We really enjoyed the photo shoot experience with Elle coming to our home. She made us feel at ease and was very good with our baby. We now have a fabulous collection of photographs to remember our baby as a newborn. Really pleased with our prints that I’m looking forward to hanging on the wall. Would highly recommend!

Elle is a master of her craft. She loves what she does and this comes through during the photoshoot and the entire process of working with her. We used Elle for my maternity, newborn and one year photoshoots and have nothing but praises to say about the photos she took. She captured the moments beautifully and artistically and we will cherish these forever.

Elle made everything very easy during our photos. She was good at making sure the baby didn't get grumpy from the experience and I think our baby really enjoyed some of it! The photos that we have ended up with are really sweet and something we will clearly treasure forever. I've felt awkward doing photographs for weddings before but this felt much more natural - possibly because little bubs is the centre of attention in these photos! Highly recommended.

We loved having Elle come to our home to take newborn photos of our first baby. She came when our son was 12 days old so we were still establishing feeding etc and she was wonderfully patient. We were delighted with the outcome and found it difficult to pick our favourite photos for the digital package. We love that Elle can do a mix of colourful and cute images and more arty black and white

Elle photographed our first daughter at one week old and she was absolutely magic. She is a total baby whisperer - with her calm voice and the relaxed atmosphere she created, she was able to coax our little one into some really sweet little moments. The photos are classic and very natural - a perfect reminder of that first tiny newborn stage! We ordered a full album of photos from Elle and it is exceptionally high quality and something we can treasure forever. Elle came to our flat to do the shoot in July 2020 and everything was very Covid secure and practical, including Elle wearing a mask when she was holding the baby. She’s also great with the parents, helping us throughout the shoot and with selecting the photos for the album. We can’t wait to have her back to photograph the family again in the future (maybe some little siblings...) and would definitely recommend her!

Elle photographed our little boy when he was 3 weeks old. She was so lovely and good with him during the shoot. He was quite unhappy that day, but Elle was very patient and we managed to get some lovely shots of him and our family. The photos turned out great and we are very pleased with the result. We would definitely recommend Elle to anyone.

We received a newborn photo session from our best friend as a gift and it’s the best ever! The whole session was extremely relaxed, Elle was lovely and extremely experienced, she knows exactly how to guide us for the best effects and she is a baby whisperer too. Our baby boy didn’t make a fuss at all during the whole session, of course, we absolutely loved the photos 🙂 we have booked Elle again for 100 days photo shoot and look forward to it already!

I would highly recommend Elle for newborn photography. Elle came to our home to do our newborn shoot when our baby was just under two weeks old. Elle is extremely professional and knew how to settle our baby for the perfect shots. We felt very relaxed throughout and had time for feeding and changing - a very stress free environment! The finished pictures are absolutely beautiful, and we wanted to purchase all of them as they were so good. Thank you Elle, for capturing these moments for us and creating pictures which will last a lifetime. Emily and James.

I booked my newborn session with Elle, for my now second daughter. Knowing she did home visits was a great relief as I had an elective c-section. My daughter arrived 3 weeks early and Elle was very accommodating and flexible which was lovely. Elle has a calm and warm nature & this really put me at ease during the shoot and definitely was reflected in the images she captured! She was so patient with my 2 year old who joined in the shoot and even managed to convince me too take some pictures which I’m so happy I did as they are great memories of such a special time! Thank you once again Elle xx

Fantastic experience. It was my Xmas present from my husband and I am so glad he had this idea. We have a 10-month old baby and it was great to capture some moments with the three of us.Elle is very professional and very friendly. She has clearly a lot of experience in dealing with kids/babies. She really put us at ease and took her time to make sure we would get great pictures.The quality of the pictures and block desks is excellent. They make us smile every time we look at them!

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

Elle was kind and patient with our son, and the finished article was better than we could have hoped for. She made us all feel at ease and during the process of calming a 1 year old was magnificent. Nothing was rushed and everything felt natural. The quality of the photos, frames and production were worth every penny.

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. xxx

I had both my pregnancy and newborn sessions with Elle. At first, I was a bit concerned since I am not really comfortable in from of a camera but she’s been so great. 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 x

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!

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!

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.

Our experience with Elle was outstanding from the moment she walked through the door to the end of the shoot. The photographs she took are pure magic. 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.

