Newborn / Baby Photos
Newborns are really just newborns for a short period of time. This is why a newborn session is best done when your baby is in-between 5 -14 days old. You’ll be amazed at how quickly they change and how quickly they’ll lose the ‘newborn-look’.
I’m a mom myself and am so grateful to have newborn photos of my kids. It’s easy to forget all the little details of just how small they were in those first few days.
Of course, your baby can also be photographed later than 2 weeks old. These photos are different in style as your baby will be more alert and maybe even on the move!

FAQs for newborns/babies
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions for my newborn photography package.
What exactly is a newborn / baby ‘lifestyle’ session?
This style of newborn / baby photography is a more natural, un-posed approach. The photos are taken in the comfort of your own home where you and your baby are most comfortable. My aim is to document some of these early moments of not only the newest member of your family but also of you together as a family.
Where do newborn / baby shoots take place?
These shoots usually take place in your home but outside shots can also be included such as in your garden or a nearby park etc.
Do we need to prepare anything before the shoot?
As I come to your home, there’s not a lot you need to prepare. Once you’ve booked your session, I will send you some more information with a few helpful tips.
How early should I book in for my newborn / baby lifestyle shoot?
The sooner the better! I can only take on a limited number of shoots per month so don’t leave it too late.
How do we book in an exact date for our newborn shoot when we don’t know exactly when our baby will arrive?
Just let me know your due date and I will pencil this in to my calendar. As soon as your baby arrives, get in touch with me and we’ll work out a date for your shoot.
How old should our baby be for their newborn shoot?
Newborn shoots are typically done when your baby is in-between 5 -14 days old. They are still very sleepy and so small. Of course, we can schedule baby lifestyle shoots after these first 2 weeks but these photos often have a different feel to them, as baby is more alert.
How long will the shoot take?
This depends on each baby but I usually allow for 1,5 – 2 hours. Sometimes we need a little bit of extra time to stop when your baby needs to be changed, fed or just cuddled! This is completely normal and we won’t be rushed.
How long does it take until we receive our photos?
You will usually be able to download your images within 3-4 weeks. Depending on my current workload, this estimated time frame could be much shorter. I always try to get them to you asap but also don’t want to rush the editing process. I will post a couple of sneak-preview photos on social media for you, just to make the wait a little easier.
What if I need to cancel my shoot?
Your non-refundable booking fee is non-refundable. However, if for unseen circumstances you need to cancel and aren’t able to reschedule your shoot, then you may use this as credit towards a baby lifestyle session or a family session at a later stage.
How do I book my session with you?
Contact me ASAP with your due date and I’ll let you know my availability. To secure your session I will need a signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee.
