What a week it has been! I have spent a good 7 hours on the phone with 8 people from Adobe (my editing program) and Apple trying to find a solution and a fix to my editing program. I keep getting an error when trying to export the photos! I have posted on photography groups and have been googling non stop. I think I may have figured out the problem, no thanks to the "experts", but we shall see! It has randomly worked on some photos but never on my Christmas photos.

So here goes!! How much fun are these going to be?! Not yet booked? Click here to get your date and time

As long as children can sit they can attend. Even with the baking set! Don't worry safety is ALWAYS number one priority so I have it covered if they can't stand behind the table. Feel free to message if you'd like to ask any questions before booking. https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/contact.html

I have in my contract about sharing photos. It helps to others to see different sets. This set was something completely new. Ezekiel's dad messaged to tell me his ideas and then I put it all together. I'm so pleased how it turned out and ever more pleased with the final photos. How cute is he! You can't not smile when you see his happy face!

Christmas Mini Sessions 2018 ~ Hornchurch Essex https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/christmas-mini-sessions-2018-hornchurch-essex So it's that time if year again already! The kids are another year older and going faster than you want! It's hard being a parent. Why can't they stay small and cute forever! My son knows how I feel about him getting older and taller. He often smiles and says mama look how big I am now. You don't want me to get big though do you? I say nope, you're meant to be my baby boy forever! It think he thinks its' funny and I'm sure he says it to tease me sometimes! 

I've had nurmerous messages, some dating back to the end of August about my Christmas minis this year! I have spent so much time researching and organising things so I hope I'm not too late to the game! I've invested a lot this year in some really cool things like a fabulous Christmassy backdrop, a post box for one set up and some lovely Christmas pillows, a duvet and duvet cover for my other set up. 

So here they are, Christmas minis 2018. It’s the perfect way to update your children’s images AND tick off presents for nana & grandads, aunties & uncles!

So what do you get this year?


An awesome letter for Santa that will receive via e-mail or post, whichever your preference. Fill it out with your little one if they need some help and then bring it on the day to be posted off to Santa! They will then receive a letter back from the big man himself! (Well actually a middle aged female, am I classified as middle age yet? Oh gosh I hope not! Anyway they don't need to know that) I've looked online and Royal mail doesn't guarantee a letter back so I'll get them sent :) Each child will also receive a wrapped present. 

2 fabulous sets on the day. Bring the kids in a wooly jumper, fun Christmas shirt, beautiful dress or what ever you fancy for the Christmas tree backdrop.

The second set is the Christmas bed with a beautiful white duvet and some Christmas pillows. Kids can wear fun Christmassy pj's or again whatever you'd like. I'll have some Christmas books on hand. The night before Christmas is always a favourite at our house, what about yours? Sebastian has already mentioned who is reading him the story this year. I felt kinda sad that it wasn't be but nearly burst into tears when he said Grammie :) My parents are going to spend their first Christmas here in the UK with us and we can't wait!! The countdown is on! Feel free to bring your own special Christmas Eve book, their favourite blanket, stuffed toy and or stocking.

HOW TO BOOK

The Mini sessions are only taking place over the two dates again this year: They are Saturday the 3rd of November and Sunday the 4th of November.  Many current clients as well as others have enquired about the Christmas sessions this year and have been patiently waiting for the dates to be released so these slots won’t be available for long. To book a session please email me at sballaphotography@gmail.com, pop me a message on facebook to click Here and state which date you would like and a preference for a time and I will reply back with a few suitable session times on your chosen date.
 

The Christmas mini sessions are for a maximum of 3 (possibly 4) children due to the backdrop size. Babies are welcome but must be nearly able to sit unaided or sit with a siblings support as the set and props are not suitable for younger babies. Please also note that as the sessions are only 20 min

I'm so excited about this years sets and to welcome back some past clients and meet new ones this year. I love seeing how the children have grown and their personalities have changed each year!

Enough of me blabbing away! Get booking so I can see your gorgeous little ones all ready for Christmas!

