Natural Newborn Photography by Echo
Organic….. Creative….. Relaxed…..
Newborn Photography Specialist
In 2014 I decided to follow my heart and become a baby photography specialist. Having already worked as a family photographer since 2012 I realised that to get the best photos of these newly born little people you need lots of experience and specialist know-how. Just being a mum myself wasn’t enough. I invested in newborn specific training and completed a Diploma in Professional Photography so that I can achieve stunning results for every client.
Why Choose Echo?
When you are choosing a photographer for your baby photos you want to know that your baby is in good hands. I don’t do Wedding Photography or Pet Photography – I solely work with pregnant women and newborn babies. My mission is to create a relaxed experience for you all, resulting in truly amazing high quality photos. Photos that you will want to share, keep, frame, print and enjoy for many years to come.
Soothing and calming
As a baby specialist photographer I have worked with many many newborns. Using proven soothing techniques to ensure your baby is calm and content I use a natural posing flow which keeps your baby comfortable and happy. Warming the room up, swaddling techniques, womb sound recordings along with reading your baby’s cues to anticipate his or her needs, all ensure we keep your baby comfortable at all times.
Your baby’s safety is paramount and I have attended seminars and workshops to keep up to date with safe working practices. I counter weight every backdrop stand, never drink hot drinks at a shoot and ask one parent to act as a ‘spotter’ when using bowls and props. By clever use of editing I can create images without putting your baby at any risk. I also watch for cues so I can anticipate his or her needs and only use natural, safe poses. I’m a member of BANPAS which advocates good working practice and safe posing and provides training to it’s members.
The ‘Wow’ shot
For truly organic and creative photos, along with the handknitted hats, soft yarn blankets and bespoke props I provide seasonal flowers for a natural newborn nest. Nestling in this cosy handmade willow nest surrounded in soft neutral fabrics your baby will snooze away whilst I create some stunning photos for you. You can even let me know what your wedding flowers were so we can include something similar. The Natural Newborn Photography style is timeless for you to enjoy forever.
You can also have a bump cast made which can be used as a prop during the photoshoot. Seeing your baby sleeping inside a cast of your pregnant bump is an unforgettable experience and better still you get to keep the cast after the session. You can keep it in the baby’s nursery to store cuddly toys or even decorate with your baby’s footprints!
Professional Editing Skills
I am expert at post production editing and can perfect tiny flaws such as milk spots, jaundice, flakey skin and yes, even if your eyes look tired in your photos they can have a little edit to make them look more sparkly and less exhausted!
After your Echo Experience I want you to come away with photos you can enjoy on your walls straightaway. From birth announcements or thank you designs to mini books you can give to the grandparents, my aim is to make it easy and stress free for you. My transparent pricing structure allows you to choose from three packages which all include some digital files and prints. For more details about my packages please contact me.
Tailor made to you
In your consultation we will discuss where you are planning to hang the photos so that we can incorporate colour schemes and tones that suit your home. You might want a collage that will look great in the baby’s nursery or maybe a large ‘Wow’ print for your lounge. Whatever space you have, large or small I will create beautiful photos for you to enjoy everyday.
When is the best time for Newborn Photos?
The ideal time for your baby’s photos is from 7-10 days old or up to 4 weeks from birth. This is the time when they sleep more and will be more settled for their session. At the ideal age of 7-10 days they are also still used to being curled up in the womb which means you will get those lovely organic style snuggled up poses.
Frequently asked questions
I understand you might have lots of questions about your baby photo shoot so I’ve put together a little FAQ for you to look at. If you have any other queries that are not answered there feel free to get in touch.
