Beautiful Newborn Portraiture takes time and patience...
Enjoy the experience, relax and know that your precious little one is in safe hands and reflect on this wonderful moment as you become a family or welcome a tiny new baby to your existing family. Charlie has many years of experience photographing Newborn Babies, while Michelle is highly trained in the art of Newborn Safety and Posing.
The best time to photograph your new baby is between 6-14 days after their birth, while they still curl up like they did in the womb and will settle to sleep well too. For more information click this question. Remember that your partner will most likely have some paternity leave, our midweek sessions are fabulous for Newborn Photoshoots, leaving your weekends free for family and friends to meet your new baby.
Is there a discount for my bump shoot, if I book my newborn photoshoot?
Who can I share my Newborn Photography Session with?
We encourage you to share this wonderful celebration, as a couple with your newborn or include immediate family for intimate portraits of baby in their first days with you. Extended family group photo sessions can be more unsettling for your tiny baby and we would recommend booking a Family Portrait Session when they are a little older.
What should I wear to my Newborn Photoshoot?
Your newborn photographs will look amazing if you stick to plain colours, usually neutrals, naturals and pastels are best. We want your new family group to be the focus of your portraits, we can help and advise you. We have fabric wraps that we can wrap around Mum for stunning intimate newborn portraits. Dad's can choose to have skin to skin newborn photos too.
How long will my Newborn Photoshoot be?
Your newborn photo shoot will be completely tailored to meet your baby's needs, we will pause for feeding, changing and settling time when needed. This is why our newborn portrait sessions are allocated up to 4 hours of our time.
Do you have any Packages?
Yes, we have three packages, our BUMP to BABY Package - which includes a Pregnancy/Bump photo shoot at around 32 to 36 weeks and a Newborn photo shoot at about 6 to 14 days old.
