– Newborn photography Chesterfield Derbyshire –
– Because you only get that one chance and then it’s gone forever –
Hello and welcome
I am so happy that you have found me.
Either you are here because you are expecting or you’ve just had a baby. Which ever category you fall into you are in the right place and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
I am honoured to have the privilege of photographing hundreds of tiny newborn babies over my 15 years in business.
I fall a little bit in love with every baby I photographed and wish I could keep them all. Even after all these years, I never grow weary of that new baby smell and how perfect that little features are.
The first few weeks after giving birth flies by in a blur of endless speeding and sleepless nights. You don’t know what time it is or even what day it is, you’re in your own little bubble. Before you know it four weeks has passed and your baby is no longer a newborn.
Those tiny fingers and toes will all too soon become chubby and your one small squishy baby will no longer fit perfectly into the crook of your arm like they once did.
It’s important that your newborn photos are done with in the first two weeks after baby is born. This is because they are still sleepy and most flexable. After two weeks they start to wake more and are no longer able to achieve the sleepy squishy poses you see and love.
I only offer a limited amount of Newborn booking per months so for this reason I advise that you book your newborn session just after your 16 week scan so you don’t miss out.
Your newborn session will be a relaxed stress free and enjoyable experience that will provide you with beautiful timeless images of those first precious days as a family.
From the moment you book you are welcomed into my family and once baby is here I’ll send over a session guide that will help you prepare for your newborn session.

– The most important art work you will ever posses –
– The experience–
The best time for a newborn session to take place is between 3 and 14 days. As babies mostly arrive when they are good and ready, I block out dates in my diary two weeks either side of your due date.
For this reason I can only take a limited number of pre-bookable appointments per month. This is why I advise you to book just after your 16 week scan or as soon as possible before baby is here.
You are completely taken care off throughout the whole process. From booking to receiving your final products the whole process is relaxed and stress free.
You receive a welcome gift on booking and once baby is here I send over session guide to help prepare you for your newborn session. This is where you can then choose your backdrop and digital backdrops too.
All the final edited digital images are included in the price.
The whole process is relaxed and pressure free. You will leave with images you love and will never feel pressured to purchase more than you want.
Baby alreay here?
As i’m so busy its very rare that I have any availibity, but it’s always worth asking so give me a call on 0778 3155 100 as soon as possible and I’ll do my best to fit you in.
– The studio –
The studio is based in the village of Wingerworth, Chesterfield and is situated next to my home with its own entrance.
My studio is heated to around about 26° to keep your baby cosy. It can get a little warm for us, but as your baby is going to be naked they need to be kept nice and warm.
I have a large selection of blankets for you to choose from, so you’ll have no problem finding something that will complement your home. There are also lots of hats and headbands for you to use or you’re more than welcome to bring your own.
I provide an extensive drinks menu along with fresh fruit and croissant’s for you to enjoy at your session.
You can sit back and totally relax with a nice cup of tea or coffee and read a magazine. I’ve even had a few parents falling asleep on the sofa to, which is fine, after all you won’t be getting much sleep with a new baby
– Parents –
It’s always nice to get the first photos of your new baby, but don’t forget the photos of all of you together, as you’ve just become a family.
No one likes having their photos taken but you’ll never get to go back and re-take these special photos. Even if you’re unsure about having them done, do them anyway, that way you will never regret not having them.
– Siblings –
Siblings can often feel left out when a new baby comes along, by including them in the photos they will feel like they are still loved, just as much as ever.
As a newborn session can take up to 4 hours, I ask that all siblings come towards the end of the session. Asking a child to sit still for a few minutes is hard but asking them to sit still for three hours can be next to impossible.
If you have school age children and can’t pull them out of school for an hour we can do an additional 15 minutes session on a Saturday morning.
– Maternity mini session –
You look amazing when pregnant so celebrate it with a mini maternity session.
These are taken around about 35 weeks as this is the stage where your bump is at its best.
You can choose to have your session in the studio or at an outdoor location. I have a few lovely maternity dresses you can choose from or you can wear your own. If you’re free feeling brave, you can even go naked but don’t worry we keep you well covered up.
And yes of course you can include your partner and other children in your bump shoot too.
These sessions are only available as an add-on to your newborn session at an additional cost of £20. You then get to view your maternity photos along with your newborn photos and you can choose to mix and match from both galleries.
– Kind words –
“Absolutely loved phoebes newborn photos, we will treasure this forever. Lynn, thank you so much for your time and patience, you were fantastic with us. Would highly recommend and we will be back for some more of the little lady grows.”
“We had Lyn do our sons newborn photo shoot when he was just two weeks new. Lyn was amazing with Arlo. You can tell that she just loves what she does and when we went to our photo viewing this was reflected in the quality of her photos which were amazing. I can’t wait for our Christmas photo shoot and some family ones in the future.“
“It’s so hard to find the words for how amazing Lyn is and how fab the whole experience is, right from booking the shoot.
