CAPTURE THEIR TINY DETAILS

Newborn Photo Shoot

The first few days of your babies life are so precious and go by so fast, once these details have been captured you have them forever. I love to capture their tiny toes and their cute button nose, pouting lips and sometimes even a smile

Newborn Photo are best taken when baby is between 5-14 days old. This is when baby sleeps well and still curls up in those newborn curly sleep positions like they were in mummy’s tummy. I specalise in a more natural, baby led style of Newborn photography. 

I do also offer sessions for older Newborns between 3-10 weeks old, these sessions are all about baby, they are not posed they are natural more lifestyle images.

My Newborn sessions are relaxed, designed to put new parents at ease. My aim is to keep your baby warm, comfortable and most importantly safe.

I am fully training in Newborn safety and have plenty of experience comforting babies having had my own children.

I love to include parents in the session but if you are not ready for this (I know you are not feeling your best after just having a baby with sleepless nights, I don’t think I brushed my hair for the first couple of days after having my little girl!) I will use hands and close up cuddles.

Why have a newborn shoot

After having a baby it’s like time goes by faster, you’re in a haze of feeds, nappies and sleepless nights (sorry no one really prepares you for this bit!) but that is why it’s SO important to have a newborn shoot. You will have your memories but they will fade over time, you wont remember just how small your babies tiny fingers were or how they could curl up in your hand.

During a Newborn shoot I will capture as much of their details as I can so you don’t just have the faded memories you have the captured details exactly as they were

What does a Newborn shoot with me look like?

Details

My boutique studio based in Braintree has been specially designed for my baby sessions.

I have everything I could or you could possibly need (except baby milk). Everything from blankets to nappies to coffee (for parents obviously!) 

Its always a lovely, warm and relaxed place. All white as I think that makes for timeless images. 

I have a natural baby led method of newborn photography, I will not put your baby into uncomfortable poses. I will follow their lead and they will let me know if their not happy with something.

Your baby will be on a newborn beanbag from the start of the session which has been especially designed to keep your baby safe and comfortable. I will then use some carefully selected props to give you some verity. 

I will try where possible to capture all your babies details, like there hands and feet just so you can remember how tiny they were.

I will also select props that will compliment your photos and not take anything away from your babies beauty as it should be all about them.

Is fear holding you back?

I completely get that you maybe a little worried about booking a newborn shoot, as you may have to stay in hospital for a little longer, or you may have a very unsettled baby. Well I am here to say don’t worry about that, it’s my job to make your newborn shoot work for you. Not everyone can come 5 days after giving birth but the option is there if you can. I have done newborn shoots where the baby is a little older around 12 weeks as it has taken that long to settle in to becoming a new parent (it’s not always easy I completely get that after all I have two of my own) nothing is too much trouble if we have to delay the shoot for any reason that’s fine.

I have been doing this for 7 years now and if I get a baby that is unsettled I will work with the parents to comfort baby so the shoot can go on. In all of the 7 years I have been photographing newborn babies I have never had to reschedule to have a baby back. I have always managed to get the shoots that the parents really want even if the baby has been a little unsettled.
