A “Rainbow Baby” is a term that is used to describe a baby who born into a family following a previous pregnancy which resulted in a miscarriage, premature birth, still birth, or infant death. The rainbow symbolises the hope that this new baby brings to the family without forgetting the impact of the storm of losing a child. Baby Loss by miscarriage is something which is very close to my heart and something which happens to more people than you would imagine. It is also a subject that is rarely spoken about. This year, I made a commitment to photograph one Rainbow Baby every month for FREE!! My aim being to bring this make this a subject that we speak [...]
It was a good thing this boy was so cute, because he rally made me work hard for the shots! He was not too keen on being naked and did not much like lying on his tummy. But he did LOVE to be wrapped up and and he loved a cuddle!
At 8.10am 19 years ago today, I became a Mother, when my beautiful daughter, Carrigan was born. I remember the day like it was yesterday....... the overwhelming rush of emotion and the complete high that this beautiful baby was mine. I thought as a qualified midwife that I was fairly well prepared for caring for a newborn......But...... Nothing will ever prepare you for motherhood, no books or antenatal classes, no anecdotes or time spent with friends, no apps or midwifes.

But still, there are things we all wish we had known before having a baby, to stop us worrying, to keep us sane and to [...]
New Year Give-away Well the year has come to an end..........and what a year it has been!! I turned 50 years old and celebrated my 20th Wedding Anniversary! The year for Kidz Unlimited Photographic Studio started off quietly but got busier and busier as the year progressed. The year saw me photographing 72 Newborn Babies, including 3 sets of twins. I do feel so honoured to have been chosen to capture all these new babies as this really is my passion. I love nothing more than a day in the studio with a cuddly, squishy newborn photographing all those tiny features that change and develop so quickly. I also find it very encouraging that of these 2015 newborns.........16 of them [...]
Margate Newborn Photographer - Katie Christine 4 weeks old It only seems like yesterday when I was taking photos of Katie’s big sister, Jennifer... but here we are two and half years years later with little Katie Christine in the studio. What a little sweetheart she is, I really enjoyed having lots of cuddles with her. As a newborn she’s so different to her big sister, much chubbier and with dark hair compared to Jennifer's red hair.....but you can still see they are sisters! It was so lovely to see Jennifer again too. She is just so beautiful with her gorgeous red hair and did so well posing with Katie. Katie is a little older than most newborns I have in [...]
