This Sunday is Mother’s Day. It is a day we should all take at least a moment to reflect and give thanks for our mothers and all the daily sacrifices they made for us as children and their continued love for us as we navigate the choppy world of parenthood ourselves.

Whether you are a birth mother, grandmother, adopted mother or just somebody that has been a motherly figure in your life – all I can say is hat's off to all of you. It’s a tough but rewarding job, the best in the world. It is often that love and devotion between mother and child that I look to capture with my camera and recreate for you in a timeless piece of artwork.

I am extremely privileged in my work as a photographer to witness first-hand the raw power of love a mother has for her newborn. Those precious moments, when the baby is still curled up and milky-eyed, are wonderful but all too fleeting.

After two weeks babies go through a growth spurt and will be more likely to stretch their arms and legs during a photoshoot rather than be amenable to be placed in a posed position while sleeping soundly! That is why I suggest mums book in with me in after they reach the 20-week stage, as then we can make sure I can definitely see them within that crucial window. Mothers often turn up nervous or tired, and I do my best to calm and settle both them and their babies. I never rush the process. If they need to feed their babies, that is the priority.

But I don’t just work with newborns. I also welcome and enjoy photographing families with children of all ages. With toddlers and older children you get to see their characters beginning to shine through, and it is that, and the love between not just the mum and child but the family as a whole that I hope I show in my images. It is great when I can take them out on location to a bluebell wood or a freshly harvested field in the autumn. There is something about being out in the open that brings out a sense of  freedom and joy.

I have met some amazing mothers and their families over the course of my work. But obviously, some stories stay with me more than others. Most are happy, but of course there are some sad stories too.

One first time mum came in the studio with her child. She revealed that she had undergone numerous rounds of IVF before finally conceiving at the age of 50. She came with this gorgeous healthy baby boy and the joy in her heart came shining through the lens.


Another wonderful and loving family of five came in for a shoot a while ago with their brand new baby. Their third child had tragically died of sepsis. However, the mum wanted to have a family photo which included a memory of the little baby boy. We included his name and his special teddy in the image. It was lovely to be able to create such a lifelong memory for the family.

Then there was the mum who, after years of trying both naturally and through IVF could not conceive, and ended up using a surrogate. They were lucky and a baby girl was conceived. They wanted to complete their family and go for another child, so they tried again but this time unsuccessfully. After much thought, they decided to give it one last go, and to their delight the surrogate got pregnant. They arrived at my studio with their new little baby boy and it was clear they were absolutely over the moon with their completed family.

Mothers day

These are the kinds of mums, and their families I meet weekly in my studio, and all have a story to tell. As Mother’s Day approaches I am saluting all the all mums out there doing their best to struggle through the agonies and frustrations but more importantly rich rewards of parenthood.

I would love you to share your #everydaymum moment with me this Mother's Day. Tell us why your mum's so special to you and I will share on my pages.

So, what magic happens after your photoshoot? After the shoot…

I spend much more time in the edit suite afterwards as I do actually taking the photos. This is called post-production. I want to present your child, or family, at their very best. I won’t change the essence of the photo but I can enhance the images to make them pop and capture every beautiful, delicate detail. Editing involves numerous things – checking colours, cropping, checking skin tones, getting rid of blemishes, fluff, snot, poo – yes, I am not joking, as well as checking the background of a photo. I will also do my best to flatter a self-conscious mummy. But editing and retouching can be a lengthy process especially when I am such a perfectionist. In the early days, I learnt the hard way - rushed to take the shot then spent hours sorting out the finer details in Photoshop. The absolute best way is to get the shot as close to perfection straight away in camera - so I take my time setting up the shot and take numerous test shots first to make sure I am happy. When the photos are finished, around 2-3 weeks after your shoot I will send you a link to view them. You have 2 weeks to select your favourite images and decide if you would like to also purchase wall art. To use a hackneyed phrase, at the end of the day, customer satisfaction is everything and I depend on word of mouth for my business to continue. So my aim and intention is to leave you delighted and content!