Baby names. What have you decided? ~ Hornchurch Essex Newborn & Family Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/baby-names-what-have-you-decided-hornchurch-essex-newborn-family-photographer So you are pregnant and searching for a name! Congratulations! Or maybe you have seen my facebook post and have stopped by to find out which name I chose for my son and where the name came from. Firstly though, WOW there are many choices! Are you feeling or did you feel super overwhelmed with all the choices? Or did you know straight away? Maybe you have a family name that you want to carry on or maybe you have chosen a name from a book, a tv show or a movie.

Who can guess which movie this boy features in? 

barret-oliver-as-bastian-in-the-neverendingbarret-oliver-as-bastian-in-the-neverending

A movie, that's where I got my sons name from and poor hubby didn't have a choice! I was about 12 or 13 when I first seen the film so a rather long time ago. I loved the boys name Bastian and knew that if I had a son his name would be Sebastian.  So who is old enough to remember the Neverending story?  

Taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_NeverEnding_Story_(film) Bastian is a shy and outcast bibliophile ten-year-old, teased by bullies from school. On his way to school, he hides from the bullies in a bookstore, interrupting the grumpy bookseller, Mr. Coreander. Bastian asks about one of the books he sees, but Mr. Coreander advises against it. With his curiosity piqued, Bastian seizes the book, leaving a note promising to return it, and hides in the school's attic to read.

His middle name. Well that is a bit of a story as well. See my husband and step son do not have middle names and my husband doesn't understand why you have them. What is the purpose of them he asks a million times. When do you actually use it? It just takes longer to fill out forms...these are some of his responses. Ok I kind of agree with him. My middle name only got used growing up when I was in trouble!! haha Can you relate? So what do we actually use them for? I do love when a middle name is after a family member like a parent or grandparent.   My brother is James Roy and is named after my dad. Roy is my dads first name. My husband still wasn't buying this. I would have loved to have used my dads middle name which is Vincent but no, that was a no go. What about after his family you may ask. Well one grandchild (his cousin) is already named after one grandfather and the other one has a name we would unfortunately never ever use! So the weeks and months went by trying to talk him into it. Finally I had a plan!! What if we use a name from his country. He got quite for minute and then said ok maybe!! YES! A breakthrough! BUT now the problem was finding one we liked and could agree on. Oh the challenges!!! I am sure some of you can agree just how challenging this can be. Of course by this point we already knew we were having a boy and EVERY name I loved was a girls name!! Go figure right!? Then one day I found one. I was so excited when he finally agreed. So here we have it. My 5.5 year old is called Sebastian Ilirian, named after the never-ending story and the kingdom of Illyria.

Now tell me in the comments what your children's names are and are they named after someone or is it just a name you liked. I really would love to hear. I ask every newborn parent I meet in the studio.

If you are still struggling to find a name or would like to see popular ones click here for the top 100 girls names of 2018 and here for the boys

Lastly you can click here for an a-z list of names which even tell you how popular the name is and the origin.

Why a Sitter Session? Photography Photoshoot | Hornchurch | Brentwood | Romford | Rayleigh | Essex https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/why-a-sitter-session-photography-photoshoot-hornchurch-brentwood-romford-rayleigh-essex Why a sitter session? Well why not!? 

They are just way too cute at this age with their chubby arms and legs and their big smiles. Their personalities really start to shine through and they are highly interactive and just so much fun. 

Sitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, EssexSitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, Essex

Newborn and cake smash photography sessions are becoming ever so popular but so many are missing this super adorable in-between age. All those forgotten months learning to clap, smile, laugh and sit independently. 

Sitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, EssexSitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, Essex

These sessions are a perfect follow on from the newborn sessions or for their first professional photoshoot.  

Sessions will be scheduled around their nap and meal times and will last about 30 minutes. I'll ask that you bring an outfit or 2 and you are more than welcome to use some of my special sitter outfits that have been handmade. We will use a minimum of two set ups including props. Small handmade blankets and quilts from grandma are a great accessory to bring as well as a favourite toy and book.

Sitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, EssexSitter session, Child photographer Hornchurch, ORmford, Brentwood, Rayleigh, London, Essex

To get the variety within these sitter sessions it's important that your baby has mastered sitting and ideally not on the move just yet! Typical age range is anywhere between 6-10 months depending on your baby’s development stage.

6 Day Old Krishitha-Newborn Photographer Hornchurch Essex London https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/10/6-day This summer I took advantage of going home to Canada for a whole month with my son before he started school this year. The weeks leading up to our trip were crazy busy with photoshoots, seeing friends, normal house stuff and more. When I received the call about a newborn session I knew I couldn't pass it up. Thankfully I was able to squeeze them in the following day just 3 days before we left.  Krishitha was just 6 days old when she came to see me and boy was she adorable!! 

Baby K27Baby K27 This session was special because I had a new prop I have had for some time and wanted to try out. The baby needs to be very sleepy though for safety reasons. It goes without saying, I was really excited to have such a sweet girl to try the prop out with.​ It's also the perfect prop when the newborn has siblings. I'll definitely be using this again in future sessions.

Golden Hour Location Photoshoot at Harrow Lodge Park-Family Photographer Hornchurch https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/golden-hour-location-photoshoot-at-harrow-lodge-park-family-photographer-hornchurch Golden hour photos, stunning right? Well to be honest I have always been a bit scared of light. Finding the light in an outdoor session that is. I'm worried clients are going to be squinting in the photos or have harsh shadows on their face over even worse, dark looking bags under their eyes. I absolutely love golden hour pictures though so bite the bullet and got myself out there. I've spend many many hours learning and finally had the chance while in Canada to put my knowledge to the test. It's definitely been a learning curve but I am loving the photos. 

Get in touch if you'd like to book your golden hour session. Mention you read my blog post and receive 20% off these sessions.  Limited time only. The best time to take these pictures is around one hour before sun down and one hour after sunrise, because that’s when the light is at its softest, lacking hard shadows, rich in colors and bathing your subject in even beautiful light.​  

I still have a lot to learn but I'm pretty darn pleased with my 3rd attempt with beautiful golden hour light. What do you think? Please feel free to comment below.

These 3 boys were great and I had a blast, even if little Rowan didn't stay still for more than a millisecond. He made me and his brothers work for their photos. I love all the out take ones of him climbing over top of them while they tried to pull him back into place. Good job boys!

7 Day Old Amelie-Hornchurch Newborn Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/7-day-old-amelie-hornchurch-newborn-photographer I hope you've all had a lovely summer! Who went somewhere nice? I was very fortunate to be able to visit my family in Canada for all of July, then soon after returning we enjoyed our first all inclusive holiday in Gran Canaria. It's always nice to get back to your own stuff though and I was looking forward to getting back to my photography. 

While at the airport waiting in line to board the plane I received an e-mail from Amelie's mom Charlotte inquiring about a newborn session. She was due to go to the hospital the following Wednesday to give birth. Newborns are my absolute favourite so of course I made space. 7 day old Amelie arrived on the day with her 2 big sisters and her parents.  We started out with some sibling photos before dad took the girls off for a treat. Amelie and I then got to work and I got some great photos for her gallery. How cute is she! Here are a few of my favourites.

Interested in booking a newborn session? Please get in touch as soon as possible. Weekends are limited so please do book early.

Back to School Mini Sessions | Hornchurch Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/8/back-to-school-mini-sessions-hornchurch-photographer

BOOK NOW to capture all the special memories of your little ones school journey. I know how important a time it is when your child starts school or goes into the next year in their school journey. My son starts this year and I’m not sure how to feel about it! So Fancy something different than the boring old traditional school photos that look like mug shots? The ones where your child has a silly face or their hair out of place or where they just look plain scared? My back to school sessions are fun for the kids and you will have a great selection of photos to choose from.

