Baby Photography Session Putney South West London

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.

Baby Photography Session Putney South West London

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.

So happy to share a few of these intimate moments from a newborn photography session in Kensington, London.

I love the size of the rose next to her little clenched fist! A reminder of just how tiny and precious she is. The newborn stage is as fleeting as a rose. Our beautiful babies are not little for long and it is as always a privilege to capture this time.

I always recommend capturing family and parent portraits during your photoshoot. Even if you’re not really feeling camera ready. There are often few opportunities to be photographed altogether and these are the pictures your little one will no doubt treasure the most when he / she is grown.

Daddy popped back from work during our photoshoot, giving me enough time to capture these beautiful family and Daddy shots. Some of my favourites from our session.

One of the best parts of my job is the amazing network of families I have had the opportunity to meet over the years. Sharing in one of the most incredibly happy times of their lives. A small moment in time captured forever. I want the memory of the photoshoot itself to be as happy as the pictures.

This week and indeed the next few weeks on the run up to Christmas are some of my busiest yet. I have a packed week of newborn and pregnancy photoshoots. And there will be lots to do to prepare all the orders and images in time for Christmas gifts. I do love this time of year though! Starting with Halloween this week to kick off the festivities! My 8 year old is going to be ‘Moaning Myrtle’ from Harry Potter this year! I’ve never seen someone so in love with their Halloween costume. Any opportunity she gets the Harry Potter cape is back on!

Have a great week everyone!

I’m just loving these family and newborn photographs from one of my recent photoshoot’s in South London. How beautiful is this older brother and his newborn baby sister!

He was just the sweetest boy to photograph. absolutely head over heals in love with his baby sister. I love the way her eyes just opened as I took this shot and caught her smile at her big brother. Just as he kissed her head. It’s beautiful moments like these that make me so happy to be doing the work that I do.

We then did lots of ‘just big brother’ shots whilst baby was being fed. I love this one where he is looking just off camera but has a gorgeous natural smile! We were mid conversation about something and I can’t remember what. I’m always chatting away to my subjects and as I have a nearly 4 year old boy I’m quite up to speed on what’s cool and what’s not. At least I think I am!  So I’m often chatting about Paw Patrol or PJ Masks … I’m an expert on Thomas the Tank Engine!

I was so happy with the results from this session and even more so when Mum was pleased! For me it’s not only the results of the photoshoot that are important to get right but the entire experience. From start to finish I want every moment to be enjoyable and effortless for my Clients.

It’s been a busy few weeks and the run up to Christmas is always extremely busy for me. (Yes preparations start now!). It does seem to get earlier every year but I like to be organised. Ensuring all orders, gift packages, frames and albums are prepared and dispatched in time for the big day! I also have lots of Christmas babies booked in over the festive period which leaves little time free so I have to be super organised. Juggling lots of things is what us mums seem to do best though! It often amazes me how much can be crammed into one day!

With that being said it’s time for me to return to my edits. I have a full day of retouches ahead and then a newborn photoshoot in Balham tomorrow. Then I shall be taking a short break with my little munchkins over half term!

Let the pumpkin picking and carving commence!

I hope you enjoy these and thank you as always for looking.

I’m delighted to announce. That as well as covering London. I am now available for pregnancy, newborn, baby & family photoshoot’s in the Kent and Surrey area. Please contact me to see if I cover your area.

Below are a few of my favourite shots from a recent pregnancy and newborn photography session in London. I loved both of these photoshoot’s. It is always such a joy to get to know the new parents-to-be during their pregnancy photoshoot. Then returning again when their little one has arrived. What a privilege to be one of the first to greet the new arrival.

Before a photoshoot is booked I often chat with my Client’s about what they would like to achieve from their photoshoots. Either over the phone or by email. Whichever is most convenient.

I specialise in black & white photography and I absolutely love the classic and timeless quality these pictures have. However, I do think a little colour can add something special to the session too. Especially if shot in the same natural style. To compliment the black & white images. By popular request I have started to introduce these to my photoshoot’s and I hope you like the results!

Colour images are available on request when booking your photoshoot. Simply request the black & white with colour options. The session fee and pricing are the same.

I’m really pleased with this set of images. I love the shades of the flowers we chose for their daughters headband. The muted grey with the oversized flower hat. Soft and subtle shades that don’t distract from their newborn baby. I believe simple is best when it comes to pregnancy and newborn portraits. For me it’s about capturing the magic of that time. The feel of the moment.

Coming to my Client’s home’s for their photoshoots allows us to take as much time as is needed. To get to know each other in a relaxed way. It also eliminates any travel stress for the new parents and parents to be.

A pregnancy photoshoot typically lasts two hours and a newborn photoshoot can last anywhere between 3 – 4 hours.

I have years of experience working with newborns and babies. I’m more than happy to answer any questions you have prior to booking your photoshoot.

October & November dates are filling up very quickly now and we will soon be on the countdown for Christmas! Has anyone started shopping yet? or is that jut me? I have to admit I love this time of year!

If you would like one of our special Christmas vouchers for your loved ones do get in touch. Early booing is recommended.

Sharing a few moments from my newborn & family photography session in West London with these beautiful people.

Lets talk about the last few weeks of pregnancy and the first weeks following the birth of your baby. These are not only busy with all the last minute bits of organising, DIY and jobs that need to be completed. But are also completely exhausting and overwhelming.

I like my pregnancy and newborn photoshoots to be the easy and most relaxing part of the journey. I know this sounds very cliche to say!

In the midst of all the chaos and tiredness I want to just arrive at my Client’s home. with my portable studio to capture the beauty of those moments. To help everyone to stop for a moment and to relax. To remember to just breathe and enjoy holding & kissing their new baby. Whilst I capture all of the magic on camera. Then once everything is done and the moments are frozen in time. I’ll pack up and leave so everyone can return to their rest and recovery. Waiting for their gallery to be processed and edited. I’ll then return again to help with selection of the photographs. So there really is no need for the new parents to leave the home with their new baby.

It is a very specialist service and one that requires, consideration to the new parents needs. Careful planning and arranging and dedication.

Once chosen each image is carefully retouched and prepared for print. I work with London’s best printers, book binders and framers to produce exquisite handmade products for your photographs. Digital image package options are also available.

All details are available via my make a booking page. Simply fill out the form and I will send a full brochure to you x

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! The newborn session was even better and Elle was able to calm down my toddler and include him in some of the photos, I can’t wait to work again with her on a family session later on! Thanks so much Elle xread more

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!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