We had a fantastic experience with Elle and would highly recommend her for anyone looking to capture their baby’s first few weeks in a beautifully natural and timeless style. She was incredibly patient, leaving lots of time to settle our baby and work around feeds, even giving us a few helpful tips from her own parenting adventures. Very professional and reliable and quick to respond on emails. The quality of her work is great and we were really pleased with the finished images and retouching. If you are considering Elle as your newborn photographer, don’t hesitate to book her up!

I had my baby photographed by Elle when he was 4 weeks old, Elle made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. I highly recommed using Elle for this special moment. She took her time, was patient and knew how to get the right shots with my little one. The quality of the printed photos, frame and books are brilliant. From the photo shoot to selecting the pictures to the delivery of them Elle kept in touch with me, let me know whats happening and the delivery was super fast. Book her straight away you will not be disappointed.

Client testimonials


Natasha, Luke & Dylan – London SW5

” Elle photographed my son when he was three weeks old and I am taken aback by how beautiful the images have come out. She captured his character perfectly and was amazing at keeping him calm throughout the shoot. I would just like to thank you Elle for creating such amazing memories for our little family, it was such a lovely day and the photos will be treasured forever. Natasha, Luke and baby Dylan xx ” 

Denise Gallagher – Camden North London

I can’t recommend Elle enough. She has photographed both of my children and I absolutely love the results. She has such a warm and natural style and is so tender with newborns. She was also amazing with my toddler and made her feel very special during the shoot. Capturing newborn photos is so special as they only stay in that curled up phase for such a little time. Also, the fact that she comes to your house with all the equipment is amazing as the last thing you want to do is go to a studio with a newborn. Don’t hesitate, book your session now!”

Rebecca & Tim – Streatham London

“Our experience with Elle for maternity and newborn pictures was an absolute pleasure from the word go; from the hugely helpful email exchanges initially about what package go for and how to prepare for the shoots, to the days themselves where she put us all at ease instantly (absolutely amazing given we were sleep deprived parents to a 6 day old at the time of the newborn shoot), and the beautiful images we now have on our walls.

Elle has magic newborn baby whisperer hands and that shoot was probably the quietest, most calm few hours we’d had in those first 6 days.

I couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone looking to create some very special memories of a wonderful and unforgettable time in the comfort of your own home. And in fact I already have on Facebook several times.”

Oksana – Notting Hill, London

” Elle was amazing and captured the most gorgeous pictures of this amazing time in my life. I couldn’t be happier with the result. Elle really knew how to put me at ease, I am so pleased to have found her. We will definitely be taking some pictures with our baby son with Elle next. I can’t recommend her highly enough!”

Ekaterina – Chelsea, London SW3

“Our family had such a fantastic experience with both pregnancy and new born photo sessions. Elle manages to create very cosy, gentle and relaxed atmosphere. Even kids who don’t like to be photographed find it interesting to take part in the process. And the result is absolutely stunning – the captured moments are to cherish and share with family and friends. “

Ran – Wimbledon, London SW1

“We had Elle come to our place for my first pregnancy shot and also two sessions of newborn photos for my son and my daughter respectively, we are so happy with her work and service. She was extremely patient with our newborns who were both quite difficult to settle. She gave us lots of time to feed and settle the little ones, so that we can take the best photos with no rush. She’s also amazing with babies herself! I am so glad we found her as the photographer, otherwise newborn photos would have been impossible for a new mum like me! After the photo taking she also made personal trips to our home just to explain the options we can choose for products, made our lives much easier to know what to order! We are very happy with the photos she took for us, will definitely recommend her service to any parents or parents to be.”

Natasha Sharma – Chelsea

” Elle is a very talented photographer. She came to our place for our daughter’s photo shoot. She was calm, friendly and very patient.Elle is excellent with kids and makes the little ones really comfortable. She took stunning photographs of our little one. I am so glad that we choose Elle to capture some of our daughter’s beautiful moments. I am looking forward to invite her again for another session as the final photographs are amazing and I am totally in love with them.”

Andrea – Raynes Park, London SW1

” Elle managed to take some truly stunning and beautiful images of our newborn daughter, which I can’t wait to display on our walls along with the images she took of our son a few years back. I love black and white images and see her photos as art and a great way of displaying something on your walls that has real personal meaning. Elle herself is super calm and patient, which makes her a soothing person to be around – and she’s brilliant with babies and children.”

