Hey and welcome! We are Samira and Rachel the creative, passionate and talented photographers behind Hey Little You Studios! We were two local competitors who together have combined our expertise and vision to offer clients an amazing photography experience.



We are both parents to 4 kids between us which means we’ve seen it all before! We are fully aware that children decide to have an almighty breakdown right at the moment you want them to behave impeccably. We get that and thats why we have plenty of tricks up our sleeves to make sure your child enjoys their photo shoot. We want your child to leave feeling like they have had a play date rather than a photo shoot!

Samira is our in house baby whisperer! Her amazing ability to calm babies means parents often want to take her home with them. She has photographed over 250 babies in her career and specialises in both birth photography as well as newborn photography. With two young boys Samira is also well accustomed to toddlers, little kids and the unpredictable nature that comes with them! Her skills in building lego master pieces will one day win her an award or at least impress our little clients that visit the studio.

Rachel is our creative soul, she’s at her happiest when she has a glue gun in her hands producing ‘Blue Peter badge worthy’ masterpieces for our photography setups! She has a love of all things pretty and sparkly but can also make a mean cardboard dinosaur. Rachel also has 2 children both with polar opposite personalities. One is a rule keeping, shy, quiet character and the other a wild child full of (how do you put this nicely!) personality! From this Rachel can adapt to ensure all children feel welcome and at ease in the studio.

SO together Samira and Rachel form Hey Little You Studios. Their skills and devotion seem to form a perfect partnership. Their love of providing clients with outstanding customer service and passion for creating beautiful, timeless images is the ideal combination. Like two peas in a pod they share the same vision for the company and are equally as scared of balloons as each other! Yes you read that right, an inflated balloon can bring them both out in a sweaty panic. Please drop us a line or pick up the phone to have a chat about booking a session for your little family. We would love to hear from you.
