To guarantee getting booked in for your newborn photoshoot at our studio in Washington, it is best to book before the birth of your baby so we can schedule in a time frame around your due date, this ensures I don’t overbook around that time. We all know they can arrive at any time though so just drop me a line if baby comes early and just keep me posted if you go over your due date.

If little one has already arrived and you have just decided to invest in a newborn photoshoot then don’t hesitate to get in touch so I can check my availability.

The best time to capture sleepy newborn photos are within their first 2 weeks when they are more likely to curl up into womb like poses and stay asleep longer. I do however take newborn bookings up to 12 weeks old, they will be a lot more alert and awake during the session, however we can still create some beautiful images and they are still small enough to fit into baby props available at the studio.

Bring your baby along for their Newborn Photoshoot at our Washington studio in Columbia South Tyneside, which is equipped with props, back drops and soft lighting.

The studio provides a safe environment for your baby and will be nice and warm for you arriving with your new little bundle to ensure they are kept comfortable snug & warm during the session.

Newborn Photography – Washington studio

I schedule newborn sessions for approximately 2-3 hours to ensure there is plenty of time for feeding, settling and posing your baby between each set up. Within the first 2 hours, I generally have a good variety of images for your gallery, however we may need up to 3 hours if your baby takes a little longer to settle or you are bringing siblings to take part in the photoshoot. I book newborn sessions in on weekdays for 11am to give you time in the morning to prep and travel to the studio.

If you live within a 30 minute drive from the studio I would recommend feeding your baby just before you leave the house as generally a nice full belly and car ride will help them become nice and sleepy when they arrive…. bliss for them… calm for us. Feel free to top them up before we begin or any time during the session if they become unsettled.

The studio is fully equipped with baby props, hats, hairbands, wraps and accessories so there is no requirement to bring anything like that along.

Our consultation prior to the photoshoot will help prep for the session, discussing preferred props, colours & any additional requests you may have so I can have everything set up ready for you coming into the studio.

Its advisable for everyone to dress in layers so you don’t get too hot as the studio will be warm for the comfort of your baby.

Do bring along a blanket to keep your baby snug between set ups. If you are wanting shots of your little one unclothed, bring a couple of towels to protect your clothing for when you are holding/feeding your baby with no nappy on, this will save disturbing them too much by placing a nappy on and off.

Have a think if there is anything sentimental or even a small teddy you would like to bring along to incorporate into the photos.

We can discuss everything in more detail over the phone prior to your photoshoot.

Absolutely! I always recommend having your other children involved in the photoshoot to capture this very special time in your lives that you will all enjoy looking back on for many years.

The photoshoot will be scheduled in for up to 3 hours so we have plenty of time to create those extra images of your family, especially with siblings under 3 who may take a while to come round to taking part in the photoshoot.

Your images will be ready to view within 3 weeks from your photoshoot. I will contact you within 2 weeks to arrange your preview session to either view at the studio, or we can link up via a zoom call.

During your ordering session you can then decide how many images you want from the collection options & I will show you how some of your images will look on the range of products available.

Our most popular package is collection 3 as this includes all digital images on USB with a slideshow and prints in a keepsake memory box plus a product from the Wall Art range to hang pride of place in your home, so do have a think about where you would like to have a beautiful image of your newborn in your home, I can put together some examples ready for your ordering session.

“We were thrilled with our newborn photoshoot from 2015 of my baby boy, and decided to go back again this year after having my baby girl. Both photo shoots were incredible and the photos are amazing. Zoe was so great with both of my kids. Our first photo shoot was near Christmas and she got plenty of Christmas props for us and everyone comments on how fab all the photos look! I couldn’t recommend her enough she has given us such lovely photographs I will treasure forever. Thanks again”
