Newborn, Baby and Child Photography in Kent
Newborn Photo Shoots
I am Tracey-Anne Van De Merwe and KIDZ UNLIMITED Photographic studio in Broadstairs in Thanet, Kent is my photographic studio. I specialize in newborn, baby and child photography with a particular interest in photographing Newborns. As a lady photographer, Qualified Midwife and Mother this is an age group I particularly enjoy. I have worked with newborns most of my life! I love everything about them from their tiny little fingers and toes to their squishy cuddly rolls and new baby smell. I never cease to marvel at the wonderful miracle of a perfect new little person.
Older Baby or Child Photo Shoots
More than anything, I LOVE also to see “my babies” come back for photo shoots as smiley babies and then active busy little toddlers. It is so special to be able to celebrate those first few birthdays with a Cake Smash Shoot, a Smash & Splash Shoot or a Balloon Bash Shoot. I enjoy being challenged by the independence of a 2 year old and listening to their developing speech. I love being part of capturing the little personalities of the Pre-school Child.
Pregnancy Photo Shoots
I am also very keen to do any Pregnancy Shoots……and remember well the excitement of that time! I remember those wonderful little butterfly flutters that develop into great big kicks and wiggles; the first sighting on the scan monitor and feeling of sheer joy every time you imagined holding that baby in your arms. The promise of a new beginning is so tangible as you feel and watch your growing bump. The Pregnancy Shoot is a wonderful way of capturing and recording this special and magical time.
Nursery Schools, Playgroups and Mother and Toddler Groups
In addition to the studio work, I also do external on location work for Nursery Schools, Playgroups and Mother and Toddler Groups. Here I also do Graduation Photos of little people before they start Big School, as well as doing Christmas themed photos at the end of the year. I provide all the props for these shoots. I am really good at coaxing smiles out of reluctant toddlers and little ones.
Dance and Drama School Shows
In addition I specialize in Dance Schools and Dance & Drama School Show Photographs. I love doing special Ballet themed photographs on my hand painted backdrop of young ballerinas. Both my children have dance from an early age and so I have been involved in many dance school and stage shows over the years. I understand the workings of a dance school and the madness and stress of Show Time with all the endless rehearsals and costume fittings. I will work with you to minimize the stress by having the photographing of your children in their show costumes & all after sales taken care of by me. One less thing to worry about. I know how to pose dancers to achieve the best look on camera.
