Newborn in peach basket



Kirsty & Rebecca

We could not recommend Gaynor enough! Our little guy George had his Newborn Photoshoot at Tiny Violets and we had such a lovely afternoon. Gaynor had so much time and patience whilst he decided he didn’t want to sleep and the photos absolutely show it! At no point did we feel rushed, it felt more like she could have just kept photographing George all afternoon! We couldn’t have asked for better results. We were made to feel so welcome and at ease as soon as we entered the studio and the heater that was moved to keep our little guy warm the entire time was the loveliest touch! Can’t wait for another excuse to book another session!! Thank you again.

Can’t thank Gaynor enough for my newborn photo shoot! She was absolutely brilliant with my little girl She was extremely patient … It took us about an hour and a half to get my daughter to sleep ready for her shoot but I didn’t feel rushed in any way what so ever! The communication regarding when my prints will be ready etc has been fab! I am in love with my canvas ~ Such great quality And I am privileged that Gaynor has requested one to put up in her studio! I would definitely recommend ShyViolet Photography xx

Gaynor is an absolute gem. What a fantastic experience. Instantly felt at ease and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would not hesitate to recommend Gaynor to friends and family to capture those special moments. The pictures are gorgeous, thank you.

Cannot recommend Shy Violet Photography enough, photos are absolutely amazing. Gaynor is so lovely and patient and immediately makes you feel so comfortable. We came all the way from Liverpool and it was definitely worth the drive. I will 100% be going back for more photos as my little one grows.

Gaynor is absolutely fabulous! Had the best afternoon having a newborn photoshoot! She made me and my husband feel so comfortable and at ease and her studio is beautiful. We cannot wait to see the photos as the glimpses we did see looked amazing. Gaynor encouraged us to get into a few of the photos too, which now we are home we’re really pleased about. Thank you Gaynor.

I chose Tiny Violets studio because I just love the creative art that Gaynor offers. And I really liked the fact that Gaynor includes these in the prices she offers. On booking we discussed what I liked and what I didn’t so that Gaynor knew when we met what I was after. Gaynor did lots of more natural shots on blankets with tiny headbands and teddy bears and things and we ended up buying a lot more of the more natural ones as well. I had a C section and was still quite sore at the shoot but Gaynor let me relax and just sit with her so I could see all that was going on. My husband got involved in a few of the shots helping Gaynor move our little Henry into various poses. Just the best experience. Thank you Gaynor.

Jenny Pierce

Gaynor’s studio is very welcoming as is Gaynor. We liked the fact that we could just sit and rest whilst Gaynor worked or could be involved too and we did a bit of both. The studio is full of props and outfits, hats and headbands and the tiny teddies collection is so cute. We struggled to choose but Gaynor offered suggestions and we got some really lovely photographs of our little boy. So many it will be hard to choose.

Sophie Norton

The whole session from start to finish was lovely, Gaynor made us feel so welcome and at ease when we arrived and really looked after us whilst we were there. We loved the fact that we could sit beside Gaynor while she photographed our little girl – we felt very involved. The studio is so bright and colourful and a really lovely place to be in even if you weren’t having photos! Thank you Gaynor and we look forward to seeing our photos soon.

Georgina Mason

I cannot thank Gaynor enough for the beautiful photographs of our newborn daughter Maisie. We chose the package with the keepsake book and the quality of these books that Gaynor produces is like nothing we’ve ever seen before – just stunning. We loved the shoot and we love our album – would definitely recommend Gaynor over and over.

Leanne Murphy

Thank you Gaynor for making our newborn shoot such a fun and memorable experience. Thank you to for the absolutely amazing photos we have so many gorgeous ones to choose from we want them all.

Katy Butterworth

We’ve just had a newborn photoshoot with Gaynor and our little boy Joshua at only 8 days old just didn’t want to sleep. Gaynor was so patient with him and we now can’t wait to see the photos. The whole experience was a lot of fun for us and we weren’t expecting this. Highly recommend Gaynor for her patience, the lovely outfits and props she has … and her lovey studio where we were made to feel so welcome.

Tony Elmore

We booked in for a newborn photo shoot for my baby girl when she was 10 days old, and took our 7 year old to join in. Gaynor did an amazing job on the day, it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and nothing was rushed. Lots of great ideas and outfits were tried on, and the end pictures blew us away, they’re absolutely amazing, we love them. I can’t recommend Gaynor enough, I’m sure we’ll be back for more photo’s in the future!
