From baby bump through to sleepy newborns and onto the tentative first steps from adventurous toddlers, we’ve been creating photographs to treasure of the most precious members of your family for over 30 years.
Sessions cost £39 to book and our bespoke service is all about taking unique, personal images just for you. Capturing those most precious of moments in time so that you can share them with your family and friends.
Our warm, comfortable and welcoming baby safe studio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy this special time in your life, as you get used to being a family. We’ve held the Master Photographers Association Certificate for Newborn Safety for over three years, as part of our commitment to caring for the families that visit us, so you can be sure that we’ll look after you and your new baby.
Those first weeks will quickly go by and your baby won’t stay tiny for long. Before you know it, they will be starting to explore the world around them and that first stage will be over.
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY BABY BE FOR A “NEWBORN” PHOTOSHOOT SESSION?
Newborn sessions normally take place within the first 2 weeks of your baby being born. This is so we can capture those soft, curled, sleepy images that your baby will soon grow out of. We can provisionally book these sessions based on your due date. This is particularly important to do as we only have a limited number of newborn sessions available each week. We know that babies rarely arrive on time (they’re always trying to catch us out!) so don’t worry if we have to rearrange appointments if your baby is earlier or later than expected.
Where possible, we suggest that you book in a provisional date for your newborn session, based on your due date, when you reach around your 20th week. The appointment can then remain a flexible date in our diary. Once you’ve had your baby, we’ll ask that you get in touch with us to confirm that the date in the diary still works for you, or reschedule if not.
Your new born session is likely to last around 3 hours, to allow for baby to be fed, changed and settled during the photoshoot. We also feel that it’s really important to us that you, as new parents, have time to relax and enjoy your newborn photoshoot as those early days with a new baby can be totally exhausting!
Our aim is to create soft, beautiful images for you to treasure, of this very special time in your lives. You are welcome to bring along any items that you’d like to include, such as toys, baby blankets, and maybe some of the gifts you may have been given for baby. Alternatively, we have a wide range of soft blankets, cloth wraps, hats, headbands etc available to choose from, here at the studio.
Becoming a big brother or sister can be an exciting time for some, for others it may take a little while to get used to having another little one around. It’s important for them to feel involved so please let us know if you’d like to include some sibling shots of them and the new addition together.
Our maternity photoshoots are a great way to capture the last weeks of your pregnancy. We recommend sessions take place around 34-38 weeks, as a guide. If you’d like a lasting reminder of your pregnancy curves, please call us as soon as possible. We’ll create beautiful, sensitive and artistic images for you to treasure.
Book an appointment for any of our photoshoots through our 24 hour ONLINE DIARY. Alternatively, please call the studio on 01249 816707 and leave a message, if you have any questions at all.
