Summer Johnston Photography Rawtenstall, Lancashire

I am a newborn, wedding and family portrait photographer based in Rawtenstall, Lancashire.

I began welcoming clients into my home studio in the picturesque village of Irwell Vale, Ramsbottom. When my business began to flourish I quickly outgrew my little home space and decided to open my first photography studio in the historic Lancashire town of Rawtenstall, nestled in the Rossendale Valley. 

I started to develop an interest in photography in 2010 after the birth of my first son and have been photographing newborns, weddings and families ever since.

I have since trained with Melanie East and Tracy Willis, who are both experts in the field of fine art newborn and child photography, where I learnt the techniques of posing and lighting and most important of all how to pose newborn babies safely. It is such an honour to capture these early moments, and everybody loves sharing their baby photos, so making sure I’ve set them up perfectly is so important.

With more than 10 years experience as a wedding photographer too, I will blend into your big day, taking your wedding photos in a fun and relaxed way. Highlighting your most treasured memories on your wedding day.

I also offer photo shoots for expectant mums, and have taken some beautiful, memorable maternity photos. 

Take a look at my blog for examples of my recent work. You will find examples of cake smash photos and sitter shoots (for babies that are sitting unaided).

Thanks for visiting.
