a little



It’s great to meet you.

Hi, My name is Rachel and I am a multi Award Winning professional photographer, specialising in pregnancy, newborn baby and family photography. I am a qualified Associateship member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and a Craftsman with The Guild of Photographers.

I won International Newborn Photographer of the Year in January 2022 with the MPA and also International Top 10 Maternity, Newborn and Baby Photographer with the Guild. I also placed second in the MaternIty Category of the Baby and Portrait awards show, all of which I am really proud of!

I run a home studio in Hatfield Heath in Essex, where I have a beautiful collection of high quality newborn props and backdrops for portraits. I love photography and love to have fun with my clients who share this passion; creating and delivering beautiful and timeless portraits.

 I also teach other photographers in the art of newborn and maternity photography through 1:1 training, speak at public events and offer training and workshops.

In addition to being a photographer, I am also Mummy to 2 beautiful girls, which gives me a head start over other photographers, especially when it comes to charming small children, not to mention the opportunity to photograph them at any given opportunity! My husband is also a photographer (and yes we are competitive!) and together we also run Expression Photography specialising in Wedding Photography..

I love Dairy Free (not through choice!) chocolate, a big mug of tea, walking miles through the Herts and Essex countryside, playing with my girls, horses, latin dancing and on long summer evenings, a cheeky glass of prosecco or two!
