Mini-Me Photography

I am a predominately a natural-light photographer offering custom photography, mainly studio based or "on location" shoots for those who do not like to be confined to a room. I photograph newborns as young as 1 day old , toddlers and children up to school age.​ Older children upon request.

​My interest in photography started at the age of 15 when I bought my first camera.  However, my passion with photography was realized after the birth of my son. This tiny creation has changed my world forever and I still find myself just watching him, fascinated with his expressions​ and funny mannerisms.

 I hold full public liabilty insurance,  have a current DBS (previously known as CRB) police check and I am also trained in pediatric first-aid.  In 2014 I became an approved member of BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photographer's Association) who monitor and promote safe practices amongst little ones. I have studied photography at college and whilst I found it interesting .... you can't teach passion and I hope that is what is protrayed in my work.  I am always excited to attend photography workshops specialising in babies, as it teaches safe practices and provides me with inspiration.  I customise most of my props so you will have something unique and original and use a profesional printing lab who offer innovitave and quality products.

​Whilst I really enjoy a good wedding or special events,  I have chosen to concentrate on babies only -  in order to provide a more bespoke and specialist service.  My aim is to capture the detail, special quirks and the love you have for these tiny people whist at the same time keeping baby safe and parents happy.

The Studio is naturally safe, childproof and smoke-free.  I offer full baby- changing and private feeding facilities.  Parking is free and unrestricted.  To enable the best possible service from Mini-Me Photography I only schedule one session per day.

 With a son of my own, I have developed the patience of a saint and understand that babies and toddlers can be unpredictable at times but we will work with it.  Time is built in for cuddles and feeding and I also recognise that some babies are more sensitive than others.  I will advise you beforehand on how to get the best out of your session, but in the eventuality of baby having a really bad day,  I am happy to offer a  complimentary half-hour shoot when he/she is in a better mood.

 I feel very lucky to have a profession that I love that allows me to re-experience the wonderous time of new life and growth.

​I look forward to meeting you soon. x
