Newborn Baby Photography Session

Thank you for booking Delicious Baby Studio for your Newborn Photography Session. You have been pencilled in the diary around the time of your due date, this means that i’ll be limiting the number of babies I book around then to keep my diary flexible.

Contact me within 48 hours after baby arrives

Please get in touch to let us know (or ask a family member to contact me), then we can schedule your Newborn Session within the ideal time, when baby is 5-21 days old, most sleepy and easier to settle.

Don’t worry, if you are in hospital for any reason and this timescale is not possible we will simply schedule your session as early as is realistically possible.

What to wear

It will be really warm inside the studio so layers are advisable!


If you have booked a full session (not a mini session) parent photos are included so please wear non patterned tops such as a vest/tshirt with no logos. Black is ideal as I usually do these on a grey background. The photos are waist up so don’t worry about what you wear on the bottom half, comfortable leggings/jeans are fine!


If you are bringing a sibling with you please let me know then I can prepare, I usually use neutral colours like cream for the sibling photos and children under 4 are generally best topless or wearing one of my wraps (girls). For boys a plain white t shirt is ideal for this setup, again don’t worry about the bottom half.

Dressing Baby

I have all the wraps, and props we will need for baby and i’ll be undressing them when you arrive. Please dress them in a button up all-in-one preferably a size too big and avoid anything that has to be taken off over the head. This is so baby can be easily undressed without them waking up.

On the day 

The ideal time to feed your baby is around one hour before your session, this will mean that baby is in the deepest part of their sleep cycle when they arrive. If baby isn’t due a feed at this time please top them up, a further top up may be required when we undress baby at the start of the session especially with breastfed babies. Feeding baby at the right time will really help get the best results from the session, results cannot be guaranteed if the above isn’t followed. All sessions are baby led which means we will work around what baby will let us do.

The address is:

66 Hollins Lane, Accrington, BB5 2LB. The studio is inside my house and there is plenty of parking right outside.

Please text me on the morning before you set off on 07772699850 with an estimated time of arrival, especially if you are running late.

I completely understand the difficulty of getting out of the house with a new baby but please avoid being late for your session. I usually have multiple sessions in one day so if you are late your session may have to be cut short.


The Session

The sessions take place at my home studio, it is fully equipped with all the professional equipment and gorgeous backdrops and props we’ll need for the session. When you arrive I will show you the various setups and discuss colours with you. If you would like any composite shots like the one below with baby in the heart, we can discuss colours and ideas for this, please let me know the colours you have in your house so I can create something that will look great on the wall and complement your colour scheme.

When you arrive, i’ll ask you to pass baby to me so that I can undress them ready to wrap them up.

Relax and enjoy the experience, i’ll pose baby in comfortable positions to make the most of their perfect features.

Full sessions are usually 2-3 hours and mini sessions last for up to 90 minutes.

After the Session 

Full Newborn Sessions- After the session your images will be ready in a maximum of 3 weeks. I’ll get in touch to schedule your viewing session where you’ll be able to see the images of your beautiful baby and choose any products you would like to purchase. Product purchases can only be made on the day of the viewing session as unselected images are archived after the viewing session. Payment is required upon ordering products, payment plans are also available- please ask.

Mini Sessions- Mini Sessions are all inclusive packages so your full gallery of 10-15 images will be delivered to you in a maximum of 3 weeks from the session via online gallery.

Digital image packages are usually ready within a couple of days from ordering and any products such as prints/frames/acrylics can take up to 4 weeks.

Good luck with the birth, get in touch with me on 07772699850 or when baby arrives.
