WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK
It is never too early to book your session as our diary has bookings months in advance. For newborns, it is best to book during your pregnancy but we will try our very best to accommodate you if your baby has already arrived

We pencil you in our diary for your due date and then once your baby is born we will arrange a day and time that is convenient for you. We take a limited number of newborn babies each month to ensure we can be flexible when we schedule your photo shoot.

WHAT IF MY BABY WONT SLEEP?

Our studio is set up to create the perfect environment for newborn photography so your baby feels warm, relaxed and peaceful. The sessions are baby led and we allow for plenty of time for feeding and cuddles. With this combination and our extensive knowledge of newborn babies we rarely get babies that don’t sleep at all. Some babies love to be awake during their session and that’s fine, we can work with them capturing beautiful images of their eyes open.

HOW OLD SHOULD MY BABY BE?

Ideally we like to photograph newborn babies between 5 and 21 days when possible so we can capture those fresh newborn features whilst they are still sleepy and can easily curl into that womb-like positions. But we totally understand that life with a newborn is hectic and time flies past so quickly. We are happy to photograph your baby at any age but after 6 weeks it does tend to become a little more tricky to get those curled up, sleepy shots. When they get a little older their eyes begin to focus more so we can create a gallery with lovely awake photos too.

DO YOU HAVE PROPS?
Yes we do. We have many high end props, beautiful blankets, wraps, hats and headbands in a range of colours for you to choose from. You are more than welcome to bring your own props too such as special teddies and blankets and even favourite toys for older babies.
HOW LONG ARE THE PHOTOSHOOTS?
On average, our newborn sessions last between 3-4 hours give or take. Our sessions are relaxed and baby led. We will stop for feeds and cuddles whenever it is needed, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your experience.
CAN WE BE IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS TOO? AND WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?
Yes of course! We love capturing the emotion and connection a parent has with their new baby and the love between a family. It is a memory you will treasure forever.
