Pregnancy maternity baby bump photography east london


​My name is Mélodie, a London based photographer and founder of M' Photography East London. I studied fashion, photography and styling at London College of Communication and London College of Fashion. I am also a freelance film director: www.melodieroulaud.com.



How I work


I aim to steer away from the usual hackneyed photography while capturing the magic and uniqueness of people's life. I photograph my clients in the comfort of their home or on location and my approach is spontaneous and relaxed. I work with available light so the process is low key and non invasive.


The session usually starts with an informal chat. Everything is open to discussion (shoot ideas, poses, styling, etc..) in order to offer unique images. The session is completely bespoke and there can be as many outfit changes and family members included as you wish. I can mix family portrait with individual portrait if that is what you need, so please don't hesitate to ask. After the session, an edit of 30 to 40 retouched ready to print images will be uploaded to a private online portfolio within two weeks of the session.



When to book a pregnancy and newborn


Although you can book a session when you feel is the right time, I find that the best time to do pregnancy portraits is around the 26th to 36th week of pregnancy. For newborn photography, I recommend having a session in the first 10 days. It may seem early but babies start loosing their flexibility and gain a lot of energy from 10 days onward.
