what is important to you...

I strongly believe in reminding you, within the chaos of family life, just how important your family is to you, so that each day when you look at your photographs on your wall, all your cares and worries just fall away and you are reminded of the joy and love that having a family brings. There is nothing more important than having printed tangible photographs of your family. I have been photographing babies for 10 years and providing clients with a transformational experience and unique artwork.

Kind words

"Patient and professional"

"For a first time mum with no experience of photoshoots at all Emma made us feel so relaxed. Considering my son decided to be very uncooperative with sleep, feeding and making a mess Emma was still able to get amazing photos and did so with such patience and professionalism, at no point did we feel rushed. Was such a lovely first time experience, thank you so much." Claire, Watford
