Capture those unique early days with a newborn photography session
Newborn photography sessions are best captured in the first 14 days but up to 4 weeks old. In the early days babies are still curly and sleepy from being in the womb. I adore my job and capturing all the little details of a newborn baby. I have a few headbands and hats at the studio but keep things simple and natual , to provide timeless images of your brand new baby. If your baby is here already, and you have not booked in please still get in touch sometimes I can make arrangements for a extra or last-minute shoot. I also offer a newborn mini package for older babies 4-12 weeks, please read my blog for further information. This is the perfect option if you missed booking in, in those first few weeks but would like family images and some simple images of your baby.
I really believe simplicity is key in remembering your little newborn as they were , with their little flaky feet, ickle milk spots and curled up hands . All these details you soon forget in the whirlwind that is parenthood, thats why i do not use any props but i do love it when parents bring keepsakes like , a knitted blanket or teddy.
I have a small cosy home studio in Norwich , Norfolk (Sprowston NR7) ; parents come in , sit back & relax while I work carefully with their baby. I am a PRO Level member of the British Association of Newborn Photographers, have photographed hundreds newborns over the last four years and invest in training regularly.

The newborn shoot is often the first time parents escape all the visitors and chaos. Once they get here its an opportunity to sit back & admire your baby.
Here are a few FAQs I often get asked:
Why does a newborn shoot take 2-3 hours? I do not rush ,it can take time to get sibling shoots and to then settle a baby into a deep sleep. Along with blankets changes, feeds and nappy changes time soon whizzes by ! I find my sessions hardly ever take longer than 2.5 hours but I ask parents to allow plenty of time. Also to get the little hands uncurled and babies moved into position takes time and patience .
What training have you had? I have trained with two of the UK’s leading newborn photographers, train regularly and i’m fully insured. I have also been approved by the British Association of Newborn Photographers.
My baby is 3 weeks old. Am I too late to have a newborn session? No not at all, ideally we photograph newborns in the first 14 days because they are still very sleepy and curled up from being in the womb. However, I book newborn shoots up to 5 weeks old. After 5 weeks I would advise you to book my Newborn Mini Package for babies 5-12 weeks old or wait until 4 months old.
Are siblings allowed to the shoot? YES! I love capturing families and the love between siblings. I do ask that if possible one parent can take the older siblings out to the park so they do not disturb the sleeping baby. There is no extra cost though the majority of the session is dedicated to the newborn baby.
