Maternity & Newborn Family Sessions

Pregnancy is such a special time in a lady’s life and I am so passionate about capturing that gorgeous bump within a beautiful portrait. I have some stunning handmade dresses available and every lady has a glam makeover! The best time to have a shoot is between 28-35 weeks


Once your little one arrives, come back for a newborn & family portrait. Again, mum has a makeover (new Mums appreciate this most of all! As well as a choice of dresses and outfits to wear for the photoshoot. This takes the pressure off deciding what to wear and gives you the confidence to get in front of the camera so soon after giving birth. Obviously your new little one will be the star of the show, but I also believe that it is so important to have a family portrait at this time as well as some individual shots of your gorgeous new bundle. So while Mum’s having a makeover, I have various props and outfits to use for their photoshoot.

The fee for each session is £30 and includes the makeover & choice of dresses / outfits. Maternity full sessions are best suited when you want to include dads & siblings. Please get in touch for details of packages.

‘After having a horrendous pregnancy I was really anxious about having my photo taken but I really wanted to have some form of keepsake/memory of my bump and pregnancy and when I came across Rachel’s page and her stunning photographs I couldn’t help but book in a session. When communicating with Rachel I informed her of my worries and concerns and from first communication she put my mind at ease. At my maternity photoshoot I received such a beautiful makeover I felt totally transformed and having the selection of outfits to chose from provided by Rachel made the whole process a highly more relaxing and enchanting experience. During the shoot Rachel and her MUA were so welcoming and friendly and I instantly felt comfortable in Rachel’s home. Rachel guided me through the poses and shots without making me feel awkward and even encouraged me to do a nude maternity pic which is one of my favourites from the day! After receiving my photographs I was absolutely stunned at the results so much so that I booked another session for when baby arrived.

At my second shoot I was once again made to feel very welcomed and comfortable. Whilst the MUA transformed me from haggard tired mum to what felt like a super model, Rachel whisked my gorgeous little boy away for his half on the photoshoot which meant my photos were a total surprise when I received them and oh my was I blown away! The finished results from my mum and baby shoot had me in tears. I couldn’t believe how magical and special the photographs were and I am so grateful to Rachel and her team for making me feel so beautiful and confident during both my shoots and Rachel being so talented to be able to capture that in her photographs. I truly now have some gorgeous lifetime memories of my very own miracle baby’

I had the most amazing experience having a maternity session. Not only did I get my hair and makeup done, but had some absolutely fabulous outfits to wear to feel very glam. It’s been lovely to capture this moment of being pregnant with photos that I will treasure.
Can’t wait to return for a newborn photo session in the New Year.

I already had a fantastic experience with Rachel when I had a maternity shoot a couple of months ago, so I was excited to be seeing Rachel again for a newborn photo shoot with my husband. I had a lovely makeover and felt very pampered and I even got to wear a Ted Baker dress, which, for those that know me, Ted is my favourite style! Rachel was absolutely fantastic with Zachary – so gentle and calm with him and he seemed to love being swaddles and looked super cute! Rachel captured some truly memorable pictures of us as a family, as well as some Mum & Son, and Dad & Son shots, including one of them both wearing Liverpool outfits. I can’t recommend Rachel and Ruby Light Portraits enough – for both my maternity and newborn sessions she has been amazing, professional and the results have been stunning. I can’t wait to book more sessions in the future as Zac grows up (not too quickly I hope! so we can capture more memories’
