Louise took some really beautiful photographs of our children and family. The session was enjoyable and relaxed and we are so happy with the result.”

What's it like having a family portrait session?
An overview of my approach

I specialise in striking yet natural portraits of your children and family. We offer an easy and fun experience, and take care that you and your children feel relaxed and comfortable with the camera. We’ll move at your family’s pace, and adapt the format according to your preferences.

I’m highly experienced in photographing newborns, babies, toddlers, children and families.

Family portrait sessions usually start in your own home for an hour or so, and then we’ll take a short trip to your favourite park, a walk around the local area or simply a play in your garden. With newborn portraits, we’re more likely to stay in your home throughout unless you’d especially like some outdoor portraits too.

All photographs are available in both colour and in black & white, with a simple pricing structure (see below) and no hidden surprises.

We work with leading suppliers to offer a wide selection of made-to-measure frames (from £280), luxury Queensberry albums (from £475) and digital files (£290 for the full set, on USB). Fine art prints (from £35) can also be added to any order.

Clients typically invest between £280 and £900 on products, including a larger piece for themselves and a few smaller items as gifts.

Please contact us for a products guide with full options and prices.

We offer newborn photography, baby photography, toddler photography, child photography, family photography, maternity photography, christening photography, baptism photography, nursery portraits, commercial photography, birthday party photography and photography tuition. If you’re looking for something else, please do get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.

I hope you’ll enjoy looking through my website – if you feel I might be the right photographer for your family, do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully to meeting you soon.

Louise and her colleague Helen were a pleasure to work with from the outset. They ensured that we were well informed and kept regular contact in advance of the booking to take into account the unpredictable date of birth.
Louise came to our home and took some beautiful photos. She was very personable and easy going which helped put us at ease given a period of lack of sleep. Her patience allowed us to have more time to get the baby ready and ensured more relaxed photos. We really like her natural style of photography coupled with some beautiful suggestions for shots.
As a follow up we did buy a frame with 6 prints and Louise was very engaged and made suggestions which were extremely valuable.
Overall we would highly recommend Louise Rose Photography and choose her again for future shoots.

Everything about our experiences with Louise have been outstanding. From our first interaction over email, to introducing her to our children, to the actual sessions in our home, the entire process has always been easygoing and natural. She's patient and extremely good with young kids and babies, even when they aren't in the mood to be photographed. I also really like the variety of choices she offers for purchasing photographs and framing. And that there is a reasonably-priced rush option. The best review I can offer is that we first had Louise shoot our family Christmas portrait in 2014, and we've returned to her every year since. This year will be no exception!

I couldn't recommend Louise more highly. She came to photograph myself and my three month old baby. I was exhausted, I am somewhat awkward in front of a camera, and my poor little baby had dry scabby skin that day and kept crying which was very atypical for her! However, and goodness knows how, Louise worked incredible magic. It was all very easy and relaxed and I am SO SO GLAD I now have this collection of perfect photos of me and my little girl. I shall cherish them forever. An incredibly wise investment that I would recommend to anyone.

Louise did an amazing job capturing our little girl in the early days. The photos are natural, relaxed, and not over-styled. Exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended!!

Louise took some beautiful photos of our little family when our daughter was only 6 days old. She has a lovely, calming effect on babies and really put us and our little one at ease. She's also very patient, allowing for cuddles, feeds etc. without any time pressure.
