Wow hadn’t realised how long it was since I last blogged. The School holidays came, the agility season started, Weddings, Newborns, dogs, horses, holidays, training camps it has just been busy, busy.

I will endeavour to get back into blogging and share some lovely images.

New Branding for Mel Taylor Photography

At last I glad to be able to announce some changes to Mel Taylor Photography. I have always been one to follow my heart and passions so I have decided to focus the business on the areas which I enjoy most.

Canine and Equine Photography and Child Portraits will be the areas I am specialising in. They say never work with Animals or children but I love the challenge that they bring and having worked with horses, owned my own horses, ponies and dogs and a being mother of two and step mum to a soon to be 21 yr old, I feel that I have plenty of knowledge and experience in all these areas.

I will also continue taking wedding bookings as I love spending the day capturing this special day for couples, but will only be taking on a small number of weddings each year to ensure that they get the time that I feel they need to ensure a quality end product.

A big thank you to  Peajaykay of East Hanney for my new logo.

The updated website will launch in the next few days!

Newborn and Baby Photography

I am offering Newborn and Baby photography in Oxfordshire. My aim is to bring beautiful but simplistic Newborn and Baby photography to Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas.

Newborn Baby

Newborn baby session are best done in the first 7-12 days, although having spent two weeks in hospital with my first baby I know that this is not always possible. Therefore we can try to get the sleepy poses everyone loves so much up to 8 weeks old. If your baby is older than this then don’t discount the option but give me a call to discuss what the best options are, depending on your babies routine.

All sessions are based in my home studio and the pace of the session is determined by your baby and his or her sleeping patterns. I usually suggest that you allow up to four hours for a Newborn session which accommodates, feeding time, winding, nappy changes, cuddles, soothing to sleep and change of photographic sets.  Light refreshments are provided and you will be with your baby at all times. Mum and Dad can both be involved or you can double up with a friend and share a session and have a good catch up at the same time.

Prior to your session I will talk to you about whether you have any favorite hobbies that we may try to set a theme for, and what colour schemes you like. You are welcome to bring toys and personal items from home to use as props, but I also have a good selection here.

Newborn Baby Portrait sessions can be provisionally booked prior to the birth and if your baby is late or early the session can be moved accordingly. Why not treat yourself to a “Watch Me Grow” session and get three studio sessions for the price of two and capture the important milestones in their first year.  For further details and images please look at my website

Newborn Baby

Older baby sessions are usually an hour to an hour and a half long. This allows time for your baby to get comfortable in the new surroundings and with me, and a few changes of set and outfits. It is best to book your appointment for the time of day that your baby is normally alert and happiest.
