YOU ARE EXPECTING - CONGRATULATIONS!
Professional photographs are life-affirming and a celebration of the love for your baby, for you and your family. 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!
I encourage parents and siblings to be photographed with the baby.
HIRING A SPECIALIST
It's impossible 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.
WHEN TO BOOK
During the first week of your newborn's life, you are tired, trying to settle into a routine, learning to feed, and trying to sleep, it's easy to forget to book and miss out.
Don't worry, you can book ahead and 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 when they are used to being folded up in the womb and sleep better. I can photograph a Newborn style session for babies up to 6 weeks old. Some poses and props for bigger newborns will not be safe or comfortable for your baby, so we shoot something different.
I urge parents to book and pay for their sessions when pregnant.
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
