WELCOME TO GEMERATIONS PHOTOGRAPHY IN BEIGHTON NORFOLK
Hi, I’m Gemma the face behind the camera, here’s a little bit about me.
I am a Norfolk girl born and bred. I first became interested in photography when I was a child, as my Nanny always used to take lots of photos of me and all the activities we did together. She also let me use her camera, as well as letting me have lots of disposable ones. This love of photography continued to grow into adulthood, with me always taking my camera with me on days out, walks, and holidays to capture memories and scenery, along with photographing events for friends such as children’s birthday parties.
I actually have some of my Nanny’s old cameras up on the wall in the studio in tribute to her. I ended up taking more and more photos of family, friends and their children so this led to me deciding to form Gemerations Photography.
I have a 10 year career background in working with children of all ages so I know just want to do to get your little ones to smile, be comfortable and happy for their photos. Your child is in safe hands with me as I have 10 years experience of working with babies and children.
When I am not in the studio I love to be in the great outdoors, spending quality time with my Husband Chris. One of my hobbies is visiting National Trust Sites and RSPB reserves, at the countryside and coast. I love to be around nature, scenery and interesting places. These beautiful locations are also perfect to photograph, so of course I have to take a camera with me as well. I also run another small business Little Gems Baskets selling home learning educational baskets for babies and children.
I would love to be involved in capturing those lifelong memories of your little ones.
Pop me a message if you would like any more information on my different photoshoots.

Why choose me as your Child's
I am a highly qualified and experienced early year’s childcare practitioner who has worked with babies, children and parents since 2008 in a variety of job roles.
Many people are unaware that baby and child photography is an unregulated industry, with no requirements for training or qualifications.
I feel that having a background in the childcare sector is crucial, as I have knowledge on child development and safeguarding, as well as the practical skills in being able to communicate and interact effectively with children, adjusting this according to their age and stage of development.
Even with all this childcare knowledge and experience, I still feel it is highly important to receive regular training and keep my CPD updated. I am a member of The Baby and Newborn Photography Network which supports my development as I can access a variety of online training and guidance here, this has included a series of Newborn Safety Awareness Videos. To ensure the health, well-being and safety of my clients I am qualified in Paediatric First Aid and Food Safety and Hygiene.
I am also the proud owner of a StandInBaby (SIB) called Grace which is the world’s first and only newborn training aid with engineered joints that mirror range of movement of a real newborn baby. This allows me to practice and perfect my skills in newborn photography.
