Newborn Sessions £75
As from 1st April 2017 I will be going mobile....I have a fab new van that I'll carry all my props etc in.. Photographing a newborn baby takes a lot of patience as I always get the little ones asleep before I start snapping away. Even under 14 days old your little one knows they are in a different environment in a studio and this can be distracting and babies fight their sleep time. Some times it took me 2hrs before baby is in a deep enough sleep to carry out the specialised newborn poses. At home in their comfort zone (same smells, noises & warmth) the little one's sleep so much better which is great because I can get more photos & we can work round sleep time!! Plus Mum can stay at home .. I remember how daunting it was leaving the house for the first time as a new Mum!! ... All of these images below were taken in a clients living room. I don't need a massive amount of space. I'm the professional and I can work round this. The editing process also creates more space!!
Prints now start at £35 for a 10x8" ....
I am an Award Winning Newborn Photographer. I have trained to the highest possible standard in Newborn Art. My newborn sessions are £75 are totally unique to you. I always try and use new Props and make every session different so no image is the same. These sessions can take up to 4hrs as newborns are best Photographed asleep (this can be very challenging) but are so worth the 'patience'. You can sit back & relax and I will do all the work. My images are unique and I have my own creative style your paying for me and my expertise and creative vision. The final images are edited to the highest standard for printing and framing. I'm also now doing home visits.
After the session I will go away and edit your images to the highest possible standard and then I'll come back to you and show you your images. This is when you can make your purchases. I will have Frame samples/print samples/book samples and the USB with me when I return. My Price List and Brochure can be downloaded at the top of the page.

Some extra reading explaining the session fee.
The digital revolution has brought amazing flexibility and ability to control various factors during the image taking and making process. Photographers, the hobbyist, the professional, the amateur all benefit from this ability to manipulate pixels. However, with flexibility comes a price. Digital camera equipment is still considerably more expensive when you factor in its’ lifespan, the need for additional resources for processing those images, the time it takes to get a usable image and the effort that goes into creating a work of photographic art.
The cost of TIME
Approaching it from a time standpoint, let’s imagine that you have hired a photographer who has work that you love. This photographer is traveling an hour to your destination this is an example of an outdoor on location shoot to photograph your session. Here is an example of a time break down:
* session prep time (30 mins – 1 hour, includes equipment and back up equipment checks vehicle checks)
* travel time to session
* 30 minutes to set up
*90 minutes-1 hour with client photographing subject
* travel time FROM session
* 30-45 minutes uploading time from digital cards from camera to computer
* 30-45 minutes time spent backing up the original images* Half a day editing time to present you with a diverse gallery of edited images
* 1 hour prep time getting ready for ordering
*1 hour time with client for ordering images
* 1 hour sorting through and checking order
* 30 minutes-1 hour prep time for delivery
* 30 minutes-1 hour getting order shipped
* any additional phone time or time needed for add on ordering, shipment issues, quality issues
In this example, the time spent per client can range from just under 13 hours to 19 hours – dependent on the photographer’s level of service. This is time dedicated only to ONE session. When I charge only £75 (aka SESSION FEE) you are not just paying for the one-two hours of session time, you are paying for my 12-19 hours complete time for your session. All this for £75 is a bargain!
