Newborn Portraits

An Experience to Remember

Newborns grow and change so quickly and therefore capturing this newborn stage really is a one off opportunity. We therefore take great care and pride in producing beautiful images for you to enjoy as part of a collection or as one of our Wall Art Pieces.

All the props that I use are designed with newborn babies in mind and I use only the softest most beautiful materials and textures.
I have a beautiful array of props, headbands, wraps and other hand knitted and handmade accessories from which you may choose so that I can create  beautiful photography for you. 

You are more than welcome to bring your own items as this will help to personalise your collection more.

My aim is for you to enjoy every moment of the session, as in many cases this is the first time a mother has left the house after giving birth. I therefore ensure that you are comfortable whereby drinks and magazines are always provided.
You are able to watch me photograph your little one and parents absolutely love to see the images created while their little one sleeps. 

If my style of photography appeals to you then please do drop me an email so that we can discuss what I can create for the newest member of your family. The best time for me to capture newborn images is between 5 and 16 days, although this is not set in stone – therefore please do contact me after your pregnancy has been confirmed so that we can discuss what you would like me to create. 


It is best to book your session within the first 2 weeks of babies arrival/due date. ​

For advanced bookings - If baby arrives earlier or late just get in touch for a revised date if necessary.


Your newborn session will take place in my dedicated newborn room. The studio is a safe, warm and comfortable haven for your newborn baby to curl up and sleep while I gently pose them to capture the most beautiful images for you.


After your session we will invite you back to see your photo collection on the big screen. You will be presented with a slide show of your images and then we'll work together to select your favourites and choose how you'd like them presented.

Our Newborn Session Fee is £90 which covers our time in studio, editing and creativity.


You will receive a complimentary framed  portrait of your choice with additional products available at an extra charge. There is no obligation to purchase more, but should you wish to, orders of £295 or more will receive a refund of the session fee.

A newborn session consists of up to three hours of styled newborn photography resulting in up to 30 beautiful images from which you may order.

***Please note, only one image is provided as part of your session fee***

Framed Images from £85
Collections from £295
Wall Art from £345

We do not provide individual prints only as part of a set or within collections.


There are different collections for different budgets, our entry level collection starts at £295 which consists of 5 images.


The range of what you could spend is quite broad, anywhere from £200 to £2000, and most people spend somewhere in the middle. No one knows what they’re going to want until they see the beauty that comes from their session.


There is never any obligation to purchase a package from us and there is definitely no pressure sales environment, the photo’s of your beautiful baby sell themselves.
