Either you are here because you are expecting a baby or just had a baby, whichever category you fall in to, you are in the right place and I’m sure you wont be disappointed.
You would think, with me photographing hundreds of babies over the 11 years I have been a photographer, that I would grow tired of newborns.
The reality is, I love it!
I fall a little bit in love with every baby I photograph and wish I could keep them all. Even after all theses years, I never grow weary of that new baby smell and how perfect their little features are.
As a mum of 2 I understand completely that you want to savour every moment with your new baby. However the first few weeks after having a newborn you are in a blur of feeding and sleepless nights.
Those tiny fingers and toes will all too soon become chubby and your once small squishy baby will no longer fit perfectly in the crook of your arm like they once did.
My job is to allow you to slow down and to relax while I capture your babies perfect tiny details that you can then hold on to for the rest of your life.
I love getting to know all of my clients and their babies and most of my families come back year after year. It’s a real privilege to watch my babies grow.
Newborn session take place between 3 & 14 days. Now as babies mostly arrive when they are good and ready, I block out dates in my diary 2 weeks either side of your due date.
For this reason I can only take a limited number of pre bookable appointments.
You are completely taken care of through out the whole process, from booking to receiving your final product and the whole process is relaxed and stress free.
Once baby is here I send over a session guide to help prepare you for your newborn session, You can also choose your backdrop and digital backdrops too.
Two weeks after your session you return to the studio to view and purchase your images.
The whole process is relaxed and pressure free. You will leave with the images you love and will never feel pressured to purchase more than you want.
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 26 degrees to keep you baby cosy. It can get a little warm for us, but as your baby is going to be naked, they need to keep 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 compliment your home. There is also lots of hats and headbands for you to use or you are more than welcome to bring your own.
I provide tea/coffee along with fresh fruit & croissants for you at the 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 too, which is fine. After all you wont be getting much sleep with a new baby.
It's always nice to get the first photos of your new baby, but also you've just become a family.
No one likes having their photos taken but you will never get to go back and re take them. Even if you are unsure about having them done, do them anyway. You dont have to purchase them, but at least you can see them.
Siblings can offten feel left out when a new baby comes along. By including them in the photos they will feel that they are still loved, just as much as ever.
As the newborn session can take up to 3 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 for 3 hours can be next to impossible.
If you have school aged children and can't pull them out of school for an hour, we can do an additional 15 min session on a Saturday morning.
Over the first year your tiny Newborn will grow and change in the blink of an eye.
The "Watch me Grow" plan captures your baby as the reach each mile stone, 4-7 months, 1st birthday.
Add this on to your newborn session for just £40 (saving £60).
You view each gallery two weeks after each session.
After your last session you will receive a keepsake folio with a photo from each session, as a gift from us (worth £350).*
You look amazing when pregnant, celebrate it with a mini bump session.
These are taken around 35 weeks as this shows off your bump 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 feeling brave, you can even go naked. Don't worry we keep you covered up.
You can of course include your partner and other children in your session too.

So what are you waiting for?
It is best to book just after your 20 week scan. I then block out a couple of dates in my diary for 2 weeks either side of your due date.
As i have so many dates taken up by each newborn I can only offer a limited number of sessions per month. So as soon as you have decided you would like your newborn photos captured by Wings Photography, give me a call and we can schedule you in the diary.
Babies, as we all know come when they are ready. Only around 5% of babies come on their due date. Most first time babies arrive later, around 60% the week after the due date.
When you book in I put your due date in the diary, then keep a date for 2 weeks either side of your due date. As soon as your baby arrives, you get a email with the session date.
All sessions take place in my purposely designed studio, in Wingerworth Chesterfield. The studio is attached to my home, and is completely self contained.
Its kept to a constant 26 degrees to ensure that baby is kept nice and cosy. It may get a little warm for us so do make sure you wear something comfortable.
Sessions can take up to 4 hours, with the average newborn session lasting around 2 ½ hours. As each baby is different, we work with them, you cant rush a newborn!
I have tea & coffee available and a nice comfy sofa for you to relax on. I have had a few sleep deprived parents even have a little nap.
Your photos are available to view, back in the studio, around 2 weeks after your newborn session.
Of course! I encourage it. You will never get this time back and having photos of you all as a family when baby is still so tiny is so precious. It also helps sibling bond with the new baby.
I take photos of both mum and dad, alone with baby and then together and siblings with baby and then all as a family. If you have siblings who are at school, you are welcome to bring them for a 15min session on a Saturday morning, if you are unable to bring them out of school.
Don't worry, I am an expert at getting baby to sleep. But while they are awake it nice to get some with babies eyes open too. All babies will sleep eventually and I am very patient. So please don't panic.
I have all the blankets, hats and headbands at my studio for you to choose from. But you are welcome to bring any keepsake objects you would like photographing with your baby.
Once baby has arrived I supply you with a guide to help you prepare for your session. It tells you how to get you and your baby ready and what you need to do.
The session fee is just £65 this is payable on booking to secure your date in the diary. At no time are you obliged to purchase any images, however i'm so confidant that you will love your images that you wont leave empty handed.
Product prices start from £375
I am so confidant that you will love your photos that I offer a money back guarantee. If for what ever reason you don't like photos, you will be refunded your session fee and I will delete your photos.
