Rachel, your Whitby baby photographer
Find out a little bit about me and my family and how I started my career as a photographer in Whitby.
Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m the owner and photographer of Rachel Barron Photography, based in the beautiful seaside town of Whitby near Scarborough. Thanks for visiting my website! You might also know me as the ‘baby photographer’ or the ‘baby whisperer’. I’m looking forward to welcoming you to my website and hopefully my beautiful photography studio.
I specialise in newborn, baby and cake smash photography, creating images that are timeless and strive to capture the beauty and innocence of childhood. My sessions are relaxed and fun as this helps to deliver genuine emotions in your images.
My interest in photography started during my teens. I was fascinated using the dark room and developing images I’d taken. This has never left me. I love having the ability to freeze a moment in time that we will never get back.
Since leaving University, I’ve had a number of careers including a branch manager, family outreach worker and a creche manager to name just a few.
When my second son Max was just a few months old, I decided to pursue my dream and open my own my photography business. I’d spend hours photographing him and and trying to capture and preserve those tiny special details that only newborns have. Quickly I realised that this was where my passion in photography was. I adored newborn photography!
In a competivie market, i aim to stand out and keep ahead of new trends and saftey protacols. As such, I have been trained by some of the world’s best newborn and baby photographers and I am now the proud owner of many photography awards from competitions from around the world.
My husband, Nigel and I have been married for over ten years. We have two children, Finnley and Max and a fur baby cockapoo called Dolly. In 2018, we moved from Leeds to Whitby to escape city life and follow our dream of moving back to a town next to the sea. Moving to Whitby, we bought a beautiful Grade II listed house that has been a massive renovation project for us! (and still is). In our spare time we love nothing better than spending our days on the beach, enjoying walks with Dolly and catching up with friends and family that are now close by.
Whitby Landscape Photography
During lockdown 2020, I found a new passion. Everyday whilst out walking, I’d take my camera out with me and photograph the beautiful scenery. Whitby is so diverse and quirky and I love taking photos to represent that. Everyday the landscape seems to change and capturing the sea with its tides and drama is fills me with such excitement when i capure the ‘perfect shot’. I now have a selection of my prints available for sale, which can be viewed here Rachel Barron Whitby Photographer
