Newborn session - Baby M | Ash Vale | Frimley | Hampshire | Surrey | Starspeckled Hearts Photography
Updated: Apr 23
Meet gorgeous little Matilda. The sweetest little girl with the sweetest little pout! I had the pleasure of meeting this stunning baby girl last year for her newborn session - she came to visit me with her lovely mummy and daddy and her two beautiful big sisters. Keep scrolling to see more from Matilda's sweet and girly newborn session.
I always start my Newborn sessions with family and sibling shots - for a variety of reasons. If my clients have brought their older children along, I prefer to get them involved straight away. The vast majority of older siblings absolutely love posing for the camera and having a cuddle with their new brother or sister! Once we've finished, I usually suggest that one of the parents take their older children outside in my garden to have a run around - or even to the nearby Manor Park which is only a short 3 minute walk away. It is complete with a large playground and there's even a little pond where they can feed the ducks!
It can sometimes be difficult to settle the little ones with older siblings present in the studio and I find they sometimes get restless as newborn sessions can easily take a couple of hours. I do have a few books and toys in the studio to keep the younger children entertained, but I definitely recommend bringing a tablet or perhaps an activity book to keep them happy if the weather is miserable!
Matilda and her daddy. You could tell she felt instantly comforted in her daddy's arms. I love the interaction when baby is wide awake for the parent + baby shots. These black and white silhouetted shots are always a client favourite.
Those that know me will be well aware that I'm a lover of all things pink, lace and floral. I'm so glad her mummy requested pastel pinks and was totally on board with my ideas!
I loved setting up this sweet and girly session for this adorable baby girl. Her gallery has a variety of wide awake and sleepy shots - it's not always possible to capture both but I'm so glad I got the chance to snap a few of her with her big blue eyes wide open!

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 your baby has already arrived, 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 questions in regards to my Little Smiler sessions or 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 email@example.com and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
