A mum myself, I know how important it is to make a newborn feel comfortable, and I’m careful to be quiet and calm around your new baby. I’m very experienced with how to engage newborns during a portrait session. I totally understand the need for flexibility in newborn portrait sessions and allow plenty of time to stop for feeds, nappy changes or any other little surprises.
I’ll take your bump portrait in the comfort of your own home. We can also go outside to take some portraits in your garden or local park if you’d like.
I use natural light (ie I don’t use flash), and take informal yet sensitive and beautiful photographs.
I can bring a pop-up backdrop if you’d like, so you can have a selection of photographs showing more of your home in the background as well as more traditional black or white backgrounds.

Louise provides approximately 2 hours photography, which covers both some gently posed group portraits of your family and friends before or after the service, discreet photographs of the service itself and also photographs at the reception if you’re having one. Louise’s sensitive approach and silent shutter means she won’t intrude on your experience.
Take your camera off automatic mode and discover what it’s – and you’re! – capable of.

We found the photo shoot experience fun and relaxed as well as very professional - clearly Louise has lots of experience in getting the best out of young children. We are thrilled with the photos!"
Thank you so much, they are gorgeous!"
Our photos exceeded my expectations. They are just beautiful. I actually welled up little when I saw the photos of the children together - Louise managed to capture something really special. They’re exactly what I was after. The ones of the children together are just divine. I’m really, super impressed!"
