Newborn Photography Guide for Parents

1. When is the best time for a newborn session?
We recommend booking a newborn session in the first 4 to 14 days when babies are still very sleepy and flexible. This is the best time for our baby photographer to capture those cute curled-up poses.
2. When do I need to book my baby’s session?
Ideally, we recommend you to book a session at least a month in advance. Don’t worry if you’ve missed this “deadline”. We accept “last-minute” bookings as well when our schedule permits. Feel free to give us a call if unsure and we will do our best to find you the perfect slot.
3. Where are you located?

Our photo studio is located in The Clock Tower Annexe, Summerdown Manor, Summerdown Lane, East Horsley, Leatherhead KT24 5TP. 

4. How long does a newborn session last?
The newborn photo shoot can last up to 4 hours, allowing for settling the baby, taking photos, changing, soothing and feeding when required.
5. What do I need to bring for the photoshoot?
You need to bring nothing but you precious little one. Our baby photographer provides the backdrops, accessories and clothing needed for a session. We use natural materials for props which are gentle to your baby’ skin.
6. Is it safe to photograph a baby at such young age?
Your baby’s safety is our top priority. Tamara – our photographer, is qualified in Infant First Aid and has completed a Maternity nurse training. She is also a mother of three herself, so you can rest assured your baby will be in safe hands.
7. When will the photos be ready?
Your baby’s digital photos will be ready within 2 weeks after the photo shoot. If you have printing products in your order, it may take 2-3 weeks before they are dispatched.
8. Can I order printing products?
The short answer is – yes! There is nothing more fine-looking than displaying the beautiful life you have created in your home, office, desk or share with your family. We offer a range of printing products like albums, folio boxes, framed pictures, canvases, framed art and others for a spectacular presentation of your little beauty.
9. How do I schedule a newborn session?
