Newborn photography sessions usually take around 3-4 hours and are completely baby led.  For this reason I only book one newborn session in a day so that I can give my time and full attention to the session.  Preferably for this session babies need to be aged between 5 days and 3 weeks old.  However, I understand for various reasons this isn't always possible so please just give me a call for a chat about your options if baby is a little older.

At present newborn photography is an unregulated industry where many photographers are putting babies in unsafe poses and taking unneccesary risks.  I am very proud to say that I am one of very few photographers accross South Wales that holds a newborn safety certification with the Master Photography Association.  Your babies safety is paramount to me.  Before specialising in newborn portraiture I spent time training with one of the leading newborn photographers in the Uk.  

Most parents have commented on how gentle and caring I am with their newborn baby throughout the session.  With children of my own and having photographed many babies over the years, I can say I have plenty of experience of handling newborn babies and have learnt soothing techniques as well.  

"What an absolutely amazing experience.  Had our little girls pictures done today.  Due to unforseen circumstances, we were not able to make it until she was 6 weeks old.  Jo has been so accommodating and is the only photographer I will be using in the future!! So caring and professional and amazing with the little ones! Thankyou Ladybird Photography!!

"Just had our newborn baby shoot with Jo.  It exceeded all our expectations.  Not only is Jo patient with the babies, she also takes time to calm and cradle them between photos.  At no point was the baby under any stress or uncomfortable, she loved it.  Would recommend to everyone".

All the images are available to view back at the studio for a viewing session approximately 1-2 weeks after your session, where you can choose from a range of stunning products to compliment your newborn baby photographs.  

Due to the nature of the session only the baby and his/her parents will be able to attend the session.  If you have any other siblings you would also like photographed with the baby please disucss this with me before the session so we can make arrangements.
