Newborn Photoshoot - Romy | Hampshire | Surrey | Guildford | Fleet | Starspeckled Hearts Photography
Updated: Sep 10
Being a newborn photographer in Hampshire means I get to spend lots of time with adorable, cuddly babies. Doesn't that just sound like the most amazing job ever?! I had the pleasure of meeting this adorable little girl and her lovely parents last week when they came to visit me in my photography studio in Aldershot. Romy was such a star for her newborn session, I couldn't have asked for a better model!
Welcome to the world, beautiful Baby Romy ♡
I just adore family shots. The interaction between the parents and their new bundle of joy is just magical - it's clear to see how in love her mummy and daddy are with their gorgeous little princess.
When I direct family shots, I try to let the interaction happen naturally. Sometimes I will give the parents some pointers as to how best to support baby's head and body, or make minor adjustments to tilt baby's head slightly towards the camera, but I always find the non-posed shots come across so much better, and they're almost always the ones that end up being parent favourites too.
And look at this sweet moment I captured between Romy and her stunning mummy ♡
Did you know that I always leave plenty of time to include family shots as part of my newborn sessions? I always recommend having a few family photos done as part of your newborn session - I've had clients deciding not to, only to message me and say how badly they regretted not having it done!
As a mum myself, I know firsthand how you will very likely have a full camera roll of photos of your precious baby, but a fraction of those will be of you/your partner and baby and even fewer of all of you together as a family. You may not feel you look your best right after having your baby but this is a time you will never get back!
Safe and snug - lulled to sleep in Daddy's arms. They grow so fast and there's something so special about being able to look back, remembering just how tiny your little one used to be in your arms.
Beautiful baby girl in pink. Romy's parents had requested neutral colours along with different tones of pinks and whites. I loved preparing for this session and picking out different fabrics and textures to compliment each other. Romy looks stunning in every single colour they chose, it was so difficult for me to narrow down the images to use for this blog!
And another favourite, I just love this shot of Baby Romy in this adorable little romper and matching headband. This is just one of many outfits I have available in my studio wardrobe, for clients to use throughout their newborn sessions. My photography studio in Aldershot, Hampshire is full of beautiful handmade outfits in a variety of different styles and beautiful bespoke props - I am a self confessed prop-a-holic, but I want to be able to provide parents with exactly the style and feel they're after.
I am in love with these personalised letters that Romy's mummy brought along to their newborn session. It adds such a special personal touch - I'm sure this will be one for the wall!
How sweet is this shot of baby Romy? Love the pinks and florals!
As a small business owner, there's honestly not a better feeling than receiving glowing reviews - a massive thank you to Baby Romy's mummy for leaving this heartwarming review.
"Amazing photographer who made us feel very welcome. Yasmin listened to what images we were after for our newborn photoshoot and helped us incorporate our own ideas. So pleased with the outcome of the pictures and wouldn't hesitate to use and recommend her again!" - Carly S.
I really enjoyed meeting Baby Romy and her lovely mummy and daddy - it was such a pleasure getting to know you all!

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.
