Newborn session

Words can not express the joy of new life

“Newborn Photography is so special for me. Every Child is a different kind of Flower and all together make this World a Beautiful Garden”

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 provide the highest service for my clients with listening to their needs. I will make sure you have the greatest experience all the way from booking to your final viewing session.  If you have any question please feel free to contact me.

Baby safety

It is important to understand that we take baby safety seriously. Most complicated images are composites, not all babies are able to bend in all poses. We discuss poses before we start the session and explain how to achieve them. I always use an assistant during my newborn session, to make sure your baby is always in good hands. 

As a newborn photographer my number one priority is the newborn’s safety during session. It is very important to be educated on a pose you are going to try and to educate new or soon to be parents that what they see in my gallery is not always as it seems. Some of the images are edited together of more images to create a final artwork. There is more behind the image then you can see! As being and award winning Newborn photographer I have to do years of training to  know difference between safety, poses, composites, etc. Your little one is in great hands with me during the whole session. I make sure that whole experience is gret, and you can cherish these great memories.

Newborn session prices

We charge a non-refundable session fee of £75 for our newborn sessions, this covers our talent, our time in the studio together and my specialist equipment. 

The session fee does not include any digital images or prints. These can be purchased at your viewing session. 

You are at no time under any obligation to purchase any of your images from your session, however  there is a minimum spend of £259. You can purchase digital images or any of my collections. 

This is due to the amount of time in processing, design and development invested in your session and images to create your gallery.

Your Experience

With my years of experience as a baby photographer, I have learned how to plan our sessions so that they are the most efficient and easy for baby. I always tell the parents that the newborns are leading my sessions. Planning and styling is really important part of my preparation. I am lucky enough to have assistant during the newborn session. Safety is top priority for me. Most of the poses require assistance and help to secure the baby while i am taking images.  Smooth transitioning is key to keeping baby asleep and happy, so I plan out the session step by step to get the easiest transitioning for baby and keep them in a deep sleep. I prepare all your colour choices and images and plan out the best possible session for baby.

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.

Planning Ahead

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. 

How can i prepare for a lifestyle newborn session?

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.

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.


We do require a session fee of £75 on booking, this confirms your session and covers the cost of the photographers time, styling and gallery preparation. You can book your newborn session here.

What will the baby wear?

I have a cute collection of outfits and wraps in a range of colours that baby will wear. If you’d like naked photos to show baby at their most pure and innocent then I will be happy to oblige.rops.

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.
