The Newborn Experience

Still deciding whether a newborn photoshoot is for you? Then look no further. Here I’ll walk you through everything you can expect in the lead up to and during the big day. Let’s make some memories together!

Capturing the early days

 Your baby will never be this small again so let me help you preserve your memories of those precious early days.  

 

Tiny toes, curled up hands, furry ears and flakey skin, let's document it all. This is the start of a wonderful family adventure and I'd love to be there to help.

Why a home shoot is perfect

There is nothing quite like the comfort of your own home, especially when you've just had a baby. It's a magical way to tell not only your family story, but your baby's first home too. And the bonus is you don't need to rush out of the house on time either!

Before you panic about tidying or cleaning, let me say I do not care if your house is messy. We only need a few well lit spots to create some magic, and if things need moving I will do it. You just need to relax and make yourself a cup of tea that you can drink for once whilst it's hot!

Wondering when to book?

We all know baby's turn up when they want, which makes it difficult to plan a newborn session, right? Well guess what, I have the perfect workaround for that so read on.

 

Newborn photoshoots are booked in with a provisional date 10-14 days after your due date. All you need to do is let me know when they're here and we can finalise the date then. I only take on a few newborn clients per month to ensure I can be flexible, so booking in advance after your 12 week scan is strongly advised.

If your gorgeous little one has already made their way earth-side, please send me a message to check my availability as I always try  to accommodate last minute requests where I can.

How it works

01. Contact me

 

When you're ready to get in touch, send a message via my Contact Me  page.

 

I will reach out to answer any questions you have and work with you to find a date for the photoshoot. If you're booking whilst pregnant this'll be a provisional date that we firm up once your baby is here. 

02. Booking & prep

 

Pre-booking is strongly advised as I only take on a small number of newborn sessions per month to allow for flexibility. All it takes to secure a slot is a deposit of £50. You're then officially booked in!

 

I'll send a comprehensive guide with lots of helpful information to prepare and tips on outfit choices. We will also book a time to have a get to know you call ahead of the day to address any questions or concerns you may have.

03. Getting the goods!

 

You'll get some sneak previews within 48 hours of the photoshoot. The full gallery will then be delivered within 3 weeks.

 

From here you'll be able to pick the ones you want, and if you simply can't decide you'll have the option to purchase additional add-ons including images, prints and photo albums.

Still unsure about the process? Check out my FAQs section which has answers to the most common newborn shoot questions.

Am I the photographer for you?

So now you know what to expect, you just need to work out if I'm the right fit for you. Having newborn photos taken is a big deal. It's so much more than just snapping a picture - you want someone that's going to get you and your family, and preserve your precious newborn bubble.

 

As someone who has been where you are twice, I know exactly how you feel. From the moment you book, I'll go above and beyond to ensure your whole experience is one to remember - for all the right reasons!

 

So if you want an easy, relaxed but fun photoshoot experience that creates memories to last a lifetime, then I'm for you.

“Having our photos taken was such a lovely experience. We were still very much in the newborn bubble and Natasha was so flexible, working around when the baby needed feeding and positions he was happy in. We really enjoyed the whole experience, and we now have some beautiful photos to show for it."
