Hello and welcome to Laura Shimili Mears Photography.

My work focuses on maternity, newborn and family portraits, plus professional headshots.

Driving my photography is a passion to hold on to the precious, fleeting moments in our lives. I love getting to know the people I’m photographing so I can understand you and work out how best to achieve what you want from the shoot – whether that’s a gently snoozing newborn shot or a rowdy, natural family one.

Please take a look at my gallery to get an idea of what I could create and capture for you, and do get in touch if you’d like to discuss anything.

I mainly work from my home studio in Tooting Bec but can travel up to 25 miles.

My Gallery

I found Laura through mum’s group on Facebook. I am highly appreciative of prompt response from Laura for my bump photoshoot query as I was some days away from giving birth. She put fair amount of time and effort which shows her passion for what she does. We love the final edited images. I have gone for the whole package as suggested by Laura. I highly recommend her.

I meet Laura through fcb and I had some emergency photos to get done, she was very reliable, friendly, flexible and professional. Even though was raining and I need it some photos taken on park she was amazing to go extra miles to make my vision happen. Thank you Laura for amazing photos and for your effort you put in.

I had the pleasure of working with Laura a few weeks back and apart from the beautiful photographs she took of me I was very impressed with her flexibility, kindness and hospitality. A true professional of her field. Many thanks Laura! I hope to be working with you very soon.


We are delighted with our photos from Laura! There are a few special ones which will create happy memories forever! Laura was very passionate about getting the perfect photo and made the whole family feel relaxed so the photo shoot was an enjoyable experience for all! I fully recommend using Laura to capture those unique family moments! Thank you Laura! The McCarthys.