To capture this moment I have decided to hold Back to School Mini Sessions. You will have a lovely variety of images to choose from. These sessions only run over set days and will fill up quickly so please get in touch ASAP to secure your session date and time. 

The session is £20 which includes the session, an online gallery, props and a 6x8 print in a card strut. Packages will be available with a deal if you pay on the day.

This is a milestone not to miss!

Below is an idea of what your gallery could look like. Please get in touch with any questions you may have.

Biggest family session to date-Hornchurch Family Photographer-London/Essex https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/5/biggest-family-session-to-date-hornchurch-family-photographer-london/essex I recently had a spectacular session with the Doyle family, all 13 of them! Nicola and Geoff, who do not look like they can have grown children! Their 4 children, 2 daughter in laws, a boyfriend of one of their daughters and their 4 grandchildren.  Nicola had contacted me sometime ago to arrange a date. All of her precious family were going to be in the same country at the same time! Her son, daughter-in law and 5 months old grandson who live in Canada were due to arrive at the end of April. I booked them in for the 30th and started on a list of possible combinations as well as adding her must have shots to the list. Challenges can easily arise with so many people in small studio but we had no problems at all! Everyone took direction amazingly and the children, the little ones, were amazing! I have limited weekdays and weekends available so do get in touch if you are interested in booking your session. 

 

Okay, on to a few pictures of the Doyle family!

11 Day old baby Ava-Hornchurch Photographer-London-Essex https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/11-day-old-baby-ava-hornchurch-photographer-london-essex

Doo doo doo doooo! Introducing... AVA!

I'm still flying high from one of the most amazing newborn shoots I've had. This adorable little lady has a pretty awesome big brother called Oliver that I am sure is going to look out for her as she gets older.

page1image3296

Paint splash, Children, maternity, newborn, cake smash Photographer EssexPaint splash, Children, maternity, newborn, cake smash Photographer Essex

As for baby Ava, she was a little angel and slept peacefully through the majority of our session. I have to mention how much of a superstar her big brother was. I always suggest to parents who want sibling photos to bring someone else along so they can take the sibling home once we have finished with those particular photos. Newborn sessions can last up to 4 hours so you can imagine how bored a toddler could get. While his new sister was being fed by mommy though he and I had fun making puzzles and building train tracks and he stayed the whole time. We even got dad to help out with the track.

page2image5656

I always love incorporating items that parents bring to a session. I have to be honest and say Ava’s mom caught me by a bit of a surprise when she asked if she could bring her wedding dress. I was definitely excited but also slightly nervous about how I was going to use a wedding dress with an 11 day old baby. I needn’t have worried. I am so happy with the way the dress pictures and Ava turned out and I hope I have more moms request this! Thank you so much for asking Louise!

I hope you enjoy looking at her photos as much as I loved taking them!

I hope to see Ava in the very near future for a sitters session! Maybe her mom will bring back the dress......to be continued....

Alfred turns 1-Essex Cake Smash Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/2/alfred-turns-1-essex-cake-smash-photographer I love it when clients come back to see me to have their kids photographed. I always love seeing how much the kids and babies have grown! Alfred and his brother first came to my new studio as a surprise for their dads birthday. They came kitted out in their matching West Ham kits and were so cute! If you'd like to see some of my favourites from that session you can see my post here. This time Alfred came for his one year cake smash. We started with a clean portrait session before moving on to getting messy. He wasn't a huge fan of the cake and needed a bit of help from daddy but I was still able to capture some great photos for his mom and dad. Here are some of my favs, look at that face!

WIN WIN WIN your Mother's Day Mommy & Me Mini Session - Hornchurch Family Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/1/win-win-win-your-mothers-day-mini-session---hornchurch-family-photographer Wow can you believe another year has started. With that comes all sorts of special days. Back in Canada where I grew up we had to wait until May to celebrate with our gorgeous and awesome mommies. Here in the UK we get to do it a bit sooner. After living here for so many years I still forget which day it is and always have to google (what did we do before google!? I'd seriously be lost these days without it!) So today just as I was about to release my dates for my sessions I figured I better check when Mother's Day is. Google tells me it is 6 weeks and 6 days from today on the 6th of March, (I hope that is not a bad sign with all them 6's) So it's the day after my birthday. I should be able to remember that. This should also be easy for my hubby to remember, right?  

