Newborn Portraiture

Nobody wants to forget those tiny perfect toes, soft skin, fluffy hair, and that swirly crown. The way they sleep, pout and yawn will disappear, and regretfully, so will our memory! Professional photographs are life-affirming and a celebration of the love for your baby, for you and your family.
I encourage parents and siblings to be photographed with the baby.


It's not possible to take some of these portraits without specialist posing, equipment and photography skills.

I am well practised and trained to handle newborns. I also have experience with tiny babies born prematurely, twins and babies with a condition, like a cleft palate, Down syndrome, and complications resulting from a difficult birth. Individual physical limitations and sensitivities are taken on board during the session. I am always patient, and I expertly soothe your baby with tried and tested techniques that will keep your baby comfortable and safe throughout. I only shoot when I am well, and I am fully vaccinated against all childhood diseases; hand- sanitiser is always used.


I urge parents to book and pay for their sessions when they are pregnant.

During the first week of your newborn's life, you are trying to settle into a routine, learning to feed, and trying to sleep.

Booking ahead will ensure that I am available when your baby arrives, and they will fit into props and be safe and comfortable in all poses. I set aside two dates in my diary around your due date, and should we need a third option for a super late or early baby, I will accommodate you. Newborns are photographed between 5-12 days old.

You have "Package Freedom," which means there are no included digitals files in the session fee.

You can choose to pay for any number of digital files after your session, as well as prints and wall art.

You can also opt to purchase five high-resolution images at a discounted rate of only £200 when you pay for them before your session, with upgrade options available after your session.

Adding your favourite five is ideal if the session is a baby shower gift or you only want a few digitals.

Upgrades can include more digital files, from one to thirty, wall art in many sizes and satin lustre prints from the à la carte menu you decide during your viewing and ordering appointment.

* Digital files are modern negatives. The jpeg soft copy files are used online or in your local photo lab to create your prints, photobooks and wall displays, and they can be printed as many times as you like.

After The Session

I carefully select up to 30 of the best images, and over a few days, I edit them in Photoshop to make everyone look well-rested.
I back up the files for safety and then create a video slideshow.

Approximately two weeks after your photoshoot, you will be invited to see the images and product options at my home studio. I will help you choose your favourite portraits and decide how you would like to enjoy them in the future. You can browse all the products, and then I will create mock-ups of the images in your favourite products to help you decide what to order.
I take payment for orders on the day. Payment plans are available as well.


Digital and printed products are separately priced in an À La Carte menu and can be chosen after seeing your portraits. "Package Freedom" allows you to choose what you want after seeing your portraits, then you can decide what products to buy! I find my customers prefer this flexibility because everyone wants something different. Typically customers spend between £495-£2550 on products, respectively. Check out my best sellers. From £250

I am the only photographer in South Wales that can supply you with the beautiful and exclusive displays of handcrafted wall art from the
and CLASSIC or VINTAGE Style frames, that will complement any home décor.

Cardiff Newborn Photographer | To say that Lorna is talented is an absolute understatement. We are so pleased with the photographs that were taken, Lorna captured so many perfect shots of our newborn baby. She was so gentle and caring whilst managing to manipulate our son into the cutest positions. We would highly recommend Lorna to anyone looking for excellent quality photos and we will definitely use her again in future. Lorna was so welcoming and made us feel at home at her studio. Really couldn't wish for a better shoot. - Laura Williams
