About Emily Graham photography
Hello! I’m Emily and I love capturing life's special moments. Whether it's a first birthday party or a naming ceremony, newborn portrait or family photo; I specialise in getting to know people and taking pictures of them how they see themselves.
I live in Walthamstow with my husband and two boys. They are hilarious and exhausting and on the rare occasion they are sitting still and not whinging, I love taking pictures of them too!
I worked for over nine years in video and communications as a camera operator and editor. It was then that I bought my first proper 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 soon realised that taking beautiful pictures of people made them happy - and that made me happy!
After my first son was born I decided to train as a children’s nurse. But my passion for photography has always remained. So, alongside my nursing training I decided to turn my photography hobby into a business. I now do both which is brilliant and I feel really privileged to get to work with some amazing kids in both my jobs.
Being a mum of two and a paediatric nurse means I really understand children and I believe that shows in my work. I am passionate about safe, meaningful, newborn and child photography which is why my shoots are always family led, fun and relaxed.
Scroll down to find out about my approach to capturing beautiful, natural and relaxed photographs of your Newborn, child or family.
Traditional newborn photography usually entails heavy use of lights, props and posing and is considered by some a real art-form. That said, it’s just not me! I truly believe that newborns are beautiful just the way they are. For me the props and the posing aren’t necessary when taking beautiful pictures of newborns and their families. My newborn and lifestyle shoots take place at your home. The place where you and your family feel most relaxed.
My approach is gentle, natural and baby led! I apply the same principles to all my maternity, toddler and family sessions. I know that a familiar environment = relaxed happy children = great photos!
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.
