Welcome back to Silver Ash Photography!
Following 9 months of maternity leave, I am thrilled to return to photography with fresh new branding, a new-look website, and updated services and pricing schemes.
Feel free to get in touch NOW for bookings from November 2011!

I’ve recently taken C’s newborn photos, but whilst I work on them I thought I would share some photos from her maternity session we did shortly before birth.
This is C, standing in front of the Tate Modern – a bi of a stylised photo for a change:
C was heavily pregnant and not able to travel far, so we agreed to meet up in central London and got some iconic backdrops for her session!
Here’s a selection of some of the others:
I’ll be posting her newborn photos soon, so keep a close eye open!
I know a few people have contacted me thinking I have gone out of business due to the site being so quiet. Far from it – I’m taking more photos than ever.. just not of any customers! The reason being is I’m actually taking a 9 month break because last month I delivered my precious baby boy!!
It was a high risk pregnancy and we weren’t sure how things were going to turn out, so it was kept very low key all round, hence no announcements on here that I was expecting. I started my maternity leave at 29 weeks at the end of February although I stopped doing sessions at the end of January as due to SPD (back and pelvis problems) I felt I was no longer able to give my best for customers. It took forever to get up off the floor after this shot with my children!
End of April, this little man was delivered via c-section:
Here he is at just four days old:
And here are a few more of him at 12 days old – firstly being prodded by his big sisters:
Trying out my new cocoons:
As you might expect, given I won’t really be working now until probably November, there will be a lot of this little fellow and his big sisters to come over the next few months!
I will probably start taking bookings for future work in late November (no guarantees for Christmas) by August/September time.
In the meantime I can do a few urgent sessions here and there in special circumstances and/or subject to quite a high minimum order (payable in advance) as I can only take a few limited days out of my maternity leave by law to work, so I wish to use them carefully which I am sure you can understand.
If any existing customers wish to order prints/products etc from a previous session, they can do so at any time – please contact me to reinstate your gallery.
I am looking forward to getting back to work though, and photographing all your amazing and gorgeous families again!
