Family Photographer in Yorkshire | Best of 2016

family photographer in yorkshire | leeds | harrogate | york | Ilkley

I have met so many gorgeous families and babies this year! I consider myself very lucky indeed to be allowed to capture these precious moments; the days may seem slow but the years go by very quickly when you have a little one! I know from watching my own little girl over the past three years that babies and children change in an instant, and it’s so wonderful to be able to capture them as they grow. I really love it when a family books me in for two or more shoots to capture their baby’s first year. It’s amazing to see the changes that they go through and I get so excited when I’m going back to see them again. I’m also so happy that some people come back to me for a shoot once a year to document their family, it means so much to me!

All of my portrait shoots are very relaxed and natural; I want to see you guys interacting and capture you as you are in that moment. I should say that by relaxed I mean there’s not a lot of posing involved, I don’t mean that you’ll get a rest! 😀 Shoots can take place at home (always in the case of newborns) or at an outdoor location – some of my favourites are Roundhay Park, Temple Newsam, Valley Gardens in Harrogate, York city centre, Harlow Carr, Thorp Perrow and Fountains Abbey.

I’ve met and photographed families all across Yorkshire this year. And so I’ve gathered together my favourite images from all of my maternity, newborn, baby and family shoots from 2016. I’ve discovered new places and been back to old favourites. I’ve met brand new humans (some new to the world, some just new to me!) and caught up with last year’s new humans! I’ve tiptoed through the bluebells, stomped through the autumn leaves, squelched through muddy puddles, and loved every minute.

If you’re looking for a maternity, newborn, baby or Family photographer in Yorkshire then please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you! 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
