What is a Newborn Mini Photoshoot?

Very often parents will request a photoshoot to just have the essential parent and sibling shots. It may be that this is baby no 2 and you didn’t have a photoshoot for baby no1 so you don’t feel it’s fair to have the whole shebang for baby no 2, but you really would like the family images. Or it could be that you would prefer a more simplistic photoshoot with just a few images of baby and some parent shots.

For these circumstances, a mini newborn photoshoot may be just right for you.

Mini newborn photoshoots last 60 minutes and I shoot for the following images only.

  • Both parents with baby
  • Mummy with baby
  • Daddy with baby
  • Baby on beanbag in relaxed / wrapped pose
  • Close up detailed shot of babies face

Where you have another child, the 5 images are amended to the following

  • Family as a whole (parents, sibling & baby)
  • Both parents with baby only
  • Sibling with baby
  • Baby on beanbag in relaxed / wrapped pose
  • Close up detailed shot of babies face

Due to the time constraint of 60 minutes, the Newborn Mini Photoshoot can only be booked for a maximum of 1 sibling.

In order to also ensure baby is settled and content during the photoshoot, baby will be wrapped for parent & sibling shots, & loosely wrapped for their own individual images.


The newborn mini photoshoot costs £299 and includes 5 fully edited, high resolution digital images which are avail be to download.

It’s best to book your photoshoot soon after your 20 week scan to secure your session, as I do get very booked up. To book, please complete my enquiry form, with your due date or give me a call and we can chat through the booking process.

A £50 retainer is required to secure your booking. The final payment of £249 is payable on receipt of your gallery, after which your images will be made available for download upon payment.

One of my photographer friends, Claire, who offers newborn photography sessions in Belfast,  has written a very informative blog this week which covers why we photographs newborns before they reach 16 days old.
