New baby girl Newcastle

As a new parent, you want to preserve every moment of your baby’s life, especially those precious first days. One way to capture the beauty and innocence of your baby is with a newborn photography session. The sweet baby girl below was a very welcome addition to turn this couple into a family of three.

I love to photograph new babies in their own home, it helps parents and bub remain comfortable and stress free. Here are some tips for making the most of your session

1.Schedule the session early – The ideal time for a newborn photography session is within the first two weeks of your baby’s life. This is when they’re most likely to be sleepy and easy to pose. Schedule your session early to ensure you can secure the date and time that works best for you and your family.

2. Prepare your baby – Make sure to dress your baby in comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing and feed them before the session to ensure they are content and sleepy. I can provide an idea of items to have ready for the session, such as blankets, props, and outfits.

3. Create a comfortable environment – Make sure the room is warm, quiet, and free from distractions to help your baby stay calm and relaxed. Make the bed with a fresh simple cover and add cushions for atmosphere and colour.

4. Relax and have fun -The key to a successful newborn photography session is to relax and enjoy the experience. I will guide you through the poses and help create a comfortable and safe environment for your baby. Take this time to bond with your little one and create lasting memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.

By creating a comfortable environment, and relaxing and having fun, we can create stunning images that will preserve this special time in your family’s life.
