I specialise in beautiful, timeless portrait photography of babies and children, and particularly enjoy creating images of children in a more thoughtful and reflective way.  My unique style of photography has won over twenty national awards.

I have worked as a children’s photographer for 30 years so I am experienced in bringing out the very best in your child.  My main objective in every photographic session is to create images of your child that you will love and I always tailor the session to your child’s personality.

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.

I specialise in relaxed at home newborn photography sessions.  My ‘in home’ sessions work particularly well for newborns and younger babies, where they, and you, are relaxed.  I come to you and the session is led by baby.

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 am a family, portrait and event photographer based in BH17.

I like to capture images which visually tell a story.  I take on a documentary approach, providing relaxed and natural images, which capture genuine interactions and moments as they unfold.

All my family sessions use natural light and primarily take place outdoors but can also take place in your own home.

I have a variety of packages available, including maternity and newborn, families, couples, weddings, and also mini sessions.
