Squishy, curly and sooo comfy! I love to let newborns pose themselves.. baby led posing. No props, no fancy poses and no OTT editing. Precious newborns just as they are, photographed at home.

48 Pictures Of Newborn Babies That Will Melt Your Heart Away

Lifestyle newborn photography is the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. During these sessions, we will capture your family in a way that you can look back on and remember how you really were. Siblings do great in this situation as well, allowing us to capture authentic moments. No posing, just gentle and relaxed direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur.

Last week our 7 day old baby, Oliver, had a photo session with Sophie. We have to say the experience was fantastic from start to finish, as she was professional, friendly and really easy to work with. Being a mother herself meant that she knew exactly how to deal with Oliver and she made sure he was comfortable throughout.
We were absolutely delighted with the pictures we received, they are wonderful and will soon be up on display at home. Our friends and family were also blown away by the results.
We would thoroughly recommend Sophie to anyone considering having their new-born’s pictures taken. Thanks!

My photoshoots are calm and incredibly relaxed, we will work around baby’s needs. Allowing plenty of time for feeding, changing and soothing. These at home sessions are also ideal as baby can be awake or asleep, I love to capture those heart warming expressions, as well as the adorable asleep shots.

After having a baby it’s expected for your home to not look how you would want it to! But please don’t let that put your off booking a lifestyle photoshoot, I am a pro in making my photography scenes look immaculate! With beautiful natural light, styling advice prior to shoot day and your beautiful baby, we will capture stunning images that you will cherish and keep forever.
