some kind words from my wonderful families….
My partner and I had a newborn shoot with Rachael at Beau Baby when our little girl, Isabella was just 14 days old. Having utilised the services Rachael provides previously (sadly under different circumstances) when she photographed our first Daughter for the charity Remember My Baby, we were already feeling very emotional but felt comfort from our connection.
When we first met Rachael, our initial nerves went away very quickly as she made us feel very welcome and totally at ease and the surroundings of her studio were calm, relaxed and warm for our newborn. Rachael was very gentle and professional with every pose she created with Isabella and went with the flow of her needs. When Isabella was hungry or needed a nappy change, Rachael would allow us to do this comfortably, whilst chatting away to us, making us laugh about the life of a newborn.
As a breastfeeding Mum, I was in the early days of learning to feed and Rachael was so supportive and friendly, making me feel so relaxed.
At Rachael’s studio, she had all the props we wanted and had a large array of different colour choices which she helped us choose what would be appropriate. She even sent us some backdrops we had requested, listening to our vision and everything we wanted and we also brought some of our own special props along, including a teddy that belonged to Isabella’s big sister. Seeing Rachael photograph Isabella was so heartwarming and both Mummy and Daddy couldn’t stop smiling the whole time we were there. A few tears were shed by all of us, including Rachael and we felt immensely proud of our beautiful little girl.
The whole session was simply wonderful and Rachael captured the most beautiful images of Isabella, including all the important little details which as parents will be treasured forever.
Thank you so much for the most amazing experience, which we will never forget. We would highly recommend booking a session with Rachael, as you will really treasure this experience for a lifetime. We definitely will come back to Rachael for future photographs of our family and Isabella.
We have been luckily enough to have Rachael capture our little boy in his first year. We started with a newborn shoot. Its tricky to watch someone handle your newborn baby in those early days but Rachel is just the baby whisperer and handle Alfie with love and care and gently rocked him and posed him. She was so calm and relaxing and made the shoot really enjoyable. We were so pleased with our images.
Fast forward a year, and we have just had a family lifestyle photo shoot and I have been blown away by the photos. The session was made really fun for Alfie. Rachael just went with the flow and captured Alfie in his elements. The weather wasn’t the best for photos but you cannot tell this at all in the images and Rachael has really worked her magic. I would highly recommend Rachael for her friendless, relaxed nature and her highly professional skills. Thank you once again Rachael
Thank you so much Rachael!
We are over the moon with our pictures. You made us feel really relaxed …Arthur clearly loves the experience as he slept through the whole thing!
You also captured my favourite picture of all time so for that I cannot recommend you enough! Everything came beautifully packaged and the prints are of super quality. We’ll definitely be back xxx
Rachael was absolutely amazing! Took my new baby girl just before Christmas for her photos. Rachael was amazing with her and myself and my husband and put us at ease and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos are incredible something that I will treasure forever. Can’t wait to come back for another session.
Rachael photographed our baby girl when she was just 12 days old.
Our daughter fought the tiredness and even after plenty of feeding still did not sleep very much. That was no issue for Rachael. She was very patient and gave us plenty of time to feed her, and when she wouldn’t sleep any more captured some great images with eyes open showing her little personality.
The experience was relaxing and Rachael was both friendly and professional throughout. We would highly recommend booking.
The pictures we received are absolutely amazing, we will treasure them forever. Thank you Rachael
Rachael did our shoot today and it was a lovely experience.
Ashton is 18 days old and she was brilliant with him, settling him and the photos look amazing. She has amazing attention to detail and looked after us all throughout the shoot. She made us feel welcome from the moment she opened the door. Can’t wait to see the end result and would highly recommend.
I have nothing but praise for Rachael! Patience is key in this industry and she has it in abundance!! The photos are stunning and to such a high quality- by far the best I’ve seen! This is my second visit to her beautiful home studio and every time it just gets better. Thank you for capturing some gorgeous photo’s of my little girl and for making it a truly memorable experience! X
Rachael is fantastic to work with, she has a package to suit every budget and is not pushy with regards to upgrading.
She is brilliant with babies and is patient with them while trying to capture that perfect moment. The finished images are really impressive, I can’t believe she manages to get so many good ones!
Can’t rate her highly enough. 4 of my friends have also used her for their babies and everyone was thrilled with her work.
Rachael did the most wonderful job of our sons newborn shoot, having little idea of what we actually wanted to achieve from the shoot Rachael really put us at ease and created the most beautiful shots for us to treasure of our little boy.
A beautiful home studio and a professional yet warm and friendly atmosphere was created instantly. We can’t wait to visit Rachael again in the future to capture more beautiful images. Thank you
