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.

Google Review *****

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.

Newborn Photographer Kensington

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.

Pregnancy and Newborn Photographer London, Kent and Surrey

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.

Newborn Baby Photoshoot West London UK


Newborn Baby Photoshoot West London UK

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

One of the greatest parts of my work is getting to meet and work with so many incredibly kind and lovely families across London. It’s a privilege every time I am welcomed into someone’s home to capture their precious family moments for them.

I am often one of the first to meet their newborn baby and to spend time with them as a family. The last one to capture the beautiful shape of a pregnancy bump before baby arrives. To capture those delicious gummy smiles before the first teeth break through or to celebrate that all important milestone of turning one! Sometimes even capturing those tentative first steps.

When I arrive at a photoshoot I always first assess the layout of the room. I then set about creating the studio. I do this whilst chatting to my Client’s and their children. Ensuring that I get to know them and putting everyone at ease. I think it is important to try to tune in to how your Client’s are feeling at that time / on that day. I’m always asking how their night was? Did they get enough sleep? Did their children nap?  Is everyone well? This helps me to format the photoshoot accordingly to ensure my Client’s get the most out of the session.

To be a newborn photographer you have to have this in your nature. Patience and understanding of a babies needs are key to getting those final shots. Newborn photoshoot’s should never be rushed, if a baby wants to feed for an hour then it is much better to wait and let them do so.

I’m often asked what my most popular photoshoot is or what I enjoy photographing the most and I usually answer pregnancy and newborn. It is without a doubt on of the most special times to capture and one which is so very fleeting. These pictures will be treasured above all else in years to come and it’s important to get it right. Which is why it’s important to choose the right photographer for you.

Another stage I love to capture is the 4-6month baby stage. Those beautiful chunky arms & legs and gummy smiles! With personality leaping out into the pictures! The next popular stage is of course the one year celebration photoshoot. Where on many occasion I have captured and been a witness to the very emotional first steps! It’s always a joy to capture those.

I am often asked by my Clients to return year after year to add to their family galleries. So you could say I photograph all ages from newborn to teenagers! In fact I worked with two amazing teenagers this weekend at a family photoshoot in Kent. These photoshoot’s feel very different to my baby sessions.  I absolutely love working with teenagers and older children. Capturing their expressions and personalities in simple yet striking portraits.

I am a huge fan of black & white photography but I am always happy to include some colour options for my Clients.

I like subtle hues and natural baby portraits. I’ll be adding a few more of these from recent photoshoot but please do enquire for further details.

You can also keep up to date on my facebook and instagram pages.

Islington Baby Photographer


Islington Baby Photographer, a few shots from this wonderful and fun baby & family photoshoot in Islington.

I love the ‘baby stage’ and this little one was just so adorable! My favourite is definitely the shot of him with his lovely big sister. I photographed her when she was the same age as her brother in these shots. It was a delight to return and add to their family gallery.

Between the age of 4 and 6 months your baby enters that really cute, chubby baby stage and they just keep getting sweeter. As their personalities develop, their sense of humour and their love for their family. It’s wonderful to capture these moments and expressions on camera.

My baby photography sessions are very popular and follow on beautifully from a newborn or pregnancy photography session. Or equally wonderful just as a special treat to capture your little one as he or she grows. whatever the reason for choosing to have a professional baby photoshoot the results will be yours to cherish forever.

I think it’s the little things that we sometimes forget, like the shot of this little one on his tummy doing ‘superman’ arms. I remember this so well with my little ones. The gorgeous giggles and all the dribble!

I think beautiful pictures deserved to be displayed and kept in the best possible way. So that they can be enjoyed. As well as digital image packages we offer a bespoke framing service. Working with London’s most experienced framers, each frame is handmade to your specifications and to suit your home. I have a wonderful range of samples that I will bring to your home for you to choose and to match the colour scheme of any.

We also have beautiful handmade albums, produced in a range of leather colours with your family name and date embossed to the front. This is the classic and most traditional way to store your photographs. It is also my daughters favourite as she adores opening the albums and reminiscing with me.

With Summer finished and the new school year started I’m feeling full of energy and ready for my Autumn sessions. It is one of my busiest and favourite times of year! Christmas photoshoots get booked up very quickly and September is very full. All photoshoot’s for Christmas gift orders should take place before 10th November to ensure products and images can be prepared and delivered in time for the big day!

Keep an eye on my page for further details and updates.

Thank you
