How to take your own Newborn Photos at home

Updated: Apr 29

You might think I am a bit crazy for writing this but I am doing it!


How to take your own Newborn Photos is a blog I've wanted to write for a while. Now I am not saying don't book me as there is nothing that could replace the experience of a relaxing Newborn Session with me at my home studio in Farnham, Surrey but for some simple shots of your baby go for it!


Whereas I photograph more posed style with props and backdrops it is easy to photograph your baby at home in a more lifestyle way.


Lets get started:


  • Photograph preferably after a feed when they are most sleepy

  • Use natural light, a bed by the window is perfect

  • Put a pillow under the covers for comfort for your baby

  • Have a cuddly toy to hand to tuck under a little arm

  • Use a small blanket for a wrap

  • Take one image with hands tucked by their sides

  • And another with hands out

  • Photograph all the little details like hand and feet too

  • Focus on the eyes by half depressing the camera shutter button or tap on the screen to focus

  • Print them off for thank you or announcement cards



Those first few weeks go by so quickly so capture them in a simple way and you do not need to take masses of images for this just a few.


I'd love to see how you get on. You can comment and post your images on my social media here is a link for you and I would love a follow too

See you soon

Lots of love
