They are only this little for such a little while, how will you remember?

My clients call me the baby whisperer, when you choose me as your newborn photographer you can relax knowing you and your beautiful baby are in expert hands.

Years Experience



I have over 9 years experience as a specialist newborn photographer, have undertaken expert training in the safe posing and handling of babies as well as being a Mummy myself to two beautiful boys. By choosing me as your newborn photographer you are putting your brand new baby in the hands of a professional. I work in a baby centred way, putting the comfort and safety of your baby first at all times.

The Beautiful Bairns studio has free on site parking, a big comfy sofa and all home comforts for you to enjoy! Log in to the wifi, enjoy a cup of tea (while its still hot!) and watch while I soothe your baby into beautiful poses for gorgeous images you will love forever.


Baby is boss in the studio! I only book one newborn a day so your session will never be rushed. Plenty of time for feeds and cuddles!


The studio has been designed with all the comforts of home. Choose from our extensive range of backdrops and accessories. So we can style your session to create beautiful images for your home!

What our customers say

Our photos are amazing! Rachael is so warm, welcoming and the photoshoot was so relaxed. She was very patient with our baby, even when he needed to be fed. We will be back to see Rachael again in the near future!

Baby is Boss in the Beautiful Bairns sh1dio!
Sessions are entirely baby led with plenty of time for feeds, cuddles and clean ups!

We will chat over a cuppa and choose the perfect olour palette for your images so they look beautiful when on display in your home.

Then you can sit back, relax and watch as I get baby relaxed into a deep sleep and perfectly posed.


We will schedule your viewing & ordering appointment to take place around a week after your photoshoot.

All of your images will be expe1tly retouched for viewing and displayed in a slideshow.

We will work together to create the perfect package to suit your home and budget.

Your digital images will be ready to take home on the day.

Printed products will be shipped directly to your home or if you prefer we can have them delivered to the studio for you to collect at your convenience.


At the studio I have a huge selection of beautiful fabrics, hats, headbands, wraps and props.

For most images baby will be naked so there is no need to bring any clothing. If you prefer for baby to be covered we can do so using beautiful fabrics.

This way you can still see how small and delicate baby is without being swamped by baggy clothing.


Please complete all sections so that I can provide you with an accurate reply.

How to prepare your baby or toddler for the clocks going back

Woo! The clocks are going back. That means an EXTRA HOUR in bed! Unless of course like me you are a parent of a small child, then it typically doesn’t. In fact it probably means you'll be bleary eyed, staggering about in the dark at daft o'clock wondering what time it...
