Henry | Fresh 48 | Bedfordshire Newborn Photography

I was recently introduced to the idea of fresh 48 style newborn sessions. These, as the name suggests, take place within the first 48 hours after baby has been born and can take place at home or at hospital. These are ideal for people who want to capture that first day but don’t want their whole labour/birth documented. I’m going to share a little bit more about these sessions soon as I really hope to do more of them but for now I thought I would give you a glimpse of Henry’s session from last week!


I am thrilled with the photos Jane took of our baby boy at just 24 hours old. Jane was on alert for Henry’s arrival, and was available to come to our home at a time that suited us. The photoshoot was so relaxed and calm. Baby Henry stayed happy throughout the shoot, and didn’t mind us having a couple of backdrop changes. Jane’s natural style is just perfect. I know I will treasure these photos for years to come. Simply the best professional photos we have ever had, thank you! - Abby Indge

The Banks Family | Family Lifestyle Shoot | Scottish Family Photography

Although I am based in Bedfordshire, I can often be found visiting family in Scotland and Wales and I am always happy to take bookings while I'm there. My most recent trip up north included a  relaxed shoot for this family at their beautiful home near Dundee.  

At home sessions are quickly becoming my favourite kind of shoots to do; spending time with families in the comfort of their own home and capturing the magic in the little things they do together everyday.  Everything changes so fast, children grow in the blink of an eye and the things you do together one day have changed to something else the next - I love being able to record lasting memories of these moments that might otherwise be forgotten as we move on to the next age and stage. 

Here are a few of my favourites from this session...

Winter | Newborn Lifestyle Shoot | Bedfordshire Newborn Photography

As I am sure you will agree, the first few weeks after having a baby are such a special time that pass far too quickly.  It is such an honour to be invited into people's homes in the midst of it all to capture it.  I often wish I could go back and relive those precious first days of my own children so a  newborn lifestyle session is the perfect way to remember those moments when your memories become hazy with hormones and sleep depravation. 

Little Winter was just under two weeks old when I did her newborn session.  I was reliably informed she liked to sleep all day and party all night, but obviously it was far too exciting to have her photos taken and only when we had nearly finished did she finally drift off.
