For the family that REALLY needed a Special Fine Art Portrait Photography Session!

There is quite the story attached to this Special Fine Art Portrait Photography shoot for a family that nearly lost everything!

Bobby and Lauren had already booked us for a Newborn session for their first baby, however baby Paisley decided to arrive 3 weeks early at 07:52am on the 16th September 2017, weighing just 5lbs. 10 minutes later after making sure Lauren & the baby were all ok and settled, Bobby picked up his phone to take the first pictures of their new born baby boy. However, before he had a chance, his phone rang… and it was from his neighbour, which was strange, as they only ever call in case of an emergency. Firstly, the neighbour asked if they were safe, and assuming they were asking about the baby, Bobby explained that the baby had been born at the hospital and everyone was safe and well.

This is when things got real; not that having a baby three weeks premature isn’t real enough! Bobby’s neighbour told him to check the news about their apartment…

Fire!

After hanging up the phone he immediately went online to check…

Even though he had been a dad for just a few minutes; and not even had time to take a picture of his son, the first pictures that greeted him saw were of his home and apartment block being engulfed in fire!

Given that they had just been through a traumatic premature birth, Bobby decided that it probably wasn’t the best time to tell Lauren that their home was being destroyed by fire! But despite remaining totally calm and collected (not sure how considering he didn’t know if they had anywhere to live) after a few hours passed, Lauren could tell that there was something wrong, so he had to tell her. So, there they were in hospital trying to enjoy their first few hours of being new parents, but at the same time not knowing if that had a home to go to.

Bobby did an amazing job keeping Lauren comfortable and was determined to make sure that their special day was not completely ruined. He said to Me “I knew there was nothing I could do to change it, so I kept my mind on what I could do; and that was to be focussed on keeping my family safe and happy”.

Fire at Holborough Lakes

Moving forward

A week after the fire they were discharged from hospital after some minor complications from Paisley being born early; and their first night away from the hospital was in a hotel room. Many of the other residents of Holborough Lakes who had been effected were also staying at the same hotel. As as Bobby, Lauren and Paisley walked into the hotel lobby, the neighbours and other residents gave them a big round of applause, as well as finally getting to meet baby Paisley! Bobby & Lauren have been utterly overwhelmed with the amount of support from the residents including the donations at the baby crèche, nappy’s and wipes. One resident was even kind enough to look after Paisleys pram which Bobby had managed to salvage from the garage until they have somewhere to keep it themselves.

So, welcome to world baby Paisley; although you have no idea what’s been happening these past few months, you have had so much love and support from your extremely brave and loving family, friends and the residents of Holborough Lakes

Photography!

… and to Bobby and Lauren; the least I can do is to ensure you have some wonderful framed Fine Art Portrait Photography to decorate your walls when you finally get to go home!

WHAT YOU SAY…

“Graham was a brilliant photographer and was great with Freya. To begin with she wasn’t very happy with having her photos taken but Graham was great with her and managed to entertain her which ended up us getting some brilliant and beautiful photos. Would definitely recommend Graham and cannot wait to have our next session with him. Genuinely really lovely guy.”

Laura Conlon

“Absolutely outstanding. Graham took photos of our little Ella at two weeks and the results have been brilliant. Graham was so professional, friendly, and great with Ella. He managed to keep Ella at ease throughout and even gave us a couple of tips to help with the sleepless nights. We could not be any happier with the service and photos that we received. Would not hesitate in recommending Graham to take photos of your newborn and we look forward to returning to Graham throughout the years for him to catch moments of Ella growing up. “

“Graham took beautiful pictures of my two children he captured them looking very natural, happy and content. The atmosphere was relaxed at his studio and the children were happy to have there photos taken which is shown in the lovely pictures. We throughly enjoyed our morning with Graham and would recommend him to our friends and family.”

Melanie (from Welling, Kent)

“Such amazing photos!!

Graham took photos to celebrate our baby boy’s first birthday – a mixture of family ones of the three of us together, baby on his own and baby doing a cake smash which was just fab!! Graham provides such a different take on family photos from the usual shots you always see around and it has given something very personal to us. I would highly recommend Graham.”

“Graham came and did a photo shoot yesterday for me my partner and our 6 month old bundle of joy in our home in Kent. Having just seen the photos I can say he has done a wonderful job, capturing our son’s character and our sense of loving family in his shot. Graham was a true professional allowing our son to play, sleep and rest when he needed to, not forcing him to do any poses or positions he didn’t want but capturing the moments we see everyday but in a way I have never seen before. I’ve just looked at his wedding photos and they are truly amazing, we will certainly be asking him back for our wedding”

“I have had both a kids only outdoor photo shoot taken by Graham and an indoor one with my son and I, and I can strongly recommend him for both. He is extremely patient and listens to what you want, producing amazing photographs of scenes I didn’t even see myself. Graham is very professional and doesn’t try to act like the goofy clown (as some other photographers I have been to do), the photographs as a result are photographs to cherish where the kids look relaxed and happy. I also requested some editing to colours be carried out, Graham did this for me and produced several examples in very quick time indeed. You wont be dissappointed…”

“If you are looking for a photographer to take beautiful shots of your children, then Graham’s your man! He captured beautiful shots of our children in his studio and in Oxleas woods too. My children felt at ease with him and I found him to be easy to talk to; and I pre warned him that my son may not play ball, but thankfully Graham took him under his wing and made him feel comfortable. We were lucky to find a great family portrait photographer so close to our home in Bexley borough. He is very talented and would definitely use him in the future. Highly recommend!”

