My camera and I are here to capture the joy and innocence of childhood, when everything is possible and the world is full of magic and games. Every day moments of love, play and laughter are often taken for granted. A timeless and beautiful family or newborn baby photograph can bring back those first days of your child’s life and remind everyone of fleeting moments of excitement and love. The photo shoot is never rushed, there will be plenty of time for games, feeding and nappy changing.
London Newborn Photography
The important thing is to have fun and enjoy your day.
When it comes to newborn baby photography, you can sit back and take a well deserved break while I patiently settle and pose the little one. I have 8 years of experience working with babies and have learned a few tricks along the way. Calm atmosphere and the safety of the newborn are my number one priority and I will adjust my poses and style to what suits best our little model. Baby’s safety and comfort always come first!
This is the sort of baby photo shoot you simply can not get back. Within a few weeks your tiny newborn will have outgrown that stage.
Planning Your Photo Shoot
Maternity sessions are best organised in weeks 32 to 36. We will discuss in advance if you have a preference on how you would like to be photographed on the day. This will be an intimate and relaxed photo shoot where you are in the centre of it all. Together we will create some beautiful photographs to help you remember this unique stage of your life. I will provide props like fabrics and a maternity lace robe but of course you’re welcome to add your own personal touch to the session.
Newborn pictures are best taken in the first 10-14 days after birth. This is when they are at their smallest, sleep well and are easily posed. Once you have decided you would like to book a photo shoot, get in touch with me as early as possible so I can pencil you in my diary and save a slot for your session in the weeks around your due date. Flexibility comes with newborn photography in London and I always do my best to accommodate my clients as best as possible once the baby is born.
Newborn photo shoots are always set up in the comfort of the client’s home to ensure everyone involved is comfortable and relaxed. The first couple of weeks can be testing for new parents, so rest assured there’s no travelling involved from your side. A typical session lasts 3 to 4 hours with plenty of breaks to settle the little one, feeding, nappy changes or cuddles. I will provide all props and we can discuss in advance your preference for colors and styling.
If you have missed the first couple of weeks after birth, we can still recreate some of the newborn images, it just means that the baby will most probably be a bit more alert and slightly bigger. I will always adapt my style to each family to personalise the experience and ensure you are left with some beautiful memories from our day together.
When it comes to family portrait photography, it’s all about having fun and capturing the bond between all of you. I will encourage kids to be silly, play and dance and anything else that will help to bring out their character. These sessions are more flexible and can be done both on location or indoor. We will discuss what will work best for your family.
What to wear? Sometimes a simpler outfit works better on pictures so it’s good to have some plain white t-shirts on hand. It’s best to have a selection of 2 to 3 outfits with both whites and colors and any accessories or toys you feel will make the photo shoot fun and relevant to your family story.
