Hi, I am Jemma Marie.
Welcome to the home of Moments Captured by Marie – Morecambe’s best bump to baby photographer!
I’m a married mum of one beautiful little girl from the North West, and I’m absolutely passionate about providing a premium service in a relaxed and friendly environment. When I’m not behind the camera you can find me hanging out at local baby groups, baking up a storm in the kitchen, or holed up in my tiny office working on some new sewing patterns for the most adorable baby outfits!
Moments was born way back in 2016 when I discovered a love of capturing portraits (of people, families, couples, animals… you name it and I would shoot it), but it wasn’t until I fell pregnant with my first baby back in 2017 that I realised my passion truly lied in bump and baby photography. During 2017 I began researching posed newborn photography extensively, with the aim of creating beautiful portraits of my own baby once he/she was born. Unfortunately things went a little wrong and our baby was lost fairly early on in the pregnancy, which has subsequently given me a real passion for working with the families of rainbow babies in the studio, and recently bereaved families through Remember My Baby in hospitals and hospices in the local area.
Happily, I fell pregnant again relatively quickly and we went on to have a beautiful baby girl in the summer of 2018! During that second pregnancy I attended several in person and online workshops to learn my craft, and subsequently began taking on free sessions to build up my portfolio and gain practice and expertise in the field. Fast forward to 2021, and I’m now a local leader in the field! I’m absolutely passionate about what I do – I’m constantly learning new posing techniques and editing skills to really polish and perfect your finished images, investing in training, education and studio props to stay on top of current trends and ensure you receive an absolutely first class service from the moment you book, to the moment your images are delivered!
With over five years experience, and over a hundred families photographed, you can be sure that you and your family are in the safest of hands! Fully safety trained in all aspects of maternity, new born and baby posing, I’m ready to work with you to achieve beautiful, dreamy, posed images of your gorgeous bump and of your new baby from birth to their first birthday, capturing all of their special milestones as we go!
“Recently had an amazing maternity shoot with Jemma. She was so patient and put us all at ease. She has taken some gorgeous photos of our family that I will treasure. Nothing was too much trouble and Jemma really took the time to capture some lovely moments for us. Can’t wait for our newborn shoot next!”
