Hi, I’m Ellie, Since I was sixteen, I have had a passion for photography and it’s always been a way for me to express myself.
I was always creative and vocal while growing up but struggled to express this creativity through words and writing. I am dyslexic and at times find it very frustrating to share my thoughts and expressions in this way. When I discovered photography, it literally set me free and made me extremely happy. I could finally express my feelings and emotions visually and started to see the world in new, wonderful ways.
Ironically, though academics were a struggle most of the time, education has been my best friend. Naturally, I studied photography for many years, honing my craft and learning the technical and practical side of this profession I love. I earned a BA in photography with first class honours, which is probably the second thing in my life I am most proud of. The first is Toby’s birth of course. He is my inspiration and what drives me to pursue my dreams.
At the heart of it all, I think I just love people. I love their many stories, varied lifestyles, and listening to their journeys and future plans. We all want to feel connected in some way and photographing people creates this sense of connection. There is an intangible transaction between the photographer and subject, and it’s captured in that one moment forever.
From all of this, I have organically grown to be a baby photographer. Combining my fine art photography background and passion for people has to lead me to this genre of newborn photography—a place I feel very content :).
I aim to capture those dreamy moments of a newborn’s life, to allow you to ponder those little personalities that at just a week old, are already forming. I want to capture and save the soft, pure, and innocent moments of a new baby, exploring all the tiny little features of these miracles before me, and give them to mum and dad to treasure forever. I want to create beautiful newborn and children’s portraits, that you can consider art.
Memories will be made and Lux will be there to capture them. ~ ELLIE

We chose LUX photography for our 7 month old daughters pictures - it was the best decision we could have made. Ellie was so lovely to work with and knew exactly what shots to take and when - which is difficult when you have a child who is constantly on the move! She’s a mobile photographer so it does make things a lot easier. It was nice to be in the comfort of your own home and it definitely made a difference to how relaxed our daughter was as well. I can’t recommend LUX photography enough - very professional and prompt - and Ellie makes you feel very comfortable. We were so pleased with our pictures, they were exactly what we were after and captured our daughters personality perfectly. More...
Would highly recommend! Ellie was so good with my 2 babies. She was really patient and professional at all times and the pictures are amazing. All in the comfort of my own home.
I cannot thank Ellie enough. I contacted Ellie once my daughter was a week old, worried I had left it too late to have some new born photos. Ellie was able to fit me in the following week and reassured me that new born pics can be taken upto 6 weeks old.As soon as I met Ellie it felt like we had known her for years. She was so easy to get along with and was brilliant with my five year old son who she was able to make laugh which helped to get such a natural smile on the photos.Ellie was brilliant with my daughter. She was able to capture some amazing new born photos and I knew as soon as she was taking the photos that I would need to buy all pics as there would be too much choice.The shoot was brilliant, Ellie made sure my daughter was warm enough and allowed time for feeding. She was so patient which allowed us to capture some great images. I was so excited to receive the images and could not believe how amazing they were. It made us fall in love with our children all over again. The poses, outfits and style were just what I wanted and I will treasure these pictures forever. She has captured the newborn features so wonderfully. Thank you Ellie! We will definitely be contacting you again in the future to capture more memories of our family. More...

When I first met Ellie I felt like I already knew her! She is very welcoming, friendly and a complete natural with babies and children. My two little ones took an instant liking to her. The photo shoot was relaxed but fun and we all enjoyed it. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Ellie, your work is brilliant xx More...

Ellie was fantastic my little one really was cranky but Ellie put us at ease and really made us feel comfortable. Great environment and experience and photos were Ab Fab!!! Get booked in asap
A day to remember!We had a newborn shoot with Lux when our baby girl was 17 days old.The studio is warm, welcoming and homely, a real treasure trove.The colour palette of all the accessories and props is beautiful, sophisticated and delicate. Ellie was amazing with our baby and much better than me at getting her settled ready to position. I would recommend this experience to anyone, so wish we had been in the position to do it with our first two babies. All of the photos are stunning, we still can't decide which ones we will be having printed. I suggest you attend in cool clothes or layers you can take off, the room has to be kept warm enough for a naked baby. Would make an ideal gift rather than the endless clothes and teddies new babies get! More...
