Jennifer Gillam Photography has been photographing babies in this region since 2010. I’ve also partnered with Window to the Womb – Reading for many years. This partnership is one of the main reasons why so many of my newborn baby photography clients come from Reading. You can click here to find out more about this lovely pregnancy scanning clinic and the services they offer. I’m based just south of Newbury so probably only about 30 minutes from the centre of Reading. I am one of the few people in the region to specialise in pure, white, contemporary newborn photography. I have a very recognisable style of baby photography and have photographed 100s of newborn babies.
For a very long time I was purely a newborn baby photography specialist. Most of the babies I photographed came to my studio within the first few weeks. The ideal time for newborn photography used to be within the first 10 days. My style of photography has evolved now and it’s much more relaxed and natural. This means that it’s no longer critical to bring your baby to my studio within the first few weeks.
The Covid-19 lockdowns made me realise that I needed to start photographing older babies as well. So many of my clients missed out on a newborn photoshoot so I totally changed what I did! I photograph babies of all ages in much the same way now and it’s probably the best thing I ever did! This new style allows me to make the baby the primary focus of each photograph. There are no fussy props or outfits to detract from the beauty of the baby. My style is simple and honest and I think is much more natural.
Newborn Photography Reading – your local specialist
However, many of the babies I photograph are still very much newborns and it’s a magical little window I absolutely love to capture. New parents are so proud of their new baby and this shines through in the portraits we capture. Newborn baby photography is a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate a wonderful new life. It’s also your opportunity to create beautiful artwork for your home. You can click here to get an idea of what sorts of things you will be able to create with your newborn baby portraits.
