Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m the owner of Rachel Barron Photography. Thanks for visiting my website! I’m looking forward to welcoming you to my beautiful studio based in the seaside town of Whitby, North Yorkshire. 

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.

Ive had a number of carrers since leaving University including a branch manager, family outreach worker and a creche manager to name just a few.

I decided to pursue my dream and open my own my photography business when my second son Max was just a few months old. I’d spend hours photographing him and and trying to capture and preserve those tiny special details that only newborns have. I soon realised that this was where my passion in photography was. 

I have been trained by some of the world’s best 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 ten years. We have two children, Finnley and Max and a fur baby cockapoo called Dolly. We moved to Whitby in 2018 from Leeds 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.
