Bump to Baby

Offering Maternity, newborn and 1 year old packages.

Maternity photos are ideal when you are about 32-34 weeks pregnant if your first pregnancy, may be a little earlier if your 2nd as you may show earlier. Depending on time of year we choose a quiet, private outdoor place to take some lovely natural photos in a calm environment. If you have a toddler or older children, they are welcome along too with your partner. I can put you in touch with a Make up Artist so you are fully pampered and feeling ready to enjoy the whole experience.

Newborn posed 

Newborn babies change every few days, so capturing those early days is something you will treasure forever. As a mum myself I clearly remember those precious early days and ensuring  you’re at ease is always my first priority.
Newborn photography is ideal from 4 days to 2 weeks old.  After 14 days it is much more trickier to achieve the new born ‘posed’ style as they learn to stretch and wriggle and don’t go into such long deep sleeps like they do in the first 14 days. Your baby’s health and safety is paramount, with great care and attention taken. Even being a mum I still took a 2 day training course to ensure handling/ posing is always safe.

It’s recommended to book your newborn session from anytime after the 20 week scan, based on your due date. We then book in one or two provisional dates. Once your bundle of joy is born, please do get in touch as soon as conveniently possible (within a couple of days) and we can schedule in a date that suits.

Your newborn session can take between 3-4 hours, going at your baby’s pace. Top up feeds may be required to keep your baby happy, content… and sleepy! It takes a great deal of patience which I have,  and time.
Once your photos have been uploaded and lovingly edited, you are invited to come and view your images or I can email you an online gallery that is password protected.

Newborn lifestyle 

A more relaxed approach to newborn photography when they are a few weeks old, photographing them in their moses basket, nursery and often lots of photos of you holding them. This session takes about an hour to an hour and a half.

They’re 1!

A baby’s first birthday is very poignant and one of their very first milestones, although I don’t do cake smash photoshoots there are still lots of lovely ways to mark their first birthday, and suggest putting a date in the diary when they are just passed 11 months, that way you can have the gallery back and select images to use in time for their actual 1st birthday.

There are several packages to choose for this, whether you just want a newborn session, or full package for Maternity (bump) through to newborn then their 1st birthday photoshoot.

I travel to you, in your home as this will give a very personal feel, or on occasion I can do them at my home for the newborn posed style. Plenty of tea and coffee will be supplied so you can sit down and relax in comfort.
