I recently updated my pricing list and have three packages for newborn photoshoots plus extra one called 1st Year Collection.
Basic Package which includes 5 digital images and it’s only for baby
Standard Package which includes 10 images on a disc and 10prints 5″x7″. This session includes family and sibling photos.
Deluxe Package includes 20 images on a disc, 20 prints 6″x8″ and canvas 20″x30″. This is the best selling package because includes wall art, family and sibling photos and there is lots of different set ups.
You can find all packages, prices and what’s included in each package here.
Every photographer charges accordingly to their talent and level of experience. My prices reflect the value of my time, talent and service I pour into each session which is what sets me apart and why I have so many returning clients who love not only their portraits, but the experience and value I offer them. I truly love what I do. Newborn photoshoots are my favourite and I love to create an art for you to cherish.
One of my last photoshoots:
This cute baby photoshoot has been taken in my photography studio in Preston, Lancashire.
I loved every second from this photoshoot because her big sister was cooperating so well and just made my job easy, I always recommend to bring older siblings, we usually think that it’s going to be difficult and they will not cooperate but I can assure you that most of the kids are behaving better in the studio than at home. I know you can not believe but it’s true. Sometimes we need to bribe them but that’s normal with kids. Parents usually choose McDonald or chocolate to bribe their kids.

How to choose the best photographer in Preston, the perfect match for you and your family? That question is difficult and not many people know how to find the right photographer for themselves. There is so many new, unexperienced “photographers” that you may end up being not happy with your photos. I’m going to try to answer to that question but also explain you how I work with my clients and why they come back to me, why you should trust me.
Choosing a photographer is exciting but also bit stressful as usually you don’t know who is behind the beautiful photos so first thing what I would recommend is:
ask your family and friends for referrals
search online for photographers and check their reviews, “about me” page, check if they have some photos of themself on the website so you can see who you will be working with
It is important to find the best match for yourself as those pictures you will treasure for life, you have one chance to do newborn session as babies grow too quick and when you receive the photos from photographer and you are not happy with them, your baby will be already too old for another newborn session.
Check their galleries.
Their work should sing to you, you should “feel something” looking at their pictures. You will be coming back to your baby photos for years and think about the feeling you will have, most of my customers cry when watching their baby photos. They change so quick that you will be happy you have those little feet, hands etc captured. You can find my newborn gallery here.
Their qualifications and newborn safety.
Choosing not experienced and not qualified photographer means putting your baby in a risk. Newborn session might be bit stressful on the begin and imagine giving your baby to the person you can’t trust.
I am qualified, insured and I have done loads of courses about newborn safety, posing etc. I am in this business since 5 years, I photograph hundreds babies every year.
Do you know that baby should never be left to support their own head weight or be left to balance on their own. That’s why I know many composite techniques so I can deliver some people’s favourite poses by editing them in Photoshop.
Check if they are insured.
I hope you will not need to use their insurance.
What the photographer provide for the session.
Do they have a studio with loads of props or you need to provide it yourself.
I provide all the props and outfits for newborn sessions, I have some outfits for older kids and maternity dresses too so you can always message me to check if I have size of your baby or yours booking maternity photoshoot.
I have my own studio in Preston city centre and that’s where I do newborn baby photoshoots.
The last thing is to check their pricing. A professional newborn photographer, qualified, experienced will cost you a few hundred pounds. It’s true that you get what you pay for.
The cheap photographer will not put so much love, passion, time creating your beautiful pictures, you will get so many digital photos from them but you will not be proud of them. You want your baby photos to be art, you want to put it on the wall so everyone can admire and it will be decoration on your wall.
I have been contacted so many times to book last minute as people chose the cheap photographer and been disappointed. You don’t want to feel this way. This needs to be beautiful experienced.
The photos are really worth the investment!
Do your research, ask questions and you will find the best photographer Preston!

Few things you should know before booking your baby photoshoot !
Few things you should know before booking your baby photoshoot:
1. When should I book my baby photoshoot?
The best time to book your newborn photoshoot is just after 20th week of pregnancy but at least a month or two before your due date will be fine too.
If baby has already arrived please get in touch as soon as possible, I still may have some availability.
2. What if baby arrives early or late?
If baby arrives early or late, that is no problem. I book limited number of sessions each month to make sure I can fit everyone in. I just always ask parents to contact me till 3 days after birth to arrange exact session date, the sooner you contact me, you have more dates to choose from.
3. What is the best age for baby photoshoot?
The best time for newborn session is between 5-14 days but I do newborn sessions up to 3 weeks as from my experience I know that is still okay, babies are still curly, sleepy and it’s not much more difficult to pose baby. After that time newborns starts to be more awake and stretch out.
I know they are so fragile and tiny in their first weeks but I can assure you, they are in safe hands. I photograph hundreds of babies every year and I’m doing it since 5 years.
4. How long is the newborn session?
The session time depends of the package you choose. It usually takes from 2h till 4h.
Sometimes standard session takes more than 2 hours as baby is not in a mood but that’s okay as I’m prepared for that and some bigger packages take just 2 hours because baby is sleeping so well that we don’t need more time.
5. Where the session takes place?
The session is done in my fully equipped photography studio in Preston city centre. I provide all the props and outfits for baby.
