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.

Blackheath Newborn Photoshoot

I am very happy to share this mother and baby portrait taken at a recent newborn photoshoot in Blackheath London.

Parent and baby portraits form an important part of my newborn photoshoots. It is tender moments like these that will be treasured by both mother and child for years to come. If my Clients don’t feel camera-ready that is not a problem. I have many other ways of including parents in the photoshoot to show the gentle care and love they have for their new baby. Such as using hands to cup the perfectly tiny feet or cradle their hands. 

On the day of the photoshoot, I will arrive at your home with my portable studio, lighting, backdrops and my suitcase of beautiful handmade baby outfits, headbands, and hats. All items are carefully selected for softness, material and the natural look they will give the photographs. 

Once I have found the best spot in the home to set up the first part of the session is often spent chatting whilst we get your baby ready. I like to get to know my Client’s and put everyone at ease, even the most camera shy! I am very used to working with new parents as well as newborns. As a mother myself, I can relate to the emotions and anxieties of those first few weeks. I want to make the experience of a newborn photoshoot easy and enjoyable for everyone. This starts with travelling to my Client’s home. Taking any stress out of the day.

When to Book

Newborn photoshoots are best scheduled during the first three weeks following the birth. This is the ‘newborn’ stage and it is incredible how quickly they change! If possible please book your photoshoot in advance. I recommend after your 20-week scan. This ensures that I will be able to fit you in when your baby is born. I will reserve a time period around your due date for natural deliveries. For planned deliveries, we can pre-book the photoshoot date. 

For further details and full price list please contact me via my booking page, I would love to hear from you!

Capturing moments of joy with family photography in your home 

I loved returning to Wimbledon in South West London recently to photograph a family a first met two years ago when they asked me to capture the pregnancy and newborn pictures for their first baby. 

This beautiful moment was captured at their home during the newborn photo-shoot for baby number 2! Whilst Dad was soothing and feeding the new arrival I quickly took the opportunity to take some pictures with these two. Making sure they had some special mother/daughter time together. You can see how much fun they were having and how relaxed they both felt in front of the camera. I love that this shines through in the picture. 

Family moments

Like most mothers I often feel that I’m not very often in pictures with my children. It is always me after all who is behind the camera making sure I capture all those precious milestones. I love creating a record of my children’s childhood for them to look back on. However, I can’t help but notice how often I hear from my friends and Client’s that there just aren’t enough if any pictures of them with their children. 

For this reason, I like to make a point of capturing some special Mum pictures in every photoshoot. After all these are the ones that your children and grandchildren are going to treasure the most. 

I would love to hear from you and capture your next milestone for you, please get in touch here

Client review:

I have always been a bit wary of these types of photos but Elle took beautiful pictures and is so gentle with your baby that you’re so happy for her to coax your baby into positions. She just knows babies and you don’t feel under any time pressure if your baby needs feeding or changing. I now have beautiful pictures of my beautiful little girl to treasure forever.”

Baby photography

Thank you so much to my Client for this beautiful review and for permission to share these beautiful shots I took of her newborn baby girl! Isn’t she beautiful!

In my opinion it doesn’t matter when you choose to photograph your new baby. It will always worth capturing them at any stage. Some of my Client’s manage to book before their baby has been born. In this instance I can guarantee I will be available to photograph their new baby in the first 2-3 weeks following the birth. However for some of my Client’s they simply hadn’t thought of newborn photography until their little one arrived. It is after all hard to think of everything when you are becoming a parent for the first time! My advice is to get in touch at any stage. After all even though they are rapidly growing before your eyes they will never be this small again.

I have photographed new babies up to 5 & 6 weeks old and the results have been just as lovely as the first two weeks.

If you have missed the newborn stage it can also be worth waiting until they are a little bigger. When they are able to sit unaided or push themselves up on their tummy’s. For example between 4 – 6 months old. These session’s are also great if you have older children and you would like to have pictures of them altogether. If the older siblings are still quite small (ages 2- 4) and unable to safely hold the new baby, waiting for the baby to be a little stronger and sturdier means that they will all be able to comfortably sit together. It is a great way to capture some beautiful family moments. Also at this age there will be lots of beautiful baby smiles and the children will have had time to all get used to each other and create the brother and sister bond.

