“Perfect experience to capture our newborn ‘Sofia’s’ first moments.
Both Nicky and her husband were amazing from the moment we stepped through their front door. They were very welcoming and quickly lulled our newborn into a calm and sleepy demeanor. The whole experience was fun from start to finish and both were very professional. The turn-around of images was very quick and the whole process very easy. I am extremely pleased with the images and have had many compliments from friends and family and everyone that has seen them. I will most definitely use Nicky again for other shoots as my daughter grows up and thoroughly recommend Nicky to anyone.”

“We had such a wonderful time with Nicky and her partner – the studio is lovely and they really put us and our little one (who was pretty grouchy some of the time) at ease.

The photos are completely adorable! We had plenty of opportunity to give our preferences for the style of the shoot and colour themes etc. We ended up with a variety of different poses and themes which we loved so much that it was really difficult to choose the final set from the selection.

We would highly recommend Nicky to anybody considering a baby or family photo shoot.”

“Nicky’s studio is perfect for newborn baby shoots and has lots of props to choose from. My 3 year old son attended the session and Nicky and her partner were very good with him and were happy to do his shots first as requested. They were especially good with my 2 week old baby, and ensured she was happy at all times. She wasn’t the easiest of babies to work with, but I was able to feed and change her whenever needed and the shoot didn’t feel rushed at all.

Nicky was quick to get back to me with the photos from the shoot and I was then able to choose my favourites. I was so happy with the final pictures, they were even better than expected and I’ve had so many lovely comments about them. I am so happy I chose Nicky and would not hesitate to recommend her to people or use her again in the future.”

“Really lovely experience at the shoot. Absolutely loved all the photographs Nicky took. Made copies for our whole family and excited to have them on our walls. Can’t wait to have more photos done again.”

“Nicky took some amazing pictures for my son who just turned 1 year old. My son was not on best form on the day, but she did everything she could to get the little man smiling. Nicky had lots of props to use to distract him and of course to play with. The studio was really nice and purpose built for lovely intimate photos. My husband and I are so happy with the service provided and the beautiful pictures Nicky captured for us, we adore them! We will definitely be booking Nicky again for when the little one is standing.”

“If I could give more stars I would! Nicky was incredible with our 8 day new son. We were a little anxious (a lot anxious) about the shoot, having not really ventured out much with our first baby but were made to feel right at home in Nicky’s amazing studio. She really is such a professional and the pictures are just perfect. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience or more incredible pictures and memories!”

– Deborah

“An experience to create one of many happy memories…….

Nicky is a wonderful photographer alongside the support of her husband Mike, who we now refer to as the baby whisperers! They were so friendly, warm, welcoming and made us all feel completely at ease. They have a beautiful and intimate purpose built studio, which provides families with that ‘home from home’ feeling.

Before the initial shoot, Nicky was in communication via email, but also gave me a call (mum of a 3 year old and 5 week old at the time), which I found so personable and highlighted to me her passion and commitment to her job. Her and her husband were calm and patient & very professional. As a breastfeeding mum, I was offered the time needed to feed and resettle my baby.

We were so delighted with the final images and are very much looking forward to putting the prints up around our home. All in all, a wonderful experience was had by all. I would very highly recommend Nicky Ward photography to families and pregnant ladies. If I could give her more stars, I would.”

“I cannot recommend Nicky highly enough! We came across Nicky after spending lots of time searching online and found Nicky to be very responsive and helpful from the outset.

The maternity shoot itself was brilliant – I remember feeling really tired on the day, but Nicky and her husband (who was assisting her) managed to make us feel relaxed right from the outset. The studio was full of useful props and lovely outfits and Nicky captured so many beautiful memories for us! We were so happy with the photos, we booked in for a newborn shoot once our little daughter arrived!

They were brilliant with the little one, so patient and the pictures are on our wall at home and we will cherish them for many years to come.”

– Rachel

“Nicky has a beautiful photography studio at her home in Hampton. She is a natural with babies and clearly loves what she does. As a result we had an amazing newborn shoot with her. We quickly felt we could be ourselves in her company and the photos she took show it. Highly recommend.”
