Francesca is a very warm person who instantly makes you feel welcome the second you meet her. Not only is she super nice, but she was fantastic with our newborn son, Cannon. She has a calming touch and it's almost like magic how she can get such wonderful pictures from a tiny baby! I want to call her the baby whisperer because I have never seen any one else handle a baby so well. I really appreciate her hospitality and will be contacting her again soon for more pictures- it's totally worth it!
(Kellie Cambpell, mum of Cannon)
I was given my newborn photoshoot with Francesca as a gift and was slightly hesitant over how it would go for me so soon after the birth and for my 12 day baby. Francesca put me at ease from the moment I arrived. She was wonderful with my baby and instantly eased my husbands and my nerves. The shoot was relaxed and the environment welcoming and we really enjoyed ourselves. We are so pleased with our beautiful pictures and so grateful for Francesca's hard work which means we have these photographs of such a precious time.
(Polly Laycock, mum of Neve)
Friendly And Passionate About Babies
From the moment I first contacted her, Francesca conducted herself with the utmost professionalism. More importantly she was friendly and passionate about babies which is what you want in those 'foggy' first few weeks as a new mum. The photoshoot being in Francesca's home made for a cosy environment and there was never any sense of hurry, which made the whole experience enjoyable and relaxed. It was lovely to be able to stop for a break and feed the boys without feeling like it was an imposition. Indeed there was never any sense of 'having to get the job done' as Francesca clearly loves what she does and truly enjoys spending time photographing others. Most importantly the photos were all truly stunning, helping us to capture one of the most wonderful and special moments in our lives so far. I will certainly be contacting Francesca again for future photo shoots and would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a family photographer

Loved The Experience
I found Francesca just by searching the internet and I am so, so happy we found her. She was just the kind of photographer we were looking for. Her talent is enormous and she is such a lovely and friendly person. Our kids absolutely loved the experience and we were overwhelmed by the results... Francesca made me cry for hours when she showed me how beautiful my family is and how privileged I am for being part of it! We will definitely go back to have some more photo shots done!

Hugely Talented Photographer
My first outing with Jasmine was to Francesca when she was 10 days old. I was nervous because I was still in recovery myself and was worried about how Jasmine would behave and whether we would get any good shots. Francesca is so warm and welcoming and from the second we arrived at her studio we knew we had made the right choice and all my fears were put aside. Not only is she a lovely person but most importantly she is a hugely talented photographer. She has an amazing ability with babies and it was actually quite something to watch the way she could somehow send Jasmine into a trance to get her to pose for her. Jasmine's skin was peeling on her hands and feet but Francesca reassured us that she could airbrush that out in the final images and indeed she did.Overall we were very happy with the photos we got. You will find cheaper photographers but we believe Francesca was worth the money we spent and we would have no hesitation recommending her to other mums and dads of newborn babies.
(Helen Hannon, mum of Jasmine)
A True Artist
I found Francesca by doing a simple Google search and was immediately drawn to her style of work. I was looking for a newborn photographer who could provide "classic", "timeless" photos of my newborn son and I found her! Francesca is a true professional behind the camera and like a second mum to her little clients, she handled my son as if he were her own. Thank you Francesca you are a true artist - you captured a special time for our family beautifully and we will be forever grateful.
(Brigette Stevenson mum of Chris, Lauren, Ethan and Logan)
We decided to take our daughter to Francesca's for a Christmas mini photo session after seeing some of her newborn and portrait work on her website. She was absolutely fantastic! From the moment we stepped into her home/studio, we felt like a part of her family. Our daughter instantly warmed to her and hammed it up for the camera with no trouble at all, due to Francesca's warm and calming nature. The results of the photo shoot did not disappoint and are to date the best gift we have given and received since our daughter was born. Everyone wants to know who took her fabulous pictures! We loved them so much that we've booked in for our daughter's first birthday smash cake photo shoot next month. We highly recommend Francesca DB!
(Kaitlin Krull, mum of Sophia)
Absolutely Adore Our Pictures
We have used Francesca a couple of times and I would recommend her to anyone. We absolutely adore our pictures of Erin and Francesca has such a creative ability to really capture Erin’s personality. Every photo is precious and I cannot wait to use her again. She is fantastically patient and we have always felt at ease. Thank you Francesca for being an amazing photographer – we couldn’t have asked for more!
