Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I’m Gabriela, a professional photographer, specialising in maternity, newborn, and portrait photography. I cover most of North, Central and West London like Chiswick, Hammersmith, Notting Hill, Fulham, Kensington, Chelsea, Battersea, Putney, Richmond, and Hampstead. I like to travel around London to discover new locations for the next photo sessions.
I believe that a beautiful portrait should portray so much more than just a smile. I want you to be able to feel my images. My approach to photography is to create images filled with love and light which stand the test of time, something more than a trendy glossy for a passing season. I wanted to capture your stories, moments, and feelings. My photography style is classic, simple, romantic, and elegant. I aim to create soft and timeless images using natural tones and textures that best compliment you. I would love to get to know you and see how I can tell your story. You can count on my help at every stage of our journey together.
The photography I offer is geared towards quality, not quantity. I approach every picture individually so everyone can returns to these pictures after many years with the same joy and emotions. I’ve created my personal style of photography thanks to a mixture of natural and professional lighting, and a pinch of post-production techniques. As a former content manager, my photography is also all about telling beautiful stories. I use to photograph people in my signature style that combines a photojournalistic approach, lifestyle aesthetics with a touch of glamour style.
My photography is dedicated to women. I would love to capture your unique personality, jurney as a mum, or your growing family. My aim is to empower women through my portraits and make them feel beautiful, strong, or delicate, and romantic. There are so many shades I can uncover for you. I provide my clients with high-quality products, but also a premium experience.
I look forward to hearing from you!
I believe in the beauty of simple things and little details which make ordinary things unique. I specialise in lifestyle photography and I capture real-life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner but I can include some styled and posed images. I like to photograph in my client’s homes or outdoors in one of the lovely parks we have around London. No posing necessary. No forced smiles. Please, be as natural as possible. I enjoy those unexpected and astonishing moments when no one thinks about the photo session. I prefer to catch moments. However, if necessary I’m happy to help you and pose in the most flattering way.
If you and your family love being outdoors let’s go out and have an adventure together. Some of my favorite spots for photo shoots are The Hill Garden and Pergola, Golders Hill Park, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Richmond Park, and Gunnersbury Park.
Your maternity, newborn or family session is all about creating genuine stories about people who love each other. Please, check my blog as well as galleries to see how emotive each picture can be. I hope I inspire you to have photos taken of you and your family.
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. Do you consider having a maternity session? The best time for a pregnancy photo shoot is between 30-35 weeks of your pregnancy so your belly will have a nice round shape.
Your maternity session can take place in your home or outdoor – wherever you feel comfortable and relaxed. We can involve your family (including pets) if you like. Before the session, I will share with you lots of practical tips to help you prepare, from what to bring to what to wear. We will discuss the session plan and the style you want to be portraited in – romantic, feminine, elegant, funny, or relaxed. Another key to success is a consistent wardrobe. You can always use my maternity dresses and accessories.
During your pregnancy photo shoot, I will guide you on how to pose in the most flattering way and make sure the end results meet your expectations. You don’t need to look all the time at the camera, I will ask you to interact with your partner and family as my photography is about capturing authentic emotions. I’ve noticed that the presence of a partner or family always empowers my clients. They literally blossom during the session.
However, the pregnancy time is not always like in beautiful pictures. Some of us suffer from common pregnancy discomforts. If you one of them and consider having a maternity session, please let me know. I’m happy to help you enjoy your photo session experience and remind it as a pleasant experience. Also, don’t hesitate to ask your loved ones about the help. I believe together we can create a bit of magic.
I love to photography outdoors! My favorite spots in West London are Richmond Park with Isabella Plantation and deers, iconic Kew Gardens, Holland Park, romantic Gunnersbury Park, and Chiswick Park. I’m still exploring those areas. How about a walk through bohemian Notting Hill? Check a dedicated page for the Maternity Photography in West London for more details.
I often recommend Hampstead Heath as a session location. My favorite parks in North London are one in a kind The Hill Garden and Pergola (the most requested spot by my clients, and yes, I love Pergola too), Kenwood House, and Golders Hill Park. Check a dedicated page for the Maternity Photography in North London.
I truly adore the central part of London. My favorite locations in Central London are Buckingham Palace, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Westminster, London Bridge, Millenium Bridge, St. Katherine’s Docks, South Bank, Covent Garden, and almost secret Neal’s Yard. If you will feel enough comfortable we can have a long walk through Central London to capture you in the most iconic spots.
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 (10th is the best). This is when babies are the sleepiest and easiest to photograph. As soon as you will know your due date we can make a provisional booking for 1oth 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 them with loved ones. I want to capture those joyful feelings and document them for you to keep them forever. Newborns are mostly posed naked and look absolutely adorable this way. I can offer you a variety of fabrics, baskets, little outfits, hats, and other accessories to complement the look. However, I believe the less is more and I like to keep things simple. Please, check the Newborn Gallery to see what you can expect.
The newborn session will take place in your home which is a safe and comfortable environment for you and your baby. Usually, I like to photography in the bedroom, baby’s room, or living room. During the session, I will take a lot of portraits of your little one as well as family shots with all of you in.
A newborn photo session is very much baby-led. I always make sure that the little one is settled, comfortable, and safe during the session. Safety is always the most important. Please, bear in mind that usually, a newborn session may last up to 4 hours, though it may be completed in much less time. I always book only one session per day to keep things relaxed.
Please, spend some time on my website so you can make an informed decision when choosing the right newborn photographer for your family.
I have been grateful to see families grow, from those curly tiny creations to become beautiful people. I love to photograph families being playful, relaxed, and carefree: tree climbing, puddle jumping, picnics, and tickling. I believe being outside always brings out the magic and wonder of childhood.
However, our memories are made as well within the walls of our homes during a book reading, tickle fights, or cozy mornings in beds. The place you can all relax and be yourselves is the best setting to tell your family’s story.
I use to focus on capturing natural and emotional photographs that tell a unique story of your family. Every person from the tiniest baby to adult is beautiful inside out and it is my passion to capture this beauty in authentic photographs. Similarly, I believe that light that can transform one scene into something completely different and magical. I love to play with natural light. However, if necessary I can use my professional lighting kit.
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.
Gabi is a wonderful photographer, she is very friendly, great to work with, and made me feel at ease whilst we were having the photo session. Definitely recommend working with her. Thank you!
Absolutely amazing! Very professional and friendly! She has great ideas and is always listening to what the person is expecting from the photoshoot. I would highly recommend anyone who wants a maternity or newborn photoshoot session! I had one myself and I absolutely love it!!!
Gabriela is the best photographer ever! Thank you very much for such a great experience: maternity and newborn photo session
