Covid-19 Updated Procedures

The studio is currently closed until April 12th 2021


Covid-19 has dramatically changed every one of our lives in many different ways.

For many people, it has highlighted the importance of family above all else. Our priorities have shifted back towards our core values of togetherness and those we love the dearest. I have received an incredible amount of interest in family and newborn portrait photography over this time and it leads me to believe that the urge to capture what is most precious to us, is greater than ever.


I am operating a growing waiting list for those parents who are keen to have their baby and family photographed from April 12th onwards.


Please get in touch here to register your interest.

I've used this time to update and decorate my baby studio space and we have changed the layout.

I feel confident that social distancing is possible for the majority of a session.


The studio will soon be available to book for all session types including:~



Cake Smash



Christmas Mini Sessions

Alternatively, where possible, I will be able to offer outdoor sessions in the beauty of nature,

yes - even during the chillier months!

Here are an outline of my new procedures that I will be following.

I ask that you do the same, thank you.

Here is what I am doing to keep you safe:

*Separate studio entrance

*All surfaces in the studio are cleaned before and after each session

*All props, outfits and textile accessories are washed prior and after your session. Where this is not possible they will be quarantined for 72hrs ahead of your session

*Distinct parent seating area away from where I work with baby/subject

*Wearing PPE and using hand sanitiser 

*Keeping a distance of 1-2 meters away from parents whilst I work posing baby. When posing your baby or photographing siblings and parents, distancing won't be possible, but I will be wearing PPE

*Keeping my workflow pre-planned and effective so that the entire session lasts no longer than 1hr-1hr30mins (Newborn), or up to 1hr (all other session types)

*I am still offering Outdoor Newborn and other photo sessions if you would prefer

*You can choose whether to attend a viewing in person, or online

Here's what I ask you to do:

*Please use the hand sanitiser on entry to the studio and leave outdoor shoes by the studio entrance

*Please wear a mask in the studio whilst you are waiting to have your photographs taken

*Only parents and siblings to attend session. No extended family 

*Please do not bring items from home, such as outfits for your session, I have everything here

*Please bring your own refreshments and take away any rubbish home with you

*Please be aware there will be absolutely no access to my home from the adjoining studio.

As a result of this I won't be able to offer a WC during your session.



Alongside studio newborn sessions, I will soon be able to to offer outdoor newborn photography sessions and all other types of photography sessions, all of which adhere to PPE and social distancing requirements. 1m plus distance will be kept at all times from your family and the photoshoot experience will be entirely contactless.*

*Outdoor Newborn Photography will include a small contact element when I wrap and pose your baby, but I will be wearing PPE at all times.

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 soon be able to offer these limited outdoor photo sessions!

Outside sessions ~

* 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,
