Newborn Photography Essex
Newborn Photographer in Essex
The tiny hands and feet, perfect little rolls, gorgeous eyelashes, and beautiful sleepy faces. Capturing your newborn in those early weeks before they begin changing each and every day is a must. I love nothing more than creating beautiful, timeless images of your newborn, to cherish always. My style is pure, simple, natural and most important to me, we always put the baby first.
Using neutral colours as my staple backdrops and blankets, I have a less is more, minimalistic approach with props and outfits. I focus on the beauty of your baby and all those tiny details that you will want to remember forever.
When should I book in my newborn photography session?
You can book in for this session from your 20-week scan. I only book a certain amount of newborn photoshoots each month to ensure I can fit everyone in (as we know our precious newborn babies can sometimes decide to join us a little early or late).
Newborn shoots are best done between 6-14 days old, this ensures that they are still sleepy and super supple (which although my poses are very natural, is ideal for newborn photography) and that we can really capture those early days. They change so fast! If you are finding me a little later after their arrival, this is not a problem. There are still plenty of gorgeous moments we can capture with your beautiful baby.
How should I prepare for our newborn shoot?
Prior to your session, we will discuss any particular images in my portfolio that you love and any family images you would like me to capture. If your baby is a little older than the recommended newborn age (6-14 days old), we can discuss their routine to work out the best time for the shoot.
On the day, I ask for you to try your best to keep your baby awake for a minimum of 1 hour prior to leaving for the session, then, before you make your journey here, please give them a nice full feed. This will ensure your baby is content, has a full tummy and is super tired, ready to sleep through their shoot whilst we work our magic on getting those beautiful sleepy shots!
How long are the photo sessions?
The session usually lasts 2-3 hours, so there is plenty of time and no pressure. Once you arrive you can hand your little one over into my safe hands and sit back and relax. I will take care of undressing them down to their nappy, ready for their shoot. I please ask for you to bring your baby’s usual comforts such as extra bottles and a dummy, this will ensure we keep them settled throughout.
Once the newborn shot is complete, we will move on to family photos. No matter how camera shy you might be, you will cherish a family photo with you and your newborn forever. No need to be shy, I am super relaxed and will guide you on how to pose whilst we capture beautiful photos for you to cherish. I love a natural style family photo, so just take in this special moment with your newborn. Neutral coloured clothing always makes for the best photographs, avoiding chunky jewellery or accessories to ensure these images remain timeless memories.

Why have a professional newborn photoshoot?
There are so many reasons to book in for a newborn photoshoot. The first few weeks and months are so very precious but can become a complete whirlwind in your amazing newborn bubble and the moments will fly past. You will try to capture moments as a family yourself from behind the camera, but it is an invaluable investment to have professional and timeless images taken by a photographer, where I will be able to really capture the love between you all forever. All too often we look back on moments in time and wish we had more photographs, a professional photoshoot ensures there are no regrets.
Some of the main reasons for getting these photographs taken include documenting the very early moments of life (not just of your baby but with your new family included too) and keeping a digital and physical copy of these moments which, you can look back on and truly cherish forever. The experience of the shoot will also be such a special occasion for you, often your first outing as a new family, so the memories of this and the emotions you will feel throughout will stay with you for a long time. After the shoot, you will receive your gallery of timeless and clean photographs to choose from, once you have chosen and received your final images back, you will have the perfect memories to share with family and friends and announce your beautiful new arrival.
Where are the newborn photographs taken?
The photographs are taken in a relaxed studio environment. I always ensure that a very safe and gentle approach is taken to so that the baby is comfortable and content throughout the photoshoot. A calm environment is key, in order to make the experience a magical one. You can sit back, relax and rest assured that this baby-led shoot will be a stress free experience for you all.
