Newborn and Baby Photography in Greenwich

Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m Helen, a newborn, baby, and family photographer here in London.  Since I started my business in 2003 I often visit Greenwich to photograph newborns and babies, indeed I grew up in Blackheath and so Greenwich always feels a very familiar stomping ground and I love any excuse to walk through Greenwich Park and enjoy taking photographs down by the Thames when I’m on a newborn or baby photography shoot.

Photographing newborns and babies is a joy and a privilege. It’s wonderful to be invited to my client’s homes in Greenwich in South London to meet their tiny babies and capture the excitement and wonder of these first days.  With a focus on natural moments and beautiful portraits you can be certain that I will provide you with exquisite images that you and your family will love.

My newborn and baby photography is shot entirely in black and white to ensure a timeless feel and that your pictures will not date with the fads and fashions of colour processing or suffer from fading colour prints. I strongly believe that in photographing newborns and babies we are creating pictures to enjoy now but also for our children to enjoy as adults and so images that stand the test of time and will look as wonderful in forty years’ time as they do today is key.  Black and white is also a wonderful, flattering, medium for family photography creating beautiful images that draw you in.  To get a feel for the style and variety of images you can expect do take a look at my newborn portfolio or the baby photography gallery where you will see many different images from different sessions to give you a good idea of my work.

Relaxed, Fun Newborn and Baby Portrait Sessions in your Greenwich Home

My sessions take place at your home to make things relaxed for you and we work around your baby. Newborns photography sessions are entirely baby led with lots of breaks for feeds and cuddles.  With older babies we work around your babies routine ensuring that we get pictures before and after their mid-morning nap to create a wonderful and varied set of images without disrupting their schedule.  I only ever do one session a day so there is plenty of time to take pictures that record all your favourite things to do together.

You can find out more about how my newborn sessions work in my in-depth guide to newborn photography at home or the baby photography page on my website. By exploring the different pages on the site, you can get an excellent idea of what to expect and I also publish a full price list which explains how much the different options cost.

If the weather is nice then I would expect that we would head outside for part of your newborn or baby photography session. Greenwich is such a beautiful area and there are so many lovely options for outdoor pictures from Greenwich Park to Blackheath or Oxleas woods, or along the Thames Path to incorporate a river view.  Think about what you love to do as a family and we can bring that into our pictures to make them very personal to you.

Of course, if you have older children then they are a hugely important part of any newborn or baby photography session and we can easily incorporate a trip to the playground into a newborn shoot. I totally understand that the arrival of a new baby is a momentous occasion for young children and I will approach every session with understanding and a sense of humour which will keep things relaxed and fun and ensure we get the photographs you dream of.
