It’s the blonde curls for me. 💁🏼‍♀️

I love photographing little ones who are similar ages to my own children.

It’s lovely to see so many different little personalities!

Some babes can’t wait to get into the water (see last photo)… and that is exactly what both of my boys would do too!!

Super sweet session with this little family. 🧡

I love introducing people who live locally to my favourite little spot of serenity!

The light here at sunset is always beautiful and no two sessions are ever the same. 💫

I love it when a family photo session turns out like this. 🧡
High energy, lots of laughs… and one twin ended up face planting the water!!

I’ve been quiet on here recently but busy behind the scenes with lots of editing, creating albums and framed artwork. Oh and looking after my own rather demanding little ones!

Will share some more snippets of what I’ve been working soon x

Have you ever wondered if you should include your dog/pet in your family photos?

For many families a dog is their first child, and a VIP member of the family…

So it’s a yes from me!!

I had to share this cute little moment as it makes me smile 🐶

Another gorgeous festive family session, and this one was super special as it was also their littlest man’s first birthday!!

I just love all that wonderful light falling behind them… feels like a summer wonderland!! ✨

Who needs fake snow when you have golden sunlit palm trees??

@bubsandreviews Bubs And Reviews


Seriously, could Christmas get any cuter??

This natural festive set up and the early morning light was magical... ✨

Beauties!! @isabellegrace


Well that was fun!! On Saturday morning was the first day of Christmas mini sessions. I am really happy with how the set up looked - nice and natural, and not overly posed which suits my style. The cute festive props were also a big hit.

So many beautiful family moments captured, including this one of baby’s first Christmas. ✨

I’ll post some more beauties from Saturday very soon! X

Christmas Minis photos with my minis!!

Tested out the latest festive set design at a new outdoor location… what do you think?

Photographing my own children is 1,000 times harder than taking photos of other people’s kids. We had a good 10 minutes of cooperation though before Jude had a meltdown and Finny took all his clothes off!!! Also Jude had a bruise on his head which needed editing out of every photo. Haha, at least the photos turned out well.

If you haven’t booked your Christmas photos yet I have a very limited number of spots left now - message me if you want to snap one up! x


Throwback to the last minis… short, sweet and a lot of fun!

With so many families physically disconnected right now, there is immense power in photographs. Especially printed photographs that can be held and displayed.

Do you have grandparents or other family members overseas?

I do, and they have never even met our 18 month old yet. I know we are definitely not the only ones, but it’s heartbreaking that they can only see each other through a screen.

Can you guess what they will be getting for Christmas?? 👀


The prize includes your Christmas mini photo shoot, 5 digital images AND a set of 3x custom tree ornaments (double sided photo ceramic discs)… 🎄

To enter simply:
🤶🏻 Comment who would love to receive one of your photo ornaments for their Christmas tree?
🤶🏻 Tag a friend (one tag = one entry)
🤶🏻 Share this post to your stories and tag Natalie Forsdike Photography Insta page

Good luck!!! The winner will be announced on Monday night xx

Extra bonus - Everyone who enters and then goes on to book Christmas Minis will receive two additional digital files 🌟


Thank you to everyone who has booked Christmas minis so far.

With these sessions you can also get your annual photo Christmas cards, custom tree ornaments and personalised calendars for 2022!

“It gets easier”

Three lovely ladies have said this to me in the past week whilst out with the kids… anyone else?? 😂


Hold your babies close mamas… they don’t stay small forever. 💛

I’m reading a parenting book at the moment called Mothering Boys by Maggie Dent, and she says a line which really made me think… it referred to the ‘good old days’ when a kiss from mummy made everything better.

Gosh it really made me realise that one day my kids won’t need or want a kiss from mummy anymore.

So until then I’ll give ALL of the kisses required!!! 😘


Here you will find all information on the CHRISTMAS MINI PHOTOS - dates, times, location, package, etc…

Very limited sessions available so get in quick!

You can also add on any extras including photo Christmas cards, custom Christmas tree ornaments, and personalised 2022 calendars. Nice and easy gifts!!

Another sneaky peek at a recent Father’s Day session… lovely little daddy daughter moment right there!! ✨

CHRISTMAS MINIS are going live to the vip Facebook group TONIGHT!! ✨

Make sure you are in the group to get first your first choice of preferred date and time. On Monday night the bookings will be opened up to everyone else.

I’ll post a screenshot of the page to my stories now! 🤶


Happy Friday people! Who’s got plans this weekend?
Here’s a sneak peak at another of the Father’s Day sessions. My second time photographing this family and their latest shoot was also on baby Frankie’s 7 month old birthday! So many smiles ✨

@stephanievolep @secrethorse1


He’s got the whole world in his hands.

Even in the two short weeks between a newborn photo session and then going back to present the images, these little bubbas grow so much!!

Newborns are best photographed within the first two weeks, and I’d advise you to book around 3 months in advance to secure your date.

Some people prefer newborns being asleep for their newborn photos, but personally I think the eyes open / eye contact shows personality and is a beautiful connection. More than worthy of documenting!

And often the awake shots are preferred over the sleeping ones…

What do you think?? 🤩


SPECIAL OFFER ✨ For all my pregnant mummies, I’ve got something you’re going to love… when you book your newborn session you will also receive a complementary maternity shoot!!

Limited offer for the first 10 people, so if this deal is applicable to you then get in quick!

Email me to secure your free maternity session.

Share with / tag any friends who need to see this ✨

Bump and feeding friendly client wardrobe is also available to wear for your photo shoots.


Well if this photo is anything to go by these boys are very happy with their baby sister!!

I’m excited to see this image as custom wall art for their family photo gallery. Printed on aluminium with a floating oak frame to match their current style.

If you wish to display your family portraits at home, however big or small, then please drop me message!


I got you babe. 💛


Who is excited for Father’s Day tomorrow? 🙋🏼‍♀️

My 4 year old is… he woke me up at 5am this morning demanding we give daddy his picture and chocolates ‘right now’ because he wanted to eat some!!

Anyone else’s child rubbish at keeping presents a secret??

Details baby! These teeny tiny newborn details are everything.

Their fine baby hairs, the way they lay, their little knee wrinkles (omg how cute are the knee wrinkles?!)

A single photo can evoke the most powerful memories.

Because one day you’ll simply forget all of these precious details. Unless you have the photos to remember of course.

Nothing beats capturing and keeping these precious memories safe for ever!


What I’ve found over the years of photographing families is this - it’s almost always the Mums who book family photos, and the Dads come along (usually after some persuasion 😂)… but then after seeing their photos it’s the Dads who surprise themselves and appreciate their photos the most!!

There’s my little insight of the day. ✨

The Fathers Day promotion is available now if you haven’t purchased something already - just visit the website and drop me an email to book!


The look of love.

This photo was taken right at the end of our in-home newborn & family session… when the two older siblings had disappeared, leaving Mum and Dad to have a lovely little moment alone to soak up their new baby.

All the feels right here!
