The newborn photoshoot

The best time to photograph newborns is between 5 and 12 days old while they are still sleepy and curled up.   I appreciate this may be one of the first times that you leave home with your new baby and my studio is comfortable and cosy and you will be able to relax on the sofa with tea and cake during the session.

Newborn sessions are scheduled to last up to 3 hours as I work at the baby's pace and allow plenty of opportunity for cuddles, feeding and settling.  It is a relaxed photoshoot and I take my time to set up the poses and make sure your baby is always warm and comfortable.

I also include photographs of your baby with parents and siblings should you wish.

I advise booking in your newborn shoot as early as possible and I will schedule in a date around 7 - 10 days after your due date.   If you let me know when your baby arrives I can then adjust the date if necessary dependant on whether your baby arrives earlier or later.

Once you have booked a date I will keep in touch and nearer the time will send you all the information that you need to prior to the photoshoot.  

Older babies

I love to photograph babies at all stages and if you do not have a newborn photoshoot there are many opportunities to capture beautiful images both during those early weeks and throughout the first year.

Sitter sessions are very popular and are held between 6 - 9 months when your baby can sit unaided.  We can create beautiful images of smiles and chuckles and a whole array of expressions as they explore the world around them.

Babies grow and change in the blink of an eye and the first year is such a wonderful and precious time to photograph.  These truly are memories that you will treasure and will always make you smile.

After the photoshoot

After the photoshoot I will edit and prepare a gallery of 20 final images presented in both black and white and colour.  We will book in a date between 1 to 2 weeks after the photoshoot to meet again for a viewing and ordering session at the studio.  

You will then be able to view your final images and select your favourites.  I am a great believer in the printed image and have beautiful products from stunning gallery art blocks for the wall through to folio boxes of mounted fine art prints. All display products are available at the studio and we can discuss together the best ones for your chosen images.
