“I cannot praise Heather enough for the gorgeous newborn photos we had taken thanks to my lovely friend who bought us a Gift  Voucher.  Heather made us feel totally at ease, and our baby soon settled as soon as he was Heather’s arms. 

After the photo shoot, we were always kept up to date with the progress of our pictures, and when it came to viewing them; we kept them all.   We’re so grateful for the fantastic images Heather captured that we can keep forever.  I cannot thank her enough.

See you in a year for Jesse’s first cake smash!”   –  Beth & Baby Jesse

I’m Heather, the photographer behind the award-winning Heather Elliott Photography based in Cleckheaton. I’m easily reached from Leeds, Bradford, Halifax and Wakefield. I’m a trained, insured, experienced newborn photographer and also love to photograph babies, maternity, children and families. Ive been mentored by some of the countrys top newborn photographers and I’ve worked very hard to be among the best in my field.

The choice to specialise in newborn photography was easy

I started to specialise in photographing newborn babies and children about 9 years agoHaving taken family photos  through out my children growing up and taking arty holiday landscape snaps, I found my calling when I went on a newborn photography course,  from then on I knew I wanted to specialise.

They are only small for such a short period of time and very soon you will forget how small they were. Button noses, peachy fluff on their little ears, tiny toes, and fingers.  Such a precious time, never to be repeated. This may even be the first time you have actually sat for a few hours with nothing to do since your one little arrived.  All too soon, they will be up and running around and venturing into the big wide world around them.

So why chose me to take your precious photographs?

I have been taking newborn photos for nearly 9 years now. I am fully insured and regularly undertake Baby First Aid courses to keep myself up to date with training and safety, your little precious bundle is the most important thing for me to keep safe throughout our sessions.

My favourite way to record your little one’s first year is with my Bump to Birthday Photography. I want to capture all those precious memorable times for you and your family for generations to look at. We all have lots of photos on our phones, but the real value in a portrait is when it is displayed on your wall and enjoyed every day. Above all else, I want you to enjoy the experience of watching me work my magic with your little ones.

So come and relax in my comfortable photography studio in Cleckheaton, which is easily reached from both Leeds and Bradford, lets have a coffee and chat about your session!


Together let’s capture this moment in time with images that you will treasure for a lifetime.

“There is freedom waiting for you,

Upon the breezes of the sky,

And you ask “what if I fall”?

But,  Oh my darling

What if you fly?
