Thea Courtney is an experienced London-based newborn photographer with a natural and authentic style. Relaxed, naturally lit newborn baby photography sessions take place in your own home when your baby is fresh to the planet (ie when they sleep a lot!) I like to use my macro lens to get all the little details that are so special about this time…the milk spots, soft downy hair, flakes of new skin and teeny tiny fingers and toes. The first few weeks can pass in a blur and its a great time to get some photographs taken so that you can revisit this amazing time when things settle back to normal. I see these sessions as a celebration…of bringing a new member of the family into the world and also capturing in time all the cuddles, rocking, soothing and feeding in the comfort of your own home. There’s no pressure about time, so we take as many milk and nappy breaks as you need, but I try to be as as quick as possible so that there’s no disruption to your new routine.
Contact me as soon as possible before, or after, the birth to plan and arrange a bespoke session.
Lasting around two hours, sessions are baby led and we take as many breaks as your newborn baby needs. I use only natural light, and capture your newborn baby in a relaxed, authentic and creative style in the comfort of your own home. Images are available in both black and white and colour, and we will get a range of different backgrounds in and around the areas of your home that have the best light, setting the scene for beautiful, natural images.
I don’t pose the baby and there is no studio lighting at all…just you being you, holding your baby as you would normally in beautiful natural daylight.
