Memories Forever Frozen In Time …

Incredible & treasured Newborn PhotoShootS

By Emma Lowe

The first few weeks of your baby’s life are precious and bring so much joy. With a Newborn photoshoot with me, we can encapsulate these memories with beautiful photography. Using only the best quality equipment and lighting you can be confident that your photographs will be the perfect keepsake to cherish forever. 

 

 

I’m Emma Lowe, an ex nursery nurse, a mother of three and a photographer specialising in newborn portrait photography. I work from my home-studio based in Rugby and regularly welcome families with their new babies to get a photoshoot of their first weeks in the world. My cosy home studio provides a safe, comfortable backdrop for our photoshoot together, with off-road parking, refreshments and a comfy sofa to relax on – it’s the ideal location to enjoy your photoshoot experience. 

 

I have had the pleasure of welcoming both local families and those from further away, and I always endeavour to ensure they receive exactly what they wanted.

ABOUT YOUR NEWBORN PhotoShoot

RElax WITH THE PROFESSIONAL ....

I am very lucky to be able to work from my own, purpose-built home studio. This space is the ideal environment for my newborn photoshoots providing warmth, safety and a comfortable atmosphere. My home studio is equipped with all of the best professional equipment along with plenty of photography lighting so that we never have to depend on a sunny day to get the best pictures. 

 

 

To get the perfect photographs, I draw on my skills from being an ex nursery nurse, a mother of three and a specialist in newborn photography. I have plenty of experience in wrapping, posing and dress your baby to make your visions come to life. I am also fully DBS certified. 

 

My upmost priorities during any shoot is your baby’s safety and comfort. I have great heating in my studio to keep them nice and snug throughout and most babies enjoy their photoshoot experience just as much as their parents! 

 

 

For the newborn pictures of your baby curled up either in your arms, on a fur or on a prop, I recommend booking your photoshoot within baby’s first 2 weeks. I endeavour to take 4-5 variations of this pose with different backgrounds and tones so that you can choose your favourites.

What to Bring To the Shoot?

ESSENTIALS & FAVOURITE PROPS

All of my newborn photoshoots are held in my cosy home studio in Rugby. I have curated the ideal set up of professional equipment and lighting along with a selection of outfits, wraps, throws and headbands for you to choose from whilst you are here. 

 

For an additional personal touch, you could bring some special items, toys or outfits with you to incorporate into your photographs too. 

 

 

For the most seamless, stress-free experience I recommend bringing plenty of nappies and plenty of milk, maybe more than you think you may need!

HOW LONG DO THE Newborn PHOTOSHOOTS LAST?

2-4 HOurs - (AverAGE 3HRS)

Some parents may be feeling a little anxious about their photoshoot. Babies aren’t known for following instructions too well! But there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. As a specialist in newborn photography, I have curated the perfect format for the day which allows plenty of time to get all of the photos you are looking for whilst also allowing plenty of time for feed breaks, nappy changes and snuggles! 

 

In the 3-4 hours you’re with me, I aim to make every photoshoot relaxed, patient and fun! Both you and your baby will be made to feel very comfortable before any photos are taken, some babies even choose to take a nap!

Colours & Props

BRING THE RAINBOW .....

Upon arrival, you will be able to browse through my selection of props, throws, blankets, outfits, headbands and more! Not only do these items help generate more ideas for images whilst you’re with me, but they are thoroughly cleaned between each photoshoot meaning you can use any of them you wish!

 

 

I usually encourage parents to bring along a selection of outfits, blankets or other special items from home too so that we’ve got plenty to choose from on the day. Think about which colours, tones or accents you’d like to feature in your images and if you plan to decorate your home with your photographs, perhaps consider which of these would look best with your decor.

COSTS & IMAGE PACKAGES

AFFORDABLE & FLEXIBLE .....

To ensure you are only ever paying for what you want, with no hidden costs, I split my newborn photoshoot payments into two parts. This way, you will always know exactly what you are paying for

 

Part 1 – Book and pay for your newborn photography session. This payment is due before the day of the photoshoot. 

 

Part 2 – Choose your image collection. Collections starting from £100 – £395

 

My packages are competitively priced to allow as many new parents to enjoy this experience as possible, and I offer 4 month payment plans for any orders over £100 for those budgets this suits better. This payment structure also allows you to see my work in person, during your shoot, before making the commitment to editing and completing your images.

