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.

See this gorgeous little girl?
Welcome to the world, baby Emily!
You may remember that I photographed her mother just a few weeks before her birth:
And so here’s the new family!
Emily was a star – she stayed awake for some great shots:
And asleep for many more:
We got some great photos as a result!
Something I now offer to every customer is a storyboard/collage in amongst their images. This one from this session is a particular favourite of mine:
Congratulations again to C and M on your gorgeous little girl!!
Great news here at Silver Ash Photography! It’s not even December and I’m already pretty close to fully booked before Christmas since opening the books again a few weeks ago – business is going very well, and I’ve already done one session. All the sessions are outdoors ones, which just proves that demand for natural backdrops for cherished family portraits is in no danger of going away even in the winter time.
As a result, I’ve made the decision to NOT offer a studio day this side of Christmas as there simply isn’t time in amongst all my other bookings! I will revisit this idea next year at some point, although I have to say I am enjoying all the outdoor sessions. Autumn is ending, although there are still some leaves on the floor, making for some really special photos.
I’ve also made the decision to shrink my area of coverage as it’s clear I can get enough sessions in my local area to fill my books and I’ll certainly not miss travelling 1-2 hours up the motorway for a session! So my area now covers South East London (no mini sessions outside of this area) and South and most parts of East London and some parts of Kent and Essex for full sessions/newborns. I’ll make an exception for multiple sessions booked on the same day if you’re 1-2 hours away, so if you can find a friend who also wants a session near to you, that could work.
If you want to make a booking, I’d recommend doing so very soon as I have one, maybe two slots left for Christmas delivery.
I can always squeeze in newborns, but can’t guarantee Christmas delivery at this point as they’ll have to take priority behind those I have promised Christmas delivery for, although of course I will do my best. I do have some space for some non-Christmas delivery sessions after the 11th December and of course there is plenty of availability in the new year at this moment in time.
If you’re a previous customer and would like to order any products for Christmas, let me know and I’ll rehost your gallery for you – I may even be able to offer you some special offers! I’ve upgraded and updated the ordering gallery so it is even smarter and easier to use these days.
In other news, I’ve added new posts describing how to book a session, and answering questions about what to wear and other questions. I’ve also made a change to the way I handle sneak peeks. I used to offer them not long after the session but before the full gallery was available to the customer. These days I show them AFTER the client has ordered, so they get the full impact of seeing their photos for the first time all at once.
I’m looking forward to sharing my first post-maternity-leave sneak peek before too long so keep a close eye open! In the meantime, here are a few photos taken this autumn of my own family (plus a few from the obligatory fireworks at this time of year!) to share:

Looking forward to hearing from you all, and meeting some of you for your booked sessions!
