Baby Photography in Kensington and Chelsea, London SW7

Fine art baby photography in Kensington and Chelsea

I often meet families for the first time when I photograph their babies and I love visiting Kensington and Chelsea in West London for these baby photo shoots.  The majority of my clients return for more pictures year on year and it’s such a pleasure to watch the children grow up.

Many families choose to have a number of baby photo shoots during their child’s first year, to document the huge changes between a tiny newborn, a smiling 4-month-old, the excitement of sitting up at around 8 months and then, sometimes, on the move for their first birthday, keen to explore the work around them.

Whether you want to have just one baby photography session, or a number spread across the year then I would be thrilled to visit you in Kensington and Chelsea to photograph your family.

Working around you and your baby

Baby photo shoots take place at your Kensington or Chelsea home, where you have everything to hand and where your baby feels completely comfortable and relaxed.  I arrive nice and early as I know babies are early risers and we want to take pictures when they are at their best and brightest.

Often starting at 8am we have a lovely slot post breakfast and before the mid-morning nap to take lots of beautiful pictures.  Then, when your little one begins to get tired we take a break ensuring that they keep to any routine that they have and don’t get overtired.  We can have a coffee knowing that when they wake up they will be on top form for the second part of our session.


Only one session in a day so we have plenty of time

If the weather is good then often I’ll do half a baby photo shoot indoors and half outside – we can venture to one of the beautiful parks – Kensington Gardens, Holland Park or Battersea Park are options as well as the incredible garden squares if you are lucky enough to have a key.

By doing part of the session indoors and part outside we really add to the variety of your images giving you the best of all worlds and ensuring a really stunning set of images all taken in beautiful black and white.

I only do one session a day so photo shoots are never rushed – while I expect to be finished by lunchtime if your baby decides that photo shoot day is the day they want to feed non-stop for four hours or have an extra-long nap, that’s no problem at all.  I am at your disposal and by working around your baby we ensure good moods all round and the best pictures imaginable.


Exceptional customer service from start to finish

Every part of your baby photography in Kensington and Chelsea experience is designed to be easy and efficient.  From our first communications I will be here to answer your questions – and you will also find huge amounts of information here on the website including a full price list so you know how everything works.

After your session one of my colleagues visits you at a convenient time to show you your pictures in the comfort of your own home.  Many clients choose evening viewings when your baby has gone to bed, and you can relax and enjoy looking at your pictures.

I prepare designs for you and suggestions based on your pictures and the conversations we have during our photo shoot.  Collections will be suggested to fit the spaces in your home and you can go with those or select your own ideas.  We are there to help and facilitate but there is never a hard sell, my business is based around repeat customers so happy clients choosing exactly the right things for them are my priority.

You will be shown examples of our beautiful printed products – fine art prints, stunning handmade frames and modern display options such as acrylics and aluminiums as well as the incredible albums which are our most popular product.

Six to eight weeks after your baby photography in Kensington and Chelsea session you can be enjoying your pictures up on the wall or sit down to look through your album.  The days of a disk languishing in the drawer or a set of contact sheets in the ‘to-do’ pile are long gone.  Ours is the complete service from start to finish so you can enjoy the beautiful pictures we have taken together.
