Newborn Photographer covering Balsall Common and Meriden

Hello! My name is Lorraine Jardim and I have run Ellie J Photography, a newborn, child and family portrait business for over nine years.

As a professionally qualified newborn photographer, conveniently located near Meriden and Balsall Common, I have experience of photographing hundreds of babies.  You can be sure that I will work safely with your little one whilst creating beautiful images to help you remember those fleeting first few weeks of life.

Being blessed with three children of my own, I fully appreciate how quickly childhood passes.  This is one of the reasons why I first set up my business and why I now thoroughly enjoy helping other families create memories of their own. 

Qualified with both the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography) and Guild of Professional Photographers I am constantly updating my skills to ensure I can offer the best service to my clients and I am fortunate to have trained with some of the foremost photographers in the Country.  Safety during newborn photography is my number one concern, and I have had articles published about this important subject both nationally and internationally and regularly blog about the importance of safe practice in order to relay this important information to new parents and photographers alike.

Some of my newborn work is contained in the slideshow above with further newborn images here and maternity images here.  If you would like to book a newborn session with me or simply find out more please read the important information here.

My fully equipped, comfortable studio based in the lovely village of Fillongley has welcomed clients from across the UK and, being based in the heart of England, is just a fifteen minute drive from Balsall Common and nine minutes from Meriden.

If you are interested in booking a newborn portrait session with me or if you would like to discuss your requirements, please call me on 07765 718415 or fill in the contact form here

Many thanks!
