Let me tell your story!
Welcome to Hopes & Dreams Photography!
My name is Leanne and I am a very busy mum of seven beautiful children, along with being a photographer of course. I am an in studio photographer and work out of the comfort of my home studio. I also use professioinal studio lighting.
Our children just grow and change ever so quickly. For this reason, I believe that capturing different stages of their lives is so important as you simply just can’t get those moments back once they have passed. Photographs, unlike other tangible items in our lives, are timeless and are probably one of the most important and valuable possessions we own.
Getting beautiful images of your children and family is priceless and will last you a life time!
I have had a lot of experience with newborns and children....... trust me!
I began my journey in photography after having a newborn session with my rainbow baby.
Unfortunately in 2016 I lost identical twin girls at 23 weeks and of course as you can imagine, it was a very difficult and devastating time for me and our family.
I then went on to have my rainbow baby two years later, a baby girl.
It was at this time that I realised that I had never had any newborn photos done for any of my other children and after such a tragic loss, I decided that we would be having newborn photos, family photos and sibling shots done.
This was the moment I fell IN LOVE with photography!
I have been working hard, researching, learning and growing, building my portfolio and taking images ever since.
So for me, photography was such a blessing in disguise and has helped heal my heart. It has brought me such joy and I have found peace, knowing that my beautiful baby girls had opened such a huge door in my life and a passion for me to pursue.
I now find such peace, passion and happiness capturing these forever moments for all my clients and am looking forward to being able to do the same for you!
Everyone has heard the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words!"
Photographs truly capture moments in time and tend to make us feel some sort of emotion.
My images freeze that emotion, tell your story and are yours to treasure forever.
I use my camera to document special moments and feelings, in your and your families lives.
They are magical, priceless and yours, forever!
Through my images, I invite you to bring pieces of my stories into your life and home. With prints, photo books, canvas prints and various other printing options. Your images will truly come to life and be a part of your heart and home.

The best time to book your newborn session, is actually whilst you are still pregnant. The second or third trimester is optimal to secure your spot and to ensure that I have a place for you when your baby arrives.
The best time to book your maternity session is in the the third trimester, when you are well and truly showing that beautiful baby bump.