First Year Photography

Another option is to capture all the key stage sin the first year! These year book session’s are very popular and need to be booked as far in advance as possible. You will receive three photoshoot’s spread over one year at stages as you choose. To capture your family developing and changing.

Newborn Photographer Maida Vale London UK

I love this newborn photograph from one of my recent session’s in Maida Vale, London. Mixing my classic black & white style with some colour images. For families who would like a little colour with their session’s.

These are becoming increasingly popular and I’m really enjoying the results. This little one is photographed wearing my gorgeous forest green tassel hat which has matching shorts (off camera in this shot). This set looks equally gorgeous in my classic black & white style. I’ll be adding more colour pictures from recent photoshoots to my website soon. I’d love to know what you think!

You can contact me for further details about my classic black and white photoshoot’s and my mixed colour and black & white photoshoots here

Also I’d like to give a huge thanks to all the families who have been kind enough to leave a review on my google review page. I’m so grateful to have worked with you all and thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.

Is it Friday already! Where has the week gone? Zooming by to February, but I can’t lie I am always glad to wave goodbye to January and February and welcome the warmer months of March & April. That’s if we don’t have March snow again this year!

I’ve been busy the last few weeks welcoming 2019 babies into the world with their first photoshoot’s. It’s been a pleasure and I’ve even had the joy of photographing a few sets of newborn twins. Is there anything more magical than newborn twins sleeping together! I’m sorry if I have mentioned this before but I’m always in awe of the after every photoshoot.

Props for newborn photography

I’m in love with some of my handmade newborn set’s from from etsy. Fresh for 2019 newborn photoshoots. I love starting the new year with some new props and outfit’s for my photoshoots. There are so many incredibly talented newborn prop makers on Etsy.

I choose handmade knitted hats, nappy covers as well as some of the beautiful vintage lace and soft felt rompers. The fact that they are handmade makes them extra special and unique. I bring a suitcase full of them to every newborn photoshoot for parents to choose their favourite look for their baby.

My style is natural and for the colour photo’s I use beautiful pale lilac’s, pinks, blue’s, green’s and silver greys. These work just as well in my classic black & white style which is loved by the families I photograph.

Family and Children Photography

As I was editing recent session’s for my blog and website I came across this beautiful picture from the last photoshoot I shared. The smile on her face brightened my day! I’m sure it will yours too. Captured whilst we were waiting for her new baby sister to be camera ready. (fed and burped!).

I think we were mid dance at this point. Which gave a beautiful, natural movement to the shot. I love to have fun with children. Their photoshoot should feel non pressured and enjoyable for them. It also helps to be setting up the studio in their home. Adding to the excitement and also ensuring they feel at ease.

There are some more older children portraits on my baby and family page here

Thank you for looking, please feel free to contact me for details and pricing.

Hello 2019! I can’t believe we are mid January and this is the first time I’ve found a moment to blog.

Pregnancy and Newborn Photography South East London

It’s been a gentle start to the year for me, welcoming lots of beautiful newborn babies and even a few sets of twins into the year. As well as quite a few pregnancy photoshoot’s for 2019 to be babies!

I’m so happy to share some more pictures from some recent photoshoot’s with you. I am always so grateful to my Client’s for permission to share their pictures with you all!

With my work and also looking after my own two little ones there is hardly a moment left. I am sure all parents can relate to this juggle, whatever age your children are. You are needed in so many different ways. Often feeling like super Mamma or Dad!

Review from Client:

” Elle captured both of my pregnancies and thus both of my girls as newborns. There were three years between the two babies, but I wouldn’t have considered going to anyone else the second time. Elle captured gorgeous and flattering pictures, on all occasions.

