I love being a photographer

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

I especially love newborn 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!) I have two gorgeous daughters of my own and a pup who gets me out of the house and keeps me fit!

My aim is to offer un-rivaled customer service and a personal, individual approach to photographing your family. After all, 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.

Kind words

Emma provided a warm, relaxed atmosphere and was so patient and gentle with both our baby and our 6 year old. The photos are beautiful and we couldn't be more pleased.
