Newborns

After having my daughter Grace, I soon realised how quickly that newborn phase passed in the blink of an eye, which is why I love the opportunity to capture those tiny details and precious moments we treasure as parents. The perfect investment for your new little bundle having a lovely keepsake of photos that will be treasured for generations.

I am a fully trained newborn photographer and a member of the Banpas society which promotes newborn safety and training.

To guarantee your photo session, it is best to book before the birth of your baby so we can schedule in a time frame around your due date, this ensure’s I don’t overbook at that time.

If little one has already arrived and you have just decided to invest in professional photography for your newborn baby then don’t hesitate to drop me a line 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 6 weeks old, they will be alot more alert and awake during the session, however we can still create some beautiful images of your baby.

The photo session can take place either at your home or at the studio in North Shields which is equipped with props and back drops for babies from newborn up to 1 year old for each stage of your babies 1st year milestone’s.

Price is the same for a home photoshoot within a 10 mile radius of NE29, however if you do live further afield then a small additional charge can be added to cover time and mileage.

I schedule newborn sessions for approximately 2 hours to ensure plenty of time to feed, settle and pose your baby between each set up and that you have a variety of images for your newborn gallery

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.

Do bring along a blanket to keep your baby snug between set ups. If you are wanting naked shots of your little one bring a couple of towels to protect your clothing for when you are holding/feeding your baby to save disturbing them too much by placing a nappy on and off.

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.

Also nice to bring along a small teddy, or if you have anything sentimental you wish to incorporate into the photos.

Absolutely! I would recommend little one’s under 3 years old being brought along near end of the photoshoot as younger siblings do tend to get restless pretty quick in this environment due to it being kept warm and calm for the comfort of your baby, great if someone can bring them along around 45 minutes before end of the photo session.

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 where I can come out to your home and play the photos via a slideshow on your TV.

I have a selection of beautiful wall products which I can bring along for you to see how they would look in your home.

“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”
