Having a new baby is daunting but wonderful. There are so many highs and lows and being able to capture these precious moments for you is a honour.. Newborn photo shoots are my first love, its how I fell into photography and I will never take for granted the privilege I feel when I’m invited into your home to photograph your new baby. Please take a look around if you have any questions about a newborn photography session at home then please do drop me an message via my contact form        .

If you ask me what it is that I  love most about my job, up there in my top three answers ( It’s impossible to narrow it down any more than that) would easily be photographing a newborn baby at home. There is nothing like the magic of joy filled photographs at this once-in-a-lifetime event. 

Why are home newborn photography instead of a studio? There is  no question for me that you should opt to photograph your baby at home. Just from a practical perspective that you have everything you need at home. But from the perspective of creating memories. At home you your are surrounded by every think you hold so dear. Everything in your home has been either bought by you, or maybe gifted by a someone you love. Your home is fulled to the brim with things that are at the the heart of who you are – travel mementos, photos, and if you are anything like me plants galore( I am a self confessed plant lady). By choosing to have your newborn photography at home its going to help  to create the authentic, beautiful  heirlooms. Pieces of art that will show your children their first home and give them a window to step back in time over and over again.

Older siblings at your newborn photography session? No problem, the more the merrier!

If you have older children they are often the most comfortable and relaxed in their own home. Having familiar things around them will help to create a calm envorment and set us on the best start. Your home has  places that they can escape when need a break from the camera.  Knowing their toys are around them, and let’s be honest  plenty of snacks in the cupboard is always going to be a winner. 

I want to be your children’s friend, I will lay on the floor and play trains I will learn the words to the iCarly soundtrack or reel off the names of my favourite paw patrol characters. 

For your children i want to make sure we are friends first and photographer and subject second. The moment that they think that they’re not in control is the moment that we lose control. Will walk a fine tight rope ensuring that they are happy and present in all your newborn photographs. 

Despite many of my images looking candid but perfectly timed , fear not! During the whole of you Newborn Photography session you’ll be guided by me. As we move through the session i’ll give you some direction and prompts to help capture those all-important relaxed and authentic shots. I know well how daunting it can feel if you aren’t sure what to don when there’s a camera pointing in your face. My years of experience have made me an expert in relaxing and painting families in the most candid and authentic way. I am even there. For me newborn photography is more than just taking photos of you and your baby. It about your whole family unit. By making sure I prioritise creating a connection and mutual respect with your older children it will ensure you get those all important images of your children together.
