A Little About Me

Allow me to introduce myself; I am Lydia Baker and I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years. Photography is so much more than just a job for me; I truly love capturing such precious moments and creating perfect little time capsules for you to treasure.

I adore getting to know each client and what they are hoping to get out of a shoot. I like to think that a little humour combined with a relaxed approach to my photography means I can capture the most beautiful, natural shots. My shoots are often very fun and playful, especially when children are involved. Being a mother myself, I understand the importance of allowing little ones to feel relaxed and happy. This combined with some slight, subtle direction makes for some fantastic photographs.

When I first started Willow Studio, I never dreamed it would become something this special. I have always known that I wanted to be a photographer and upon receiving my first camera at the age of 14 my hobby grew into an incredible passion. From capturing a baby's first few weeks to the sweetness of the everyday; a walk in the park, a day out to the beach - I love how every shoot gives me the opportunity to tell a story and preserve a little slice of your history.
