Based in the idyllic Minster town of Southwell, Nottinghamshire, Oh Baby Photography specialises in Newborn, Baby, Maternity, Cake Smash, Family and Brand photography.
Hi, I’m Millie and I’m the photographer at Oh Baby! Since I can remember, my passion has always been photography, and for me family is everything, so being able to combine the two genuinely is perfect & I’ll be forever grateful to have the opportunity to capture photos that will last you a lifetime.

the studio setting
Southwell is always a place that I think of when I think of the word home. My family moved into the town itself in late 2018, but we’ve lived within a 5 minute drive pretty much my whole life. After moving here, and being able to just pop to the shops or walk up into the fields it’s made me appreciate this beautiful little town so much more than I ever have and I just knew it would be the perfect setting for my studio & my dream business to grow.
The location of the studio itself is perfect, being just at the top of King Street there are so many cafes and beautiful boutique shops within a seconds walking distance, so if you’re travelling to get to the studio, then I highly recommend you make it a full day out!
visiting the studio
My studio is the perfect size for all, so if you want to bring your other half, your best friend, your own mama or all of your other little loves along then there’s plenty of room…but on the other hand you may want to use this as a chance to sit back and have a bit of me time while you can. And being honest, that is the main thing I’ve always wanted for my studio, for it to be a place of calm. For you to be able to treat your session as a chance to sit back, take a break, sip a coffee, read a magazine, play on your phone, or whatever you normally never get the chance to do, even if that be just nipping to the toilet on your own for once, it’s still a luxury!
oh baby style
My style of photography is very minimalistic. I don’t work with bright, bold colours, as you’ve probably noticed all of my images are very white and neutral - soft & calm is the vibe I’ve always been drawn to.
I’ve always loved the way that photography has the power to capture the real and is able to hold onto one single moment forever, and for that reason I don’t tend to pose little ones at all, except for of course placing the teeny tiny newborns into position! I don’t wait for them to be sound asleep and super quiet, I let them stay awake, smile, laugh, cry, fidget around, whatever they please, because that is them, and that is their personality.
All of these details of your teeny tiny little love - their tiny fingernails, that random tuft of hair on their head or the debatable face that the pull when the camera’s turned onto them are exactly the big things that you’ll want to remember.
Which is the great thing about my style of photography…it provides you with just that.
