Welcome to Capture the Light Photography

Your perfect little newborn is tiny for such a short time, Very soon, they will be sitting and playing with toys, and then in the blink of an eye they are taking their first, wobbly steps.

Perfect moments are so fleeting. You can capture these to treasure forever with beautiful photography of important milestones in your baby's life.

I am an experienced, specialist maternity, baby and child photographer in Olney. Located conveniently close to Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. My small and cosy studio is designed with parents and small children in mind to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.


About Capture the Light

Newborn photographer Bedford

Hi -  I'm Emma. I'm a professional newborn, child and family photographer in Olney, within easy reach of Bedford, Northampton, Milton Keynes and surrounding villages. I simply love my job. Photography is a part of me and I can't imagine a time when I won't want to take photographs.

I've been a professional photographer for 12 years and have done this long enough to know a lot about photography. I also know that I'll never, ever stop learning new and wonderful things. Photography will, for me, always be a work-in-progress.

I especially love new babies. It's a joy and a privilege to be asked to capture such unique photographs of your most precious new arrival. Newborn photography involves a lot of patience - something that I have loads of - and quite a lot of cuddles - which are the best bit!

My aim is to offer a wonderful experience that you will enjoy, wonderful customer service and a personal, individual approach to photographing your family. You are completely unique so your images should be, too! I want your portraits to reflect the real you, to capture the moment in a photograph and to create artwork that you will enjoy and smile about for many, many years.

Photographic art is an important record of precious memories. And it is my absolute honour to be able to help you to create them.

I can’t recommend Emma at Capture the Light enough!! She’s amazing with children & tiny babies and totally captured what we wanted.
As a family we all felt totally comfortable and at ease and Emma really managed to capture that in the images.

Emma is amazing! We could not have asked for anything better. She made sure she knew all about our eldest daughter too as wanted to include her in our newborn photos. My 3 year old absolutely loved Emma. We are so pleased with all of our photos, they are perfect
