After you’ve finally given birth and are getting settled at home, the last thing you will feel like doing is packing all your stuff together for a trip out.  Having a photo session in your home will give you gorgeous pictures of your newborn baby without you having to do very much at all.

Your natural newborn session with be laid-back, fuss-free and stress-free.  

I don’t use props and won’t do any curly poses with your baby.  Nor put you and your partner in any awkward positions or boss you around.  Instead we’ll simply go with the flow.  

All you will need to do is relax and snuggle up with your baby. If they need settling, changing, feeding (they will), it can all be captured.  I’ll be on hand to give you some gentle direction to help you get the most out of your session.


Questions often asked

Won’t it feel odd having a stranger in my home?  You would think so but it really won’t.  We’ll have a chat before your shoot by phone so we won’t be strangers.  You will be totally focussed on this little bundle you are holding that after 5 minutes of me being there it will feel like you have a friend round for a cuppa (who just happens to be taking photographs.)  

What if my baby is unsettled?  Because the shoot is around 2 hours there will be plenty of time to settle your baby.  If your baby is permanently attached to your breast we’ll work around that too.

I don’t think my house will be big enough or modern enough for a home shoot.  Many people worry about this beforehand but it’s never an issue once they receive their pictures.  Your shoot is not focussed on your home but on your baby and family.  I’m able to create beautiful images in the smallest of rooms because I know how to use light to get the best images possible.


My own newborn is now  18 years old – I didn’t see that coming.  It felt like one minute I was stroking her downy shoulders, the next she was walking and then suddenly I was answering questions about maths homework.  When you bring your baby home, each day you’ll feel like the day before was a blur – and soon you’ll remember much of that time as a blur.  It’s such a unique and short-lived experience and I will make sure you have all the details from this time you’ll wish to have.
