Beautiful Newborn Photography 

Newborn Photographer Olney | Capture the Light Photography

When you have a new baby, your whole world changes. You will quickly begin to understand just how fast moments can pass when you have a little one. Babies grow and change in an instant, especially in the early days of their life. Booking a Newborn Photography session will help you to capture these moments in time – moments that are fleeting. Newborn baby photography is so much more than just pictures. It is the creation of artwork and treasured memories that you and your family will be able to  enjoy for years to come.

You can expect your newborn portrait session with me to be easy, relaxed and fun. The days following the arrival of a baby are a whirlwind of emotion, visitors and activity. Your photography session is an opportunity to slow down for a short time and savour some precious moments with your growing family. Ideally, newborn photography takes place in the first 14 days of your baby’s life, to ensure that we can capture the sleepy, curled up images that are unique to a very young baby. However, if you have missed this window then don’t despair – older babies are equally as gorgeous and have wonderful, engaging, wide-open eyes to photograph!

My approach to newborn photography is relaxed and informal. My studio is cosy, warm and very comfortable and has everything you will need to make you feel welcome. There is a coffee machine and the biscuit tin is always full! I never, ever rush during a newborn session. Your baby is in charge and we will take as many breaks for feeds and cuddles as he or she wants. I understand that you may be nervous about what will happen during your newborn session, but I will take things slowly and explain everything along the way. If you have questions, please do get in touch and ask me. It is a privilege to be able to photograph your little one – thank you for trusting me. 

I aim to provide you with the highest level of client care throughout your photographic experience and really want you to look at your photos and remember that you loved the process as much as the finished result.

How to book your newborn photography

Get in touch and find out more

Get in touch, either via my contact form on the website, by emailing or by giving me a call on 07801 811626. 

I’ll then let you know whether I have availability around your baby’s due date and send you my newborn brochure which will tell you all about the experience you can expect with Capture the Light Photography

Book your session

Once you have decided that I am the photographer for you, we will book you into the diary.

I regularly get fully booked, sometimes months in advance, so most clients book when they are around 20-26 weeks pregnant. At this point, we don’t book a date for your session as babies are very unpredictable! Instead, I reserve you a place based on your due month and we confirm your appointment date and time after your baby arrives.

To secure your session, I will send you an invoice for the booking fee. Once this is paid, your appointment is secured. 

Waiting for baby...

Once you are booked in, you can relax and wait for your baby’s arrival

Take this time to look through my gallery of images, and to browse through my Facebook and Instagram. If there is anything you particularly love, I’ll try my best to re-create it with your baby!

If you have any questions at all while you wait for your baby to arrive, please do get in touch and I’ll do my very best to answer all your queries. 

Preparing for your session

When baby has arrived, pop me a message to let me know. Then we can look at the available dates and get your appointment booked in the first 2-3 weeks after baby’s birth, all being well.

I’ll send you a questionnaire so that you can tell me all about yourselves, your new baby and the props and colours you would like to include.

I’ll send you a few hints and tips on how to prepare for your session, too!


At the end of your photography appointment, we’ll make an appointment for you to come back to view and order your edited images. This usually takes place around a week or two later.

This is your opportunity to select your favourites and decide what you would like to purchase from your session. You can also request any special editing that you would like to take place, too.

Your order is usually delivered within 4 weeks. All wall art comes with a string or a hook and is ready to hang on your walls!
