Surrey & London Natural Baby Photography
Your Baby's First Year Is Flying By...
Those early days with your newborn pass in a flash. Before you know it they’re smiling, melting your heart with their gorgeous giggles, rolling, sitting and crawling. How did your baby get so big? And why does it feel so bittersweet? You’re so proud to see them grow, but part of you wants to press the pause button and keep them this little for longer.
Imagine having a set of pictures that capture all of your baby’s scrummy details. The little expressions that make up their personality. Those big wide-eyed grins. Their gorgeous, squidgy wrists and thighs.
My baby milestone sessions do just that for you. Freezing a moment in time with natural, timeless pictures. So you can remember just how little your baby really was.
Natural, Timeless Baby Photography
I specialise in natural baby photography - no props or complicated sets. Just a simple studio set up where the focus is purely on your baby.
I work with parents just like you, who want to have some simple, natural photographs of your baby, and hate the thought of cheesy outfits or unnatural props.
My studio is on the border of South West London and Surrey, close to Hampton Court Palace. It’s a short walk from Hampton Court station, and there’s plenty of free on-street parking if you'd prefer to drive.
Your baby's milestone session can take place at any time between ages 3 and 13 months. Each session allows plenty of time to take family and sibling portraits if you would like to include these too.

What Happens When You Book A Baby Milestone Session?
Before Your Baby's Photo Shoot
Before your shoot we’ll have a chat on the phone. This gives you time to ask any questions you have, and tell me about your baby so that I can tailor the shoot to you.
I’ll also give you lots of practical tips to help you prepare - from what to bring to what to wear.
At Your Baby Photo Shoot
On the day of your session we'll spend around an hour together, but I won’t spend all of this time taking photographs. Most babies will need a break during the shoot for a feed, nappy change or a cuddle with you. I'll follow your baby’s lead and take the time they need for us to capture a variety of photographs.
During the shoot you’re my guest, and with a selection of organic teas and coffee, snacks, baby change and feeding pillows, and organic toiletries on hand I’ll make sure you have a relaxed, comfortable experience.
At the end of the session there's also time for family portraits. This includes photographs of each parent with your baby, sibling photographs if you have older children, and photographs of the whole family.
After The Photo Shoot
After the shoot we’ll arrange a time for you to come back to the studio and see your beautiful new photographs. This is usually around a week after your session.
I’m confident that you will love the photographs after your session, but if this is not the case I will refund your session fee without question.
At your viewing, you'll have time and space to look through your photographs and choose which ones you would like to order. I’ll be on hand to help with your selection if you would like me to, but I promise absolutely no hard sell...that’s just not my style!
Once you’ve placed your order, I’ll deliver digital images to you within 48 hours of payment, and printed items within 4 weeks.

How to book your baby milestone session
The first step is to find a suitable date and time for your session. I’m usually booked up 4-6 weeks in advance, so it’s a good idea to contact me a couple of months before you would like to have the shoot.
Within 24 hours I’ll send you a link to my calendar where you can choose your session date and time, and pay your session fee.
Once your booking is confirmed I’ll send you some information to help you prepare for the shoot, and arrange a time for us to chat about your session on the phone.
