My History

I am a newborn photographer based in Crook, County Durham. I have been taking photographs since I could hold a camera. As it turned out I had a natural flare for being creative and what was a hobby became my passion. Things moved on and I got my professional qualifications and have never looked back.


My belief is based on that my customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I have many years of experience and am registered with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and also have a full advance CRB police check as I work with children. I am also a member of the British association of New Born Photographers [BANP]. I always put the safety of the baby 1st & will capture those precious 1st newborn memories for you & your family to treasure for years to come.




Val Fairhurst is a registered member of several photography groups and has been a photographer for over 20 years.

  • Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers [SWPP]
