NEWBORN & MATERNITY

Newborn & Maternity Photographer in London

01.

Welcome, let me tell you more

I absolutely love the special energy and excitement that come from a pregnancy and expecting a baby. Holding the baby up for the first time is the strongest feeling we will ever experience.

Finding the right newborn photographer for you can be tricky. I want to make it really easy for you to feel you are in the right place.

Babies are delicate and so special. Those first weeks don’t last long and it all goes in a haste.
I take the most care of the baby and parents during the session and my approach is very gentle.

I don’t use a lot of props or forced set-ups. Think of me as a natural newborn and maternity photographer focusing on what is most special about the baby and the bond that is being created with mum and dad.

Maternity photography is included as a complimentary gift for newborn bookings.

placed him gently

Laura was clearly experience in handling babies and managed to calm my baby down and placed him gently into various appropriate poses. The studio was warm, homely and welcoming. I’d be recommending the grandparents here for a shoot later as a gift.
