NEWBORN

The best things come in small packages...

There are no words that can describe those early days with your newborn - the pure emotion and utter joy. Your life, your family, has changed beyond measure, in the best possible way.

Slow mornings in bed, snuggles on the sofa, quiet naps and the magic of just getting to know each other. Little fingers, tiny feet and that oh so perfect pout, the hours you spend just gazing at this pretty incredible new human you created. I remember it all so well, even with the sleep deprivation!

This is a time that really is like no other. My newborn photography sessions in Cornwall and Devon capture all of these moments for you and more.

Newborn Photography Sessions in Cornwall & DEVON

I’m super laid back. I promise that I won’t be coming into your home and bossing you all about! Newborn sessions are fully baby-led, they rule the roost after all! We’ll take it nice and slowly and stop for cuddles / changes / feeds whenever needed.

My newborn photography sessions always take place in your home in the Cornwall or Devon areas. You’ll have everything you need to hand and there’ll be no rushing to get out of the door or struggling to remember what you need to pack. I know it’s next to impossible to arrive at appointments on time with a newborn and just how stressful that can feel! Instead, I want you to relax in the place that you’re most comfortable - your home - and I’ll be there to capture all these amazing memories for you.

When I arrive I’ll be a little nosy and wander around your house. I’ll be seeking out the areas with the best light. Please don’t worry about untidy corners or rooms, you’ve just had a baby! I’m a parent too, I totally get it and fully agree that there just aren't enough hours in the day to keep your home picture perfect! I’ll be focussing on you, your new arrival and the bond you share. Typically I’ll photograph you in the living room, main bedroom and nursery (if it’s ready) but if I lead you to a random spot then indulge me, it will be where the beautiful light is!

In a typical newborn session I’ll photograph baby on their own, getting all those tiny details - their curled fists and perfect eyelashes, chubby cheeks and soft skin. There’ll also be moments of you all together. Don’t worry, there’s no awkward posing here, just natural moments of you all together welcoming the newest member of the gang. All family members - including pets! - are more than welcome to get involved.

All the booking info

Newborn photography cornwall baby photos at home devon

✧ For those super brand new baby photographs then I’d recommend a shoot around 6-14 days after baby has arrived.

✧ If you fancy a bit more interaction between you all in your pictures then any time up to around six months post birth works well.

✧ It’s always best to get in touch during your pregnancy. We’ll set a time based around your due date and you can confirm your booking once your baby arrives.

✧ A typical session lasts around two hours - plenty of time for feeding, changing and those all important cuddles.

✧ Shoots work best in the morning - around 10am.

The big question! What to wear?

I’m a big fan of neutral and earthy tones. Think browns, tans, mustard, cream or all whites; black also works too. I always (strongly) recommend you avoid bright colours and strong patterns, especially reds and bright pinks. Keep those Hawaiian shirts for the beach please!

For newborn photography sessions at home we want to keep things nice and relaxed so the most important thing is that you all feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. Skin on skin contact with your newborn is a beautiful thing and I encourage it throughout the shoot, options like cosy loungewear, tank tops and oversized jumpers work so well for this.

If you’re stuck on what to wear, or want to feel pampered then there is an option to use some dresses from my studio wardrobe. These not only make you feel good and look beautiful but can give a dreamy, romantic feel to your photographs.

When it comes to baby keep things simple and neutral. They are the focus after all, not their outfit! A snug fitting babygrow or vest is all that is needed. If you’ve got a footless option then perfect, show off those teeny toes!
