Baby Bella was just 11 days old when she came to see me with her lovely family in my boutique photography studio in Aldershot, Hampshire. Bella was such a dream baby for her session, she slept like an angel and didn't make a peep throughout her entire session! As I tend to book up months in advance, I definitely recommend getting in touch as early as possible - after the 20-week scan at the latest, to secure a space.

Keep scrolling to see some of my favourite photos from Bella's newborn session.




Having a chat with the parents is always one of my favourite things about my job. I really want my clients to feel comfortable and to be able to fully relax during the session. The journey to my Hampshire studio is often the family's first outing after having their baby! So a lot of times nerves are high upon arrival, but after a nice cuppa and a chat and a laugh, they always settle in and enjoy being able to sit back and let me work my magic!

Bella was such a little star for her newborn session and was so good to me. She even let me capture some gorgeous smiles!


I have a huge variety of outfits in the studio to use for newborn, babies and first birthday sessions, one of my most popular props is this beautiful macrame rainbow - I adore the symbolism behind the rainbow and how it has so much meaning beyond just being a pretty prop to incorporate into a photo.

One of the questions I get asked all the time is when the ideal time to photograph a newborn is. I believe different ages come with their own set of advantages.

From birth up until 2 weeks of age your baby will still be very sleepy - so chances are that baby's eyes will be shut on the majority of the photos. This is the age many photographers will often insist is the ideal time to get those beautiful classic newborn photos. Baby will be easier to pose as they still have the natural instinct to curl up, as if they were still in the womb.

From 1-3 months of age your baby will gradually start spending more time awake and are becoming more aware of their surroundings. This is also when they start to smile and coo, which makes this a brilliant opportunity to capture those big beautiful eyes and gorgeous gummy smiles!

I completely understand the difficulty of trying to fit a newborn photoshoot in amongst the first few weeks of your little ones life, which is why I am happy to book in babies up to 2 months of age.

Adorable Baby Bella was only 11 days old for her newborn session! By bringing your baby in at this age, you're more likely to take home lots of those classic, sleepy newborn photos.




This shot is one of my favourites from his session. I love how gentle Bella's big brother was with her, he absolutely adores her already

If you would like photos of siblings together at one of my newborn shoots, I tend to take them at the beginning so that we have plenty of time to get the baby settled again. I will then usually suggest one of the parents take the older children to the nearby playground while we carry on with the newborn shoot.

Family photos are always a clear favourite of mine. Being able to capture these special moments for my clients is truly special. These photos are often the first photos taken of the parents and their new bundle of joy all together.

They grow so quickly, it's all about preserving those little moments and creating forever memories while you can

Are you looking to book a Newborn Session?

Newborn sessions are best booked for when baby is between 1 to 2 weeks old. This is because they are still all curled up, like how they were in the womb and are still very sleepy. That being said, I am more than happy to book in babies for newborn sessions up to 8 weeks of age.

As a mum myself, I can completely appreciate how it might be difficult to get the time to fit in a newborn photoshoot in those first few weeks, on top of everything else you've got going on! I wouldn't discourage you from considering a newborn session if you've missed that golden window to book. "Older" newborns can sometimes be just as easy to pose as a baby that's only a couple of days old - regardless of your newborns age, we can capture some beautiful images for you and your family to cherish for years to come.

If you're interested in booking your newborn session with me, I suggest getting in touch no later than after your 20 week scan. If your baby is already here, you're more than welcome to get in touch - I always leave a few spaces free every month for last minute bookings.

If you would like to make a booking, please don't hesitate to get in touch either via my contact form here or send me an email at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
