Newborn photography sessions are some of our favorites. We love love their tiny toes and fingers and wispy hair. The best time to do these sessions is when your baby is 5 – 10 days old. Whilst they are so young, they are still pliable, they sleep a lot, and colic and baby acne has not appeared.

We generally book newborn session 5 days after your due date and change them if necessary, babies rarely come when they are expected.

Newborn photography sessions are typically a little longer as we have to work at your newborn’s pace. They average between 2– 4 hours to allow time for feeding, changing and cuddling.  These are lovely, gentle sessions and really special shoots, and are highly encourage them. New parents can also be tired and a bit sore so we don’t want to rush things.

These sessions should be booked as early as possible after your 20 week scan, to ensure your booking and assist us in managing our diary. If however your baby is due fairly soon or already born feel free to call, as we may be able to fit you in. In order to offer our clients the best service possible and because we shoot a lot of newborns and it can be ‘unpredictable’, with having to move things around a little each week; we only allow limited number of sessions per week. To avoid disappointment it is best to book as early as possible.

We recently visited Paul and Kerry at Portraits by Design to have new family photos taken with our new born baby.  Portraits by Design is by far the best photography experience either my wife or I have ever had. It wasn't a chore at all, it was a pleasant and fun experience.

We were greeted by Paul who was extremely welcoming and friendly, he also brought in a photographer called Kerry who specialised in new born photography. Kelly was also fantastic, she knew exactly how to work with new borns, their parents, and was brilliant at calming our daughter and getting amazing poses. While the baby photos were being taken, we parents were made to feel extremely comfortable and provided with tea, hot chocolate and water. We also had time to chat to Paul, he has a deep knowledge of photography and printing photos. It was refreshing that instead of any hard sales techneques, we learned a lot about priting and framing of photos! For example, I had no idea that there were different types of glass which could be used in photo frames!

We were not rushed in anyway, Paul and Kerry took their time with our new born and made us feel totally relaxed during the session. We absolutely love our new photos, Paul and Kerry's knowledge shows in them. We can't wait to get our physical prints and hang them on the wall. Paul was so kind, he even took a photo we sent him of our wall and mocked up what different arrangements of prints would look like!

I will definitely be using Visual Voice again, I could not speak highly enough of them.

Thank you so much Paul and Kerry!
