newborn & family photography

Dandelion Photography is me, Ellie Cotton. I am a  birth, newborn, and family photographer. Hello, it's nice to have you here!

My photography captures the natural joy of childhood in a timeless and natural style. My family shoots take place on location to incorporate the beautiful British landscape. Newborn shoots are simply styled to achieve photography focusing on the beauty of baby. I love to create photography which parents to treasure forever,  photography which is an heirloom parents hang on their walls and smile at every single day.

I have been passionate about photography for over 30 years. I also teach beginner and intermediate Photography Workshops for parents who want to learn SLR photography or phone photography.

Ellie Cotton is based in Bollington, Cheshire, and covers Cheshire and Northwest England.

WHERE I PHOTOGRAPH

I am based in Bollington, Cheshire and work across North-West England.

I work mostly with families in Wilmslow, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Alderley Edge. I have a portfolio which incorporates both the stunning rugged beauty of the nearby Peak District and many beautiful locations in towns and villages of East Cheshire. I also enjoy using locations which have a special meaning for families.
