I specialise in bespoke baby, newborn, child and family photography for parents that want a collection of images of their baby, child or children with some family photos both indoors and outdoors. Your shoot can combine both indoor studio photos and outdoor photos to give you a collection of at least 20 excellent photos that I hope you will treasure for a lifetime. Of course you can choose to have just studio or just on location the choice is yours. I allow the whole day for each session so I am happy to fit around your requirements. 

As a Cotswold baby, Newborn and Family photographer I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful locations. I quite often use Westonbirt Arboretum as it is not far away from my studio and quiet towards the end of the day and early in the morning.  If you are not a member there then you will have to pay entry to get in.  


You can choose to have your Cotswolds Baby Photography session at a location of your choice should you know of a pretty place that we have permission to use. 


I work with parents that are happy to give almost a whole day up to get these images. It does take time and a little energy. I can help with advise on organising outfits and also advise on keeping the children and babies happy during the shoot. It is very much a baby and child led photoshoot catering around their needs. I like to describe it as one very long picnic.

For newborn sessions these are taken most of the year indoors. The props are expensive as they are hand made for purpose. I have lots of background choices, beautiful wraps, animal outfits, delicate soft lace knitted blankets, head bands and plenty of baskets, buckets, beds and bowels to create some beautiful Newborn Baby Photography for you to treasure for a life time.


You do not need to bring anything but if you have a favourite blanket or perhaps something special to you we can try to incorporate it into a photo. The sessions are season inspired so the decorations and floral arrangements around the props tend to change according to season. As well as an abundance or artificial flowers in the garden I grow tulips and daffodils for the spring and roses and lavender for the summer. These can all be used in your session


You can let me know you colour preferences and if you prefer lighter or darker backdrops and I will incorporate you preferences in. If you don't like colour only neutral I can do many woodland inspired set ups. 

I also have a Winnie the Pooh and Beatrix Potter set ups which I expect to be very popular.

For older siblings I have a whole wardrobe full of clothes including Trish Scully Dresses in sizes 2 - 15,  boys shirts, trousers, shorts, braces and vest tops. Please let me know your childrens sizes before hand so I know when I work on your session plan. 

For babies I have some knitted rompers and many dresses that you can borrow but you are more then welcome to bring some extra clothing such as dungarees and any rompers or dresses you have.

For all sessions I print out a session plan according to the information you have given me before hand. We go though this when you arrive to check you are happy with all the set ups and props. 

My studio is located just outside Malmesbury in Wiltshire in the Cotswolds. It is my converted home. It is warm spacious and comfortable. You will certainly feel relaxed here. I have all the facilities you will need for your newborn, baby or children's photography session. There is a garden full of toys for older children to play, a play room, television and wifi and a park just round the corner. There is also a pub near by which many dads have wished to escape too.  

Because my photo sessions are very personal and bespoke I allow for the whole day. On average a single photoshoot starts at around 10.30 and finishes by 4.00 

I will edit as many as there are good ones. I aim to get at least 20 excellent ones but more often than not we get many more. Although it is hard work it is worth it in the long run and we can work together to make it as fun as possible for everyone.


I love children and babies and the creative challenge of photographing them. It helps me if I can share the photos we take on my website and social media so please let me know if you are not happy with this during or prior to your session.


A days bespoke photo shoot costs £100. This includes my time both on the day and editing after, use of all the props and editing all the images for you to choose from. This needs to be paid prior to your session by using the booking form below or by bank transfer (Please contact me for details). I am afraid I have had to many people not turn up or cancel the day before. I have to arrange child care 

 and obviously I keep that day free for you and not take another booking. I can no longer risk everyones time being wasted so it is important you pay the session fee before hand.  

After your session we will go though the photos together and you will select the final 20 images you would like edited. I will whats app them to you to check before I send the USB via post. The cost of the final images edited is £250. This needs to be paid on the day.  Unfortunately I have had one customer ruin it for everyone where I whats apped the images for her to check then she did not pay so now sadly I have to ask for the final payment to be made on the day of the session. Such a shame as it was the first time it has happened in three years!

My website and social media accounts are kept up to date with recent images. Please let me know when making your booking if you do not want your images used on my website or social media.

Please do not contact me asking for a discount or state you only want a few photos can I do anything cheaper. My rates are already more then fair. I am not interested in doing some quick snap shots for you I am only interested in creating some beautiful photography for you to treasure. My Photography is my art, your photos will represent my art. I want it to be the best! 

Professional Hair and Makeup can be arranged for an additional £40





You can book your session now online. I will contact you to arrange a date and time with you after. Don't worry I always have room to fit everyone in. Even with Newborns sessions I can find a free day in the two week period.

If the weather is bad on the day we arrange we will continue and take the studio photos and arrange another day at no extra cost to do the locations photos.  If you don't want to book on line your can book by phone or email.

Joanna took some incredible photos for us that we will treasure forever. We got lots of different poses, including a few family shots and they look amazing on the wall. We had a really nice day with her, she is so welcoming and patient. She sent us the pictures the next day so very quick turnaround. Can’t recommend highly enough.
One word of warning - the room is very warm as it needs to be for baby so dress appropriately!

