Maternity and Newborn Photography
Nothing quite compares with the thrill of a new baby. Those nine months of anticipation, filled with a mix of nerves and excitement about the little person growing in your tum.
The happiness you feel stroking your rounded tummy in those final weeks of your pregnancy. That moment when you first glimpse your child and your heart leaps for joy. The smell of their heads when you cuddle them. And the sight of their little hands gently held in yours.
When you invest in maternity and newborn photography, these are sights, smells and feelings that I can help you to remember forever.
I adore capturing the best moments of your life
Whether you are expecting your first baby or the newest member of your growing family, these precious moments are so important. By choosing me to capture beautiful, timeless photographs of you and of your newborn, you’re ensuring that you’ll be able to relive these precious moments again and again.
Many years from now, the memories will have faded and the exhaustion of your pregnancy and the birth will have long been forgotten. But, a look back at your pregnancy and at your newborn’s portraits will reignite the love and emotion of that moment.
You’ll never regret capturing this special time in photography. That I can guarantee you.
Your Maternity Session
A maternity session at my photography studio is a celebration of your pregnancy and a chance to reflect on the impending arrival of your baby.
Held in the final weeks of your pregnancy, a maternity session will provide you with stunning, elegant photographs which you will be proud to display on your walls at home.
Newborn Photography: At my studio or in your home?
In a baby’s first few days, their comfort is paramount.
So I offer the option of having their portraits taken in my studio, creating images which are more ‘dressed’ and artistic. Or a lifestyle portrait session can be held in your own home, for a more natural look.
Whichever setting you choose, I’ll ensure that they’re happy and content while I work my magic!
When to have a newborn photoshoot
As a mum, I know those early days pass all too quickly. That’s why I believe it’s so important to capture your baby’s first couple of weeks – when they’re at their most delicate and beautiful – before that time disappears forever.
Ideally, I like to photograph babies in the first ten to twelve days (when they’re at their sleepiest!).
However, if your baby is older than this, it’s still possible to get beautiful baby portraits. Visit the blog to discover what to expect from your photography session as your baby grows.
Make yourself at home
If you opt for a studio session, you’ll find that my studio is equipped with all the comforts of home – lots of space in which to relax, tea and coffee, and of course, baby changing facilities.
I want you to feel at ease the entire time you are with me and to enjoy the experience. You can literally leave the hard work to me and even have a sleep between feeds if you’d like to!
Baby-led portrait sessions
I know that every little one I photograph is a character with their own traits and personality. So, while I coo over all babies, it’s my job to create images that reflect who they already are.
I also realise being photographed is probably not high on their list of priorities! So I build plenty of cuddle and settling time between shots to keep them (and you) relaxed and content. Because I work around your baby’s feeding schedule, a newborn shoot can take up to four hours.
Safety is my number one priority
You’ll be reassured to know that I am passionate about the safety and comfort of your child. I have had extensive training in how to safely handle and pose newborn babies, and have worked with hundreds of babies. They could not be in better hands for their big moment in front of the camera. I will take great care of your little one – as if they were my own.
I’m a member of the UK’s Baby and Newborn Photography Association (BANPAS) and one of just ten ambassadors for the association.
