If you go back about 8 or 9 years, newborn photography in the UK wasn’t really a thing yet. There were a few incredibly inspiring ladies in America producing amazing images, and as I was just getting the bug for digital photography, this new genre caught my eye.
I have always adored that something special newborns have. As a little girl I would run off in shops if I heard a new baby cry. I wanted to go and see. All my dolls had to look realistic too so I felt I had a real baby in my arms. It’s how they feel, how they smell, and how innocent they are. I then went on to have four babies of my own, and while I love my now grown up babies, them as newborns was always the most captivating time for me.
So when I started to investigate newborn photography I realised this was it. This was what I wanted to do. Needed to do. I became obsessed researching the hows and the why’s, emailing other experienced newborn specialists hoping for advice, trawling the internet for ways to learn. It wasn’t long before I was building my business around something I had totally fallen in love with, and as it turned out, was one of the very first in the UK to do so.
Now nearly 8 years on I’m one of the most experienced at newborn photography the UK has to offer, and I love it just as much, if not more. Now I have a new baby of my own…my business, and I welcome you to take a look around my site and hopefully my love for what I do will shine through.
l’m based in leafy Grimsby in Lincolnshire, right on the east coast. I have a cute little studio at my home which is designed to welcome you and your new baby and give you all a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
My love for this industry, and its tiny clients, means I am also passionate about keeping them safe and sound in the hands of photographers who offer a similar service. This is why I also travel Europe and the UK teaching newborn safe posing skills to other photographers, and have also trained people from Argentina, India and Hong Kong.
On top of that, l co founded The Baby and Newborn Photography Association and am now the resident safety co-ordinator at The National Photographic Society (The NPS)
