Newborn photography

Above being a photographer and an entrepreneur, I’m a Mummy and family is at
the centre of everything that I do. Capturing those early days is so special, they
are gone in a heartbeat and the photos are a way to remember that special time.

Newborn shoots take place in my studio and each session is uniquely styled so
no two shoots are the same. I introduce props and backdrops, discussing colour
schemes etc so these photos can become a treasured piece of artwork for your
home. I always include lots of soft textures and spend time on the styling, setting
the scene and getting everything just so.

I love to connect with other mothers, chatting about mum life and those shared
experiences (anybody else experiencing the terrible twos?) It’s always relaxed,
super comfy and down to earth, creating a bespoke experience rather than a
conveyor belt of newborns. I get to know each and every family and sometimes
have the privilege of shooting maternity sessions before baby arrives or family
sessions further down the line.

This sense of relationship is really important to me – it’s a real privilege to
photograph these magical early moments. I will take care of your little one,
capturing timeless images usually rocking a muslin on my shoulder whilst you
get to relax and have a cup of tea (that in itself is something in those early days,
am I right?)

As for the newborn snuggles, well they are the best part of my job – I’ve just got
to make sure I pass them back before I get too broody!

Newborn Photography in my comfortable home studio in Poole, Dorset.

Please note – Babies change and grow so quickly, so within the first 14 days is the ideal time for newborn photography, whilst your baby is still curled up and sleepy most of the time…

Newborn sessions fill up very quickly and in advance, so around your 20-week scan is the best time to book your session, I schedule in a maximum of two ‘due dates’ per week to ensure I have plenty of availability to accommodate early/late arrivals.

Please contact me with your Due Date and I can check my availability for you…

Review

Sophie is fantastic – we had some maternity and newborn photographs done with her. Sophie was amazing with our little girl during the newborn shoot, she was so patient with her and really took the time to get the perfect shot. She is very welcoming and made my husband and I feel very comfortable, to the point he almost nodded off!! We are really impressed with the photographs from both of our shoots and couldn’t recommend Sophie highly enough. Thank you x

We are so thrilled with our newborn photos of Imogen! The shoot itself was so relaxed and peaceful – it was a real treat for me and Ben to sit back, have a cup of tea and watch Sophie take such gorgeous photos. Sophie was so patient and gentle and clearly knew all the tricks of the trade with the white noise machine!!! We had plenty of time to feed Imogen as and when needed and we had a really lovely morning. The newborn phase is over so quickly and I am so happy I have such beautiful photos to remember how tiny Imogen was at 11 days old.
From the moment of booking to receiving prints Sophie was fantastic – really professional but so friendly too. The prints, USB and leather holder it all came in was so lovely to get through the post and made it all the more special. I cannot recommend enough – thank you Sophie!!

Thank you so much Sophie for capturing some beautiful moments of our little boy at such a precious time 💕 From start to finish of the shoot we felt so comfortable and relaxed being in the studio with you as did Teddy. So much thought, patience and care went into the morning with us. I felt very anxious beforehand with a newborn baby thinking would he cry? What if he doesn’t settle for the pictures? But Sophie made us a cup of tea and we sat and watched her soothe Teddy and get him into various positions and outfits to get some beautiful pictures, my husband and I felt so relaxed and we loved watching the magic unfold..
We cannot recommend Sophie highly enough! Thank you xxx

Natural Lighting

I use natural sunlight in my newborn photography, to create a soft and airy look. My home studio is designed to make the most of the natural lighting, so there is no need to use harsh flashes to photograph your little one.

Years Of Experience

I have been photographing tiny babies for many years and have a little person of my own also, you can trust me to safely pose your precious newborn. Baby cuddles is my speciality!

Those Little Details

The details are some of my favourite images and I always try to capture the little features that make your baby so unique & perfect, tiny fingers & perfect curls are just too cute not to photograph…
