Pregnancy and Newborn Photographer Chelsea London UK

The beginning of something so magical, irreplaceable …. the start of a great adventure! I love my pregnancy and newborn photoshoots. Capturing the very start of the precious and wonderful rollercoaster journey that is motherhood.

I always think of these photoshoots as a celebration of the beauty of pregnancy. Even though 9 months can feel like a lifetime especially towards the end! It is at the same time so very fleeting. Which is why I feel it is important to make a record of your pregnancy. For yourself and for your children. It is wonderful to look back and remember how incredible your body was in that moment.

These are a few of my favourite pregnancy photographs taken at a recent photoshoot in Chelsea. I always travel to my Client’s so that they don’t to leave the comfort of their home. This really helps to creates a private & intimate atmosphere. Taking the pressure and hassle of any journeys across London away. Essential during the third trimester as far as I’m concerned!

My pregnancy and newborn photography packages are very popular. I think even more so now than when I started in London 10 years ago. There is a growing appreciation and love of celebrating womanhood and motherhood in this way. I love the thought of showing my pregnancy pictures to my daughter & son in years to come. Showing them just how incredible a woman’s body is. Whether you keep them for your own personal record of have them lovingly displayed in your home. My portraits are always artfully and tastefully done. I love black & white photography which is so beautiful for maternity pictures.

After the pregnancy photoshoot, I prepare the gallery of images for viewing and thenI wait for the news! I am so lucky to be one of the first to meet the new baby. Part of that special group of visitors, allowed in to share in the joy the first precious few weeks. I am always aware of what a privilege this is.

The key to being a newborn photographer is patience, skill, understanding and technique. Being experienced means I know how to soothe and position newborn babies with their comfort and safety as my priority. I also understand that a huge part of my session’s is making sure Mum & Dad feel relaxed and comfortable. This is early days for everyone. I want the entire experience of the photoshoot and the pictures to be a memorable and happy one.

I bring lots of exquisite handmade outfits for the newborn to wear, backdrops, studio and lighting! A professional studio will pop up before your eyes in your lounge. Whilst you rest and feed your baby.

For further details please contact me, I would love to hear from you!

The finished results are displayed below. The pregnancy to newborn journey. Thank you so much to my Client for permission to share these with you!

A wonderful family & baby photoshoot, celebrating the arrival of this beautiful newborn baby boy!

I love this photograph of mummy with her precious new baby. The position of his little hand is so sweet. Isn’t he just the perfect little bundle. It really is the most precious time in your life. Through all the tiredness and challenges of becoming a Mum of two, the moments when you can just hold and enjoy your new baby are priceless. For me personally I felt so much more relaxed with my second baby. Not only because I knew what I was doing more but because I knew he would be my last newborn. All the sleepless nights felt far less challenging and I soaked up those nighttime cuddles as much as I could.

As always a mini photoshoot with the older sibling took place. Whilst the new baby was being fed and soothed. She was such a sweetheart with her little bunches! We had lots of fun spinning around and singing songs. I took this picture just at the end of a sequence of spins and her expression is so mischievous!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Easter holidays! We are just returning to normal in our house. The children are back at school and I’m catching up on my orders and preparing for this week’s photoshoot’s. Spring is one of my favourite times of year and today the pink blossom is blowing down my road. Raining across my window. I’m smiling thinking of my children having a blossom fight on their way home yesterday. The street was thick with pink petals and they ran and threw them in the air! It was such a wonderful moment.

I am now taking bookings for may, June & July (and beyond if you are super organised!). Weekday and weekend session’s are available.

I cover all of London, some of Surrey and most of Kent. I have regular Client’s in Kensington, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Westminster, Camden, Islington, Wimbledon, Chislehurst, Bromley, Kent, Sevenoaks, Greenwich, Blackheath, Lambeth, Lewisham, Surrey, Canary Wharf, Holland Park, St. Johns Wood, Notting Hill, Dulwich, Clapham, Balham, Fulham, Battersea and Central London. I am often returning to see my Client’s for pregnancy, newborn, baby and family photography session’s. Welcoming the new members to the family with their first pictures and capturing those precious family milestones.

Thank you

We had a newborn/family photo session with Elle and highly recommend her photography sessions. She was very patient with my little ones and managed to get beautiful shots despite my temperamental kids! She was very professional and her work captured some lovely moments with my newborn and my family. Highly recommend her services!”

Newborn Baby Photographer in South and Central London

It is with so much pleasure that I share these beautiful shots with you today. The sun is streaming in through my window in my South London studio and I’m enjoying working through my retouching and edits from recent newborn, baby, pregnancy and family photography sessions. There is no greater joy than returning from my photoshoots to unveil these beautiful treasured moments. I always have an idea of what I am capturing on the day but the true excitement is when I can see the shots in full detail.

