I’ve been a huge admirer of Lucy’s work for a long time so I knew that I wanted to use her when our precious baby girl was born.

My husband and I had the most amazing experience when we arrived at Lucy’s studio. We were made to feel so welcome and completely relaxed, to the point where we could have both fallen asleep as the studio was so warm and cosy!

All the criteria we gave Lucy for the photos we wanted were not just met with professionalism but also with so much love!

Our baby girl was a little bit unsettled in the middle of our shoot and if I could re-name Lucy as the Baby Whisperer then I would, she was absolutely incredible with getting our lovely bundle calm and back to sleep so the shoot could carry on.

The end result were the most beautiful photographs! From viewing them back at the studio to receiving the final products, every little aspect is thought about with so much love, care and attention!

We’ll definitely be using Lucy again to capture more precious memories for us and our families to cherish for the future

We had a fantastic day with Lucy. It couldn’t have gone any better. She was brilliant handling our 10 day old baby and the photos produced are out of this world including her current profile picture. It was difficult only picking 20 pictures as so many were fantastic. Would and will recommend her to all our friends
— Amanda Maloney
We have recently had a newborn shoot for our little girl Sienna at 5 days old. I was a little nervous about it as she has been abit unsettled since birth suffering with reflux and hates been changed / naked.
Lucy was amazing with her and very very patient, even when Sienna decided she wanted to be awake for 3 hours during the shoot! I have just received my pictures today and I am over the moon - they are gorgeous and definately something to be treasured!
Can’t wait to come back next year for Siennas next shoot (first birthday cakesmash)
Thanks again Lucy!!!!

After seeing Lucy’s work I knew right then I wanted her to take the first photo’s of my unborn baby girl. And I couldn’t of been happier with the results, a beautiful baby made even more beautiful with Lucy’s great talent. A real natural behind the lens and with the babies.

I had my daughter Teddy’s first birthday commemorated with a photoshoot with Lucy. From start to finish it was perfect. We were made to feel welcome, the photos were taken in such a way that the outcome was gorgeous, natural pictures of Teddy enjoying her cake smash session that I will treasure forever. My older daughter Poppy even got in on the act and it was all so “go with the flow” absolutely perfect, totally what I was looking for and I would TOTALLY recommend her to everyone.

My sister bought us a bump to baby package for christmas which was great as we could have before and after photos.
We would (and have) highly recommend Lucy - she’s amazing, so normal and down to earth. I was a bit nervous about having my photo taken and she made us feel so at ease and she was amazing with Nate as well when doing his newborn shoot.
Lucy really listened to what we wanted and our pictures have come out beautifully!
Thank you so so much! Xx
— Hayley Beard
