Newborn Portraits

 

Photographing your little one during their first few days on Earth is one of my favourite aspects of my family photography business.

Newborn photos are a perfect way to commemorate your child’s birth and, as they grow so fast within their first year, your photographs will be the only thing left to remind you of those tiny toes once they’re using them to run around on!

 

Note: It is vital to book a newborn photography session when your baby is between 0-12 days old as this is when they’ll be more flexible and less likely to wake up (however, lifestyle shoots with baby and parents can also be done when baby is a little older).

First and foremost I understand this will be a hectic time for you and your family, so I want to make the session as relaxing as possible for you.

I am fully insured, DBS approved and have had training in posing newborns so you can trust I’ll be taking all the care in the world when it comes to your baby. So sit back, relax, help yourself to the studio snacks and beverages, enjoy the soothing sounds of the meditation music and lavender air diffuser, and even take a nap if you like (you wouldn't be the first!)

£50 Session fee is not included in the package prices. This fee covers studio session time with an experienced photographer and personalised set-up. This is to be paid upon booking.

Image packages start from £199.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book my session?

You can book your newborn session with me any time between your 12-week and 20-week scans. My diary does get full quite quickly and I only book in a certain amount of newborn sessions per month so to avoid disappointment I'd say book your session in with a deposit as soon as you can (this guarentees your session space once baby arrives). I hate to turn people away! That being said, due to babies sometimes arriving a bit later or earlier than planned I may have a session space available last minute here and there, so if your baby has been born already send me a message and I'll see if I have any space whatsoever.

What can I expect from my session?

My full newborn sessions take between 2-4 hours (plenty of time to allow for soothing, changing, feeding etc). My studio is comfortable, private, and nice and toasty! It is best to dress in layers as the room is perfect for baby, but can get a bit warm for us adults sometimes. Sit back, relax, enjoy the sounds of mediation and my lavender air diffuser. There are plenty of snacks, colouring books and pencils, bottles of water, tea, coffee, and hot chocolate to help yourself too. Put your feet up and fall asleep if you like (you won't be the first)!

How do I prepare for my session?

If breastfeeding, it is best to avoid spicy/acidic/gassy food for 24 hours before the session. Also, try to keep baby awake for as long as possible before the session and ready for a big feed just before you leave the house or as your arrive at the studio. Please dress baby in something easy to remove and keep their nappy as loose as possible to avoid marks on their skin. 

What do I need to bring?

Apart from snacks and your regular changing bag, you do not need to bring anything else! I will provide all of the props, wraps, outfits, hats, and headbands. I have lots of colours and styles to choose from which you can view and choose from my studio walls. If you'd like to include any personal items, bring them along and I'll try to incorporate them into the session.

Can I take photos?

Your partner is more than welcome to take a few behind the scenes shots (as I love to see and post those on my social media too!), but make sure those BTS photos do not impede on the shots I am being paid to take for you.

Can my partner/children/ pets be included in the photos?

Yes absolutely! I love to include partners and siblings in my sessions, as they can provide a great variety of images for your final gallery. Please let me know beforehand whether you'd like to incorporate others into your newborn session.

What should we wear for our photos?

For other children and partners it is always best to stick to neutral colours without any big patterns, prints or logos. When we are discussing your session I can point you in the direction of my Pinterest which has plenty of inspiration for your family outfits.

How do I choose my photos?

After your session I will choose the best 20-25 images with some basic editing to the colours and background etc, but no full skin retouching yet. Around a week after your session I will invite you back into the studio to look through your final images and discuss which 5, 10, or 20 you'd like to purchase.

How long does it take for my photos to be ready?

Once you have returned to the studio to choose your favourite images, your final edits should take around 1-2 weeks. During this time I will be retouching baby's hair, skin and backgrounds by hand myself to make sure everything is perfect for your final images. I will also order your prints, which take up to 2 working days, and your wall art which takes up to 10 working days to be delivered.

"I am so happy with the pictures taken from Paige of my baby girl. Paige was amazing with the baby, she has a natural touch (I was even hoping she offered a child minding service she was that good). I done a lot of research on all different photographers before the baby was born, because after all the baby is only new born once in her life so the picture had to be perfect, and I am so glad that I went with Paige. The pictures make me so proud to be a Mum of the most beautiful baby and I will cherish them forever. I have recommend Paige to all of my family and friends, and will definitely be booking more photos for when the baby is a bit older."
