Five Reasons Why A Natural Newborn Photography Session Is Perfect For Your Family

Hello, and thank you for visiting my website. I’m Clare, an experienced newborn photographer based on the border of Surrey and South West London, near  Hampton Court Palace. 

As you explore the world of newborn photography, I’m know you’ll want to make sure that you choose the best newborn photographer for your family.

My style of newborn photography is natural – I don’t use props or unnatural looking poses and like to keep the focus firmly on your new baby and your family.

Today, I want to share with you five reasons why this natural approach to newborn photography is the perfect choice for your family.

1. A Timeless Aesthetic Means That Your Newborn Portraits Won’t Go Out Of Style

Natural newborn photography focuses on simplicity, capturing your baby in a simple, natural way. Choosing this natural style for your newborn photos ensures that your images remain timeless, never going out of style.

By using neutral colours, and not using props, the focus stays on your baby and the love you share as a family. Classic photographs like this will never go out of fashion and will be cherished by future generations.

2. A Natural Approach To Newborn Photography Puts The Focus On Your Baby

Unlike prop-filled, colourful photographs, natural photography emphasises simplicity and captures the moment authentically.

The emphasis is on your baby, not the props or the staged background that makes it look like your baby is somewhere else.

My photographs capture your baby without any distraction. This minimalistic approach keeps the attention on what matters most – your precious newborn baby.

3. Focussing On Your Baby Means We Can Celebrate All Of The Little Details That Make Them Unique

Close-up shots of tiny fingers, toes, and delicate facial features are an important part of my natural newborn photography – I include them in every newborn session.

I always feel the importance of capturing these details when I look back at pictures of my daughters when they were newborn. They may have been tiny, but I can clearly see the same lips, the same curve of their cheeks, and the same expressions in those tiny faces that we see now. I love how these little features were there from day one!

These detailed images celebrate the unique aspects of your baby, preserving the little features that will become so special to us as they grow older.

4. When We Do Add Props, The Portraits Are Truly Meaningful To You

Occasionally, the families I work with have a special teddy or blanket knitted by a family member that they would like to include in their photographs.

When families bring a special teddy or blanket to the session I’ll incorporate it into a couple of the photographs, just like the picture you see below. This baby’s parents bought a beautiful blanket that had been made for him to include in their session.

This is the one time that I love to use a prop, because it’s actually meaningful to the family involved. The photographs aren’t filled with flowers or props – just a couple of items that matter to you. And this makes these ‘props’ and the resulting photographs all the more special.

5. A Natural, Baby Led Approach Means We Work To Your Baby’s Pace

My natural newborn sessions are designed to be calm and baby-led. My baby-led approach means we go at your baby’s pace, taking breaks for feeding, changing, or soothing as needed.

This creates a calm environment and ensures that both you and your baby feel comfortable, making the experience enjoyable for everyone involved. And when everyone is relaxed it really shows in the photographs; a relaxed environment results in beautiful, genuine photographs.
