Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Marinela and I am loving wife and a mommy of one beautiful little girl. I am a photographer specialising in newborn, baby and maternity photography in Andover, Hampshire.

I’ve been a baby lover all my life, always wanting to hold and snuggle with them. And there always been a passion for photography and a camera in my hands. But only the first time I photographed a newborn I knew I had truly found my inspiration.

Newborn baby photography is my specialty. There is something special about a newborn baby. Newborns are a gift and it is such a pleasure to be able to capture those first few days of life for your family. The ideal period for a newborn photography session is in the first 14 days of life, although I successfully photographed babies up to a month and older. Between the 5-14 days the babies are sleepy and curly which allows us to take adorable photos.

Either you prefer the natural, simple images or the fun and colourful look for your newborn photos, we have many options to choose from to match your style. I usually discuss these details with the clients before the session and together we can decide what colours and what props you would prefer for your newborn session. There is no need to bring props for your newborn photo session. My prop room is stoked to the brim with adorable outfits and props for your session. If you have something of sentimental value or a specific idea please discuss it with me prior to your session. This way I can incorporate it into the shoot. If you are looking for some inspiration you can check my portfolio. I am more than happy to try and reproduce some of your favourite newborn photos.

The studio

The newborn photo sessions are held in my studio in Andover or in the comfort of your home and typically last three to four hours. Bring something to eat and drink or you can order take away. You are welcome to bring a grandparent or a relative. Enjoy the “free” time to rest! Newborns are delicate and require my full attention, please make other arrangements for siblings during your newborn’s session.

Maternity Photography Andover | Maternity Photo Sessions Andover

Maternity photo sessions have a very special place in my heart. There is nothing more magical than feeling your baby inside you and I know how precious this time is in every woman life.

The maternity photo sessions take one to two hour with two outfit changes. I recommend you book your session when you are around 20 weeks pregnant. The ideal period of time to schedule the maternity session will be between the 28th and 34th week of pregnancy. Partners and children are always more than welcome to participate in your session.

I love everything about baby photography. Those gummy smiles, chubby toes, kissable cheeks.. Being a baby photographer is a dream come true. You can capture timeless beautiful photos for your baby at any age, you can never have enough. They are only this little for a little time.

To ensure that you will remember and experience these moments forever, be sure to invest in baby photography so you can capture these precious moments.

Sitter Photography Session | Smash and Splash Photo Sessions Andover

Sitter Photography Sessions and Smash Cake Photo Sessions are for babies older than 6 months and 1 year old anniversary. They are both lots of fun as the babies are usually curious enjoying the attention or the sweet cake and the fun splashing in the bubble bath after.

If you were not sure how to celebrate your little ones first year, a smash and splash photo session is the perfect way to remember these days. Both sitter photography session and the smash and splash photo sessions can be organised in the studio or outside during the beautiful summer days.

Baby’s first year plan

The “baby’s first year plan” consists of five sessions: the newborn session, the 3 month session, 6 month session, 9 month session and the 12 month/first birthday session. We also have the option to add a maternity session if preferred. This way you are sure you document all the changes in your baby’s first year.

The Studio | Andover studio photography

My studio is located in Andover, Hampshire. Here I am living my dream baby by baby creating a lifetime of sweet memories for your family. I have numerous props collected during the years from different countries. Also, during this time I mastered newborn posing and infant safety training with some of the most reputable newborn photographers around the world.

The studio is offering the perfect setting for your timeless portraits. The temperature, the light and the noise are controlled and as a result the baby will be sleepy and relaxed. Newborn and baby portraits are captured with continuous studio and natural light to ensure a calm session. For maternity photo sessions I use artistic light as well as natural for gorgeously glowing portraits.

I take great care to create a cozy and intimate setting. I treat all babies like they were my own and the studio is cleaned at the end of each session. The blankets and wraps are washed after each use.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
