Newborn Photographer Norwich: Timeless. Natural. Authentic.

Capture those unique early days with a newborn photography session

My style of newborn photography is pure, simple and timeless.

If you love neutral/organic tones and wish to see your baby snug and safe, every detail captured with a relaxed and unhurried approached, then welcome!

Natural, Beautiful Baby Photos

I really believe simplicity is key in remembering little newborn babies as they were, with their little flaky feet, ickle milk spots and curled up hands. All these details you soon forget in the whirlwind of parenthood.

I use handmade quality wraps and rompers, and the softest backgrounds, I don’t use props, though I love it when parents bring special keepsakes like a knitted blanket or teddy.

Mainly your photoshoot will be just your beautiful baby, no distractions.

Newborn Photoshoots with Jess – The Details

Newborn photography sessions are best captured in the first 6-14 days but can be up to 3 weeks old. In the early days, babies are still in that gorgeous squishy phase – all curly and sleepy from being in the womb.

A session usually lasts around 2 hours but always on baby’s timescale. I won’t keep you all day. The way I work means your baby can be captured when awake and asleep. Each baby is unique and so is each shoot is too, I am led by your baby, and they are always moved gently into comfy positions.

Siblings are welcome at a shoot, I love capturing the bond between brothers and sisters. Family and sibling images are always taken in a natural way: think cuddles and snuggles.

“Jess was absolutely fantastic. Loved every minute of our photo session today. She made us all feel very relaxed. She is amazing at how she works with newborns and toddlers and how she gets the photos just right. I would highly recommend Jess. 10 out of 10” 

Nearly Newborn Mini Package

This photography package is for older newborn babies 4-12 weeks and is the perfect option if you missed booking in those first few weeks, but would like family images and some simple images of your baby.

Unlike the newborn session,  this package is focused on the awake images as babies really start to enjoy awake time and start smiling.

If your baby is sleepy than great, we will take a few sleepy images,  but this is a short and sweet session of up to one hour of studio time.  This package is an ideal opportunity to take sibling and family images as well as 2 simple setups on the beanbag and flokati rug.

Babies ‘uncurl’ a week or so after birth and become more aware of their surroundings, at 4-12 weeks old the images will not be very posed. It is unlikely baby will sleep and fall naturally into the typical poses I do for little newborns.  But that means we get some cracking awake images as your baby’s little personality will start to shine through, and we get babbles and smiles.

If for any reason your baby is very unsettled babies can be rescheduled for 4 months onwards. You will be presented with a choice of approx 15 images to choose your favourite 10 from an online gallery. I also offer products such as mounted prints, albums and luxury wall art to showcase your images.

What you need to know

Where are you based?

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.

What qualifications do you have?

I have trained with two of the UK’s leading newborn photographers, I love to train regularly to enhance my skills, and I’m fully insured. I have captured hundreds of newborns and I am a PRO member of the British Association of Newborn Photographers. 

Can I order more pictures than the package includes?

Yes! You have the option to add on more images/ products once you have viewed your baby photo gallery.

When can we do the photoshoot?

Newborn shoots take place on weekdays, but special arrangements for school aged siblings can occasionally be made for after school and weekends.

Why does a newborn shoot take 2-3 hours?

I do not rush, it can take time to take photos of baby with siblings, 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, of which I have plenty!

I just want to say a huge thank you! We are so happy with all our photos! Absolutely love them and cannot wait to show all of the family!!

Jess created a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Mollie was so relaxed she slept through the whole thing!!

Would definitely not hesitate to use Jess again – highly recommend her!”