“From the moment myself & my partner arrived at the studio with our new born baby boy, Graham was very welcoming and understood exactly what kind of pictures we wanted. He understood our circumstances as we both were not used to being infront of a camera but put us both at ease and helped us relax into the session. He made sure that the studio was at adequate temperature for our baby who was the star of the show and was very good at calming him down by using some old tricks that he previously used on his family when they were that age. I felt assured that Graham knew what he was doing and acted professional throughout the entire session. He politely offered us drinks and made sure we took any breaks if needed to, worked at our pace and did not rush the session at all. Our photographs came out incredible and we were really shocked at the quality and hard work Graham put into each photograph. Graham really did provide a personalised experience which we will always remember and we look forward to working with him in the future. I cannot recommend Graham Baker Photography enough and the photo shoot was worth every penny.”

I chose Graham after looking at his gallery, his work looks very professional but still natural. He made us feel really comfortable and put us at ease. It’s a lovely local studio and he didn’t make us feel rushed even when the little one wasn’t cooperating, he was really patient with our baby. He made us feel very safe and relaxed and the photographs really show that, I’m so happy with them. I can’t wait to see what my wedding photos turn out like. I now know we are in safe hands and he is worth every penny.

“Graham is an amazing photographer, he immediately put us at ease, and went above and beyond our expectations. Graham is also amazing with babies and extremely patient, he tailored the session to our personalities which was exactly what we wanted. Our photographs are absolutely amazing and worth every penny, will be looking forward to booking another session in the future and couldn’t recommend graham enough.”

“Graham is an excellent photographer, we visited him recently for some children’s fine art styled portraits. We were very pleased with the results, highly recommend!”

“Truly a wonderful experience having Graham, such a professional photographer, come to our home and work exceptionally hard to capture amazing photos of our baby boy. As I had moved from south east London to Kent I was very pleased he could accommodate us and still come to our family home for the shoot. I’ve seen the sneak peak and I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for the personal shots I know will have the same stunning style. Thanks so much for capturing my son’s 6 month birthday for us to remember forever xxx”

“So impressed with the service from graham baker truly deserves a 5 star rating! Such a talented portrait and fine art photographer who truly captures some fantastic images creating a natural lifestyle feel to his photographs. Graham photographed our wedding in 2015, producing some amazing shots, we were so pleased with the results we have since returned for a maternity Bare the bump shoot as well as our new born baby shoot!! Very friendly and professional able to make you feel relaxed and comfortable In Front of the camera! Based in welling/Bexley area with a great onsite studio space. Highly recommend and will be back for all our photography needs!”

“Have recently had a maternity shoot (bare the bump) with Graham Baker photography at his purpose built studio in welling/bexley area and was very impressed with how friendly he was and how comfortable he made me feel throughout the shoot! Very professional and trustworthy and the images were stunning! We love the portrait / lifestyle feel to the images that Graham produced and have since returned with our beautiful baby girl for a baby new born shoot! We are very excited to see the results and will be back to capture more key milestones in our daughters life! We wouldn’t dream of booking with anyone else! Would highly recommend.”

“We found Graham through Google. He was prompt to respond to emails and flexible with the services on offer, to accommodate what we were looking for. We are very happy with the quality of the photos, as well as the service that we received. Payment was quick and easy. We would definitely recommend Graham to our friends.”

“Graham worked with our family to produce a frankly stunning selection of photographs. Not only did he manage to get the best shots out of everyone, he also managed to capture the personality of each family member as well as the overall family dynamic. Considering most of the family previously considered themselves non-photogenic, this was no mean feat! He showed great depth of knowledge, considerable skill, and a very easy going style. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any personal photography needs, and I am looking forward to working with him on commercial photographs in the future”

“Graham is a trustworthy, dependable photographer who listened to what I needed & delivered exceptional quality. He really helped us relax into the session & was able to put us at ease, producing some wonderful photos which are worth every penny. Graham has been there to capture all of our major life events so far from our wedding to the first year of our children’s lives & family photo shoots. It is fantastic to be able to return to Graham each time & this is only possible due to his skill & ability to adapt to different situations from controlling a wedding crowd to his patients with children. Each time he has provided us with what we wanted. We would thoroughly recommend Graham’s services. He provides a truly personalised experience.”
