If you're here, it's likely you're expecting a baby (or babies!) soon. If that's so, congratulations!
I adore newborn photography. I've been photographing newborns since 2013, and honestly, I never tire of it. Here they are, these beautiful squishy little creatures that you've been patiently waiting for , for what seems like forever. You knew they'd be small, but somehow it's hard to comprehend quite how tiny they are. They're so perfectly formed, from their fluffy hair to every little crease and dimple.
With newborn photography, I think it's always best to photograph your baby in the simplest way possible. I don't want to fuss them, or to put them in uncomfortable positions. I want them to be relaxed and comfortable, and for you as parents to feel that your baby is in safe hands. I take their safety incredible seriously, and throughout your session will make sure your baby's happiness is always my top priority. Also, I'm aware that you as parents may be tired and anxious: the studio gives you a space to relax too.You can sit on my big comfy sofa with a hot cup of tea and some lunch while I work my magic!
My photography studio in Newton Abbot is just 20 minutes away from Exeter and 30 minutes from Plymouth. It's a beautiful big, airy studio with lots of lovely natural light, and plenty of space. It's the studio I always dreamed of having: big enough to move around and get lots of different images, but small enough to feel safe and welcoming. Its a unique, bespoke space where we can create beautiful, natural newborn photography.
You may have heard that newborn sessions can go on for up to four hours at a time, and that babies need to be in a deep sleep for all of their images. This isn't the case in my studio. My newborn photography sessions are rarely over two hours, and the time is mostly spend with feeding or cuddles! The sessions adapt to your newborn, and if they're awake then we keep going. The emphasis is on them and your family: I simply document it.
If you have older children, they are of course more than welcome in every newborn photography session, as well as you and your partner too of course. And don't worry about big brothers and sisters getting bored or running around: you'll be able to play with them, feed them, even go for a walk around if you'd like. My studio is above a family-friendly cafe, so if you wanted to nip out to get some lunch and then come back, that's also totally fine with me! It really is your time to enjoy.

About Newborn Photography Sessions
Before Your Session
I recommend booking in your newborn session as soon as you can. Most people like to book around the time of their 20 week scan. We obviously don't know exactly when your little one will arrive: so by booking you can guarantee that whenever they make their appearance, I can fit you in.
then, whenever your baby arrives, get in touch and I'll confirm your session on a day that suits you. Ideally, I like to book in your session on a weekday when your baby is 10-18 days old, but there's no strict rules: so don't worry if you're not feeling up to leaving the house so soon!
During Your Session
You really won't need to worry about anything. There are no rules about when you feed them, or what you bring. I ask you to bring along a plain vest or baby grow if you have one, and just their usual milk or dummy. Some people like to bring along a special toy, outfit or blanket for their session, but you don't need to unless you want to. I provide everything else.
During your session, you'll mostly be able to sit back and relax: unless you're having your photo taken or feeding your baby!
After Your Session
I'll email you with the full proofs of your newborn gallery. These will be partly-edited images for you to select your favourites from. At this point you can chose your packages from the comfort of your own home, with no after-sales or minimum orders. I try to make all of my packages all-inclusive to take out any tricky decisions!
Your images, fully edited, high resolution images will be ready for you to download a few days later: and yours to keep, print and share to your heart's content. every package comes with prints (of your choice), and I also offer a range of beautiful, hand-framed wall art options too.
To get some beautiful, natural images of your bump, I also offer maternity photography. Click here to take a look.
