Kind Words From Families

small business...BIG heart

Louise Wood behind the scenes

"A photography session with Louise is like visiting an old friend, she makes everyone feel so comfortable and captures real moments in the most beautiful way."

—Amaya Family

"Lou is an outstanding photographer and her use of natural lighting is extraordinary. We have known her for over 5 years now and she has beautifully documented our family’s journey from 3 bumps to newborns, 1st birthdays and outdoor family sessions too.
During our most recent session she was able to juggle an unpredictable newborn, a moody 2yr old and a very active 4yr old and still managed to capture the most beautiful photos, plus everyone had lots of fun (skills).
We will treasure the photos forever."

—Dillon Family

""We have had Christmas photos with Louise for 7 years now and the kids absolutely LOVE IT. It's such a fun experience with so much effort put in from Louise to get everyone in the festive mood.  Plus she always manages to get the best natural smiles from my kids year after year (even from my grumpy boy which is frankly a miracle!!) Highly recommended, it's the perfect gift for family & friends.""

—Marsh Family

""I’ve had a few photo sessions with Louise over the years, including some previous maternity sessions with her traditional tutu. This time around however I decided to go all out, I chose to pose nude to really celebrate how powerful and feminine it can feel to be pregnant. I had such a good time, we had a lovely chat, I felt so comfortable and able to just let loose and be ‘free’! The photos are incredible and I’m so pleased to have them as a keepsake. I’d fully recommend it to anyone.""

—Anonymous mum to be

"I'd never choose anyone else.
The most perfect photos, taken in the calmest and loveliest of environments that any new mum or dad could ask for.
As a young & nervous first time mum, it was hard finding my feet. Louise made me feel so calm and welcome and gave me loads of tips & tricks on how to care for my tiny new baby girl….fast forward 9 years, after finding out I was pregnant again in November last year I knew we’d be going back to see her again ☺️ I can’t recommend Louise enough."

—Appleby Family

"With 4 boys it wasn’t an easy task to take on, especially on a super hot day after school... tummies were rumbling and baby Albie was very unsettled, but your calm nature made us all feel at ease. Thank you for being flexible with us changing the date last minute, also splitting the session in half made it a lot easier for me to juggle as a mum, it allowed us calm time to capture Albie on his own for his cute 'new baby' pictures ahead of the craziness of our family shoot a few days later. We are so happy."

—Burr-Stuckey Family

"We love Louise. We've had a newborn, milestone, cake smash, Christmas mini, and recently a family outdoor/lifestyle shoot too. Can you tell how much we love her?! She is so easy to work with, creates amazing shots, and our daughter really enjoys herself. Thank you Lou xx"

—O'Donnell Family

"Louise's environment for a start is just so beautiful, it's very relaxing but also fun for the children. Louise has a lovely way of making you feel instantly comfortable especially with children. My daughter is disabled but she captured her in a way that was just amazing, we are so proud of her and her achievements at just 5yrs old, and you could see that in our photos. Honestly you won't regret this experience xx"

—Dean Family

"We have just had our 3rd child and wanted to get some family shots. My eldest has autism and finds having his photo taken stressful. I emailed Lou to explain and she got back to me asking how best she could accommodate his needs, providing much needed reassurance. On the day she was flexible, calm and pragmatic and all of this put us at ease.A brilliant experience and I would thoroughly recommend Lou. She’s captures the children’s personalities and created something special for us to treasure."

—Miles Family

"We booked in for the ‘mini sitter’ and it was fabulous. My little girl is 8 months old and never ever sits still. Louise definitely adapted her style and followed her round everywhere and still managed to capture the most beautiful pictures which definitely showed off her cheeky side (which we love!). Louise’s studio in her house was perfect and was exactly what we wanted and gave Indie the space to be herself and move around. We will definitely be back for more pictures!!"

—Coram Family

"Highly recommend. We booked a family mini photo shoot. Louise accommodated us at the last minute, at a busy time of year and was absolutely amazing with my photo hating 4 year old. The pictures are gorgeous, exactly what we wanted and her prices are reasonable as she offers clear packages to buy more (or all) images so there are no huge hidden costs as there are with so many other photographers. Book Louise now !!"

