Becky - maternity, newborn & xmas mini 2022
We cannot recommend Rachel at Ruby lights enough!! Following a recommendation from my sister after seeing Rachel’s work on Instagram, we booked Ruby lights for our first ever maternity shoot. From the very beginning Rachel made us both feel incredibly comfortable (quite a task with my shy husband!), I felt so comfortable I ended up doing a fully nude photo which I never would have done in my wildest dreams! Communication was always excellent and I absolutely loved having my hair and make up done and choosing from all the incredible outfits. I felt like a million dollars which is quite hard to achieve when heavily pregnant! The photos Rachel took were beautiful, timeless and artistic, not your typical maternity photo shoot poses which is what we loved. Based on our maternity experience, we went back to Rachel for our newborn shoot (cancelling a booking with another photographer) and I’m so glad we did. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and Rachel couldn’t have been more accommodating, patient or friendly on the day. We’re really looking forward to going back for our Christmas shoot in a few months time. If you’re looking for a maternity, newborn or family photographer to capture any of your special moments we absolutely recommend Rachel 100%. There isn’t a more talented photographer around, you won’t be disappointed!
bernie - boudoir session - sept 22
Absolutely amazing day!! From makeup, hair to photoshoot every minute of it was just stunning. Rachel makes you feel so relaxed and Charlotte makes you feel gorgeous with the makeover. I was so nervous about going but all nerves went as soon as I got inside. If you haven't already had one, the best thing you will ever do for yourself is have a boudoir shoot at Ruby Lights!!! You will not regret it!
Susannah - commercial session - sept 22
Working with Rachel is an absolute delight. We had such a delightful, fun and funny and time and the results are incredible. i felt supported, held, seen, accepted, and so well directed. Rachel sees and supported me to play and to bring myself out of hiding. I have been so shy in my life with the camera, and though this is healing through all the film work we now do, I still really need steady, encouraging precise support, and Rachel is in my dream team. Thanks you Rachel Ruby Light Portraits!
Kate - bridal & boudoir session - may 2022
Amazing experience with Rachel and Ruby Lights! I contacted Rachel about doing a boudoir shoot ahead of my wedding as a present for my husband-to-be. I was quite nervous as this is very much out of my comfort zone but she put me at ease from our first call and I ended up having so much fun on the day. The make up artist did a great job and Rachel makes everything so easy, gently directing you into position and she is so passionate and excited about the process- it really shines though. I left feeling awesome and was so excited to see the finished product. I now have seen my gallery of photos and was blown away- Rachel really has a gift for showing women at their best and if you need a confidence boost then go for it! Will be such a great keepsake and I wish I had done it sooner- can't wait to give them to my Husband!! Thank you so much Ruby Lights!
Carolyn - maternity & newborn April / June 22
We had a maternity and a newborn shoot - both were absolutely amazing; Rachel was so calm and chilled with us that any worries or self-consciousness melted away and we were able to enjoy the session. She got some amazing shots, and incorporated a couple of very special items seamlessly. There was no pressure to buy or upgrade our package (although we did due to the quality of the photos). We'll def be back for more.
Kirsty - maternity & newborn feb 22
Rachel photographed my beautiful friends Maternity portraits recently- I live in australia and am a photographer and wished I could have been there to photograph her myself but when I couldn’t I had to contact rachel My friend Beth’s maternity photos were absolute perfection! Gorgeous makeup and hair, beautiful gowns for her to use and the most precious memories were captured. Rachel went above and beyond and I could not recommend her more! The best of the best! 10/5 stars Thankyou so much! Do not hesitate to book with Ruby Light Portraits!

