Newborn photoshoot sessions with lovingly Lydia

Thank you for visiting! Here I hope you will find the perfect newborn photoshoot for your new baby. Newborn sessions are usually carried out between 5 days and up to about 4 weeks, depending on the baby's circumstances. I have successfully carried out newborn sessions on babies older than this, so always get on touch to talk about your personal needs if your baby is a little older. 


My newborn photography sessions are very close to my heart, something which I take a great pride and passion in and have been crafting to perfection for many years now. My combination of professional mixed with natural posing, teamed with my experience and reasonable, simple pricing structures, have given me years of repeat business and recommendations. 


Booking a newborn session is simple, I offer 10-12 pre-booked newborn placements each calendar month. Simply contact me with the month in which you are due to check latest availability and if I have placements remaining for your due month, a simple £50 reservation fee with guarantee your photoshoot Once reserved you don't have to worry about when baby comes, a VIP date will be waiting for you, after baby has arrived. The best time to book is around your 20 weeks scan for best availability.

Has Your Baby Been Born Already?

It's OK! You didn't know you had to book in advance? I hear it all the time. If you have already had your baby or are due your baby very soon, please contact me direct to check my live diary for any gaps as they do pop up here and there sometimes. I may still be able to fit you in as a last minute space, so I would love to hear from you.
