Newborn Photoshoots

"A grand adventure is about to begin..." Winnie the Pooh 


There’s no bigger blessing than introducing a new baby into the family. If you’re becoming a parent, preparing for the birth of a child is a magical and blissful experience. We assure you that whilst you relax Nicola and team work their magic to create incredible images of your baby’s first days. Booking a new born art photo shoot is the perfect way to celebrate and get amazing images to cherish for years to come.

We carefully wrap and swaddle the baby into cute little poses, transitioning around a variety of props. This is done safely whilst  baby is very sleepy. During the session there is plenty of time to feed, change and settle. If your baby is older we can still offer a new born style shoot, with soft knits and textures, but we use different techniques and sets, giving amazing results.


We stock a vast range of props for your shoot, from naturals, monochromes, pastels and bold mean we have styles to suit every taste. All we ask for you to bring is a named keepsake or soft toy we can use in a set.   

You can also include your older children and partner by arrangement. Younger children can be tricky and we will need to plan the time right. We understand for new parents the last thing they maybe thinking after months of expecting is to have their photo taken, we also know the regret some parents feel if they don’t picture together in their gallery.



Ideally you should contact us after your 12 week scan to book using your due date. During the early days and up to 21 days of life, babies are more likely to settle easier after a feed and can be placed carefully in poses which is not possible when they grow. 


Our professional photographers take time to consult with you to select the colours for your shoot, from naturals, monochromes, pastels and bold mean we have styles to all tastes. Our specially trained team are first aid trained and skilled in using  props, wraps and items designed for a new born shoot. The session is ‘baby led’ giving plenty time for feeding, settling and changing. 

“Nicola was absolutely fantastic during our newborn photoshoot. Our daughter was a week old and before arriving I was quite apprehensive that she may not settle. However, from the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and reassured. It was obvious how much experience Nicola had with young babies as she was brilliant with settling our daughter, meaning my husband and I could sit back and relax. We got some beautiful images and some family ones which we love too. Couldn’t recommend enough! The whole team are fantastic”

“Went to Nicola Bald for a newborn photo shoot. Unfortunately my baby took a long time to settle but the staff were amazing. They were so patient and kind it was lovely. The sets were beautiful and they were very professional. I would definitely recommend to others.”
