Newborn photography London & maternity photography London
Welcome to Ribbon & Pearl Photography Photography. My name is Katherine and I specialize in newborn photography and maternity photography in London. Up to the present time I have photographer over a thousand babies, in addition many multiplies!
Newborn photography session is scheduled in a time while your baby is still very small, ideally between 4th-14th day of life. The reason of that is they are still very curled up at that time and this is why posing seem like a very natural thing for them. Another reason we are taking pictures in such a time frame is that babies stay asleep easier, what is necessary to take this kind of photos. After that time babies loose their natural newborn curl as well as tend to wake up easily.
When to book newborn session
I can book only a limited number of sessions per month and my calendar fills fast therefore please contact me in advance to avoid dissapointemnt. I recommend to book your newborn baby photography session when you are still pregnant and ideally it is after your 22 weeks scan. Newborn photography session last about 2-4 hours and are held either in my home studio in Essex (M25 radius) or in a comfort of your home. If you choose a home visit I will bring the props as well as needed equipment from my studio to your home.
My studio prop rooms are full of blankets, float furs, backgrounds, baskets as well as various backdrops.
I have been a newborn photographer for the past 8 years. While I enjoy looking at styled photographs of newborns, like the knee to elbow pose, the beauty and simplicity captured in lifestyle photography pictures are what I love the most.
Following your session you will receive a gallery of all the images taken on the day to choose your favourite. This part is not only exciting but also a hard work! It is not easy to choose some photos over the others! :)
Maternity Photography London
Maternity photography London | Beach maternity photography
Maternity photography sessions are simply beautiful. I want to ensure that your photographs will be amazing. I personally love breathtaking maternity pictures and to achieve that I am planning the session in advance in small details. It is important to choose a maternity photographer who’s style appeal most to you.
I usually start with phone or email consultation to get to know your style better. We can keep the images simple or go for more artistic, magical pictures.
Beach maternity photography
I particularly love location maternity session. In spring 2016 I started my beach maternity photography adventure. As I am maternity photography London based photographer it does require me and the photographed person (couple, family) to travel to a location of our choice. It is totally worth it as the images are just wonderful. Please visit our blog and maternity portfolio to see some sample images. If you would like to organise a beach session for yourself please get in touch. I would love to hear some of your ideas and expectations
It’s best to plan your pregnancy session for anytime between 32nd and 38th week. It is especially relevant if you are planning outdoor session. We may need to reschedule the session due to bad weather and in this case we will still have enough time to choose another day for our maternity session.
Baby photography 1-12 months old
Baby photography for children up to 12 months. Any time is good for a baby session and there are no time frames.
Sitter photography session
The most popular and one of the sweetest are sitter photography sessions (6-7months olds). Sitter sessions are for babies that prefer to sit and watch things rather than trying their strengths at crawling. We want to take advantage of this very short time when they are excited by just being able to sit up and see everything from different perspective. We can then count on plenty of smiles! Sitter sessions are always lots of fun.
Smash cake photography session – 1st year session
Cake Smash Photo Shoots have to be the most fun photo shoot to be part of. Let’s face it all babies love to explore, this is truly a perfect way to celebrate their first birthday in style.
Smash cake photography session is perfect to clebrate your child firt birthday in style. Cake smash sessionis one of the most fun photoshoots to be part of. We can order a cake for the smash part for you or alternatively you can bring one (or bake one :) ) yourself.
Many of you ask for smash & splash sessions and it is now available to book too! Besides smash pictures we will also take many family photos as well as the child on its own.
Please book your smash cake photography session in advance if you wish to receive the pictures before the actual birthday. Unfortunately due to a nature of newborn photographers schedule I am not able to process sessions in express service.
