Your Newborn's first few weeks

Captured forever with beautiful images of your new baby

Babies grow and change so quickly.

I capture those sleepy, snuggly moments of your precious newborn in their first few weeks so you can look back on this special time forever.

Newborn Photo Session £95

My Newborn session fee covers the exclusive use of my studio for the duration of your session, my talent and time as a professional photographer as well as use of all newborn props.

When to book

I recommend booking once you’ve had your 20 week scan so I can get you pencilled in around your due date and reserve a window around when your baby arrives.

In an ideal world it's best to do a newborn photography session in the first 14 days after birth, as this is when your baby is still sleepy and curled up, allowing me to capture those super squishy poses. Once your new arrival makes an appearance we then finalise the date and time of the photoshoot.

I'm always flexible to allow for little ones who have an early or late entrance so if you haven’t booked in advance, please do get in touch as I may still be able to fit you in. 

Due to the special nature of newborn photoshoots, I limit these to one per day. This means I can give my full time and attention to each and every baby that I photograph.  My sessions are never rushed.

To book all I require is a £50 session fee deposit with the balanced payable on the day of your newborn photoshoot.

Pre-shoot Consultion

When you book I will ask you to complete a Discovery Form. This provides me with information that we can discuss in your Pre-Shoot Consultation, which can be arranged at my studio in person or we'll arrange a time to talk over the phone if that suits you better.


We will also explore if there are any sort of poses you may like and colours that will compliment your home or if you have any siblings that you would like to incorporate in your shoot. Your consultation enables me to properly plan for your baby's newborn shoot and I will prepare a selection of props, outfits and accessories to create a timeless look of your little one.  

Answers to some common questions related to my Newborn Photoshoot sessions can be found here.

What to Expect

The photoshoot for your newborn will take place in my fully equipped garden studio, at my home in Haywards Heath.  
The studio is warm, has comfortable seating for parents to relax in, and is private. My sessions are never rushed and my top priority is a happy, contented baby at all times. 
I allow 2-3 hours for the photoshoot to ensure time for feeding and settling of baby, or just mummy cuddles if needed! I’m prepared with nappies and wipes, and always allow time for the inevitable nappy changes.   

Your baby’s safety and comfort are my priority during your photoshoot.  I’m trained in the art of safely posing newborns, and it’s important to me that you are comfortable as I work with your baby. 

I am calm and patient and will make sure you are all at ease during the session. 

And please don’t worry if your baby has an outbreak of milk spots, blemishes, or has scratched themselves.  These can easily be touched up in the post-editing process.

“Nikki did amazing work while capturing our newborn. She was so patient with the child and made her feel so comfortable. We certainly plan to use her services again when our baby gets a little older. Also, she had taken all precautions to make you feel safe during this pandemic. A must recommended photographer around Sussex area.”



We came across Nikki by chance but what a find! We were looking for someone to capture some beautiful natural shots for us with both maternity and newborn... Nikki more than delivered! Being able to have the shoot in the relaxed environment of our own home really helped and Nikki is so lovely, professional and has wonderful attention to detail when setting up the shots. We are thrilled with all of our photos and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for similar.


“We are so pleased with our newborn shoot. Nikki you are so talented. Thank you again for all your time and efforts that was used to make our little girl newborn shoot so memorable. The finest details in the photos and how to keep my 3 year old twins concentrated and part of the shoot. Thank you very much!!”


I’m so glad I got Nikki to shoot my newborn photos! I’m so in love with all the hard work she put into my photo session! she is totally amazing !! I can’t wait to receive all my amazing photos Nikki is truly amazing she made it a moment that I will cherish for life spending precious time with my first born and making the memories Nikki is patient and works with your child and you around you!

Thank you so much Niki


“I can't recommend Nikki enough. She was recommended to us and I can see why. We arranged at the last minute to have a Newborn photoshoot and Nikki was able to move a few things to accommodate us. Being a first time mum it was lovely to see Nikki really looking after our baby during the entire shoot. She is very thoughtful, caring and has a great eye for detail. Most importantly she is a perfectionist and this really came across in her amazing work. Thank you again for all your time and hope to work with you again once our little boy is a little older.” ANA.

Nikki is extremely professional and captured my newborn son during his first few weeks in the comfort of my own home. Thanks to Nikki this is something me and my family will treasure forever. Would highly recommend for a newborn shoot.
