Whether you are a first time parent or you are adding to your family, bringing a new human into the world is nothing short of incredible.
I would love to record some memories for you and your family by taking some gorgeous professional photographs.
My photography sessions are baby led, meaning that we simply go with the flow and the needs of your newborn. I allow plenty of time for sessions so you can stop and feed or cuddle your baby whenever you need to.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best age for a newborn session?
The ideal age is before two weeks old. After this time babies start to change and grow rapidly. They also start to become more wakeful. Having your baby sleepy and settled allows us to work with you and your baby in a range of poses. However if you have missed this two week window, sessions for newborns can be undertaken up to 8 weeks.
How do I prepare my baby before the session?
It is not necessary to do anything particular prior to the session. Where possible, we recommend that you feed your baby while we are setting up our equipment in your home. If your baby has very dry skin, we sometimes recommend applying moisturiser the night before and again in the morning prior to your session.
What do I wear?
We recommend simple attire avoiding tops with bright complicated patterns or logos as these can detract from the overall image. Wear what you feel comfortable in whether is your best dress or your comfiest T-shirt. Neat fingernails are important for shots that may include your hands. It is best to dress light since we will warm up the room in order to safely photograph your baby without clothes on, therefore the temperature is set to be perfect for your baby but a little warm for adults.
Can my other children be in the photos?
Of course. We are happy to take photographs both of you, and of your other children as part of the session. We usually try to take the family shots at the beginning of the photoshoot. We know that the attention span of children doesn’t last too long, so we get these done first in most circumstances.
