For Hampshire families looking for non-traditional newborn photography that is

EMOTIVE & AUTHENTIC

Classic, Timeless & Natural Photos of Your Baby.

I specialise in natural newborn photography in Hampshire with a warm, organic and raw style. No props- just organic outfits and blankets to put the main focus on your precious newborn. Sessions are held in my Southampton-based studio, outdoors in the New Forest or in your Hampshire home. I want to tell your story so that you remember all the little moments while in the blur of sleepless nights, milk-stained clothes and endless nappy changes.

I’m one of Hampshire’s leading newborn photographers and have photographed over 1500 newborns in the span of my 10 year career! I’m so experienced with soothing and calming newborns that all you need to do during the session is feed baby, I even change nappies!

I focus on natural, unposed images of baby and your family as I want your images to represent memories that you can go back to over and over because one day you will be wondering just how it was possible that they once fit in your arms.

Canadian. Chai-Latte Addict. Baby Whisperer.

As a mum to two little ones (Ondine- 4 yrs & Rothko- 19mths), I’ve realised natural genuine moments are the most precious and timeless. I had vast experience with posed newborn photography with props but as soon as my first was born I realised that I just didn’t want to hang those bright images with props on my walls.

When we moved to Southampton a few years ago, I went through a huge photography style change and I discovered my love for lifestyle and natural newborn photography. I love capturing your authentic memories and helping to tell the story of the start of your precious new family.

When choosing your Hampshire newborn photographer please make sure they are trained in newborn safety, experienced with newborns and insured. I’ve been a newborn photographer for over 10 years and teach newborn photography to other photographers due to my years of experience and skill. With years of experience, I’m an expert at soothing your little one and you can rest assured your baby is in safe hands. Safe posing is my priority.

It is important to secure your session early as I book a very limited amount of newborns per month to allow for flexibility with early and late births. Baby already here? Please contact me as I may have last minute availability!

Come to my Hampshire Newborn Studio – a cosy, boho, natural light filled space in Southampton (SO15).


We loved our shoot with Kirstin, she made us feel so relaxed and was great with our baby making him laugh all the way through. The results were incredible! A really special documentation of our family we couldn’t do ourselves. We upgraded our shoot to purchase more pictures as we couldn’t possibly choose they were all so good.”

01.

When do I book a newborn photography session?

It is best to book your Hampshire newborn photography session after your 12 or 20-week scan so that you are prepared and have reserved a session around your due date. If baby has already arrived, don’t worry! Send me a quick email and I’ll do my best to fit you in!

When baby arrives time truly flies and you may find you have left it too late as newborn photographers may be booked up. Newborns are best photographed under two weeks old (as they are at their teeniest and sleepiest which makes for an easier session) so time really does get away from you in those first few weeks as you are busy with a flurry of visitors and getting used to a new routine.

Having your newborn session booked early is one less thing to worry about when baby arrives! 

02.

Do you offer clothing for the sessions?

One of the benefits of using a professional Hampshire newborn photographer is the use of a Client Closet. I have a lovely collection of dresses for mum and outfits for baby that are carefully selected from high-quality vendors.
Each piece is selected because they are flattering for family or maternity sessions and suit the warm, organic vibe of my images.

I have a wide array of baby outfits up until one year old that include hand-knitted rompers, bonnets, nappie covers, blankets and wraps. My Client Closet baby outfits have a lovely organic look to them and suit the organic, pure and natural style of my photography. 

The Client Closet takes the guess-work out of planning what to wear for your family photography session and makes life easier for you as you can select from my gallery of all the beautiful outfits I have before your session.

03.

Where will my newborn photography session take place?

My Hampshire newborn photography sessions can be held in my Southampton studio or your Hampshire home (for an additional charge)–I travel to newborn shoots in many areas of Hampshire like the New Forest, Southampton, Winchester, Totton, Romsey, Lymington and Portsmouth.

04.

When should I book a maternity session?

I recommend photographing your bump around 30-35 weeks pregnant.

05.

Do you offer “Bump to Baby” packages?

Yes! I have a Maternity & Newborn Session package that captures you pregnant and later when baby is here. I think maternity sessions are so important as I find so many women regret not having a maternity session because they felt like they were too uncomfortable with the changes to their body or they didn’t feel well.

Yet it is so important to capture the amazing miracle that your body is creating and celebrate the life you are bringing into this world. Having a professional maternity session helps capture you in your most flattering light and celebrates the anticipation and excitement of baby arriving soon.

Maternity photography in Hampshire is best photographed from 32-25 weeks and can be photographed in your Hampshire home, outdoors anywhere in Hampshire (there are so many amazing spots in the New Forest from the seaside to gorgeous forest) or in my Southampton lifestyle studio. 

06.

What if my newborn cries or is awake the entire session?

Your newborn has just arrived and is still so small and dependent on you, of course they will cry at some point during the session and that is completely okay! I have 10 years of experience with newborns and am experienced with all temperaments of newborns.

I have vast experiencing in soothing babies and have many tricks up my sleeve to help the session go smoothly. The beauty of a natural newborn session is that it doesn’t matter if baby is awake or asleep the whole session!

We just capture them as they are and how they are happy to be! Natural newborn photography is all about capturing baby yawns, adorable awake expressions and baby snuggled up to mum and dad. I never force moments, a newborn session just involves lots of baby cuddles so that they are happy and feel safe!
