Newborn and Baby Portrait Sessions


The type of images we can take very much depends on the age of your baby I have given details below of each stage with examples of the sorts of lovely images you can expect:


Newborn Portraits - 5 to 12 days old


Babies grow and change in a blink of the eye. In order to get lovely, soft, squishy newborn images it's best to contact me before baby arrives so I can make sure I have a space for you somewhere around your due date. Newborns sessions are best done between 5 and 12 days of age while baby is still sleepy, this makes getting them into a "milk coma" for those soft, peaceful images a lot easier.


Examples of Newborn images:

Between 12 days and 10 weeks babies can become a little fractious and it can be difficult to do the sleepy poses. Also their eyes may not track very well yet which means they can be pointing in different directions in the pictures. I think it is best to wait until babies eyes can track before you pay a professional photographer if you missed out on having them done in first 2 weeks. 


Babies 10 weeks to 4 months:


If you want images with baby's eyes open or maybe some lifestyle shots with other children in your own home 10 weeks onwards is usually a good time as babies eyes tend to track and focus well by this stage. Some babies do this sooner than others they are all unique.

Older Babies - 4 Months to Crawling:
​Between 4 months and when baby starts to crawl is a magic time for photography where babies will smile and have great facial expressions that really reflect their personality. If they can push-up while doing tummy time or sit up you will get lovely shots like the ones below.
