Baby Alfie was just over 5 weeks old when he came to see me with his lovely mummy and nanna just before Christmas for his studio newborn session in my boutique photography studio in Aldershot, Hampshire. This was quite a last minute booking, but luckily I was able to squeeze them in for a newborn 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 Alfie'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!
I just love this gorgeous handmade bonnet and shorts set! This outfit and many more are all available in my studio wardrobe for clients to use as part of their newborn session.
Alfie was such a little star for his newborn session and was so good to me. Despite not being very interested in sleeping, he was so well-behaved and so happy and content.
I have a huge variety of outfits in the studio to use for newborn, babies and first birthday sessions, but I always encourage my clients to bring a little something of their own - it adds that personal touch and these images always end up being client favourites!
And because we were coming up to Christmas, Alfie's mummy had brought a special outfit to include in his session - a gifted Christmas sleepsuit. His sweet little pout in the image below just gets me - he's so stunning and looks so peaceful!
This shot is one of my favourites from his session. I love including mummy and daddy's hands, it's so special to be able to look back and see just how tiny they used to be in your hands ♡
I really love incorporating keepsakes or something unique to you as a family - perhaps your wedding bands or engagement rings on their tiny big toe. It's a reminder of how tiny their little feet were too! They grow so quickly, it's all about preserving those little moments and creating forever memories while you can ♡ As a professional photographer in Aldershot, Hampshire, I’ve worked with numerous families and hundreds of newborns, including many "older" newborns. I wont lie, photographing older newborns can be a challenge! But a challenge I thoroughly enjoy and creating gorgeous memories for my clients is my top priority.
Reviews like the one below just warm my heart, thank you so much for the kind words! "I went in to have a photo shoot with my little guy & Yasmin was amazing from start to finish! She made me and little man feel at ease and the finished product was GORGEOUS!! Thankyou again, I’m so happy with the outcome x" - Lauren D
I so enjoyed meeting Baby Alfie and his lovely family, thank you so very much for choosing me as your newborn photographer!

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 have any other questions in regards to my newborn sessions, please click here to send me a message or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
