I strongly advise that you book your newborn shoot in with me as soon as possible. Ideally after your 12 or 20 week scan. I only take on a limited amount of shoots each month. This allows for not only an amazing shoot experience with me but also an excellent customer service too which is equally important.
Newborn Shoot fee ~ £59
Home Shoot fee ~ £79
Twin Newborn Shoot fee ~ £79

*** Please note the shoot fees do not include any products or digital files.
Posed, sleepy newborn images can only be shot in the studio. Lifestyle newborn shoots can be shot in your home.
How things work:
- An initial telephone and online pre consultation will be conducted.
- Your newborn shoot will be scheduled for a morning shoot.
- Posed images will be taken of your baby (with or without/props).
- Natural images taken of your baby.
- Post production and your gallery will be prepared a week after your session.
- You will return to view your images to the studio and place your order.
- Payment will be due at this appointment. Payment plans are possible.
If you would like a home shoot, images will be of a more relaxed lifestyle vibe. Partners, siblings and your dog/s can be included in your newborn shoot at no extra cost.
You can not schedule your Newborn shoot too early. We can book a tentative date in the diary and then work on the specifics after your baby has arrived. My newborn shoots always start late morning and are unhurried, totally private and relaxed allowing time for your baby’s needs.
The ideal time for a Newborn Shoot is between 7 to 28 days old. During these early days I am able to capture those really cute curled up sleepy poses. This is when your baby is very easy to manoeuvre as their ligaments are still soft and flexible. Awake shots can also be captured.
Do still contact me if your baby is already older than a month as I may be able to fit you in due to babies arriving early and late. The ideal maximum age for a newborn shoot is 6 weeks old. This age can be a bit more challenging but NOT impossible with my many years of experience. I have accomplished many of the same cute images of babies up to the age range 5 to 8 weeks although if you want to almost guarantee those curled up, sleepy images you will need have the shoot before your baby is 28 days old.
Very premature babies, twins, triplets or quads can be up to 8 to 12 weeks old if they have been in hospital care up until this point. If they haven’t they will need to be photographed straight after they have beed discharged to go home or within a 4 to 6 week period from birth.
