NATURAL NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
I use a simple style to create stunning images of your newborn. Simple poses where they are most comfortable and relaxed.
I much prefer a minimalist style for newborns as they are so perfect and need no extra props

Newborn Studio Photographs
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is in the first 14 days. That’s the time when a well fed baby will be very sleepy and will settle into a comfortable position. You will treasure the photographs from this very new stage. Tiny toes and lips and fingers. I like a very minimalist style that concentrates of the uniqueness of your baby.
Baby Studio Photographs
Babies change so much in the first 18 months of their lives. All those milestones! Smiling, sitting up, crawling and walking. These all make perfect moments to photograph. Never hesitate to have your baby’s photo taken as blink and they will have changed and grown just a little bit.
STUDIO NEWBORN & BABY SESSIONS
I have a small but perfectly formed studio next to my home. It’s a lovely bright space and very relaxing. You can just sit and chill while I take some precious photos of your newborn or baby.
WHAT SHOULD I BRINGÂ
For newborn photos you really don’t need to bring anything except yourself and your baby’s feeding and changing things.
Mostly newborns are fed at the start of the shoot and often again during the session. They settle much better on a full tummy.
Babies skin is so adorable and they are perfect just as they are. I have little wraps and blankets for your baby.
Bring a plain white or grey baby vest with either short or no sleeves. It should perfectly and not be too big.
The studio will be very warm so it’s more comfortable if you dress in very lightweight clothing.
I leave plenty of time for feeds and changes and nothing is rushed. We just go with whatever your newborn needs.
For older babies you should bring a couple ofÂ theirÂ favourite toys. Rattles or a favourite teddy are perfect.
Keep their clothing light in colour. Pale grey, white, cream all work very well. Please make sure that their clothes are
just the right size for them and not too big.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK
You can make a booking anytime. It’s best to book while you are still pregnant and then at least we have a date to aim for.
Once your baby has been born then if we adjust the date to suit if need be.
A session for a newborn is longer than for older babies. Typically it last two hours. This allows plenty of time for you and your baby to relax.
HOW DO I CHOOSE MY PHOTOGRAPHS
You will be invited back to the studio around two weeks after your session to view all the images and make your selection.
CAN I HAVE MY PHOTO TAKEN WITH MY BABY
Absolutely! It best to dress in light coloured clothing. Again grey, white, cream and soft shades all work well. Please don’t wear anything with a logo or a heavy pattern.
Dad is more than welcome to come too so as I can shoot some family photogaphs.
I suggest only two adults in the studio while your newborn session is taking place as this leads to a more calm and relaxed enviroment and your baby is more likely toÂ settle.
If you have other children then they are most welcome to come along for part of the shoot. It’s a good idea to have someone bring them to the shoot for a short time and then to collect them. If that’s not possible then I can do the family and sibling shots at the start of your session and then Dad can take the siblings to the park Â until we have finished your newborn shoot.
