As a newborn photographer Tunbridge Wells, I completely understand that taking time out for yourself and your newborn baby may be the last thing on your mind in the first few days and weeks after giving birth.  That’s why I pride myself in making your newborn photoshoot as seamless and comfortable as you deserve.  Your newborn will change so quickly in the first few weeks; let me capture those tiny toes and that button nose.  That fine hair that graces your baby’s back and shoulders, your baby naturally curled up in the fetal position, still adjusting to not being in mummy’s tummy anymore.  Such a precious time for you and your family. Your world.

I recommend your photoshoot to take place when your baby is between 5-10 days old.  My styling of the baby is very organic, using light and neutral tones in my props including blankets and hats.  The photoshoot is very much baby led and need to allow up to 3 hours for the shoot, so we can take a break for feeds, changes or just time out for a cuppa if needed.

My studio photoshoots take place in my home studio.  It really is a “home from home” experience.   You’ll be comfortable and relaxed.  I have everything you’ll need for your time at your photoshoot.  From baby changing facilities to new mummy toiletries.  There will be drinks and light bites available and bottle making facilities if you need.

If a lifestyle shoot is more your style, then I will travel to your home and take very natural, reportage images of your baby and can include shots of siblings and parents.  I usually use the lounge, nursery and master bedroom.  Please don’t worry if you feel your house isn’t tidy enough or isn’t “photograph ready”.  It really doesn’t matter.  That’s part of the beauty of shooting lifestyle photographs.  Its all about your world, your family, your life as it is now.  With baby clutter everywhere – this is life.  I think its really endearing when you look back at your photographs and reminisce on the beautiful chaos of having a new baby and what a whirl wind experience it is!

We all know our little ones will make an appearance when they are good and ready – so with this is mind I am completely flexible with your booking.  I recommend you book your photoshoot just after your 20 weeks scan.  I only have a limited of sessions booked per month, so please do contact me as soon as you can to see if your due date is available.  All I require to secure your booking is payment of the session fee as a deposit.  Once your baby has arrived,  let me know and we can go ahead and confirm a date and time.

Once your session has been booked, I’ll send you a confirmation email which will include details of the session and information on what to expect from the session and how best to prepare.  It will also include information on when you will receive your images and next steps.   Further to this I am always happy to schedule a call to chat things through if you prefer.

 

 

Baby Photos

      

Baby Photographer Tunbridge Wells – Capturing your baby around the age of 6 months old is a wonderful opportunity to really see their little personalities shine.  They really come into their own, fascinated by the world around them.  Confidently sitting unaided, showing off their gorgeous baby rolls and all their squidgy-ness!

I use beautiful white and grey backgrounds, props and styling.  I have a number of fun toys to occupy your little one, to keep them smiling and relaxed.
