As a newborn photographer Kent, I create newborn images with a combination of Fine Art and Lifestyle photography. I love working with newborns. Dinky toes, chubby cheeks and sleepy smiles make my heart glow. My sessions are very relaxed, shot with my studio equipment in my home, and I have been safety trained by Kelly Brown and Ana Brandt – alongside being first aid trained and having had children of my own – to ensure that you can trust me when handling your little one. I have a variety of props (and an ever growing addiction to buying more) that I will use when posing your little one. Use of these is included in all prices.
I require a £50 non-refundable retainer to secure your session.
Newborn sessions are best captured in the first two weeks of life (the sweet spot being around 5-12 days) – so we have a small window to work with for the best results. Under two weeks old, babies remain sleepy and easier to settle – while after two weeks, things like baby acne and colic can flare up. Newborn sessions usually last around 2-4 hours depending on how fussy your baby is and I will send you a little guide on how to prepare for your session beforehand.
Sessions with me as a Newborn Photographer Kent
You can get in touch at any point during your pregnancy or after to book in a newborn session; just provide me with your estimated due date and I will pencil in a tentative booking around that time; when you and baby arrive home from hospital safely you can contact me and arrange a suitable time for our session. Should baby have to stay in hospital for a while after birth, we can arrange a session at the hospital as well. In some circumstances it is possible for me to come to your home and set up, but this does require a good amount of extra space.
For the best availability, book in after your 20 week scan. If your baby is over 2 weeks, we can still sort a session out – please get in touch as soon as possible to secure a slot. I shoot newborns up to 6 weeks.
If baby is being fussy and we can’t get satisfactory photos, this price also includes an extra session in which we can come back and try again to get beautiful photos (if you’re not busy and I’m not booked, we can do this the same day, but sometimes babies can be overwhelmed.)!
