Maternity Portrait Photographer London

Maternity Portrait Photographer London

I am so happy to share this portrait of a truly radiant mother-to-be. This was such a joyful maternity photoshoot and I think this image captures the mood perfectly.

Preparing for your photoshoot

I am always very conscious that there may be some nervousness about the photoshoot. Particularly if you are someone who is not used to standing in front of a camera. You may even feel a little self-conscious about how your body has changed and yet still want to capture your pregnancy as a personal record.

My aim is to always make you feel happily relaxed throughout your photoshoot. I believe that to truly capture the energy of the moment you have to be completely at ease with me as your photographer. Some of my favourite portraits that I capture are what I call the ‘in-between shots’. There is always a moment in every photoshoot when it’s almost as if everyone has forgotten the camera is there but I’m still constantly taking pictures. This was one of these moments. You can just see her laughter and happiness and that we were completely at ease.

I do think that having your photoshoot at home also helps with this. It is private, familiar and of course comfortable. With access to your own bathroom, robes, make-up, accessories, and clothes. I am very used to adapting my studio to fit the space when I arrive and I can make it work every time.

Pregnancy & newborn photography

My most popular photography package is without a doubt my pregnancy and newborn package. It is a wonderful way to create a record of your bump to baby journey.

I have a natural and classic style of photography and I like to create pictures that complement each other beautifully. Images that would work well displayed as a series of framed fine art prints on the wall or in a beautifully handmade album. However, you choose to display your finished images I have lots of options available.

For further details and how to book your session please get in touch via my contact page I would love to hear from you and capture this special journey.

Newborn Twin Photography

Newborn Twin Photography …

Photographing newborn twin’s is a truly magical experience. For a newborn photographer, it is one of the biggest joys and I am lucky to have photographed many sets of twins over the years. Working with twins is very different from a single newborn session. Both require experience but it is important to be prepared and to know how to position them safely together.

It takes time to achieve these shots, sometimes one is settled and the other one not and so on. But with a little patience, tenderness and a calming atmosphere, we get there eventually and the results are worth the wait. Two beautiful little babies curled up sweetly together.

Featured picture …

These two were photographed at their home in Kensington London at just two weeks new! I have many favourite shots from this session and it was hard to choose just one for my post today!

My style of newborn photography is very natural and classic. What I love about this shot is that there are no distractions, just a gentle white backdrop and the two of them sleeping peacefully. Mum chose a soft grey outfit for the baby boy and a soft white outfit baby girl. I have a suitcase of freshly washed handmade baby outfits that I bring to each session. You can see some of the other outfits on my Instagram page

Although I have plenty of sweet hats and headbands I do believe that simple is best. I like to focus on the beauty of each newborn, elegant shots that create a lasting memory of this precious fleeting time. The outfits I have chosen are soft and gentle enough not to hide their delicate features.

Timing of a newborn photoshoot …

I understand how private and precious those first few weeks after birth are and I am sensitive to new parents and siblings. I try to respond to how everyone is on the day. Appreciating that everything is very new, that the night may have been sleepless and that they are still getting to know their new arrival or arrival’s! I take time to get to know the family I am working with. Working tirelessly to ensure the atmosphere is calm and relaxed throughout the photoshoot.

I also make sure that the selection process is easy and straight forward. To help as much as I can I offer a complimentary viewing appointment again in the privacy of your own home to help with choices and product selection.

A newborn twin photoshoot takes approximately three hours. Sometimes more sometimes less! I am very flexible and I don’t really like to put a timescale on my session’s. I just know when all the shots have been achieved and everyone is happy. It sometimes requires more time sometimes less. It is very difficult to put a timescale on a newborn baby! I prefer to follow how they are responding on the day.

This week I returned to photograph these beautiful twins again! This time as a family photoshoot with Mum, Dad, and their beautiful older sister. It was a real treat to see them all again, now at that gorgeous cute 3month baby stage but still perfectly small just with cute cheeky baby smiles which were a delight to photograph!

Newborn Photography Session in Greenwich London

Newborn Photography Session in Greenwich London

It has been a while since I’ve had a moment to add to my blog and I apologise for the silence! I have been updating my Instagram and Facebook pages when I can with recent newborn photography session’s. But it is hard to find the time to sit down sometimes!

2020 has got off to a wonderful start with lots of beautiful newborn photoshoots in and around London. I have loved meeting lots of new families on my journies so far and photographing their beautiful new arrivals. There is no greater joy than meeting a new baby and for me having the opportunity to create a truly special record of that time for the family.

