Newborn Portraits

Newborn Photo Shoot Experience

Somerset’s leading Newborn Photography Specialists.

Newborn Photo Shoot Experience…Because you only get one chance to capture those memories!

Timeless Images offer professional Newborn Experiences to capture the natural beauty of your Newborn baby.

Posing these tiny, precious little bundles takes time and patience, you simply can’t rush a baby. Therefore, it’s not unusual for Newborn photo shoot to last between 2 and 4 hours. This also includes time for feeds and for changing props and outfits.

Our Newborn Experience typically takes place when your baby is between 7-21 days old, so we recommend booking in advance of your due date is essential to be able to guarantee your Newborn session.  The safety of your Newborn baby is of the utmost importance to us, and we want you to be confident that you are in safe and qualified hands with many years of specialised training and experience. 

Included in your Newborn Experience is a 10×12 framed print of your choice!

“Absolutely Amazing service. I won a Newborn Experience package which i entered on a whim. Garry was amazing with my daughter during the photoshoot, and the photos were wonderful. I ended up buying a huge frame that I hang in my living room with pride. I’m so happy I have these treasured memories 100 % recommend.”

Carrianne, Bridgwater

“We had newborn shoot with Garry, Timeless were great in giving us info leading up to the photoshoot. Once we were in the studio Garry made us feel at ease and was brilliant with our newborn. The reviewing of photos was easy to do & Garry allowed us to choose what suited us best. Would definitely recommend. Thank you the photos are brilliant!”

Ben & Amelia, Bridgwater

What to Expect & FAq's

We cannot wait to welcome you to our baby-friendly studio.  As parents ourselves, we know that the first few days will be a whirlwind and so your Newborn Experience is a time for you to sit back, relax and enjoy a whole cup of tea or coffee!   We want you to be as relaxed as possible so this should give you an idea of what will happen. 

When is the best time to book a Newborn photo Shoot?

It’s best to book your newborn photo session before your baby is born. We suggest doing this after your 20-week scan so that we can make sure we have availability for your session. We’ll set a ‘Floating Date’  about 7 days after your due date and make your booking a priority.  Your ‘floating date’ will more than likely NOT be the date of your Newborn Photoshoot so please let us know your baby has arrived so we can confirm the booking.  We will also provide you with all the details you need to prepare for your session. Read more about a ‘Floating Date’ in our Blog

Can I have a maternity Photo Shoot?

Yes, of course, you can! We love bump sessions and will gift this to you with our compliments so you can celebrate this awesome time and get the chance to meet us before the baby arrives. It’s best taken at 34-36 weeks just in case the baby decides to make an early appearance! This is taken entirely in your comfort zone on how much you want to bare!

Please do think about personalising your Maternity Session.  We do have some dresses that you can use if you wish but we will guide you as to what to bring for your Maternity Photo Shoot.  Please read more on our Maternity and Newborn Page

When should newborn photos be taken?

In our experience, we find that photographing your teeny tiny baby when they are 7-21 days new is best. They are still very sleepy and curly. The only time this will change is if the baby arrives very early! 

All sessions take place in our professional, baby-friendly studio, in Bridgwater, Somerset, and take place on weekdays generally while your partner is still on paternity leave. We allow 2-3 hours for the session. This allows for feeding, changing, and settling.  We’ll have plenty of cookies, tea, and coffee to keep you going. Some parents have even been known to catch forty winks.

What if...?

Newborns can be unpredictable so ‘what if’ is a question we hear a lot! 

What if my baby wants a feed?

Your little one will need a feed at some point during the session so we will give you the time and space to do this in peace. Garry will leave the studio, just open the door when you are ready to begin the shoot again!

What if my baby is a bit jaundiced, or has flaky skin?

No problem…we will be able to enhance any images to make them perfect (including skin colouring, baby milk spots, dry skin, etc)

What if my baby will not sleep?

Don’t worry – All babies when they are comfy and content will sleep and we have lots of patience, experience, and that with a lovely relaxing environment for your baby and you. 

More answers to questions you may have can be found here.  If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us – no question is a silly question – we promise!

Can we have family images?

As a new family, this is the very first time you will have the opportunity to have a family portrait taken. We encourage you to come prepared to have your photograph taken, but it’s not compulsory. 

If you already have children, then we will arrange for them to be included either at the beginning or towards the end of the session. They are very important at this stage, and you may find that Garry talks to them more than you to help them be at ease!  

What do we need to bring to our newborn photo shoot?

When you arrive at the studio, Garry will have a quick chat about what you want from the session and just go over how the next few hours will be.  Your photoshoot will be a totally relaxed experience and we will be totally driven by your baby. If your baby is settled and happy that’s great. If your baby needs lots of feeds and plenty of cuddles that’s absolutely fine too! This is a new environment for them so please don’t rush or be worried –  we are quite used to it and add in time for feeding and settling. 

We supply all of these and have a large collection to choose from depending on your preferences. Garry will go through this as you arrive to check

We love it when parents personalise their Newborn Photoshoot! if there is anything that you have been given by a family member or friend that you want to include in your session then please bring this with you.  on colours and styles that will suit you and your home. 

When can we see our images from our newborn Photo Shoot?

After your studio session Newborn Experience, we’ll walk you through our photography gallery and explain the different options.

You’ll also get a product guide to take away and look through before your viewing, which we will arrange for a time convenient to us all.   This is generally around 7-10 days after your photo shoot.  

We recommend that you take a look around your home to see if you would like artwork for the wall or an album to keep!
