Natural Newborn Photography by Echo
Organic….. Creative….. Relaxed…..
Why Choose Echo?
When you are choosing a photographer for your baby photos you want to know that your baby is in good hands. Whilst some photographers cover all areas such as weddings, pets, events etc, I have chosen to be a specialist in Pregnancy and Newborn Photography. I have invested (and continue to invest) in specific newborn photography workshops and safety training to achieve outstanding results for my clients.
I would 100% recommend Sally to anyone thinking of getting gorgeous pictures of their newborn in their first few days. She immediately made me and my baby feel relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our photo shoot from the comfort of our own home. I’m in love with the photos she captured! Will definitely be using Echo Baby Photography again in the future!
“A very relaxed shoot”
Sally is wonderful. All her kit, her eye for a stunning picture, and her warm personality meant we had a very relaxed shoot (with a 7 day old this amazed me!). As a result we got some absolutely beautiful photos of our son, which everyone has loved, and in colours that fit our home and personalities. I’d recommend Echo Baby and having these photos to everyone. Thank you so much Sally.
“Professional and patient”
I can’t rate sally enough, she is an amazing photographer with some great ideas on how to capture the most beautiful photos.
She’s very professional, patient and nothing was ever too much trouble, we have some truly beautiful pictures that we will treasure for ever, thank you again.
Highly recommended, Sally is very professional in her work. She kept my newborn very calm ensuring she was kept warm and with soothing sounds for her to listen to. Wonderful experience and beautiful photos thank you.
Amazing photographer. I absolutely love both my maternity photos and new born shoot! Can’t wait to use Sally again for our next baby. She had a friendly and welcoming environment and made me feel completely at ease in those early days of becoming a mum it’s quite daunting going anywhere but Sally made us feel completely at home!
“Results are fantastic”
The results are fantastic we have some very special memories of our little one thanks to her, the positions and settings were great. Sally was an absolute professional she was great with our son and we felt very comfortable letting her in into our home.
“Super positive experience”
Sally has been absolutely amazing in all stages of the process, she was easy to communicate with, was very flexible with timing of the photoshoot, but most importantly, you never feel “rushed” or uncomfortable during the photoshoot, we took as many breaks as we needed, she clearly loves what she does and does it brilliantly. Our family loved the photos, it is something amazing to keep as babies grow up so fast. Photos were more than I expected and overall, super positive experience!
“Best photographer we have come across by far”
A wonderful experience from start to finish! Sally was amazing with our boys and put us all at ease from the moment we met. She was incredibly professional and we are totally over the moon with the photos she took. The personal touches she adds to her products show how much time and care she takes to create something very special. The best photographer we have come across by far – highly recommend!
“A lovely experience”
Absolutely amazing service from Sally, very friendly and professional – we enjoyed the whole experience and it was so reassuring seeing the way she handled my newborn – you can tell she’s a mum herself! I just sat by and watched her create the wonderful poses and set ups that went on to create such beautiful photos – I felt totally relaxed knowing he was in good hands. In fact he slept through the whole thing while I had my feet up drinking coffee! A lovely experience that I would recommend to any new parent.
Sally is extremely professional and very friendly. She captured some beautiful images of our newborn daughter and kept us all at ease while she worked. We would highly recommend booking with Echo Baby Photography – you won’t be disappointed!
“Precious and amazing pictures”
Absolutely amazing. My experience with Echo Photography was a dream from start to finish. Sally was wonderful, she came to my home while my son Ed was just 8 days old and her care for Ed (and for me!) was amazing. The set up was minimal, she caused no fuss at all and didn’t worry about any mess. She was so gentle with my newborn, and did not try to put him any unnatural poses at all. And the pictures! My goodness, they are so precious and amazing. Highly recommended. Thank you Sally.
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.
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.
