filled with love
The baby photos from your newborn portrait photography session will be amongst the most treasured of your possessions. Those first few weeks with your new baby are so special but fly by in a whirlwind as you all adjust which is what makes it so important to capture the tiny details before your baby changes and the memory of how little they are fades.
My newborn photography sessions are relaxed and gentle. With my own personal experience with newborns and vast experience of photographing hundreds of babies over the last fifteen years, I will guide you and your baby through the whole process from booking to receiving your perfect newborn’s photos.
Whether this is your first or your fourth
baby, the arrival of your baby is the start of a journey.
Each moment is a step along your path together in life, each moment
together is reason enough to take a breath and hold your love close.
How long do sessions last?
Newborn sessions last for around two hours. Sometimes a little more if your baby takes a while to settle.
When is the best time for a newborn photography session?
In my experience newborn sessions work best at around a week old before they change and grow. I love to photograph babies at any age but these sessions are for new babies up to three weeks old.
Is this for the whole family?
Absolutely, bring your other children along. There’s plenty of room for them to play while we photograph your baby then we’ll pop them in as many shots as they want to be involved in. There’s no pressure, I keep it all very relaxed.
What is your studio like?
My studio is a little south of Guildford in Surrey and is available to shoot newborns, and babies. It is styled with unique vintage furnishings to suit the session, a calm and safe space to bring your newborn or relax and enjoy your photoshoot. This is also where I have an outdoor studio, private land where I sometimes shoot outdoor family and couples sessions. The studio is also open to clients who wish to see the products I offer first hand or come and try on items from my Studio Clothing Collection.
I’ve only just found you and my baby has already arrived, can I still book?
Newborn sessions are best done within the first three weeks to really capture the early details before they change. If I have a space for a last minute newborn session, I will pull out all the stops for you.
Will you help me with what to wear?
Of course, this is one of the most important elements of your session. We will work together before your shoot to plan your families outfits with clothing that I know will photograph well. I am available to you via WhatsApp to look at various options and piece together your outfits.
I feel very self conscious in front of the camera, will your sessions still work for me?
How long will I have to wait to see my photos?
What printed products do you offer?
I love seeing your photos in print and only use the very best print labs for my products. I offer stunning lay flat albums with incredible matte paper and bespoke covers as well as prints and framed prints. Do ask for more information, if you’d like something else, I can probably source it for you.

If I love it and it makes me feel something, it goes in the gallery.

If you would like to talk about having multiple sessions, I can design a bespoke package for you. Maternity and Newborn combined in a beautiful natural linen covered album? Or maybe Newborn and Sitter sessions to capture either end of that first six months? Tell me what your heart desires.
Do you have a question I haven’t answered above? Would you like to have a chat before you go any further to see if I am the right photographer for you?
I think it’s vital that we have a similar vision for your photos and your session so just ping me a quick message and we can fix up a time to talk.
