Joanna Osborne Photographer
I specialise in bespoke baby, child and family photography for parents that want a collection of images of their baby, child or children with some family photos both indoors and outdoors. Your shoot will combine both indoor studio photos and outdoor photos to give you a collection of at least 20 family photos that I hope you will treasure for a lifetime.
As a Cotswold baby photographer I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful locations. I quite often use Westonbirt Arboretum as it is not far away from my studio and quiet towards the end of the day. If you are not a member there then you will have to pay entry to get in. You can choose to have your Cotswolds Baby Photography session at a location of your choice should you know of a pretty place that we have permission to use.
I work with parents that are happy to give almost a whole day up to get these images. It does take time and the more energy you put into the day the better your photos will be. That includes both prior to the shoot organising outfits making sure the children are excited and during the shoot playing games with them and keeping them happy.
For the outdoor sessions I usually suggest the father or mother or both play games with the children whilst I take the Photos. It is very much a baby and child led photoshoot catering around their needs. I like to describe it as one very long picnic.
For newborn photos these are taken most of the year indoors. My studio is my home it is warm spacious and comfortable. I want you to feel relaxed here. There is a park round the corner where perhaps the father can take older siblings whilst we do the newborn photos.
I have an abundance of props I have collected and have had made for me including some beautiful wraps animal outfits blankets and head bands and plenty of baskets. When you are here you can go though them all seeing what colours, outfits and props you would like to use.
Because my photo sessions are very personal and bespoke I don't mind if it takes the day. I have quite often started a day at 11 and finished at 7 my mission is to work as long as possible with you to get the best images we can I will edit as many as there are good ones. I aim to get at least 20 excellent ones but more often then not we get many more. Although it is hard work it is worth it in the long run and we can work together to make it as fun as possible for everyone.
I love children and babies and the creativity challenge of photographing them. Its helps me if I can share the photos we take on my website and social media so please let me know if you are not happy with this during or prior to your session.
A days bespoke photo shoot costs £150. This includes my time both on the day and editing after, use of all the props and at least 20 edited imaged for you to choose from. This is redeemable at your viewing session against the products you choose.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
I work a lot outdoors so it helps if I know the location the areas that look good and where the light is at different times of the day. After that it is keeping the baby or child happy in the spot that I have figured out.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What they are looking to achieve. What they have seen on my website around that they like.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new local mums, making new friends, and seeing babies grow up from maternity photoshoots, to newborn, christening and first birthday cake smash fun. I also love meeting new people & being outdoors, and enjoy the creative and fun challenge of working with unpredictable children!
What inspired you to start your own business?
Since having my daughter I wanted to do something that I enjoy that I could fit around looking after her.
Why should our clients choose you?
I do not have a time limit on your photoshoot I spend as much time as the client can bare to get the images. I work hard with the parents until we have some great photos. A lot of time after is spent editing them until I am completly satisfied that they are perfect and will be treasured in years to come.
