"Photography takes and instant out of time, altering life by holding it still" - Dorothea Lange
Ahhhh, newborns. The best time to take photos of them is when they're still very young; between 5 - 10 days. At that stage they're still really sleepy, love to be swaddled and will curl themselves up into those lovely positions or are very happy to be posed or swaddled andphotographed.
After 10 days, they start to become much more alert to the outside world and it's becomes much more tricky to create those stunning newborn photos that everyone loves.
For newborn shoots, you'll come to the studio where there's lots of space for baby and all of their things, and there'll be tea, coffee and biscuits waiting for you. Ideally baby needs to have had a good feed beforehand so that they're in a nice deep, milk drunk sleep for most of the session, but it's nice and warm in the studio, with a sofa and chairs for you to relax on and feed baby if they need any top ups!
Photos from the session are carefully edited and put into a password protected online gallery on my website so that they can be viewed.
Newborn sessions usually last around four hours and are £195, which includes 5 digital files. Images from the session can be purchased as prints, canvases, baby announcement cards and a whole host of other forms including acrylics, framed prints and metal.

Also available is a 'triple shoot'; which includes a selection of three of the following; a bump shoot, one when baby is less than 10 days old, one at 6 months and one at 12 months. Any three is £450 and includes 5 images from each session. The first date is secured with a deposit of 50%, with the balance due a week prior to the second .
