Andover Newborn Photographer

style | experience | expertise

Congratulations! This is such an exciting time for your family. As one of the South of England's leading Newborn Baby Photographers, I am delighted to have worked with hundreds of newborn babies and their families to capture this precious time in beautiful newborn art.

All sessions take place in my cosy studio in the pretty village of Stratford sub Castle near the Hampshire/ Wiltshire border which is perfectly placed to serve families throughout the Andover and the Test Valley. The ideal timeframe for newborn photography is within the first 3 weeks, although it is possible to achieve sweet sleepy images up to around 6 weeks of age. In order to offer all my clients the high level of customer experience that I do, I am only able to accommodate a limited number of newborn bookings per month, so I recommend to book by around the time of your 20 week scan to ensure availability for your due date.

"Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish!"

"Communication beforehand was brilliant and she was professional and made our baby very calm during the shoot. The photos are perfect! I would 100% recommend and we will definitely be going back for more photo shoots!"

Baby Arthur's Mummy & Daddy

Those first family photographs are so important! That's why our signature newborn sessions include family and sibling images as well as portraits of your baby on their own. Our beautiful studio is fully equipped with everything you will need for your session from wraps, outfits and props to nappies, coffee and snacks. It really is a home from home and the perfect oasis for tired new parents. I understand that leaving home for the first time with your newborn can be daunting, so rest assured that your visit to the studio will be relaxing and stress-free. Families I work with enjoy the opportunity to sit back, pause and take in all the details of the amazing little human that they have made. Some even manage to take a nap!


Following your session, you'll return to the studio within two weeks (or we can catch up on Zoom) for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is when you will see your beautiful images for the first time and choose your Heirloom Box and image collection. This is my favourite part of the process! I love to see the look on parent's faces when then see their gallery for the very first time. We also have a selection of high quality wall art, albums and prints available to order in the studio.

To find out more about working with me and to receive a brochure and current availability, please get in touch. I am always delighted to chat about my newborn work and would love to speak to you.