Here are a couple of photos showing before and after so you can see a bit of my editing magic.

My Favourite local hotspots Rebecca Fitch is one of the top local family and baby photographers in South Bucks with first hand experience of photographing newborns and young children. Every week she blogs about her work and gives her tops tips on subjects like how to capture the most natural photos of your family as well as giving an insight on her local area and how she juggles life as a working mum to two young energetic boys.


I love living in Gerrard’s Cross, there is a great community feel about this small town. We have everything we need on our doorstep including some excellent restaurants Lomito Jack and Alice and The Grocer and great independent shops Heidi and HudsonLisa La ModaMy Boutique and the fab children's shop E-side that cater for everything from organic falafel wraps, haute couture design and fabulous facials at the Deluxe Clinic. Also, when we feel the need to branch out, we can jump onto a Chiltern express train and be in Marylebone in 18 minutes! While we have lost some lovely shops, many more superb ones have shot up to replace them and today I am sharing some of my local favourites.

 Jack and Alice – Wine Bar & Pantry Dining

40 Packhorse Road

This jaunty wine bar was a most welcome addition to the town when it opened just over two years ago and it’s become a regular haunt for my mum chums and I to catch up over a decent coffee, enjoy a cheeky glass of Shiraz or share a cheese platter. It is also a great place to celebrate a birthday as they regularly hold fun nights, like Alice’s Gin Night or Jack’s Shack Burger Night or even, if it’s your thing, a special cheesy Fondue Menu. Definitely my go-to place in town, and also perfect for a quick bite before a trip to the Everyman cinema across the road.

Heidi and Hudson  – Independent Mens and Womenswear Boutique

 68 Packhorse Road

This is a family-run business that offers cool, hip and practical affordable luxury wear for all ages as well as being a perfect place to shop away any baby-blues! They always seem to anticipate what’s on-trend and rarely can I walk by without falling in love with something in their carefully curated window displays. If I am ever in need of quick lovely present for a friend, I always head to H&H for a fabulous scarf, belt or funky T-shirt.

Lomito – Argentinian Steakhouse

55 Packhorse Road

This sophisticated new Argentinian Steakhouse opened with a bang this summer, bringing a corner of glitz and swank to the Home Counties. From its sexy little bar serving divine cocktails to the superb menu of top-class steaks, it’s hard to fault. But it is not cheap and if you are out with friends and the wine is flowing, expect to pay the price. However, Lomito has become a firm favourite with my family, not least because my boys can’t get enough of the Menu de Niño, three courses including rump steak at the very decently priced £6.75. They also do gift vouchers which make great presents.

Lisa La Moda – Women’s Fashion Boutique

12 Packhorse Road

Lisa La Moda is one of the fashion shops on the high street that really stands out with a really unique range of clothes. If you have a big event coming up where you need that special dress - this is the place to stop by. Lisa and her team do their best to find that perfect dress making you feel very special in the process. The shop is warm, inviting and has a fantastic range to choose from that really does cater for all ages.  Just pop in, you will be surprised what you find in there. 

Health and Beauty

58-60 Packhorse Road

This stalwart on the high street don’t have an official website but they don’t need it with their solid reputation. Those in the know looking for help with a quick medical query, seek out the very excellent advice of pharmacist Arvind or his equally professionally sound son Sanil. They can give advice on a range of medical conundrums and will always take the time for a quick private consultation or direct you to make a doctor’s appointment where necessary.

The Grocer

5 Station Road

The invigoration of the high street continues with this new casual but buzzy brunch, lunch and real coffee house. It’s the third deli-style store in a small chain that prides itself in fresh, seasonal food like roasted aubergine, garlic yoghurt, za’atar and pomegranate seed salad. Or maybe you’d prefer the chargrilled broccoli with chilli and flaked almonds. The cakes are also divine and a must try is the pistachio olive oil cake accompanied with a proper barista-style flat white. 

