I know from experience that taking pictures of newborn babies can take time. I allow around three hours for each session so that your baby is always comfortable. Sessions are baby-led, so there will always be time to take breaks to feed and change your baby if needed. I am flexible so we can get the best pictures and create some beautiful memories.
Newborn sessions are best held up to three weeks old, this is a great time to capture those beautiful “sleepy moments” and also those cute “windy smiles”. Babies are also easier to pose at this time, as they still like to curl up as if they are in Mummy’s womb.
You will need to book your session in advance, and we can work out what is the best date based on your due date. Every photographer has their own style and favourite poses; I think babies look at their sweetest in natural poses. Bookings are flexible, so if your baby has arrived and you have not yet booked a photography session please still get in touch there’s still time.
Would highly recommend! Ellie was so good with my 2 babies. She was really patient and professional at all times and the pictures are amazing. All in the comfort of my own home

I know that committing to buying a photography session and package may seem daunting; I can't imagine paying upfront for a big purchase without seeing it first.
For this reason, I do not charge you for anything upfront; there are no hidden costs. You only buy the images you love! No hard sell.
If for any reason you are truly unhappy with my service I am happy to refund you your deposit.
NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION PACKAGES
Note: Your images will go through a quality controlled selection process. A final gallery of 25 images (subject to T+Cs) will be individually edited using industry-standard software and selection of editing techniques to further enhance your photos to create stunning portraits of your beautiful baby.
Booking a newborn session couldn’t be any easier, we will book your due date in the diary and confirm when the actual session date when the baby arrives. I recommend booking your session in around your 20-week scan.
Frequently asked questions
When should I book my session?
Where will the session take place, do I need to prepare anything?
How old should my baby be for the photoshoot?
What time will you arrive on the day?
Sessions begin at 10 am and lasts up to 3 hours per shoot. With newborn photography sessions, not only are you getting a photographer who devotes quality time and energy to each project, but there is plenty of time for feeding, cuddles, nappy changes, as well as changes of props and blankets.
Can we have family pictures?
Yes, of course, you can. Please chose package two or three to include family and sibling shots. This will allow me more time to capture these images for you and change backdrops for your portraits.