We went to get our newborn pictures done a few weeks back, Jo was amazing from the moment I had contacted her to the lead up to the photo shoot and on the day itself. Jo is very passionate in her photography, confident and very patient. I had my other 2 children with me who are 3 years old and 6 years old and she had accommodate them so well they were kept busy with toys books there was a whole room dedicated for them
to play, this made the photoShoot and day go so much more easier. Our picture came

We traveled to Joanna for a photoshoot for my newborn baby girl from Oxford. I am a first time mum and I was rather anxious about what to expect and how I could cope with someone else holding her and moving her around so much. I was pleasantly pleased with the experience I had. Joanna was very welcoming, warm and experienced. She knew exactly what I was feeling and how to make the whole thing enjoyable for us whilst keeping my baby happy the whole time. The results I got were amazing. She put so much effort in to each prop and set up. Also made sure she got the best photo not rushing at any point. I would night recommend her services and I will definitely be using them again myself.

We had a lovely pregnancy photoshoot in March 2019. Joanna was really kind, professional and took breathtaking photos. We had photos taken in the studio and outside too. Even my partner told the photoshoot was fun and was much better than he expected. She finished the photos really quick and shared it with us. She made us so comfortable, so we had photos in a silk material nude taken. 
I would go back to Joanna anytime if I would like gorgeous photos

I can't express how grateful I am to Joanna, she took so much time and effort preparing ideas for our maternity photo shoot. The final pictures completely blew me away, Joanna has such an eye for capturing the best poses and lighting and the photos came out absolutely stunning. I am so pleased with them and very happy we found such a talented photographer to capture this treasured time in our lives, she was so easy to get along with and we had great communication via email before the photo shoot and during the shoot she made me feel so comfortable, really genuinely lovely lady and super talented. I can't wait for our newborn photo shoot in January. Thanks Joanna for all your hard work, our family and friends have all commented on how outstanding your pictures are.

We would highly recommend Jo after having our newborn photo shoot with her this week. We loved every single idea she had planned for the session, the autumnal theme was perfect to celebrate our autumnal baby and it just happens to be my favourite season! Not only were her ideas amazing, her attention to detail perfect and the set ups stunning, but she was so patient, friendly and lovely to work with. She gave up her day for us and there was plenty of time for us to feed and comfort baby when needed with no pressure at all. The photos were also edited and sent to us extremely promptly after the season and are truly stunning. We will definitely be back for more photos when he gets a bit older.

Jo was absolutely fantastic with our newborn, Lily, during her photo shoot. Lily, being a typical newborn, didn’t want to sleep at the right times or be in any positions for photos. Jo worked with care and patience until she had the exact photos of Lily that she wanted. We couldn’t be happier with the end result! A perfect memory of our fast growing newborn that we can treasure! Thank you so much. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone.

We had such a lovely afternoon with Jo and her daughter(who was a superstar chaperone.)
We loved our outdoor photo shoot with our boys, and Jo and Ruby were so easy to get along with, and fitted in with snacks and milk feeds. The singing and clapping and acting like crazy ladies was most definitely worth it as Jo captured our twin boy’s unique and different personalities in her photos. We’ve had numerous compliments about the images and are delighted we marked their 1st birthday with a personalised, and tailored shoot! We will definitely be back to Jo, if she’ll have us. We highly recommend Jo.

We had both a maternity and newborn shoot with Joanna and the photos are wonderful. Joanna has an instantly likeable personality which makes it easier to relax and get some natural shots. Having a child of her own means she is very understanding of their needs (and yours as a new parent!) and we have some lovely memories from the days spent with her as well as the photos to cherish forever! We would highly recommend her.

We had a Maternity Photoshoot with Jo and it was great. I'm very camera shy and don't normally like having my photograph taken, but immediately Jo made me feel at ease. She has a fantastic eye when it comes to making decisions on where is best for background/lighting and makes sure the pictures look incredible. First pictures I've ever truly liked of myself and we can't thank Jo enough. Looking forward to having a newborn photoshoot when baby arrives  x

We had a fabulous day with Jo; the photos taken are fantastic, we're very pleased!

We wanted to capture our newborn but also to have some family photos with our first child. Jo suggested a combination of indoor photos where she had some fantastic newborn props and outdoor photos for the family shots in the beautiful setting of Westonbirt.

Jo's attention to detail and determination to get the perfect shot proved worth it; that and her timeless approach on the day provided a relaxed and enjoyable day for all the family.

We would and have already highly recommended Jo to all our friends and family xXx

My family and I had a brilliant family/newborn photoshoot with Jo. It was in a relaxing setting and Jo really took the time and effort to get the best pictures. We were absolutely thrilled with our pictures! We'd like to thank Jo for all of her time and patience, we couldn't have hoped for better results. We would most definitely recommend Jo.

We had a great day with Jo last week and we are really delighted with her pictures! Jo took the time to help me settle our baby when needed, and get the perfect shot, even in tricky lighting on a miserable January day. Plus we got to see the results that evening! With a newborn herself she has a great way with babies, and her home is inviting and relaxing - easy to feed between photos. Would highly recommend and have done so to many friends and family
