Why choose me?

I have 10 years experience in the photographic industry and have the experience required to capture beautiful images, every time. I have undergone the appropriate safety training specifically relevant to newborn photography and continue with professional development within the field.

What is the best age for a newborn photography session?

As newborns change very quickly, it’s best to photograph them between 6-14 days old when babies are more likely to sleep during the session and are still flexible enough to curl into those cute poses.

What to expect from your newborn photography session

Each session is very different however we aim to make the experience a relaxed, calm expeience. After we have taken some details about how your baby is settling in to their new environment, how feeding is going etc we will then have an understanding of what poses and workflow is acheivable with your baby. We will usually start the session with a good feed to get your baby to sleep and then start with some gentle poses whilst your baby gets used to our touch and then we will progress through the session, capturing beautiful images for you. We will often end the session with some awake shots which are absolutely adorable!

Can we have a specific pose?

We will endeavour to capture a variety of set ups and poses duing your session. If you have a paticular pose that you would like, please let us know before your session.

How many photographs will we get?

Your gallery will contain between 20-25 images for you to choose from. We have packages available for you to purchase five, ten or all the images from your session.

More FAQ’s can be found here or why not request a newborn photography brochure?

How do I know what date to book in for?

Good question! We do not set a sepcific date at the booking stage – we confirm you a space based on your due date and then once you have arrived back home with your baby, we will schedule a date for your session. We have found this to be the best way as babies rarely actually arrive on their due date.

Newborn Session Pricing

A £50 deposit is taken at the time of booking to secure your session which is deducted from your chosen package. Additional prints and products are available to purchase if required.

There is no need to choose a package yet – once you have access to your viewing gallery after the session you can then choose which package you would like to purchase.

I love to chat!
