Newborn

Newborn photography in London.

The opportunity to photograph a newborn is truly a privilege. It is an honour to be able to capture the first precious moments. From the joy on the faces of the new parents to the little fingers and toes of the newborn.

I am a very experienced newborn photographer with a natural style. I will work with you & your baby to create a safe and calm environment for your session at home.

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.”

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.”

When should I book

As soon as possible after your 20 week scan. Once you have confirmed your booking a note of your due date will be taken and a time period reserved.  Arrangements for your session will be made as soon as your baby arrives.

When is the best time to photograph a newborn

Newborn sessions ideally take place within the first three weeks after the birth. In these early days your baby is still very sleepy. They still have their newborn look and haven’t quite uncurled. This helps to capture those beautiful sleepy, curled up poses.

What should my baby wear

I have a lovely selection of soft handmade hats, headbands, shorts, blankets and newborn pods perfect for your little one to curl up in. I will also happily incorporate any outfits and specially made blankets / items you would like in your pictures.

Where will my session take place and how long will it last

So that you can get the most out of your session and also continue to rest following the birth of your little one, I will come to your home. I will work with you to make your newborn photography experience relaxed, intimate and enjoyable.

Your newborn session will last between 3 – 4 hours to allow plenty of time soothe and feed your baby and capture beautiful portraits to treasure.

I only book one newborn session per day. Your photography session will never be rushed.
