Hi there, I’m Chanel, the photographer and proud owner of Chanel O Photography with a BA (Hons) degree in Information Design, and a design background in advertising, my passion for people, beautiful moments & lover of all cute things, that inspired me to establish this platform.

I capture the joyous moments, whether it is Couples, Maternity, Newborns, Baby Toddlers or Family sessions. Every session is such an honour for me to be an active part of any celebration on earth!

My Philosophy

I am truly blessed to have found what makes me happy and to be able to do it every day. I document the growth of families through maternity and newborn photography and the people that makes up the fabric of their lives. I am fortunate to make women feel beautiful during their maternity session and capture the perfection of a newborn baby – a great reminder of the joy of pregnancy and witness to the uniqueness of your family. I believe that life is a wonderful gift from God and that these moments of awe should be captured… to be remembered forever.


I blink my eyes open each morning, inch out of bed, and pull back the window curtains, ensuring the light that leaks into the room avoids my husband’s eyes. The early sun smiles and I take a deep breath. In this moment, I realise I have the best job in the world. I document Love & Joy. I’m lucky to photograph two souls growing towards a family, committed to the promise of forever.

“Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” Emily Brontë
