Top London Portrait Photographers for 2014: Olivia Shaw & Zelda Meyburgh


Local Portrait Photographers 2014

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be featuring a great collection of portrait photographers in London nominated by our readers. Choosing that special person to photograph your family can be a daunting experience. Hopefully our roundup will help make the decision process a little easier. Our first two nominees are Olivia Shaw and Zelda Meyburgh



Shaw Shots photographer, Olivia Shaw, began her passion for photography at a young age and after school she went onto study a degree. At University she developed a particular interest in portraiture, which she was able to develop on various trips around the world.   At the age of 22 Olivia started her own business and has been specialising in family and baby shoots and weddings for the past five years.

Olivia photographs babies, children and families in a natural way, always aiming to capture the true character of the little ones and the stage of life they are at.  Olivia will go to your home or local park, to ensure the children feel relaxed and at ease. She will usually aim to shoot with natural light where possible but can provide lighting when necessary.


“My main aim when shooting any portrait, wedding couple, baby or a celebrity, is to show their true personality in the photo. I love the time I spend with the ‘little ones’; working with them to capture their true character, whilst making sure they find the shoot fun and engaging. Every single shoot is different and represents the individuality of each child.”

Zelda started off as a wedding photographer in 2006. But after the birth of her son she changed direction and has been specialising in newborn, baby and child photography ever since. For the most part, she uses natural light, but if the elements aren’t co-operating will supplement with artificial lighting if needed.

“My favourite types of images are those where baby is photographed with mum and dad, there is something magical about those images. I also have a variety of  props that I use for baby posing”

Zelda Meyburgh