(Tam, mum of Erin)
Whole Family Fell A Little Bit In Love With Her
We were very excited to have been bought a family photo session with Francesca as a present but also slightly nervous as we were unsure how our two young toddlers would behave. From the moment Francesca greets you, you feel so welcomed and relaxed. She is a charming and bubbly person who is committed to getting the best photos of you and your children no matter how bad a day the kids are having. William was 3 and Lottie was 1 1/2 yrs old - not the easiest ages - yet Francesca captured the most beautiful natural shots in her unwavering patient manner. I think the whole family fell a little bit in love with her. I have recommended Francesca to all my friends, her creativity reminds me of a modern day Anne Geddes
(Sam, mum of Lottie and William)
Wonderful Pictures Which We Will Treasure Forever
We wanted to get professional photos of our son Callum for Christmas presents for our Parents and Grandparents. We hunted on the Internet, but couldn’t really find what we wanted until we came upon Francesca’s website and we were delighted she was actually quite close to where we live. The photos in her portfolio were absolutely beautiful and exactly what we were looking for and we certainly were not disappointed with our choice. The photo shoot was lots of fun, Francesca made Callum and us feel very welcome and relaxed. When we received the photos we were thrilled with the results and we had some very happy Parents and Grandparents on Christmas day. We can’t thank Francesca enough for capturing such wonderful pictures which we will treasure forever. She has a real talent and we feel very lucky to have found her.
(Sarah & Keelan, mum and dad of Callum)
Blown Away By Our Photo Shoot With Francesca
We were absolutely blown away by our photo shoot with Francesca- firstly it didn't even feel like a photo shoot- it just felt like our family playing around in a field! It was so much fun and we were blown away with the photos Francesca took! They are so natural, fun and just AMAZING! We have them all over our house and are constantly getting compliments on them - Thank you Francesca!
(Cat&Dan, mum and dad of Jack and Harry)
We went to Francesca to photograph our 6 week old daughter and we were blown away by how beautiful the images are! So much that we rebooked so that Francesca is our photographer of choice to capture such precious memories as our baby grows. We have since been back to have 6 month photographs. Francesca has a wonderful way with children and shows such love, care And attention that I believe would be hard to find anywhere else. We shall be back for 12 month shots and we are rest assured they shall be equally as gorgeous as the rest xx
(Kerry, mum of Seren Leila-Mae)
We loved our session with Francesca, she was amazing with my son and his cousin and the photos are stunning! We love the style that Francesca has, we have had so many compliments about our beautiful pictures. Thank you for a great shoot! (Louise, mum of Tommy) We loved Lucie's photoshoot with Francesca - she was really good with Lucie and put her completely at ease. Lucie had just started moving so wasn't the easiest baby to photograph!! but Francesca managed to capture some lovely shots, we absolutely love the photos and couldn't have asked for better. Everyone loves them and keeps complementing us on them - which is all down to Francesca's ability to capture such natural pictures. We will definitely be recommending her to all our friends. Thanks xxx
(Liz, mum of Lucie)
Photos of Marko are fantastic. We love them, as well as our friends and family. Marko's photoshoot with Francesca was very good. He was grumpy because of teething, but she was great and made really good photos. Thank you Francesca, we will recommend you to our friends (Ivana, Mum of Marko)
Wow, what fantastic pics! We are so pleased with Francesca's photos of Fletcher, they really are wonderful. She was absolutely brilliant with him, so relaxed and friendly. If you haven't done so already, book a photoshoot now - you will be so glad you did! I really can't recommend her enough! (Anita, mum of Fletcher) Francesca clearly has a flare with kids and she has managed to capture Ben’s true expressions perfectly. We also wanted a picture of Ben for our ‘We have moved ‘ card and Francesca came up with a simple suggestion that demonstrates her creative ability as a photographer. She is extremely talented and the whole experience has been a pleasure (Daniela, mum of Ben)
We are very impressed with Francesca's work and are over the moon with the wonderful pictures she took of our very excited 20 months old. She was very good at making Chloe at ease (and us parents!) and it does show in the beautiful pictures... Everybody has been admiring them and we have had loads printed for the family, they make great presents for proud grandparents and uncles and aunties. We have been recommending you to all our "bumpy friends" and would recommend you to every parent considering baby/toddler pictures. Would definitively come to you again! Thank you xxx (Melusine, mum od Chloe)
Francesca, Lorenzo and I want to thank you very much for the great job you did. During the photoshoot you made us feel completely at ease (especially our little girls) and the results are stunning. The shots are so natural and spontaneous. And the way you processed them in Photoshop is just perfect. We look young again!...!. We really loved the idea of an outdoor photoshoot and best of all for us is that we got a dvd with all the good shots and we can print as many pictures as we like to share with everyone we love. Thanks a million! We'll definitely recommend you to all our friends!!!! (Linda&Lorenzo, mum and dad of Naika and Varshana)
We absolutely loved the pictures of Molly, and I'm so grateful you were able to capture such beautiful shots for us to treasure forever. I don't think we would have had such a personal service elsewhere and you could tell Molly felt so safe in your hands - plus the fact that you were conscious to keep her warm and comfortable at all times (must be why she was so good and slept the whole time!). I couldn't thank you enough and I'd definitely recommend you to everyone looking for professional and talented newborn photographer. (Jaime&Pete, mum and dad of Molly)
