NEWBORN - STUDIO


FIRST MEMORIES

Newborn . . . for just a few short weeks

There is something innately magical about meeting parents with their newborns when they visit my studio.
Often it's their very first outing and the mother is so excited to be out wearing a little make-up and her hair done nicely.

It's such a wonderful but challenging time and I'm here to help you look your best, feel relaxed and calm your baby so we can enjoy creating some wonderful, lasting memories of your precious first few weeks together.

You will look back on this time in awe.

Book a session or chat

A studio photo session can booked with £100 booking fee.

I create a gallery of propped and styled images of your newborn using props like a antique wooden bowl,

painted canvas and wood-effect backgrounds and beautifully coordinated, textured wraps and fabrics.

This is followed by some images of your baby wrapped in muslin fabric and laid on a beanbag covered with soft blankets.

We complete your session with some family portraits of you with your newborn, on a neutral light or dark background.

In the week after your photoshoot, the images will be carefully edited and uploaded to a private gallery for viewing at home.

You may then select a bundle of high resolution digital images to purchase and download.

Prints and framing can also be easily purchased, directly through your gallery.

I also offer baby and family at home sessions, with professional lighting and a minimalist look.

Option to use a few of my props, including textured wraps, fabrics and white linen for your super king/double bed, if you don't have your own.

“We did a newborn shoot with Nicola. She was confident and professional - getting great photos in just a few hours (what you want with a new baby and an older child!) She was happy to look at our Pinterest wish list of photos and recreate some styles we liked.
Photos were delivered very quickly and were amazing - we bought them all because couldn't choose...!
Have already recommended to a friend.”

DETAILS OF A STUDIO NEWBORN SESSION


Your baby should ideally be 5 to 21 days old, when they still have that curled-up, sleepy look and can be most easily swaddled and posed.

If your baby is more than three weeks old, do not worry - it's still possible to do newborn photography in the studio using the bowl and beanbag and lots of lovely textured fabrics. Older newborns once unfurled, are more wriggly and less sleepy, as you know, but I can adjust the poses and, with a bit of patience, we will still get great results!


If you would like a session utilizing all my props then please visit my studio in Stoke Newington N16 9AW. We have off-street parking right outside. There is a generous range of backdrops, baskets, antique wooden bowls and an array of colourful, textured stretch and drapey baby wraps, matching knitted hats and delicate handmade headbands for your baby to wear. See below for all the beautiful colourful props available. All baby wraps are freshly laundered in Eco-Max non bio baby laundry detergent, before and after use, and the studio is kept spotlessly clean.


Allow up to 2 hours for a newborn studio session so we may need to stop for baby-changing and feeding breaks. I use professional Canon cameras and Elinchrom studio lighting. There will be time to create three different looks with your baby, followed by some parent and baby portraiture against a plain background toward the end of the session. Siblings can join the photoshoot for some family shots, but ideally they should be brought in towards the end of the session to guarantee a quiet time during the newborn propped photography. We have Clissold Park with cafe and children's playground only five minutes walk from the studio, where fathers and sibling(s) can spend some time, until we're ready for them to join in

COVID SECURE PRACTICE

There will be restrictions on the amount of people who can come to the studio at one time. The studio will be cleaned before and after each session and all door handles, tables and items you are likely to come in to contact with will be cleaned and wiped with an antibacterial solution. I will wash my hands before and often, avoid hand shaking, and will wear a mask when posing your baby for extra precaution. You will be asked to wash your hands/use hand sanitizer upon arrival at my studio. If you or your partner have been in contact with anyone with a cough or fever or if you feel unwell (even mildly) before your session, please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule.
