Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. The tiny new life that is growing inside you will soon become the most precious things you will ever have.
So when choosing a newborn photographer, you will want to make sure that the person you are handing your new baby over to, knows exactly what they are doing and is going to keep them safe at all times.
As the top Newborn photographer in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, I know exactly how to achieve beautiful images of your baby. I have been a photographer for over 10 years and fully training in the art of Newborn photography for the last 5 years. As a Pro Member of BANPAS, I follow strict guidelines on safe practice when posing and photographing Newborn babies.
With each day you baby will grow and change so it really is important to photograph them as soon as possible, I recommend before baby is 14 days.
Parents and siblings
I encourage all parents to have photos with their new bundle of joy, you will never get this moment back and it would be a shame to miss the opportunity.
Siblings are also welcome to have photos with their new sibling, its a great way for them to bond. You can also have photos as a family too. This is a great way for the sibling to feel part of the family, when all the attention at home is on the new baby.
My boutique studio is based the the heart in Wingerworth, Chesterfield, and is attached to my home. Its kept at a constant 25 degrees, to ensure baby is kept nice and cosy. However it does get a little bit warm for us, so please wear layers you can remove.
You can relax with a cuppa and magazine, safe in the knowledge that your baby is in good hands. Its so calm and peaceful in my studio that I’ve had parents falling asleep.
“Lyn was very professional and we had nothing to worry about when Orlagh was being photographed! My husband and I had the joy of sitting back with a coffee and watching Lyn work her magic! ” – Megan Sherrer
All my backdrops are hand picked by myself so I can ensure they are soft on your baby’s delicate skin. You get get pick which backdrop you would like to use for your session that will not only complement your home, but your baby too. Every backdrop is washed in Fairy non bio to try to ensure it will not irritate your babies skin.
As the session is worked around your baby’s need to feed and cuddle, it can sometimes take up to 4 hours for us to complete the session, however the average session time is 2 and half hours.
“I had a newborn session with my 18 day old son Barclay and Lyn was brilliant with him, so gentle and good at relaxing him off to sleep. Not only did she capture some amazing shots of him but she also taught me some brilliant baby comforting tips. Which as a first time mother proved invaluable to me when put to the test last night. Hurrah, Barclay slept in between his night feeds! Thanks Lyn I woke up this morning feeling human! X” –Natalie Townsend
When to book
The most ideal time for the session is before baby is 2 weeks old. This is because baby’s bones are still soft cartilage and allows me to get the curled up poses.
Because of this I only book a handful newborn sessions for each month, this is so I am able to guarantee your appointment.
It is best to book in for your newborn session just after your 20 week scan, if you leave it until baby is here I may not have the space available to fit you in, and I do hate having to let people down.
Already had your baby?
Don’t panic you may still be able to have a session. Please give me a call to check availability.
I photograph babies as newborns up to 4 weeks, but I’m afraid after this time you have missed your chance as they are too awake and alert for the Newborn poses. However, I offer Pure and Simple baby sessions for older babies. Please click here to find out more.
