Your newborn baby will grow up so quickly. Your newborn baby portrait experience will capture the tiny changes which take place in the first few days of your baby’s life. When you book a professional Newborn Baby Portrait Experience for your baby with Steve Ramsden Photography you will capture the earliest memories of your baby now, forever.

About the experience

Your Newborn Baby Portrait Experience will last up to three hours. This gives you plenty of time to change your baby’s outfits and have different backgrounds and looks to your photographs. We will give you lots of images to choose from when you return to view your photographs. You will return to see your newborn baby’s photos approximately one week after your photography session, often much sooner if preferred.

We advise that you allow up to 3 hours for your session overall, to allow for settling in at the studio.  You will also need nappy changes, feed time, and wrapping up at the end. This ensures that you will receive the full value from your booked session, and that we allow plenty of time to take the care we need during your newborn baby portrait experience.

The sessions are held midweek,Tuesday to Friday, 10 am to 5.30 pm, with a latest start time of 2.30 pm.

Classic newborn baby portraits involve your baby whilst they are still naturally curled after birth.  The naturally curled ‘foetal’ position is lost approximately 14 days after your baby’s birth. Therefore it is important to book your photography session with your photographer as soon as possible after the birth.  Even better, book with us before your baby’s birth, and keep in touch as you approach the expected birth date.  We therefore invite you to book your session before your baby’s birth. We understand that we will need to be flexible with the date and time of your booking afterwards.

Questions and Answers

When can we visit?

We are open by appointment 10 am through to 5.30 pm Monday – Friday.  The final session time is 2.30 pm.

How long is the session for?

We will book you in for a three hour session, to allow plenty of times for feeds, nappy changes, clothes changes, etc.   Some babies will photograph very quickly, with very little time needed for changing and feeding, others take longer to settle.  That’s not a problem, it’s all part of the fun! However, especially with newborn baby photography, we will spend all the time we need to secure you some fabulous photographs of your newborn.

Can mum and dad take part in the photography experience?

Yes, that’s not a problem, but the primary focus is on photographing your baby.  For a range of family photographs, for example, I would instead recommend a 2 hour Family Portrait Session.  We can then dedicate more time to to capturing your wider family together with your baby.  This often works better when your newborn is a little older.  Other young members of your family may struggle with the session length needed for newborns.  Family portrait sessions are shorter and more suited to photographing siblings and parents with newborns.

What is the best age for newborn baby photography?

For newborn baby photography, we will achieve the best results when your baby is between 5 and 14 days old, ideally around 10 days old.
