We love our studio! We are in an amazing converted grenade factory just off Twickenham Green in South-West London. We are surrounded by creative companies which makes for a great atmosphere. The studio is constantly evolving as we buy more props and backgrounds. We have designed the studio to be a relaxing environment for both babies and parents. In addition to the shooting space with all the hats, baskets and other accessories, we have an area where parents can relax. This is especially good during the newborn sessions where Mum and Dad can relax while their little one is looked after. The number of parents that have fallen asleep on there is huge!
The Shooting Space: This is where all the indoor images are captured. We have a great range of backgrounds as well as a huge selection of accessories such as the hats and blankets that you see in our newborn photography. There is plenty of natural light although we often use studio flash to ensure we produce consistent photographs.
Our Lounge / viewing Area: This is our dual purpose area. On shoot days, this is your home from home. Feel free to relax and enjoy the complimentary teas, coffees and biscuits! There is a big TV that serves as a distraction for the dads and the little ones that are not being photographed. During Newborn Shoots, mums often fall asleep while their baby is being photographed.
This is also the area where you will come back to see the images when they have been edited and choose your finished products. We have samples of the frames, canvases and other wall products as well as albums in the studio. We will show you the finished photographs on the screen and narrow them down to the images and products that are right for you.
The Newborn Baby Posing Beanbag: This is the most used prop in our photo studio. Its an amazingly versatile and safe area to photograph newborns. We use our selection of blankets and props such as hats to produce a range of finished images for you. Many of the newborn images where the baby is not in a basket or bucket are achieved on the beanbag.
Permanent Photography Backgrounds: We use a wide range of temporary backgrounds on every shoot. These include blankets, vinyl backgrounds as well as collages that we have made. These are very flexible and easy to introduce into any shoot. In addition, we have semi-permanent backgrounds. Currently, we have a dark wood and a light wood setup. These are fixed safely into position and used in many of the newborn and baby shoots that happen in the studio.
Newborn and Baby Props: This is just a small selection of the wide range of baby props that we have in the studio. We have many baskets and buckets, hats, nappy covers and other accessories. One of us in the studio is slightly obsessed with getting new props and rarely a week goes by when more are not introduced into the studio. We also often shoot with our clients own props so feel free to bring your own!
The Outside Space: Crane Mews is an amazing creative space. We have area around the studio to capture some great portraits. We are also a short walk to Twickenham Green and Crane Park as well as Thames riverside.