Frieda & Andy – Canary Wharf

“ Elle is the warmest friendliest person you could imagine, and doing the photoshoot in our own home it felt like having an old family friend over! She’s 100% professional and the results…well we’re more than pleased, we now have memories of those first precious moments with our little one that are truly worth sharing and keeping for life! Great experience, we both can’t recommend Elle highly enough! Thank you so much Elle, keep up your beautiful work that so clearly is your passion xx.”

Catriona & Justin Scott – Hither Green

” We recently had our third session with Elle. This time it was to capture the early days as a family of four, following the arrival of our son. Elle took such special photos of our daughter at different stages and we were very excited to be able to have her back. The session was very enjoyable and Elle is exceptional with children, as well as adults! The photos are fantastic – choosing is the hard part. Thank you, again, Elle!”

Magdelana Laas – Hampstead 

” We will treasure the tender moments with our newborn son, Quinn, which Elle captured forever.  Elle came to our home, which is great for rather tired and overwhelmed new parents.  Elle was kind and warm and made all of us feel completely at ease.  She gave us more than enough time, we never felt rushed and I was able to nurse and comfort Quinn all throughout the session.  Elle was clearly confident working with babies and was patient with our little one who refused to go to sleep for his newborn session; Elle quickly adapted the photoshoot to his needs.  I will highly recommend Elle as your newborn and family photographer as she’ll make you all feel at ease and the results are intimate and loving moments captured beautifully in an elegant black and white style.”

Sinead, Guy and Meryl – Islington N1

” Elle is a total sweetheart and captured our 2 week old perfectly as a sleeping beautiful baby. Her patience and nature is exactly what we needed to get Meryl and ourselves into the relaxed mood that the shoot required. As a new mum she was a tonic and I can’t recommend her enough. I’m so delighted we took the time to do this as the photos are priceless and make me smile everyday.”

Elizabeth Gardner – Highbury & Islington

” I have used Elle for a maternity shoot, my first born’s newborn pics, an NCT shoot and now my 2nd born, very happy every time. Her patience is incredible and about 10 minutes after I would have given up she produces the perfect shot, including one of a tired and teething 2 year old with a big smile! Genius!”

Thea & Eirik Olsen – Highbury & Islington

” Elle is an amazing photographer! Not only has she produced the most stunning photos of our boys and the family but she is a pleasure to have around, making everyone feel at ease. She has the magic touch with newborns and both our boys absolutely loved her. Her service is fantastic and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get photos they will treasure forever. Thank you Elle! xxx”

Natasha – Hither Green

” Elle took stunning, artistic photos of our two children (almost 3 and 8 months) and is clearly a very talented photographer with a distinctive style but she is also great at working with children and babies, putting them at ease, and making the whole experience fun for them. Our son (who can be a real handful) and our daughter (who was going through a phase of being scared of strangers) both thought she was a wonderful and had a whale of a time. Thoroughly recommended.”

Dunja – Canary Wharf

“ We thoroughly enjoyed our maternity photo session with Elle. Her professional attitude as well as her warmth made our experience really special. Truly photographs to treasure and appreciate for the rest of our life and share with our daughter one day.”

Pascal & Christina Kreukniet – West London

” We have had an amazing experience with Elle who did 2 wonderful photo shoots with us, where she brings in a whole photo studio and even the smallest room can be  turned into one. Elle is very good in relaxing the mum, dad and baby and makes you feel like a professional model. The result of the pictures is stunning. We are really happy that we did the photo shoots and if you are thinking of doing one (or two) there is really only one option: Elle!”

Anna & Duncan Stafford – Clapham

” My husband and myself booked Elle to do my pregnancy/bump photos and we were so pleased with the results that we also booked in for our new born photo shoot. Elle was fantastic and made us feel relaxed throughout the whole shoot. She was absolutely brilliant at settling the baby and we didn’t feel at all rushed.”

We received the photos very quickly and were amazed at the results. Far better than we could have ever hoped for. The pictures are beautiful and timeless. We cant thank Elle enough. We will be back for round 3 when she reaches her 1st birthday.”