I am super excited to be holding these special sessions this year.  Although it may bring a tear to my eye thinking of my own mom being so many miles and an ocean away the thought of photographing moms and their children puts a massive smile on my face.  Life is ever so short sometimes and I have just been recently reminded by a good friend how cruel and fleeting life can be. Photos are the most amazing gift to be passed through the generations. The bond between a mother and child is like no other. If you are anything like me it has been many years since you have had a professional photo of you and your mom or your children. Mine was at my wedding in 2010. When was yours? If my mom wasn't so far away we would be getting more photos done. I want these to pass on to my kids and grandkids and beyond. This summer when I go to Canada this is on my 'to do' list! It doesn't matter if your littles are young or old your children will remember and treasure these photos with you. 

If you don't have any children how about gifting a session to your own mom? Or to your wife? These sessions are not just for moms who have little kids. You could be my age, bring YOUR mom! 

FREE FREE FREE!! Want to win a session? Share this blog post for 3 entries, head to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SashaBallaPhotography/ Make sure you like my page then tag all your mommy friends, family, husband, partner, mom, anyone who you think may love to have some photos taken with their mom or kids. Each tag equals one entry so the more tags the better your chances. Lastly share my Facebook post about the sessions and receive another 2 entries.

Get booking, sharing and get ready to spoil your mom. 

Happy early Mother's Day and I hope to see some of you soon :)

Time sure flies! Now that everyone is back to school and work at our house I have finally had some time to go through my favourites from these sessions and am going to be posting a few. I've also been updating my website with some new photos. This is Ina and her lovely mommy.

Newborn session with 4 week old Rowan-Newborn Photographer Hornchurch https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/10/newborn-session-with-4-week-old-rowan-newborn-photographer-hornchurch Oh how I love newborn sessions. So small and sweet. Meet Rowan. He was first scheduled in at 5 days old but due to his mom being unwell we had to reschedule. Since my son Sebastian and I were off to Canada for 3 weeks to see my family  we booked in for 2 days after we arrived back. Rowan was 4 weeks at this time and although he didn't want to sleep for long I was still able to capture some gorgeous photos of him for his mom and dad :) Here are some of mine and moms favourites.

Pregnancy progression & maternity session with Anna-Hornchurch Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/gorgeous-maternity-session-with-anna-hornchurch-photographer I met Anna about a year ago on one of the mommy groups we are both on and when I put out a model call to try something called a pregnancy progression she got in touch. We've now seen each 5 times over the past 7 or so months. She first came to me when she was just 14 weeks pregnant for her first progression photo. I then photographer her at 20, 27, 32 and 38 weeks. 2 days ago she came to me to have her final photo done. After we got the progression photo we took advantage of my new studio, a tutu I made and some beautiful lace fabric I had bought. She looked beautiful in all the photos and I even captured some lovely photos of her daughter Tianna. Some of her favourites and mine.

Pet photography-Hornchurch Essex https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/pet-photography-hornchurch-essex A little something different. I've never really thought about pet photography until now. I just seen a photographers post on a group I'm in mention getting a new kitten and couldn't wait to take pictures. It didn't take long before the thread took off. Loads of people started posting all kinds of animal pictures! There were some super cute ones and reminded me that I had some of my own cat although it wasn't planned. Not long ago I had bought a new floor and also a new backdrop and had yet to try them. As most of us photographers do that have children we bribe them into trying out our new stuff, oh did I say bribe? Oh my child always sits perfect and poses, said NO photographer EVER ;) Oh, well maybe there are some just not me. Well in this case I didn't need my cheeky but oh so cute 3 year old because my 6 year old British Shorthair and Ragdoll Cross decided he'd like to pose for me :) I hope you enjoy.

