Natural Newborn Baby Photography in Surrey & London
Newborn sessions focus on capturing natural photographs of your gorgeous new baby, and your connection with them. No unnatural poses or babies in buckets – just your baby and the most important people in their world.
Newborn sessions usually take place when your baby is 6-14 days old. Since you probably won’t know exactly when your baby will arrive we’ll book your place in my diary, and then confirm a firm date for the session once your baby is born.
All newborn sessions include a planning consultation with me on the telephone or on Skype. I’ll work with you to learn all about your family and how you want to be photographed. We’ll discuss preparing your new baby for the shoot, what to wear and have time to get to know each other. I’ll also send you a digital session guide which includes lots of hints and tips for a great session.
Newborn sessions take place at your home – I’ll bring all the equipment I need to create beautiful photographs of your baby with me. On the day of the session we’ll usually need around 3 -4 hours together to take all the photographs we need, but we’ll work to your baby’s pace and will stop for feeds and cuddles as needed. At the end of the session we’ll also capture some lovely photographs of you as a family.
Nothing can prepare you for how fragile and emotional you feel post birth, Clare completely understood this and made us feel very looked after with her calm and caring approach right from the start. The photos we have of us as a new family with our son at 5 days old are irreplaceable and something we will treasure forever.”
After Your Session
A week or two after your session we’ll meet again for your viewing and design appointment. This is a time for you to view your photographs and choose how you would like to display them.
You’ll have the option to purchase high resolution digital files to print yourself, or to ensure your images last a lifetime you can purchase from a carefully curated range of museum-quality framed prints, fine art albums, and handmade print boxes.
During your viewing appointment I’ll be on hand to mock-up layouts, offer advice on how different photographs work together, and can even show you how photographs would look on the wall of your own home. For me this process is about quality not quantity, and I want to work with you to ensure you have beautiful photographs to enjoy in a way that works for your family.
