About Emily Graham photography
Hi, I’m Emily and I love to capture the important times in people’s lives. Whether it’s a first birthday party or a naming ceremony, newborn portrait or family photo; I specialise in getting to know people so that I can take beautiful, authentic photos of them.
I live in Walthamstow with my husband and two small children. Just like you, I'm knee deep in the beautiful mess that is parenthood. The teething, the sleepless nights and the daily food battles all made worthwhile by sleepy cuddles on the sofa or a hand drawn birthday card. That’s why I’m passionate about helping people document this special time in their lives.
I’m not just a photographer! I worked for nine years in video production and it was during this time that I bought my first DSLR camera and started using it to take still images. I used to take it everywhere with me; friends birthdays, weddings and kids parties. I discovered that I had a talent for capturing flattering, authentic and relaxed photos of people.
After my first son was born I retrained as a children’s nurse but I couldn’t let the photography go. So alongside my training I decided to turn my photography hobby into a business. I now get to do both which is amazing and I feel truly privileged to be able to work with some fantastic families in both my jobs.
Being a mother and paediatric nurse means I really understand children, and I believe that shows in my work. I am passionate about authentic, meaningful, newborn and child photography which is why my shoots are always family led, fun and relaxed.
Scroll down to find out my approach to capturing beautiful, authentic and natural photographs of your Newborn, child or family.
I apply the same principles to all my baby, child and family sessions. My goal is to provide you with images that are beautiful, authentic and natural.
Beautiful, because I use natural light and a combination of gentle directing and opportunistic shots to deliver artistic, flattering photos that will make you want to smile whenever you look at them.
Authentic, because I want my photos to really capture this time in your life as it is. I will never ask you to tidy up your house or dress a certain way! I also truly believe that newborns are beautiful just the way they are and that props and posing aren’t necessary when taking beautiful pictures of newborns and their families.
Natural, because my background in children’s nursing and my experience as a mother means that if there is one thing I understand it’s children. As such I have no expectations of how children should behave in a session. It’s perfectly natural for a newborn to want to stay close to you the entire time and equally natural for an older child to shy away from a stranger. I have some tricks up my sleeve to coax out a smile or two but ultimately I work around your child and you.
Emily isn't just a really good photographer she is also a pleasure to work with and has a rare and special talent for capturing the magic of the moment.
Not only is Emily super professional and great at what she does, she is wonderfully gentle and calm with your precious bundle.
