Newborn and baby photography

Little Teeny Tiny Newborn Babies, with tiny hands and feet. Photographing Newborn babies is an absolute joy for me. Newborn photography sessions are an opportunity for you to capture your precious new baby in their very first days. Curled up and squishy like they were in the womb…
Have a look at the gallery below of just some of the lovely babies I have been lucky enough to photograph…

Newborn photography usually takes place at my home studio in Welwyn Garden city in Hertfordshire.
At my Studio will find an array of props, blankets, backdrops and wraps to make your baby’s photographs truly unique to you. My aim to to make this a calm and enjoyable experience to leave you with a set of photographs you can cherish for a lifetime. In order to keep baby calm and hopefully asleep the studio is usually very warm. This is to mimic the environment that the baby had in the womb; warm and cosy.

Photographing Newborn babies does take time and I allocate up to 4 hours for the photo-shoot. This may sound like a long time but this is often needed as in-between photos your baby will need to be settled, changed and possibly fed; all of which can take a little while. I will aim to do a number of different poses and set ups as well as parent and baby photographs, that way you can have a varied and full selection of beautifully composed and edited photographs.

Newborn photography is best in the first 21 days of babies birth; this is when babies are usually very sleep and easier to pose. After this point babies can become more alert and are easily woken up whilst posing and chaining. For this reason I do suggest that you contact me in your 7th, 8th or 9th month or pregnancy so I can get you pencilled in for the month surrounding your due date.
However don’t worry of you haven’t booked your session before this time. Some of the babies you see on this gallery are over that age and still photograph beautifully… it can just take a little longer.
A Newborn photography session costs £250 and includes 8 digital prints in high resolution on disk plus 3 10×8 printed photos. Click here to see more about the prices and packages.
