There's nothing quite like those first few precious weeks with your newborn; time completely stops and you're in a happy family bubble, your heart and mind filled with the touch and smell of your new baby.

I also don't underestimate how overwhelming this time can be. I'm there as a calming presence and have dealt with plenty of screaming newborns in my time (some my own) so please don't worry if your baby is colicky or unsettled. I have tricks and tips up my sleeve. My clients often tell me I'm a calming presence for them. I'm a calm presence and am experienced at making new parents feel comfortable and relaxed about the newborn shoot.

I offer natural, enchanting newborn photography in and around North London, West London, East London, South London and parts of Hertfordshire. These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home and are totally relaxed. We take as long as you and the baby need for feeds, changes and cuddles.

'Her Photos Tell a Story of Love Within a Family'

Hatel, East London

I loved the way Melissa made us feel comfortable while taking pictures of our newborn! I wanted [them] to tell a story of how we felt about our little family and that’s what she did. I loved...our natural smiles...each capture showed emotion! I can not recommend her enough, her photos tell a story of love within a family and I can’t wait to use her again'
