Surrey Newborn Photography

No need to tidy the house or declutter the bedside table, because my newborn sessions take place in my purpose built studio in Esher.

 

As a baby photographer in Surrey, I realise it can be overwhelming leaving the house with a newborn in those first few weeks, so I always have supplies of anything you might need, nappies, wipes, muslins. I also have caffeine and cake to give you a little boost, if needed.

 

I start off by wrapping baby nice and snug, to ensure they feel secure and relaxed. I then place them on my newborn baby bean bag and gradually unwrap baby, step by step. At each stage there is an opportunity for parents to be involved with a gentle kiss, or holding of a hand. I then move on to the authentic newborn images capturing whatever your baby wants to do – a stretch, a yawn and of course, capturing those amazing tiny new feet. There will be no silly outfits or unnecessary props, just pictures of your baby and all those amazing details you won’t want to forget. We then take pictures with parents and any siblings, which is always one of the most special parts of my newborn sessions.

 

The session lasts between 2-3 hours, but sessions are never hurried, and all babies are different. We allow lots of time for cuddles and feeds. The ideal time for a newborn photoshoot is between 5-14 days of a baby being born, however, we can still get you some great pictures after this time. It is best if you book in for your newborn shoot right after your 20 week scan. This way I can book out a few slots around your due date, to make sure I always have space for you, whether your baby comes early or late!

 

 

My session fee, taken at the time of booking, is £95 on a weekday and £125 at the weekend and includes:

"Rachel had lots of fantastic ideas about how to get the best pictures of our son Lucas, and was great at reacting to the unpredictable moments that naturally occur with a newborn baby. These moments actually resulted in some brilliant pictures! Crucially, when the photoshoot was interrupted, because Lucas needed feeding or comforting, we weren’t made to feel like it was a race against the clock.  Rachel’s patience and calming demeanour continually shone through."
