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 photo.

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.

When Three Becomes Four

When Three Becomes Four​

This beautiful session was my first of 2024, so I thought that was a good place to start after not blogging for so long! Like every session, this one was very relaxed, so even with a newborn and a toddler, it was a lot of fun! During a session like this, I will very much take your lead, and let the session flow along with you and your little people. No pressure at all to get a perfect image. Newborn babies and toddlers will very much do what they want! But keeping things very relaxed means that natural moments will happen, and together we can capture some beautiful memories for you to treasure.  What are you waiting for? I'd love to chat!                      

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Waiting for You

It feels like a million years ago now, but I wanted to share with you some of my favourite self portraits from when I was pregnant with our son. I didn't have the easiest pregnancy, after being diagnosed with Placenta Previa, but I wanted to capture as much I could, even the tough times when I was in hospital. Creating these images helped me to keep going, and I knew that one day I'd want to tell my story. Not every pregnancy, or birth story is easy. But, every one is beautiful in its own way.                      

What is brand photography?

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

So that's half of 2022 already done! (I know how crazy!) The last 6 months have been a total whirlwind if I'm honest. Chasing after a bonkers wannabe toddler, and running two businesses is a little crazy! But I wouldn't change it for the world. Sharing a few favourites from the last 6 months. Here’s to the next half of the year!
