The newborn stage is so fleeting that you could honestly blink and miss it – especially if you’ve just become a new parent for the first time. It's a whirlwind of sleepless nights, midwife and health visitor appointments, and getting to know your new little person. If you are anything like me, you'll spend hours just watching them sleep, soaking in their newness and breathing in that amazing new baby smell.
If you have decided to capture all these wonderful newborn details with a newborn photography session, then it’s worth remembering that the ideal age is between six days and two weeks old. After this time your baby will be less curled up and less sleepy – mind you, that's not to say we can't get some amazing images, so there’s no need to shelve your photography session plans if your little one will be a little older on the day of their photography session.
I only ever book one full newborn session a day, so that my focus can be entirely on you and your baby's needs. You will never feel rushed or pressured. Once your baby has arrived, I will do my utmost to book your session for a time when it’s convenient to you. Newborn shoots are baby led, which means we go at your baby’s pace, always ensuring that they are content and comfortable, allowing plenty of time for feeds and cuddles.
