My name is Victoria and I'm a newborn, portrait and maternity photographer based in the Midlands, UK. Blue Bean Photography was born in 2010 together with my second child, and we were the first fine art newborn and baby photography studio in South Derbyshire and NW Leicestershire. The studio is based in the beautiful National Forest village of Blackfordby, located within the crossroads of the '5 Counties' South Derbyshire, North Warwickshire, Birmingham, Leicestershire and Staffordshire borders.

Being a mum helps me understand more the fascinating world of babies, their needs and the environment they come from. It also made me realise how quickly time passes and how precious is to record as many memories as we can. Today I am a proud mother of three little ones and in the last 10 years I have welcomed so many babies into my studio, I have seen many families grow and have created precious memories for them. My style is distinctive, I love working with pure natural tones, organic materials, with wood and wool playing a big part in my style of photography. I work exclusively from my baby photography studio in the heart of the National Forest which means you can relax during your session, all of the props you see in my images are the studios own and can be available to use during your time with us.

I believe in images that last a lifetime. I aim to capture a moment which will never be the same again and beautiful photographs are the results of dedication and passion for what I do. I would love the photography session for you to be a relaxing and memorable experience to remember in years to come. Your child's life has just begun… I would love to capture it for you.
