I am an award winning newborn, baby, child and maternity photographer offering creative photography. Most clients have their session in my purpose built photography studio Weybridge, Surrey where they can relax and enjoy the experience and not worry about tidying up the house.
Newborn baby sessions take slightly longer than older baby, child or maternity sessions due to tiny babies having to feed often. On average a newborn session takes 3 hours. The ideal time to have your newborn photographed is within 2 weeks of their birth. This is when you get those lovely sleeping newborn photos that just melt your heart. Once babies are older than this they start looking a bit more grown up and they don't sleep as easily. It's worth booking your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure that you get a booking on the day you want.
If you have missed the ideal newborn photography age range then the next good stage is when they are between 4 and 6 months old. After that the first birthday is always a good one, we'll also be doing some cake smashing if you like.
