Newborn baby photography Leicestershire

There is nothing more precious than a newborn baby. That newness and innocence, coupled with those tiny fingers and toes and the sleepy, milky smiles are such precious memories. I specialises in newborn baby photography to capture images of those very early days,  so that you will always have some beautiful photographs of your newborn baby that you will love for years to come.  

The session fee for a newborn photo shoot at my studio is £85 for the time and talent to photograph your baby.   The session fee includes the photo shoot, use of props such as blankets, hats, wraps etc and also includes a complimentary 10×8 desk print.   If you would like me to visit you at your home the session fee is £150.  Again, this fee is for the session only and includes a complimentary 10×8 desk print.   Further information available by calling 01455 233224 or email:

My approach to newborn photography is to create a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere for your new baby and of course for you too, the new parents.    I know that you will need time to settle your baby and I am patient and will work quietly around you and your routine, with regular breaks for feeding, changing and settling your baby.

My comfortable studio in the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire is equipped to allow your baby to be very settled and relaxed.  Where possible I prefer to use natural light from the giant windows in my space…  and I avoid studio lighting if it’s not necessary.  I have a large selection of props, beautiful blankets and wraps and I will ensure that your new baby is comfortable and happy at all times.  A cappuccino for parents always helps too… 🙂

The ideal time to capture photographs of your newborn baby is at around 5-14 days old.   During this window we can capture their soft skin, the tiny toes and fingers,  those curled up poses and the sleepy smiles and the snuggles with mummy and daddy.

The photography session lasts around 2 hours, sometimes up to 3 hours,  so that we can stop for feeding, changing and cuddles.   The newborn baby photography sessions cannot and should not be rushed.  You can sit back, have a cappuccino and enjoy the experience.  

If you would also like to be photographed with your new baby, please notify me before the photo session as an additional set up will be required for these photographs.  I can also provide you with some ideas on what you should wear.  I would also encourage you to opt for the ‘skin to skin’ style of portraits and we can discuss this option too.  

Expectant mummies often call me to discuss dates for this session, during the latter stages of pregnancy.  Once you have booked your newborn baby photo shoot, I can send you further information to help you prepare for the day and make the most of our time together.
