Gorgeous newborn photoshoots near Manchester

Hello - I have been waiting for you.

Yes, you. I am so glad you found me. Because I may well be your newborn photographer and we need to talk.

Are you a parent to be or a new mother, living in or near Manchester & feeling completely overwhelmed by it all? Looking for a newborn photographer is supposed to be the fun bit and as soon as you start googling "I'm newborn photoshoot near Manchester" you suddenly get endless pages of newborn photographers beckoning for your attention.

So let me break it down for you and help you decide if I am the newborn photographer for you.

What are the top 5 things you should be looking for in a Newborn Photographer in Manchester?

  • Experience - did you know literally anyone can pick up a camera and start photographing newborns? That means, someone with no experience in handling babies could be picking up your baby and positioning/posing them with little hands on ability to do it safely. Here at Light of My Life Baby Photography I have been photographing babies since 2017 and before that I owned a newborn and baby swimming business for 3 years and had the joys of taking newborns for their first swim.

Babies are the best and I appreciate they are your absolute everything. Let me help you remember these moments forever.

  • Originality - Back when I launched in 2017, I had fallen in love with natural newborn photography. I had seen photographers in London and LA photographing babies in a timeless simple way and simply adored that all attention was on baby. I trained with Little White Photography and other world class photographers and did my research in the local area. There was no one else doing it. I saw a gap in the market and realised that if I loved this beautiful simple pure style - you Manchester parents would too. I am always trying to develop my craft and move my style on but at the heart of it is simplicity and your newborn. Nowadays the market is overrun with newborn photographers and all copying the next. If you want a photographer that is forward thinking, original and isn't simply a carbon copy of the next, then I'm your girl.

  • Style - As I said earlier, googling "Manchester Newborn Photographers" will give you a bit of a headache quite possibly as you work your way through a list of photographers and didn't style. Research what style will mean something to you now and through the years. For me, that is a natural and neutral style that frames your baby perfectly. There are a lot of amazing photographers to choose from and you need to know what style is going to warm your heart forever.

If you love simplicity and want your baby to be at the centre of each image without all those weird and wonderful awkward poses - then we could be a really good mix.

  • Price - I get why people do it but googling "cheap Manchester newborn photographers" isn't going to get you the best newborn photographer. If someone is cheap then please question why. Do you want someone who isn't getting paid much for doing it to be handling your baby? Would you google "cheap nurseries?". No, because you recognise that the best ones with the best facilities and the best experience will demand a fee that recognises this.

  • Portfolio - Ensure that you have a good look around the photographers instagram and website. Do you see lots of different babies and families? Or is it just a few of the same baby? This would tell me that the photographer has little experience or actually doesn't have a range of experience and great images to share.

Natural newborn photoshoots near Manchester

Hang on, you may be asking more about just what is natural newborn photography and why exactly has it been such a hit with young families in Manchester?

Natural newborn photography strips it all back to basics - to ensure that your newborn baby is the complete focus on the photoshoot. I do away with any props or fancy outfits and concentrate on creating a beautiful gallery of images for my clients where your eyes are immediately drawn to what is important - your baby.

My natural newborn photography sessions (near Manchester) are always photographed on clean simple white backdrops. I love white on babies as it is such a classic colour and I advise parents to bring baby's into the studio in gorgeous white sleep-suits. I find a lot of my clients, particular those of girls, don't want to define their baby with stereotypical colours and themes. By photographing them on white I feel like we are showing what a blank canvas they are. So many possibilities ahead of them.

Manchester Mums love my natural newborn photoshoots!

What makes me photoshoots different to many other photographers in and around Manchester, is that I don't pose your baby in the traditional newborn baby poses that you might have come to recognise over the years. For me, it doesn't speak the truth. I love to adapt my baby photoshoots for your baby. Making each session as unique as your child. I am not going to lie, a sleeping baby makes for a very relaxed and easy photoshoot for all involved! But actually when baby awakes it is lovely to capture those in-between moments. As you connect with your baby. As you settle them, as you breathe them in and as you look down and smile at them. These are the moments that make that session extra special. I always think that life is fast moving and if you don't slow down and document the important stuff, you may well forget it.

I am always honoured when I am chosen to to photograph a new life and a new member of your family. I am a newborn photographer based in Macclesfield, only 30 minutes from Manchester and so easily accessible off the A34. Whilst I get clients all over the county visiting me - virtually all my clients are willing to travel as they seek my style - I recognise that the closer I am to you, the better!

I wanted to be able to share with you this beautifully natural newborn baby gallery that I did a few months ago. My client wanted to document these very early precious memories with a natural newborn photoshoot in my dedicated baby photography studio near Manchester.
