There really is something quite special about a newborn baby, those tiny toes, tiny fingers, and their perfect skin. The most overwhelming love you feel for your newborn is a new feeling, something amazing, and something to be remembered. Capturing those first few weeks of your babies life is not only creating a time capsule of memories but it is also about documenting the beginning of the most incredible journey you and your partner are about to go on....
Newborn sessions are best booked after your 20 week scan. My diary does fill up months in advance so it is important to book in prior to your babies arrival.
The best time to photograph your newborn is between 5-21 days old. At this age they will be more sleepy and more flexible. This enables me to capture those precious newborn curly images which can only be captured at this early age.
I could not recommend Hannah highly enough. She is an amazing photographer who was so caring and gentle with our new born son and put us at ease on our first outing with him. Hannah was really informative about the shoot and considers what props, colours and styles you would like to have. We are so pleased that we chose Hannah to capture the most beautiful photos of our little boy and our family
Newborn Photography is an Investment…
I have designed my packages so that anyone who appreciates and values my work will have the opportunity to have their family captured by my unique vision. Every part of a photograph that I take is purposeful and intentional.
My photography involves experience, professional equipment, high quality props and more importantly a passion and a vision for your photos. I use only the finest quality props and take great care to hand edit each photo into a beautiful work of art for you to treasure as a family forever.
They are only this little once…. and it goes by in the blink of an eye.
Sessions take place at my purpose built studio in Great Dunmow, Essex, where you will be able to sit back and relax.
Sessions are entirely baby led and are tailored around you and your little one. The safety and comfort of your baby is paramount and something I take great pride in. The studio is lovely and warm and offers a lovely calming environment for your baby. During the session I allocate plenty of time for cuddles, feeding, and settling your baby. No session is rushed, and will be entirely led by your baby.
The studio is filled with a large range of luxury props, outfits and accessories for you to use during your session, so there is no need to bring anything with you to your session apart from some nappies, and plenty of milk. I have a good supply of baby essentials in the studio incase
Sessions are entirely baby led and normally last around 2-3 hours.
Tea, Coffee and Snacks are supplied throughout the session.

"So incredibly pleased with our newborn photos, they are just stunning! Hannah was amazing, and made us feel so comfortable!I can not stop looking at the photos and can’t wait to have them hanging in our home! Thank you Hannah"
I pride myself in offering you the best possible experience.
My main aim is to create for you beautiful images, and an enjoyable experience. As we move through the process together, I will listen to your needs to ensure that you get the photographs you want, I am always here to answer your questions and hear any suggestions you may have.
What do I need for my session?
All you need to bring with you to the session is yourselves, and plenty of milk. I provide the rest, all props, outfits and accesories needed for the photos are provided by me, so you do not need to bring anything else with you.
When should I book my newborn session?
The short answer is NOW!! I recommend waiting until you have had your scan before booking with me, I often get booked up months in advance, so it is important to book your session whilst pregnant to ensure and guarentee my availabilty for when your baby arrives.
My baby has already been born, am I too late?
Most certainly not, please send me a message, even though I am often fully booked months in advance, I am often able to open up additional slots if your baby has already been born, when other babies have arrived outside of their due dates. Send me a message and I'll see what I can do :)
How do I book my Newborn Session with you?
Send me a message via the Contact Me page. I will check my availabiltiy and then we can start the booking in process.
Can I bring along my other children?
Yes! As a mum of two girls, I know how important it is to have photos of them together, and this is included in your session at no extra charge.
I will always take the photos of the siblings at either the begining or the end of the session, as they will get bored, this means that they do not have to stay for the entire session.
What if my baby isn't sleepy for the session?
Newborn sessions are best done when the baby is asleep, for this reason I allow alot of time during the session for feeding, nappy changes and settling them to sleep. Some babies sleep more than others, and others fight it. I am yet to be defeated, you will learn I have the patience of a saint, and perservearance pays off.
How long does the session take?
Sessions normally last anywhere between 2-4 hours. I never rush a session, and only ever book in one newborn per day. This is to ensure you are given the time you deserve. After all they are only this little once, and its important to spend the time you deserve to get the pictures you want.
When will my photos be ready?
After your session I will take time to edit each of your images. You can expect to recieve between 20-30 images.
I understand for some of you, you may not have the budget for a full newborn session, or you just want just a few lovely images of your precious baby. Maybe have missed out on the 5-21 day window for the full newborn session due to lockdown, or a difficult first few weeks.
The last thing I want is for you to miss out on these precious memories all together!
A newborn 'Mini" Session is perfect for "older" newborns or for those of you on a budget.
Newborn Sessions are for babies 1-10 weeks old.
This session is simple session, and all about baby and will not include images of parents or sibling images. Your baby will remain wrapped/swaddled throughout the session.
Sessions last up to one hour, and
include 3 digital Images
Your Words of Love
We went to Hannah for our baby girls new born photo shoot, back in December19. The first thing I noticed as I walked in was how beautiful and clean the studio is and it’s so private too, which I loved. Our little Penelope was a cheeky one at only 8 days new, and wouldn’t stay asleep for Hannah but that made no odds, Hannah kept trying and trying to get the sleepy shot, and we managed to get a few which I was so pleased with. We also had the most amazing rainbow photos of our little girl because she’s our rainbow baby 🌈💗 (they are my most favourite ones) Then there was the viewing of the photos, oh my that was my most favourite part of the whole experience. The slide show Hannah made of all photos together, along with the most beautiful song, brought me to tears and still does now every time I watch it back. We have the most beautiful piece of wall art up in our living room, and the quality is second to none!! If you will not regret using hanna for the most precious special photos because She is the best, and we will always be so grateful to Hannah for giving us the most special photos to cherish forever!! 💗
We used Hannah to capture newborn photos of our baby girl and we honestly could not have chosen a better photographer. The studio was warm and cosy - perfect for photographing a small baby, and Hannah has a HUGE variety of different props in all different colours and styles. She made some great suggestions for colors and themes but also took all our preferences on board.
Newborn photography really is an art, and Hannah was not only professional, but extremely caring and patient with our baby girl who didn't always want to co-operate. We ended up with an absolutely stunning gallery of photos so we just had to buy them all! Everyone has commented on how talented Hannah is and how beautiful the photos are. I would recommend Hannah in heartbeat and hope to return again in the future.
Not only the best photographer around but also the loveliest human being you could wish to meet. I always hated having my photo taken but Hannah makes you feel so comfortable and the results of our family session were absolutely breathtaking. Memories to treasure forever highly recommended !! 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Couldn’t recommend Hannah and her new born shoot more. From the moment we booked to the final collection of the photos she has been so caring, professional and understanding. Always replying promptly to my emails and treating us like friends. The photos speak for themselves and are breath taking. We bought the full collection with the slide show and it was worth every penny! I still cry watching it and looking through my photos. The studio was spotless and level of cleanliness was so reassuring especially in this current situation!
Thank you so much we will cherish these photos forever.
