Beautifully preserving your family memories forever
Beautifully preserving your family memories forever
Telling the unique story of your family
Your family story deserves to be told in a way that you can enjoy for many years to come. You may have considered newborn photography but are not sure what is involved and whether you will want to visit a studio after having your baby. It is perfectly normal for expectant parents to have the same concerns that you do.
By understanding that new parents may feel anxious about visiting us within their baby’s first 10 – 14 days, at our Hatfield studio we have created a home-from-home experience that our customers love.
Newborn photography takes time and patience so this is why we only offer one session a day so that you don’t have to rush and where your baby can run the schedule, not us.
So that you don't have to miss out on preserving these special memories, we have created a fantastic artwork offer for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if my baby doesn't arrive in time for my session?
We operate a very flexible diary so that we can accommodate you once your baby has arrived. Seeing as only about 4% of babies arrive on their due dates we are used to early or later arrivals. you just let us know as soon as baby has arrived and we will work out the best time for you to come to the studio.
How long will the session last?
Allow up to 4 hours but we should be finished in about 2-3
Is there anything I should do before setting off to the studio?
If your journey is less than half an hour please try and aim to keep baby up and then give a good feed just before leaving home. If you’ll be travelling longer than 30 minutes then try to time it so that you feed baby on arrival. This means baby will be super sleepy on arrival and we can start the shoot as soon as you arrive.
What should I dress my baby in?
Most of our images are done with baby naked, but with ‘little private bits’ out of shot. It’s ideal if you can avoid dressing baby and instead keep the nappy fairly loose and wrap him/her in blankets so we don’t have to disturb them when undressing.
What happens if my baby has a toilet accident?
I guarantee your baby WILL at some point during the session. It’s fine and expected, please don’t be embarrassed. It’s natural and we’re used to it.
I’m breast-feeding, do you have somewhere private?
Absolutely, we’ll either give you some private time in the studio if you prefer.
Can I bring friends or family to watch?
Our studio is very cozy and too many people are distracting for us and your baby. Therefore we can only accommodate mum and dad. However, if you wish to have siblings in some of the images then please let us know in advance. Creating newborn images takes time and they will get bored so we normally include siblings towards the end of the session (most clients have a friend or parents who will babysit and bring proud brother or sister up to the studio near the end).
What if my baby has really dry skin, scratches, or milk spot/baby acne?
No problem, we are expert digital artists and re-touchers so we’ll enhance your images to perfection. We do suggest using some baby lotion for very dry/flakey skin before setting off for the studio.
When can we see the images?
After the shoot we’ll arrange a viewing appointment (so please bring your diary) and then we will explain what artwork options are available and you’ll also get a product guide to take away with you.
Is there a minimum spend requirement?
No we don't require a minimum spend - you are in control of what you want to purchase. Our single products start from £50 and our digital packages from £245. We 100% guarantee you will love your images or we will refund the cost of your session.
What if my baby won’t settle, or doesn’t like being posed?
Over the last few years we have photographed many babies; we are newborn experts and will always do what your baby is happy with. Your baby will eventually sleep… if that requires feed breaks, lots of cuddles, rocking, walking, burping then that’s all fine by us, we’ll do whatever it takes (we love that part too!) You can just sit back and relax and enjoy fresh cookies and lots of tea and coffee.
When can we collect our artwork?
Your artwork will be ready to collect 2 weeks after your viewing
Is there a deposit to pay?
Upon booking, we require the session fee payment (£49) and a £30 refundable booking deposit which is refundable when you return for your viewing providing no appointments are missed or cancelled within 7 days. Session are not confirmed until this payment has been made - this is how we ensure the flexible booking system works. We don't over book so that we can accommodate your baby's arrival.
