Baby Photography

Hi, I'm Mel...

…a professional photographer and the owner behind the lens at Mel Wilson Photography. I work from my home-based boutique studio in Braintree Essex. I am within easy reach of Chelmsford, Great Dunmow, Colchester, Bishops Stortford & Stansted.

I specialise in timeless Maternity, precious Newborn & playful baby photography to show off your little one’s personality. 

There is nothing I love more than welcoming you with your new precious baby. It was only after having my own children that I found my passion for photography as I wanted to remember everything, from their little tiny toes to their button nose as they change and grow so fast. I have been trained specifically in newborn safety giving you reassurance that your new baby is in safe hands. Over the years I have had the pressure to train with some of the best Newborn/child photographers in the world, including Claire ElliottGary HillRob MankJade Gao and Nina Mace.

I think its so important for every mum out there to exist in photos, (starting with Maternity photos) these are the memories of your life, capture the times that give our life meaning and purpose. One day your children will be looking back at these times and wonder where you were?

Don’t put it off, you are perfect right now, just as you are.

Choose to exist, one day these photographs with be priceless.

Book a call with me, let’s make this happen.

I’m going to share here first that I am not comfortable being in front of the camera but given that I know exactly how your feeling!

That’s exactly why I’ll spend time with you and your little one’s to make you all feel at ease before any clicking even starts!! I promise we’ll have fun together and you will even forget that you are in front of my camera.

My superpower is making people feel relaxed, I’d be a gold at the Olympics for talking! Also, I have a knack when it comes to settling babies, I guess I’ve done it a lot!