Deluxe Clinic – Luxury Face and Skin clinic

3 Marsham Way

Another newcomer to the town but my guess is they will be around a long time as they offer something lacking in Gerrard’s Cross - an affordable luxury beauty salon. Whatever treatment you need or want - they do it. Simona, the owner has really got it right. Customer service is second to none and I can vouch they can deliver great results on skin treatment. They also have the latest Soprano ice laser hair removal machine that is so amazing. It really is completely pain free and achieves immediate results - lots of men use it too for getting rid of unwanted hair. 

E-Side – Family Store for Modern, Organic Family Living

14 Station Road

This new eco-independent boutique specialises in high-end modern sustainable design for children. Inside this tiny store you will find contemporary children’s furniture including beds, mattresses and chairs as well as wooden toys, lights, gifts, kids clothing - all made in Europe and boasting organic and chemical-free materials. What’s not to love? Definitely a place to treat your little darlings. They will love you forever, and you will feel better for buying a long-lasting, quality, product.

childrens photographer Gerrards Cross, Rebecca Fitch

I also need to mention a fabulous clothes shop in Farnham Common. I love ‘My Boutique’. A lovely lady called Simone Markham owns it. It has new stock all the time and keeps bang on trend and the best thing is it’s so affordable you can keep going back for more. As it has been such a success Simone has now opened another shop in Bourne End. Check out her weekly vlogs on Facebook.

How, why and when to book your newborn shoot Rebecca Fitch is one of the top local family and baby photographers in South Bucks, with many years of first hand experience of photographing newborns and young children. Every week she blogs about her work, gives tops tips about everything from capturing the best photos on your iphone to how to soothe your crying infant, as well as giving an insight on how she juggles life as a working mum to two young energetic boys.



Newborn photography is becoming an increasingly popular choice for new parents and it is not hard to see why. It’s the perfect way to capture those tiny features, squishy hands and feet, and all the funny little expressions that will be over before you blink. When I look back at the photographs of those early days, I find it hard to believe how much my children have changed. But there are so many considerations to make and options to choose from in choosing the right photographer to capture these moments. How are you supposed to know which photographer is truly the right one for you? I have put together some top tips to help you to make the right decision for booking this once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Most established newborn photographers book up well in advance with some families booking after they have had their 12 week scan.  I recommend making a booking around the time of your 20 week scan. If you leave it too late you may find your favourite choice of photographer may not have space in their diary.  I will accept babies up to 6 months old, although the ideal time to photograph your baby is between 6 and 16 days old.  



You don’t have to do anything. It is your choice. But I prefer to take photos so early on because that fleeting newborn stage is so easily forgotten. Newborns change dramatically in the first weeks of life. When they are first born, they are able to bend and curl into sweet little poses, mimicking how they lived inside the womb. And, they have that precious, brand-new “newborn look”. All these amazing characteristics will begin to disappear forever after just a few short weeks.



Always check out your potential photographer’s website, google business pages and Facebook page before booking.  The reviews should give you a good idea about their business and what clients think of them.  Recommendations from friends and family are the best way to find the perfect photographer. They can show you their final products, prints and share their experience.



One of the most important considerations is your newborn’s safety during the actual shoot.  During a session you will come to my home studio and trust me with your brand new newborn baby. I handle and sooth them making sure at all times they are happy, safe and calm. You can ask your photographer how they approach newborn safety. Ask how the photographer ensures the safety of your baby when posing. The baby should never look uncomfortable or be unsupported. Photoshop is often used to edit out a supporting hand or finger.

Gerrards Cross newborn photographernewborn baby


Do ask your photographer what, if any outfits, they provide during the session. Photographers who specialise in newborn photography will have a collection of blankets, wraps, bonnets and headbands in a variety of colours for you to choose from. But mostly baby will be photographed nude. 



