Welcome to Marinela Malherbe Photography - Newborn & Baby Photographer Guildford

Firstly I would like to thank you for considering entrusting your photo shoot to me. I adore my work and would be delighted to be part of your journey documenting the very first few days of your baby’s life. These days fly past so quickly and they change in the blink of an eye. Before you know it those little newborn wrinkles and the milk drunk expressions change into 4 months old toes grabbing and giggles, 7 months old baby chub and 1st Birthday baby steps. Never again will they be this tiny, sleepy and brand new. The first year just fly by as a memory. Please make sure these precious memories of newborn freshness are captured to be treasured for generations to come.
Newborn and Baby Photography are my passion and the sessions are held in my home studio in Guildford. It is a place to relax and smile and I have families traveling from Surrey, London and Hampshire for my organic and vintage inspired Newborn and Baby Photography. With years of experience, I feel confident in assuring you that your little one will be in the safest of hands whether you choose a Newborn, Sitter or Cake Smash Session.
Much love,

Sitter Session | £75

For this session your little one will be around 6-9 months {ish} & be expected to sit unaided – or with a helping hand
nearby in case of ‘wobblers’ but is not yet actively crawling. Trying to crawl is fine but these sessions are best held when
little one is not yet trying to explore their environment. Siblings are more than welcome to attend for some photos with
their baby sibling & parents are also welcome to have some images taken also.

Newborn Sessions | £95

All newborn sessions are held within the warm & cosy studio in Guildford or in the comfort of your home. The sessions will be held by Marinela, who has photographed hundred of newborns and babies, so rest assured both you & your little one will be in the safest of hands throughout your time with her.
Newborn sessions must ideally be held within 16 days of babys birth, after this stage little ones can become colicky, more alert, unsettled & are less curled up. For this reason clients are recommended to book their little one a spot in my diary for their due month, once baby arrives we can choose a date that suits you both. Last minute bookings will try to be catered for but this isn’t always possible. During busy months it is essential to book ahead of baby arriving but do feel free to email for last minute availability if baby is already here & Marinela will do her best to fit you in.
Siblings are of course more than welcome to attend the session to have some images taken with their brand new baby sibling.
Outfits & props will be provided by Marinela so you don’t have to bring a thing.

Baby & Children Photography

Newborn baby photography is a genuinely beautiful field to have as a job. As a mother, I recall the moment I held my daughter in my arms as the photographer helped us capture those fantastic first weeks. Memories are amazing but having the images right there is just magical.
