I believe in simple, clean, organic, classic portraiture, a style that focuses on your beautiful baby. I don't use a lot of "crazy props". Some of my favourite images have no props at all. Just baby. 100% beautiful on their own. This way, they don't get lost in the image. I do have simple props available at the studio, hats and headbands and lots of textures that I like to use. Newborns often look most beautiful naked, or just with a hat, headband or wrap. Newborns are beautifully perfect...just as they came.
Sessions take place in my studio located just off the A21 in Hurst Green, East Sussex. Sessions are booked Monday to Friday at 11:00 am. Maximum of 5 newborn sessions per week. Please book your session 3-4 months before you are due, to ensure you get a guaranteed session with me. However, if you have not pre booked your spot, please contact me, I may have last minute openings to accommodate you.
Newborn sessions are best done within 5-14 days after your baby is born. At this age they are still sleepy and we can get those tiny curled up poses, and if we are lucky, some dreamy smiles!
After this age, they don't sleep as deeply, often don't like being moved around into different positions and start to lose that "newness" or "curliness" and may become colicky, or develop "baby acne". Older babies (not pre booked) up to 3-4 weeks can be accommodated if I have availability.
I recommend booking just after your 20 week scan. To book I take a £50 deposit and pencil you in for your due date.When baby arrives you send me a message and we then confirm the exact day and time for your newborn photos.
1-2 weeks after your photoshoot I invite you for a viewing of your beautiful baby photos and you select the images you would like and the wall art.
**If you are wanting newborn images that are not a style like those displayed on this site, I suggest finding a photographer that can better represent the particular style you are after**
