headshoteditThank you for taking the time to look at my portfolio and for considering me to be your newborn photographer. It is an honour to specialise in this field and I love meeting new families as they bond with their brand new baby. Newly born babies change so quickly and this special time as a new parent can pass in such a blur. It’s so important to to capture this time so you have these memories to look back on time and time again as your baby grows. Before long your baby will be rolling over, then sitting, and then toddling around – it goes so fast!

My photographic business began in 2011 in Hong Kong where I took photographs for fellow expat families so they could share their experiences with relatives from home. These images were a lifeline to the grandparents and family back home and an important way for them to see children growing/changing and family life. Through doing all types of shoots from pregnancy, newborns, family, lifestyle and on location I realised that the sessions I found most captivating were the newborn photo shoots. I just loved capturing this incredibly intimate moment in a young family’s life so that they would have beautiful photographs to enjoy forever.

When we relocated back to the UK in 2014 I decided to follow my heart and Echo Baby Photography was born. Since then I have photographed many many newborn babies, including twins & preemies and have completed specialist training with world reknowned Newborn Photographers such as Australian based Kelly Brown (Little Pieces Photography). Armed with a Fine Art degree and Diploma in Professional Photography I use my expertise to consistently create stunning artworks for my clients of their newborn baby. And I love what I do!

As a mother of two myself, the safety of each and every baby is my utmost priority and I make sure they are comfortable and secure at all times. Together with the Baby and Newborn Photographers Association (BANPAS) I am committed to best working practices and safe posing. I am fully insured and am invested in continually moving my work to the ‘next level’  with my aim to provide exemplary customer service to all my clients.

The Technical Bit…

Well I’m a Nikon girl (sorry Canon!) and use a D810 full frame camera with usually a 35mm Prime lens or nifty fifty 50mm Prime. With natural light the camera has to be able to perform in low lighting conditions and the D810 does that beautifully. I source backdrops from overseas and the newborn hats and bonnets are handmade by newborn prop designers in super soft yarns.

Why choose me?

I provide excellent service for all my clients from the minute they first get in touch and during each session my entire focus is on your baby. I have years of experience photographing newborns and am relaxed, calm and never rush a session. Every baby is different and so I follow their cues to ensure they are comfortable and safe at all times. I take my business seriously and am fully insured, provide a contract for each client and use a professional lab for all my printing. You can see previous client testimonials here.
