1)When is the best time to have my newborn photographed?

The right time to photograph a newborn baby is between 6 and 14 days old. After this babies can be a little harder to settle, as sleep patterns change and muscle tone of arms and legs develop, eliminating some posing options.

2)Where is the photo-shoot is held?

Your photo-shoot will take place in the comfort of your home as I bring my portable studio to you. I have specialised kit uniquely designed for your baby's comfort. Don't worry if you haven't got lots of space as I've set up and photographed in one bed apartments in Dublin to country homes in Kildare, Laois and nationwide.

3)How long will the session take?

Newborn sessions can take up to 3 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting. I usually suggest we begin at 10am, although I'm very flexible.

4)How should I prepare?

Ideally your baby should be kept awake for an hour before I arrive, being fed as close to the scheduled time of the photo-shoot as possible. During this feed, have your baby in a nappy only, as we will begin with unclothed shots, progressing to wraps/blankets, then clothed and finishing with family shots. Please have at least two changes of clothes for your baby (avoid loose fitting clothes). Little hats and any sentimental items such as teddy bears etc. are a great idea to include.

5)When will I see the results?

After your photo-shoot I spend a couple of days selecting your best images. Using photoshop, I create a stunning collection of black and white and selected colour images for you to choose from. I'll return to your home a few days later and present a slideshow of 20 to 30 images. At this point you pick your favourites and decide what images you'd like to purchase. If you love the idea of a digital option, allowing you to print as many copies as you like, I have U.S.B packages. If you have a special frame awaiting the perfect family photo, I offer a printing service. If you prefer a fully finished product ready to hang on your wall, you can choose from my bespoke and much loved Classic and Contemporary framed options. Check out my very competitive Prices


As I can only do one newborn photo-shoot per day, please feel free to call 0873663184 or email during the later stages of your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will make a preliminary booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your little one you should contact me to confirm a suitable time and day to call to your home.
