Baby Mia was 11 days old at the time of this shoot. The best time for a new-born to be photographed like this is between 5 and 10 days old whilst they're still getting used to the world. If they're well fed and kept awake for a few hours beforehand it helps to ensure a sleepy baby which is what we need to get these pictures. Even so, shoots can still last up to around 4 hours as we sooth the baby and get her into various positions.

You can book your baby shoot at any time during your pregnancy. Be sure to book early though to ensure an appointment. Find out more below.
