Newborn Photo Shoot

The first few days of your babies life are so precious and go by so fast, once these details have been captured you have them forever. I love to capture their tiny toes and their button nose, pouting lips and sometimes even a smile


Newborn Photo are best taken when baby is between 5-14 days old. This is when baby sleeps well and still curls up in those newborn curly sleep positions like they were in mummy's tummy. I specalise in a more natural, baby led style of Newborn photography. 



I do also offer sessions for older Newborns between 3-10 weeks old, these sessions are all about baby, they are not posed they are natural more lifestyle images.

My Newborn sessions are relaxed, designed to put new parents at ease. My aim is to keep your baby warm, comfortable and most importantly safe.


I am fully training in Newborn safety and have plenty of experience comforting babies having had my own children.


I love to include parents in the session but if you are not ready for this (I know you are not feeling your best after just having a baby with sleepless nights, I don't think I brushed my hair for the first couple of days after having my little girl!) I will use hands and close up cuddles.  


Once you have decided you want to know more, we will schedule a consultation (in person at my studio, over the phone via Zoom or by email. During the consultation we will discuss your shoot requirements and detailed pricing information. We will also discuss wardrobe and final products to complement your home. There is a £95 booking fee to pay, this includes the time for the shoot, use of props & fabrics, full editing of you final images this is then deducted from your final collection cost.

Mel done both a maternity and newborn photoshoot for us she is highly skilled an gives a 1st class service. She is very relaxed, welcoming, patient and supportive and instantly puts you at ease, which was ideal for us as it was our for proper journey out as new parents. We highly recommend her if you want to capture those very valuble moments so you can cherish them forever

Emily Francesca Constantinides

We had such a lovely experience with Mel and were so happy with the photos she captured during our newborn shoot. Mel was so patient with us and baby - who needed lots of feeding and changing throughout the morning. She just took things at his pace and made the whole experience really comfortable!

Mel was fantastic with our little boy and the photos were amazing! Would highly recommend booking up the newborn photoshoot! Priceless!!