For this Client I have mixed black and white with some beautiful subtle colour shots. This in an increasingly popular choice for my Client’s. It is lovely to see how well the black and white newborn photographs work along side the colour images.

All outfits and props used in these photographs are my own. I bring a range of beautiful handmade baby clothes and accessories to every photoshoot. Quality is important to me so all outfits are handmade by specialist newborn photography prop makers specifically for my photoshoots. Fabrics are soft and gentle fo baby’s skin and I hand wash each used item after every photoshoot in non biological, sensitive baby detergent.

I’m in love with the little pearl and lace romper used on this beautiful newborn baby girl for her photoshoot. It works just as well in black and white as it does in colour I think.

For this family I have prepared a beautiful handmade leather album and a stunning set of prints in a beautiful handcrafted wooden frame. I have a range of finishes for albums and frames which can be chosen at your private viewing following your photoshoot. These accompany digital image packages beautifully.

I am always working to improve and provide the best service and products for my Client’s. Offering the best on the market and constantly researching and working with my suppliers to stay ahead of the trends and provide the best quality and value for money.

Newborn photography is a very specialised area of photography and requires experience & knowledge to work safely with newborns. I have over 10 years experience working with newborns, baby’s, children and their families. I have photographed hundreds of families over this time and build wonderful lasting relationships. Returning to see my client’s year after to year to photograph their changing family.

Pregnancy and Newborn Photographer, Battersea London UK

I’m so happy to share some of the pictures from my recent pregnancy and newborn photography session with this beautiful couple and their newborn baby.

We even managed to sneak one in with their beloved cat! A request that is becoming so frequent and popular I might add a pets section to my website! But isn’t she magnificent! definitely the boss of the house! Perhaps I need to add this to the cats of instagram page (@cats_of_instagram).

Capturing the before and after portraits. The bump to baby story is one of my favourite parts of my work. It’s so lovely to get to know the soon to be parents before their baby enters the world. To capture those moments before two become three. And create a lasting memory of those precious moments.

It is also a great time to get to know each other. Before I return in a few weeks to meet their newborn baby. Without a doubt one of the greatest privileges is to be added to their list of ‘people to call’ to announce the news!

I love these beautiful shots of their newborn baby. Just so peaceful and perfect! It takes me back to the first days with my children. Newborn’s are so incredible and such a joy to be with. I can’t lie I love that I get to sneak a little cuddle each week whilst photographing these little wonders!

As mothers day is approaching I am busy preparing lots of beautiful gifts for mothers and grandmothers. I have some stunning new handcrafted frames and my team are busy working on my new website with product pictures. Soon to be revealed hopefully!

Mothers day gift vouchers are also available and selling fast, contact me via my bookings page for details.

Newborn Photographer Blackheath Greenwich London

It is such a joy to share some of my pictures from a recent newborn photoshoot in Blackheath. I actually found it too hard to choose one or two for this gallery! With the kind permission of the family I am sharing a collection of my favourites!

These images form part of a wonderful selection made by the family. They chose a combination of digital images and frames for their pictures.

All digital images are retouched and professionally prepare for print. This is the finished result! The frames are all handmade here in London and delivered to your door. I even come back to your home after your photoshoot to help with selection and to take you through the different frame options and finishes. I bring a large sample case with me so that my Client’s can find the right finish for their home. Frame corners can be held against the wall and measurements taken to ensure the right images fit the right space.

After a very quick arrival into the world, gifting her Mum & Dad with the most amazing story for life! This magical baby girl was a pure delight to photograph.

I also had another connection with Mum as we are both the youngest of three girls and both have almost the same name!

Newborn photography session’s are best booked before your baby arrives. This ensure that I can fit you in within the first three weeks following the birth. Although it is not possible to book the newborn photoshoot date I will reserve a time period to allow for late or early arrivals. If you are having a planned delivery we can pre-arrange the photoshoot date. Occasionally I do have last minute spaces and it is still worth checking availability with me even if your baby has already arrived.

What a beautiful Spring day! I know it’s only February but the sun is so warm and the sky is so blue today. It feels like Spring is well and truly on the way.

Yesterday Andy and I treated ourselves to a day off on the Southbank. Like many working parents we rarely get time together without our children. We have busy schedules with photoshoot’s and it can be hard to grab some time together. We went to see the fantastic Diane Arbus exhibition  at the Hayward Gallery. One of my favourites spots in London. I loved gazing at the original prints which have been lovingly put together. 1950’s and 60’s New York caught on film and frozen in time forever. I particular love her children’s street photography. Not surprisingly! The outfits, the faces! It’s a beautifully executed exhibition and well worth a visit.

We even had time for a quick delicious dim sum lunch at Ping Pong and made it back in time for school pick up!

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.

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!

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.
