I make sure your newborn session is easy and relaxed for both you and your baby, and an enjoyable, memorable event for the family.
“The photos are everything I hoped they would be, and more – there are so many beautiful pictures. I will always treasure these photos of those special early days.” Nell

My Approach To Newborn Photography
As newborns are adorable as they are, I take natural photographs in your everyday surroundings, rather than tucking your baby into buckets!
As well as gorgeous portraits of your baby, I’ll photograph the love between you and your baby, so you can remember what life was like in these special first few weeks.
I’ll photograph your newborn baby as he or she sleeps, gazes up at you or snuggles up in your arms, and photograph you all as a family as you find your feet with a new human in tow.
Siblings And Extended Family
If you have other children, I’ll photograph them with the newborn too – plus take some individual photographs of your older children as well.
I totally get that pets are also part of your family, and they’re more than welcome too!
“We’re thrilled with the relaxed, natural style of the photos. Louise was very calm and professional on the day, which immediately put us and our newborn baby at ease. We’d highly recommend Louise.”
“Louise was a pleasure to work with from the outset. She ensured that we were well informed and kept regular contact in advance of the booking. Louise came to our home and took some beautiful photos. She was very personable and easy going, which helped put us at ease given our 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. We bought a storyboard frame, and Louise made suggestions which were extremely valuable. We would highly recommend Louise, and would choose her again for future shoots.” Alessandro
“Louise was very flexible with our shoot’s timing, essential when dealing with newborns! On the day, Louise was very patient with my not so sleepy baby and had many methods to calm him, getting some great shots. We loved the natural style in which she photographs.” Nicola
“Louise was fantastic. It was easy to make an appointment,and she was incredibly flexible when our daughter’s arrival ran late. She was very good with the children, putting them at ease immediately – and had a number of tricks up her sleeve! Ordering products afterwards was easy, and Louise talked us through all the options available to us. Most importantly, the photos were fantastic.” Fred
“We loved having Louise come over to capture the first early snaps of our wonderful new baby. She was funny and personable throughout and made the whole experience fun and enjoyable.” George
“I’m so happy with our prints. Louise managed to capture our family beautifully, and in a style that is completely unforced. No mean feat when that family includes an energetic four-year-old with lots of unorthodox ideas about how to organise a photo shoot, as well as a tiny baby.
Every step of the process (talking through the various packages on offer, the shoots themselves, and choosing which images to frame) was relaxed and enjoyable.
It’s not easy picking a photographer to do a family portrait, as beyond technical skill it’s their ability to put people (including young children) at ease that determines how good the images will be. Louise did this wonderfully well, and I’m really glad we went with her.” Harry
“We booked Louise for a newborn and family photo session to take pictures of us with our 10-day-old son and our toddler at our home. She was absolutely lovely to work with. We were particularly impressed by the way she immediately made our toddler feel at ease – he is usually quite shy with new people but she spent a bit of time chatting with him when she first arrived and he warmed to her instantly. By the time she started snapping photos, he was really performing for the camera which we’d never seen him do before! Louise was also very gentle and calm with our newborn, so he stayed really relaxed – we got so many lovely pictures. Her photography style is very natural which we loved – the pictures captured moments of family life in our home, and we also got some lovely natural portraits of our children. It was great that we were able to keep digital copies of all the photos from the session (not all photographers offer this), so we can look at all of them whenever we want and print more pictures in future if we decide to. We would definitely recommend Louise!” Ania
“We are delighted with the pictures Louise took of us and our newborn baby. We love the natural style – just what we were after! Louise was friendly and helpful from start to finish.”
