Newborn Photography

BOOK NOW

Marking the birth of a baby with a newborn photoshoot is the most popular reason for a professional photoshoot. There is no bigger moment in your lovely family history than the birth of your baby. Let me help you celebrate this momentous moment with stunning portraits of you all.

ALL ABOUT FAMILY

Family is everything at my newborn photography. Parents, siblings and the family dog are all part of your baby’s life and should all be a part of your baby’s shoot.

YOUR CHOICE OF STYLE

I like to offer my clients choices so I can create portraits of your baby you are sure to love. Choosing is down to personal taste. Whatever you prefer, all are beautifully lit and posed even when they look ‘natural’.

LIGHT, NATURAL

If you prefer a light, natural and organic feel, I would suggest my lifestyle set. Here I can photograph you in more of documentary style. This gives more natural portraits with genuine feeling and memories.

DARK, STYLISED

You may prefer a slicker looking portrait, using more obvious studio lighting and more stylised poses. If you love black and white portraits, you will love this style.

Using a dark backdrop and professional lighting and posing, I can create stunning wall-worthy portraits like these…

BABY’S PORTRAITS

I always include a variety of props in my newborn sessions. Your family shots come first, then we move on to portraits of your baby using a posing table, beds, baskets or shelves. These portraits are reliant on your baby being asleep, which is why your session will last 2-3 hours.

WHEN IS BEST?

If you would like a newborn shoot with me, book in a couple of months in advance on your due date so I can manage my diary. I can only fit in2-3 shoots per week and quickly get booked up.

Traditionally, babies are best brought to the studio between 7 and 14 days. This is because they are sleepiest at this stage. After two weeks, some babies get unsettled or break out in baby acne. However, 2020 lockdowns taught me that this ‘newborn’ stage can be extended well to around 12 weeks. Babies will just be more alert and some props will be limited, but they will also be characterful and smiley, which parents love.
