BESPOKE NEWBORN SESSIONS

For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you

I am so happy you’re here! Many congratulations on this fascinating new stage of your life - welcoming your new baby!

My studio specialises in creating timeless images and turning them into luxurious photographic products to mark the miracle of welcoming of your baby into your family and building a visual legacy for their future.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEW BABY?

Newborn shoot is best done within first 12 days while baby is still very sleepy, curly, flexible and easy to settle. 

 WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A NEWBORN SHOOT?

I strongly recommend booking your newborn session while still pregnant. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date and pay the deposit to secure your slot. I will then pencil your due date into my calendar and once your baby arrives you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session. Due to limited availability I might not be able to accommodate last minute bookings.

WHERE WILL THE SHOOT TAKE PLACE?

I photograph babies in my newly built studio in Rathmolyon Co. Meath (45 mins from Dublin, 10 mins from Trim). The studio has been custom designed to provide luxurious experience for my families and create the most comfortable environment for my little models.

WHAT KIND OF PROPS DO YOU USE?

I style every session with hand made organic props and accessories with a rustic charm. All props are carefully sourced amongst selected industry vendors. Special requests regards styling are also welcome.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

Newborn photoshoot is entirely baby led and can take up to 3 hours. There's plenty of time for feeding, changing and comforting your baby. It is my priority to keep your baby comfortable and safe and create relaxed and memorable experience for families.

CAN I BRING MY OTHER CHILDREN?

Absolutely, sibling portraits are very important to capture and little children are welcome in the studio. However little toddlers can get unsettled as 3 hours in the heat might be too much for them, so it's a good idea to have these photos taken at the beginning of the session and then have someone bring them away.

ARE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS INCLUDED?

Absolutely! First portraits as a new family are so important, and a part of baby’s visual legacy. I understand it’s hard to get in front of the camera after giving birth but I guarantee that with a little posing and direction these will be become a precious memento in your family.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

By the end of the photoshoot, we'll schedule your personal viewing session/ordering appointment. It's a special dedicated time, where you'll be able to view the gallery of your photographs, choose your package, purchase wall art, albums, or other high end photographic products. We accept cash or card payments. View full range of products here
