living with passion for photography

Specialising in the photography of newborns, toddlers and children I love to captures your little one’s first photographs, and as they grow, creates a beautiful memory of your baby’s first years.  “I’ve turned my passion for photography into the best job in the world”.


As a newborn baby stays in the foetal position for a very short time, it is the first 14 days that is the ideal window to captures baby. Ideally between 5 and 14 days.  Although this dates are preferable for the squishy images you see it’s not always practical, Mum may not be feeling too well, baby needs more care. Don’t worry I will still take newborn babies until they are around 10 weeks. Just please be aware that the poses are not always possible with older babies as they have filled out and more alert. If your baby is premature, the timings may change. So, book a consultation, by phone or come along to meet me, and you can both pencil in a date in the diary for your newborn baby session.


My studio is open to  all of my new clients to a complimentary consultation to discuss expectations, ideas, colour palette and to view her stunning collection of imagery, prints and wall art and to feel accustomed to the layout of the photography studio and enjoy a cup of Yorkshire tea or a mug of coffee.


So a little bit about me! Married to John for over 35 years; We have two daughters, Lauren and Beth. My love of photography started when I had my daughters, and at the time, the difficulty it was to find a baby photographer. Now many years later, I pride myself  of having been trained by the best and now specialises in photographing newborns, toddlers, maternity and children.


The photography studio is based in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, and I look forward to welcoming you to the Studio soon!


Heather was great with Kit gave him lots of attention and got him to settle.  The session went smoothly with thanks to her magic hands!  Highly recommend.
