Newborn Baby Photography

Newborn Baby Photography

My favourite time to capture your newborn baby is between 6 and 12 days and I class my newborn sessions as up to 4 weeks young.  This is the best time to capture the super cute, curled up shots before they start becoming more alert and not sleeping so well after feeds.

I like to ensure that all newborn photo sessions are very relaxed and I therefore allow up to 3 hours to capture the various newborn poses … I keep the studio warm and cosy and allow plenty of time for feeding, cuddling and soothing between these poses.

On arrival, we can discuss the shots that you’d like before we start.  I offer the natural shots on blankets with minimal props … through to the more creative Newborn Art images.  Examples of which can be seen in the gallery of images – Click here.  OR visit my Facebook page for lots more ideas and images …. also too my Instagram account – which is ShyVioletPhotography

If you have not yet had your baby … I recommend booking your newborn photo session based on your due date. This can be changed if necessary once your little bundle of joy arrives.

I do have a very comfortable newborn studio, however, if you would like me to bring my studio set up to you, I can and just need your postcode to give you a cost for travel and set up.

ALL sessions can include sibling and family shots if you wish and package prices (as shown on our website) include as many props as you like and all editing/retouching required. We discuss in full your requirements at the start of your session. There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see my price list for additional images prior to booking.  Click here to see current sale package options (prices can be found after gallery of images)

I also offer albums, photo books, canvases, blocks, folios – if you would like more info on any of these, please get in touch.

Following your photo session with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images will be online for 3 weeks on our Customer Only GALLERY website where you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home, and as many times as you like.

These are just a few images of Amelie at 8 days young from her newborn photo session. The first image shows one of my newborn vintage lace outfits for girls.  The other images are some examples of my Newborn Art images.

Calaya’s Cake Smash Photo Shoot

Calaya’s Cake Smash Photo Shoot

This is Calaya, celebrating her 1st Birthday with us with our 3-in-1 Happimess session to include the Cake Smash.

I call our Cake Smash sessions our 3-in-1 ‘Happimess’ session as we do 3 shoots as one to celebrate the 1st Birthday.  So Calaya started off with our giant wooden letters spelling ‘One’.  After which, her mum changed her into another outfit and the cake smash began … Calaya was quite hesitant and altho smiling and giggling, hardly smashed the cake and just ate little bits – we all laughed a lot tho.

Once she’d had enough of cake smashing, we then put her into our posing roll top baby bath, leaving as much cake on her as poss to start with … put the bubbles on and let her enjoy her little self.  She really loved it – she kept doing really coy little smiles too – very very sweet little girl.

I just love our cake smash sessions – they are genuinely such great fun for your baby and for you as the parents … and for me too!

Following Calya’s photo session with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of approx 60 images was uploaded to our Customer Only GALLERY website where her parents were able to view her images and choose their faves from here – they chose a 25 digital image package for £229.00.

If you are thinking of booking a birthday cake smash for your little one, our 3 Sale Packages are shown on our website – click here. Each package includes a 9”personalised cake made extra soft and gooey and very yummy, in a choice of colours.  But we do have other exciting and fun cakes for you to choose from and examples of these are shown on our website too.

If you would like to discuss a colour scheme or a certain theme, then please do get in touch – we are always open to and welcome new ideas.

There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see these prior to booking.
