With over ten years experience photographing little people and their families, I know exactly how to capture images that you will love.

The sessions are fun and relaxed but my professionalism and attention to detail ensure that you will come away with photographs you will treasure for a lifetime. 

Whether you are pregnant with your first baby or you have children in their teens, it would be an honour to photograph you and your family.

Kate was brilliant with our little one on her newborn photoshoot and went above and beyond. We are thrilled with the finished photographs and will definitely use Kate again. Highly recommended photographer.



My gorgeous natural light studio is located in the lovely village of Pill, between Bristol and Portishead. It is just 15 minutes from Bristol city centre and less than 10 minutes from Clifton. Conveniently located just off  J19 of the M5 it is easily accessible for North Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Wales.

The huge windows are fantastic for creating beautiful soft light on even the darkest of days. This makes it is the perfect setting for natural family and newborn photography. 

I like to keep my set-ups fairly simple so that the focus remains on your baby or child.  However I have a wide range of carefully selected props available to use during your photoshoot. 

If you would like to see me at work in my studio you can watch a video of a newborn photoshoot here.

What a wonderful day in the bluebell woods with Kate and my children. We all felt so at ease and this really comes across in the beautiful photos and just in time for Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to do it all again next year 💙

We had a wonderful newborn photoshoot with Kate. She put us at ease right away and was so gentle and kind with our Son. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. If you’re looking for a photographer then look no further!

What can I say?! Kate’s professionalism and attention to detail was gold standard. Her experience with photographing newborns really shows and we were so blown away by the quality of our photos of our little girl that we simply couldn’t choose a selection and wanted them all! Thank you so much Kate, you’re a credit to your job and we would be delighted to recommend you to anyone looking for a newborn photoshoot.

We've just had a 'sitter shoot' for our son, 8 months old. The photos are absolutely beautiful, I couldn't decide on my favourites as they were all so good. Kate is friendly, welcoming, was great with our son and is very talented.

We were given a voucher for Kate Kirby photography 2 years ago as a wedding gift. We would not usually have a professional photographer take our pictures because I can achieve the same result with my new Huawei P30 Pro! How wrong could I be... Kate has taken the most beautiful pictures of our daughter, in a surrounding suggested by Kate, at the most incredible time of day for the lighting, things an iPhone can not do and Google can not suggest. Kate achieved this with a calm demeanour creating a relaxed environment for our daughter helping to achieve smiles and not tears. Thank you for your time and expertise.


I am proud to offer my clients a stunning range of bespoke wall art. There are samples on display in my studio and I can create mock-ups with your photographs. This means you will know exactly how your art will look once it’s up on the wall.
