Hi I’m Trina, an ex Midwife who previously worked in the NHS for over 10 years working closely with postnatal mums & newborn babies, I have been specialising in Newborn & Baby photography for the last 12 years. Having photographed weddings prior to this, it seemed only fitting that I should follow my heart & combine my love for photography with the precious newborns I was experienced in working with on a daily basis. I have families travelling from Surrey, London & Sussex for Newborn & Baby Photography & in turn I’ve received many excellent reviews over the years, & I truly feel confident in assuring you that your little one will be in safe hands.
Some of my favourite things are caramel lattes, snuggles with any cat or dog who will let me snuggle them & providing clients with beautiful relaxed & timeless colourful images of their little one, however I do also love black & white images & I’m conflicted on an almost daily basis on which I prefer the most. Originally from Scotland, you will notice a ‘bit of an accent’ when you meet me – but if I’m honest over the years my accent has gotten very muddled. On my days off you will most likely find me working out in my home gym, walking the dogs or cooking.
As one of the first newborn specialists in the UK years ago way back when the trend originally started, I was trained by some of the worlds best newborn photographers in my early years which has since led to my distinctive style in my work. My passion & love for photography radiates through & I’m well known for my use of soft colours in my Newborn work & fabulous extravagant Cake Smash sets, of which the backdrops now sell all around the globe in the UK, Australia & America. As a result, I often get asked if I will train other aspiring photographers from around the world. However when you meet me you will see, I’m the most content when im in my own little happy place (my beautiful studio) surrounded by gorgeous props & a warm squishy baby, rather than on stage in a teaching environment. Never say never they say, maybe one day, but for now, im doing what I love the most & thats focusing all my attention on my tiny clients.