This is probably one of the most common concerns our new mums have – and it’s why the length of the photography session is so important. Your baby is so tiny and so new; at this newborn stage, their routine is still evolving. Babies work to their own schedule, and your photographer should work with this. My sessions are completely baby led, so if baby needs feeding, changing or simply just a cuddle, I will work around your baby’s needs. Babies all sleep when they are ready, and we make the most of these sleepy moments to take the photographs. There are also some lovely photos that can be achieved with baby awake.



Your baby’s comfort is as important to you as it is to me. Apart from being spotless, I always make sure that the room is nice and warm. I will also play white noise constantly, this will keep your baby calm and hopefully you too! I have had a few dads fall asleep.



The best thing I can advise is to not to be nervous. If your baby is crying you can trust me that we will work together to soothe your child and I will stop the shoot until they are comfortable and happy and if necessary give you the privacy you need to feed and comfort your child. Take a deep breath and relax, and have fun, I will take my time and not rush you. Patience is one of the most important things when it comes to newborn photography.




Check what is included in the session price. Any good photographer should have a clear price list available so you can plan ahead for image purchases with no hidden costs. You wouldn’t go out and buy the cheapest car seat, you’d go and buy the best one you could, to keep your baby safe! And it’s the same with photographers, there are always going to be photographers offering very cheap sessions, but please consider that on those prices they can’t afford to invest in the training and equipment to take the time to give you and your baby the best possible service.


What if my baby dirties their nappy, poos or wees during the session?

This is what babies do – we clean them up and carry on. All the wraps and blankets in the studio are washable! It’s no big deal to me so don’t let it worry you!

Welcome to Rebecca Fitch Photography. I have been photographing children professionally for many years and specialise in newborns. I’d like to introduce myself properly to you and how better than to tell you a little about myself and how I got into photographing adorable little people!

When I was younger, and before I moved into production and choreography, I worked as a professional dancer and then a model, so understood what was needed on the other side of the camera to get the best shots.  I always loved taking my own photos and after having my own children (two boys aged 6 and 8) started refining the images I took of them.  Friends started asking me to take pictures of their youngsters. I realised I was good at it and loved it. But what became increasingly clear was my passion for newborns in particular. When my husband said ‘no’ to a third child (we had always agreed on 2!), I realised my job could tick all my boxes. Handling, cuddling and photographing beautiful newly born babies every week and then giving them back! 

This is me and my 3 boys incase you were wondering what I looked like!


About five years ago, I decided to take the plunge and go professional. Since then I have taken several courses and trained alongside some of the best in the business including accredited newborn photographers Ana BrandtJillian Greenhill and Tracy Willis - safety of these tiny babies is paramount. When deciding on a Newborn photographer - make sure they have training, it's scary to think that anyone can call themselves a newborn photographer.  At the end of last year, I decided to try something new and managed to get onto a course with the very talented and amazing Paulina Duczman  who specialises in fine art photography. She has inspired me so much and shaped some of my most recent work based more around children than babies.  Click here to see gorgeous Olivia

Fine Art Photography by Rebecca FitchPhotographing children in the studio in Gerrards Cross


Meeting all these professionals has been super inspirational in different ways. I love learning new techniques and ideas and looking at a subject with a fresh pair of eyes - different photographers can approach projects very differently.  

I am very lucky to have my own studio at home. It is immaculately clean and set up with all the props, clothes and accessories I need for a shoot with newborn, babies or children. I also have a beautiful and flattering collection of maternity dresses for mums-to-be. 

My favourite shoot has to have been with a family that brought their rather large dog to the studio. I don’t usually work with animals! So we had these two beautiful girls, their parents and this crazy dog all in this one room. It was pretty hectic. But it was all great fun and towards the end the one year old fell asleep cuddling her dog who had also fallen asleep and I have this wonderful shot of them together.

