Newborn Photography

The first precious weeks of life fly by so quickly that it's easy to forget just how tiny your little one was. Celebrate your new arrival and create a special reminder of those early weeks with a newborn photography session.

For photographers, "newborn" refers to the period from birth up until around 3 weeks old, although it's sometimes possible to achieve these types of shots up to 6 weeks (or even later with preemies). During this period, most babies will sleep frequently and deeply while still having a tendency to curl up as they were in the womb and they'll be small and light enough to cradle in your hands or to snuggle into a variety of baskets or containers. This allows us to pose and position them for their photographs.  

A typical newborn photoshoot will be arranged for somewhere between just a few days and 3 weeks after birth. Outside of this window, refer to 'baby sessions' for ideas and inspiration about what's achievable.

I have a limited number of newborn sessions available each month. To ensure that a booking for your new arrival is absolutely guaranteed, reserve your photoshoot by registering your due date with me before the 7th month of pregnancy.
