Why choose Melanie East?

Why choose Melanie East?  It’s a good question isn’t it?   I can tell you why you should choose me, of course I can! But the best way for you to make a decision is to hear directly from my clients.  With that in mind I’ll be featuring a few very short interviews with clients who have had me photograph their baby as a newborn.  First up is Kate, mother of Jude.


Please can you describe your experience with me from beginning to end.

You were very professional and I felt very relaxed.  I felt that Jude was in safe hands from start to finish.

How did you feel watching me photograph your baby?

So proud.   Excited and amazed at how you positioned Jude without him stirring.   I knew that Jude was safely positioned throughout.  You were so gentle with him, it was lovely to see.

How did you feel when you watched the slideshow of images for the first time?

I cried! That is all you need to know!

Which five words would you use to describe the way that I work?

Professional, patient (one of the most patient people I have ever come across actually).  gentle, perfectionist, passionate.

Which five words would you use to describe your overall experience with me?

The best!  I don’t need five!

How do you feel when you look at your photographs now?  

Emotional.  I am so happy you managed to capture Jude at his tiniest and looking so beautiful.

If you were to tell others about me, what would you say?   And which five words would you use?

I would say, and so say “You must book Mel”.


Thank you so much Kate.   So why choose Melanie East?   Because I’m safe, gentle, patient and professional. You’ll love the experience.  You’ll feel relaxed and you will love your photographs every time you look at them.  And here’s is one of the images from Jude’s session:  Isn’t he just divine?!
