Hi I’m John. I specialise in Newborn photography, as well as baby photography, maternity photography and family photography. I offer mobile, or home photo shoots in Leeds and Bradford postcodes as well as the surrounding areas including Shipley, Wetherby, Tadcaster, Garforth, Ikley, Otley, Skipton, Settle and Keighley.
Becoming a Dad was a life changing experience for me. Gone was the weekend lie-in and in came the joy, laughter, tears, chaos and disorder that a newborn baby brings. Breakfast in bed became a necessity after just 2 hours of broken sleep and consisted of a hurried bowl of cornflakes at 4:00 am whilst praying our son Harry slept long enough to allow us a few more minutes of snatched sleep. Fast forward two years to the birth of our daughter Emily, and a now boisterous and highly active toddler meant that the candle was well and truly burning brightly at both ends!
I’m not like other newborn photographers as I’m mobile and offer a free no obligation home photo shoot across all Leeds and Bradford postcodes that typically last 2-4 hours. The pace of the newborn photo session will be determined by your baby’s needs and there will be plenty of time for feeding, changing and lots of cuddles. My clients really appreciate the convenience of a home newborn photo shoot, and having a specialist newborn photographer visit your home gives you a priceless opportunity for a few hours of relaxation.
Patience is the key with newborn photography, and my recent experiences as a new parent have helped me to settle even the most restless babies and capture some amazing newborn and baby photos. Those first moments with your new baby are so special and they grow so fast. I want to help you cherish these early memories and capture them so they can be enjoyed time and again for years to come.
The best age for newborn photographs is in the first 10 days, at this stage your little one is still sleepy and easier to pose, so it’s best to book your newborn photo shoot just after you’ve had your 20 week scan to avoid disappointment. Older brothers and sisters are welcome to join in, as are parents and grandparents to help welcome your little person into the world on the start of their amazing journey. I hold newborn safety in the highest regard, I have an enhanced DBS certificate, I’m fully insured and have undertaken pediatric first aid training for your peace of mind.
Many mums to be also like to remember their special time with a maternity photo shoot. Bump shoots also take place in the comfort of your own home and are available in Leeds, Bradford and surrounding areas. Maternity photo shoots can also involve children and partners to help create timeless images of your pregnancy, with the best time for a pregnancy photo shoot being between 28 and 35 weeks. A maternity photo shoot is a very personal thing and it’s totally up to you as to how you show off your bump and who else you include in your images.
Some of my favourite photos have come from older baby & toddler photo shoots so if your babies & children are a little older, then don’t worry as it’s never too late to capture great images of your little ones. An older baby photo shoot, or a toddler photo shoot is a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone and they’re a great way to capture your baby’s growing personality. Children’s photo shoots also take place in your own home, saving you the hardship of leaving the house with little ones in tow. Toddler & Children’s photo shoots are available in your home, in all Leeds and Bradford areas.
As our families grow and we get caught up in the complexity and pace of modern life, and the opportunities to capture a moment in time as a family become increasingly rare. Blink and 5 years have passed! It’s so important to make a record of your family as it develops. We’re experienced family photographers and our family photo shoots also takes place in your home. Even with older children this makes your life easier as instead of spending your hard earned time off sat in traffic to visit a photo studio, we can come to you to take your family portraits instead. I offer home or mobile family photo shoots throughout all Leeds and Bradford postcodes.
I also offer handmade impressions or castings of your little one’s hand and feet which can be framed alongside our amazing photographs, or displayed alone. These beautiful impressions of your little one’s hands and feet, capture every crease and fold and serve as a permanent reminder of just how tiny your new baby is. Baby hand and feet impressions or castings are available in many combinations of hands and feet, and can also include brothers and sisters. Impressions are also taken in your home for added convenience, and appointments are available throughout all Leeds and Bradford postcodes.
If you’re looking for maternity, newborn, baby, toddler or family photography in and around Leeds & Bradford then I’d love the opportunity to create some amazing images for you that you can treasure forever and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
