I have had the privilege of photographing adorable new babies since 2012.  My newborn photography sessions are baby-led and have been designed to deliver a wonderful and heart-warming experience for parents, in a safe and calm environment. Your baby will be in very safe hands. I have carried out specialist training, mastering techniques and skills on how to pose a baby safely

Two types of newborn sessions available

Please note, newborn mini's are for baby only.  I love photographing siblings and parents and include these photos as part of my full newborn sessions.

Mini Newborn Session Vs Full Newborn session


A mini newborn session are for baby only. I love photographing siblings and family and these are included in my full newborn sessions.

What is different between a mini session and a full session?

  • The main difference is the length of the sessions. With a full newborn session more time is spent creating your images, offering you 20 gorgeous images to view. Mini newborn session are more focused on capturing 5 gorgeous images, and these are included in the price.
  • The mini session is for baby only. If you wish to have family and sibling images, then a full newborn session would be needed. Full sessions give me the time to get to know you all and ensure you are all relaxed, resulting in more natural and true images, to represent your family.
  • In the mini newborn session your baby will be creatively wrapped most of the time. From experience babies love being wrapped, it makes them feel secure. Due to the shorter length of a mini session this enable the baby to settle quicker.



Newborn photography sessions are scheduled for when your baby is ideally 5 – 14 days old.  However I will photograph babies up to 4 weeks old, should you hear about me after your baby has arrived.

It is advisable to book your session once you’ve had your 20 week scan to guarantee my availability for when your baby arrives. At the time of booking a newborn photo shoot we pencil in a date for your session, around your due date, this mean that my time has been allocated to you. Once your baby has arrived we confirm the date or schedule another.

My newborn sessions are baby-led.  You can never predict how a session will go and I like that!  I adapt each session to the needs of the baby, but also involve you throughout the session, nobody knows your baby better then you!

Before your session we will arrange a call to discuss the photo shoot in more detail.  After the call I will email over all the information discussed, including a comprehensive guide of ‘what to expect‘, this guide well help you best prepare for the shoot.
