I offer a bespoke newborn baby photography service and I am a multi award winning photographer. It’s an unrepeatable time and each newborn session is as unique as your baby. A newborn portrait session is a special and enjoyable moment, and the baby photos become cherished possessions, special keepsakes and beautiful pieces of art to display and show in your homes. I can capture your babies first few days in the comfort of your own home or in in the comfort of my home studio in Plymstock, Plymouth. Visit our newborn baby photography gallery for examples of baby portraits.



When shall we book in for our Baby Photography Session?

Newborn baby photography is best captured within the first 2 weeks of giving birth. Those first weeks are key as your baby will sleep far better which helps as I create those cute squishy poses of your little baby.  Once you pass the two week stage their bodies and bones change, making them harder to pose and they lose the ability to be posed like they were still in the womb when you were pregnant. They are more likely to wake up too, so for those super squishy poses I recommend booking in after your 20 weeks prenatal scan or 3D/4D scan and we can provisionally book your date your session. The date is very flexible and once bay arrives we can secure a more fixed date.


Sessions will be held at my home studio however locations visits can be arrange within Devon and Cornwall, please contact for more details.


What does a Baby Photo Session involve?

The session will probably last 3 to 4 hours in total. Babies need feeding changing and comforting which can’t be rushed, thus making a baby photography session very different to a standard portrait session.

I will start with baby if they are asleep by posing them and trying to get all those posed squishy shots using a variety of props and wraps in with a color scheme that you choose from my selection, I will then move on to using props such as bowls, beds, baskets and much more to give you some variety and super shots, after this siblings and parents are asked to join in to document not just the baby but you all as a family.


How much can I expect to pay?

The newborn baby photography session fee is £249, which includes my minimum digital package payable in advance to reserve your booking.  This covers my expertise, time, along with the professional editing to enhance your images so they are looking there best. Many newborns are prone to a number of skin conditions, dry, flakey and blotchy skin all needing to be removed for the final photograph. Most parents spend £500 per a session.

Ashley Says…

“I love being a Newborn Photographer, capturing any moment is special but capturing your newborn babies to me is so special, those tiny feet, little hands and cute squishy faces makes it very easy to do what I do, giving you forever lasting memories to treasure forever is why I do what I do and I love the reaction i get when handing over great pieces of art that parents can display and show off in there homes.”
