Newborn 3+ weeks?
Have you been looking for photographs of your Newborn but cannot find anyone to do it? Maybe you have been turned away because your baby is now “too old”. For whatever reason, maybe you were poorly after the birth or you just didn’t think about it. There are lots of reasons you haven’t booked in your baby for their first photo shoot. For this reason, I have set up these sessions.
Suitable for babies between 3 and 8 weeks they still capture the newness of them that you want to cherish forever, but in a shorter session. Sessions last around an hour and are much more informal than a classic Newborn session. As baby gets bigger they uncurl and so some of the Newborn images you may see start to become unachievable. Please remember that every baby is different so they may or may not be achievable with your little one. The mini sessions are very relaxed and follow the natural instinct of your baby.
SOMETIMES, the smallest things
take up the MOST room in your heart
What a fantastic experience we had with Carli! My wife and I sat back, just what we needed after a few nights of minimal sleep, while Carli did all of the work to capture some stunning photographs of our little girl. She has a natural talent to produce beautiful shots as well as keeping our baby relaxed. If you are thinking of getting new born pictures with Carli to cherish-then do!Brendan - St. Albans
Your Newborn session is very special and unique. It is a very calm and relaxing place to be. There is lots of laughing, nurturing and cuddles.
The studio is set up so all you have to do is come along with your beautiful baby. Everything will be provided for you, including stressless chairs for your comfort and a nice hot cup of tea or coffee.
The studio is secluded so if you’re not feeling up to getting dressed on that particular morning, you could turn up in your pyjamas if you want to – you wouldn’t be the first!!
As special and exciting as this time is, as a mum myself, I completely understand your concerns about handing your brand new baby over to someone for a couple of hours whilst they create images for you to treasure forever. That is why it is important to always be in continuous training to ensure you receive the safest practices and best images. Since starting, I have photographed over 500 babies in the 7 years since starting Newborn photography.
Please watch our video for a glimpse into what happens at a newborn session.
There are midwives that come in and check the studio and last year I gained the Newborn safety certification from the Master Photographers Association. Being only the 4th in the country to do so and the very first in Hertfordshire. I am also very proud of having received a Licentiate Qualification which requires a panel of judges to assess the level of work produced and am now a Fully Qualified Master Photographer. I am also a Pro Banpas member which means my work has been assessed for quality, and am one of only a handful of photographers in the UK to have been appointed as an Ambassador for the organisation, which promotes safety and excellence in Newborn Photography.
From all this, you can see that I take your baby’s safety very seriously, with a tonne of experience and the knowledge to know exactly what to do in a variety of situations. This experience will be one where you can sit back and relax knowing your baby is in safe hands. Please see this post about Newborn Safety
