Newborn photography in Mortlake

“Louise takes her time, she is very professional and has a brilliant way of interacting with babies and children. She achieves fantastic pictures. Her work is of the highest quality. I have had numerous other photographers before, but I will always go back to her.” Klaudia

Photographing newborn babies in Mortlake brings back fond memories of my own childhood – I grew up in Putney, so we were often in the area. It’s such a great location for children, with the river nearby as well as Richmond Park and Barnes Common. I love coming back here to photograph the new babies making this pretty part of London their own!

With longer sessions, we have the option to outdoors to one of these locations – or we can go further afield, say to the Wetlands Centre. We can discuss locations when we chat through your session – I always recommend choosing a park that means something to you, a place where you enjoy spending time together.

Natural, relaxed newborn photoshoots

Newborn sessions are always easy and relaxed for both you and your baby – and an enjoyable, memorable event for the family. You need this to be easy to arrange, and a pleasant experience – and it will be! 

You've worked hard to create your family, and capturing this precious stage of your baby's life is a great way to stop and take it all in.

As newborns are adorable as they are, I take natural photographs - no tucking your baby into buckets! With 3-4 hour sessions, there's scope to visit your favourite park too. 

Over the course of your session, I'll quietly photograph your newborn baby as he or she sleeps, gazes up at you or snuggles up in your arms, and photograph you all as a family.

Always keeping things quiet and calm, I’ll work at your baby’s pace, allowing plenty of time for nappy changing and feeding breaks.

The love and bond between you all is so important, so of course I'll also take some relaxed family shots too.

I always look to take photographs that will not only move you now, but will also bring back memories in years to come.

Please know that all families are 100% welcome – single parent families, same sex parents, all religions and backgrounds. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and I’m honoured to photograph each and every one.

I have a simple pricing structure, with no hidden surprises.

Helping you all relax 

As a mum myself, I really understand how to keep sessions calm for babies – and enjoyable for you! My ten years' experience as a full-time family photographer means you really don't have to worry about how your baby will be on the day.  

Your portrait session is always baby led – there’s plenty of time, and no rush.

It’s all about making sure you feel comfortable and not at all self-conscious.

We’ll allow plenty of time for nappy changes, winding, changes and any little issues that might crop up.

Rest assured though that I’ll gently guide you into pretty light and spaces that will work well for portraits.

You can find out what to expect here, and we can discuss what you're looking for to see if I'll be a good fit for your family. Just get in touch

Quality prints, frames & albums

I work with specialist framers and album suppliers to create truly stunning products for you to treasure, and to pass on to the next generations. It's a great opportunity to create some family heirlooms that your children can share with their own children in years to come. 

Fine art prints really bring your photographs to life, so I include at least one print with every booking. It's so important to have your photographs out where you can see and enjoy them! 

Frames mean you get to enjoy your photographs every day. I can provide design support (free of charge) in selecting the frames that will suit your home best

Albums create a beautiful time capsule of this stage in your family's life. Looking through them together as your children grow up is a magical experience – we never tire of it!