The best tip I tip I can give someone thinking of getting photographs done with their newborn baby is to GET IT BOOKED IT EARLY!  I cannot urge you enough organise this while you are still pregnant. After the baby arrives life gets very hectic and tiring.  Not only that, but the first couple of weeks are crucial for getting some of the best images. Quite often I get 4 week old babies up to 6 month olds who just never got round to it before. We still get great shots but nothing beats those first 2 weeks when they are all so scrunched up and sleepy. Those make some of the most precious photos.

In the meantime, and until you book a session with me, here are my 5 Top Tips for taking photos of your children. Whether you take quick snaps with your phone or prefer to use a professional camera, children can be notoriously hard to photograph. From getting them to stand still and look natural to struggling to capture the moment in focus, many parents find it hard to get good pictures of their children! 



Do’s and Don’t When Taking Pictures of Your Children:


  • Do choose your time of day carefully 

Mornings are the best time of day to take photos – kids are generally brighter and happier. As the day wears on, they can get tired and more irritable. As soon as a toddler can walk, it is always great to shoot them outdoors but obviously this is dependent on the weather.

  • Don’t try and make your own children laugh

Fake smiles are the worst! To create a real, timeless image you are looking for authentic smiles! The best smiles are the really natural ones, especially when children are properly laughing. Sometimes asking a friend to make your child laugh works. 

  • Don’t force them to do anything or stand still for too long!

Kids become uncooperative when you want them to do something they don’t enjoy. If you let them be wild and carefree, you will capture natural expressions and wide smiles!

Jumping on the bed, dancing on the couch, shouting really loud… Anything that sounds slightly mischievous will make them happy!

  • Do give them something to do

Kids like something to do or hold. When you give them something else to focus on they will forget about the camera usually. If you are outside give them a kite to hold or if you are inside put some music on and let them dance. If it is something fun they are less likely to run away. 

  •  Do go for quantity as well as quality

Trying to capture that perfect shot with children can be tricky – especially if there are more than one child in the shot as trying to get them all to look good with their eyes open at the same time just isn’t easy. My solution is to take lots and lots of photos! I always start with the one or two kids that feel more happy and comfortable in front of the camera, then eventually persuade the shy ones to join. After some laughs and some silliness, most children forget they are having their photo taken.


If you would like a professional photoshoot for your children or the whole family, you can contact Rebecca by going to her website or click here to Email or call her on 07790005345.

My newborn baby shoots by Rebecca Fitch Photographing newborn babies is such a privilege and I absolutely love it. It takes so much patience but the reward is totally worth it - amazing portraits of that babies new life. My newborn photo shoot usually takes around 3 -4 hours, this allows time for feeding, nappy changes and getting the baby settled into a nice deep sleep. Every newborn shoot is different because every baby is completely different. I absolutely love not knowing how the shoot is going to go. My aim is to make your baby look perfect and I always let the baby be my inspiration. I believe the best images are unplanned and inspired by the uniqueness of each baby.  Whether it is cute dimples, big beautiful eyes, full lips, or a great head of hair, I try to highlight the beauty of the baby. At my studio in Gerrards Cross, South Bucks, I have blankets, wraps, hats, headbands, props and teeny weeny tiny teddies, it's so lovely to create these gorgeous images. The best shots often come from open minds and surprising moments.

When I first started out, these are the things I used to panic about -

will the baby sleep? (I now will photograph them awake as well as asleep - the baby is the boss)

will the baby wee or poop when we do the naked shots? (I only do the naked shots now when they are fast asleep) I always tell the parents never to worry about that though as they won't be the first or the last! 

will the parents be relaxed about me handling their precious little newborn baby? (After soothing their baby and holding their little one for the first 20 minutes of the session, they always relax and realise I am very experienced at what I do and also that I love love love babies)

Thank goodnesss I don't panic anymore!!!! 

