Photographing newborn babies in Battersea always reminds me of early days with my own daughter – living in Clapham, we used to often come over for a swim at the Latchmere, or for Monkey Music sessions. It’s only a stone’s throw for me now, as I’m currently living in Balham. A trip to Battersea park is, thank goodness, still an easy journey!

I love coming back here to photograph new additions to families – I love thinking of each newborn growing up here, getting to enjoy such a special part of London.

“The photographs are everything I hoped they would be, and more – there are some beautiful photographs. Louise captured us all extremely naturally – I will always treasure these photos of those special early days.” Nell

“I couldn’t recommend Louise more highly. She worked incredible magic. It was all very easy and relaxed. I’m so, so glad I now have this collection of perfect photos. I shall cherish them forever. An incredibly wise investment that I would recommend to anyone.” Rebecca

Having Battersea Park on the doorstep is also brilliant to give your older children a break and a run around. I love having the mix of the pretty pond as well as the landscaped areas to photograph in. There are some great hidden spots off the beaten track where can we find quiet areas for your little ones to run around in, away from the passerby. It’s also only a moment’s walk to the river, so we can incorporate the riverside too if you’d like.

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!
