Maternity Photo Shoot

Being pregnant is a special time in a woman’s life, and not just because of the small miracle growing inside.

Pregnant bellies are beautiful, but they don’t have to be exposed in the images. We can capture some gorgeous maternity shots outside wearing your normal clothes.

The best time for your shoot is anywhere between 32 and 36 weeks of your pregnancy, as this is when your belly looks nicely rounded. Bring a cuddly toy, maybe some of your babies shoes, and if you can convince them, your partner.

Your maternity shoot comes with either a complimentary edited digital image (with printing rights), or a £25 product credit. This is priced at only £49, payable at the time of your booking or on the day of the shoot.

Book your maternity photo shoot with the contact page, or by calling me on 07887 997357

Newborn Photography

Newborn photography is best done when your baby is between 7 to 21 days old, as they are still in that sleepy stage.

We use a combination of natural backgrounds, props and soft blankets to give you a variety to your finished images.

Little one’s usually sleep through the shoot, but if they don’t it’s no problem as we will still capture beautiful photos.

You can also be photographed as a family, and any older brothers and sisters are welcome.

If you have any particular ideas on colours or props please let me know during your booking. Also if there are any personal childhood cuddly toys or blankets, bring them along too.

We give plenty of time to newborn photoshoots, keeping baby safe, but also warm and happy. Sessions usually begin around a feeding time to help them fall asleep. But we will take breaks whenever needed for changes, feeds and cuddles.

Photo Gallery - The Babies

The cost for a newborn session is £49 and comes with either a complimentary editing digital image (with printing rights), or a £25 product credit. This is payable at the time of your booking or on the day of the shoot.

If you want to give a newborn photoshoot as a gift (a great idea for a baby shower), then vouchers are available.

Sitter Sessions

If your baby is around 7 to 9 months, or is at that stage where they can sit independently but not run free yet, then a sitter session is ideal.

Children change enormously in their first year and if you had newborn pictures taken I bet it seems like ages ago and your son or daughter looks very different now.

So now is the perfect time for those awake photos with big smiles and big open eyes. Your baby will consciously look at the camera, laugh at peek-a-boo, and maybe even clap hands.

Sitter shoots all come with a complimentary edited digital image (with printing rights), or a £25 product credit, and are priced at only £49. This is payable at the time of your booking or on the day of the shoot.
