Photographing newborns is such a joy, especially when they are as good as this little one.  Baby Sophia’s parents brought her for a photo session at a week old which was ideal as she was still sleepy and happy to be moved while staying asleep.

It’s amazing how quickly newborns turn into babies.  After about 2 weeks, depending on birth weight and how early or late they arrived, they rapidly become alert and aware of their surroundings.  This can sometimes affect what is possible during a shoot.

Our newborn shoots can take between one and a half to three hours depending on how settled the baby is and how many feeds are needed.  These things can’t be rushed which is why we block out the whole morning or afternoon for a newborn shoot.  With a comfy sofa, drinks and biscuits a plenty, we have a setting that ensures parents can relax while their newborn is in safe hands, afterall, if the parents are relaxed hopefully the baby will be too.

If you are pregnant and would like some more information about booking to have your newborn photographed please get in touch.  We often take provisional bookings besed on due dates which can be rescheduled if your little one keeps you waiting!
