Incredible & treasured Newborn PhotoShootS
By Emma Lowe
Congratulations to you new mummies and mummies to be, this is such a truly amazing time (I know, I’ve had three little ones myself) and I’m honoured to capture these precious moments on camera for you to enjoy for many years to come.
I’m Emma Lowe, a specialist full-time Newborn Photographer based in the Midlands. I’m very fortunate to operate my Newborn photoshoots from my professional home studio, which mummies hail to be a godsend with its relaxed, warm, calming and safe environment, completely removing the pressure of traveling and coping with your new little ones. And an added bonus is the off street parking which makes life even easier.
I have mummies travel from all over the Midlands and some come from all over the UK for my Newborn Photoshoots, which is based on a timeless and natural style of beautiful photography.

ABOUT YOUR NEWBORN Shoot
RElax WITH THE PROFESSIONAL ....
My Newborn Photoshoots are all about having a great experience for you and your baby, whilst I capture the most incredible Newborn Photographs that you and your family will love for many years to come in a relaxed and safe environment. The sessions are held at my professional home studio, with all my specialist equipment and lighting. With a nice sofa and extra heating to keep baby warm and snug !!
My Newborn Photoshoots draw on my years of experience but also my specialist’s skills to dress, wrap, position, and pose your baby safely, to get the most adorable photos. Your Newborn baby’s comfort and safety always come first and most babies enjoy the experience as much as the parents, except those Newborns that like to sleep right through the session blissfully unaware of the beautiful photographs we have captured.
You may also like to know that I’m an ex-Nursery Nurse and Dental Nurse, as well as having three children of my own, which just adds to my experience. I’m also fully DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certified / checked 2021.
To achieve those very cute sleepy curled-up images the Newborn Photoshoots are best booked within the baby’s first two weeks or within the first 21 days. I try to aim for four to five creative ideas, these could be curled up on whites, curled up in furs, posing your baby in a box, basket, or bucket, surrounding them with cuddly toys, or curling them up in your arms.
What to Bring To the Shoot?
ESSENTIALS & FAVOURITE PROPS
The sessions are held at my professional home studio, with all my specialist equipment and lighting, this means everything from outfits, wraps, stuffies and props are all available to choose when you arrive.
I do encourage if you have a special or meaningful item to the little one you bring that along for me to incorporate into your photoshoot.
One big thing to remember is plenty of milk as it can become thirsty work being a model, and plenty of nappies. You would be surprised sometimes how many nappies your little one can go through in a photoshoot!
HOW LONG DO THE BABY PHOTOSHOOTS LAST?
2-4 HOurs - (AverAGE 3HRS)
My Newborn Photoshoot sessions are created to be very relaxed and to put you and your baby first at every step. My Newborn Photoshoots can last between 3 – 4 hours, allowing plenty of time to stop whether that’s to settle your baby, feed, nappy changes, or even just to have a 5-minute chat about what each setup offers.
The Newborn Photoshoots are designed to be patient, relaxed and fun!
Please do not be anxious, I’m a professional and have three children of my own, so I certainly know it can be hard and stressful caring for a Newborn and I love helping you. Even though its a little daunting to think up to 4 hours for your little ones to have a photoshoot, don’t worry at all, you can simply sit and relax, chat to me the whole time or just sit back and take in the ambience, your little ones won’t notice they are in a shoot.
Most of my parents end up so relaxed they start guessing which theme songs are playing from my instrumental music in the background!
Colours & Props
BRING THE RAINBOW .....
Your Newborn Photoshoot includes the use of all my selections of throws, wraps, props, and headbands which will all be washed and cleaned after each and every session. Up on arrival, you’ll be able to choose what colours you wish and look at the various wraps and props. You are welcome to bring along any favourite toys, items, props, and outfits to add that personal touch. I always like to get you to think about the colours throughout your home, as your images should be of similar tones to suit your home if you were thinking of having some framed wall decor from your photo shoot.
COSTS & IMAGE PACKAGES
AFFORDABLE & FLEXIBLE .....
My Newborn Photography Prices are segregated in two parts to provide you with maximum flexibility and control:
STEP 1 – You simply book and pay for your Newborn Photography Session the payment is due before the shoot day.
STEP 2 – You then choose your Newborn Photography Image Collection, Collections starting from £100 – £395
The Newborn Photography prices are segregated to allow my parents to enjoy the Baby Photoshoot without the pressure to buy their Image Collection until they have a feel for the photography taken and even seen some initial examples. This prevents parents from having to layout for images without understanding what they are buying and it allows parents to select higher packages with confidence in the quality and variety of newborn photographs. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. I do offer 4 month payment plans for orders over £100.
EDITING TIME & EDITING INCLUDED
ThE MAgic Software ....
Following your Newborn Photoshoot, your images will be reviewed by Emma and filtered in readiness to showcase with you via a secure digital portal. All images will have watermarks until final payment is received. This allows you to enjoy reviewing your images at your leisure or with loved ones from the secure digital portal.
The selected images will undergo any light editing and final touching as required (this excludes advanced editing). Light editing and final touching, includes cropping, lighting adjustments, colour changes, skin and hair adjustments and various removals, to make your images even sharper.
Please provide between 4-8 weeks as a guide to have your images edited. This can be quicker if requested and does depend on the speed of your responses to reviewing and selecting your images. All images are watermarked and will not be released until payment is fully received as an industry norm.
If you require advanced editing, such as splicing two images or significantly modifying the image, this can be discussed and is chargeable at £75 per hour due to the complexity of the work. It is rare advanced editing is requested.
If you’d like your photographs in an physical Album or Framed Prints, please speak with Emma who can provide a quote.
HOME STUDIO vs HIGH STREET STUDIO

How My Newborn Photography Works
Enjoy My Gallery
The best place to start is simply to flick through some of my images on the website. 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.
I do like to have a chat and learn exactly what my clients really want, and also offer some ideas that they may never of considered. We can chat about everything from your due dates, to sessions dates, to costs, to payment plans, to styles, or just about anything else. I’m very relaxed.
Book In Your Session
My photography slots do get booked up quickly and I’ll always do my utmost to get you booked in. The quicker we book in the better. Normally we’ll chat about your due date and pick a date after. This tends to works out just fine, sometimes if births are early or late, we’ll adapt.
Enjoy The Shoot
My clients all say the same thing, my home studio is so relaxed and warm, so my parents are all quickly enjoying the shoot. And that’s the key, 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.
Preview Your Images
After the Newborn Photoshoot, I’ll typically aim to 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.
Select Image Package
Selecting your Images 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.
Finalisation & Touching
Due to my Photography Style, Experience & Set Up, post image editing is relatively minimal, consisting of light finalisation i.e. cropping, light adjustments and touching such as blemish, skin and hair adjustments. Complex editing is not included such as splicing (swapping parts of images), albeit this is rare and only on specific request, this is advanced edited and chargeable at a separate rate. Please allow 2-8 weeks depending on workload and holidays.
Review & Sign Off
Following the Finalisation and Touching, I’ll provide the images via the digital preview portal for you to review and sign off. Any minor edits can be completed swiftly. Once you are happy 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.
Enjoy Your Images
Enjoy your images, This can be digital or print format, all books are fully bespoke with great options to suit all budgets!
