Newborn Sessions

Newborn and Baby Photography Sessions in Minehead, Somerset.

A newborn photo session is perfect for capturing the first couple of weeks of your gorgeous newborn while they’re still sleepy and squishy!

Newborn sessions ideally take place between 5 - 14 days old to ensure the perfect amount of time for baby to be sleepy which creates a better chance of getting those sleepy, curly poses that we all love! This is just an ideal window, of course babies can be photographed up to 8 weeks as a newborn using a variety of different wraps and poses, and every baby is different, with some more sleepy than others!

I allow up to 4 hours for my newborn sessions so we can capture those beautiful sleepy poses and will focus on capturing your baby in a variety of angles and poses.  There’s plenty of time for feeds, nappy changes and my sessions will never feel rushed!

Your newborn session will take place in my purpose built newborn & family photography studio just to the side of my home in Minehead. When you arrive, I want you to feel at home. You can help yourself to tea, coffee and snacks so you can sit back and relax, while I happily snap away with your precious one. 

Bookings are made around a week after your due date with options to move if your little one arrives early or late. I only take on a few newborn sessions each month to ensure I have space each week for each baby within the ideal window. A £50 deposit is required upon making your booking which is deducted from the balance due on the day of your session.

Why choose me as your Newborn Photographer?

Newborn photography isn't just a job for me, it's my absolute passion and I pride myself on being able to create stunning images that you will cherish forever.

Creating beautiful newborn images takes a lot of dedication, patience and knowledge to know how to safely care, comfort and pose your baby. Being a mum of 2 beautiful young boys, I know just how precious our little ones are, and safety is my number one priority over and above everything else. I've trained with one of the UK's leading, award winning newborn photographers on safe newborn practice, posing and safe handling and I'm also Paediatric First Aid Trained. I've also completed numerous online training courses with leading industry professionals and continually do so to ensure I stay updated.

I've invested in a purpose built newborn studio equipped with stunning props and fabrics to allow me to create absolutely stunning images that you will feel proud to have in your home.

How do I book?

Choose your favourite package from those listed above then drop me an email with your due date or baby's age so that I can check availability. Once the date is confirmed we can book your session and please don't worry if your baby is early or late, once you are in the diary the date can be moved.
