Newborn Photography





Newborn photography is my passion and by choosing me to take your new baby’s first pictures I guarantee that not only will you have a beautiful record of all those tiny features but you will also be left with some beautiful works of art to look back on in many years to come. To see some of the pictures I have achieved from my latest sessions please view my Newborn Gallery.

Newborn photography sessions do book up well in advance and to ensure availability you should book in with us any time after your 12 week scan. To achieve those sleepy, peaceful, newborn pictures you should try to book your session no later than the first two weeks of baby’s birth. Between day 7 and 14 is best but as a mum myself I understand that this is not always possible, so will photograph newborns up to 6 weeks old.  A newborn session is very relaxed and will take as much time as required, sometimes up to 4 hours to allow for feeding, changing and lots and lots of settling!

I will schedule your session for 10 days after your due date and then adjust the booking in line with baby’s actual arrival date. We ask that once booked in you contact us as soon as possible after baby has arrived so that we may then confirm your session date. Choosing someone to photograph your baby is an important choice and one not to be taken lightly. You probably have lots of questions which is why we have produced a Newborn Photography Guide – ‘A guide to achieving beautiful pictures of your newborn’. Have a read through it and I am sure it will answer most of your questions and give you a good insight into what’s involved.

We request that you do not bring siblings to a newborn sessions without prior arrangement as they can be very long and small children can get bored. If you would like sibling shots then do get in touch so we can design the session to meet your needs. We are happy for Mummy and Daddy to join in for some pictures and this does not need to be pre-arranged.

We have our very own baby club here at Top Baby Photography. It’s FREE to join and you will receive offers, exclusive discounts, freebies, competitions and much more. To join simply click here.

Finally, for your peace of mind, I am a member of the Baby and Newborn Photography Association – BANPAS, a specialist organisation promoting safe baby and newborn photography. I pride myself on a safety first policy and you can rest assured that your baby will be 100% safe and secure throughout the whole session. I have also written a blog on the subject of newborn photography safe poses which is paramount at any of my shoots.

If you would like to book a session please get in touch with me by emailing or submit a booking request. I can’t wait to help you welcome your baby to the world!
