How newborn baby portraits are created

Safety First – Your baby’s safety is first and foremost, we leave nothing to chance. Each shot is planned and discussed in detail with the parents.

Maternity portrait sessions are best booked in for when you are around 36 weeks, this is when you and your bump is looking at its most beautiful. The actual session will last around one hour.

Newborn baby portrait sessions can last anything from 2 to 4 hours depending on the variety and how the baby is feeling.

The best time to have the newborn baby portrait session is when the baby is no older than 7-10 days. This is when the baby is at its most relaxed and flexible.

3 month, 6 month and 1 year Baby Portrait sessions, last around 1 hour and capture the baby’s progress as they sit crawl, walk and play.