TOP SECRET BIRTHDAY SURPRISE for West Ham fan dad from his boys-Hornchurch, Essex Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/birthday-surprise-for-the-boys-dad-hornchurch-essex-photographer A few weeks ago I received a message from someone I had met a few months ago. She was looking to have photos done of her baby boy and step son. They are massive West Ham fans and the boys came prepared with brand new kits. They looked so cute! We were able to do a few sets up before they had enough and I captured some great photos. The session was a surprise for her husbands upcoming birthday and was TOP SECRET! We had a great time planning and being all secretive, well at least I had fun, I love a good surprise! I was very impressed that her step son was able to keep the secret from his dad to! Way to go Josh!! I heard daddy was so happy and very surprised. And to think he was wanting an xbox game, blah ;) haha. Thanks Angela for having me take the photos, I LOVE surprises and it was great to see you again and meet your lovely mother-in-law :) The secret is out now so time to share.  A few pictures of the boys rocking their kits...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Paint Splash with my cheeky, adorable and kind hearted boy-Hornchurch Photographer https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/paint-splash-with-my-cheeky-adorable-and-kind-hearted-boy-hornchurch-photographer Have you heard about paint splash sessions??? They are a SUPER fun way to celebrate your little ones 2nd or 3rd birthday. My little guy Sebastian turned 3 in July and we had so much FUN!! He's a great test model :) Cake smashes are awesome to and are a great for one and two year olds. Both sessions start off with a clean portrait session before we bring out the good stuff. You can bring a special outfit or two for the portrait session before moving on to getting messy. We will work together beforehand to decide on colours, clothing and themes.  I have a few tutus for the girls and ties and nappy covers for the boys. You can always bring your own though. If you are interested in either session get in touch via my http://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/contact.html, e-mail sballaphotography@gmail.com or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SashaBallaPhotography

Here are some photos from Sebastian's session. I'd love to hear your thoughts :)

School Leavers Party & Disco at Dorothy Barley 2015 https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/8/school-leavers-party-at-dorothy-barley-2015 It's that time of year again when all the year 6 students are now off for their last summer from primary school before moving on to secondary school in September.  I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the year 6 students again this year from primary school Dorothy Barley in Dagenham. The total this year was up to 92 from 83 that I photographed last year! There were a lot of happy faces from kids that were excited about moving on but there were also some that weren't quite so sure about this big step, can;t say I blame them!  When I arrived to set up the teachers were busily setting up the disco dance with colourful lights and decorations and the food was being prepared. I quickly set up and before I knew it I could hear excited voices filling the halls of the school. A few heads peeked around the corner curiously wondering what I was up to. Before long the students started lining up to have their photo taken. After all the individuals were done we took some time for group pictures and  less than 2 hours later we were all done. Everything went smoothly and I had a great time and can't wait till next year to see all the new year 6 students. If you work in a school or know someone who does and are interested in me coming to your school next July to take photos of your leavers party please do get in touch.

An afternoon of boat racing and fishing https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/7/an-afternoon-of-boat-racing-and-fishing I recently got invited by a lovely new photographer friend to head up to beautiful Hertfordshire to take some photos of our boys. We sure had a fun and interesting afternoon filled with boat racing, fishing and rain. Ok the rain wasn't so fun but we did have a bit of a laugh because we decided to take cover under a tree and wait it out. At one point we thought it is never going to stop as it was raining buckets!! Luckily it did eventually stop but not before we got rather wet from our 'shelter aka the dripping tree!! Here are a few of my favourites. Enjoy :) For styled sessions please do get in touch to discuss how we can make your session your own.

