Hemmings Family . 1st Birthday Celebration . July 2021

I photographed Beatrix when she was just a wee newborn and I was delighted to be asked back to photograph her first birthday! The family celebrated in a park with her Grandparents and Auntie & Uncle & cousin! It was wonderful to capture all the individual families and also photograph them all together! It was really fun to photograph the cousins interacting with each other too! When there are multiple families I  suggest booking a Full Family Session rather than a ‘mini’ so that each family can have their own photographs together as well as the larger group! These guys got lots of updated family portraits as well as some natural ones of the family & kids celebrating together! My family sessions always have this balance of organised portraits and much more informal, natural shots so that you get a lovely mix in your gallery!

why i love what i do

Since I welcoming my son into the world back in December '17 I have come to appreciate how time just seems to disappear around children and how fast little ones can change! I also found out how difficult it was to get a fully family photograph & how rare it was to have both me & my husband in them! Photographing natural connections between families is so important because these photographs will be capturing a moment in time that can be looked back on and treasured forever ... with you all included!


Quite possibly the most thoughtful & easiest present you'll ever buy! They are a great way of marking a friend's special birthday, celebrating the arrival of a new baby or an excellent present to say thank you to the grandparents!

"Suzanne was great at putting both me and my husband at ease (we’re not the best at photos!) and generating lots of laughs and giggles from our 19 month old son. Lots of fun and very relaxed, photos amazing."
