Newborn photography: how it works

What are newborn portrait sessions like?

Newborn portrait sessions are a relaxed and fun experience.

Newborn portrait sessions can be either 2 hours, or 3-4 hours. The longer session allows for more lifestyle photography, and also to spend some time outdoors if you’d like some photographs in your favourite park.

I work at your baby’s pace, and allow plenty of time for stops – your newborn will likely have a couple of feeds during the session, and at the very least one nappy change! You can choose the start time that suits your family’s emerging routine best, I’m very flexible – most families find 10am works well.

I photograph your family as you are naturally – taking gorgeous portraits of your newborn baby as he or she sleeps, gazes at you or snuggles up.

We firmly believe that newborn babies are completely gorgeous in their own right – we don’t photograph babies tucked into buckets or kitchenware, but in their natural home environment.

“The photos are all really stunning, we are really happy with them. This photo session was perfect for a newborn baby! Being at our home it was easy for our family and Louise was very friendly, great with the baby and put us all at ease. The photos were so natural and caught our baby’s personality beautifully.” Sarah

Where will my newborn session take place?

Newborn portrait sessions generally take place entirely in the comfort of your own home.

If you’d like to go outside, we can also spend around half an hour outdoors in your garden or local park, or we can just go for a walk.

We can also take all the photographs either indoors or outdoors if you prefer.

I can also bring a pop-up studio backdrop if you’d like.

Can my family be involved?

Sure! I’ll take some gently posed family portraits too, as well as photographing each parent holding your baby.

If you have other children, I’ll photograph them with the newborn too – as well as also taking some individual photographs of your older children too.

Calm and flexibility

A mum myself, I know how important it is to make a newborn feel comfortable, and I’m careful to be quiet and calm around your new baby.

I’m very experienced with how to engage newborns during a portrait session.

I totally understand the need for flexibility in newborn portrait sessions and allow plenty of time to stop for feeds, nappy changes or any other little surprises.

While your newborn is having a little break, we can also take the opportunity to photograph Mum & Dad together.

“The photos are everything I hoped they would be and more – there are so many beautiful pictures. Louise has managed to capture us all extremely naturally which was exactly what I had hoped for. I will always treasure these photos of those special early days. I was impressed with Louise’s sense of calm – she clearly has a natural ability to engage with children. Thank you Louise!” Nell
