About Rachel Lou...
I'm Rachel and I specialise in natural, authentic pregnancy, baby and family photography. I offer relaxed photography sessions in your own home. After having a baby it is sometimes just a bit too much to get yourself out of the front door, so let me take away the struggle and come to you. I’ll photograph you and your beautiful new family in the comfort of your own home, capturing real, authentic memories forever.
I am Mum to three spirited little people, wife to a country sports-mad husband and owner of Authentic Baby Photography.
My favourite things to do are chat over a cuppa with friends, explore the great outdoors with family and consume my body weight in chocolate on a regular basis!
(I may also be persuaded to enjoy a cheeky gin every now and then)
