Newborn Photography

The session

The count down is on until your get to meet your beautiful baby! Those first cuddles, tiny kisses, their smile & that amazing bond you have with your baby is truly special. Let’s celebrate those fleeting moments and capture memories you will treasure for years to come. 

Your newborn experience is all about you. Its a time to relax, switch off and enjoy these fleeting moments. Let time stand still as Lauren captures memories for you that will undoubtedly become a record of the connection that you and your family share at this special time in your lives.

Newborns up to 12 weeks

Those first few weeks can be an absolute whirlwind and that is why we offer capturing your little ones newborn photos between 4 days to 12 weeks of age. Spend those first few days and weeks settling in at home, learning about each other and developing that incredible bond you will have with your baby. 

By the time your session comes along you will have a well established feeding routine and your body will be feeling stronger. Plus, this is when we most often get to capture those cheeky smiles and funny facial expessions. 

Newborns up to 6 weeks

Relaxed posing

From the moment you step into the studio we encourage you to take some time to relax and switch off. Be completely present in the moment for your family photos then… we want you to have some one on one time with your partner and simply ‘kick back’. We will be your baby sitter for the next hour!

One thing you don’t have to worry about is feeling posed. You will be guided into flattering positions and quite simply, all you need to do is bring the love and just look at how beautiful your baby is. 

Building friendships

We love creating memories for your family. Being parents ourselves, by the end we’ve usually chatted so much about motherhood and life that  it just feels like we’ve had a coffee catch up rather than a photo session. 

Your baby will run the session, they will want to feed, cuddle and sometimes we will even catch a smile! Your baby whisperer photographer will have secret settling techniques… we can put your worries at ease right now about them potentially being unsettled, your baby will love being wrapped up and cuddled.