I HEART FACES Photo Challenge Submission https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/6/i-heart-faces-photo-challenge-submission I have never entered a competition before with any of my photos whether it be for fun or a more serious competition. However I couldn't pass up the opportunity to enter the current one with iheartfaces. As soon as I seen that the challenge was props I knew exactly which photo to use! Well not exactly which one because I took a series of photos and I am in love them all! My little guy is in love with superheros at the moment, particulary Hulk. But who's little boy isn't right now with all the Marvel stuff floating around! I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you'd like to join in or to see what other photos have been entered just click here

Barking and Dagenham Post https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/3/barking-and-dagenham-post Sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time.  This past Saturday was like most Saturdays, my husband and stepson were heading out to Mayesbrook park to go training and time trials were on. This consists of paddling around the lake 3 times, running abound the whole lake once and then paddling again for another 3 laps.  About two years ago while looking for activities to keep my step son busy I came across Barking Canoe Club. The weather wasn't the best that year but a few months later he was attending twice a week. A few months after that my husband got talked into getting in a boat and less than a year later he was training for the Devises to Westminster race which is 125 miles! Anyhow my mom arrived from Canada a few days before so I thought it would be nice to go to the park and see everyone. This particular Saturday there was also meant to be someone from the Barking and Dagenham post and I was a tad curious about what he was writing about. Luckily enough I had brought my new camera to try out before this weekends Waterside D race and was able to capture some photos which the writer, Sebastian, was able use for his article. Here are some of the others I took that day. If you'd like to see the article you can read it here http://www.barkinganddagenhampost.co.uk

My Adorable, cheeky, clever 'big boy" https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/3/my-adorable-big-boy Well today is my birthday so thought I'd do a blog post of my handsome little man who I get to spend the day with :) These are just some random favourites I have taken of him over the past few months. A few have had different editing done to them and not all are "correct" in the photography world but I still love them.  If you missed my post on Facebook of his Hulk impression I'm sure you can pick it out here :)

How fast they grow https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/3/how-fast-they-grow 16 week old Shay hasn't been in this world for very long but I've had the pleasure of photographing him twice already. The first time was back in November when I had a call from his mom about taking his newborn photos (which I will blog about one day soon) He had awesome hair then and I see he is still rocking it now :) I can't wait to see him again when he is sitting and on the move.

Intense but splendid 2 hour photo shoot with 83 school kids! https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/8/Intense-but-splendid-2-hour-photo-shoot-with-83-school-kids I can't believe how time has flown! In July this year I was contacted about taking photos of year 6 students, all 83 of them, at their leaving party or as some call it the prom. So many of them were all dressed up, the boys looked really smart in suits and nice shirts while the girls were looking lovely in beautiful dresses. I had never done anything like it before but I was ready to take on this amazing opportunity and challenge! I kept meaning to write this post but doing a school shoot is a lot of work and then I was busy preparing for a Wedding this past Saturday!! It's not just about taking the photos, you have edit them, print proofs then organise them, deliver the order forms with the proofs, collect the orders, order the final products and then organise all the prints and lastly get them ready for shipping or delivery to the school.  Saying all that it was a fantastic experience and I had a great time, the staff were all so lovely and helpful and the children were all very cooperative and everything went smoothly :-) Hopefully I will get the opportunity again next year and am hoping to also secure a few more schools and am going to start looking into nurseries as well.  So if anyone works in a nursery or school and can get me in touch/pass on details of who I could contact it would be greatly appreciated!! I'm really pleased with how well it all turned out and a huge thank you to Lauren again for contacting me! Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summer holidays! Time for me to get back to editing Wedding photos and prepare for my competition winner. For details of my current competition head over to my Facebook page to see how you can win.

