Newborn Photography Sessions in Gloucester

It’s so true what they say about time flying when you have a baby. Your precious sleepy newborn will become an alert, moving mini-you in no time at all! Newborn photography is the perfect way to cherish the memories of those first few weeks in your baby’s life – in all their sleepy, snuggly glory. If you’re living in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury or surrounding areas, my home studio is only a short journey for you and your new baby.

Why should I book a newborn photoshoot you?

I wouldn’t trust my baby with just any old stranger and I wouldn’t expect you to either. So I like to build a rapport with my clients before they need to make any decisions about booking either with a telephone or in-person consultation so that we can chat and get to know each other a bit and see if you think I’m a good fit for you and your family.

Second of all, this is what I love to do. Ever since I decided that this was going to be my career (after having my own baby), I’ve trained with some of the best newborn photography trainers in the UK, got myself fully insured and just practised, practised, practised! I think I’ve got pretty damned good at it! And yes, maybe I do say so myself, but you don’t have to take my word for it – have a look at this video and see what some of my newborn clients thought about their photoshoots with me!

OK great, when should I book?

Newborn photoshoots are best done when your baby is aged five days to four weeks. Although I try to squeeze people in where I can, it is advisable to book well in advance. Of course we have no idea when your new arrival is going to, well, arrive, so we’ll aim for about 5-7 days after your due date. Then if we need to move things around, it’s no problem.

What should I expect from the session?

After the formalities of booking are over and done with, you’ll get an email confirming everything you need to know about your newborn photography session (you can get a head start with the blog post ‘How to Prepare for Your Newborn Portrait Photography Session‘) and inviting you to my home photography studio (soon to be garden studio – eek!) in Gloucester.

You can expect to be in the studio for around two to four hours but don’t worry, your new baby won’t be in front of the camera the entire time – I allow plenty of time for feeds and cuddles!​

At the end of your photo session, we’ll arrange the best time for you to come back for your in-person photo viewing and order session. We’ll normally aim for about two weeks later because I don’t want to keep you hanging for too long! If you’re up for it, you’ll get the option of a sneak peek of your photos on Facebook that very same evening.

So how much does all this cost?

My packages and pricing are listed below. Unlike many photographers, I don’t charge a session fee for my time; you only pay for the package and/or products that you want to buy. I do ask for a £100 deposit to secure your booking BUT this will be used as a credit towards your final order.

In the unlikely event that you come along to your photo viewing and find that you don’t like any of your photographs, then you are under no obligation to buy and your deposit will be fully refunded to you.

​Most clients opt for the top package with all its bells and whistles, but it’s also possible to create bespoke print or wall art orders. These are subject to a minimum spend of £299.

Your deposit is non-refundable in the event of a no-show.

Here’s what some of my clients had to say

Kirsty
She was brilliant with my newborn, very patient and allowed lots of time for feeds and nappy changes. The photos are absolutely beautiful!

Katie was brilliant from the start. She made sure me and my partner were comfortable and that baby was settled before we began anything. She was so patient and confident with my son even when I needed to feed and clean him up in between. Katie took time to get to know us all and was very easy to talk to. Great photographer with amazing results!
