baby photography in halifax, leeds, bradford, Huddersfield, west yorkshire


Once your baby is old enough to sit safely unaided, they're at a great age to capture their beaming happy smiles and growing personality. Ideally done before they can crawl (although this is not essential!) these sessions are fun and relaxed, and although never rushed, don't last too long for your baby. You can choose from a variety of backdrops and setups, and bring along a selection of outfits for your baby to wear. Of course, siblings are very welcome and you can join your children in the images too if you like.


The studio is based on a smallholding just outside Halifax, and is a dedicated space in my home. Dating back to the 17th century, it benefits from an exposed stone wall and floor which are unique and make great backdrops for your images. Enjoy a selection of backdrops, setups and props in a lovely relaxed and warm environment.

Step One Booking.png

My sitter shoots are suitable for babies from 6 months old, who are strong enough to sit up comfortably unaided without toppling over. It's worth waiting until your little one's back is strong enough for them to sit up straight - they'll be much happier during the shoot and capturing those big beaming baby smiles will be much easier. Often around 7 months of age is a good time, but I can photograph babies in the studio until they start walking - after this I'd definitely recommend an outdoor shoot so they can happily wander freely about!

If your baby is approaching the age where they can sit up it's a good idea to get booked in. If they're not quite ready in the week or so before your shoot we can postpone - every baby is different and I'm happy to wait until the time is right.

Deposit £95.png

A deposit of £95 is payable upon booking to secure your shoot.

It is redeemable against any Package or Collection at your viewing appointment, and my sitter packages start at £195.

Step Two Consultation.png

Once you're booked in we'll have a chat over the phone to discuss your preferences for your images and I'll let you know what to expect on the day of your shoot. This is a great opportunity to say hello before your shoot, and you can ask any questions you like about anything to do with your shoot, your viewing appointment or my Packages & Collections.

step 3 your session.png

You'll arrive at my warm & welcoming studio on the morning of your shoot, and I will create some beautiful images of your baby in line with your preferences and choices of backdrops, props and accessories.

Your baby's shoot will be really relaxed, with plenty of time for a few different outfits and backdrops, and even singing a few nursery rhymes to make your baby smile! The sessions last up to 90 minutes, though often they are faster than that - it totally depends on your baby and how long he or she is happy to sit for. You're welcome to bring along your baby's siblings and be in some of the images yourself if you like - just let me know your preferences.

Step four viewing.png

Usually 2-3 weeks after your shoot, I'll invite you back to the studio to view your finished gallery. First you'll enjoy an HD slideshow, and your images will be presented as 6x4 prints to help you decide on your favourites.

During your viewing you can browse my studio samples, and I can assist offer advice on the size and arrangements of images for products, and which images work well together for example.

Your viewing appointment is not a high-pressure sales event - that's just not my style. You may already know which Collection or Package you'd like, or you may prefer to wait until you've seen your images and know how many you can't live without - it's just up to you.

step 5 delivery.png

Your chosen Package or Collection will be quality-checked by myself and sustainably & beautifully wrapped.

In the vast majority of cases, your items will be hand-delivered by me at a time to suit you.
