Fine Art Newborn Photography In Nottingham

Newborn Photography In Nottingham & Derby

I enjoy all the excitement of those tiny new member of the family, what better way to remember the development of your little ones with baby photos. I have a passion in capturing baby pics with out baby photo shoot services in a fine art & creative style.

For the best results from your newborn photography photo shoot, it's best to have your little ones photographed within 14 days after giving birth to get the best cute baby pics, this is because after 14 days, babies start to lose their newborn curl and tend not to be so sleepy which we need them to be for those composite style fine art portrait posing shots.

My newborn photshoots are taken at comfort of our home studio or we can consider coming to you at an additional fee. Shoots in your home would require space made for a studio setups, we can not assist with moving furniture due to insurance restrictions.

I always take my time with newborns, being gentle and relaxed. I never force little ones into a pose, The most important thing for me is to keep them safe. No portrait is worth putting a baby at risk in any way.  

Newborn portrait sessions can typically take 2-3 hours to complete, enabling plenty of time for feeding, changing and cuddles. Babies are best photographed on a nice full tummy, so shortly before your baby photo shoot, please feed your baby. If you can, try to keep your baby awake for 1-2 hours prior to starting the shoot. This will help them sleep more deeply so we can pose them for shots without waking them.

I've got a fabulous selection of props: handmade headbands, hats, blankets, baskets etc. If you'd like me to use specific props for example in your favourite colours or styles. Then please discuss with me during your consultation/when booking. This will give you more time to get anything you need or us to sort out anything we need before the shoot.

This package is for newborn portraits and baby photos up to 1 year old, after this age you will need to review our Child portrait packages. or if you want group sessions for you all in the photos, then I’d suggest checking out our Families & Groups services.

I am excited to work with you and your new bundles of joy soon!