EDITING TIME & EDITING INCLUDED

ThE MAgic Software ....

Right after our photoshoot, I will filter through all of the raw images and prepare them into a secure online portal for you to browse. These unedited images will be watermarked, as per industry standards, and you will have the opportunity to choose which of your images you’d like me to edit and finish for you. 

 

 

All basic editing including; light adjustments, hair and skin adjustments, small removals and cropping are all included in your package price. Most families only ever require this level of editing to get the perfect results. I do also offer a more complex level of editing which may include splicing two images together or manipulating an image a lot. This additional service is charged at £75/hour. 

 

Please allow up to 4-8 weeks for your edits to be completed. I can sometimes offer express editing which would cut this time shorter, however, this does involve you needing to choose your images quickly after the shoot. 

 

 

I am also very happy to provide quotes for physical copies, prints or photo albums of your pictures – just ask!

HOME STUDIO vs HIGH STREET STUDIO

Personalised & Relaxed

My purpose-built home studio is ready to welcome you and your little ones in and be a warm, cosy environment perfect for taking beautiful photos. Whilst your baby enjoys a little nap and having their first few weeks documented in photo – browse through my portfolio of work and relax on a comfy sofa with a refreshment. 

 

With gentle, instrumental background music and a welcoming environment – sit back, chat with me and enjoy your photoshoot experience with me. My only ask is that you please don’t take videos or photos of your own whilst we’re in the studio.

How My Newborn Photography Works

01

Enjoy My Gallery

To gather some ideas and to see the calibre of my work, have a look through the images on this site. Naturally, images on the website are never as sharp as the real images as they’d take ages to load up on the website. This will give you some ideas and shows the calibre of my Newborn Photography.

02

Let’s Chat

I love to begin every new client relationship with a chat and learn exactly they really want, and also offer some of my own ideas that they may never have considered. This chat is very relaxed and we can chat about everything from your due dates, to sessions dates, to costs, to payment plans, to styles, or just about anything else.

03

Book In Your Session

My photography slots are in high demand and do get booked up quickly and I’ll always do my utmost to get you a slot that works for the both of us. The quicker we book in the better. Normally we’ll choose a date for the photoshoot soon after your due date. This tends to works out just fine, but sometimes if births are early or late, we’ll adapt.

04

Enjoy The Shoot

My clients all agree that my home studio is a relaxed, comfortable, warm space, to allow my clients to fully enjoy the shoot. During the shoots, we have some fun, try different ideas and if you need to stop for feeding etc, we just stop and chat, until we are ready to try again. 

05

Preview Your Images

Once I’ve taken all of the photographs, I’ll get the watermarked images into a preview state for you to review on a shared digital portal. This allows you to consider which Image Bundle you wish to purchase, having seen the images and decided on your favourites. Only the pictures you choose will go onto be edited so that you only receive the best of the best.

06

Select Image Package

During any given shoot, I can take many photographs. Luckily, selecting your favourites couldn’t be easier. All the preview images have unique numbers which you can provide, along with your chosen Image Bundle (Image Bundles are sets of images for a fixed price). Then I can start the Finalisation and Touching process.

07

Finalisation & Touching

Due to my photography style, experience & set up, post image editing is usually pretty minimal. Mostly, edited will consist of light finalisation (i.e. cropping, light adjustments and touching such as blemish, skin and hair adjustments). Complex editing, such as splicing (swapping parts of images), isn’t included but if you have a specific idea in mind, this is advanced editing and chargeable at a separate rate. Please allow 2-8 weeks depending on workload and holidays.

08

Review & Sign Off

Following the finalisation processes, Your images will become available via a digital preview portal for you to review and sign off. Any additional, minor edits you may want can be completed quickly at this stage. Once you are happy with your images and have signed off, we can prepare for release of your images. Full payment will be required before the watermark can be removed which is an industry standard. All the images are fully licensed for your personal use.

09

Enjoy Your Images

I provide many Image Bundle options which suit a range of budgets. Whether you’ve chosen physical prints of your images or a digital-only package, you can now enjoy these captured snaps of a special day.
