Precious first moments
capturing your newborn’s precious first moments gives you lifetime memories of those special first few newborn weeks that pass so very quickly.
Ideally, newborn sessions take place between 10 and 14 days old as baby is still (hopefully!) very sleepy and curled up. There’s no time limit on my sessions, your baby is always the main focal point of your session and a typical home newborn photo shoot lasts 3-4 hours which enables me to capture a variety of poses. We go at the pace of your baby which allows for plenty of time to stop for feeding, changing and of course cuddles!
Babies' safety is paramount to me and I will not rush them or force a pose they are not comfortable with. I work with minimal props and outfits for newborn shoots to ensure your images are timeless, natural-looking and all about your baby.
After the photoshoot, we will work together to select your favourite images and create stunning wall art and beautiful, personal keepsakes that are tailored to your taste, home and lifestyle that you will cherish forever. Everything is made to order and to a fine art standard, you can be sure of the very best hand-crafted products.
Best time to book your newborn photoshoot?
Newborns are best photographed in the first two weeks. During this time the babies will usually retain some of the natural curl and flexibility from when they were in your womb. This is ideal for capturing the curly poses of your beautiful, peaceful and sleepy baby.
Booking and Cost
As my diary can get incredibly busy, you need to book your newborn session as soon as you have a confirmed due date, at your 20-week scan, to guarantee availability in the first 14 days after birth when a baby is still sleepy and curled up.
Babies rarely arrive on time, and when you book with me, I guarantee you space within 10 days of you notifying me of the birth of your precious little one. Just let me know once your baby arrives and we will arrange a day to suit you and your new family - I always make sure I keep enough flexibility in my diary in this respect. If your baby has already arrived then don’t worry as it’s possible that I may still have some last-minute availability.
Your newborn photoshoot is always special! The session is free and includes everything to create beautiful images of your new baby. I do ask for a £45 non-refundable diary retainer (deposit) to secure your appointment which is deducted from your final order.
I also offer Maternity photo shoots which are a great way to remember this special & unique time. Maternity shoots are completely personal to you, so whether you want to fully show off your bump, or prefer something a little more reserved it’s totally up to you.
Partners and family members are encouraged to get involved and you can even choose to display your maternity photos and newborn photos together in the same frame, canvas or photo book.

During the current Coronavirus pandemic, I will be adhering to the most up-to-date Government guidance as published and updated in ‘Working safely during COVID-19 in other people’s homes’ and ‘Working safely during COVID-19: Close Contact Service.’
Any appointments that cannot be completed due to COVID-19 restrictions may be moved to an alternative date free of charge
