What is a Portrait Experience?

Pre Session Consultation​

Let’s have a chat about your hopes and dreams for your newborn session. We will go over all the details and answer any questions you may have.​

The Session

This is where the magic happens! We will capture lots of family photo combinations, including kids by themselves, with each parent, with the pets etc. Sessions normally take 1 hour. Parents, siblings, pets and grandparents most welcome.

The Design Session

This is where you will see your photos for the first time in a cinematic slideshow presentation at our studio. This is where you will choose your images and gorgeous products that will best suit your home.

Meet your photographer

Hi, I’m Laura! I am a mum of two – Zoe and Mason who regularly help me in the studio. I was born in Bristol in the UK and we try to visit family there every few years. I am an introvert and really enjoy working with children. I have been told many times that people love my patience with children – especially the shy ones!

There’s nothing I love more than capturing those first precious weeks of a baby’s life. These weeks pass by so quickly, i want every parent to be able to look back on these moments and re-live these first few weeks through the photos that we capture together.

Lovely Words From Clients

We all had such a great time with Laura, we were nervous about how it was going to go with a 2 week old and she made it such a breeze and got lots of smiles out of our little boy! We’ve just picked up all our prints and we absolutely adore them! 100% would do all over again and recommend to anyone!
Laura took amazing photos of my children. She put them at ease and brought out their personalities. The project she’s doing with heart Kids is awesome. I would definitely recommend Laura Ridley to everyone.
Laura has done our wedding, maternity and newborn photos! They are all INCREDIBLE and we could not be happier with the end product! Highly recommend!


No worries! We totally get that some kids need more time than others to come out of their shell. We work with each individual personality to make them feel comfortable and to have a good time!

I hear you! With a lot of patience, a little bribery and a whole lot of love, i am 100% sure that we will get some fantastic shots!
