We provide bespoke fine art newborn photography from our cosy home studio in Copthorne, West Sussex.
Our primary focus is always on safety, closely followed by quality. We accept a strictly limited number of bookings each month, and our goal for each session is to create a gallery of top quality images that could adorn the walls of any art gallery.
Our globally sourced products are the very best quality available: no cheap copies, no imitations. All printed products are archival quality so they will last for decades without fading and our digital files are full size printable images not the small resized files some photographers supply (which can only be printed at postcard size)!
Our clients are mostly from across the south of England... although we have had customers from as far afield as Dubai and even India! Our clients include new parents from all professions, ranging from teachers to accountants, and even some celebrities and pop stars.
What they all have in common is a desire to capture the most precious fleeting moments of their baby's very first days in a truly beautiful gallery of images that they know they will cherish forever...
Our clients are people who appreciate the finer quality of the outstanding products we offer, and understand the false economy of compromising with an inferior product - something we won't do!
Our images are created to last a lifetime... not just to post a few snaps on facebook (although you can of course do that too)!
Our bespoke newborn portrait sessions are intentionally calm and relaxed. We allow up to 4 hours for our newborn sessions in case baby needs extra time for feeding and cuddles on the day... and for parents, we provide free Wifi and refreshments in the studio.
In order to maintain the highest standards, we limit our newborn sessions to no more than 10 sessions per month.
Our clients love to sit back enjoying the warmth of the studio as they watch us create a gallery of amazing newborn portraits right in front of them. We do encourage parents to also include a few family portraits with their new baby - but this is by no means compulsory. We're happy to include a few images with older siblings if you wish.
All props and accessories are included at no extra charge so we can style the perfect newborn shoot for you.
Looking for a compact session with a fixed price, and don't need a full gallery of images to choose from?
We now offer a selection of mini-session, featuring a shorter shoot time (up to one hour maximum) plus 5 images included at no extra charge. Click here to see more information about all our mini-sessions .
We don't hold with being coy or secretive about pricing. In fact, we want you to know exactly how much all of our products cost before you book with us....
This is why we've produced a full and detailed infopack stuffed with information about all our products and services including full and detailed pricing for every single product... and we'd love to send you a copy to view at your leisure.
We believe that honesty and a top quality service and product is the key to continued success... which is why our previous customers come back to us time and again!
If you are able to, we recommend booking a provisional date for your newborn photography well before your new baby arrives.
This is because the ideal time for newborn photography is just 5-7 days after baby is born - or under two weeks if that's not possible.
During the first two weeks newborn babies are very sleepy and happy to be posed in those super-cute newborn poses you'll see on our website... but very soon after, they will be far less sleepy and more dificult to pose.
It's also common for new babies to develop some minor temporary skin complaints at around 2 weeks old so all in all it's a great idea to get your newborn portraits arranged for sooner rather than later.
We only accept a maximum of 10 standard newborn bookings for each month. This is necessary to ensure that we can also allocate the time we need to edit and retouch every session to the same high standards you'll see here on the website... so it's not always possible to accept bookings at short notice.
But what if baby is early or late?
If you're at all concerned about baby arriving early or late, there's absolutely no need to be. Your initial booking is a provisional date so we know how many bookings we need to make space for that month... and we're more than happy to adjust your actual shoot date if we need to later. Most importantly though, our pre-booked sessions always get priority for any available dates in our booking calendar.
For booking information please see below;
The perfect option if you want just a single session. Includes £100 of studio credit.
We recommend booking your newborn photography while still pregnant so we can allocate a provisional date for your newborn appointment at around 5-7 days after your due date.
If baby arrives early or late we'll be happy to reschedule your session accordingly - but pre-booked newborns always get priority in our diary, so we cannot guarantee availability for late bookings.
If your baby is already born, please select the closest available date or contact us directly.
If you're considering more than a single portrait session (perhaps you'd value some beautiful maternity portraits, or a sitter session, or cake smash for baby's first birthday) we offer our money saving special offer 3 shoot baby plan.
Our baby plan costs £300 to book and includes any 3 portrait sessions (you choose which ones you want) - plus each session includes a £200 studio credit to spend on any products after that session: a total of 3 sessions plus £600 worth of credit for just a £300 initial outlay.
For every pound you invest in buying our optional Advanced Studio Credit we'll give you an extra 10% on top absolutely free.
For example, buy £500 of Advanced Studio Credit and we'll give you an exra £50 worth on top, giving you a total of £550 credit (in addition to your initial booking fee) to spend on whichever products you choose after you've seen your images.
You can buy as much Advanced Studio Credit as you want but this is only available for purchase when booking your session.
Advanced Studio Credit is completely optional but can represent a fantastic saving if you already know roughly what your budget is when you initially book with us.
If you're unsure about anything you've seen on our website or after reading our infopack and would like to visit our studio in person before booking, we'd love to arrange a short no-obligation consultation for you.
In the studio you can also see the superb quality of all our products first hand while we discuss all the various options available over a pretty decent cup of tea or coffee. :-)
We hope to see you soon!
