The newborn stage is a magical time, with their adorable expressions and tiny wiggly body's.  Newborns move into the baby stage so quickly, and that is the reason why newborn photographraphy has become so popular.  The images will be a lasting memory of your baby's first few weeks from birth.

Their tiny features are to be remembered as they change so quickly.  Newborn sessions are a wonderful experience offering you a beautiful way to hold on to those precious few weeks.  

Sessions are completely baby-led, ensuring the comfort of your baby at all times.

I do get booked up 2 to 3 months in advanced so it is advisable to book as soon as you can. Many expectant parents book a session after their 20 week scan to guarantee my availability for when their baby arrives.


Within my newborn sessions I offer posed and more relaxed images of your baby. These sessions include family and sibling shots, that will highlight your beautiful family's connection and the love you all share.

There are 3 collections to choose from.  Collections start from £249.  This session includes the following 

  • 3-4 hour professional photogaphy service at my studio

  • Different set-ups and poses to create a beautiful gallery, full of varity.

  • Use of beautiful blankets, props and accessories

  • 20 professionlly edited images to choose from

  • Family and sibling shoots

  • HD slideshow

  • Face to face gallery reveal and product advice, if required

  • Password protected online gallery to share with family and friends, after your viewing session.


Full Newborn Photography – Session Information

At the time of booking a newborn photo shoot we pencil in a date for your session based around your due date. This means that my time has been allocated to you. The actual session date is set once your baby has been born, ideally aiming for baby to be between 5-21 days old, when they are most sleepy and curled up. Should you hear about my newborn sessions after your baby has arrived, I will always do my best to book you in. I will photograph babies up to 6 weeks old.

My newborn photography sessions are completely 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, and involve you throughout the session, nobody knows your baby better then you! My studio is heated so it is nice and warm and offers a very calm and relaxed environment.

Before your session a call will be arranged to discuss the photo shoot in more detail.  All the information discussed on the call will be emailed to you including the session guide. This guide contains lots of handy little hints and tips to make sure you get the most from your session and you come to the session ready to have a wonderful experience
