Newborn photographer Notting Hill

As a full-time newborn and family photographer, I’m often in the area. Having spent so much time in Notting Hill growing up here in London, it’s always a treat coming back to photograph the new generation emerging here.

My newborn sessions usually take place at home, but families do sometimes want outdoor photographs too. If that’s you, we can head out to one of the beautiful parks nearby. The gated parks work well if you have access to one, or we can also head to Holland Park or Kensington Gardens.

“Louise is an amazing photographer – she blends right in with the family scene. Her photos are fresh, natural but all denote her outstanding eye. I love them!” Erica

“Louise took some beautiful photos of our little family when our daughter was only 6 days old. She has a lovely, calming effect on babies and really put us and our little one at ease. She’s very patient, allowing for cuddles and feeds without any time pressure.” Gabriela

Thinking about your own Notting Hill newborn photographs

If you’re planning on having your own newborn photographs taken, do get in touch! I’d love to hear what you’d like from the photographs, and we can discuss which session length might suit you best. I’ll send you more information about my approach and what to expect.

Once you’ve made a booking, I’ll send you an information gathering form so you can tell me all about your priorities. We’ll then arrange a date and time that suits you, to discuss your photographs, what to have to hand for them, and how to get the most out of your session. 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!