A few top tips to make for a good shoot -

  • Always put on the "baby shusher" - constant white noise to calm the baby
  • Always use hand sanitiser in front of the parents before handling the baby
  • Always swaddle and wrap a fussy baby
  • Always have baby wipes to hand
  • Always have a plan B up your sleeve. (i.e you want to do bean bag shots but baby is not settled enough, make sure you have a basket or a prop also ready to shoot)
  • If siblings are involved always shoot them first
  • I always put a black and white camera buddy on my lens, this helps them to focus where the lens is if you get some magical awake shots.

The best newborn photographs are taken when a baby 7-14 days new, so I can’t stress enough how important it is to book your newborn photography session well in advance of your due date. By booking in early I can make sure I am available at the right time - those precious first few days. It’s essential for those cute, snuggly, sleepy newborn photos. However, I never turn away an older baby as some of these shots can be gorgeous as they open their eyes and look straight down the lens. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog about my newborn shoots xx

Here are some various photos from a recent gallery - I can't give her a name as the parents hadn't decided on the shoot day. She was a beautiful newborn baby at 13 days new. Mummy was also stunning.

Why it’s so important to always get a photo of mum

There are so many reasons mums don’t like to have their photo taken especially when they’ve just had their baby. They’ve obviously gained weight and at this moment are the most tired they’ve ever been.  Wearing an ugly nursing bra doesn’t make you feel very glamorous either. After a rough night of sleep, they are in my studio having their photo taken! But you don’t need to be perfect, you just need to show that amazing love and connection between you and your child. I have never had a mum come in the studio and not like their photo. The bond really does shine through.

Whenever I have a mum in the studio that is not keen to have her photo taken, I remind her that this photo is for her new baby or the photo is for her son or daughter. They will cherish this photo forever especially as we all get older and older. Today is truly a gift and who knows what happens tomorrow.  But having a memory of this precious time is invaluable.

I always remind the parents that by the time their son or daughter is old enough to remember their childhood, you will have more grey hair than you do now and you’ll be looking back at photos thinking how young you once looked. Your children will look at these photos and be amazed at how beautiful you were. It’s so easy to be over critical of yourself in photos, but your husband and your children see something different.

Writing this blog has reminded me that I too need to start having more photos with my children, it’s very easy as a photographer to end up always being the one behind the camera.  I rarely hand over my camera to someone else and jump in the shot. Time goes by so fast and your children grow up so quickly. Capture those memories now. Mothers day is approaching – Sunday March 26, make sure you make it your mission to get some photos with your mum! I will be doing some shoots especially for Mothers Day. My studio is in Gerrards Cross, South Bucks for anyone that's local or we can simply go to the nearest park.

Amazing mummy with her 3 boys!  


Gorgeous mummy with her newborn twin Beautiful family

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family a few weeks ago. They turned up very promptly to the studio in Gerrards Cross at 10am. Normally husbands and wives with one newborn baby turn up a bit late. This mum is a definite Superwoman though, coming all by herself with her older son in tow bang on 10am! The twin boys, Teddy and Tommy were 4 weeks old and mum was so very relaxed which obviously made my job much easier. A chilled mummy makes for chilled babies! They were so so good with no crying for most of the shoot and big brother Archie was amazing and confidently held his baby brothers. It was great to capture the family moment, as you can see mummy is super gorgeous. Really think the Black and White photo of her is stunning! I am glad we started with the family shots as a bit later on, one of the twins definitely had a bit of tummy trouble and was really unsettled so we called it a day. We did manage to get a few singular shots of each baby though. I really love photographing twins. I think of the twins with their bond as they grow up. It must be so special to be able have a picture together whilst still so teeny weeny. Maybe one day, I will be lucky enough to photograph triplets!!!

