Newborn Photography Session
“Newborn Photography is so special for me. Every Child is a different kind of Flower and all together make this World a Beautiful Garden”
Words can not express the joy of new life
The most precious time in your family’s life. Preserved in a natural, strikingly beautiful collection of images that you and your family will treasure forever.
I have two types of newborn sessions: Studio and Lifestyle newborn session. The first takes place in my studio, second takes place in client’s home.
Studio Newborn Session – £75 session fee
Lifestyle Newborn Session – £100 session fee
Why to book Dora Horvath Photography?
I am very passionate about newborns. Those brand new little lives are amazing. Photographing them genuinely makes my day. I spend some time every day learning to perfect my craft. Hopefully this little guide will help you to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Most customers book their session before baby arrives, after their 20 week scan. However, I know life never goes to plan and babies always surprise us! Therefore, I limit how many newborns I take a month. I can usually accommodate all photo shoots. When considering choosing a newborn photographer, it is CRUCIAL to plan ahead. Availability is limited, so it is important to reserve your date as soon as possible once you decide to book.
Lifestyle newborn session at your home
My popular Lifestyle Newborn Sessions involve both baby individually, and baby + parents. Lifestyle sessions don’t involve any type of props or formal posing. The primary focus placed on the new bond between you all.The session takes place in the client’s home, preferably in the nursery, master bedroom, and living room.
How can i prepare for a lifestyle newborn session?
Do not worry about your house being a mess—you just had a baby! All you need to do to prepare is open the blinds/curtains to let in as much light as possible. The workflow and posing different from the studio session, trying to give back the atmosphere of your home, the happiness of your baby’s arrival! We can also take some photos outdoors if the weather permits (ideal for spring and summer due dates!).
What if baby won’t settle?
The best to do the newborn session in the first two weeks. I am a baby-led photographer which means that if baby is awake, we will take some gorgeous awake shots and capture that fantastic eye contact of a nosy baby. I usually start with some wrapped pictures in the basket, which helps them to feel cosy and sleepy. When they want to sleep I will allow them to be completely comfortable and relax into natural poses. If in the very rare circumstances baby is ill or completely unsettled then it would be entirely possible to reschedule for a date in the near future when baby will be more at ease.
What poses and props should we expect?
A lot of parents express concern about posing and the possibility of baby being uncomfortable. May I take this time to reassure you that I never pose baby or place them in props when they are not at their most comfortable. This means that I only move baby into poses that they naturally go into themselves. I only do this when they are content and safe. I pride myself on this natural style of newborn photography which shows off your baby in a beautiful, relaxed position artistically posed and decorated with bespoke accessories and props.
What will the baby wear?
What if my baby has already been born?
If your baby has already been born and you feel like you have missed the newborn stage but would still like similar photographs taken of your baby then please get in touch. I have photographed many older babies and this is usually not a problem at all. It just means you might have more awake photos! Sometimes mums prefer to wait a little while until they are more settled in with a new baby before getting photographs taken.
How much will it cost??
From the moment I contacted her, all the way through to collecting our images I felt Dora really listened to what we wanted and offered a very tailored photo shoot including personal items and colour themes we requested. We wanted to say a massive thank you!
We had a lovely time at our photo shoot with Dora. She was wonderful not only with our baby but also with our 3 year old too and managed to capture some beautiful moments that we will treasure forever. Dora was ever so patient and accommodating, she made sure we were all comfortable before each picture, took pictures of us in lots of different positions and even managed to get some stunning pictures of our 3 year old who is going through an odd smile faze!! Also, prior to our photo shoot I messaged Dora a few times with outfit questions etc and she was ever so prompt to reply with suggestions and help! Thank you so much Dora, we love our pictures so much!
