Your newborn Photoshoot

We allow at least a couple of hours for your newborn photoshoot. Your newborn photographer is very patient and experienced when it comes to settling baby. Ideally it’s nice to have both parents at the photo sessions to get some family pictures during the shoot. We understand you might not feel at your most fabulous but these first few pictures with your newborn baby will become incredibly special to you in years to come.
We have numerous set-ups, props, outfits, wraps and fine wools shawls for your baby so there’s no need to worry about bringing too much with you.
As you would expect we keep our studio nice and warm and cosy for your baby so that we can achieve beautiful sleepy pictures. The studio does of course have full nappy changing facilities and we allow plenty of time in each session of feeds.
 

Viewing and ordering your newborn photos

Once your newborn photoshoot is complete we’ll book in a viewing and ordering appointment for you. Your viewing is normally booked in a week after your photo shoot, leaving us plenty of time to beautifully edit all of your stunning newborn baby photos.
When you return to the studio and our viewing lounge you’ll be treated to a slideshow video of your photos. We’ll then guide you through the process of selecting and ordering your favourite photos.
We take card or cash payments on the day and payment plans are also available.
Once ordered your newborn photos are normally ready within a couple of weeks.
More more information about ordering your photos check out preparing to view your photos.

What’s next after your newborn Photoshoot?

Capturing your baby’s first year with professional photos is an amazing experience.
Before the first year cake smash finale there are three key stages we recommend. I’m smiling, typically taken between 3-6 months. I’m sitting, when baby is usually around 8 months old and I’m standing, whenever they go from first steps to mini marathon runner!