Marissa & Simon – Greenwich SE10

” Elle visited us and shot our daughter at one month old in September last year, and we are absolutely delighted with the results which made great gifts for the family. Elle was something of a baby-whisperer; our daughter was very relaxed and we got a number of awake and asleep shots which we will treasure for a long time! Definitely recommend.”

Maddy Moore – Islington

” At 34 weeks pregnant and on one of the hottest days of the year I really wasn’t feeling my best so when I saw the amazing photographs that Elle had taken I was completely thrilled. The session was so relaxed and easy I couldn’t believe the transformation Elle had captured in the photographs. I really enjoyed the whole experience and having these special photographs as a record of my pregnancy will be something we’ll always treasure, thank you Elle!”

Candice & Chales Roundell – Hammersmith

” Thank you so so much for the most beautiful and amazing photos and albums – they will constitute the most amazing memories and will be cherished for a lifetime! We are so grateful!”

Sophy and Tavona – MaidaVale

” Elle came and took pics of our daughter when she was 1 month old. It was a lovely afternoon, and Elle really made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable- she really understands what it is like to have a newborn and takes all steps to make it an enjoyable rather than stressful experience! She took some extra shots with granny who was visiting without any trouble, and the pictures themselves were lovely. Would highly recommend as a lovely way to get newborn shots.”

Hannah & Simon Martin – Greenwich

” Elle came highly recommended to us by a friend so we couldn’t wait to book our Pregnancy and Newborn photo shoot. The pregnancy photo shoot was a lot of fun and Elle was so lovely that she really put us at ease. My husband and I found ourselves chatting away to Elle like she was an old friend. This resulted in beautiful, relaxed photos that we will treasure forever. 

Elle came for our newborn photo shoot when our son Bear was a week old. It was so lovely catching up with Elle and she worked her magic and managed to settle our windy little man and took some stunning pictures. As well as taking photos, Elle gave us some fantastic advice and really encouraged us-a service above and beyond our expectations. Definitely a five star service!”

Ashley & Zac Lee – Southbank, London

” We were delighted with Elle’s service, both with her visits to our home and with the quality of her photos. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed, and it was fun watching our home converted into a miniature photo studio. Her photos recorded very special moments in our lives, and we can’t imagine how she could have done it better. Thank you Elle!”

Crystal Burrows – Brockley SE4

” Five star service. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Elle. Professional, warm, accommodating. From start to finish, the entire experience has been outstanding. Elle was fantastic with our energetic 2 year old and bouncy 9 month old. Elle was super patient with the girls when they wouldn’t sit still. The shoot was very relaxed and we didn’t feel rushed in the slightest. From the moment we met, she felt like an old friend or member of the family. Pictures are so amazing, they have really captured our little ones personalities. They wIll truly be treasured. We will definitely be working with Elle again (and again and again), to ensure we capture all those precious moments throughout the years…. Thank You So Much Elle.”

Marie Kirkwood – Putney

” Elle photographed our daughter Olivia when she was three weeks old. I found Elle on the Internet and from our first phone conversation I knew she was the perfect person to take these special photographs. Elle was completely patient and a calming influence on Olivia during the session, as we had to stop several times to feed! The afternoon that Elle spent in our home was a wonderful experience and great fun. The photographs she took were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what I’d hoped for. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elle to anyone, and certainly hope to use her again as my baby grows.”

Stephanie & Nacho Mills Gimenez – Forest Hill

” We had a lovely photo session courtesy of Elle with our two-month old baby boy. Elle’s pop-up studio was ideal for a young baby (no travel required!) and like others we loved the idea of the classic black and white photographs. We also loved some of our photographs so much that we asked Elle to produce a large multi-aperture photo frame for us. We are thrilled to bits with it. Thank you Elle!”

Sarah Courtney – Dulwich SE23

” I loved our photography sessions with Elle she made us all  feel very comfortable and relaxed so hence we achieved some gorgeous photos!! It is fantastic that studio quality shots can be acheived from the comfort of your own home. A wonderful experience and something I recommend all mums to be and new parents to be to invest in!!”

Siri & Aslak Handleand – Battersea, London

“ We had two photoshoots with Elle, maternity and newborn session,and we are very satisfied with the result. Elle creates a relaxing atmosphere, is very patient and is 100 percent dedicated on taking the best photos. The result was amazing and we are so glad that we used Elle to capture these special moments. We highly recommend her.”