Elle is very patient, calm and gentle, and puts you at total ease. For me personally, this was needed – after all, few feel their best when heavily pregnant or having just given birth, but also for our second daughter esp. As a severe reflux baby, sadly she generally only screamed at that point in time. But with Elle’s help, we were able to capture some beautiful pictures, with the baby even nodding off for small moments of time.

Elle was also happy to include our miniature sausage dog in some of the photos for all shoots – after all, he’s one of the family too :)”

I’ve chosen a few pregnancy and one newborn photograph for my blog today. I will also have to share the glorious sausage dog picture mentioned in my Client’s review above! I absolutely loved their little dog!

It is always a thrill to be asked to return to capture the second pregnancy and newborn. It’s an opportunity to catch up again and to see the little newborn baby I first photographed two years ago as a bouncy happy little girl getting ready for her new baby sister! I think these shots capture that excitement and enthusiasm without any need for further words!

I hope you enjoy them!

1 …. 2 … 3!

Photographing the pregnancy and baby pictures for baby number three! Having captured babies one and two for this lovely family it was a joy to be asked to return again! This time for a baby girl after two boys!

I have so many favourites from all of our photoshoots over the years. I will post a little gallery of these when I have more time. For now these are just a few very special bump to baby shots. With mummy and her baby girl.

Each time I return to capture this growing family I am greeted with so much warmth. The pictures from our previous photoshoots are lovingly displayed around their beautiful home. With such care and attention. Taking pride of place in much of the home. There are very few possessions I treasure more than pictures of my children. I am aware of the importance of being asked to capture these precious moments for families. For that reason every photoshoot is completely unique. With different emotions and feelings captured on camera. I am constantly reminded of the enormity of a parents love. 

At the moment I’m in the midst of  a Christmas rush of orders. I am busy squirrelled away in my office editing, retouching, printing, designing albums, frame layouts, gift vouchers and ensuring that everything is ready to be delivered in time for the big day! Everything is looking so beautiful. I’m enjoying my stunning new Elle Fallon packaging and the incredible quality of my mounted fine art archival prints. 

There is still time to order your Christmas gift voucher if you haven’t had time to purchase that perfect Christmas gift!

Please contact me through my booking page for details and bespoke packages. Standard gift vouchers can be purchased from my gift voucher page

All gift vouchers are personalised and come in a gift box with a set of miniature Green & Blacks chocolates! Perfect to nestle under the Christmas tree.

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! xread more

I can not recommend Elle enough. Her timeless pictures plus her at home service is why I choose Elle time and time... again. We invited her into our home for a newborn photo shoot with our son. He was quite unsettled yet that didn’t stop Elle. She instantly became best friends with our 18M old daughter and was able to capture the most gorgeous pictures. Elle was extremely patient waiting for our son to feed and relax. Having Elle shoot our daughters newborn pictures I knew exactly what I wanted. Elle was then able to do her magic and I could not be happier. Elle we love you and we look forward to our next photo shoot. xxxread more

I felt at ease throughout the pregnancy session and came out of it with some amazing shots!

Thanks so much Elle xread more

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!read more

Elle has captured some really amazing pictures of our daughter and our family - the finished photographs are above and... beyond what I had hoped for. Before we even met, she took time to explain the process over the phone and by email. When she came to our house for the shoot, she made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed - and she was so great with our baby...she was the baby whisperer and put her to sleep so we could get some amazing pictures. I really hate having my picture taken, too, but Elle's calm and kind manner put me totally at ease for the shoot and even though I swore I wouldn't get a picture with me in it - I ended up loving one of them. She's fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone!read more

Elle has photographed both of our children at c.10 days old and we love the pictures. She creates a calm environment... with no pressure and works around what the baby needs - feeding every 10 minutes not a problem! The images she creates are beautiful, and prints at a high quality. I'm so pleased we chose to invest in newborn pictures, it's amazing how quickly you forget what they were like when they're tiny.read more

I have never come across another photographer who not only captured the beauty of my two daughters and their newborn baby brother but the incredible care, with her calm nature she took with such a tiny baby. She is beyond talented and I will be using her regularly to capture these moments of my children as they grow.read more
