Bringing the Newborn Studio to Your Home

A convenient and personable way to photograph your baby

Hello, I’m Alison and I take beautiful newborn photos in the comfort of your home travelling to families throughout Nottinghamshire, Derby and Leicestershire.

My signature newborn sessions provide a luxurious experience from start to finish bringing the professional studio experience directly to you in your own home.


Naturally Posed Newborn Photos

My approach is to gently pose your baby naturally and timelessly, without relying on overwhelming props. The result is a collection of photographs that you will cherish forever, documenting their smallness, little yawns, windy smiles, and cute expressions that make this time so precious.

As a mum myself, I understand how quickly the whirlwind of new parenthood can transform those first few weeks into distant memories. With over a decade of experience photographing newborn babies, I capture the moments of your newborn’s earliest days with patience and care, ensuring their comfort and safety through expert posing and handling techniques.

Your Newborn Photography Experience

Choose a Mini or Bespoke Newborn Session

A Bespoke Newborn Session lasts up to 3 hours and is recommended if you have your heart set on those sweet curled-up newborn photos. It also includes time for sibling and family shots. Whilst each session length varies based on your baby’s needs, the allocated time allows for feeding, soothing, and posing your baby without feeling rushed. These sessions follow your newborn’s lead, often resulting in a varied selection of sleepy and awake shots.

Travel is included across Nottingham, Derby and parts of Leicestershire. I am happy to travel further afield upon request which will incur additional travel and time costs.

A Mini Newborn Session lasts 1 hour and is ideal if you would just like a few photos to capture your baby whilst they are still tiny. Due to the time allocated, a mini session does not include parent and sibling photos. If your baby falls into a deep sleep, I will gently pose them into newborn positions. If your little one is unsettled or doesn’t nap, I focus on taking awake baby shots only. For mini sessions, travel is included within 10 miles of NG5 7NE.

Book a Date

If you are currently pregnant: You can make a provisional booking based on your baby’s due date. I make a note of your due date in my diary and if you are feeling up to visitors, we’ll arrange your session in the first 1-3 weeks. Making a provisional booking ensures availability around your due date as I only take a limited number of sessions each week in order to devote quality time to each family.

If your baby has already arrived: Please let me know your postcode and whether you would like a Bespoke or Mini Session so I can advise of the earliest available date. Whilst the ideal time for baby photography is around 2 weeks old, I take the same approach up to 5 weeks old.

Booking Information: I will send you an online booking form to complete and a £95 booking fee is required to secure your session with me. This is deducted from your collection price. For Bespoke Newborn Sessions outside of the Nottinghamshire/Derby/Leicestershire area, 50% of Collection 3 plus travelling expenses is payable at the time of booking.

About your Baby Photo Session at Home

Your photo session will take place at your home and I’ll send you some notes to prepare for your session to help create the right environment for your baby photos. A Mini Session lasts 1 hour and a Bespoke Newborn Session up to 3 hours.

Your baby will be comfortably and safely posed on a large newborn beanbag which I cover with a blanket to create a backdrop. I bring a selection of blankets for you to choose from, together with little wraps should you wish to use them. I also bring a portable studio light so there’s no need to worry about lighting.

After your session

Following your session, I professionally edit your photos with care so that you receive a strong, varied collection of baby photos to cherish this special time. As part of my baby photography service, I provide subtle retouching to enhance photos by removing temporary blemishes, scratches, jaundice tones and red blotches (which often appear on a new baby’s skin) while carefully preserving your baby’s natural beauty.

I present both colour and black and white versions of each photo where both versions complement the photo.

All collections include digital images which are supplied as printable files so you can print and share them with your family. I also offer professionally framed prints which can be purchased as an additional product and have samples of these to show you should you wish to see them.
