Newborn Sessions

Ideally, newborn sessions should be held with babies that are under 28 days old.

At this age they will hopefully still have that 'Newborn curl' &

are usually still sleeping a lot (although you may not feel like it!) 

My studio is nice and warm with lots of comfy blankets,

different coloured backgrounds and simple props.

 

During the session, your little one, who so far has been a little dream...may suddenly decide that today is the day that's all going to change.  Please do not worry yourself during the shoot. Patience is a wonderful thing and I have oodles of it. So when this happens we can take a break, relax, drink our tea & when they are ready we will try again. The more relaxed we all are the better for them.

When Should I book?

For Newborn photography, anytime after your 12-week scan. I will book you in for around 10 days after your due date. Then, once baby is here, we can change this if needed. Newborns are ideally photographed when 10-14 days old for the curliest, sleepiest shots but can still be sleepy enough upto around 4 weeks. 

How do I book?

You can take a look at the online calendar for a suitable date, just click the 'book now' button below. Or you're more than welcome to drop me a text or call on 07866 882421. If booking online please book in for around 10 days after your due date. I only offer a limited amount of Newborn sessions per month to allow date changes dependant on babies arrivals. Once your little one has arrived get in touch and we can change your session date if needed.

You will need to pay the session fee of £65 at the time of booking to secure your time and date.

 

What is included?

Your session fee covers 2 hours of studio time and the editing of your final gallery. It does not include any digital or print images.

During your session I will try and capture images of your baby, any siblings and parent portraits if desired.

Within 2 weeks, you will then receive a hand edited gallery of 20 - 30 images.

 

You can then decide which collection you would like from the options below. 

 

What happens once I book online?