Do you ever look at a newborn baby and wonder what they will be like as an adult? Out of all the amazing shoots I have done so far in 2016. I have to say this little baby girl Gia was my absolute favourite newborn baby! So very cute when alert, she could focus her eyes on me and my camera and also smile! Such a little old soul and so beautiful. I got some amazing photos of her asleep and awake. I think it helped having my special camera buddy around my camera lens. It's a black and white animal that I can make squeak that attaches by elastic round the camera, it always helps me to get newborns looking directly at the camera. At this young age they can only see black and white. I put it in front of their face and babies always follow it with their eyes! It is also entertaining for their big brother or sister! I normally say "can you make the animal squeak?" "it only squeaks if you give me a smile!" or "it only squeaks if you give your brother or sister a kiss!" and then sometimes the animal just squeaks randomly which surprises us all and we get a very natural laugh! I decided to put some of baby Gias photos on a slideshow, just so you can appreciate this amazing baby with those incredible eyes! Do you ever look at a baby and wonder exactly what kind of a child they will be or perhaps even what they will be like as an adult? I definitely did with Gia!

He really was a dream baby. Mummy and Daddy loved all the pretty light blues, they looked amazing on his colouring and with all that hair! He slept really well for most of the session even though his gorgeous sister was quite noisy and enthusiastic! A really gorgeous family xx

Only a few weeks old! Really enjoying taking the family shots more and more, when you see a moment and you capture it, it's perfect for the parents to treasure forever. You can see this baby boy was absolutely adored! I have an incredibly busy time the next few weeks with new babies being born. It's an Easter baby boom! Can't wait xx

Family photos After doing a fabulous course by Rachel Vanoven, I have now mastered taking amazing family photos together with a Newborn. These can be very tricky for positioning of the baby and positioning of the lighting but I feel so much more confident and am now getting some great photos. These are memories which a client will treasure forever. I try and explain to the Mum and the Dad that their bodies are not on show, it's literally the top of your arms and your face and mainly the baby in full focus.

Cannot wait for my next baby to come in on Friday so I can do these amazing family shots.

Busy times! I love my studio in Gerrards Cross!


It's Christmas time approaching and I have been busy with Christmas card shoots! And suddenly all these new babies being born, it's good that it's so busy.

Really trying to get my name out there and what I do, so pleased that people are spreading the word. If you are happy with my services please write a review on net mums!!!

It's such a great sight to help mums find what they are looking for.

Very excited to be shooting an actor tomorrow Adam Sinclair! He is wanting a new headshot. I do love doing portrait photography, makes a real change from babies and kids x

Anyway, bye for now x

Rebecca Fitch and my photography update! Exciting times ahead! After having worked really hard to get my business up and running. I now have lots of bookings coming in from all different areas. Lots of local babies and children from the Gerrards Cross area. It's so special being able to photograph families, babies and children. I really do love my job and as some of you know I adore photographing newborns. The Christmas card slots are also being booked up. I mustn't forget to do my kids!!! I have a choice of 4 great backdrops. Easy to forget them when I'm busy photographing and editing other peoples kids!! I recently went to a zenfolio workshop to help me get to grips with my new website. I hope you can see that it's come a long way and really looking better every day. Apparently blogging is a very good way of getting your name out there and letting people know what you are up to. I am working with a great PR lady if you need anyone, she can help you promote your business brilliantly - Anyways that's it for now. Time to set up for a newborn baby boy and his 6 year old sister. Really looking forward to this shoot!!! I just bought some new props from Newborn baby posing ltd! So exciting!!

Excited about upcoming newborn shoots!! "Rebecca Fitch newborn photographer, Bucks." So many lovely props and wraps now in the studio! So excited to be using them in the next few weeks. So many gorgeous newborns to photograph. Must be a baby boom month.

Remember to book in anytime after your 20 week scan, I would hate to turn any newborns away. It is always best to photograph within the first 14 days. They are so curled up and sleepy then.

Rebecca Fitch, newborn and family photographer, Gerrards Cross, Bucks.