—Stevens Family

"Cannot recommend Lou enough! I had my maternity photoshoot and felt so comfortable and I loved how she made me feel and how the photos turned out so there was no hesitation when looking for something for my daughters 1st birthday. We decided to do a cake smash photoshoot and the photos turned out amazing, I cannot wait to receive my prints! Thanks so much"

—Maxwell Family

"Thank you Louise for our beautiful photos. I love them all. You made our photo shoot very special and you were so great with the kids. I can’t wait to share my photos with my family. I would hugely recommend anyone to have a photoshoot with Louise."

—Bromley Family

"Easy to plan and organise potential dates in advance of baby’s birth as well as a variety of shoot types to choose from. The session itself took place in Louise’s brilliantly organised home setting. Great mix of shots were taken of baby with all of us, individually with baby etc... Choice of photographs were fantastic and the printing bundles were great value for money too. Can't recommend enough."

—Barber Family

"A fabulous day out with 3 generations of our family at the beach has produced some excellent photos and memories! Even though some of the younger members of our crew were not always keen on being photographed, Louise knew just how to get them on side and get some great smiles and candid photos from all of us. Thanks so much - too little wall space is the problem now!"

—Kessamont / White Family

"One of the best experiences of my life !! To watch Lou work with my week old son in such a loving and caring way, and in such a unique and relaxed environment was truly amazing!"

—KP Family

"We initially chose Louise nearly 3 years ago for my first pregnancy, newborn and 1st birthday photos which we loved. Covid hit during my 2nd pregnancy and I was gutted. Lou came through for us and we managed to get some amazing outdoor socially distanced shots while I was pregnant. We were even luckier to be her 1st “newborn” session when restrictions were lifted. She followed every single guideline and precaution. Louise has a great energy and expertise especially around children, her photos are beautiful."

—Yeramain Family

"Had a maternity photo session with Lou this week and despite my initial nerves, myself and my 3.5 year old daughter had so much fun. Lou made me feel at ease within minutes and I can't believe how amazing the photos are. I shared the preview with friends on social media and have been bowled over by the comments. For anyone debating either a maternity or newborn shoot I simply can't recommend Nurtured With Love enough."

—Norburn Family

"Fab fab experience - highly recommend it. We have had a couple of shoots with Louise, a newborn and a family mini. She made us feel so relaxed and managed to capture some really great photos. I love her style and Louise definitely has an eye for what works and knows how to get the best from my kids. We had a mix of pictures put into a huge frame - mainly because I loved so many, they get lots of comments from our friends and family saying how well she captured our personalities."

—GFB Family

"Excellent! I've had a few sessions with Louise and never been disappointed with the photography she produces. She is very good at making you feel relaxed. Louise has made every change needed to reopen in a way that keeps everyone safe and protected in these COVID times. Highly recommend Louise for all types of family photography."

—Bartley Family

"Louise has photographed my family for years. She is super professional and puts you all at ease, plus the photos she takes are of the highest quality. I love that they look so natural. Highly recommended."

—Hill Family

"We have just received our Christmas images and they are fabulous as always. We have had several sessions with Lou now and on every occasion she has got the best out of everyone to get a great shot. Despite the boys being so young she captures their focus and the fantastic pictures are testament to her personality and skill. The final products are always of great quality also."

—Yates Family

"Louise's family photos are beautiful. She was really encouraging with my (shy) daughter and got some lovely photos of her as a result. The photos were taken in our home and were so natural, they really captured us as a family. Some of the pictures of my two girls were really funny and still bring a smile to our faces now. Lou's prices are very reasonable and nothing is too much trouble for her. We will absolutely be back again."

—McGuire Family

"Absolutely beautiful pictures that we will treasure forever. Really couldn’t have hoped for more – thank you so much to Louise and for making me actually enjoy a photography session! Fantastic company – can’t recommend her highly enough"

—Lyner Family

"Louise at Nurtured With Love was so lovely and very much aware how to make us mummy’s and mummy’s to be feel comfortable and relaxed. The finished products are very professional and beautifully done. Thank you for a lovely time."

