Sophia Rose. A newborn shoot with a very special little girl.


Sophia Rose was just 8 weeks old when I met her.

She’s utterly gorgeous. She giggles and smiles brightly as soon as you chat to her. It’s the cutest.

All newborn shoots are special to me. It’s such an honour to be asked to photograph a new family member and share a little time with a newly made family.

But Sophia was doubly precious, because I already knew her mummy and daddy, having photographed their wedding celebrations at Harvey Nichols in Leeds some time before.

The couple had married secretly abroad ( how romantic is that?!) and returned home to a party with family and friends. I always remember it as a really funny lovely evening, full of happiness and excitement.

So it was SO wonderful to receive an email from Becky telling me they had become parents. Cue a photo shoot with the very beautiful Sophia Rose.

I’m not ashamed to say I was a bit teary editing these images. Sophia has wonderful parents, and it’s an honour to know them all.









Isn’t she utterly adorable? She is just so totally beautiful.

My love to Becky, Richard and Sophia. It’s an absolute joy to know you all. Thank you for asking me to record these memories for you. I wish you all much joy and peace as your new bundle of joy grows and changes. I know all too well how it will completely change your life and bring such happiness.
