Newborn Photography and Pregnancy Photography
Ribbon and Pearl is a photography studio specialising in unique, custom newborn photography, baby photography and pregnancy photography.
Our studio is located in 6th zone, London (Hornchurch, RM12 6LL, 211 Station Lane) – with the easiest access possible – we are located directly opposite Hornchurch underground station. Access from M25, 406 and A13 within few minutes drive. If you’ll be coming from Central London, you don’t have a car and you don’t want to use the underground – Mini Cabs are a popular way of how our Clients get to us.
Newborn photography session: newborn photography session is scheduled in the first 14 days of life (5-10 days ideally).
Baby photography: babies up to 1 year old. I’m usually able to take sleepy pictures with babies 2-3 months old. The best times for the photoshoot in 1st year are 4th month, 7th month (when your baby starts to sit up) and of course 1 year old – smashcake session!
Family sessions: family sessions are very popular in our studio. Many of our newborn photography clients come back to us for more images of the whole family once the babies get older. Beside the studio shoots I usually try to take some pictures outside (weather depending) in nearby Country Park (2min from the studio).
Pregnancy sessions: most of the time I meet my clients for the first time on the maternity session they’ve booked together with the newborn session. This is a great way to get to know each other before the baby photoshoot – of course beside creating memorable pregnancy pictures!
First year plan: many of our clients decide to upgrade after the newborn photoshoot and they book a first year plan. It’s a great way to freeze the precious moments of the first year and a great saving too! Contact us for more details or book your session here.
My name is Katherine and I’m a maternity and newborn photographer. I’m a full time, fully trained and experienced photographer. I’ve photographed nearly 800 babies in the last 6 years.
Studio sessions (RM12 6LL), your home or the location of choice will include props and accessories. You are not limited to a fast session. Babies and small children tire easily, and their sessions will take this into account. I want parents to be much more relaxed and enjoy the session experience knowing the clock on the wall isn’t ticking the seconds away.
Baby sessions are best within the first 2 weeks of birth. During this time, your newborn will likely sleep most during the day, which will allow us to move him/her around without waking easily. Once you booked with us and just had your baby, give us a call/text or email us – we’ll then get back to you with few dates and times to choose from to schedule your newborn photography session. If you have just had a baby, don’t worry, give us a call and we may still be able to fit you in.
A typical maternity session will last 1,5 hour, studio newborn sessions start at 10am and finish at 2pm. This allows time for everyone to become comfortable so that sessions are not just a forced ‘must do’ with a camera – they’re memorable events.
We also run newborn photography workshops.
