My name is Joanne and I am a Newborn Photography Specialist based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
Newborn sessions are for babies ideally under the age of 14 days. I know this sounds so young, and like you, (before I began photographing newborns) considered babies to be newborns for their first 8 weeks. But for photography this window is so much smaller.
So why under 14 days?
As soon as your baby is born, they will start to uncurl and with each passing day they will become more awake and stimulated by the world around them. Within the first 10 days, they are at their sleepiest, which is the ultimate and most perfect time to capture these wonderful poses and images. So much is possible within this time frame, and so little after. Sleepy, curly babies is what is best! Giving maximum opportunity for many poses and therefore LOTS of pics for you to get all gooey over for years and years to come.
I have been a professional photographer for 12 years and a fully trained newborn photographer for 6 and throughout these years I have photographed hundreds of beautiful newborn babies, so you are in very safe hands.
Don’t wait until it’s too late!
I can not even begin to share with you, how many parents, who come to me with their older children, express how much they wish they had booked their children in when they were this small. There is so much time later on, but not with newborn photography.
My newborn photography sessions take between 2 and 4 hours, depending on which package is selected and there are different packages available to you.
Being a parent myself – to 3 lovely boys, I appreciate and understand how important safety and hygiene is. The safety of your baby is absolutely paramount and I work hard to ensure that the environment is super clean. From cleaning all props after each use to using a UV disinfectant lamp the previous evening which ensures everything is as clean as possible for you and your baby.
Newborn sessions are also a wonderful experience and a beautiful part of your little one’s journey into the world. Plus … you will most likely, be very tired and this is a nice opportunity for you to sit and relax whilst I take care of your baby and capture those magical photos.
