Female photographer and nursery nurse based in Bexleyheath

Newborn & Newborn Plus Photography

Newborn photography is from birth up to three weeks, for best results your baby would ideally be under two weeks old. This is due to being able to mould the baby into adorable poses and to make the best use of the deep milk sleep stage.

Newborn Plus photography is from four to ten weeks. During this time baby is more alert and photography poses will be different due to passing the milk sleep stage and the baby is unlikely to be able to be moulded into some poses. However, there are still many ways to pose a baby of this age and there are still several props I can use.  

Every baby is unique and I understand that every parent prefers different styles of photography. With years of photography experience and expertise I am able to adapt to each baby and every requirement. As a mother myself and having been a nursery nurse for over ten years I understand how precious your baby is and will ensure your little one is safe and comfortable at all times.

Each session is led by your baby, nothing is rushed and we will stop for feeds, nappy changes and comfort when your baby needs. It is helpful for your baby to have a full tummy on arrival but I am aware that this is not always possible. Much of the session will be soothing your baby and making sure they are comfortable in their poses. I will handle the baby most of the time but will need assistance during photographing with props to ensure your baby is safe at all times.

I have many unique props, lovely outfits, hats and hair accessories for you to choose from. A week prior to your appointment, please take a look at my gallery and notify me of the props, outfits and style of photography you like. 

What do you need to bring?

  • Lots of nappies and wipes
  • Extra milk to soothe baby
  • Oils or creams for baby's skin
  • A soother or white noise
  • A blanket and muslin square
  • Any outfits you want the baby photographed in (please do not dress the baby in this on arrival)
  • Outfits for yourself and siblings to be photographed in (please do not dress in these outfits)
  • Any sentimental items such as, wedding rings, a cuddly toy etc.
  • Slippers or socks (the studio is a shoe free zone)
  • I have a selection of toys and books in the studio, but if you are bringing a sibling please feel free to bring something to keep them entertained
  • You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks

This experience will stay with you always and you will have special memories to look back on forever!
