Capturing Moments in Time

Photographer Braintree

Baby Photography

Hi, I'm Mel...

…a professional portrait 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 Maternity & Newborn photography.  I love to photograph pregnant ladies at the beginning of the next chapter in their life story. I want to capture this time for you so you have it forever.

​There is nothing I love more than to welcome you back 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 lady out there to have a beautiful portrait of herself and her children. I want to be the one to take the best photographs you have ever seen of yourself. You can do this with your children, your husband or partner, your sister, your mum or your best friend for a girls day out or even just a treat for yourself, something us mum’s don’t do enough!

You will see yourself as your loved ones see you. You are perfect right now, just as you are.

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

Now go wild let your imagination run away with you, design and experience your dream photo shoot.

Book a consultation 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’ll promise we’ll have fun together and you will even forget that you are in front of my camera.

My superpower is settling new babies and getting on with most (I’m going to say most) little ones. If you could see the stuff I’ve done to get the little ones who visit to feel happy and at ease you would think I was certifiable (this includes being the baby in a newborn shoot, on my newborn beanbag so they could get a photo of me first! (It’s lucky it’s BIG enough for me!!!)

I offer Wall Art to suit every taste and home, from Metal prints to circular Acrylic’s. My most popular wall product is my beautiful 20×20″ multi image white frame, this looks fab displayed in a row of three.
