My newborn sessions are designed to capture those first tiny moments which pass us by so quickly. Having two children myself I understand how special a new arrival is and how precious our little bundles are. It really is the best feeling in the world and I just love to capture these precious first moments in a beautiful and creative way. My home studio is warm and cosy and a peaceful relaxing environment for you and your new baby.
My newborn sessions are best in baby’s first 5-10 days when babies are super sleepy and easier to pose. However I can photograph a bit later if circumstances do not allow the earlier photos. Sessions can be booked anytime after your 20 week scan and I try to leave sessions free for last minute arrivals. If baby arrives a lot sooner or later than expected i always leave spaces to reschedule as I know that our little bundles arrive when they are ready. Parents are welcome to bring along anything personal that they would like included in the session or any props, clothing or special items which represent you or are meaningful to your family.
At the start of my session we will go through my large selection of handmade outfits and props so I can ensure the images I capture are perfect for you. I have a huge range of unique handmade outfits in all different sizes, beautiful hats, headbands, costumes, colourful swaddle wraps, baskets, bowls, you name it, I have it! I photograph a variety of poses and outfits including images on the beanbag, swaddled images and basket set up. During your session I also offer the opportunity for family and/ or sibling images too. This is entirely up to you but I really do love capturing the bond between new parents and baby, it is just so beautiful. Tiny bundles with little hands and toes look so cute held in mum or dads hands and arms or cuddle up with older siblings.
My sessions last around 2-3 hours but there will be no rush and we will go at the pace your baby wants. I like to make sure both parents and baby are as relaxed as possible and that you do not feel rushed in order to get the most from the session. I do not use flash photography and instead use a constant light source and natural light when possible to ensure baby is kept as settled and relaxed as possible. We will stop for feeds and cuddles as and when needed and I do my best to make the whole experience as relaxed and memorable as possible for you.
After your session, I edit the best 30-50 images and have proofs to you for viewing within ten days. You can then take your time to look over your images at home before deciding which products you would like.
I look forward to meeting your precious new arrival and capturing images of their first tiny moments. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me.