Samantha & Stephen - newborn session - Sept 2021
“Rache was amazing, the maternity shoot with myself, husband and little boy she made us feel so comfortable and ensured I got the pictures I really wanted despite my last minute requests Zach loved the whole experience I've never seen him take direction from anyone as well as he did, when been asked to get into position. it's all down to Rachel's kind manner. The newborn shoot was equally as enjoyable, I was really apprehensive as had a 8 day old baby and a 3 year old, if I'm honest I thought it was going to be really stressful and a nightmare but it was brilliant and now have pictures that we will cherish forever. I'm so thankful you're super talented and you do such an amazing job lots of love from The Carters ”
Had a maternity shoot with Rachel and could not recommend enough ! Absolutely stunning pictures - really good quality and she makes you feel so comfortable at the studio. I have never done anything like this before and she couldn’t have been more comforting in telling me what to do! Plus you get hair and makeup done included! Looking forward to going back for newborn xx
After having such an amazing experience when having my maternity shoot and the photos turned out outstanding, I just had to contact again and have a family/ newborn photo shoot...made me feel at home, spoke to myself and my daughter through the steps didnt rush us at all, constant use of having coffee and tea and I can’t forget the delicious biscuits you get .. ( my daughter may of eaten the whole jar full or was it my husband haha ) I would highly recommend to anyone who would like any family, newborn and maternity shoots, ruby light portraits is the one ❤️xx
I would say very honest that Rachel is the best. The way she made me feel when i had the maternity photoshoot is beyond me being able to describe it in words. She build up the confidence in me and like that i was being able to do some photos that at first i thought i wouldnt. After having the maternity photoshoot we went back and had the newborn as well. In each picture she takes you can see how much she loves what she is doing and how dedicated she is. Thank you Rachel once again for helping us to create so beautiful memories!

I cannot recommend you highly enough Rachel.
The maternity and newborn shoots you did for my wife and I were amazing, and you've done us so proud. Thank you for capturing our special moments so beautifully.
Fran adored her makeover and wearing your beautiful gowns. We are surrounded by your beautiful pictures all through the house.
I know Fran keeps in touch with you, and we both look forward to more shoots with you as the girls grow up.
Thank you again, and we will be spreading your name 🙂
Best wishes, Paul x
"After seeing the amazing shoots Rachel had done with several of my friends I so wanted to capture something beautiful between my son and I. I have never really had the chance to have professional shoot taken for us before and after seeing Rachel's work it was a no brainer. The photos are like a work of art. On the day of the shoot I felt so at ease being there, even during make-up and hair and my son felt so at ease too ~ it's a lovely room to get made up in and chill out and pick out some gorgeous dresses! Rachel has a wonderful way with children and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning. Thank you so much. !"
"What an amazing experience! Not just getting amazing pictures but the whole day! I went with my friend, we sort of bolstered each other along and whilst Sam was having her pictures the lovely Laura worked her magic with my hair and make up we went for lunch then it was my turn! Rachel's rooms are simply amazing and set the scene and Rachel put me totally at ease I loved every moment and my pictures...well since seeing them I have definitely felt more confident held my head a little higher something I would never have thought of doing has made me feel so different even without managing to lose weight before as I had planned! Thank you to both Laura and Rachel x"
"After realising I had very few photos of me and my children and seeing Rachel's beautiful work I decided to book. I wasnt particularly looking forward to being in front of the camera but I was put at ease the moment I stepped through the door. The two MUAs were incredible and both really lovely. Every tiny little detail of the photos was carefully thought out and the results and incredible. The customer service throughout is of the highest standard which is no surprise as she is truly one of the nicest people I have ever met. Can't recommend enough and certainly wouldn't go to anyone else for photos now!"
last week i made a new friend. this woman is amazing at what she does.
i decided after the horrendous year ive had to look after me! i needed to remind myself who i was and what i deserve.
i saw so many stunning transformations and soon booked in. Rachel was fully booked for half the year and i was lucky to get in when i did.
i screenshot so many images before hand to recreate and on the day i couldn't drive to her home quick enough.
charlotte did my hair and make up and made me feel like a hollywood goddess!!! just wow!! i wanted to go sainsburys to do the shop afterwards just to show off 😂
rach did a shoot plan with the items i brought with me and we were soon underway. i wasnt nervous just joked my way through the shoot.. i could of spent all day there i loved being made to feel like a saucy queen for the day. i really appreciate you listening to my lifes dramas Rachel and making me feel like i am worth it!!! you are a life saver to all women xxxx’’