” We found Elle randomly after my wife spent some time searching for photographers online in the Herne Hill area. We had just had a new baby boy and wanted some black and white shots of him and the three of us together to celebrate the new arrival.

Elle didn’t disappoint and looking back, it was a stroke of luck we chose her. Elle herself is really relaxed and friendly and makes the whole experience fun and comfortable. I guess having a little nipper of her own helps as you need a certain level of patience and understanding when trying to photograph a new born! 

The end result is amazing. We are delighted with our photos and now have some amazing momentos to keep with us for ever. So thanks again Elle!”

Kristie Prada – Greenwich, London

” We had a lovely afternoon with Elle, she put us all at ease and we have some beautiful pictures to show for it. She creates such a relaxed atmosphere and somehow captures you all at your best even your wriggling little one! We will definitely use her again.” 

Julia Beatrice Harrison – Hoxton, London

” There was no doubt in our mind after searching on Google for a newborn photographer for our little Emma that Elle was the right one for us! We truly had an amazing experience with her and what stands out is that even after several attempts to get our baby to sleep for the sleeping photos with no luck, Elle, with her ease and knowledge managed to put her to sleep, no problem at all! Overall a fantastic and professional experience and I can’t recommend Elle enough for her timeless and beautiful portraits!”

Cathy and Rob Bell – London Bridge SE1

“Elle is an amazing photographer. Not only is she a lovely person who helps make you feel relaxed while taking photos (something my husband and I aren’t very comfortable with), her work is amazing, as you will see from her gallery. I loved the fact that Elle came to our house and never rushed anything. A perfect way to capture your pregnancy and newborn moments.”

Krysia Chomka Smith – Richmond, London

“Elle not only take beautiful photos, she makes you and your baby feel very relaxed. She has such patience to get the best shots. I highly recommend Elle if you are looking for pregnancy/newborn photos – we are thrilled with ours.”

Anna Guthrie – Clapham, London

“Elle was fantastic, a complete pleasure to have in our home and put everyone at ease. The photos she has produced are worth every penny and simply beautiful. Thank you so so much! x”

Victoria Lloyd – Highbury & Islington, London

“The baby photo session with Elle was fun and relaxing. Elle brings the studio to your home so there is minimum fuss and everyone is at their most relaxed and happy. Elle fits in with whatever situation she finds so it is a delight to ‘work’ with her. The resulting photos are wonderful and I will treasure them.”

Noushin – Maida Vale

“For my baby shower I received the best gift ever, pregnancy and newborn session with Elle. Elle is very sweet, sympathetic and professional! My pregnancy session was great fun and I was really comfortable and relaxed, same thing for the newborn session and I did also admire Elle’s patience when my son would not cooperate and it took 3 hours for him to fall asleep. Can’t wait for little one to get older for his toddler portrait with Elle and hopefully he will behave better this time! Thank you so much Elle for your excellent work!”

Joanna Sidor – Ravenscourt Park, London

“When I was looking for a photographer for the family session, Elle’s website stood out for me instantly. Her simple, classical yet contemporary approach was exactly what I was looking for.  I made an appointment in no time. The session was lovely, as Elle style of work is relaxed and flexible. Prints are of exquisite quality too and they will be cherished for the years to come. Highly recommended!”

 Juliet Milward – Balham, London

“Our photo shoot with Elle was really relaxed, easy and fun – amazingly so since there were six of us to capture, and various moods to contend with! The photos are so natural and just what we hoped for, and beautifully printed too. We hope to use Elle again as the children grow up.”

 Heidy Ivy – Wandsworth, London

“Elle was absolutely wonderful! I was initially hesitant to book a pregnancy shoot as both my husband and I are extremely camera shy. Elle was able to easily put us at ease and we were actually able to enjoy the experience. We are thrilled with the pictures and couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us capture such a special time in our lives.”

Jen and Rodney Ellis – West London W1

“We booked our photo shoot with Elle as soon as little Macy was born as we loved her simple and timeless black and white portraits. I had seen her work before and was keen to get her to photograph our new addition! She was very easy to work with and relaxed us in to the shoot, gave plenty of time and was really patient with our 2 week old daughter. She really captured Macy’s little personality, the pictures look amazing and I can not wait to book the next shoot for 3 or 4 months time! I wish I had plucked up the courage to do the pregnancy shoot now but was too shy, I will have to wait until next time now! I would recommend Elle to anyone looking for pregnancy or baby portraits! Her lovely personality and love of babies really helps capture a magic moment!”