A day out with my boys and some animals https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/3/a-day-out-with-my-boys-and-my-love-of-animals Animals, especially cats, big ones, are on the list of top 5 things I love the most. White tigers are my absolute fav and have been for as long as I can remember. For a few years I sponsored a gorgeous Bengal Tiger and her cub. I loved getting the updates and seeing the pictures where she had been caught on camera. Anyway last week as most of you know was yet another week off for the kids here in England, seems they never go to school here ;)  On the Monday I took my stepson, his friend and my little guy to Paradise Wildlife park in Hertfordshire.  It's not too far of a drive for us, about 45 minutes and we were lucky that the rain stayed away that day! We have had so much rain these past few months it's unbelievable! I was so happy to try out my fairly new 70-200mm lens on something other than people :) It's a honking thing and weighs an absolute ton and I probably looked like a total fool but I was so glad I took it. I was able to capture some really great shots of those beautiful animals and my little guy loves looking at them and growling and making monkey noises when he sees them. I think he is definitely going to be an animal lover like his mama :) I can't wait till April when one of my lovely friends from Canada will be here with her little girl and we can explore a zoo or wildlife park together.  So exciting! I hope you enjoy the photos below and if you'd like to see more click here. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you or your child's favourite animal is.

Newborn Model Call https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/2/newborn-model-call I LOVE babies, especially newborns! I love their tiny little feet and hands, pouty lips, thin tiny eyelashes and that soft fuzzy hair on their little bodies. Growing up I was a real tomboy and couldn't stand the thought of playing with barbies!! I did however love 'real' babies, you know the ones that were about the size of a newborn and you could change their clothes and put a nappy on them, mine was also quite heavy and felt like a real baby. I'm pretty sure I still have her packed away at my parents with all kinds of other bits and bobs like my Cabbage Patch Kid named Felix that I took EVERYWHERE. He even went to hospital one time when I was little and the doctor gave him a blue hat like the one he was wearing :) When I got older I started babysitting (at about 12) and then at about 18 I took a nanny job in the city 2 hours away from my parents. After that job I worked for many families with children of all different ages in a few different counties around the world. Although I love children of all ages I absolutely LOVE babies and 2 of my dream jobs were caring for 12 week old triplets and 7 week old twins. I was so lucky that those boys had such awesome parents to work for as well!! 

Anyway I should get on with what the title states, the Newborn Model Call right! Sometimes when I get new props or new lighting or an idea in my head and I need a model I will post a modelling call. In exchange you will receive the session at no charge with a password protected online gallery and your choice of 5 complimentary images.  The parent must sign a model release/agreement allowing me to use the images taken for my portfolio and marketing.  

Model Call Sessions are not the same as a regular session and are to capture a specific look or perhaps to try a new technique, prop, pose or even a location. If time allows additional images may be taken if requested by the client.

So if you or someone you know is pregnant and is due within the next 2 months or so I would love to chat with you or them and discuss how you can be one of my modelling families.  Whether this is your first baby or you are expanding your family I welcome any family at any stage. If there are siblings I am happy to take additional shots with their new baby brother or sister.

Model call availability is limited. Please contact me here, my Facebook page www.facebook.com/SashaBallaPhotography or via my e-mail, SBallaPhotography@gmail.com

I look forward to talking to you soon!

Night Photography & Light Trails https://www.sashaballaphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/2/night-photography-light-trails My first ever blog post and I really have no idea where to start. I'm kinda rubbish at writing and not really sure how this whole blog thing works but over the past few months I keep hearing from well known photographers and reading it on websites and in e-mails that EVERY photographer MUST have a blog, so hear I go, please bear with me! So 2 weeks ago tonight I went into London to have dinner and a good ol' catch up with my gorgeous friend Adriana. Adriana and I met while both nannying in London about 8 years ago and although both of us are now on different paths we still find time for each other :) After dinner and a much needed catch up she headed home and I jumped on a bus to Trafalgar Square with camera and tripod in tow to experiment with some light trails and night photography. I have seen some really awesome pictures and thought I'd really like to try. By the end of the night I could hardly move my fingers from the cold but it was so worth it! I definitely got some keepers. Now to try it again after I have read a bit about how to do it ;) If you like these have a look at my gallery section on my website to see more. It's still fairly new so I am still in the building process but check back often as I will be working on it in the weeks to come. Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think. If you have some advice about night photography or light trails drop me a line ;)

Until next time

PS Please forgive me for my light trails obsession!
