As a newborn photographer in London, I believe that there is nothing more beautiful than the love we have for our children and although time moves fast, that love is forever. Memories are priceless and pictures capture a thousand heartbeats.
I’m fully qualified, accredited and have over 9 years experience in creating huge smiles and warm hearts for years to come.
I offer a wide range of different photography shoots from bump through childhood to ensure we can capture the different stages of your child’s life. From a bump to a newborn baby and from a sitter session to a cake smash, I’m confident we can plan a shoot together that you and your family will cherish for years to come.
I promise there is no hard selling. I don’t invite you for a hard sales session once your images are ready and instead, let you see them on an online gallery in the comfort of your own home with your family. You can purchase as little or as much as you like and I’m pretty sure the different options I provide will ensure you get the images that I know you will love.
As babies change so fast especially in their first year and most people opt for a newborn session and a cake smash session, mini milestone sessions generally take place between 6-8 months to capture the stage when they’ve just begun to sit on their own and they’ve started to show off their personalties and all the new skills they continue to learn.
Newborn photography tends to be posed with the use of props and cake smashes tend to be colourful and themed. The milestone baby session is an opportunity to capture your baby with their adorable baby rolls before they disappear and their cute little fingers and toes.
Your photography session will take place at my comfortable home studio environment in Northwood (HA6) in London, located centrally between Harrow and Watford with surrounding towns including Pinner, Stanmore, Hillingdon and Uxbridge. Once your session is booked and I have received your booking fee and signed contract, you will receive a specific address to attend your bespoke photography session.
I’ve been photographing full time for just over 11 years. I can’t believe it has been that long! I studied visual communication at university and started off by photographing weddings and soon realised that all my wedding clients were having babies and agreed to photograph their babies too. That’s when I fell in love with capturing the precious first moments and milestones of babies and children. It’s been just over 8 years since I photographed a baby for the first time and thankful to have photographed well over 500+ babies in that time.
Most of my clients come to me for newborn sessions which take place when your baby is between 4-21 days old. I also offer maternity sessions only for those who book a newborn session with me as well as milestone sessions when your baby is 6 months and of course, the first birthday. Many people opt for cake smash sessions to celebrate their little one’s first birthday and I love incorporating bespoke themes and colours to make their first birthday photos as beautiful and memorable as possible.
I only take up to 5 sessions a week generally with a maximum of 1 newborn session a day. I always recommend booking in advance as much as possible so the weeks following your due date are not taken. Just fill in the following short form and I’ll check my availability and get back to you with all of the details so we can plan your photography session.
Shaista's work is truly magical! She took such good care of us when we went to her studio and more importantly gave us some incredible images!
Shaista is so talented, sweet and patient! We did a newborn shoot with my toddler and husband and she was able to capture photos of our family that I will cherish forever.
Our family was fortunate enough to have had Shaista capture the most amazing photos of our newborn son. She was amazing, providing a loving environment and was simply wonderful to work with.
We honestly can't stop looking at the images! Our baby looks so adorably beautiful and I can't wait to show her in years to come how small and diddly she was, once upon a time.
