Maternity & New Born Photo Sessions
Thank you for visiting my website!
I am a West Sussex Portrait Photographer living in the market town of Midhurst within the South Downs National Park. I am a wife to Mark and a Mum to my Noah, with our blue Staffordshire Terrier, Wilson - completing our little family.
I know the importance of capturing your children growing up, trying to make time stand still or holding on to those special moments that you wish could last forever.
This is a fairly new area for me as I did my first new born shoot towards the end of 2021. I loved it! So this is an area of my photography I would like to grow.
My maternity shoots will likely still happen outdoors however I appreciate that new borns require extra care and these will be offered indoors using a natural light source such as a large window or conservatory.
I am fully vaccinated for the current requirements, however am still happy to photograph at a distance and wear a mask.
I am happy to discuss what you feel comfortable with in order to capture the early stages of your new baby!
A session usually lasts between 45-60 minutes for a maternity / new born session for up to 6 family members, however if you are looking for an extended family session whereby you may want to include grandparents or aunts and uncles then I can tailor a package for you.
I will advise you on what colours / clothes to wear pending the season and guide you with a selection of relaxed and natural poses for me to capture those magic moments!

How it Works
HOW IT WORKS
The first step would be to choose an agreed photo shoot date and time that works for you. Light is so important so pending the time of the day may determine where is the best location is for you.
Once the above is agreed I will send you an invoice and ask you to pay a non-refundable deposit (session fee) to confirm your date.
I will then send you written confirmation of your booking along with some tips of what to wear and what to bring on the day. We can also discuss if you have any specific poses you wish to capture or ideas you want to try and how we can make the most of your photo session.
ON THE DAY
I aim to be at the location before you arrive. (Unless of course this is at your home!)
We can then have chat about the plans for the photo session and I will take a few test shots and then we can ease into a fun and relaxed day.
If you have young children if maybe worth bringing snacks, toys and a spare change of clothes just in case.
During the photo shoot, to keep it as natural as possible, I will give you some direction to make sure we get the best out of your surroundings and light we have to work with.
AFTER THE SHOOT
I know you will likely be excited to get see photos as soon as possible. I am to send the link to access your proof gallery within 14 days of your shoot. This link can be shared with family and friends as well.
Your online gallery will have the selected edited images from the day, which are high res digital files.
You can then select your favourite images and choose your preferred Image Collection.
If you wish to order additional prints through me – we can discuss which images and sizes you would like and I can quote a price for these which will include delivery. Once payment has been received for the prints I will place your order.
Prints usually take approx. 4 weeks but times can vary.
Please see Terms Of Agreement
A lovely and unique gift for an expectant mother would be to document her journey, or to capture those first few weeks after baby arrives with a portrait session. I offer Gift Vouchers for such an occasion!
These can either be purchased as a session fee only, or you can add an Image Collection as well. I am happy to tailor the gift voucher to a certain amount as well.
Gift Vouchers are valid for 12 months from date of invoice.
Do get in touch and we can chat about your requirements.
