Their tiny feet, their button nose, its such a precious time. It is such an honour to photograph newborn babies, to capture all the little details before they so quickly grow. My elegant little studio is located just outside Mullingar in Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath and is a cosy comfortable space for you to take a breath, relax, while I take care of everything. My style is to keep props to a minimum and ensure baby is always the main focus.
when to book
The best time to attend for a newborn session is between day 6 to 14 This is simply because baby is still sleepy and more flexible and also because issues such as colic or baby acne are less likely. However, I do of course love to capture memories of all ages so please just get in touch to discuss and I will work around what suits best for your family. I recommend getting in touch shortly after your 20 week scan as I work on a limited number of sessions per month so that I can dedicate my full attention to each client, making sure you receive a high quality and enjoyable experience.
Family connection is hugely important to me and it is so special to capture this, which is why my sessions always include shots with both parents and other siblings. Although some parents, especially Mums are reluctant to get into photos so soon after giving birth as you may not be feeling your best, I would always advise to do it. These images will be tastefully done and they are moments that you will treasure forever. Our children don't care what we looked like or what we were wearing but they will care to have those precious moments.
When it comes to newborns safety is my priority, I have trained in newborn posing and safety, I will never force a baby into a pose I feel they are not happy with, I take great time and care to make sure baby is always happy and comfortable.
