Newborn sessions are extremely special, I just love to capture babies at this age being all sleepy and curly as well as their parents’ and siblings’ awe for the new addition to the family.
Newborn photography sessions are best done when babies are between 1 week old to three weeks old, as they are still very curly and very sleepy and so we are able to pose them more easily. The sessions can take between 2-4 hours depending on baby’s need to feed and how sleepy they are, every baby is different! The studio is well equipped to deal with feeding and changing babies and is heated to a high temperature to keep baby comfortable. First and foremost newborn safety is of utmost importance, and have attended numerous newborn photography courses.
It is best to book your newborn session well before baby is born as there are limited sessions available each month, bookings are made depending on due dates, but once baby is born the best date for the session is agreed. I can take some last minute bookings depending on availability and am happy to take older babies too but it may not be possible to do a typical newborn session with an older baby and there may be more awake shots than with a very young newborn.
Newborn shoots can be included as part of my Baby’s First Year Plan.
