“Offering beautiful, natural and creative newborn photography capturing those very precious early days”

The birth of your newborn baby is such a very wonderful time in your life … let us help you capture those very precious early days.  Our favourite time to capture your newborn is between 6 and 12 days … and up to 4 weeks.

We offer both the very natural curled up, sleepy shots, together with the more creative element to newborn photography using our beautiful props and Newborn Digital Art images, some of which can be seen below.  ALL Props and Outfits are provided and included in all package options.

If you have not yet had your baby … we would recommend booking a date around your due date. This can be changed if necessary once your little bundle of joy arrives.

Newborn photography sessions are up to 2 – 3 hours allowing for feeding, soothing and cuddles throughout.

We realise how very precious your newborn baby is to you and we take the greatest care during the session, and ensure that the studio is kept lovely and warm. ALL sessions can include sibling and family shots, and package prices (as shown below) include as many props as you like and all editing/retouching required. We discuss in full your requirements at the start of your session.

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.

If you would like us to quote on your own ideas for a bespoke package, please call or email Gaynor, or you can fill in our contact form.

We booked in for a newborn photo shoot for my baby girl when she was 10 days old, and took our 7 year old to join in. Gaynor did an amazing job on the day, it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and nothing was rushed. Lots of great ideas and outfits were tried on, and the end pictures blew us away, they’re absolutely amazing, we love them. I can’t recommend Gaynor enough, I’m sure we’ll be back for more photo’s in the future!

Can’t thank Gaynor enough for my newborn photo shoot! She was absolutely brilliant with my little girl, extremely patient. It took us about an hour and a half to get my daughter to sleep ready for her shoot, but I didn’t feel rushed in any way whatsoever. The communication regarding when my order would be ready was fab and I am in love with my canvas – such great quality. I would definitely recommend Shy Violet Photography
