The ideal time for a newborn photo shoot is the first 10 days of their life. At this point it is possible to capture them sleeping so peacefully and to set up different positions without disturbing them, or their sleep!
The ideal location for the newborn shoot is my studio. I have created an environment which is just right to get the best from your baby, with perfect lighting and heating, along with lots of different sorts of props to capture all sorts of different images.
However, I know that getting out and about with a new baby isn't always the easiest thing, so I can arrange a shoot at your home (subject to mileage restrictions). Please see the pricing page for details of this.
I can provide props like hats, blankets and baskets, but please feel free to bring your own or to discuss ideas with me. I work around the baby's schedule, taking time to stop for feeding, changing and cuddles! The wellbeing of everyone is the most important thing, so we don't rush, which should make the experience an enjoyable one for all. It's best to book a newborn shoot about 8 weeks prior to your due date, but this can be changed depending on when your Little Miracle arrives! Please feel free to contact me at any point to check availability, as we all know newborns don't always arrive on schedule.
The first few weeks are so special and will pass by so quickly. It will be a privilege to catch those moments for you, so that you can keep and cherish them forever.