Holly Brown – Crofton Park, London

“When we saw the results of our pregnancy photo shoot (as featured on BBC Radio 4), we had no hesitation in booking Elle to do a newborn shoot. I knew Elle would make it an unhurried, stress free event which was vital as Anna was only a few days old. We had lots of breaks for cups of tea, feeds & cuddles with Anna. Elle’s photos beautifully capture a very special moment in our lives.”

Lee & Jane Carnihan – Streatham Hill, London

“We thought the whole experience was enjoyable from start to finish. Elle is very easy going and knows exactly what to do with baby to get the best out of them and the best shot.”

Claire & Dan White – East Dulwich, London

“We’d strongly recommend Elle.  Her relaxed, cheery presence brought the best out of us and our new baby girl.  The photos are beautiful, an enduring memory of this fleeting phase.  Thanks Elle!”

Claire Goodman – Lee, London

” I’m so glad we booked Elle for a pregnancy and newborn shoot. I really wanted to capture this transition from having just Abi to now having both Abi and Sam. Elle was so brilliant and patient at helping us get just the right shots. We’ve ended up with some really beautiful photos that we will treasure.”

Michelle & Jason McDowell – Clapham, London

“Super, relaxing experience and the photos capture the magic of our little baby Joe. Highly recommended!”

Rachel Kingston – West Norwood, London

“We had a fantastic photo shoot with Elle when Sam was 10 weeks old. It was so easy with Elle coming to us and setting up a whole studio in our tiny living room. The pictures look great and it’s wonderful to have these shots of Sam which already – less than 2 months later – remind me how much he is changing every day.”

Andrea Lockerbie – Streatham, London

“I got in touch with Elle as I wanted to have some photos I could look back at that captured my first pregnancy and my newborn when he arrived. Elle’s black and white photos have a real timeless and quite arty feel to them. She is very relaxed, so it is easy to feel comfortable around her and as a result she manages to get beautiful, natural looking shots. We are really pleased with the results and can’t wait to share them with family and friends.”

Deborah Artieri – Highbury & Islington, London

“Elle did a great job catching special moments with my two little ones (toddler + newborn baby). I was impressed to see Elle managing to take photos of my two and an half year old daughter….it was not an easy task!”

Esther Nicoli – Brockley, London

“Our photography session with Elle was really great, Seth felt relaxed as it was in our own home and she could use familiar props to make him smile and capture the winning shot.Elle is patient and very personable and all of the images she took were first class, it was hard to decide which photos to purchase. We will definitely be using Elle again and will recommend her to friends.”

Michelle O’Connor – Surrey Quays, London

“Elle’s calm and professional manner put us and baby Arabella at ease immediately and we all really enjoyed the photo shoot. As we were in our own home, we were able to relax and Elle worked around our baby’s schedule to get her at her best. I am delighted with the picture of me nursing and I’m so glad that Elle was able to capture such an intimate moment between mother and baby. We are really happy with the quality of the prints and have purchased copies to give to Arabella’s grandparents as Christmas gifts.”

Alison Samuel – Brockley, London

‘I was a bit worried about doing a pregnancy and newborn photoshoot – mainly because I was fairly sure my toddler wouldn’t want to cooperate, and throwing a baby into that mix and getting nice pictures out of it seemed unlikely, but we gave it a go.  Elle was really lovely and flexible with us and made the whole thing very achievable.  She set everything up in our home, was very calm, and worked around our toddler’s needs and then our baby’s, and got some really lovely shots which she shared with us the following day online.  The final pictures are really beautiful and have captured such a precious time in the most gorgeous way. We’re SO glad we did it.”

Elizabeth Hayes – Highbury & Islington, London

“Completely delighted with how professional Elle was for my pregnancy shoot – was a very last minute decision (@36 weeks) and it was so nice not to have to leave my own home. She told me what to prepare in advance clothes wise which was really helpful. I also hate having my photo taken – for me this was all about my bump, however I’m so pleased with the results I could get used to it! Thank-you for making me look (and feel) great, not an easy task in the latter stages of pregnancy.”

