Imagine Wonderlands is my way of capturing childhood magic and creating memories that will bring you joy for years to come.

I hand-craft photo sets that children find exciting which brings out their happiness.  The photo sessions are fun and playful so that children can show their personality.  The spark in their eyes comes out and creates wonderful images.

Simpler backdrops, yet still with love for the detail, are available for babies to show more of that pure, cute baby newness.

I would love to create some adorable picture memories for you so please get in touch!  Delia.

I specialise in relaxed newborn photography sessions.  Turning moments into memories.  You want to remember how tiny they were, and all the little details.

My beautiful natural light studio located in Southbourne is designed for newborns and younger babies, where they, and you, can relax and let me take care of you all.  It’s a bright and calm space.

I also offer outdoor family photography.  For children older than two, it’s great to get outside, where they can have a play and be free, and we can get some lovely photos with a beautiful natural backdrop.

I’d describe myself as a very relaxed, informal and natural photographer.  Photoshoots are always on location or in home, not studio based, capturing couples and families, this puts people at ease straight away and helps to bring out and show their true selves so no forced smiles.  Creating a connection with people is so important to me, I want to tell your story in the most natural and honest way.

I love that photography can be a beautiful way to create a visual story that reflects your day.  I'm totally in love with what I do, I feel it’s my purpose to make people happy with what I love to do.

Emotive Newborn and Family Photography Dorset

Hi, I’m Sophie, Mother, Photographer, Entrepreneur and self-confessed Pinterest Addict, I’m completely style obsessed.

From newborn shoots to maternity imagery or family sessions, there’s so much magic in these little glimpses of motherhood, it’s a real passion but also a privilege to be part of your story.  For me, it’s not just about taking photographs, it’s about setting the scene.  Selecting the shades and the subtle colours, ensuring there’s texture and a timeless quality to the images – it’s about so much more than just holding a camera.  This is my happy place.

An experienced photographer in Poole, I specialise in photographing newborn babies and families.

Newborn photography is best done in the early days of your baby’s life, when they are sleepy and curled up.  Sessions at this age are completely guided by your baby and what makes them comfortable and settled.  I never rush and together we will create some beautiful portraits of your baby.

Family photography is fun and memorable!  I include the whole family and work with children of all ages to get the very best from them, so you go away with a fantastic gallery of images to choose from which really shows your personalities and gives you artwork you will love to display!

I’m here to capture you and your family in a natural, honest way.  To give you warm, nostalgic family photos filled with love, life and adventure.

Held in my cosy studio in Weymouth, my newborn sessions are a chance for you to escape the steady stream of relatives, naps and nappies.  There’ll be no pressure, no expectations, just a safe, comfortable space where you can forget the rest of the world and spend time together as a family.

My sessions are free-flowing, and completely baby-led.  I’ll invite you in, make you a drink and a snack, and then let the session unravel organically from there.  I may gently pose your child occasionally, but props are kept to a minimum so I can tell the story of your family in an honest way, and capture your tiny, beautiful little person just as they are.

My Maternity & Family Sessions are held outdoors along the beautiful coastlines or countryside we have here in Dorset.
