LONDON'S BEST-LOVED BABY PHOTOGRAPHER - now available in the midlands and beyond!


 I started Maraschino Photography in earnest in 2009. I’ve been a passionate professional photographer for over 13 years now, and I LOVE what I do!


I’m a fully-qualified Master Photographer, and the only Master in the region specialising in newborn photography.  You can rest assured that you and your baby will be in safe hands.


Like most photographers, I learned my craft through lots of different commissions: weddings, portraits, events, products – everything really!  But teeny tiny babies were my absolute favourite. They bring an added dimension to my life and they bring out the absolute best in me. The first few days of a new life are precious.  I am very grateful to get asked to share this precious time with my clients and the new addition to their family.  It never stops feeling like a privilege.


Maraschino Photography has been gathering reviews for 13 years now, so it’s not surprising we’ve got a few. But never in a million years did I think we’d have so many!


The feedback we’ve gotten over the years has been amazing.  I’m completely blown away by it.  It’s so rewarding to know that people appreciate the extra effort we make to ensure they have an amazing experience. Thank you for the kind words we’ve received from the hundreds of clients who have taken the time out to write a review for us.  Even more remarkable is that most of them will have had their arms full of Baby while they wrote it!


With 90 reviews on Google and almost 150 reviews on Facebook, I think Maraschino may have more reviews than any other maternity, newborn and baby photographer in London.  To all of you that have left a review – from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU


I know some of you like to know random facts, and a bit more about me when I'm not at work, so if it floats your boat ....



Walk in the countryside with my dog, Maisy.  She may be getting on a bit (she's 11) but she still chases a tennis ball like a demon, when the mood takes her.

I have a share in a boat.  She's really not posh, though.  We're not talking gin palace, moored in Cannes!  We're talking Thames Waterman Cutter.  She has space for six rowers and a cox.  We launch from The Ahoy Centre in Deptford, London.  I think she's a beautiful boat.

I enjoy endurance exercise! Really, who knew?! A few years ago I rowed in a 60km race in Finland.  My team rowed non-stop for more than 6 hours.  One of the best experiences I've had, ever! (Check out the video - that's us in the purple tops!)

I'm a Geordie.  (For those of you that don't know, that means I'm from Newcastle Upon Tyne.) As a Geordie I'm supposed to LOVE football.  I don't, though.  I LOVE rugby.  That might have something to do with the fact that I lived in London for over 20 years.  Recently moved to Northamptonshire, I can't wait to get to know the people, and the places, and the best walks to take Maisy on!

morning people.  I often wake up before the alarm.  Conversely that means I'm rubbish in the evenings, and can't stay awake past 10pm!

rock n' roll! A self-confessed rock chick and 80's throwback, please don't use the expression 'Dad Rock' near me - you might make me cry!

I have 3 degrees. My first degree is in fashion design.  This comes in really useful when advising clients on styling and clothing choices for their shoots.

I can touch type and write in shorthand.  If I'm in a meeting, people get paranoid when they see me writing in shorthand.  They always assume I'm writing something nasty about them!

karaoke. Usually more than the audience who have the misfortune of listening to me!  What I lack in talent I make up for in enthusiasm!

cooking.  Don't ask me to improvise in the kitchen!  If I've not got exactly the right ingredients for the recipe, I'm not going to cook it!
