Hi, I'm Rebecca May and I am the photographer behind Rebecca May Photography. My favourite thing in the whole world is helping you capture memories and create timeless wall art of the people you love most, for the walls of your home.

I have been fascinated with the poetry of light and with capturing connection through photography since I held my first 35mm SLR film camera aged just 12 years old. Whilst I began by photographing my childhood pets, soon followed years of study within art, finalising with a Fine Art Degree - it was actually the birth of my first baby which drew me to the beauty and wonder of newborn photography - for which I am probably best known. After shooting my own pregnancy and journey into motherhood, the flame for capturing maternity and newborn photography had been well and truly ignited.

My style is natural and gentle and I am known for my sensitivity when working with newborns and babies. I have a flair for noticing the smallest of visual details, alongside the quality of light and those fleeting expressions which come together to make extraordinary and timeless portraits. With my background in education and a patient nature, I also work well with many types of young children including those whom have additional needs, with a sincere warmth and generosity of heart.

It brings me incredible joy to realise that I have photographed countless newborns, babies, toddlers and families in the past 15 years as a professional portrait photographer, with those very first babies - now sitting their GCSEs.

I am a wife to my art teacher husband and a busy mummy to our two wonderful older children. We are accompanied by our friendly spaniel Margo, who will steal your socks given half the chance.

I am based near Maidstone in Kent, with a gorgeous natural light, cosy baby studio ready to welcome your family. I also offer outdoor older baby and family portraiture as well as wedding photography UK wide.

I look forward to hearing from you with your own special ideas for photography!
