Natural Newborn & Baby Photography Experience in Braintree, Essex

At last, after months of waiting, you’re going to see your beautiful baby’s face. Time to start telling the story of your new arrival into your family with some beautiful newborn & baby photography in Braintree, Essex.

This life changing, unforgettable time of your life is so special and it’s wonderful to capture those very early days with very simple, beautiful photography.

How long does a session take?

The time spent does depend on your baby however I would allow around 2-3 hours for your session.  The studio is warm and cosy and you can comfortably feed your baby during the session.  Refreshments are available for you too.

What is included in my session?

We’ll spend around 2-3 hours in the cosy log cabin studio capturing very natural simplistic images of your baby and then we’ll arrange for an in home viewing session around a week after your shoot.  There are 3 packages available or we can put one together especially for you.

When is the ideal time to have my baby photographed?

Ideally your baby will be photographed at around 7-14 days old so that you capture those very early days.   They can also still curl up easily in those first few days, just as they were in the womb.  My photography is very natural and not too posed.   If your baby decides to stay awake then it’s awake shots that we’ll capture, if they want to sleep then that’s fine too!  Every baby is beautiful and we’ll capture them in a very natural way.  Already your baby will have a preferred way of settling and I will spend time making sure that they are safe, warm and comfortable.  These images will be so special to you and your family.  You are also welcome to bring along something special to include in a photograph such as a blanket or toy.

What if my baby is a bit older?

Don’t worry, lovely portaits of your baby are still very possible!  Being a bit older, your baby will probably be more alert and there’s the opportunity capture those gorgeous big eyes as they gaze at the lights around them.

When should I book my session?

Ideally, if you’d like your baby photographed within the first 10 days then you need to book your session whilst you are still pregnant.  Give me a call on 07849 854308 and we’ll put a provisional date in the diary for 10 days after your due date.  Then you can just let me know when baby is born so that the shoot date can be confirmed.

If your baby has already arrived, please do give me a call and we can look for some availability for you.

Can I bring along my baby’s siblings?

Yes they can come too!  It’s helpful if another adult is around to help keep them occupied, especially if they’re youngsters.  At the end of the session we will include them in a photograph or two and also capture some family images.

Had amazing day when Sally meet Declan for his newborn photos, Declan was only 9 days and Sally was amazing with him, patient and friendly.  Did an amazing job and even got photos of me and my husband with our Son! I couldn’t thank you enough for our amazing memories. Emma
