Superhero Photography

Do your kids LOVE everything Superheroes?

Let's capture the inner Superhero every child has!

Who DOESN’T love a superhero! Superheroes power children’s imaginations through play and provide role models for them to look up to. They teach children courage, to trust their own abilities and believe in themselves.

And we believe Mum’s have superpowers too … because parenting a little Superhero is no easy feat! 

They kinda need superhuman strength … and patience … to embrace the chaos of living with energetic, full-on, fidgety, can’t sit still, watch TV upside down … SUPERHERO.

We’re SO FREAKING EXCITED to be introducing “Superhero” Sessions at Laura Ridley. 

Whether they’re a DC or Marvel fan, we will bring your child’s Superhero dreams to life with an action packed session full of serious superhero moves and contagious energy.

Superhero Costumes

We’ll provide the costumes, you supply the Superhero! We have wide selection of Superhero costumes for both boys and girls including Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Ironman, Wonder Woman, Super Girl, Bat Girl and the Hulk. But you are most welcome to bring your own costume if it’s not listed here.

Don't forget the BIG Superheroes too ...

Does Dad love dressing up as a Superhero too? Maybe you’re a FAMILY of superheroes who can’t wait for Halloween and relish any excuse to dress up. These sessions aren’t just for the littlelies! So if you’re obsessed with cosplay or simply want to share the fun with the kids, THIS IS FOR YOU!

"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 head been photographing our family for almost five years now. During this time we have her a newborn shoot, couples shoot, family session and also a few one-offs. Laura is great at putting out kids at ease and getting the best out of them on the day. The images she takes have always really captured our children's personalities and our photos always have a lovely sense of story and emotion to them that make you appreciate photography as an art form. The products are of an exceptionally high quality and we have really seen them as an investment worth saving for that will last a lifetime!"
