capturing those tiny features…
Those precious early days are over far too quickly, before you know it those tiny newborn features have developed and grown and will never be that tiny again! Why not capture them and treasure them forever, it will be the best investment you ever made!
Congratulations! If you are reading this page you may be pregnant and thinking about booking a newborn photography session, or you know someone who is and you are looking for them. I adore newborn sessions, there is nothing better than a squishy newborn with wrinkly hands and feet, tiny toes and a cute button nose!
I have specialised in newborn sessions and you can find out more about my safety training here.
Let me tell you more about the actual session:
At my home studio in Drayton, Norwich. My studio is warm and comfortable and will accommodate you and your babys needs. I also have everything I need to hand. You can view my studio here.
Bookings should be made during pregnancy as soon as possible so we can pencil a date in as sessions get booked up fast, your session/package fee will hold this date for you. I will then wait for contact from you to confirm the safe arrival of your baby and we will confirm the date and time. If you think you have left it too late to book just check my availability with me, sometimes due to other babies being late/early I have last minute space so its always worth checking!
Ideally the session should take place within the first 3-14 days of birth, although this is not essential it is the perfect time when baby is at its tiniest and sleepiest. If baby has gone past this stage and is very awake or doesn’t want to curl up in sleepy poses anymore we can focus on awake and sibling images. I also offer a natural newborn package for those who just want a shorter session that focuses on simple and natural newborn images.
What happens at the session?
Before the session I will prepare you with tips for how to get the best out of the session on the day. I have trained with one of the UKs leading newborn photographers learning how to soothe and settle baby to sleep for long enough to get some adorable poses. Of course this does not always go to plan which is why I give plenty of time (2-3 hours) and patience to these sessions so they remain peaceful and relaxed for you; and allow for changing and feeding baby when needed. I will work around baby to create some wonderful images for you, depending on which package you have chosen these might be simple and natural images on a blanket set up or using props (or both!)
What do you need?
I suggest that you bring everything you would need for half a day out with your newborn. I will make sure my studio is stocked with a few items you might need just incase, all I ask is that you bring plenty of your babies nappies and milk! If you have any particular blankets or hats you would like me to use (although I have plenty to choose from) you could bring those along too and I will see if I can incorporate them. If baby has a soother please bring it, even if they only use it for the session, it can be helpful if baby is feeling unsettled.
What happens after?
I like to make things as easy as possible for you so the images will be presented to you (usually after about 3 weeks) via a private online gallery so you can view in the comfort of your own home. You will have the chance to order any prints and products you like then.
