Hi, I’m a maternity photographer based in North London. The best time for a maternity session is between 30-35 weeks of your pregnancy. Your belly will have a nice round shape during this timeframe, perfect for taking photographs. Your maternity session can take place in my small home studio in East Finchley, in your place or outside in one of the lovely parks we have around North London.
I have a wide range of beautiful dresses to choose from, but you can always bring your own clothes. Your partner or husband is always welcome to join the session. The photography I offer is geared towards quality, not quantity. I approach every picture individually and I try to be as effective as possible. Please, scroll around my gallery and see how emotive each picture I take will be for you.
Newborn sessions are held from 10 am – 4:00 pm in my home North London studio. Weekend availability is not guaranteed. Home sessions can be done at the midi and maxi packages. A bright bedroom or living room will be a good place for the session.
How old are the newborns you typically photograph?
The best time to photograph newborns is between 5-10 days (10 days old is the best). This is when babies are sleepiest and easiest to photograph.
How long do newborn photography sessions last?
Your newborn session can take up to 4 hours and the reason for this is your newborn will need feeding, cuddles and cleaning throughout the session.
Do I need to prepare any props or accessories to my newborn session?
I have all the props in my studio but remember, safety always comes first so I prefer a minimal usage of them. I never photograph babies in glass bowls or in positions that could be harmful. I prefer instead blankets, knit hats, and headbands. You can prepare objects that have special meaning to you but please let me know earlier if you have any personal items you’d like to incorporate.
What clothes should I wear for our session?
A beautiful family portrait is all about the emotion. It really is not that important what you wear as long as you all match. However, I do think that more plainclothes work better than bright colours and bold patterns (white, bluish, etc. is ok).
Can my older children be included in some pictures with my newborn baby?
Yes, in Midi and Maxi packages. Having a new baby in the family is a very exciting and special time for everyone. I’ll capture that with pleasure. In Midi and Maxi packages is no charge for other family members to take part in your session.
