I would like professional newborn photographs of my baby due in January. Can anyone recommend a good BUT AFFORDABLE photographer in London (preferably South West London)?

Hello Kiki84
My daughter is currently looking to expand her portfolio, she is a portrait photographer and would like to have some lovely pregnant tummies new borne, babies and children to help kick start her freelance career.
As she is just setting herself up her rates are reasonable. You can contact her on http://lydiapevsnerphotographer.
I know she is my daughter but I think her photography is beautiful and she loves small babies and children.
Good luck with your birth.

Hello!
Please visit www.carolinamiddleton.com
I specialised in babies, bumps, family photography at the most affordable prices.
Good packages with lots of prints included under £100.

I am the photographer for the Naughty Mummies, a large group of mums in SW who get together for picnics coffee mornings and baby events. Have lots of testimonials from them.

For newborns, Maria Murray does amazing stuff.
You can check her out here:
http://www.mariamurray.co.uk/
I think she only works with babies under 10 days old so you should probably book her before your due date.

I also do photography and work with both newborns and kids.
I'm still portfolio building so prices aren't very high at the moment.
I'm still building my website, but you can see my work here on facebook page (just go under photos):

I can really recommend Lydia Pevsner.
she really took her time getting to know the children and the whole session was very relaxed.
loads and loads of beautiful photos were the result!

Hi hun, if you haven't found anyone I am starting up as a baby photographer, I live in SW London and am happy not to charge you at all as long as you're happy for your baby's portraits to be included in my portfolio.

I don't do studio shots, I do lifestyle portraits, in the baby's own home and environment, using only natural light (never flash), as in my experience you can capture many more lovely expressions this way, and it's a great way to remember how you lived when your baby was tiny.

Please contact me on nanny.sarah@live.com if you're interested. Happy to send you some portfolio pics I've done to show you.

Hi there,
They are many boys and girls with cameras bit the camera is not enough to make you a true pro.
I would recommend a photographer we used ( www.mariaphoto.net). She has a CRB, experience with children. Also she is a professionally trained photographer at LCC and has published in magazines. She is very laid back, very creative and patient. She stayed more than the time of the session established before.We strongly recommend her.
