If you're looking for a great newborn, kids or family photographer to take your photos this year then look no further! Emily Gray Photography takes the best shots and even better she is offering Finlay Fox readers 15% off all full shoots (mini shoots are excluded). We all take a lot of photos on our phones these days but sometimes it's so nice to have some professional images taken and printed too.
She is based in London but will travel further afield on request. Shoots take 3 hours and are designed to be as relaxing as possible, taking into consideration the demands that kids can have in this time (she is a mum of 2 girls herself so can relate!). I think her photos really show children and families completely relaxed and at ease, a necessity to a great picture and my absolute favourite is this spaghetti shot...Cheese!
Charlotte Emily has also more recently been involved in charity photoshoots, the first of which we were lucky enough to be involved in back in October, at Dalston Curve Garden. Each family had a 5 minute slot so it was an impressive turnaround getting through a full day of families. She raised an incredible £3200 and all proceeds went to Save the Children's Syrian refugee fund. I think you'll agree the unique flower backdrop she used was incredible!! This was our picture (my baby bump looks so small then!)...
Her next London charity shoot will be in early Spring (final date and location TBC), so images will be great for Mothering Sunday. The charity this year is WaterAid and their Deliver Life campaign. Every minute a newborn baby dies from infection caused by a lack of sterile water and an unclean environment and they are aiming to reach 130,000 mums and their families with safe water. If you'd like to find out more head to their website or check out photos from Jenny Lewis, who recently travelled there to photograph the mums and their newborns.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reserve a space on the charity shoot. I really recommend it and it will be nice to have a photo of the four of us once new baby arrives. We look forward to seeing what the new backdrop will be.
Here are a few more of her images to entice you. At the moment her work spans family photography, kids fashion, head shots and working with new businesses... Recently working with the brilliant Mothers Meetings, Mother Pukka, Motherland Magazine, Smallish Magazine, London School of Hypnobirthing/The Yes Mum Mum, Baily Bags, TIBA + MARL, Scout and Co Kids, Mini Magpie, PJ Mamma, Don't Buy Her Flowers, All by Mama and a couple of non-kid companies Joe's Tea Company and Gresford + Gresford.
