Newborn photographer Dulwich and East Dulwich

newborn photo shoot east dulwich

Photographing newborn babies in Dulwich and East Dulwich holds a special place in my heart, as my partner lives here so we’re often in the area with my own little girl.

We love the wide open spaces and the landscaped areas of Peckham Rye, and tearing around the adventure playground. And of course a picnic in Dulwich park in the summer is so lovely.

I love photographing newborns and children here, thinking of the memories they’ll develop of the area – such a great area to grow up in.

“Louise did an amazing job with our newborn photo session. She managed to get beautiful photographs. She was very professional and made us feel very comfortable throughout the process.” Erica

Some newborn photo sessions in Dulwich:

“Louise was very professional yet incredibly friendly, and instantly made us all feel at ease. The three sets of shots we had (from pregnancy, newborn to our little boy at 6 months old) are priceless. They’re so beautifully shot. We would not hesitate to recommend her for a photo shoot. Plus … it’s actually great fun, too!” Daniel

Thinking about your own Dulwich newborn photoshot

Just get in touch and I can send you more information about how I approach newborn photography, and also an overview of what to expect.

If possible, I recommend booking your newborn session in a couple of months ahead, as my calendar fills up quite far in advance. I can’t always accommodate last minute bookings, although I will always try my best!

Once you’ve made your booking, I’ll send you an information gathering form. This helps me to find out about your priorities, and what you’d like from your photographs. We’ll then arrange a time to discuss your session, and I’ll guide you through what to have to hand and what to wear.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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!
