Congratulations on your new bundle of joy!
They change so quickly in those first few weeks. Photographing newborns is a huge passion of mine and being a mum myself, I know this time is so precious and I feel truly honoured I get to capture these moments for you.
I have been photographing newborns for over 5 years now and I am very passionate about my work. I love the finer details like the straight posed fingers and squishy toes. I care for your baby as if they were my own and your baby’s safety is my utmost number one priority in every session. I might steal a few cuddles along the way too. As a specialist photographer, I am proud to be a Qualified Newborn and Baby Photographer, through The Guild of Photographers and also a member of the Newborn and Baby Photography Assiociation.
My sessions will give you timeless images and cherished memories for you to look back on for years to come.
We took our miracle baby for her newborn shoot when she was 26 days old, but being born 5 weeks early she is still a tiny little precious bundle. Hayley was amazing from the start. We felt completely at ease and actually asked Hayley if she could do the ‘Night Shift’ as she was just so good at keeping Isla asleep! We found the whole experience amazing to watch being done. We knew Hayley had captured some amazing shots BUT then we received the images!! Absolutely stunning!! We have never seen images like it and they just captured our little girl so well and her little ways too. We would 100% recommend Hayley to anyone wanting a newborn photos. We will be going back for every milestone we can
Your shoot will last around 2 – 3 hours, making sure we have time to capture lots of images for you.

From the minute my husband and I arrived with our two sons (who are 7 years and 7 days old) Hayley was patient, professional, calm and accommodating. As a family we felt very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed watching Hayley work her magic creating some amazing images. Hayley made sure the studio was warm and cosy to ensure my baby was comfortable. I can not thank Hayley enough for the the most adorable images and positive experience!
When shall I book?
I can book you in as early as your 20 week scan. Most people book in well in advance to secure their space as I do get booked up rather quickly. If your little one has already arrived or due to arrive soon, don’t worry, I may be able to squeeze you in so please do still get in contact. I would book you in roughly 2 weeks after your due date. If baby arrives early/late, don’t worry we will just move your session for the right time.
When is it best to photograph my baby?
I find the best age for your baby is between 5 – 14days so they are still very sleepy and curly to create those beautiful womb like poses. If your baby is slightly over, don’t worry. I have photographed newborns in these poses up to 6 weeks old. They will just be more alert and need more patience to get them asleep. If not, awake shots are just as beautiful too.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes when booking, I require a £49 deposit to secure your space. This will then be deducted from your chosen collection and the remaining balance is to be paid on the day of your session.
How long is the session?
The session can last anything between 2-3 hours. This allows enough time for me to provide you with a variety of images for you and those all important feeds and nappy changes if needed.
My sessions are all baby-led and I will go at your baby’s pace. Not every baby will want to sleep, not every baby will want to be posed in certain positions and because of that no two shoots are ever the same. I only book one session a day to make sure you feel relaxed and don’t feel rushed if we slightly go over.
Can I bring my other children?
Yes of course. All newborn sessions include family and sibling photos.
What happens after the session?
After your session, I will carefully hand edit your images for you. These will be ready to view from your private online gallery within 2 weeks of your session
