There is no other feeling in this World like when your much anticipated baby makes his appearance into this world and into your heart.

My aim on every single Newborn photo-shoot is to create a set of stunning photos and memories for my clients to cherish for a lifetime.

When is the best time to photograph my baby and when do I book?

The best time to Photograph a Newborn baby is the usually between 5-14 days. Most babies are very sleepy at this very early age and so easier to "pose". Also they really do not keep that newborn look for a long time and most parents find that after 3 weeks their baby has already changed a lot. The idea of Newborn photoshoots are to capture a baby where they are still curled up and almost in the same positions as they were in the womb, but with pretty blankets and textures to create a warm and cosy feel.

Why if my baby cries?

Some babies sleep through the whole session and some babies can need a little more time to settle in-between each set up. This is why I allow up to 4 hours. I want this to be a relaxing time for you so if it means that it takes time to feed your baby, that's ok. I have a cosy studio and a nice comfy sofa for you to relax on and when baby is ready again I can get started.

Do I need to bring any accessories?

Not unless you want to. There is a studio filled with wraps, textures, bowls and outfits so you don't have to bring anything. Sometimes my clients bring a special blanket or gift that they would like photographed with baby but it really isn't necessary.

Can I bring my family

Yes. It is a very special time and parents and older siblings should be included. As the session can take 4 hours I do suggest that we stick to the minimum amount of people so if you did want to bring anyone else please let me know beforehand so I can advice if this would be possible.

How many photos do you take.

On the day I will discuss with you the type of photos you want and will take a few images form each set up and group photo. They at your viewing you will see a gallery of 30 photos to choose from.

Where are you based?

My home studio is based in Welwyn garden city. Close to the A1m and in-between two mainline trial stations. My clients easily travel from market, Finchley, Edgware, Harrow, North London, Potters Bar and Hertfordshire.
