Leading newborn photographer based in Sandbach, Cheshire.

I put my heart and soul into creating fine art portraits that are unique, natural and artistic with your family at the centre of everything.

With the use of strong colours, varied textures and a collection of bespoke, handcrafted props, my work is individual and dynamic with a vintage twist.

Choosing a newborn photographer is a very personal choice. Not only are you trusting someone to keep your new baby safe, you’re also choosing a style of photography that suits your home. Please feel welcome to browse my website and if you love what you see, get in touch so that we can discuss your needs and book in your due date. Most mums-to-be book their session after their 20 week scan to ensure that I definitely have availability. I limit how many newborn bookings I take each month to allow complete flexibility and my absolute dedication to each and every baby and their family.

Love for Little Primrose Photography:

“Lisa is not only a very talented photographer but she is also a talented baby whisperer! The whole experience was brilliant from start to finish. During the session Lisa takes charge allowing you to relax while she captures the beauty of your baby. Lisa wasn’t at all phased by Mabel who had her own ideas as to how the shoot should be- lisa was able to soothe and persuade Mabel back to the original plan! We are delighted with the photographs and I can’t recommend Little Primrose Photography highly enough” – Georgina Warren, September 2017

“If you are looking for someone to offer a different and beautiful approach to newborn photography, Lisa is the person you are after! She made us, as new parents, feel completely at ease and knew exactly what we were after. We gave her complete creative freedom with our photos, just a simple ask of colours and the rest was up to her and we could not be more pleased with the results! 100% recommend. I’m sure we’ll be back!” – Carolyn Penny, September 2017

“If you are debating whether to book a newborn shoot with Lisa I can absolutely recommend that you do, you certainly will not be disappointed! We recently visited her cosy home studio with our 6 day old, Connie and 22 month old, Dougie. We didn’t haven’t a newborn shoot with our eldest and Connie is the first girl to be born into my husbands family for 59 years so we were really desperate to have some photos that really celebrated that.

We wanted to embrace the feminine and although out of her norm Lisa bought a little pink outfit especially for Connie, how sweet is that! It’s amazing to watch Lisa at work and we could not be happier with the precious moments she has captured, photos that we will treasure forever. Lisa creates a lovely relaxing atmosphere and is so welcoming and friendly as well as professional. I was a little worried about how Dougie would react as he can be quite shy and unwilling to do things in new situations but not only is Lisa able to works her magic on newborns but also stubborn 22 month olds that don’t want to have their picture taken! Thank you so much Lisa, you are amazing at what you do! Love From,

Leanne, Tom, Dougie and Connie xxx”

“Fantastic. I contacted Lisa after a long debate on whether to have a photo shoot done for my twin daughters. Lisa put me at ease very quickly, and kept in touch whilst I was pregnant. When the twins were born, Lisa sorted everything, on the day her and her assistant arrived early set everything up and got on with it. Lisa was so very patient, and took very good care of them. The proof of her skills, hard work and patience is in the amazing photographs of our twins. Would definitely recommend and use in the future when all the girls are old enough. Thank you so much Lisa.” – Dawn Moody, January 2017 

“We were impressed by the photos Lisa had taken of our little boy at a Christmas event so we were keen to have more photos taken with her when she advertised her Mother’s Day Special shoot. She is very accommodating and patient.  It’s clear she is passionate about what she does and strives to capture the best possible images. I would go as far to say she is the baby whisperer as she can bring out the best smiles and giggles.” – Jess Milne, March 2017
