NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Those first few weeks of having a baby can be a bit crazy & fly by as you adjust to all of the changes & before you know it your sweet newborn is no longer a newborn and and sooner than you realise they are running around the house! I aim to capture those memories and provide you with newborn photography that marks one of the most special times in your life. As a mother and specialist baby and child photographer, I am experienced in the art of safely posing newborn babies and offer a bespoke service tailoring my sessions with your favourite props and colours.

My clients come from far and wide but predominantly London and the surrounding areas including Twickenham, Richmond, Barnes, St. Margarets, Teddington, Kew, Chiswick, Kensington and other areas of North, South and West London. My approach is baby led posing – so what you wont see in my gallery are babies in unnatural forced positions – my aim is to produce beautiful artwork by carefully posing your baby in poses that are comfortable and safe – they lead the way and remain in control at all times!

If your baby is a little older and already sitting up it can be lovely to capture these key stages as they grow up – you can read more about milestone sessions for older babies here Baby photography

Pricing and Information

I offer 3 different styles of photography and my pricing is transparent from the start ensuring that you know from the very beginning how much you will be paying. It covers both the cost of my time and skill at the photoshoot and the time that is spent on the post production and editing of your images. I offer both an a la carte service and also prepared packages which provides complete flexibility on how you want to manage your photoshoot.

Please note that home visits will incur an charge for my travel time and any expenses if outside of the Richmond and Twickenham area.

When should I book?

Newborn photoshoots should ideally take place before the first 5 – 14 days of birth to ensure as much as possible that they are still in that sleepy phase to enable us to pose them and get those lovely peaceful shots. Aside from this, there is no reason not to do a photoshoot after this stage.

Due to the unpredictable nature of babies actual birth dates I offer a limited number of newborn photoshoots each month so when we secure your booking I will allocate you one of these slots. This allows me to be flexible and make adjustments if necessary when your little one arrives! For this reason however, I do recommend you contact me to book as early as possible within your last trimester to secure your space.
