About Lucy Rae

'Shoot for the moon.

Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars - Anon.'




My name is Lucy, I am based in Rainham, Essex (UK) and here's a little bit about me and my business. With over 7 years of experience, photographing well over 600 families, from TV personalities to footballers, I have built up my reputation in the industry as a sought after photographer. I have been trained by some of the best international photographers, so you are in safe hands. I am extremely lucky that I have clients return to me time and time again, and that I come recommended by so many.  I love to create a real calming and relaxed environment that even many parents find it hard to stay awake! All of my sessions take place from my home studio and your newborn session is about You, as a parent getting some time back to relax. You should feel comfortable enough to put your feet up on the sofa, sit back and watch the magic happen. Every client is important so I aim to deliver an enjoyable experience, with memories you can cherish for a lifetime.  Getting to meet different people every day and to capture their little ones lives through the lens is such a rewarding job to have, which makes me feel blessed every day. It has been amazing to meet some incredible people with their own unique stories along the way and I hope to continue my work for many more years to come.  A tribute for a special young lady

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily a few years ago. After capturing the first several images, I pulled back my camera to view them and said 'I'm so glad I met you and got to photograph you before anyone else!". Emily was a natural in front of the camera, tall, slim, beautiful skin and such a down to earth and witty girl. We had a laugh during our session and had the typical girl talk about boyfriends, clothes and make up. 

Emily sadly passed away two weeks after her photoshoot, she touched my heart in such a special way its hard to believe I only met her the once. After speaking with Emily's mother, she told me how Emily's photoshoot gave her confidence at a time she needed it the most, it gave me more hope in myself than I could ever imagine. 

There is nothing more fulfilling than capturing images for families to last a lifetime.
