Newborn photography: how it works

What are newborn portrait sessions like?

Newborn portrait sessions are a relaxed and fun experience.

Newborn portrait sessions usually take 1.5 hours (but we allow for 2 hours, just in case!). You can choose the time that suits your family’s routine best, I’m very flexible.

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.

Where will my newborn photo shoot 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’ll find a suitable wall in your home to take some gently posed group shots against, and 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.
