Newborn Photography Sessions are suitable for babies aged between 5 and 21 days old.
Firstly, huge congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope you're enjoying your journey into parenthood and I can't wait to welcome you to the studio to capture timeless, beautiful portraits that you will treasure forever.
Before Your Shoot
I work differently to most other photographers. Before all of my sessions I chat with my clients (either over the phone or at my studio) and we go over your style, what poses you like and where you envisage displaying your photos. This helps me to plan your session and enables me to shoot purposefully and create a beautiful, bespoke gallery just for you.
How to Book
I book newborns in after their 20 week scan as it’s the only way I can guarantee them a slot. You just need to pay a £99 deposit at the time of booking and this amount will be deducted from your final invoice. Contact me for further information or to book your Newborn Photography Session.
Just For You - Free Hospital Bag Checklist
Preparing your hospital bag can be a little overwhelming so I've put together a handy checklist which covers everything you, your birth partner and your baby will need. You can get it here: Austhorpe Photography Hospital Bag Checklist.
Austhorpe Photography is based in Garforth, Leeds however we have clients travelling from Wakefield, Wetherby, Harrogate, York and beyond for our Newborn Photo Shoot. I am always flexible on shoot times to accommodate your travel requirements so don't let that concern you.
What Happens at a Newborn Photo Shoot
Before you arrive for your shoot, I will be in touch to go over what style of images you are most drawn to. Your newborn shoot is totally bespoke and tailored to you and your tastes so it’s important for me to get an understanding of what type of images you love and what will look beautiful in your home.
At your shoot, I will invite you to sit back and relax while I tend to your baby. The aim is to get your little one full, comfortable and warm and then I can work through a number of poses and create a gallery of images for you to choose from.
Please don’t worry about your baby being unsettled, I have plenty of techniques to help soothe your little one but often they just need a bit of time to relax and fall asleep.
After your shoot, I will edit approximately 20 photos and invite you back to the studio to view your images and place your order.
