Newborn Photoshoot

Celebrate the arrival of your newborn baby

The arrival of your new baby is the most magical time – those tiny fingers and toes, a glimpse of their beautiful eyes as they lay in your arms – a time of complete love. The first few weeks you spend with your baby will fly by in a blur. If you’re suffering from lack of sleep it may feel like you’re floating in a bubble. Before you know it those precious first few weeks will have passed.

Your Newborn  Photoshoot is the perfect opportunity to capture this special time with beautiful photographs. Babies change so quickly, week by week, so it’s wonderful to capture photographs of them as early as possible. Ideally you should book your session to take place during the first two weeks of your baby’s life. At this time baby will be sleepy and very comfortable as we create the photograph poses. 

After around three weeks old your baby may start to wake and stretch out more which makes posing a little more challenging – but not impossible!

Your first few weeks with your baby may be an emotional, stressful and tiring time. We totally understand that so we aim to make your Newborn photoshoot as relaxing as possible. Take the opportunity to sit back and relax for a little while whilst we soothe, settle and pose baby to create the most beautiful photographs for you to cherish forever.

What to expect from your newborn photoshoot

We realise that you may not be feeling your best after baby arrives, however the ideal time to capture their newborn images is during their first ten days. Our newborn photographer  will be on hand to soothe and settle your baby during your newborn baby photoshoot so that you can hopefully sit back and relax and watch.

Your Newborn Baby Photoshoot will usually take around two hours. This includes spare time for you to feed, settle and change your baby. Sessions may be a little longer or shorter depending on baby’s mood! We never rush a newborn session as patience is key to capturing beautiful baby portraits.

We will begin the session with some lovely family photographs including parents along with older brothers, sisters and pets if you would like. You are welcome to bring personal, meaningful items such as baby’s first toys, personalised blankets or any other special mementoes.
During the Newborn  Photoshoot we will gently place your baby into position on our selection of handcrafted baby prop sets, before ending with those extremely cute baby nude portraits that are hugely popular


Your Viewing Session

After the session we will invite you to return at a mutually convenient time, around one week later, to view your images and decide on your favourites.

Viewing takes place in our relaxing private gallery room where you will see a slideshow of your beautiful photographs. Baby is very welcome to join you as you browse through the beautiful images and reflect on your already changing child.

You can bring your family members along with you so that you can make decisions together and they can help to entertain baby whilst you choose. You will be given plenty of time to decide.

We are specialists in creating bespoke artwork to suit any family or home and are happy to advise on frames, mounts and different styles available. We will take the time to help you to create an outstanding piece of art for your home or the perfect gift for a loved one.

We recommend you book your Newborn Baby Photoshoot for when your baby is around ten days old (if possible). We allow spaces in our calendar each week for these sessions as they obviously can’t be booked too far in advance. All we ask is for you to call us when baby has arrived so that we can book your photo session for the following week

Try to choose baby outfits that fit your baby well and bring spare clothes in case of accidents.

Cathryn Boyer


I contacted Studio 1 via their website regarding a newborn photoshoot. Emma contacted me less than 24 hours from enquiring and a shoot was organised for when my baby was 10 days old. Both Emma and Ashley were very friendly and welcoming.

On arrival, the studio was clean and modern but with a rustic feel. I hate having my photo taken but Ashley made me feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera.

I am very pleased with the final product and so happy that I chose Studio 1 to capture those precious memories. They offer a excellent quality service at very reasonable prices.

I would highly recommend.

After a recent visit to the studio for a photo session. We were greeted by a young lady with a friendly and helpful attitude and great smile. We were offered drinks and made to feel welcome why we relaxed and awaited our session.

The session was really professional and the photographer did really well to engage and entice my children to be natural and amazing. The pictures were processed and edited it a swift and professional manner and upon our return the viewing was conducted professionally and in a smart setting, must note loved the use of the tv to view the images on.

The wide selection of images made choosing almost impossible. Highly recommend and will be visiting again soon. Thank you.

Had two different photoshoots done by Ash and been really pleased each time first was a family one at the studio and 2nd was just recently of mine and my new hubby’s wedding day. The studio is lovely and feels so relaxed. Ash is just amazing at what he does, easy to get along with and you can tell he loves his job.

Waiting on my wedding photos but I know I’ll love them as I loved our family shoot.
