Newborn Baby Photographer Greater Manchester


I am a newborn baby photographer based in Greater Manchester and a mummy of 3 young children. We live in Littleborough on the border of Lancashire, Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire with my amazing husband and their daddy Tom. Tom and I met 15 years ago on a TV police drama called Merseybeat.

Our home is a crazy noisy house – with 3 children, Winnie the pug and Aspen the kitten it was never going to be quiet!

I studied photography and media at college and then Media and TV Production at Huddersfield University. My first job in TV was on two Danny Boyle films and after that spent over 10 years working in the industry. The programmes I worked on included Where The Heart Is, Shameless, Housewife 49. During my television career I was very lucky to work with so many wonderful people who have since inspired me in photography journey.

My love of photography has been there since I can remember and after having my children I decided to turn it into a career. Since then it has grown into a wonderful business that I love.

How my business began

I began my business from my home but the business grew very quickly and I soon needed a space. An old school friend had a salon in the centre of town with managing loft studio above it. We moved in there and Louise Lyons Photography grew even more. Then two years ago I found an even bigger space that I knew would be ideal and I have been there ever since. The studio is my pride and joy and I feel very grateful to be able to call it home. I have a designated newborn photography studio room which is lovely and homely. There is a bathroom and kitchen facilities right next door and all on the same level.

In the studio there is also a lovely viewing room, an office and then the other side of the studio is home to a lovely large that I use for cake smash photography, family photography and maternity photography.

Over the past 5 years I have photographed over 600 newborn babies making me one of the leading and most experienced newborn photographers in the area.

Photography is my passion

I love all kinds of photography but Portraiture is my passion and Newborn Photography is at the center of that passion. It’s because it’s such a precious, special time.  Capturing those moments for a family knowing they will treasure them forever is so rewarding. As a mummy of three you can rest assured that your baby is in safe hands. I’ve been that new mum and totally understand how you feel. My main aim is to provide a comfortable, cosy and warm studio. A space that you can bring your children and relax. It’s hard being a parent. It can be stressful taking your children into an environment they are not used to. Especially after giving birth!

My studio is totally child friendly and I encourage children to look around and explore. The more comfortable they feel the more they will relax and start to enjoy themselves. I also find that the more relaxed they are the more likely they will be to listen to me, therefore, it’s important to  get the children involved in the session and ask them to help me. As a result they will feel involved and part of the process.

It’s an honour and I love welcoming families into my studio and capturing those memories for you. Let me take that stress away from you.

I look forward to meeting you soon and getting to know you all better.

Newborn photography sessions are usually done within the first three weeks of baby being born. I can do these types of sessions with older babies. If you think you have missed the newborn stage then don’t panic and still contact me. Let me know how old your baby is and I can advise you in more depth about what session is best for your baby.

For sitter sessions baby ideal need to be just sitting up but not crawling although we all know that some babies just do everything at once!

Cake smash sessions can be done around any birthday celebrations or even just because, well who needs an excuse to eat cake! I can provide the cake or you can provide your own. It is entirely up to you.

Family sessions can take place at the studio or at an agreed outdoor location. My studio is big enough to fit a large family in. For any extra large family sessions then we can do that no problem with a bit of forward planning.

Apart from the newborn sessions my sessions usually take up to an hour. You can book out extra time at an agreed cost if arrangements are made in advance.
