would like to reserve a space. Take a look at packages HERE
