First of all congratulations! Parenthood is such a wonderful journey and we understand how precious every moment is with your new baby.
Most of us here at Blink Studios are mums too, so we understand the bond and the moments, that you are no doubt so keen to capture & keep forever.
We understand that not many babies come when they are expected, so don’t worry we will be flexible for booking and moving your newborn photoshoot experience and ensure we capture them in the first 3-4 weeks of life. We advise getting a date in the diary when you’re pregnant ( ideally around 4-6 weeks at the end of the pregnancy) to guarantee your time with us, we will then move according to baby’s arrival as you will be given priority.
Natalie has photographed newborn babies professionally for 8 years and has been professionally photographing families and babies for 14 years. She has been professionally trained in the safe art of newborn posing and has handled numerous newborns over the years so she is comfortable in soothing them too.
We have a full range of safe props, blankets, hats and headbands for you to choose from. So there’s no need to bring anything with you for the sets. We do advise you to bring anything sentimental, or anything that you have personalised to them.

Why is the first 2 weeks the perfect time for a newborn photoshoot?
For full-term, when babies are born, they sleep for around 14-16 hours per day for the first 2 weeks. At the 2 week point, babies have a growth spurt which may cause them to be more awake and fussy (most of the time they just want to eat for 24/48 hours!) We do have a degree of flexibility up to about a week or two.
What to expect?
Natalie mainly photographs newborns wrapped. This helps them to feel secure and content. Natalie has been professionally trained in the art of baby wrapping so your precious bundle is in great hands. Most of the time they will fall asleep throughout the shoot, however, if they stay awake, please don’t worry. We will still get lots of beautiful Newborn Art images for you to cherish.Please allow 1.5 hours for your newborn shoot with us
Siblings are more than welcome to come along for the Newborn Experience, we will speak to you before your session about others you would like to include. What better moments to capture than those between a child and their brand new baby brother or sister! That’s a memory to cherish!
Celebrate this life-changing moment with a Newborn Family Portrait. We encourage you to jump in, even if it’s just for a couple of shots! Your little one will love looking back at these photos when they get older too.
