Photographs are memories that don’t fade with time and photographs are the perfect way to capture the first few precious weeks of your baby’s life. They will only be this tiny once and babies change so quickly so it is important to freeze a moment in time along with the beauty and innocence.
Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, sometimes we may finish earlier or may run over. Your baby will lead the session as we will stop for feeds, comforting and nappy changes to make sure their happy and comfortable throughout the session. The best age to capture your newborn is under 3 weeks old as this is when baby is sleepiest. We recommend booking your newborn shoot early and ideally around your due date, babies can arrive early or late but at least we will have an idea of timings. Once baby has arrived give us a call or an email and we will book you in.

When should i book?
Newborn sessions can be booked as soon as you know the baby’s due date. Babies rarely arrive on time so we pencil you in and once baby has arrived contact us to set the date.
How do i book?
You can contact us via the contact form or send us a direct email or give us a call on 07521 611678 and we can have a chat. We ask for 50% of the booking fee to confirm the booking.
How long does the session last?
We allow up to 4 hours for a newborn session
Why does the session take so long?
We want the shoot to be as calm as possible, this means your baby leads the session. We will stop for feeds plus baby’s take a little while to go to sleep and some may wake up during the posing, so it’s important to take the time and keep baby happy, comfortable and calm.
What age should my baby be for a newborn session?
Ideally newborn sessions take place when baby is aged 7-21 days old.
Do i need anything for the session?
Milk, nappies and a dummy if your using one. We bring along a few props such as wraps, hair bands, hats, basket, bowl. If you have a favourite teddy, special outfit or heirloom please let me know so we can plan to incorporate this in the shoot.
How many photos do we receive?
Approximately 20-30 images.
Thank you so much for our beautiful photographs, they are amazing. we had such a lovely, relaxing experience from start to finish!
"The photos are gorgeous"
Absolutely brilliant. We had our newborn shoot when bub was a week old. The photos are gorgeous and I have no idea how I’m going to whittle them down to the select few to go on the wall! It was a fab morning, quick set up, very easy going and laid back, I was worried about my 3 year old getting bored but he loved watching and helping, he even got to use the camera and took a photo which we got included in our edited photos, who knows you may have sparked off a career choice! Thank you so much!
"I just keep looking at them and smiling"
I just keep looking at them and smiling. Thank you, we will be back for family portraits in the future for sure.
"Brilliant and patient"
We have used capture every moment for family portraits many a time and very recently for a newborn baby shoot. Carissa was brilliant and patient with our not so sleepy baby! I absolutely love the photos and now have the difficult job of picking one for a canvas print
