Guildford Newborn Photographer

Late last year I spent a lovely morning photographing this gorgeous newborn baby boy at my studio, which is around a 30 minute drive from Guildford in Surrey.

He visited the studio with his parents when he was 14 days old, and this was perfect timing for a newborn photo shoot

In the first two weeks after babies are born they are typically very sleepy and love to be curled up, tucking their legs into the positions they were in inside the womb. This makes these early weeks ideal for posed newborn photography – babies are comfortable, sleepy and relaxed enough for the different poses.

I know that the first weeks with a new baby can be a bit of a whirlwind, getting to know your new baby and settling into your new life together. So my aim is to keep everything relaxed and easy for parents. 

My studio is designed to be a little oasis of calm, and whilst I photographed this gorgeous baby boy his parents could sit back, relax, and watch the session with a cup of coffee and some snacks.

I started the session with photographs of their new baby on his own. As the session progressed, I gently moved, wrapped and unwrapped him to capture a large variety of different photographs.

My style of newborn photography is very natural – no fancy outfits, or putting babies into baskets or flower pots. However, it can be really lovely to include special, sentimental items in photographs when a family brings them along.

This family had a beautiful blanket that had been made by their baby’s grandmother, and a special bunny. I loved working them into a couple of photographs at the end of the session. I really like the idea that as he grows, he will be able to see that his special bunny was almost as big as he was, and now he is much bigger!

At the very end of the session we captured some family photographs. Some of each parent with their baby on their own, and some of the whole family together.
