Relaxed & Authentic Newborn and Family Photographer

who's behind the lens 

Welcome, take a seat, grab a tea (or coffee) and take 5 minutes to yourself… okay who I am kidding? Take 3 minutes then get interrupted by a small child who needs a snack, wee, bum wiping, or *insert other annoying habits* 

I’ll keep this short, because I know time is always against us. 


I’m Carley, or “MUM!!!” I have 3 children and I live with my VERY patient Fiancé (woo, newly engaged, it’s still a novelty) in our “do-er upper” Victorian home in Southampton. I seem to spend my whole life tiding the house. We moved to a bigger house in December last year thinking it would get easier, it didn’t! There's more surface area to clean and my children have perfected the art of dumping crap into every room!! 


I am in love with my job, I honestly couldn’t love what I do any more. It was my dream to become a photographer since my eldest was born 12 years ago and I still pinch myself that this is what I do. The privilege of being able to capture your family is never lost on me. 


I am hoping you have landed here because you want some new beautiful Newborn, Maternity or up to date family photos? Am I the right photographer for you? I hope so, but I know we all have different tastes. If you are looking for everyone perfectly posed, sitting still and looking down my lens chances are I am not the right photographer for you. 


I want my photos to be of you all, snuggling, laughing and just playing together as a family. I want you to feel as relaxed as possible. My aim is always to create beautiful, timeless but curated photographs of your family 

My photos will tell your story, I want to capture you when you are feeling relaxed, comfortable and doing what you love. I only want genuine, real emotions. Buckets of love and laughter. 


Families who chose me are creative, they yearn to press pause on life, to be able to freeze this time in their life, just for a day. To soak in the love of their children and have their story recorded in such a way that even in 20 years from now they will still be able to remember these moments like they were yesterday. 


If you think we’re a match, I’d love to hear from you.
