Nicola comes to you, wherever you feel most comfortable, this could be in your home or out and about in the great outdoors, to document your family doing the things you enjoy and want to remember. No studio, no back drops, just a relaxed, enjoyable, unhurried photoshoot doing something fun, marking a milestone or just everyday moments such as ice cream in the park or cuddles on the sofa.

Sessions are ideal for creating group shots of you all, beautiful portraits of each individual and unposed documentary glimpses into your day to day life and laughter. Ideal for parents who never get in the picture and even for those who dislike having their photo taken.

Our Customer Reviews Review Business

    Anna Maher says:

    I had my bump & new born photoshoots with Nicola a few years ago with my first son. These photos and the memory of the shoots are greatly treasured. It’s always a joy to look back on these amazing images and see how much my son has grown and we have grown as a family. Nicola is fun, relaxed and a joy to be with on my shoots, she captures such fantastic moments in any setting (our house was being refurbished at the time of the new born shoot and she even made plain plastered walls look good!).

    Charlotte Wright says:

    Nicolas work is incredible. I booked Nicola for a outside shoot in the Didsbury Area with my family & 2nd baby. We chose a location which was sentimental & Nicola knew exactly how to capture the perfect shot in a natural way but current way. I get lots of compliments on my family photos in my home and on social media. Nicola has captured such special memories which we will cherish forever! Thank you Nicola.

    Charlotte says:

    I’m very lucky to have had Nicola capture some beautiful images of me pregnant with my second child. After a mentally difficult and uncertain pregnancy I felt nervous to embrace the moment.
    But Nicola was brilliant from start to finish, very understanding and encouraging. She guided me in how to position bump etc – as I’m not a natural in front of a camera.
    I’m so happy I have these pictures to cherish in years to come ♥️
