Here we go! Life as you know it is about to change. Whether you’re expecting or in the throes of early parenthood, life is one big rollercoaster at the moment, am I right? This is such a special time: one that may never roll round again. Having a set of relaxed, natural portraits taken of you and bump or you and baby is a gorgeous thing to do. You’ll look back at these photos and wonder how they were ever so small.
BUMP, NEWBORN, BABY
From bump, to very new newborn, to six-week-old or six-month-old, let’s make some beautiful memories.

We had such a lovely morning with Rebeca. All so relaxed which comes across in the shots that we have seen so far. She is absolutely amazing with the children and managed to calm both of them down all morning, which is no mean feat! Thanks so much.
Rebecca is a complete professional and takes absolutely stunning photos. She came to our home to photograph my family before and after the birth of my 2nd child.
As someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy being photographed, I felt completely at ease with her and she was fab with my toddler. Highly recommend her service.
We had a really relaxed morning with Rebecca who photographed our two young girls. They really enjoyed it and it shows in the photos which are incredible. We can’t thank you enough Rebecca! We have wonderful images and memories. I can’t recommend Rebecca highly enough. THANK YOU!
Where will the photos be taken?
Maternity sessions can be held anywhere, your home, a park, a forest, the beach – wherever you like! With all babies I suggest starting at home first and either conducting the whole session there or half there, half outdoors. But please please please, don’t stress about cleaning your house! The aim of me coming to you is to make it easy for you, not stressful. I can assure you the state of my house will always be worse!
How old does my baby have to be?
Any age. I don’t set limits on how young or old your baby needs to be to get great photos. Every age has it’s own advantages and drawbacks. Very new newborns are very squishy and tiny, but they don’t usually have their eyes open or interact with the camera. Six month old’s can sit and interact with me, but might also crawl away… Some might take a little longer to photograph, but… Each age is adorable!
Do you do Fresh48 sessions?
Absolutely! Fresh48 sessions – a newborn session which takes place within 48 hours of baby being born can be done either in hospital or at home. They’re very special sessions which capture your gorgeous newborn at the very new-new stage. Rest assured I’ve been there three times – these sessions are super gentle and relaxed, for both mum and baby. And of course, I’ll make sure it’s beautifully flattering for the new mum – capturing all of the new-baby glow and less of the post-birth exhaustion!
Do you use props? Baskets, blankets, flowers etc.?
My aim is to capture babies as they are in their natural state. Not wrapped into balls and stuffed into baskets. However, I do bring a selection of neutral blankets to use should we need.
What about hygiene?
I adhere to the most rigorous hygiene standards. All my kit is wiped with antibacterial wipes before I attend a session and all blankets etc. are washed at 90 degrees. Inevitably I end up holding newborns during a session, so I also ensure I don’t wear any perfumes or toxic products on my skin (nothing worse than your baby smelling of someone else’s perfume!). I clean my hands thoroughly when I arrive at your home, and regularly top this up with antibacterial gel. If there’s any question at all about my health I will phone you ahead of time to discuss and most likely, reschedule.

I had SUCH a wonderful time photographing this family! The light was STUNNING! So many photographers focus their baby photography on very new newborns. I can understand why I guess - they're all tiny and fragile. And while I love photographing newborns, I also LOVE...
