The first few weeks with your newborn is such a special time. They change so quickly, and capturing the 'newness' of your precious little bundle in a photoshoot will give you such lovely memories to look back on and cherish.


The ideal time to carry out your newborn photoshoot is when your baby is between 7 and 21 days. Your baby will be more flexible and happy to curl up as it was in the womb so we can capture some cute little poses of your baby. If your baby is already a bit older, it's not too late - we can just adapt the session to capture some lovely images of your little one.  A variety of outfits, accessories and props for you to choose from will be provided as part of your shoot if required.  Sibling and parent shots can also be included in your session time.


Photo sessions take place at my small home studio, in Poole, Dorset, which is kept at a warm temperature to ensure your baby is comfortable.  I have trained with some amazing UK newborn trainers, learning the art of newborn posing and how to carry out poses safely.  The safety and wellbeing of your baby is my utmost priority during the shoot and your photo session will be totally led by your baby and what it is happy to do.  

​It's best to book your newborn shoot anytime after your 20 week scan so that a provisional date can be held for you. When your baby arrives, just drop me a message so we can then book in a confirmed date. 


Although a shoot will normally take around 2-3 hours if baby is very sleepy and settled, there is no rush and up to 4 hours is allowed to give time for baby to be fed/topped up and settled if needed.  Please do not worry if your baby takes longer to settle than normal, or wants more feeds than normal, I will just work around them.  It's better for them to be relaxed and content, than to rush them and make them unsettled.


If you do not want a full newborn photo session, I now offer mini newborn shoots.   These sessions are up to 1 hour long and include baby images only and do not include sibling or parent shots. 


Due to the time restraints, the poses may be more relaxed and include awake and asleep shots, depending on how settled the baby is.  Baby should arrive with a full tummy of milk, so they are hopefully content for the shoot and so we don't have to use some of the time slot for feeding.  The session includes 5 digital images, sent by digital transfer, chosen from a private viewing gallery of approximately 10 edited images. There is also the option to upgrade your package to include all 10 images from your gallery after your viewing.

A non-refundable deposit of £40 is required at the time of booking to secure either session, with the balance of your chosen collection due on the day of your shoot.

Collections cannot be combined for separate shoots. Wall art, professional prints and further digitals are available to purchase alongside collections, click here for more information
