newborn & maternity
My sessions usually last anywhere between 2-4 hours - this is totally normal! Don’t feel anxious if most of the session is taken up with soothing, moving, dressing, or calming your baby back to sleep, this too is completely normal! Newborn sessions are markedly less fast-paced than any other type of photo shoot, so relax and enjoy the day - I know I will be!
Understandably, there might be some messes - don’t panic, I will be ready with wipes, nappies, nappy pads and towels, and will be happy to clean anything up - nothing phases me!
Note: It is vital to have a newborn photography session when your baby is between 0-10 days old as this is when they’ll be most sleepy and moveable (however, lifestyle shoots with baby and parents can be done when baby is a little older). I recommend booking your session early as I only have a number of spaces a month for newborn sessions and they can fill up fast! I usually take bookings from your 20-week scan onwards.
Sessions take place in my photography studio at Liverpool's North Docks.
I’m delighted to have joined BANPAS (Baby & Newborn Photography Association) and you will be able to find me on their directory of photographers here. They also have a fabulous Facebook page for pregnant and new parents here.
