About Newborn Photography 

Newborn Portraits are ever to special, you have one window to get these portrait, one chance in their lifetime to capture these tiny features as a snap-shoot of moment in both of your lives.

 

Newborn Baby Photography is hugely popular and an ever-growing trend.  Pure beautiful little newborn babies in curled up poses or propped inside baskets, surrounded by cute fluff are images that make the most hardened person go a wee bit mushy. ​

 

As a newborn photographer, I will hold, soothe and pose your baby gently and safely.  I am not only a mother myself (this alone isn't a qualification for posing newborns!) but I am trained by some of the best trainers in the country in newborn art, to ensure your little ones are moved around safely, keeping a close watch on their breathing, colouring, and temperature.

 

I am often called a baby whisperer.

It's not magic however it's training!

HOW IS MY BABY POSED?

THAT'S A WRAP

Most newborn sessions start with baby wrapped! This is because it is the fastest method for settling a baby and whilst they are settling, studio time can be used to capture ever so cute portraits of your baby.  It is the simplest method of posing baby in props and colour changing to give you variety for your finished gallery. As baby settles, I move into unwrapping them and starting to bring out thier treasured little features and then onto the newborn flow posing. When a newborn baby is wrapped it acts like muscle memory for them, they are limited in how easily their arms and legs can flail stopping baby from the startle reflex, for them its is just like being back in mummy's womb. Safe, warm and secure.

NEWBORN FLOW POSING

To take all these beautiful portraits of your newborn baby, your baby ideally needs to be between 5-14 days old so this is where booking ahead is a must. I only take on 10 bookings a month in the studio to allow for diary movement should your baby arrive early or late. If your baby has already arrived please do still enquire. I may be able to fit you in if my week had already been set.

I am often called a baby whisperer, but I like to believe babies have a sense of security with me and that is why they relax, this also enables parents to relax. I am always honoured to be chosen to capture your images and pour my heart and soul into each session, my clients often comment they can see I love what I do.

Flow posing is posing baby when they are asleep in various positions starting with one pose and moving into the next pose with as minimal movements to baby as possible so as not to disturb them, there 8-10 poses that are gently moved through.

 

99% of these poses are done on a newborn purpose made posing station, where the beans underneath are manipulated and moved to help create little craters to gently support baby. Additional 'beans' basically mini moon shape bean bags are also used.
