bristol baby photography

My name is Pattie and I an award winning photographer, artist …and a proud Mum of two. My own children are my greatest inspiration. I love taking pictures of them and being able to enjoy the happy moments once again while looking at the photographs.
I would love to help you to capture your precious family memories: the excitement of an expecting mum’s bump, baby’s first steps and birthday cakes. Adorable newborn’s tiny toes, cute creases and happy smiles. The wonderful family time, full of fun and laughter… The family portraits are amazing mementos to look back at as the time passes. My aim is to create statement photographs that go on your walls, into photo albums, or make a nice gifts for your loved ones.

About Your Portraits

My photographs are natural, personal and artistic. I use my creative and technical skills, as well as professional equipment, to ensure the highest standard. I love creative challenges, and will tailor your portraits to your family.
My sessions range from classic portraits to relaxed lifestyle photographs. Depending on your circumstances, I can offer an outdoor or a location photo session, or a studio one. The photo shoot can take place in the comfort of your own home or any location of your choice, or at my home studio set up.
Please have a look at the Gallery page to see some examples of my work. I am very open to new ideas, so if you have your own vision, I would love to discuss it.
I hope to provide you with fine art photographs for your home display. I will advise any printing and display options for you, and help you to prepare your photographs for frames, canvases, photo albums or other printed products.

I will consult you before your session, listen to your needs and preferences, so I can plan the best experience for your family. The photo shoot can take place in the comfort of your own home or any location of your choice, or at my home studio set up. The session flow is tailored to you and your children. I am fully flexible, patient and understanding.
PolkaDots Photography provides all required equipment, lighting and the studio set up. I like playing with the composition and provide a wide selection of props, baby outfits and backdrops. And you are welcome to personalise your portraits with your favourite outfits, toys and other, significant items.

About Me

I have been working with art, photography and video making for over ten years. After completing my BA and MA degree in Media Production, I worked as a freelance photographer and then spent four years teaching Media Production (including photography) at the University of the West of England. I have featured in art exhibitions, and assisted multiple art projects. At the moment, a few of my photographs achieved bronze bars and national competitions, and several others are graded at national awards.
Having my first baby inspired me and redirected my career. I realised how much I love taking pictures of her to capture how she grows, and to show who she really is. I wanted to share my talent and passion with other parents, helping them to capture their precious family moments. This started PolkaDots Photography.
I love working with children, especially with babies. They always amaze. Each child is unique, and I love capturing their individual beauty. I am formally trained and experienced in working with children and posing newborns, and I’m fully hands on. I prioritise the baby’s safety and would never perform any risky activities in my photo sessions.
