In a Newborn lifestyle session I will work with you to create beautiful, classic and timeless photography which captures the love, excitement and joy of getting to know your new baby in the comfort of your own home. The sessions are relaxed and gentle in pace and are completely baby led. I have an unobtrusive approach and will only loosely pose you and your baby, guiding you into the best light and settings. I aim to capture the whole story of your babies arrival into your family and will include small and precious details from the nursery and accessories to nappy changes and feeding, as you so wish.
The beauty of Newborn lifestyle photography is that babies can be up to 8 weeks old for their session. If your baby arrives earlier than planned or you need more time to rest yourself, please do not worry, I will always work with you to ensure baby is happy and healthy, and you are too.
How it works
I will use natural light in my images so on arrival at your home I will ask to have a look at a few of your rooms, to see where I feel the best setting and light will be. We may move about your house depending on light or to create a new scene. If it is a nice day, you are also welcome to have some photos in your garden, by your front door if you like, the options will be there. This session is completely about you and your family and what you want from your photos, if you have ideas or thoughts please do not hesitate to talk to me about them.
What to wear
To get the very best from your photos I suggest that you keep it simple when it comes to clothing. Pale and pastel tones next to baby tend to work best. Gentle patterns can also be lovely but try to avoid loud patterns as this can be distracting in the photographs.
For baby, have a couple of options to choose from, again keeping it simple, just vests or baby grows - or even just their nappy if you wish. If you require some guidance with clothing options - just give me a shout.
When to Book?
Ideally before the baby is born but anytime after your 20 week scan. Once you book your Newborn session with me, I will add your due date and details to my diary – dates are not fixed, we will schedule your session once baby makes their arrival.
Once baby has arrived, please contact me within a week of the birth, so we can set a final date for your Newborn session. If however, your baby is due fairly soon or has already arrived, feel free to contact me, as I may be able to fit you in.
