The Prime Minister has now indicated that 'non-essential' businesses could begin opening from 15th June, as long as social distancing measures could be carried out.

Whilst a return to normal is welcomed and this move is to be celebrated, it is a sad truth that any type of studio sessions (including newborn, sitter, cake smash and maternity) at Rebecca May Photography

cannot at this time be offered.


I am receiving an incredible amount of requests for newborn photography.

The classic, posed studio newborn photography which is my speciality and can be seen and celebrated in all my galleries, is sadly clearly not an area that social distancing techniques can be carried out. The hands on nature of the posing and the safety required for a studio newborn shoot means that it is impossible to carry out effective and safe social distancing.


As such, whilst Rebecca May Photography may be 'open' from the 15th June 2020, I will NOT be carrying out posed studio newborn photography for the foreseeable future.


This will be reviewed on a weekly basis and I am taking the lead from when people may be allowed to visit the hairdresser without any PPE or social distancing being used.


The health and safety of babies and children is paramount to me.

Any reputable newborn photographer should be following the same rules. Whilst those special first few days can never be re-created, a photograph is never, ever worth your baby and your families’ health.




Instead from the 15th June I will be able to offer outdoors photography,

which adheres to social distancing measures. 2m distance will be kept at all times from your family and the photoshoot experience will be entirely contactless. I will not touch you or your baby.

In all honesty - we couldn’t wish for a more perfect time of year for me to return to my roots and offer these colourful outside photo sessions. I adore nature and photographing your family against it’s incredible backdrop never fails to deliver.

I am very excited and happy to start offering limited outdoor photo sessions!

Outside sessions from 15th June ~

* Newborn - up to 3 months
* Baby sessions, including sitters and cake smash 
* Maternity
* Couples
* Family portraits


Biggest love and hugs to you all, stay safe,

Rebecca xxx
