Newborn Photographer

Newborn Photography in your home.

I take beautiful professional newborn photos of your baby in the comfort of your home. Your baby is naturally posed by myself, an experienced newborn photographer. I travel to families throughout Nottinghamshire, Derby and further afield on request.

If you’re a parent who feels less is more in newborn photos, then you’ll be comfortable with my style of newborn photography.

After all, babies are beautiful just as they are.

Naturally & Safely posed Newborn Photos

My newborn sessions are all about your baby and family rather than overpowering props. The result is timeless photos.

As well as curled up sleepy poses, I capture expressions and moments to melt your heart today and in years to come.

And not forgetting photos of togetherness. The beginning of the most special bond.

During the shoot Alison was so patient and caring with our little boy allowing him to be completely comfortable and relaxed. Alison did an amazing job capturing the personality of our little boy! The photos are amazing. Anjumn.

About your newborn session

My newborn photography takes place in the comfort of your own home. Ideally this is in the first 2 weeks but I take the same approach up to 5 weeks old. It’s never too late for beautiful photos of your baby and, if your baby is older, you can read my blog post ‘Is it too late for newborn photos’.

I allocate up to 3 hours for a session taking away the parent worry if your baby needs feeding or setting.

Your baby is safely posed photos throughout the session as well as capturing the little yawns and expressions naturally displayed. I concentrate on your baby rather than gimmicky props which will date in years to come. The result is simple and beautiful photos by an experienced newborn photographer.

FAQ’S for Newborn Shoots

Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home.  There’s no need to worry about taking your baby out in the early days and remembering to pack the kitchen sink(!), I come to you to make it as easy as possible.

I live in Nottingham and travel to Derby, Grantham and areas of Leicestershire.   For areas outside of the East Midlands, travelling costs may apply.  Please let me know your post code at the time of enquiry.

Newborn sessions generally takes place within the first 2 weeks and often up to 5 weeks old.   The sooner the better though for those lovely curled up poses.   As babies get older they stay awake for longer periods and become stronger pushing themselves out of poses.   An experienced  newborn photographer will advise on photos achievable for older babies.

3 hours are allocated for a newborn session. This allows time for feeding and settling your baby during the session. Your session may be shorter but the extra time allocated is there so parents don’t feel rushed.

Of course. I take these with a lifestyle approach so they are very natural of you and your baby at home rather than a formal photo. These could be taken sitting on your bed, sofa or standing using your home surroundings, i.e. your baby’s nursery.

Please let me know in advance if you having siblings you would like to include in the session and their age so that I can plan the flow of your session as best as possible.

I bring a selection of blankets to create a backdrop for your baby to lay on. I also have a few hats and simple wraps.

I don’t use basket props, flower arrangements etc as I want the photos to be all about your baby rather than props which may date in years to come. If you have something special you would like to incorporate in your session, however, I’m happy to include this. Please let me know beforehand so I can plan your session including it.

I have an excellent reputation in Nottingham as a newborn photographer. You can some of my reviews on Google and Facebook.

Some parents will book in after their second scan to ensure availability. All bookings taken in advance of your baby arriving are provisional dates and a fixed date is arranged once your baby arrives. By having a date in my diary it ensures availability around your due date.

If your baby has already arrived, please give me a call on 07977 499473 or contact me and I will let you know the earliest date available for your session. As newborn session bookings are often rescheduled, late availability often comes up and I will always do my best to fit families in sooner rather than later.
