Not long ago I met Ayush. I met him, because it was his 1st Birthday and it was time to celebrate.

Celebrate with a big cake! His mum went a bit crazy, as the cake was the size of Ayush!

The whole point was for Ayush to smash the cake. And he did, big time! I think this perfectly reflects his personality – sweet all over! Best cake smasher ever!

I haven’t laughed so much for a long time…

Have a look.

 

 

 

And the end result is something I love the most – tangible, timeless, beautiful album.

Hope the parents will love it too. And I really hope I will meet Ayush again soon, as he is such an adorable and happy little boy.

Before I met you Anaya…

A big part of what I am doing is meeting a lot of new people, a lot of new parents… They are entering an unknown world of new emotions and love, that they have never experienced before.

This time I met amazing, loving and kind couple, parents of a beautiful little girl Anaya.

And I think this poem, that I have came across somewhere on the internet, describes perfectly the overwhelming love parents feel when they meet their new baby…

Before I Knew Your Name

Before I knew your name,
Before I saw your chin and your nose,
Before I counted your fingers and toes,
I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
And ever prayer and wish came true.
I dreamed of you…
Before I knew your name.

 

 

 

And the end result of this beautiful session is this classic heirloom album…

I took the plunge – my 1st cake smash ever

I have always steered away from cake smash sessions… Not sure if it was the fear of a massive mess or the fear the whole thing to be a little bit ridiculous.

But I did it and it turned out to be ridiculously cute!

And I think it’s a fabulous way to celebrate first or even second birthday! Fun and relaxed.

Avani, who just turned one was the sweetest, cutest girl! She smiled beautifully, was happy and cheerful…

But not really interested in the cake… Look at it – yes. Walk around it – yes. Touch it – yes. But smash it? No 🙂

 

 

 

But apart from Avani trying to demolish the cake, we managed to take some beautiful portraits of Avanti on her own and with Mummy.

Let them be little.

Fill their hearts with laughter.

Help them grow wings.

Nurture their sense of wonder.

Inspire them to believe.

And love them like there is no tomorrow…

 

 

 

 

You are beautiful

Today’s post is addressed to all pregnant mums to remind them how beautiful they are and how short and quick this stage of their journey to motherhood really is. It’s only few months, but so important in every mom’s life and so fleeting.

Both of my pregnancies made me huge. I have put on nearly 5 stones each time, my legs and feet were swollen to the point where I couldn’t even wear flip flops. I have some photos from my first pregnancy, but being so self conscious the second time I have none. Not one. Nothing to look back on. Massive massive regret now. My huge, almost grotesque, swollen feet, something we could laugh at now, were not captured even on a single photo. There’s no bump to show my daughter and tell the story about her being in my tummy… How I wish I would have captured that beauty of being pregnant!!

I strongly believe that mums should have professional pregnancy photography. You might think that I only say it because I’m a photographer. But I am a mum too and now, from the time perspective, I know how important they are and what a big part of our life and our children’s life they are. Motherhood is quite remarkable and, I think, something that should be recorded and treasured. I promise I will make you feel beautiful and allow your radiance to shine through the photos.


About Maternity Mini Photo Session

The best time to photograph maternity pictures is between 28 to 34 weeks of pregnancy.

You want to be clearly showing but still feel comfortable enough to enjoy the session. If you book your session prior to this time frame, the belly may not be prominent enough.  If your session is later than this time frame, you may feel uncomfortable.

Please keep in mind that every woman and every pregnancy is different, so listening to your body is always best.

You ultimately choose to book your time when you feel it is best.

The father of your child and siblings are welcome and encouraged to join.

A mini photo session gives mums a chance to come for shorter session and still get beautiful photos of their pregnancies.

Session lasts about half an hour and as a final product you will receive 3 digital images. To book please follow the link http://bit.ly/lovelulamini

And this is what my lovely customers say about my maternity sessions:


‘Today I met a lovely lady & never thought I’d be comfortable or confident enough to do a bump shoot… but Sylwia made me feel beautiful & I really enjoyed myself! Thank you so much.’ – Lauren 


‘I had a pregnancy photo shoot with Sylwia a couple of months ago and loved every minute! I was a bit nervous before I turned up as I had never had a photo shoot before and especially not with a big bump! Sylwia made me feel so relaxed and welcome in her home which is why we got such lovely pictures which I will treasure forever!! Highly recommend! Thank you so much xx’ – Hayley


‘I never thought I’d have the courage to do a bump shot, but Sylwia was amazing. She put both my daughter and I at ease immediately and we had such a wonderful morning with her, thank you so much! x’ – Jenny

Jonathan Charles

It is a funny story.  I met Jonathan’s mum through one of our local Facebook groups and after weeks of online chatting we met for coffee. She was pregnant at that time and was thinking about newborn baby photography as it’s a beautiful way to preserve memories of the early days.

What a delight it was to me that she has chosen me to do it. Jonathan was only a couple of days old when he arrived at my home studio in Staines. Wrapped up warmly, fast asleep in his car seat.

He wasn’t very keen on sleeping, he would rather look around and drink milk, than pose for photos.

But it was absolutely fine with me, I got some beautiful awake shots. All my newborn baby sessions are baby led and we only do what the baby lets us to do. Every child is different and my goal is to capture them the way they are, either awake or asleep.

But guess what? Jonathan got so tired by the end that he fell asleep, deep sleep! So I managed to get some beautiful shots for the parents.

I absolutely loved the session as I could just smell the love in the air, not only the love for Jonathan, but also between the parents. Love birds!

And we stayed friends since then, so I really hope I will see Jonathan soon for his milestone session. I will for sure share some photos with you and show you how much he has grown!!

Hello and welcome

Posted on December 20, 2016 by Love Lula Photography under Our life

Hello and warm welcome to my blog.

My name is Sylwia and I’m the photographer at Love Lula Photography. I am a mum for 2 children, Leon, who turned 8 not long ago and Ella, 2.5 years old, sweetest girl in the world. Probably without them my love for photography wouldn’t be the same as they remind me that looking at the world through chilled eyes is so much fun and this is what I want my photography to capture.

On my blog I want to share with you not only my recent work but also my crazy family life. Show you the magic moments I find in my hectic days filled with school drop offs and pick-ups, nappy changes, washing and cooking. In this whole chaos I want to capture my children’s crazy laughs, heartwarming smiles, the loving look in my husband’s eyes – those moments of happiness in every day. Writing doesn’t come easy to me so luckily I can tell all those stories through my photography…
