for your newborn session

The Details


Expect your newborn photography experience to be relaxed and fun. My goal with each session is to make things as seamless as possible for you. The days following a birth can be a whirlwind of activity and emotions - so think of your newborn session as a time to slow down and savour some quiet moments with your new baby.  



I have a pretty minimalist style when it comes to newborn portraits, a mixture of ‘relaxed and posed portraiture’ - and so for me, less is more. I absolutely love capturing images that are fresh and timeless. I prefer to keep the focus on you and your baby, rather than use too many props that tend to distract from the image. I love the natural look of whites, creams and beige. Of course a little touch of colour can be included in your session if you wish. Prior to your session, I send out a little questionnaire that helps me customise your session so you get the images you are after.



Your baby’s safety is my number one priority during any session. Every baby is different, you may have a specific pose that you would love captured, and I will always try to capture this, but it is important to remember not every baby poses the same. Some babies prefer to be either wrapped or naked, some like being posed on their back more than their tummy. It is my job to keep your little one comfortable and safe during their session. This is the best way to achieve a successful shoot with a relaxed sleepy baby. 



Your newborn session will take place in the comfort of your own home. I’ve been told many times by parents that they appreciate this so much. In the first few days after baby is born, it can be tough to leave the house and get everyone ready for a photo shoot. Because the shoot takes place in your own home environment, you will be more relaxed and able to enjoy the experience. I will bring everything needed for your session, and will set-up a mini portable ‘studio’ in a space that is close to a large window with beautiful natural light. 


I ensure you understand the true cost of any session and the print products I offer well before confirming your booking. I aim to keep everything as simple and clear as possible.



I really want everyone to feel confident when choosing a photographer and that you end up with someone you are truly happy with. The photographer you decide on might well become your family photographer for life, and this can be such a great relationship to have down the line.
