Newborn Photography Sessions

So you're having a baby! Congratulations, I look forward to meeting you and your little one so I can create some beautiful, timeless images for you and your family to treasure for years to come. The newborn stage lasts for such a short time that it really does pass by in a blur of nappies, feeding and getting to grips with the new little person in your life (I know, I've been there!). I would love to capture these fleeting newborn days for you and we have a range of beautiful accessories and props to make your images special and tailored to you. Newborn Sessions can include images with siblings and/or images with parents too, so you can capture your family together with your new addition.

Newborn sessions are best suited to babies aged between 5 days and 3 weeks and last up to 4 hours in my cosy studio in Steeton, West Yorkshire. This allows plenty of time for your baby to have feeds and changes as required and also gives you a chance to relax a little with a cuppa and a magazine whilst I create your images.  My studio is very relaxing, with comfy chairs and a supply of tea, coffee and biscuits on offer, to allow you to relax whilst I do the baby whispering! During a newborn session, I pose babies to create my signature style of imagery, which requires a great deal of skill and experience (and patience!). Safety is always my top priority and I have received in depth training on the safe posing and handling of newborn babies by some of the UK's top newborn photographer's and trainers.

To read my Newborn session Prep Guide, which gives details on how to prepare for your session, along with current adjustments to my Newborn sessions due to Covid-19, please click here.

You can book a newborn session anytime from your 12 week scan and I'd recommend booking well in advance to ensure I have availability. I recommend that we book your session for around a week after your due date and it's then just a case of keeping me posted on baby's arrival date, so we can move your session forwards or backwards a little as needed.


 You will be invited back to my studio to view your beautifully edited and enhanced gallery of 20 to 30 images and place your order, approximately 2 weeks after the date of your session and this appointment will be booked with you at the end of the session.

To book a Newborn Session, a non-refundable booking fee of £99 is required upon booking to secure the date and time of your session. This booking fee does not include digital images, prints or products but is credited against your order, placed at your viewing appointment. You are at no point under any obligation to purchase any of your images if you choose not to do so.

Newborn sessions are suitable for babies aged between 5 days to 3 weeks of age, but don't panic if your baby is already over 3 weeks old!  Please contact me, as I regularly photograph babies in a newborn style up to 6 weeks of age (although they might not be quite as sleepy! and certain poses may not be suitable), or you can check out My Baby Sessions, which are suitable for babies between 2 and 6 months of age.

I also offer a beautiful range products to choose from. Please take a look at my Products page for more details, or to book please contact me here.
