Welcome to Marinela Malherbe Photography - Newborn & Baby Photographer Guildford

Hello, thanks for stopping by! 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,

3 Month Old Milestone Session

This is the perfect session for those who have missed the opportunity to have a traditional newborn session & baby is now around 3-4 months old. This session focuses on those wide eyed beautiful expressions & gorgeous baby smiles.
The session itself is very relaxed & baby led, it focuses on the natural form of your baby & aims to capture their natural beauty with a heavy emphasis on both family & sibling posing too.

Sitter Session

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.

Further shoots can be scheduled at any point in your child’s life. 6 months, their first birthday, the opportunities are endless and I would be delighted to work with you again. Another joy of my job is watching these amazing newborns as they develop their characters, so return shoots are fantastic.

Family Photography Surrey

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.
