Fun Jump on the Couch Kids Photo Shoot from Here Comes Baby UK Blog

Kids photo shoot by Janine Speake Photography
What a fun kids photo shoot we can share with you today! Usually jumping on the sofa is not allowed but Miss Scarlett & Miss Ruby were allowed just this once to go a little crazy. They enjoyed a jumping session on the sofa whilst mum, Janine Speake, a professional photographer snapped away and caught the fun and frolics! It’s looks like they has a ball!

Tell us about your fun and frolics kids photo shoot, Janine?

I am a mum of two very special gorgeous girls, Scarlett & Ruby and of course I am completely biased, but my two little girls are the most gorgeous wee ones ever!! They love having their photos taken…. ok I bribe them with Smarties, and lots of them! Here are a few photo’s from this weeks “we are allowed to jump on the sofa” photo shoot. Enjoy! We have just moved from Sydney and are now residing in the not so sunny London. But YAY for all the shopping! I love Photography. It’s what I do. It’s what I love.

Fall Photography Inspiration

Are you planning a fall photoshoot for your kiddos? Jade Anne Langton-Evans shared this fabulous woodsy session she photographed over the summer. I love the natural feel of it and thought it would be fun inspiration for fall as well.

Jade, her assistant, & her husband built the small fort with loose branches they collected from the forest floor. Isn’t this a cool idea? I’d love to try it on a chilly weekend with my own family. I have the perfect state park in mind already! To make the fort more visually interesting/cozy, the family filled it with blankets, books & and their family guitar.

The boys also LOVE bubble baths so they decided to use this vintage bath tin in the woods. It took over 30 HUGE bottles of hot water to fill it! They brought a bubble machine for even more fun, as well as an added visual element in the photos.

I think Jade captured their afternoon just beautifully, & in her own words:
“This is them completely, how they are at home together. I love capturing the true story of families and children. One of my favourite sessions to date! Such a pleasure.”

Here Comes Baby: Watch Me Grow!

Newborn baby photos of Phoenix by Shellie Wall

These baby photos capture the amazing journey baby Phoenix took from a sleepy newborn to celebrating her 1st birthday with a sugary sweet cake smash. Shellie Wall Photography had the honour to capture & watch Phoenix grow. My favourite photo of Phoenix is her in the cute baby top hat, it is simply adorable!

What is the recipe for a creating a great cake smash:

  • Take one super cute baby celebrating her/his 1st birthday
  • Add a giant sugary wonderland cupcake
  • Add simple & lovely accessories
  • Don’t forget a pinch of good lighting
  • Mix in with a talented baby photographer

Pregnancy Photo Journals

I’m a photo book enthusiast, so starting a fun pregnancy journal was high on my to do list when Mr. Floret Cadet and I first confirmed the news! If you follow any pregnancy or baby boards on Pinterest, you have likely seen some version of this awesome digital pregnancy photo journal, and I became obsessed with how I could make one like it without hiring a professional photographer / designer to create one.

It just so happens that the photographer who created these journals is Hanna Mac, and after being out on maternity leave herself, she is back and offering a template for purchase so you can have a DIY version of one of her gorgeous booksl! Even cooler, you can buy cute individual images to accompany some of the pages and mix it up if you don’t want to include a bump photo each and every week. You purchase the template for $50 in either PSD or JPG format, and then print your finished book through a service like Shutterfly, or Hanna also has a special recommended printer who she introduces you to upon purchase.

I missed the boat on this template (I think it was made available just days after I looked and then moved on), but luckily for me, she also has three gorgeous baby book templates available – in chalkboard, pennant and chevron styles.  I will definitely be using one of these to document our baby’s first year! Here are some of those designs- what’s your favorite? I think I’m leaning towards the chalkboard for now.

Maternity Photography

Hi I’m Jade from Jade Langton Evans Photography! and here’s a little bit about what I do and how I am inspired to create art!

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. A woman who glows with beauty and radiance with a new life growing inside her is a wonderful miracle, I really believe it should be celebrated and captured. Your birth story is such an exciting time and part of your journey in your life experience. I love working with mummies to be and photographing you and your bump looking fabulous. I always involve the father to be and if you have children already it’s lovely to have them a part of this special time too.

Together you and I discuss ideas to make a beautiful experience and celebrate your story through photography. I work with you to design a theme for your session that will tell YOUR story through imagery in a beautiful and unique way that is personal to you!

It normally relates to bringing those little things to life that become your family time, the quirkier and sillier always better! things can include passions, collections, special games or momentos such as family herilooms Or a special childrens book. Each session is completely different and bespoke and unique to you.

