Generally speaking, the ideal time to photograph your newborn baby is between 1-3 weeks old but there is no time that works for all as each family is different and each baby is different.
My Newborn sessions take at least 90 minutes, even with a very sleepy baby. Some babies sleep straight through but some need more frequent breaks for cuddling and feeding. Typically half the session time is devoted to comforting and feeding.
I offer a safe, calm environment for your precious new baby in the comfortable surroundings of a studio in my own home.
Alternatively, I will bring my portable studio to your home to make things even easier for you. Bringing a new baby into the world is hard enough.
When you book with me I will ask you to share your ideas and expectations for your portraits and your session and I will also dedicate some time to chat on the day. Take a peek at my Newborn Gallery for inspiration!
I recommend scheduling your newborn session while you are still pregnant! Once your baby is born please please call me to confirm if the estimated date still works and we adjust if necessary.
I am passionate about capturing images that you will fall in love with and become your families most treasured photographs. I do only offer a limited number of appointments each month. Please get in touch if you would like to secure a space.