Vanetia Seyssel- Swiss Cottage, London

“Thank you VERY much we love our photo’s! Looking forward to seeing you again in a few months to capture the next stage.”

Suzi & Miranda – Brockley, South East London

“Elle, you were so lovely to have over to photograph Miranda. The shoot was really professional but you are so patient and used to being with babies and children that we were able to get lots of great shots by trying different ideas and poses to suit her and keep her amused. We were really pleased with the photographs and found it really difficult to choose those for our DVD from so many good ones. Highly recommended as a super and lasting reminder of a special day or event, in this case Miranda’s first birthday.”

Sophie Morgan – South Kensington, London

“Honestly, I was a nervous about our family portrait session with Elle. I had attempted a newborn shoot with our son a few months previously and came away empty handed. Elle’s approach is relaxed yet professional and having the session in our own home kept everything low key. The end result was spectacular, I loved the shots that Elle captured and was so spoilt for choice I had to order a DVD full of them. I would certainly recommend Elle to friends and would look to book her again as our son gets older.”

John & Louise Roycroft – Hither Green, London

“Thank you Elle for our beautiful photographs our only issue is trying to narrow down a selection – we love them all! Inviting someone into your home at such a wonderful, yet personal time is a big decision and this is why our experience with you was so wonderful.  You made us feel so comfortable it felt like you were one of the family, the fact that we felt so relaxed meant that Stanley was too, this in turn meant the photos were absolutely fantastic.  We wish you all the best and we are confident that your gentle and unassuming approach combined with excellent technical skills is a recipe for success and happy families everywhere.”

Beth – Loampit Hill, London

“Elle is very friendly and the fact that she comes to your own home at a time that suits you makes the whole experience easy and relaxed which is just what you need with a bump and kids!”

Lucy Large – Brockley, London

“Elle made us feel so relaxed on the photo shoot and we were thrilled with the results. She has real creative flare and a wonderful way with babies that captures them at their best.”

Nancy Ellis – East Dulwich, London

“Elle made the whole experience completely hassle free. We love our prints which arrived beautifully framed.”

Alice Morgan – Clapham, London

“Elle has a wonderful way of making you feel totally at ease in front of the camera, making the session a fun, relaxing and totally hassle-free experience for me and my baby, who squealed with delight throughout! The photographs capture the spirit and personality of my son brilliantly – I couldn’t be happier with the result. The only tricky thing is choosing a favourite for the mantelpiece as we love them all so much! I would whole-heartedly recommend Elle to friends, family and anyone looking for a photographer to take beautiful portraits in the comfort of your own home.”

Emily Sumners – Brockley, London

“What a fantastic shoot. Elle really knows how to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere, and bring the best out in her subjects. I was absolutely delighted with the photos – Elle is truly a talented photographer!”

Roxy Kennedy – East Dulwich, London

“Having Elle do a shoot at 39 weeks pregnant was great, she made me feel very comfortable and coped very well with a curious 2.5 year old too. it was a very relaxed experience and made us both feel very much at ease. The end product was great too and really happy i captured the last moments of pregnancy in this way. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering doing the same”

Ellen Baldwin – Brockley, London

“Elle has a natural way of making anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photo shoot was relaxed, fun and intimate, drawing in the whole family. Elle is really talented and we are thrilled with the pregnancy portraits she took. We would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to capture this amazing moment in life!”

Liz Wilson – Brockley, London

“We are absolutely delighted with the photos that Elle took of our children. She made the whole process so easy by coming to our house at a time that was convenient for us, and managing to produce lots of natural and creative shots despite some very energetic and fast-moving models. We will definitely approach Elle again to take more photos as the children grow and change.”

Louise Hamlin – Brockley, London

“Elle is a true professional, she made us all feel incredibly relaxed and we are utterly thrilled with the results, the only problem is choosing which photos we want as they are all excellent! It is something I would whole heartedly recommend every family to do, being captured at this very special time in a family’s life as it passes so quickly, it is truly something you can treasure and admire for years and generations to come!”

Danielle Coombe – Honor Oak, London

“We are thrilled with the pictures Elle took of our newborn baby girl. Just wonderful, we can’t stop looking at them!”

Breeda McManus – Brockley, London

“Elle, thank you so much, these are just amazing, the group shot is just fantastic, it really captures the little ones to a tee, so cute!”
