Newborn babies grow so fast! And this is the only time in their life when they will look so adorabably tiny and precious, so make sure you capture memories of this time for ever! It may sound slightly extreme but it really is best to have your newborn photo session within the first 10 days of your baby’s life as this is when your new baby will be the most pose-able (they are more flexible then because their tiny bones haven’t all fused together) and the most sleepy (and therefore, the most obliging!) That said, if you are unable to attend a photography session this soon, we can still take your newborn photos up to 6 weeks old. Please just bear in mind that the older your newborn is, the longer your session is likely to be, as baby will probably be more alert to the proceedings and take longer to settle.
Most newborn Photography sessions are approximately 1-2 hours long – it doesn’t take this long to capture your photos but this allows for feeding & changing and settling your newborn into perfect cosy positions!
Newborn Photography is very popular and it’s always best to book up well in advance. We recommend that you book your session as early as possible while you are pregnant – We’ll pencil in a date soon after your due date but we are flexible with your appointment as we know babies rarely arrive when they are expected! Once your baby has arrived we’ll discuss and confirm a photo shoot time that is convenient to you.
We have a great assortment of props which can be used at your newborn session, from suitcases & baskets, to hats & headbands – the choice is yours what items we use for your newborn’s photos. We also love to include some of your own belongings in the photos to give them a really personal touch – maybe you have a vintage hat that’s been passed down through the generations or a gift from Aunty Anne of a little knitted outfit?
