My name is Nicola,
a bespoke newborn photography specialist.

My passion for photographing babies began when my first child Isla was born 9 years ago.
It is a cliche but also true that precious moments are gone in the blink of an eye and I began to capture as many as possible from then on.

I am now truly privileged to photograph newborn babies for a living. I love what I do and to be able to spend time with a newborn baby and its parents
during the first few weeks is magical.

I live with my husband and two other daughters
in Chester.
