Three lockdowns and numerous restrictions in place due to COVID-19 meant that what was supposed to be a newborn photo session with baby Teddy at the end of 2020, turned into a family session when Teddy turned 6 months old. And while initially I was sad I wasn't going to photograph him when he was only a few weeks old, I was very glad to see how big he's gotten in that time and how happy he was during our time together. Just look at his smiling face! And the beautiful big brown eyes! I was worried he would be shy towards me, since he probably didn't get to see many strangers because of the mentioned lockdowns (hello, lockdown babies), but he was so open and gave me the most beautiful expressions. Plus it was beyond wonderful to see how besotted the parents were with their baby boy. Safe to say, first photo session after lockdown 3.0 was a success!


Straightaway, Alina made us feel very comfortable. Her portfolio was what attracted us to her in the first place and she didn’t let us down. Alina was really flexible on the day as we have a 6 month year old to contend with and she allowed time for the required naps . She is very friendly , approachable and professional . Once we received the photos , we were absolutely chuffed with them as they were amazing and of outstanding quality . We highly recommend Alina to anyone wanting to have an intimate family photo shoot and we will be using her again for all of our son’s birthdays and special occasions going forward.
