Newborn photography is usually done before your baby is two weeks old, and those first two weeks will go in the blink of an eye.
There is no bigger moment in life than when you have your first baby! A brand new baby is a miracle, and that tiny little miracle will change every day and those tiny little features will vanish forever, within a few weeks – it sounds a bit dramatic, but it really is true!
It is exciting, emotional and overwhelming rolled into one, and there is simply no way for us to remember those first days.
I am privileged to be a specialist newborn photographer in Market Harborough, and be a part of this precious time. I promise you will never regret having these pictures done! There is no time-limit on my newborn sessions, everything is on baby's terms, with lots of time for feeding and cuddling.

Newborn photography - it is more than just a sweet picture
Those first few weeks with a new baby go by in a blur, and for many women it is hard to keep up. Emotions are all over the place, you might be sleep deprived and life has just been turned up-side down. There is simply no way for us to keep hold of this time in life, and it just slips away before we even manage to catch up. Being able to refer back to gorgeous images of you with your newborn can make a big difference later in life, and as your baby grows up he/she will love to see those pictures as well. Mum’s often don’t feel like being in the picture, but I have not yet had a mum who didn’t like the pictures afterwards – there is something really special about a mum and her newborn and I always include these images in my sessions... and dads and siblings of course.

Photographing newborns is very different from photographing anything else! First of all there are lots of health and safety aspects to consider! Secondly my studio is specifically set up for newborns; this means it is warm and cosy, there is a broad variety of beautiful props for you to include in your pictures, and there is no time limit on a newborn session. Everything is on baby’s terms, so I allow time for feeding, changing and lots of cuddles. My studio is light and bright and sessions are very calm – I know what a stressful time this can be for new (tired) parents, but this the perfect chance to just sit back, have a biscuit, and watch your new baby, take it all in.
When is best for photographing a newborn baby?Newborn
The first 10 days are hands down the most magical time, to capture something really unique, to keep forever. In these first few days of life your little one looks totally newborn, with perfect little features, but unfortunately they change and disappear in a flicker of a moment. It is like sand through your fingers, so please don't miss this moment! I genuinely believe you will treasure your newborn images forever, and marvel over them every time you see them, for the rest of your life, and for generations to come. This really is not a stage to miss!
It is important to book your session before your baby is born to ensure availability. I ever only book one newborn per day to ensure enough time and to dedicate you my full attention. I also work as maternity photographer, please ask about discount for booking your pregnancy and newborn shoot together.
