Welcoming your newborn baby into the world is one of the most magical and emotional times in your life. Newborn photography truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity; your new baby is only so small for a very short time. I love to capture all of these feelings from my beautiful studio in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire, and present them in a stunning range of wall art and images for you to cherish and hold onto forever. Photography really is amazing, it has the power to help you relive these magical moments and bring back all the emotions from particular moments in our lives.
Every newborn photoshoot is completely bespoke for each client. With a wide variety of colour palettes to choose from, I aim to produce creative, yet timeless portrait images using colours and textures that compliment your baby's skin tones and your living space. We will plan your photoshoot session together in a complimentary consultation appointment, before the day, so that you can be fully prepared and safe in the knowledge that your images will be more than you imagined to display in your home.
The ideal time to photograph newborn babies is when they are between 4 and 21 days fresh. Older babies (up to 8 weeks) may be booked in for my Signature Newborn Experience too, but they may not be as flexible and ‘curly’ as true newborns, so bear this in mind. If your baby is already older than 8 weeks, don’t worry! We can still create some incredibly precious portrait images, so please do contact me to check availability and discuss the options.
Most of my clients book their newborn photography experience with me when they reach their 20 week scan. As we all know, babies are notoriously choosy about when they finally make their appearance into the world! To allow for this, I can only accept 12 newborn bookings each month in my St.Ives studio, so it is important to secure your session as soon as you can.
Upon booking, I will pencil your newborn photoshoot into my diary 7-10 days after your due date, but we won't make a firm date until you have contacted me to say your baby has arrived. If your baby is already here, I may have availability in my diary if scheduled babies have arrived early or have decided to stay put just a little bit longer - so again, please do enquire. I look forward to welcoming you at my beautiful Quayside photography studio in St Ives, Cambridegshire!
This session is best suited for babies between 5 days and 3 weeks old.
You will be invited back to my studio one to two weeks after your session to view your final gallery of approximately 20 beautifully enhanced images. It’s at this point when you may decide which collection you may want to purchase.
The photography session itself is entirely free. At no time are you are under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don’t wish to, in that case the photoshoot will have cost you nothing. Should you, however, wish to order just a few images or prints rather than a full collection; due to the time involved in processing, ordering and printing etc. or creating the multiple versions of files for a USB there is a minimum order fee of £499.
A £99 non refundable retainer is required in order to secure your booking. This will be deducted from your final order.
