Newborn Session Information
Newborn sessions are relaxed and gentle, carried out in my dedicated newborn studio and usually last 3-4 hours. I work at your baby’s pace, enabling plenty of time for feeding, changing, soothing and cuddling. There are a large selection of gorgeous hats and beautiful blankets ready for your baby to snuggle down into. If you have a special item that you would like me to try and incorporate into the session please do bring it with you.
The studio has everything you need to be able to sit back and relax; hot drinks, comfy sofas and a warm tranquil environment. All you need to bring is your new little bundle, a few spare blankets to wrap baby in when feeding, and lots of milk to ensure they have a lovely full tummy. Your baby will usually curl up more and sleep better the younger they are, so I will try and arrange for you to bring your baby in when they are under two weeks old. For this reason, I strongly recommend booking your newborn session before your baby is born, and ideally after your twelve week scan. This ensures a session will be available for you and your new baby, and then all we do is schedule your session date once your baby arrives.
I understand how special and important the early days are, and I remember all too well how quickly they can pass when you are getting to know your new baby. As well as capturing truly special photographs for you, many parents tell me what a wonderful experience their newborn session was, and how they loved being able to switch off and enjoy watching their baby. A photograph is worth so much more when there is a positive memory attached to it, and I hope that you will love your photographs not only because of your beautiful baby, but also because of the special memories made.
