Rachel Barron Photography
I first fell in love with the world of photography during my A Levels back in 1999 where i spent hours in the dark room revealing my creations. I then briefly entered into the world of modelling but I soon realised i felt a lot more comfortable behind the lens. I've always been surrounded by children with my parents owning a nursery and I feel I have a natural ability to connect with and put children at ease. For me, combining photography and working with children has to be the best job in the world!I specialise in newborn photography and capturing those first special days so you can treasure them forever. Everyone will tell you how quickly your children will grow up and as a mother of two, I can definatley vouch for that. Investing in art that you can keep forever of a snapshot in time when your children are so small is priceless. During a photoshoot I work around your baby and their needs, allowing plenty of time for feeds and of course cuddles! I live in North Leeds just off the A61 and this is also where my cosy little studio is based. I find my clients seem to enjoy this and relax very quickly as they can watch a bit of TV and help themselves to tea and coffee (and cake!) rather than a more formal studio setting. I'm a mum of two fantastic boys, Finnley who has just had his fifth birthday and Max who is nine months and I have been married for six years to my husband Nigel. I'm a fun, easygoing people person and I love to be surrounded by my family and friends. I find the simple things in life bring me the most pleasure and I love capturing memories of my own family from behind my lens. I hope that one day my boys will treasure the hundreds of photos i have taken of them during their childhood and feel proud to share them with their future families.I currently hold a degree and a level 3 in childcare, a paediatric first aid certificate, and an enhanced DBS.
