Welcome to my photography – it’s all about you, and your stories. I’m Gabriela, a London-based professional lifestyle photographer, specialising in maternity, newborn, portrait, and wedding photography. I cover most of North and West London. However, I’m always excited to explore new locations for your photo sessions.
The photography I offer is geared towards quality, not quantity. I approach every picture individually so you can returns to it after many years with the same joy and emotions. Your images will convey love and elegance, far beyond seasoning trends.
I believe that a great portrait captures more than just a smile, it should enhance your inner beauty. My images will reflect your passion, and unique essence with classic simplicity.
I blend natural and professional lighting with a touch of post-production techniques. My photography is also all about telling stories. I combine a photojournalistic approach with lifestyle aesthetics and a touch of glamour.
My photography is dedicated to women. I enjoy capturing the unique personalities and life journeys of my clients. My aim is to empower women through my portraits, making them feel unique, beautiful, strong, and delicate. There are so many shades I can uncover for you through my lens. I not only offer my clients high-quality products but also a premium experience.
I’m eager to connect with you, to discover how I can narrate your story. Rest assured, I’ll be there to guide you at every step of our journey together. I look forward to hearing from you!
Do you believe in the beauty of simple things and the power of details to turn ordinary experiences into extraordinary memories? Lifestyle photography is the art of capturing the true essence of life, revealing the beauty of everyday moments. It celebrates authenticity, genuine emotions, connections, and stories.
I specialise in lifestyle photography, capturing your real-life events in an artistic manner, along with some styled and posed images. I prefer to photograph in my client homes or outdoors. There’s no need for posing or forced smiles. Please, be as natural as possible. I enjoy capturing those unexpected and astonishing moments when no one is aware of my camera’s presence. If necessary, I’m happy to provide guidance and pose you in the most flattering way.
If you and your family love the outdoors, let’s go on an adventure together. I cover areas such us Hampstead, Kilburn, Camden, Notting Hill, Ealing, Chiswick, Hammersmith and Kensington. Some of my favourite locations for photo sessions include The Hill Garden and Pergola, Golders Hill Park, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Richmond Park, and Gunnersbury Park. Are there any other locations that are special for you? Let’s have a chat and create a session that makes your dream come true.
Your photo session is all about capturing genuine stories of people who love each other. Please check out my blog and galleries to see how emotional each picture can be. I hope I inspire you to have your photos taken!
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. Have you considered having a maternity session? The ideal time for a pregnancy photo shoot is between 30-35 weeks of your pregnancy, ensuring your belly has a nice round shape.
Your maternity session can take place in your home or outdoors, wherever you feel most comfortable and relaxed. We can include your family and pets, if you like. Prior to the session, I’ll provide you with practical tips to help you prepare, from what to bring to what to wear. We’ll discuss the session plan and the style you’d like to be portrayed in – whether it’s romantic, feminine, elegant, or relaxed. Another key to success is a consistent wardrobe, and you can always use my maternity dresses and accessories.
During your pregnancy photo shoot, I’ll guide you on posing in the most flattering way to ensure the end results meet your expectations. You don’t need to look at the camera all the time. I’ll encourage you to interact with your partner and family, as my photography focuses on capturing authentic emotions. I’ve noticed that the presence of a partner or family often empowers my clients, they literally blossom during the session.
However, pregnancy isn’t always as glamorous as it appears in pictures. Some of us suffer from common pregnancy discomforts. If you’re one of them and are considering a maternity session, please let me know. I’m here to help you enjoy your photo session experience and make it a pleasant memory. Also, don’t hesitate to ask your loved ones for assistance.
I love outdoor photography! Some of my favourite parks in North London are truly unique. The Hill Garden and Pergola is one-of-a-kind (the most requested spot by my clients, and yes, I love Pergola too), as well as Kenwood House and Golders Hill Park. You can also check out the dedicated page for Maternity Photography in North London.
My favourite locations in West London include scenic Richmond Park with Isabella Plantation and deer, as well as The Kew Gardens, Holland Park, Gunnersbury Park, and Chiswick Park. How about a walk through the bohemian streets of Notting Hill? Check a dedicated page for the Maternity Photography in West London for more details.
In Kensington and the nearby areas, we can photograph in Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster. If you feel comfortable, we can take a long walk through the City of London to capture you in its most iconic spots, such as London Bridge, Millennium Bridge, St. Katherine’s Docks, South Bank, Covent Garden, and the almost-secret Neal’s Yard.
Remember, to check the availability of a suitable parking spot and plan your way in advance to arrive on time.
The best time to photograph newborns is between 7-21 days (the 10th day is ideal). This is when babies are sleepiest and easiest to photograph. As soon as you know your due date, we can pencil your booking for 10 days after your due date, and adjust if your baby arrives early or late.
Welcoming your new baby into the world is one of the most emotional and incredible times in your life. Parents and siblings are more than welcome to join in, as happiness multiplies by sharing these moments with loved ones. I aim to capture those joyful feelings and preserve them for you to cherish forever. Newborns are typically photographed in a natural, adorable state, often without clothing. I can provide a variety of fabrics, baskets, small outfits, hats, and other accessories to enhance the aesthetics. However, I believe that ‘less is more,’ and I prefer to keep things simple. Please check the Newborn Gallery to get an idea of what to expect.
The newborn session will take place in your home, providing a safe and comfortable environment for you and your baby. Typically, I prefer to photograph in the bedroom, baby’s room, and living room. During the session, I will capture numerous portraits of your little one as well as family shots with all of you.
A newborn photo session is very much baby-led. I always ensure that the little one is settled, comfortable, and safe during the session. Safety is of the utmost importance. Please keep in mind that typically, a newborn session may last up to 4 hours, although it may be completed in much less time. I always schedule only one session per day to maintain a relaxed atmosphere.
Hi, my name is Gabriela. I’m a newborn, maternity & portrait photographer based in West London, UK. I have over 10 years of experience as a professional photographer. I became interested in photography during my studies and since then I don’t like to be separated from my camera. This is also my biggest passion and work. From the very beginning, I like to portray people the most. In my pictures, I try to show their smile, energy, and real emotions.
I work on professional full-frame Canon body and bright lenses, so I rarely use additional lighting. If it’s necessary I have huge lighting equipment. However, my work is not just photo shoots, but also many hours of photo retouching.
