Review // A Family Photo Shoot with Albert + Me

Kate, who is currently on maternity leave from her job in journalism, has always loved taking photos, but since becoming a Mama she has a new focus in life, and she loves nothing more than capturing the new man in her life on camera.

This re-discovered passion for photography has spurred her on to set up her own photography business Albert + Me (named after her super gorgeous little man), and we were very honoured to have her capture the children in a photo shoot last week.

I first met Kate online when I was pregnant with H-Bear, and I’ve been following her journey through pregnancy and into Motherhood ever since. Kate is based in East Yorkshire, and as it turns out, only lives a few miles away from us!

I’m a huge fan of natural light photography and capturing children candidly, which is what Kate specialises in, so I was very excited for the shoot and to see the resulting photos!

Kate was truly wonderful with both children; chatting easily to them and asking Busby lots of questions. As the weather was looking slightly dubious, we decided to forgo visiting our local green space, and began the shoot by taking photos inside the house (in our family room) while the children played with Duplo, with a few reminders from me to Busby to “share”!albert and me photography

Thankfully the predicted rain didn’t make an appearance, so we decided to head out into the very windy garden to have a play. Busby took her “binoculars” out with her (two toilet rolls) if you’re wondering why on earth she has those in her hands… Who needs toys, eh?!

We thoroughly enjoyed the shoot – especially H-Bear, who rather loves having his photo taken – and I was overjoyed with the resulting photos that popped into my inbox a few days later. In fact, I love them so much, I’m about to order a few of the photos in prints for our house.

The photos are honest, beautiful, and in exactly the style that I love; Kate has managed to capture beautiful photos of ordinary moments, in a way that we will treasure forever.

Albert + Me have a number of different photography packages available, from Blossoming Bump Sessions, to special Newborn Sessions, to fun Family Sessions (like ours). You can find more details of prices and packages here. Make, Do & Push! readers can also receive a 20% discount on all bookings made with Albert + Me until 31st March 2016 – just quote Make, Do & Push! when you book.

I would highly recommend Kate if you’re looking for a personable and friendly family photographer. Her talent is obvious from the gorgeous shots she has captured of the children, and I can’t wait to hang the photos from our walls.

    Beautiful photos of your beautiful children. I especially like the one of Busby with her hair blowing in the wind and H-Bear on the slide. Xx
