Family Photographer in Leeds | Best of 2017

That’s me; a family photographer in Leeds. Or near Leeds, if we’re being specific. And maternity photographer for that matter. And newborn photographer. And family photographer. And photographer of munchkins of all ages, shapes and sizes!

Here it is as promised – a selection of my favourite maternity, newborn, baby and family photographs from 2017. I met so many lovely families last year, and I got to catch up with some old favourites! I revisited some of my favourite photo locations, found some new ones, and took over a few family homes on more inclement days!

I made a big change to the way I photograph newborn babies in 2017. Instead of the studio-style newborn shoots with lots of cute photos of tiny naked babies curled up in baskets and things, I moved towards a more natural “lifestyle” approach. So lots more relaxed photos of newborns having cuddles at home with mum and dad, and less bobble hats and miniature suitcases! :-D. I still love to capture tiny babies on their own – if they will agree to being put down – but one of the bonuses of this kind of shoot is that little ones don’t necessarily have to be naked or even asleep for the photos, which I find they much prefer (though it’s fine to request both of those things!). It was a tough decision for me to make in some ways, because I do still love a curled-up-newborn shot (and a good prop hunt!), but I’ve found this kind of shoot to be so much easier on baby, and on mum and dad! And actually when I look at the photos I have of my own little girl in those early weeks it’s not the ones of her asleep in a basket that mean the most to me. It’s the ones where she zonked out on my tummy, or has a milky face, or is squeezing my finger.

So, on with the photos! As always my style is pretty relaxed and informal – no elaborate posing, just families together being themselves, having a great time, with me there to capture it. My obsession with tiny toes continues into another year, and is joined by a new one actually – baby yawns!

If you’re looking for a family photographer in Leeds, or Yorkshire in general for that matter, then please do get in touch to find out more or arrange a shoot! x

I'm Laura. Oh, hey!

PHOTOGRAPHER.

STORYTELLER.

MOTHER.

FLORAL ADDICT.

I live near Ilkley with my slightly* nutty 4 year old Rose, and I have had the honour of photographing weddings and families for 6 years now. I genuinely cannot believe how lucky I am that I get to call this my job.

*I say slightly, she recently told me that traffic lights are the bane of her life, and she names everything "Cantameen". Send help!

I love photographing people. Whether it's your wedding day, you're expecting or have just had a baby, or you simply want to capture your loved ones the way they are right now, my aim is to document unique moments in time to create a beautiful set of images that you will treasure for many years to come. My style combines photojournalism with beautiful portraits, and my fun and relaxed approach makes you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera – I want you to actually enjoy having your photograph taken!

Although I’m based near Ilkley I cover all of Yorkshire and I’m actually happy to travel anywhere for weddings and portrait shoots. So if you have any questions then please get in touch using one of my contact forms. In the meantime, grab a cuppa and browse through my wedding or portrait galleries, or take a look at my most recent work on the blog

I can't wait to hear from you x
