Your Newborn & Baby Photographer Nottingham

Baby Photoshoot

In the blink of an eye your baby has changed, or so it seems and you will never have that moment again. Each baby is different, each one an individual in their own right, unique and perfect. 

The magic is in capturing those glimpses of their personalities, those quiet moments of love and wonder between you and your child.  This is why I offer a mixture of formal, posed images in addition to relaxed shots within my newborn baby photoshoots.

Newborn photography is a specialism like no other. I have completed specialist newborn photography training with some of the best photographers in the world.  I have an ongoing commitment to refresh my knowledge and experience regularly to ensure your child’s safety. You need to be sure your baby is in the safest of hands. 

My boutique Nottingham photography studio is perfectly designed with newborn photography in mind. Close to Mansfield, the M1 and train and tram links, there is free parking available and a warm welcome to you and your baby when you arrive for your photoshoot.


Debbie has photographed both my children in newborn shoots – she has done the most fantastic job and we are delighted with the results. She is brilliant with babies and older children and would 100% recommend her work. She listens to what you want as the client. Really enjoyed both shoots and looking through all the photos with her…. was just hard deciding which photos we wanted as all so good! Helen


You can book your baby’s photoshoot at any time during your pregnancy.  I would recommend booking from your 20 week scan point, so we have time to book you into my schedule for our pre consultation.

Baby is in charge and inevitably will arrive when they want to, so I do build in some flexibility with photo session dates. Ideally the photo session should be scheduled for between 5-14 days post birth.  By then baby will have established a feeding pattern, but still be very sleepy so we can achieve those beautiful curled up poses.

There are a few things you can do prior to your baby’s photoshoot, which may help us get the most out of our time and ensure baby is comfortable and happy. Happy baby = great photographs!

Food (especially if breast-feeding) – Some foods may react with baby’s digestive system so it would be best to avoid these for 2 days prior to the photo session (this is not an exhaustive list):
Acidic foods, such as lemons, oranges, berries, pizza, spaghetti, chilli and tomato products, gassy vegetables, such as asparagus, garlic, onions, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.

Activity – We need baby as relaxed and sleepy as possible so try and keep baby active and awake for the 1-2 hours prior to the photo session.

Feed – One of the best ways to relax baby is to ensure they have a nice full tummy. So make sure you feed baby no more than 15 minutes prior to the session.

Warmth – We recommend around 85 degrees temperature, as baby will be naked during the photo shoot. Babies lose body temperature very quickly and it is important the location is kept at a stable, warm temperature. When you are come to the studio baby should be wearing a nappy and wrapped in blankets to keep warm. We would advise those attending the session to dress in layers, as it can become hot!

Baby – For the majority of the photo session baby will be naked. I have a number of props and outfits for newborns to wear during their photo session. However, if there is a special prop or ‘look’ you would particularly like to have I would be happy to discuss this with you prior to the photo session so I can ensure my colour combinations are complimentary.

Parents/Siblings – We would recommend that outfits for parents/siblings are kept to neutral colours. We would also recommend that outfits do not have logos, strong prints and that colours compliment eachother.

For Baby – Bring enough milk for extra feeds if you bottle feed and your usual wipes and nappy supply. 

Snacks/Drinks – We are happy to provide tea/coffee and water, but would advise you to bring any snacks or specific drinks you would like with you, especially if you have baby’s siblings with you.

Entertainment – Please bring plenty of quiet entertainment for siblings. Tablets or portable DVD with headphones work well.

Dummies/Pacifiers – Please bring a couple with you, as they are ideal for the purpose of keeping baby settled for the few hours we have them to get that beautiful image. Please be assured that babies do not get attached to them after our session nor do they cause nipple confusion as it is for such a short period of time.

Baby will have a poo or a wee! This is completely normal and nothing to worry about. All of our props are washed prior to every use in non bio detergent and we always make sure we have backups!

Baby will cry. Again, this is completely normal, what is important is that the atmosphere remain calm and soothing for baby and parents, so try and relax as much as possible. 

Siblings should be photographed during the first hour of the session. After this arrangements should be made to take them home or take them out for a walk or a play in the park whilst the rest of the session continues. This is to ensure the smooth running of the session and to make sure we can concentrate the remainder of the session on capturing those precious memories of your newborn.
