What's the difference between newborn session in a studio v ‘hospital’ or amature photographer?

So many clients come to me after being disappointed with their ‘hospital’ Images from a brand that shall remain nameless or they have chosen to go for a cheaper alternative not nessesarily realising their newborn image style expectations are not going to be met unless the photographer is trained in newborn posing.  

Women in hospital don't realise that these reps are just that Sales People they have not trained in the art of newborn posing. They receive images where the baby isn't posed properly, lighting is flat and the photo had been taken looking up baby's nose..... this will result in an image you could of taken at home.

So if you are going to invest in a professional photographer, why not invest your money into a chosen professional so you end up with images you can be proud of!?!?!    


There is a photographer for everyone and every budget out there. These photographers will give you a far better experience than a local shoot a burn photographer aka everything on a disc for £40 who doesn’t really know what they are doing, so if you are on a super tight budget (you still deserve beautiful images!) ask in local groups, the right photographer will come forward or be recommended.  Go look at their work! Is this something you want. It’s an awful shame if you go into a photoshoot with expectations that are clearly not going to be met and could have easily been avoided had you looked at their portfolio. So 100% do your homework, your baby is precious! 

My newborn photo shoots are available to book from as early as your 20 week scan. It is advisable to get booked in early, as just this month I have turned away several babies for being too old and lack of availability in the diary as I am fully booked most of the time.

Take a look on my website at my work, and if you like it get in touch, I would love to hear from you!
