Memories to treasure with beautiful, natural family and newborn photography.


A River & Pear lifestyle session is as individual as your family are; capturing precious, natural and relaxed moments in time.  Lifestyle sessions can take place either indoor or outdoor, at a location of your choice.  All photography packages include your high-resolution digital images on a USB stick, photo gallery app and a beautifully mounted or framed photo. Take a look around my website and please contact me with any queries.

I’m a natural Family and Newborn Photographer based in Cockermouth in Cumbria.


Time is precious, and photographs are an amazing and beautiful way to look back on a certain point, or time in our lives. They take us back, make us feel, and are a little window to a memory now past.


Creating images that make me feel something is so important to me, and capturing real connections and emotions is a key element in this process. I love to capture families just as they are; real, true and unposed.

Hi I’m Beth!​

"real, true and unposed."


The world is yours to explore. Let’s go outside.

The world is yours to explore. Let’s go outside

For the little explorers who like to be busy. The adventurers, the wild ones, and the ones who don’t want to sit still. Outdoor sessions are a mini adventure, a chance to be one with nature, and to explore our beautiful surroundings. Let’s go on an adventure together.       ​

There's no place like home

A place where love is found, and memories are made. Where we are most relaxed, and where we can be ourselves. Every family has a special space or room in their home, that means something to them. It might be the kitchen where you make pancakes every weekend, or the nursery where you feed your newborn. In Home Sessions let you be you. Your family just as they are.  ​

This Detailed Life magazine

This Detailed Life magazine is a professional photography magazine showcasing artwork by photographers around the world. Run by a team of photographers, we wish to elevate our fellow photographers, educate and inform, and above all to inspire.  The first issue was launched in June 2020 and it was amazing to be part of the team, and to have one of my self portraits featured. The theme of the first issue was Quarantine, and it showcased art that photographers created during lockdown. The second issue celebrates the little things, the big things and the things that really matter when life doesn’t go as planned.  After an unprecedented and challenging year for the majority of people around the world, we wanted an opportunity to celebrate what we can. Despite difficult times, there is always plenty that can be celebrated and we'd like to bring a positive spin to the end of 2020 and focus on this where possible. The second issue CELEBRATE! is now available to order here –      ​
