Newborn, Baby and Family Photography in Gloucestershire

Being an experienced Newborn Photographer is such a rewarding and wonderful job.  Meeting so many families that have just started a new chapter in their lives, one that is so special.The newborn stage is precious, but sadly fades away too quickly.A newborn session ideally takes place within two weeks of birth.  Booking early is advisable.

My Baby Photography sessions capture the confident little sitter your baby has become.  The session takes place when your baby is six to nine months old.  The session is baby-led and time is spent settling your baby into my cosy studio.

A photo shoot is very personal and needs to reflect the essence of your family. I love seeing the freedom that the outdoors gives children.  The chance to run, climb and play. My approach is fun and relaxed. You and your family will have a great experience and beautiful natural images to look back on.



'To say that we are incredibly pleased with the results of our newborn photo shoot with Zoe would be an understatement. Zoe was so accommodating to us from the moment I first got in touch with her. We had the most wonderful morning in Zoe's studio, she looked after every need my baby girl had as well as mine! The results are so natural and really captured my daughters character even though she was only four weeks old. Zoe's standards are exceptional I can not recommend her more highly'. Hannah Hickman

A big thank you to Zoe for the fantastic service we received from Natural Essence. From start to finish the customer care was out standing. Zoe takes a huge amount of pride in her work and this shines through in the end product. We are so pleased with the collection of family photographs we have to display. We will be returning to Natural Essence in the future. Kate Plummer

'We are so thrilled with our recent newborn and family photos, which are displayed all over the house. Zoe photographed our first daughter which we loved, so of course we were going to back with our second baby. Zoe phoned us a couple of weeks before my partner's due date to talk us through the session so we knew what to expect, and gave advice about what to do that morning. We talked through colour scheme and props. It was so lovely to get some photos of both our girls, and Zoe was very patient with our toddler and we've got some beautiful photos of the two of them.Would highly recommend Zoe to everyone, and intend to re visit for a family shoot one day.'
