The first weeks with your newborn are a crazy, magical time. A whirlwind of love, emotion, hormones and sleepless nights as you get to know your gorgeous little one.  Blink and you might miss it! 

Before you know it those early days are a distant memory, and your baby is not a tiny newborn any more.

My newborn photo shoots capture these precious first days for you with simple, timeless photographs, so that you can remember and treasure them forever. 

I’m Clare, a newborn and baby photographer based close to Hampton Court. I specialise in timeless, natural photography, and work with families from all over Greater London and Surrey.

On this page you can find out more about the different services I offer, which include newborn sessions to capture your baby’s precious first weeks and sessions for older babies.

I specialise in natural, newborn photography; no props, or unnatural poses – the focus is simply on your baby, your family and the connections between you. The result is a set of beautiful, timeless photographs that won’t go out of fashion.

My purpose built home studio is close to Hampton Court in South West London.

The studio is warm, comfortable and has everything I need to safely photograph your baby and family. During the shoot you’re my guest. With a selection of organic teas and coffee, snacks, baby change, feeding pillows, and organic toiletries on hand I’ll make sure you have a relaxed, comfortable experience. 


Many families start to think about a newborn photo shoot once their baby is a few weeks old, but often find that they’ve passed the ‘ideal window’ for a posed newborn shoot. 

My older newborn sessions mean that you don’t have to miss out. 

This session focuses on family portraits and the newborn photographs that are suitable for older babies. Capturing a beautiful set of baby and family pictures to freeze this special moment in time for you.

Portrait by London baby photographer Clare Murthy

Before you know your baby is growing up; smiling, melting your heart with their gorgeous giggles, rolling, sitting and crawling. 

My baby milestone sessions freeze these moments for you. Capturing all of your baby’s scrummy details with simple, natural photographs. So you can remember exactly how adorable they were at this stage.

Milestone sessions can take place at any age between 3 months and 13 months, and allow plenty of time for sibling and family photographs too.

"Aside from the fact the pictures we got were absolutely gorgeous, Clare was just such a pleasure to deal with. She explained everything in the run up and gave helpful advice. But it was on the day itself - when you turn up feeling frazzled, tired and not like yourself because you’ve got a 2 week old baby - Clare was so calm and kind. She went out of her way to put me at ease and was incredibly gentle, patient and lovely with my little ones. I can’t thank her enough - for the day and the beautiful pictures."

"Nothing can prepare you for how fragile and emotional you feel post birth. Clare completely understood this and made us feel very looked after with her calm and caring approach right from the start. The photos we have of us as a new family with our son at 5 days old are irreplaceable and something we will treasure forever."
Cheam, Surrey Newborn Photographer