Yesterday I was as far as Windsor photographing incredible sweet newborn twin boys! It made me so happy to be there with them. The twins were the most peaceful and gorgeous little new beings! It was also my first time in Windsor! Despite living in London for over 20 years, I hadn’t yet ventured that far, and it really isn’t that far!

I can see why the Royal family love it so much. It’s a beautiful place with a special feel. I loved the small alleyways, cobbled streets and old signage in the shops close to Eton. It felt like a step back in time and it was also a bright sunny day which gave me a spring in my step!

Newborn Photography Session in Greenwich London

Another favourite spot of mine in London (which is a little closer to home) is Greenwich. And this is where I went to photograph this gorgeous newborn baby girl. Greenwich is another place like Windsor for me. Steeped in history with views across London and full of memories for me of walks with my children, from babies to toddlers to the bigger children they are now! Greenwich has been and continues to be their playground! And what a wonderful playground it is too!

This little darling slept through the entire photo shoot. I captured lots of beautiful moments with her parents and this is one of my favourite shots. The blanket is hers and I believe was a gift, I love including personal items in my pictures. As well as using my own outfits and blankets it is nice to include some things which have significance for the family. There is a soft and gentle feel to the folds of the blanket and her sweet peaceful expression with little fists clenched tight as she sleeps makes this picture for me.

Lost in that blissful baby world, safe, happy and loved.

Is there anything better than starting the new year and indeed the new decade than with a new family member?! I loved my pregnancy and newborn photography session’s which took place during and towards the end of 2019 and I’m now looking forward to meeting more 2020 babies and their families!

My daughter was born at the end of 2010 and so it was almost a decade ago since I held her in my arms and brought her home from the hospital. My first baby, I have to say, hopefully without sounding cliche! but it really does feel like yesterday and yet so much has happened in the 10 years since her arrival! Including the arrival of my son just 5 years ago. I remember both of my pregnancy’s vividly. How I felt, how I changed and the incredible people I met along the way who have become dear friends. It’s wonderful to reflect on that time and to see where we are now. I am looking forward to this new decade, to new adventures with my family and hopefully lots of positive changes.

I thought this was the perfect image to start the New Year. It is one of my favourites from a lovely pregnancy photoshoot in Hammersmith with this beautiful mum to be! There are moments during each session when everyone is relaxed and we are all really enjoying the photoshoot. These moments are so beautiful to capture. A natural smile, a giggle, a laugh and ultimately a moment of pure joy frozen in time.

A private pregnancy photoshoot at home is a wonderful way to capture this incredible time in your life. Even if you are unsure if you would feel comfortable in front of the camera, these pictures will provide a beautiful record of this time for you to look back on. I always think of my maternity pictures as a celebration of motherhood, a beautiful way to welcome your baby into the world.

Client Review:

” We had Elle take both our maternity and newborn photos and couldn’t be happier we chose her to capture this special time.I was originally reluctant to have maternity photos taken but Elle made me feel completely comfortable and the experience was very uplifting. She returned a few weeks later to capture our newborn baby boy. The images are absolutely beautiful and we will treasure the prints and album for years to come. We would highly recommend Elle as a photographer. She has been warm, caring and professional towards our family and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results! We look forward to having her back to photograph our family again soon. Thanks so much Elle! x “

Recent Customer Review:

” What an incredible experience working with Elle! We did our newborn and Christmas photos with her and were beyond thrilled with how they came out. Even more, Elle ensured the entire moment was so special for our family. From the prep through to the follow up she was thorough, professional, and collaborative. I had read she was a baby whisperer but didn’t believe it until I saw her with my son. I highly recommend Elle and can’t wait for her to capture the next special occasion with us! “

Newborn Photography Session Battersea London

I know it is getting close to Christmas and feeling very wintery out there today in London! Which is why in have chosen this gorgeous shot of a newborn baby boy. Taken at one of my recent newborn photoshoots in Battersea.

I love this floppy tassel hat and just look at that pout! I was actually very lucky to return and see this little one again recently for a Christmas card photo shoot. He had grown so much! I will definitely share some of the pictures from our Christmas session soon but in line with tradition, I will wait until the 1st December before officially launching any Christmas pictures!

As a London based photographer, my Client’s come from all corners of the world. It is one of the things I love most about this city and my work. At each photo-shoot, I meet a family with a story of how they came to London. It is so refreshing and fascinating to hear about their journeys. I love sharing in a snippet of their lives and capturing something truly special. Of course, nothing is more special or precious than the arrival of your baby.

