"Best Photographer in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight" - Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021
Welcome! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Yasmin, and I am an award-winning Hampshire based newborn and baby photographer, specialising in capturing your baby's first year - all the way from bump to baby's first birthday! Most of my sessions take place in my beautiful, fully air-conditioned boutique photography studio in Aldershot but I also offer outdoor sessions in the Surrey/Hampshire and Berkshire area.
My aim is to create beautiful & classic portraits — capturing and transforming those special fleeting moments into memories for you and your family to cherish for a lifetime
About my photography
For as long as I can remember, I've been passionate about photography and since becoming a mum myself, one of the things that has been most important to me is capturing all of those milestones and special moments in their lives. Being able to preserve those memories for other parents is the reason why I created Starspeckled Hearts Photography
NEWBORN (0-8 weeks)
Welcoming your newborn baby into the family is a once in a lifetime experience, and those days are gone in a flash. As a photographer that specialises in newborn photography, I help my clients document and preserve that wonder and magic of the first few days with your brand new bundle of joy.
I create artistic portraits to capture those perfect newborn details that you will never want to forget - those tiny fingers wrapped around yours, their cute little button nose and that adorable stretch and yawn that is characteristic to your baby alone. Each and every baby is unique and I aim to capture this with my bespoke newborn sessions.
There is simply no substitute for professional studio portraits of this incredible time in your life. I would love to help you celebrate your love and legacy by creating some forever memories for your family to enjoy for generations to come.
LITTLE SMILER (2-5 months)
If you never got around to booking a newborn session, don't fret! My Little Smiler sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture their developing personality and this is a time so worth capturing.
Once your baby is over 8 weeks old, they will start spending more time awake and will be much more aware of their surroundings. Your baby will now have started to smile, coo and really make eye-contact, which makes for some incredible photos!
Whilst many photographers don't offer sessions for this age-range, they are personally one of my absolute favourites. I just love capturing those sweet smiles, chubby rolls, shy grins, grabbing their toes and adorable tummy time shots!
As with all of my sessions, each and every photoshoot is unique to my clients individual style and taste. Get in touch to start planning your Little Smiler session today!
LITTLE SITTER (6-11 months)
Once your baby has mastered sitting up on their own it wont be long before they're taking their very first steps! It is in this adorable in-between stage that we are able to capture some adorable sitting up portraits without baby being able to get up and run away from the camera!
Babies from 6-11 months are constantly learning new skills like clapping, blowing raspberries, playing peek-a-boo and of course - crawling! My sessions are based around play and I always get down on the floor with the little ones, singing silly songs and pulling funny faces to make them giggle! It is so much fun capturing babies at this stage as this is when they start to develop their own little quirks and their personality really starts to shine through. And this is a fleeting stage in your baby's first year that is so worth capturing!
My Little Sitter sessions are generally between 1-1.5 hours long and I provide all outfits and props. I generally use simple, soft toned backgrounds and beautiful decor of the very best quality to match.
If you are looking for a fun and relaxed way to capture some gorgeous keepsake images of your 6-11 month old baby, look no further!
There's something so special about capturing families and siblings together. I love being able to capture that unique bond whilst creating everlasting memories for families to treasure for generations to come.
As with all of my sessions, my family and sibling photoshoots are completely child-led. I create un-posed, natural images with simple and classic backdrops to keep you and your family in focus. My sessions are all bespoke and tailor made to suit you and your family's requirements, so please get in touch with any special requests you may have.
CAKE SMASH & SPLASH
What better way to celebrate your baby's first birthday than with a playful and messy Cake Smash & Splash session?
Birthday cake smash photoshoots are a unique and fun way to celebrate your baby’s first, second or third birthday - what will your baby do with their cake? Eat it, smash it or leave it? Whatever happens, it’s all led by your little one! Once they have finished with their cake, they can enjoy a warm bubble bath in my miniature roll-top bath - always a favourite with both baby and parents!
These sessions are a fun-filled sensory experience for your baby and make for some incredible photos for the whole family to look back on and cherish for years to come.
Simply choose your colour scheme or theme, choose an outfit for them to wear and watch your baby smash up a cake! Surely it doesn't get much better than that!
BUMP TO BABY
Maternity sessions are the perfect way to celebrate the beauty and miracle of pregnancy! My Bump to Baby package was designed to capture the perfect images of your growing bump with a beautiful maternity shoot, followed by a newborn shoot once your newborn has arrived.
Document the beginning of a lifetime of adventures with your growing family with a relaxed and natural photoshoot of your pregnancy. With my clean and simple photography style, your memories will last forever in a timeless way that you will treasure. Maternity sessions are typically shot during the 28-36 week mark of pregnancy, when your belly is almost full grown and the reality that your little one will soon be here is becoming more real with each passing day!
