Styling Your Session Part 1: Natural Newborn Photography


Did you know that with “Little Crumpets Photography” your newborn photography session is completely tailored to you? If you prefer natural images you are welcome to select those or if you like crazy and out there prop images, we can plan your vision together! When styling a session I ask for your favourite colours from a long list of colours that I have with props in every colour! That way if you hate girls in pink or love girls in blue, we can plan it perfectly to your vision. You are also welcome to select images from my website portfolio, my Instagram or my Facebook page that you love and would like me to recreate for you!


With each newborn photography session I have a pretty strict workflow I follow in order to get the most amount of images with the least amount of movement for baby. In this workflow I have a plan for prop images and also natural images. I love getting the best of both styles for your gallery so that you can select your favourites from the gallery that suit you best! I love prop images so I always include them but I also love seeing baby natural with simple poses, light neutral colours and with the focus purely on baby!


Many people love a natural and neutral session, don’t let my brightly coloured prop images put you off as I do both! I can tailor your session to your needs and aesthetic. If you prefer a minimal and clean look then we can work to achieve that. I often do sessions that are entirely natural, minimal and clean looking with the focus solely on baby. This is an option that you can ask for prior to your newborn session.


Newborns are best photographed from 5-14 days old due to them being more awake and less-curly that when they are fresh newborns. It is best to book your session around 20 weeks pregnant as my calendar does fill very quickly. The reason I take a limited amount of newborns per month is due to needing to be flexible for their due dates. We book for your approximate due date month and I have you contact me within 48 hours of giving birth to schedule in our exact session date. It is important to book prior to giving birth however so that I can save space in your due date month!  Email me at to secure your newborn session today!
