Newborn Photography

Photographing newborn babies is such a privilege and I absolutely love it. It takes a lot of patience but the reward is worth it – gorgeous portraits of an amazing new life.

Newborn photoshoots usually take around 2-4 hours, which allows time for feeding, nappy changes and getting the baby settled into a nice deep sleep. All sessions take place in the comfort of your home, and the photography fee includes my transport to anywhere in Northern Ireland. If you live outside Northern Ireland, but would still like me to photograph your newborn baby, just get in touch for a travel cost estimate.

On the day of your photography session, I will bring a range of props and blankets to use as backdrops, but if you have any special piece of furniture or toys you’d like photographed with your baby, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I can also take photos of you with your newborn, or even the whole family together. All I need is a room with good natural window light, and a bit of space to move furniture around! I will bring a small blow heater, but I do recommend getting your house lovely and warm before I arrive – if it feels like a sauna, it’s good for sleepy babies!

The best newborn photographs are taken when a baby is less than one week old, so I can’t stress enough how important it is to book your newborn photography session well in advance of your due date. By booking early we can make sure I’m free in those precious first few days – it’s essential for those cute, snuggly, sleepy newborn photos we love : )

Here are a few of my most recent newborn photography sessions:
