About a month ago I was offered a newborn shoot with Clapham based photographer Emanuela Redaschi. (I met her at a London Mother’s event and she was keen for me to review her services.) Of course I happily accepted. When A was born we did a family shoot for Baby Surrey magazine and got some really gorgeous images, so I was honoured to be in a similar position second time around.

A professional shoot is something I 100% recommend on the arrival of a new baby. It’s the perfect excuse to get everyone together, no arguments, no fuss, to create some treasured professional photographs that you otherwise wouldn’t get. In this instance my husband was not included in the shoot, but when he saw the final selection of pictures he was a little upset not to have been. (This is from someone who hates having his picture taken.) We are therefore going to be heading back for a full family shoot. I never thought I would hear him suggest such a thing. This proves my point.

Emanuela has her studio at home in Clapham. A lovely bright room perfectly kitted out – toys for the little ones, endless outfits and props, snuggly blankets and the softest sheepskins rugs. As well as drinks, yummy pastry snacks and several heaters to make sure the babies are toasty warm at all times. Her studio is basically a home from home. This is essential I think when it comes to a newborn or family shoot. To get perfect images takes time, especially with a baby just a few weeks old. There is a fully equipped bathroom too, for all those inevitable accidents.

As you can see from our final images Emanuela did a wonderful job. We are super-pleased. So for all you guys living in and around London looking for a professional and friendly newborn or family photographer, Emanuela Redaschi is it.

P.S she is also very reasonably priced. And anyway creating memories is worth every penny…..
