Woppets & Poppets Photography was set up by myself, Melanie in 2013. I have always been passionate about capturing moments. Whether it be a case of the right place, right time or a perfectly set up scene. I spend my time with my camera in hand most days! I am a Luxury Newborn & Baby Photographer, specialising in baby’s first year.
I am a registered member of the Guild of Photographers and BANPAS (Baby And Newborn Photography Association) and have been trained in the safety of newborn photography by some of the country’s finest in their field, this is an absolute must for any professional in my field. Your baby’s safety is my first and main concern throughout the entire session and I will not put them into any positions that are unsafe or at risk.
My transition into Newborn, Baby and Children’s photography came quite simply from becoming a mother to a beautiful baby girl. I realised just how fast children grow and how precious every moment we spend with them is, even more so to keep these memories documented every step of the way.
The beauty of having a Newborn Shoot is that those first few days are a whirlwind of emotions, awe and fascination. I pride myself in bringing all of these elements together to provide you with a memory that will evoke the very same feelings of those special days every time you look back.
As a mother, I know how special these little people are, they are indeed our very own hearts walking around on this Earth! If you are anything like me, I spend my days reminiscing upon old photographs of my daughter when she sleeps, wondering how she has grown so quickly before my eyes and was her hair always that dark? When we become mothers we are taken upon a journey that indeed takes all of of our waking moments loving our children and running around after them that we sometimes forget to just stop and look in awe at we have created, how perfect they are and how we wish they could stay that small forever.
I would love for my daughter’s own children to one day spend those hours looking back of photographs of myself and their mum, for generations like we do now. My fear is the Smart Phone Generation never having 8×10 prints in their hands, never hanging a museum grade quality canvas adorning their living room, only simply having their phones and social media to look on. This is why I invite you back after your sessions to choose your images and how to display them, we are so lucky to have so many beautiful choices that receiving a disc of images just won’t cut it with me, I want to provide you with more than that, I want you to come away feeling that I have captured your child’s personality, frozen in time and never forgotten.
Photography is indeed a luxury item, but it’s definitely one to be invested in, don’t forget or miss those special milestones, let me have the honour of capturing that for you.
