About Simplicity Photography
"A relaxed, superb and memorable experience..."
- kind words spoken by Joanne, Mummy to Arthur James 12.4.19
My name is Alex Collingwood, owner of Simplicity Photography.
I am a professional, fine art photographer, specialising in newborn photography. My studio is based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire where I provide professional newborn, maternity, milestone and family photography throughout North Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.
I am professionally trained in the art and safety of newborn photography and update my knowledge and skills on a regular basis, so you can rest assured that your little one will remain in safe, capable and confident hands. Your child’s comfort and safety are my number one priority throughout your session. The entire process is extremely calm and relaxed, from the moment you first get in touch.
I pride myself in creating stunning, timeless images that truly will never date – to be passed down and treasured generation after generation.
Keeping your vision for your gallery in mind at all times, I work meticulously to make sure to capture every tiny little detail, ensuring that your beautiful baby is the focus of every image.
From capturing every tiny little toe, to stunning family portraits, I create refined, professional portraiture of the highest standard.
'We often don't realise the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory...'
Whether you’d like to create beautiful wall art to display proudly around your home, or would prefer me to create a stunning heirloom album for you to share fondly and pass down to your little ones, Simplicity Photography products and collections include exactly what you hope for; providing bespoke products of the highest quality, ranging from professionally mounted prints, to impressive wall art in a variety of finishes and stunning heirloom albums.
Hello, Let me introduce myself…
I’m Alex, the face behind the camera at Simplicity Photography By Alex. Partner to Jonathon and first time mum to my beautiful little girl Bella, who is nearly two years old now! I know they say that, ‘they grow up so fast’ and ‘they don’t stay tiny for long’, and believe me, I got sick of hearing it too. But the truth is, those first few minutes, hours, days and weeks with your brand new baby are simply just gone in the blink of an eye.
I started Simplicity Photography By Alex to preserve your precious, once in a lifetime memories of your journey to bring your new bundle into the world, so that mums like you and me who feel heart-wrenched at how fast time flies by can feel content that those tiny fingers and toes are frozen in time to look back on for eternity.
I am professionally trained in the art of Newborn Photography and Newborn Photography Safety and I make sure to update and build on my training and knowledge on a very regular basis.
Previously to starting Simplicity Photography I was a Primary School Teacher for a number of years. Needless to say, I have always loved working with children and families and have a particular love for working with mums and babies, so along with my passion and talent for photography – I feel very content now to have found my true calling.
Becoming a mummy is such a whirlwind, and we can often feel stressed, anxious and feel such a pressure to be ‘perfect’ all of the time. I have certainly felt like this after the birth of my little girl and want to make other mums feel supported. Outside of Simplicity time, I volunteer at a local group each week to support new mums.
Anyway, enough about me! I want to hear all about you’d the special moment that you’d like to capture. I can’t wait to hear from you.
The Simplicity Photography Studio...
The Simplicity Studio is a quiet, cosy little hideaway, tucked away in the outskirts of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.
Life can suddenly become very hectic when children are involved…
A studio session at Simplicity Photography is the perfect chance for you to sit back, relax with a cup of tea (a hot one for once!) and watch me work my magic – capturing your beautiful family on camera, giving you the gift of eternal memories.
