A newborn photography session is a wonderful opportunity to capture your baby just after being born. The first couple of weeks pass quickly in a surreal blur (especially if it's your first!) and you will always appreciate having beautiful photographs of this incredible precious little being you've made.
Newborn photos are ideally done between 6 - 14 days old for that real newborn sweetness, and booked prior to birth (actual session date scheduled once your baby is born).
I live in Tregony on the Roseland in Cornwall, where I hold the majority of my sessions. A warm welcome awaits, and I try to make my sessions as relaxed as possible for new parents. Many of my clients like the fact that the session takes place in my home, which they find puts them at ease. Newborn photo sessions can be lengthy - they take between 1.5 to 3 hours usually, depending on how settled baby is that day. I advise not making plans for afterwards so there's no feeling rushed. We stop for as many feeds and cuddles as your baby requires and this can take up quite a lot of time.
I produce a mixture of posed portrait shots and candid unposed images. There are a million little details that will quickly change and fade from memory, and I'm here to help you remember them. My styling is quite natural. I like to keep things simple and uncluttered, with a few choice props and accessories for some images. I like to make each session unique, as each baby is unique and the images I create are led by them.
I include shots with parents and siblings in my newborn photo sessions, and have some outfits available if you're struggling with what to wear.
The £65 session fee is taken on booking to confirm and secure your slot, and once paid a prep guide will be sent with information about what to expect and how to prepare. We will be in touch in the lead up to your session if you have any special requests or questions.
In-home newborn sessions - I can come to you for images with a more documentary feel - to tell the story of this time in your lives, capturing the details of this fleeting period. If you want some candid images of your home life with a new baby, and like the idea of not having to travel out for the session then this is perfect for you. Your home is the backdrop, but I'll bring along a few blankets and baby things for some 'styled' photos. A travel charge may be added to the session fee.
Session fee of £65 includes pre-consultations and prep guide, session time (up to 3 hours), use of props and outfits and viewing & ordering session plus a 5x7" print.
