Newborn photo session experience

Your baby is only a newborn for a short time, and those early days are filled with so many special moments that you'll want to remember forever. Professional newborn photo session captures your baby’s first days of life in a simple, pure and timeless way, so that you can cherish and look back on them for years to come. During our session I will capture all the little details that make your baby unique, such as their tiny fingers and toes, their wispy hair, and their delicate features. These details are worth capturing as your newborn baby will change in a blink of an eye.

Booking your session

Newborn babies are best photographed under 12 days of life. This is when they are most sleepy, curled up and easily posed.

The best time to book your newborn session is before your baby is born, whilst still pregnant to guarantee a slot.

When booking your newborn photography session you will be required to sign a contract and pay the session fee. There will be a small questionnaire form, that you will be asked to fill, we will discuss the style of your session and any special requirements that you may have.

I will email you a preparation guide on what to expect during the session and how to best prepare your family. 


You will purchase your selected Newborn package on the day of the session. All Newborn Collections include digital images and highest quality Prints. Newborn packages start at £499 and clients spend on average £499-£1049. Payment plans are offered.

As an addition to the packages I sell the highest quality Wall Art. Please contact me for more details.

FINE ART MATS

The mats have a white core throughout and are made from a professional Archival board, which conforms to the Fine Art Guild requirements for Conservation (Level 2). The core is made from alpha cellulose fibres, featuring a soft, natural, white colour that will remain white (black or off-white option available). Each board is alkaline-sized, acid-free and calcium carbonate buffered for enhanced durability and longevity. Being conservation quality, boards are lignin-free with no optical brighteners. Cover papers are colourfast, resillient and bleed-resistant. The front board is the same as the back board giving it a really top end look and feel.
