Hi, my name is Liliana.
I am a portrait photographer
based in Walthamstow, London, specialising in newborn and baby photography.
Photography, in particular photographing babies, is my absolute passion. I take great pride in the work I do and I feel honoured to know that you trust me to document your baby and be part of this incredible moment in your life.
Whether I’m photographing your baby alone, with siblings or parents, my work revolves around you and tells your story.
Be sure that when creating beautiful memories of your precious little one, newborn and baby safety is, above all, my number one priority. I am a fully insured professional who is trained in newborn safe posing techniques and I am also a certified paediatric first aider.
I was introduced to photography whilst studying for a degree in Media and Journalism in my native Portugal over 15 years ago. At the time, I was inspired to pursue a career in portraiture, by the stunning black and white images of the photographer and photojournalist Sebastião Salgado, in his books Migrations and The Children.
After graduating, I worked in media related jobs, but always felt that I was lacking professional joy and excitement. In 2011, I moved to London and decided to retrain as a photographer. I set up Liliana Séca Santos Photography in mid 2018 and I decided to focus solely on photographing babies a year later.
My photography aims to capture the unique essence of your baby — their perfect tiny little features and character — and document real life moments. Whether I’m photographing your baby alone, with siblings or parents, my work revolves around you and tells your story.
Each session is especially tailored to your individual needs and designed to be a relaxed and enjoyable experience. My goal is to build a picture of your baby and record genuine emotions while creating timeless memories for you to look back on and reminisce with great joy.
