My newborn sessions are very relaxed, and we take it slow. There is no pressure, and the session is completely baby led. I have lots of snacks in my studio and most importantly lots of coffee. There is absolutely no rush, and we will just take our time to work with your baby’s needs and ensure they are comfortable. I aim to capture the emotions and love through my photography so you can treasure these memories forever. Please look below for any further information. If you have any questions please contact me, I’d love to hear from you!

Where does the session take place?
The newborn session can take place at either in my cosy studio in Billingshurst or we can do a lifestyle session in your home. It depends what type of photos you'd like to capture and we can discuss this when booking.
Is there anything I need to bring or prepare for our session?
I encourage all clients to bring any sentimental items with them such as little teddies to include in the photographs or an outfit you'd like photographs in. If you are not using my client wardrobe please bring a couple of outfit changes. I reccomend bringing spare nappies and milk if you are not breastfeeding, as there will be lots of breaks to settle baby.
How many people can there be in the session?
The session can include you, your partner and any of your other children if you have any. Please note newborn sessions can take anywhere from 1-3 hours as the session is fully baby led, so if you have other young children I reccomend to have them come in at the end as they might get a bit bored!
Do you off Black and White photos?
I edit the whole gallery in Black and White and any image you purchase, you will also receive the black and white version too. Black and White are my absoloute favourite!! They need to be a must in your gallery.
Do you have insurance?
Yes I have public liability insurance.
What time of day is best for our outfoor Maternity session?
I reccomend ealry morning or late afternoon/early evening. The reason for this is because this is when the sun is at the perfect position, meaning there is less chance of harsh sunlight shadows in the images.
What is the process after our session?
You will receive an online gallery of up to 20 minimum images 2-3 weeks after our session. You can then choose your own images with your preffered digital image packages. You can simply add the photos you like to your cart and order them through the online gallery. I also offer additonal prints, Mounted Prints USB's and print boxes.
Do you offer prints?
I offer mounted matted prints in 3 different sizes.
Do I have to choose the digital image collection before our session?
No the only payment I require before the session is the session fee which is also a non-refundable deposit to secure our date. You then choose your digital image collection after seeing your full gallery. There is no obligation to even purchase any digital images.
How do I book?
Please fill out the contact form.
When is the best time to book?
I suggest booking when you find out your due date. The reason for this is because I can book up 2-3 months ahead and I would hate to turn anyone away! We will book your due date in and I will clear atleast 2 dates before and after your due date to ensure I can fit you in if the bubba is early or late.
What do I wear if I want to be in the photos?
I have an amazing client wardrobe in my studio with a variety of dresses to choose from. I have a changing room and a mirror too, so you can see what dress you prefer! Please feel free to bring any of your own outfits too and once you are here you can try some on!
