Discover Your Lifesyle Newborn Photoshoot

Lifestyle Newborn Photoshoot Salisbury

Our lifestyle newborn photoshoots capture the wonder of welcoming a new baby into your family.


Rather than posing, I'll guide you to interact with your new baby naturally while capturing authentic family moments in my pure white Wiltshire newborn studio. These sessions are perfect if you are looking for a simple and emotive style of photography to document this magical time in your family's story.


My mission is to capture the intense emotional connection between you and your new baby, so you will be involved throughout your baby's photoshoot, although not necessary looking at the camera. Using parents' hands in images adds a wonderful sense of tenderness and scale to your images when compared to your tiny newborn baby.


I do of course also photograph your baby on their own as well, documenting all their perfect newborn details - stretching toes, pursed lips, wrinkled brow and tiny fingers - and I always capture at least one shot with everyone looking at the camera. However, most of your White Onesie gallery will be less formal and more emotional; full of tender kisses,  adoring glances and lots and lots of snuggles!

If you're a lover of monochrome like me, lifestyle photoshoot galleries are particularly suited to displaying in black and white, creating a truly timeless record of your baby's first weeks of life.

When should I book my Lifestyle newborn photo shoot?

There is a relatively small window after birth for sleepy newborn photography so I recommend booking in advance while you are still pregnant. In fact, it is best to get in touch as soon as you decide you would like to work with me, and several months before your due date as spaces are limited. To ensure that I can offer my families the highest standards of flexibility and personal service, I only book a set number of newborn sessions each month. It's also one less thing to organise once your baby has arrived.

When is the best time for my Newborn baby to be photographed?

Newborn babies are best photographed between 5 and 21 days old. Once your baby is earth side, those 3 weeks disappear in a flash! The reason for this timeframe is that as babies get older, they uncurl, sleep less, are alert for longer periods during the day. They loose that 'brand new' look that only lasts for a few precious weeks. However,  because White Onesie style sessions are more relaxed than traditional fine art style newborn photography, they are also well suited to older, more awake newborns allowing me to accept bookings for this style of session up to 8 weeks of age. 

What happens if my baby is born early or later than their due date?


My flexible scheduling system means that there is no need to worry about your baby being born on their due date (which is great because statistically they probably won't be!). When you book your newborn session with me, I reserve a flexible space in my diary based on your due date. Once your baby is born we will take into account early/ late arrival, C-section recovery and any other factors to arrange a date for your session within the first 21 days.

how it works

How do I prepare for my newborn photo shoot?

When you choose me as your newborn photographer you will receive your pre-session questionnaire and studio session guide. Your questionnaire helps me to plan your session and gives me important information about your baby including any health conditions.


Your studio session guide explains what to expect when you come to the studio and has tips on how to prepare for your session. 

Everything required for your session is available in my Salisbury newborn studio. All you need to bring with you are your usual baby supplies and plenty of feeds if bottle feeding. I also have spares of most things you might need on hand in the studio including a well stocked changing station and refreshments - especially great coffee!
