At your newborn photoshoot session we will create a calm atmosphere where I position your newborn baby simply and comfortably to create beautiful images, where baby is the true focus. 

This usually takes place within the first two weeks because baby is still sleepy and we’re more likely to capture those really dreamy shots of her calm and settled.

Allocate at least two hours, we need to keep baby happy, and this might mean pausing for feeds, nappy changes or just cuddles and settling baby.  Then watch me as I capture every detail beautifully of your newborn baby and build a natural and timeless collection of images for you and your family.

Newborn safety is of the upmost importance to me.  You can rest assured your baby is in safe hands.  I hold an NVQ Level 3 in childcare as well as a paediatric first aid certificate.  In short, I have been handling babies for more than twenty-five years.  

Come with your make-up and hair already done.

Dads and siblings welcome, this is an exciting time for everyone.

Bring a plain white or grey vest or baby-grow for baby

Family members, wear solid colours, whites, greys or pastels, avoid patterns, stripes and logos

Bring feeds, soothers (if you are using one) and nappy changing supplies

Make sure baby is well fed before the session to ensure a greater chance that she is settled during the shoot
