Your baby & you deserve the very best right from the props & accessories I use, to your experience & service I provide, to your enjoyment of viewing & choosing your images & choice of quality products. After all you are only going to have your newborn photographed once at this stage so I aim to provide only the very best for baby & you!

This is not just a photoshoot, but an exciting & enjoyable experience that you will only ever do once with your new baby.

So what's first?

Use the book an appointment button to find out if I have availability for your due date, once this is confirmed a £49 booking fee is all that is required to secure your due date in my diary. This booking fee is then deducted from your order. A pre-session
consultation is the next step, this can be in person or a quick call or via email which ever you prefer. This is so I can get to know you, know more of what I can create for you, what is important to you. Would you like a beautiful new family photo as well? are there any older siblings you would like involved? I want to ensure you have not just a photograph but authentic, beautiful images with meaning to you.
The images I will create for you will be genuine images, created in my studio, by me. I don't use purchased digital backgrounds that have been made by somebody else, so you will always have beautiful unique images to you. Every image that is taken & created is created for you by me.

So what can I expect?

Your newborn session is a wonderful experience, the studio(Baby Maldives) is a cosy calm environment for you to sit back, relax and watch your beautiful new baby being posed in beautiful props and super soft blankets and furs.

I use high-quality props, furs and blankets so your baby is always super comfortable. I have most of my props commissioned so I can offer you something different and unique.

The ideal time to photograph your newborn is between 5-10 days, so it is advisable to book your due date in after your 20-week scan to guarantee a place in my diary.

On booking you will receive a welcome guide, this will tell you a little more about what to expect as well as contain your pre-session prep. It does contain your colour palettes, if you wish to choose or you can just leave it with me to work my magic.

I will always include at least one signature brown Image and if discussed in your initial consultation a one of a kind personal piece with meaning to you.

Your session is carefully planned out before your session, ready for your new arrival.

My newborn sessions generally last around 2 hours but that does all depend on bubs, we will stop for feeds, cuddles.

I often have beautiful accessories commissioned specifically for me, which are designed to suit my style and work with my ideas. This is to ensure that I can give my clients that extra special touch, unique items that are not run of the mill and that every photographer is using.

Your baby's safety is paramount to me, and for you as parents I want you to feel confident and comfortable with me handling your new baby. Which is why I hold a NEWBORN SAFETY CERTIFICATION. (please see below)

If your still not sure, why not book a studio visit? You can meet me, ask any questions you may have, you can even choose your props & colour scheme in person with me & co create any one of a kind pieces you might like!

So what happens after my session?

I will go through your beautiful images & select around 15-20 & edit each one in my unique style. Each image is edited to match each set up perfectly & you can expect to see some in colour and b&w. I have my own unique editing style that enhances your images beautifully.

You will be invited back to the studio usually around 2-3 weeks later to view & order your images. This is a super exciting time as well as quite often being very emotional. I want you to enjoy viewing your images which is why I invite you back to see how beautiful your images are. You are also able to see and feel all of your product options, all of which now come with a digital copy too, so you really do have the absolute best of both. It is my job to honestly help you choose the right products for you.

I believe in the power of print which is why I offer my clients tangible products not just digitals. Quality prints & products that will last and be enjoyed for many years to come.

Beyond beautiful Images of your new arrival!

Newborn Safety

Newborn photography is a beautiful art and I would encourage anyone who is expecting to have your newborn
photographed, but did you know that the newborn photography industry is not regulated. What this means is that anybody with a camera can claim
to be a newborn specialist. When you come to me I want you as parents to feel confident in me that I know exactly how to handle and safely pose your new little baby. I know how to produce the best possible images of your baby with beautiful props, textures and lighting. You really do get one chance to get your newborn photographer right as you wont be able to do it again if you are not happy with your images, it is even more important than choosing a wedding photographer, because like weddings you get one chance, but more importantly you are handing your baby over to someone you have likely never met and it is important that you can trust that person which is why I Hold My newborn Safety Certification to give you peace of mind that I am Highly trained and safety is paramount.

A photograph is not a photograph until it is printed