Family and Baby Photographer

Capturing family moments during my newborn photoshoots is one of the highlights of the session for me. Especially when Grandparents are around. I find frequently with my sessions in London that the grandparents have flown in especially to be on hand to help their daughter and son. It is so touching that families help each other in this way and the bond between mother and daughter remains ever strong. I have come to realise that becoming a Grandparent must be one of the most joyful times in your life. As my children grow I can imagine just how much I am going to miss their childhood days when they eventually become adults and leave the nest. I can imagine the thrill of living through those happy days again with grandchildren. But this time of course without the added stress of being a parent but all the joys of being a grandparent!

It is so true what they say! Grandparents can spoil their grandchildren, do all the fun bits and then give them back! And why not! I absolutely will!

This shot for me is the sweetest, the happiness on their faces and the little babies’ hands gently clasped together with the most peaceful expression. I loved getting to know them all during their photoshoot and hearing about their journey. From America to London and also how she met her wonderful husband.

They also left me a wonderful google review:

” Elle is a baby whisperer! She was able to capture the most beautiful pictures of our little boy at only 13 days old. She came to our house and made our little one (and us) feel very comfortable. We are so happy with all of the photos!”

Newborn Photography at home in South East London

Mother & Baby portraits

Photographing a mother and her new baby is one of the greatest joys of newborn photography. My newborn photography sessions take place in my Client’s home during the first 1-3 weeks following birth. When everything is very, very new for both the parents and their newborn baby. With this in mind, it is always my aim to put everyone at ease as soon as I walk through the door. To ensure the photoshoot is relaxed and calm for the new family. Travelling to their home so that they don’t have to leave the front door and can continue to rest and ‘nest’ with their new baby is definitely a major factor in this.

I am able to create a studio in homes of all shapes and sizes. The first thing I do when I arrive is to find the best space in the home for my studio. Ensuring it will be intimate for the parent portraits, well lit and warm for the new baby. I bring numerous handmade newborn outfits with me and I often show them to the parents before we start so that they can choose their favourite pieces. All my outfits are super soft – perfect for baby’s delicate skin.

I remember the early weeks following the birth of my daughter. I actually didn’t leave the house for the first three weeks and when I did I was so very nervous! Pushing my new precious little girl in the pram, worrying that she might start crying or I would need to feed her in public! I remember it as if it was yesterday. Like all parents, I needed time to recover from birth and time to get used to being a Mum. These thoughts are at the forefront of my mind at every photoshoot.

Newborn Photography at home in South East London

This picture was taken at a recent newborn photography session at home with a family in South East London. A first time Mum cuddling her beautiful baby. There is so much tenderness in this shot and love. It makes me happy every time I look at it.

As always a huge thank you to the family for letting me into their lives at this time and for allowing me to share this beautiful image! It is one of my favourites.

I have been looking for quotes that could sit well with this image. I have once again been drawn to the wonderful A.A. Milne!

Client Review *****

” Elle is a baby whisperer! She was able to capture the most beautiful pictures of our little boy at only 13 days old. She came to our house and made our little one (and us) feel very comfortable. We are so happy with all of the photos!”

Newborn Photographer Wandsworth

I’m always grateful to receive feedback from the families I photograph, it means so much. I have chosen just one picture from this lovely newborn photography session in Wandsworth. It is a peaceful picture of this beautiful 13-week old baby. I love the simplicity of my black and white newborn pictures. His little hands clasped gently together and the tiny contented smile starting to appear. What is he dreaming about?!

Baby Whisperer

One of the biggest compliments I receive from my Client’s is the title ‘baby whisperer’. This phrase or title seems to hold some kind of magic but truly most of the work is done by the new parents. Trusting me and keeping calm during the photoshoot all help to create the perfect atmosphere for a newborn photo shoot. A big part of making this magic happen is also the photoshoot taking place in your own home. The home is the perfect warm, safe and peaceful environment for both parents and their new baby.

Before each session, I send a few helpful tips to prepare. Throughout the session I encourage lots of breaks for feeding and cuddling, ensuring your little one is cosy and happy.

This is the most enjoyable part of my work. I love spending time with newborn babies. I honestly can’t imagine a more magical time to photograph a family. In my opinion, this is one of the most important moments in life that just has to be recorded. The newborn stage is all too fleeting for us parents and I love to think I have in some way frozen part of it in time.
