Having a baby is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and special times in your life. What better reason to book a photography session to mark this special occasion? Below are 6 reasons why you should book a Newborn Photography Session with Starspeckled Hearts Photography;

You can't stop time Those first few weeks are a whirlwind. The feeds, outfit and nappy changes, visitors, doctors appointments - it can all quickly blur into one. Before you know it, your little sleepy newborn won't be so little anymore. Time flies. It really does, I know it sounds cliche but it's really true! Newborn sessions are best scheduled for the first 2 weeks of your babies life - this is when they are still all curled up like how they were in the womb and they're still very sleepy. However, I offer newborn sessions up to 8 weeks - so if you've got an "older" newborn, I will still try my best to capture those classic, sleepy newborn photos for you.

These three gorgeous boys were all over 5 weeks at the time of their Newborn Session. And they all slept through their entire session! This is exactly why I am happy to take on babies up to 8 weeks for Newborn Sessions. Remember those little details, forever That adorable button nose, squishy cheeks, gorgeous tiny toes and those dimpled little hands. They're all little details that are worth capturing, for you to be able to look back on. The perfect gift And those stunning photographs that we capture on the day of your Newborn Session will make the perfect gift for family members! Did you know that I also offer bespoke Birth Announcement cards as part of my Newborn Photography Packages?

They change so quickly

This is a time you will never get back. Your baby is learning new skills every day and changing before your very eyes. They are only tiny for so long and before you know it, the newborn days will only be a distant memory. And once the newborn days have passed, you will never have the opportunity to capture these memories again.

It's the perfect chance to capture the family together Yes, images of your squishy baby is why you're having a Newborn session. But when is the last time you've had a family photo taken of you, your partner and your children? Most people will struggle to remember when that was! By investing in a professional photography session, you're essentially investing in family heirlooms - images you will have in your family for generations. And just imagine your baby, 20 years from now, looking through an album of gorgeous images of you snuggling them tight. My children are only 2 and 1 and they already LOVE looking through their newborn photos. As part of most of my photography sessions, I include family, parent and sibling shots at no extra cost. This is something I've always wanted to offer my clients without charging any extra. As a parent myself, I know first hand how there never seems to be time to get the family together for a photo. By booking a session with me, I can guarantee you some stunning family photos that you'll treasure for years to come.

Quality and Experience

By investing in a photoshoot with a professional Newborn photographer, you can rest assured that they've got the right training and professional equipment in order for them to perfectly capture your precious bundle of joy. Most importantly, they will be trained in handling your delicate newborn in the safest possible way. Never attempt some of the more complicated poses you may see online - safety should always be the most important aspect of newborn photography.

So that sums up my 6 reasons for booking a Newborn Session with Starspeckled Hearts Photography. Have I piqued your interest? Please have a look through my newborn gallery and if you have any questions at all or would like to book in with me, please do get in touch. I'd love to chat with you!


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 submit a message via my contact page or send me an email at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
