Somerset Newborn and Baby photography

It's an honour to capture those early days of a new babies life. The expressive little fingers and toes, the wispy hair and the perfect little sleepy faces, my style highlights the beautiful features that define your baby. I gently pose and light newborn subjects to create natural, beautiful and unique portraits that will be cherished for a life time.

What is the best age to photograph newborns?

Newborns should be photographed between 5 - 14 days old if possible. During this time they retain some of the natural curl from before they were born. They are often more sleepy and flexible and happier to have clothes changed. It's a good idea to book an appointment while you are still pregnant, we can always adjust the time if needed when baby arrives.

For older babies, expect less of the curly sleepy poses and less clothes/wrap changes. Photographs will show the babies character, sometimes they are happy to be wrapped, and all will enjoy cuddles with mum and dad.

Every session is unique to your child. Sessions are slow paced with lots of feeding and soothing. It’s not unusual for a newborn session to take upwards of 3 hours, however, I am sometimes able to capture enough images and complete the session in about 2 hours. My studio is private and comfortable place for mum's and dads to relax, plus and there's a good supply of tea, coffee and biscuits if you've been suffering from sleepless nights!

Once your shoot is booked I will keep in touch and send you my 'What to Expect' guide and tips to help you get the most from your session.

As a mum of two, I understand how important it is to know that you and your baby will be safe and comfortable during the shoot.  I would throughly reccommend that you pop in to the studio to meet me and talk through the kind of photography that you like and be reassured that you and your newborn will be in a safe pair of hands. But in the meantime ... here are some kind words from my clients:

"We recently had a newborn shoot with Deborah and we honestly could not praise her enough. She was so good with our daughter, had some amazing ideas for creative and artistic shots but also listened to what we wanted. The studio has a very relaxed feel and Deborah went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, offering us cups of tea and allowing time for changes/ feeds between shots. The end gallery was just wonderful.The photos were better than we had ever expected! Simply stunning. Thank you again Deborah for being so lovely, patient and professional!"   Natalie Burton
"We had a photo shoot with our three week old daughter. Deborah was brilliant with her! So patient and really took the time to find out what we wanted from the shoot. Deborah was brilliant at keeping our daughter calm and relaxed and we have some gorgeous photos that really capture our baby girl's character. The hardest part was choosing the photos at the end as they're all so cute! Would definitely recommend!"   Charlotte Thompson
