Holland Park Newborn Photography W11 and W8

How your Newborn Photography session in Holland Park W11 would work

Photographing newborn babies in their first few days are some of the most incredible moments I have had as a baby and family photographer and I’d love to visit you in Holland Park to photograph your family. I’d visit you and we would spend a lovely morning together recording those special first days with your new baby.

My work is all about documenting these early moments in as natural a fashion as possible, I don’t use props in my pictures and work instead to create images that will be filled with memories for you. You can look back on the pictures and remember all the tiny details – the glances between parents as they look at their newborn baby ‘this is AMAZING, look at our new family!’ the looks often say. I like to document how you sit with your baby and the way the light falls on your nursing chair by the window or how your baby holds daddy’s finger as they are rocked to sleep after a feed. It’s these elements that make photographs special and which will bring back so many memories for you as the years pass.

Where we take the Photographs – At your home or outside in Holland Park

Working in your home means that you are surrounded by all the things that are special to you. Your furniture and interior design will add character to your photographs and also being at home makes for a relaxed and stress free photo shoot. Your baby will be completely comfortable at home and we can work around their needs as we take photographs – lots of feeding is par for the course on newborn photo shoots and I only do one shoot in a day so there will never be any rush or pressure on your baby to perform.

If the weather is nice we can perhaps venture out for a few photographs in stunning Holland Park, which is such a beautiful location. It’s nice to add a few outdoor images to a collection of photographs if the weather is kind and you can see how I incorporate indoor and outdoor images in my newborn sessions both on the newborn photography gallery in the main section of the website and also in the newborn section on the blog which showcases a number of images from individual sessions to give a really good feel for the pictures you can expect.

How much does it cost?

I charge a session fee, which is £395 during the week or £495 on weekends and bank holidays. This covers my time on the day and the time spent preparing your images for your viewing session. At your viewing session, you can choose what you would like to order and I offer a wide variety of beautiful options. My unframed prints are £65 up to 12″ x 8″ in size and we have a minimum order of ten. Framed prints are from £275, my stunning albums start at £995 and a disk of digital files is included in all orders over £1,995. You can find a full price list here.

Book your Newborn Baby and Family Portrait session now

The ideal time for your newborn baby photography session is within the first fortnight when they are still tiny and new. Most people book their session in before their baby is born to be sure of a spot in the diary and of course I can move the session forward or back if necessary as babies don’t often arrive exactly on time. Equally, if your baby is already with you then do get in touch and I will do my very best to fit you in.
