Ellie J Photography | Newborn Photography Balsall Common and Meriden

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 ten years.

As a professionally qualified newborn photographer, conveniently located near Meriden and Balsall Common, I have photographed hundreds of babies.  You can be sure 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 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 constantly update my skills and have trained with some of the foremost photographers worldwide.  Newborn safety is my number one concern. I have written and had articles published about this 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 in the slideshow above with further newborn images here and maternity images here.  Information on my older baby photography (12 weeks to one year) is available 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.

You will find information about my older baby sessions (12 weeks to one year) here.

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!

Please Note:

As my diary gets so busy, it is best to book your newborn session with me while you are still pregnant

As I always have clients wanting to book in, I do operate a 'first come, first served' basis and on that basis cannot secure a booking without payment of the full session fee in advance.

My terms and conditions are applicable to every booking.