—Cullen Family

"The most relaxing atmosphere and very cosy studio. Photos were very natural and just beautiful. Exactly how I wanted!"

—Mika Family

"Thank you so much for my maternity photoshoot yesterday morning, I had a wonderful time. Louise at Nurtured With Love made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and helped to capture a very special moment in my life. Her home studio is fabulous and the pictures of newborns & families are gorgeous. Would love to come back in the future"

—Hillyer Family

"I highly recommend Nurtured With Love, I had maternity photos taken with Louise which was so lovely. She managed to make me look & feel lovely"

—Coaker Family

"WOW! I actually think my breath caught in my throat at these beautiful photos. Thank you"

—Wild Family

"I would recommend to anyone looking for newborn photography! Louise was amazing! So calm and reassuring to both us and our daughter! Massive choice of props and the results are fabulous! We have had so many compliments on the photographs as they are so naturally lit and soft and obviously very cute! We were unsure whether to have pictures done because of the investment, however it really is an essential part of your ‘new baby’ list as they change so quickly! The pictures are once in a lifetime and we picked"

—Weekes Family

"We had a great experience with Louise, she did both our newborn photo sessions. The experience and photos were fantastic! Louise is brilliant with babies and new parents…if only we could bring her home with us!! 😂 I would definitely recommend her for all newborn / family shoots!
We also used Louise during the pandemic for a distanced ‘doorstep’ session, I couldn’t fault her professionalism and commitment to getting our newborn photos. ❤️"

—Richards Family

"From the first time I met Louise I was impressed by her professionalism and skill in taking pictures of newborns.
So when my daughter was pregnant with her first baby I couldn’t wait to gift her a “Watch Me Grow” package: I chose Maternity, Newborn & 1st Birthday. The pregnancy and newborn sessions are in the bag (the photos are gorgeous) and I can’t wait for next year to be here when Albert has his 1st birthday session."

—Evelyn Burdon (The Cheshire Baby Whisperer)

"From the moment I first enquired about a shoot I was drawn in by her attitude and passion. Starting with a maternity session and then just recently progressing onto a shoot with our newborn I can honestly say I didn’t want them to end and am already looking forward to our next occasion to capture more beautiful images. Having lost our first daughter Avery, I wanted both shoots to be special and capture our unique rainbow pregnancy and our new baby boy – to which she embraced completely."

—Addy Family

"I love the pictures from Louise, we have used her during both pregnancies for maternity & newborn images. The pictures are truly amazing and we’ve created fabulous memories. We have them up around our house and I love looking at them! Even with a crazy toddler the maternity shoot and newborn shoot were both calm, Louise knew how to distract him with all the toys she had and lots of stickers. So many options of blankets and props it was hard to make a decision as they were all fabulous… a great setting."

—Hone Family

"We love Louise at Nurtured With Love. We’ve had a newborn shoot, milestone, cake smash, Christmas mini, and just recently a family outdoor/lifestyle shoot. Can you tell how much we love her? She is so easy to work with, creates amazing shots and our daughter really enjoys herself. Thank you!!!!"

—O’Donnell Family

"LOVE LOVE my fabulous bump pictures created at Louise’s amazing home studio. The whole experience from start to finish was well organised, enjoyable and relaxed… I couldn’t recommend it enough! I found that Louise made the experience personal to me, listened to what I wanted and made me feel really comfortable (especially for the nude shots!). The pictures produced are even more precious now that my bump is no more and instead a gorgeous little lady."

—Abraham Family

"Louise is phenomenal, capturing fleeting moments to treasure forever. Parents know how fast their little ones grow – we want it to slow down but before you know it milestones in their lives are passing by. Nurtured with love capture these moments – preserved forever on camera. From those precious newborn shots right through the milestones to their first birthday and beyond. This is not buying a few pictures from a photographer this is an investment into your family’s memories that will last a lifetime."

—Roberts Family
