I'm constantly broody, so the fact I get to hold babies for a job is a dream come true! Having been there and done it twice, I know how easy it is to forget those perfect little details just after welcoming your baby.
A newborn will develop more in it's first month than it will in it's whole life! Their little fingers and toes, fluffy hair and perfect skin will begin to change and before you know it, your chubby baby will smile and stare at you with wonder. Pictures really are the best way to hold on to these memories and I love being able to do this for you.
When to Book?
Newborns are best photographed as early as possible, ideally between birth and 14 days as they tend to sleep a lot and are happy being curled up like in the womb. Up to 4 weeks is perfect, and older babies are welcome too, they just tend to be a bit more awake. If your baby arrives earlier than planned or you need more time to rest yourself, fear not, I will always work with you to ensure baby is happy and healthy, and you are too.
To secure a Newborn session within your due month, please make an enquiry early as I do tend to get booked up in advance. Dates aren't fixed and we will schedule your session once baby arrives.
Baby Safety and Comfort comes first!
I keep everything simple, and focus on the baby's details, as they are the most important part. I do this by using safe wrapping skills and a newborn posing bean bag, having completed a course on newborn safety and training in posing, so you know your baby is always well looked after.
Babies naturally enjoy warmth, darkness and feeling secure, so I use super soft knit fabrics, and natural materials. A cosy wrap and cuddle after a feed and babies should drift off to sleep allowing me to pose them on my beanbag. I use a natural light that keeps lighting soft and take my time to work with your babies needs.
I'll get to work while you relax and watch your baby in the various set ups we've chosen. There's tea coffee and a comfy sofa for napping on!
