My approach to newborn and baby photography

When looking for a newborn photographer in Leeds, Yorkshire to capture your brand new baby you are really spoilt for choice! The good news is that we all have our own style, so you can find the photographer to suit you.


Some photographers use a studio, some come to your home, some will pose the baby into curled up positions and some will simply go with the flow. So when it comes to choosing your newborn photographer, it is worth doing a little bit of research depending on the look you are after for your photos... luckily I offer a bit of everything.


My baby photoshoots include a mix of natural photos and posed photos depending on baby and your likes/ dislikes.


I have photographed over 400 babies so I know a thing or two about how babies react to situations, how to handle them safely and what each squirm and cry means.


I start all my sessions with a consultation to find out what style you most prefer.


Natural photos

If you prefer natural photos I can keep the shoot super simple, using only neutral colours or even just white. These photos are my favourite kind of photos to capture... baby just being a baby. These types of shoots can take place in your own home or in my studio and can be when baby is a little older than a newborn (from 3 - 4 weeks) when baby is more alert.




Posed photos

I have lots of experience in posing babies safely. If you prefer it when baby is placed in adorable sleepy curled up newborn poses, I can do this too! I have lots of blankets, baby props and outfits that I can use to create a beautiful collection of images.




Family photos

I strongly recommend the whole family gets involved in the photos, not just baby. The interaction between baby with you and their siblings is so precious. Even if you’re a little bit camera shy, it is so worth capturing those special moments for your baby (no one else has to see if you don't want them to!).
