Newborn baby photography in halifax, leeds, bradford, Huddersfield, west yorkshire


I just love photographing newborns. It's such a special time for you as a parent, yet this extremely short phase really does disappear in a matter of weeks, and there's no getting it back. Capturing the details of your newborn will mean that you'll always have a reminder of just how tiny and perfect they were at the very start of their journey in life. Their little button nose, and tiny fingers and toes won't last for long, and you only have one chance to capture them before they change forever - don't miss it!

My newborn photography aims to capture your beautiful baby just as they are. My own preference is for the more natural poses, and I have a selection of setups, with a choice of wraps and other subtle accessories to enhance your images. I really believe though that your baby should be what these images are all about, and your shoot isn't just a chance for me to show off my prop and accessory collection! Of course, it's totally up to you on the day what you'd like to use and the posing style you prefer.

Your baby's safety and comfort is my absolute number one priority. Before going into business I undertook safety and posing training from one of the UK's leading newborn trainers. I'm proud hold a certification from the Academy of Newborn Photography, and be a Qualifed member of the Guild of Newborn and Baby Photographers. The Academy of Newborn Photography certification required me to take specific safety training, and you can read more about it here.

The studio is based on a smallholding just outside Halifax, and is a dedicated space in my home. Dating back to the 17th century, it benefits from an exposed stone wall and floor which are unique and make great backdrops for your images. Enjoy a selection of backdrops, setups and props in a lovely relaxed and warm environment.

Step One Booking.png

The best time to photograph newborns in the studio is between 5 and 14 days old* as at this time they are still asleep a lot during the day and they don't mind too much being posed in lovely curled up positions.


Therefore it's best to get book your session well before your baby is born, ideally just after your 20 week scan, to ensure availability during the first two weeks of their life.


At this point we'll pencil in a date based on your due date which can be confirmed when your baby arrives. *It is possible to get some beautiful photos after this time though, and I offer studio sessions up to around 12 weeks old, so please don't hesitate to get in touch even if your baby has already arrived.

Deposit £95.png

A deposit of £95 is payable upon booking to secure your newborn shoot.

It is redeemable against any Package or Collection at your viewing appointment, and my newborn packages start at £250.

Step Two Consultation.png

Ideally before your baby is born, we'll have a chat over the phone to discuss your preferences for your images and I'll let you know what to expect on the day of your shoot. This is a great opportunity to say hello before your shoot, and you can ask any questions you like about anything to do with your shoot, your viewing appointment or my Packages & Collections.

step 3 your session.png

You'll arrive at my warm & welcoming studio on the morning of your shoot, and I will create some beautiful images of your baby in line with your preferences and choices of backdrops, props and accessories.

Your newborn session will be really relaxed, and totally baby-led, with plenty of time for breaks for you to feed, burp, and cuddle your baby whenever he or she needs it. The sessions last up to four hours, and as I never photograph more than on baby a day, we'll never have to rush. At all times your baby's comfort and safety is my number one priority, and the session will be tailored to the positions and setups your baby finds most comfortable.

While I'm working with your baby, you can relax in the calm environment on the sofa and enjoy light refreshments. It's even been known for a parent to nod off every now and again during the shoot!

Step four viewing.png

Usually 2-3 weeks after your shoot, I'll invite you back to the studio to view your finished gallery. First you'll enjoy an HD slideshow, and your images will be presented as 6x4 prints to help you decide on your favourites.

During your viewing you can browse my studio samples, and I can assist offer advice on the size and arrangements of images for products, and which images work well together for example.

Your viewing appointment is not a high-pressure sales event - that's just not my style. You may already know which Collection or Package you'd like, or you may prefer to wait until you've seen your images and know how many you can't live without - it's just up to you.

step 5 delivery.png

Your chosen Package or Collection will be quality-checked by myself and sustainably & beautifully wrapped.

In the vast majority of cases, your items will be hand-delivered by me at a time to suit you.
