Hi, my name is Ria Brennan and I am a professional Berkshire newborn and family photographer also covering surrey and London. I started Roses and Poses over 10 years ago specialising in wedding photography. After having two kids of my own I fell in love with capturing those precious family moments which in turn made me move onto family and newborn photography.
My favourite part of family photography is capturing the craziness of it all! I love the jumping, the playing the tantrums and the laughter. I aim to tell a story with my photos, to capture families and newborn’s in a way that is creative, honest and full of life. To do this my style of photography is laid back and relaxed which helps bring to life the energy and true personality of you and your family.
Aside from chasing my kids around the garden to get that perfect shot, my other passions are being outside, I can not stay in for too long I get cabin fever which annoys my other half. I am a complete coffee addict since buying my own coffee machine which helped me through the first 6 months with my second child.
I am originally from good old West London and moved to a little village in Berkshire when my eldest was 1 and I have never looked back. I love my village and the lovely community that surrounds it. I love the idea of small local business coming together to help each other out.
I love music and dancing, no I can’t sing to save my life but after a wine or two I think I’m Adele.
In the future I want to help others to enjoy photography. I hope to one day create a medium which can help amateur photographer pick up new tips and tricks for free. I am all about re-educating your self in something that you love.
“Ria came to my house for a newborn shoot in September and she was amazing. Despite having a baby that refused to sleep and it taking much longer than planned, she was fabulous and we got some brilliant shots of my 2 little girls. Super happy and would recommend her to anyone”
“We used Roses and Poses for newborn and family shoot in May. Ria came to my house with everything she needed and immediately put my older son at ease by playing games with him and letting him look at the photos she was taking of his new brother, it meant that we got some very natural and relaxed photos of them both together which I adore”
“Ria was fantastic at capturing some beautiful moments with our newborn and his brother. She made us feel super comfortable during the shoot and the pictures truly reflect her passion in photography. Thank you! “
“Ria was just the best! So friendly and calming on my baby (I fell asleep in the room whilst she was taking photos she was that relaxing to be around), as well as took beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. We have recently had one printed on a large canvas that we just love. Thanks Ria!”
“I’ve had two shoots with Ria now.. the first one was just my two girls and she captured there personalities perfectly... I loved the pictures so much I wanted to get some of us all... Thank you Ria for making the photo shoot so fun for us and making some great memories we will treasure forever”
“Had a fantastic shoot with Ria to mark our little ones first birthday and the results were beautiful, we loved all the photos and found Ria professional, reasonable and so efficient. Thanks so much”
“Had an amazing photo shoot on Sunday with two children aged 4 and 1. Ria was superb, clearly a pro with children, capturing beautiful images and their personality perfectly. They had a great time and we can't wait to share the gorgeous photos. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back for more photos in the future “
