Newborn and maternity sessions
Welcoming a newborn baby to your family is so special and in those first few days you will want to absorb every little detail and lock it away to your memory box.
Let me help you tell the story of your baby's arrival with modern lifestyle photos and beautiful picture-perfect portraits of your pregnancy and newborn, all taken in the comfort of your home or a location of your choice.
on your baby news!
Offspring’s newborn and maternity photography sessions are about celebrating all that a new baby brings.
My baby bump photoshoots capture the beauty of mother and baby, and the family that surrounds them. Together sharing the same joys, doubts and fears and preparations for the new arrival. It’s about discovering new responsibilities, emotions and a strong sense of protection.
And when baby arrives their needs are simple. Your days are filled with feeding, cuddling and soothing as you get to know the new arrival to your family. Offspring’s newborn photoshoots take place anytime from 2 days to 12 weeks old, before your baby starts to connect with the wider world by starting to learn to roll, sit and crawl.
I know how treasured these photos will be in the future, which is why I bring modern lifestyle photos with all the family and your own personal newborn studio for beautiful portraits and tiny baby details, to capture the full story of your child’s arrival in the comfort of your own home.

Questions and answers
• How soon can I reserve a maternity and/or a newborn session?
I recommend booking soon after your 20-week scan or at least 2 months before your due date to help guarantee your newborn or maternity session.
Upon booking I take a small deposit and make a note of your due date. When your baby arrives we can then confirm your precise session date and time to suit.
• How many weeks pregnant is ideal for a maternity photo shoot?
There is no set rule on when to arrange your maternity session for but after 25 weeks is generally a good time - ideally when your baby bump is nicely visible and you are still comfortable.
• What age is best for a newborn photo session for my baby?
If you're a first-time parent, it is harder to know when is the best time to hold your newborn photo shoot. Unless you know you would prefer to wait, do it early. You cannot go back in time, while you can ask me to come back at a later date.
Most families have their studio and lifestyle newborn photo sessions in the first two weeks - days 5-8 being the ideal - to capture their baby curled up and sleepy, and before any milk spots appear on their skin at around 2 weeks old.
• Does the newborn session include images with mum, dad, and/or siblings?
My lifestyle newborn sessions is ideal for photos with all the family, including any brand new big brothers or sisters.
If you choose to book a lifestyle and studio session, I am happy to split them over two separate days and weeks apart if preferred.
This is popular option with families larger families - the studio portraits, which focus on your newborn, can be arranged when your older children are in nursery or school and the lifestyle session with all the family can be arranged for a weekend.
• Do you offer first-year baby plans?
Yes. First-year baby plans are a perfect way to capture the different stages of your baby in their first year. I'm happy to arrange an early newborn session, then a session when your baby is around 6-8 months when they are sitting and finally a last one around his/her first birthday.