My love for the ourdoors inspires me to find the perfect location for the session and I work mainly on location outside and make use of some of the beautiful natural places around us, sometimes places that go unmissed make amazing backdrops for natural photographs. Natural, earthy type places are stunning for maternity sessions. A mother apart of nature, long grass, pretty fields of flowers, beachy type areas, drift wood and rusticness are always things I look for to make the perfect session. I can also photograph your story in the comfort of your own home if you prefer to. I am a big lover of using only the natural light that is available to me. It gives your images a beautiful and fresh feel to them.

I am very passionate about the images I create with you. A session with me really just requires you to be yourself and not worry about anything else. I am there to photograph you as you are, nothing is more important to me than capturing the true story.

We also offer a professional bump painting service which can be apart of your session where we can bring in a fun theme to your session.

There is no end to the magic we can create together! Maternity sessions normally take place around 7 months but this is a guide as each woman varies differently.

I also specialise in newborn, child and family photography too. Most clients who book maternity always have a newborn session too and these take place when the baby is under 2 weeks old.

I am based in shropshire and I have clients come to me from all over the country, I can also travel too. I have had customers book from as far as Russia!

I would love to hear from you!

You can find me HERE (this is where I add my recent work)

Grey & Yellow Nursery


With a design plan in mind, Erin set out to create a sweet grey & yellow nursery for her baby boy…









Grey is always a favorite of mine for nurseries. It goes with everything and this fun yellow is just perfect! The thing that stood out right away was the beautiful yellow DIY dresser which was a $50 craigslist find! See the transformation here. I also LOVE her fabric choices for the DIY window cornicers, crib skirt, and matching footstool. All of the yellows work so well together and the mix of patterns add so much depth to the room. The best part is that she spent a grand total of $844.99– Well done!!

Violet’s One Year Photos: Sneak Peek

Violet’s one year photos went really well! She got a little fussy due to the heat (who knew it would be upper eighties/low nineties in mid-May!? But overall the shoot went great. Megyn Barroner was amazing to work with – she was incredibly patient and worked really hard to get some beautiful photos. Thank you so much Megyn!

I’m thinking of having one photo enlarged and displaying it in one of the main living spaces of our house. You can check out my inspiration photos here. What do you think of displaying family photos?

Stay tuned for more photos from the shoot and happy Friday!

Baby Photoshoot






i haven’t featured a baby photographer or stylist for a LONG time, so when i received these beautiful baby photos from Desiree last week i was really excited to share with you. her email gives a little background:

Dear Spearmint Baby,
I’m a huge fan of your blog and thought I would share some recent photos taken of my new baby, Miles Warren Pillsbury. I’m a graphic designer and had a ball when my baby became the subject of my design. I art directed this photo shoot taken by the talented photographer Allen Clark.

I had a very difficult pregnancy and delivered a month early with preeclampsia. I had a very healthy 7lb baby boy on December 10 after 34 hours of labor. Girl power! Miles has changed my life forever and I love that he’s my new creative muse.

Much love to you Spearmint Baby, keep up the great work. You inspire all of us creative mommies out there.
Desiree

i love how simple and natural these photos feel. my favorite pic is the 1st one – i also love Mommy kissing Baby’s hand! but aren’t they all beautiful?

are you having newborn photos taken? what kind of “feel” are you going for?

Featured Photographer – Innocent Eyes Photography

Spearmint Baby would like to introduce you to Innocent Eyes Photography.

When their first son Lawson was born in August 2008, professional photographer Justin Aveling and his wife Caryn, embarked on a new creative concept in the shape of Innocent Eyes Photography.

Having worked as a freelance photographer in the fashion and commercial arenas for over 10 years, Innocent Eyes Photography has been a natural progression in Justin’s career to merge his love of art and photography with the inspired experience of being a dad and creating a family.

“Both Caryn and I appreciate that we will have so many beautiful memories of Lawson as his little life progresses, and we wanted other families to have the same experience we have. Baby portraits are something that many new parents talk about but rarely get around to doing. This special time in a child’s life lasts but a few months and then they are not such little babies anymore. You can never get this time back and it is important that you and your baby have some truly memorable images that will serve as family heirlooms in years to come”.

Catering mainly to Eastern Sydney, Innocent Eyes Photography is the perfect way for families to capture the individual personality and charm of their children in a keepsake to treasure forever.

Tina Ryan, Life Is A Highway

FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER

Spearmint Baby would like to introduce you to Tina Ryan of Life Is A Highway Photography. Tina is a New Jersey based Photographer specializing in on-location, natural light lifestyle portraiture of children, families, babies, maternity and special events

In Tina’s words… I started Life Is A Highway Photography 2 years ago and it is my passion. I am based out of NJ and I love photos that capture the secret whisper between a daughter and mom, the pucker of the little lips of a newborn’s mouth, the look of adoration in a husband’s eyes, and the crinkle of a 3 year old’s nose while in a fit of laughter. These are the memories, the images in our minds, that we treasure most. My goal is to find that balance between taking the traditional photos that we all like to have and capturing images that evoke a true sense of who we are and what we are about at that moment.
