Full Newborn Session
There is nothing as special in life as when a new baby comes into this world. One part of my job that I love, is getting to see new parents with their brand new babies…. the pure love and joy is totally infectious! It’s my job to freeze that special time for you – it’s such a precious time, but a time that goes by in the blink of an eye.
A newborn portrait session with Precious Pixels, captures your baby in timeless portraits. We have a wide range of beautiful handmade props for your little one. We love to capture all the different relationships in the family with adorable shots with Mum and Baby, Dad and Baby, siblings and baby – and of course family group shots too.
We will discuss colour schemes, styles and sets – whether you want to have a themed set with props or keep it all natural shots of just baby….it’s totally up to you.
These images will be something you will treasure for years to come. Your Son or Daughter will treasure them when they have grown and they will be passed down through their children and generations to come.
They are an investment….something your family will have forever.
I would be honoured to be trusted in capturing these wonderful moments for you.

When to book your newborn session…
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies can be a little harder to settle making is more difficult to get the desired poses. We completely understand due to different circumstances If your unable to book or get to the studio when your baby is under 2 weeks therefore photographing a baby older than 2 weeks is not a problem, with experience we just have to highlight to parents that older babies may drift off to sleep but in some cases they may be wide awake and very aware and may take a little longer to settle in positions for photos but don’t worry, we can still capture your baby’s beautiful tiny features regardless, we just have to make you aware. We can book newborn babies in between 0-6 weeks new. I advise booking in your newborn session when still pregnant from your 12 week scan.
What to bring to your session...
Bring plenty of nappies, wipes, bottles of formula if bottle feeding, dummy (if baby has one), blankets, along with any other items you wish to be included in your baby’s photo shoot. Most photographs are taken without clothing, but don’t hesitate to bring special items such as accessories or blankets etc you would like baby to wear. Props such as scan photos can used in photos too if you wish. Also bring a change of clothing for your self as accidents can happen and plenty of snacks for the duration of the session.
How long will the session take? ...
Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting, and studio set ups.
Can Parents & Siblings be in the photos? ...
Absolutely, Parents and siblings photos can be taken during your newborn sessions. After (Young) siblings have been photographed, we do suggest that your partner takes them for a walk/ to the playground / take them back home or to grandparents, as the length of the session (up to 3 hours) is not the best for children to stay patient in. They simply will be bored and we like the studio to be a calm environment for baby. If older siblings are at school a weekend appointment will be offered.
