Get to know me
I am a mobile portrait photographer and bring my studio to your home – you don’t need a lot of space I can work in pretty small areas! It makes it a bit easier for you with little ones, and you can be in the comfort of your own home throughout the photo shoot. I specialise in newborn baby and family photography and just love working with little ones. I am a mum to 4 little people so I understand how precious they are – newborn safety is something I pride myself in when working with such young babies and families.

How does it work?
- I will arrive at your home at an agreed time and set up my studio, whilst you give baby a feed. Your session will last 2 – 3 hours, depending on how baby is.
- I will not rush your baby and I follow their lead when posing. I allow sufficient time as newborn baby’s sleep and mood can be unpredictable!
- Your baby is the main focal point of the session…I use minimal props and outfits to ensure your images are natural and timeless, and all about your baby.
- However, I am more than happy to include any props which you may have and wish to use. I will bring a selection of products for you to view and to help you choose the best look for your home.
Examples of beautiful framed photos
All of our images are printed onto the best quality paper that are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Using state of the art print technology. I work closely with our in house framing unit to produce specialist wall art for homes. Everything is made to order and to a fine art standard, you can be sure of the very best hand crafted products. I offer a beautiful range of designs to compliment your home; bespoke frames, impression frames, acrylics, canvas, fine art frames and the stunning alumini range for that extra wow factor. I do also offer beautiful photo books and digital images.
Please contact me via the form for the full list of framed products.
Baby Hand & Feet Impressions
Our impression range is also especially beautiful, capturing every line and crease of their tiny hands and feet in a 3d cast. Photography for little People are experts at taking impressions of children’s hands and feet, the youngest baby to have their impressions taken was just hours new. Your baby’s hand prints framed start at just £99.
Baby Photography Pricing
I don’t charge for the home session itself. The photo shoot is included within the price of the products. Should you however wish to order anything there is a minimum order fee of £159. A £45 non refundable retainer is required in order to secure your booking.
This will be deducted from your final order.
When is the best time to book & get newborn or baby photos taken ?
The best age for your newborn shoot is between 3 and 10 days new. What I do with bumps is pencil in your due date as I am only able to take a certain amount of newborn bookings each month and then we can firm up a date and time when baby arrives. Many families book their newborn session in following their 20 week scan. However if you have not managed to book in advance I am fairly flexible and often able to fit in last minute bookings for newborns.
Maternity photo shoots
Pregnancy is such a special time and something to be treasured, although many women may not feel amazing at the time – capturing the connection between mother and baby before they even make an appearance is a great way to celebrate your amazing achievement, and to enable you to remember this special time.
The best time for your maternity shoot to take place is between 32 and 36 weeks pregnant. At this stage your bump will be nice and round and you will hopefully still have some energy and be able to move around fairly easily! Partners and children are welcome to take part in the shoot. Don’t worry if you feel self-conscious – there are many different ways to capture your bump.
As with the newborn photo shoot, I ask for a £45 deposit to secure your booking. I gift a free 10 image pocket book when a maternity and newborn shoot are booked together.
Sibling and family photographs
Siblings are more than welcome to take part in both maternity and newborn sessions – and I love to capture family portraits within your sessions.
The first family photograph with a new family member is so important; and siblings photographed with their newborn baby brother or sister are my favourite image to capture!
I also take bookings for other baby milestones – sitter, first birthday and older children and family portraits too.
“Jo is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She was amazing with my little boy. The photos were beautiful, we got a few canvases and a hand print frame, all were of really good quality. I would recommend Jo to anyone and am looking forward to seeing her again for my little ones first birthday.”
“I’ve just received my photos from Jo today, they are amazing. I can’t thank Jo enough, she is a lovely woman with a special talent 😊
Jo was patient, friendly and professional, I would definitely recommended her.
