I'm so glad you have decided to stop by my page. If you are looking for a Newborn/Baby photographer to help you freeze the precious moments of your little ones in a neutral & natural way I would love to be a part of that with you.


Photography gives us the chance to capture those fleeting moments that go by so fast in the first year of your baby’s life. I love capturing and turning those moments and memories into timeless photos that you and your family will cherish for a lifetime.

The most amazing photoshoot, Leonie made us feel relaxed from start to finish, she had my little boy smiling and even though he’s an escape artist now that he’s on the move, she managed to capture him whilst keeping him happy! Leonie had amazing props for the cake smash shoot and lovely neutral outfits to choose from, the photos were absolutely perfect! I can’t wait for our next shoot with her!".

1st Birthday Cake Smash

I was so nervous about trying to get my 1 year old to sit still for a cake-smash shoot but Leonie was so brilliant with her and kept her engaged throughout with songs, props and of course the cake! It was a really relaxed environment which didn’t feel forced at all, all the shots were captured candidly and the results are so beautiful. The studio is stunning, with a gorgeous timeless aesthetic, and Leonie is such a kind, friendly person who is amazing with children. We now have memories to cherish for a lifetime and I couldn’t recommend Isla Elodie Photography more!.“

1st birthday cake smash

We had the most amazing photoshoot with Isla Elodie Photography a couple of weeks ago. She got beautiful shots of our newborn son, and some gorgeous family and sibling shots too. We are over the moon and couldn't be happier with them! I can't stop looking at them.

Our son wasn't the easiest baby to photograph as he would not go to sleep and Leonie still did an amazing job and with such patience too!

Thank you so much Leonie, these are memories we will treasure forever and trying to pick some for canvases has been tough"

I recently had a 3rd birthday shoot for me son with Leonie. I literally couldn’t recommend her anymore. The shoot was so much fun. I was really worried my little boy wasn’t going to cooperate well in the shoot, but Leonie was so good at engaging him. I’ve got some absolutely stunning photos. I am so happy with the overall shoot and the photos. I would highly recommend Isla Elodie  photography.".

3rd Birthday

I am over the moon with the entire experience and photos. With my baby being so young and tiny it’s nerve wrecking for any new parent to trust a stranger with your baby and Leonie was amazing. Even down to the temperature of the studio. I would highly recommend using Leonie for any photo shoot but especially newborn. I look forward to the cake smash photo shoot next year 😍".
