Newborn Lifestyle Photography

If you’re looking for Surrey baby photographer who specialises in relaxed, newborn lifestyle sessions at home then you’re in the right place!

My newborn photography is about the simplicity of a natural newborn and their family.

Yes, there is lots of beautiful, posed, prop-based, newborn photography around… but that’s not what you’ll get from me. I focus on the natural bonding and connection between your new little one and his / her immediate family members.

A big advantage of newborn lifestyle photography is that your baby doesn’t have to be less than 12 days old (as they do with posed, newborn photography). The ideal time for newborn, lifestyle photography is when your baby is around 6-8 weeks old.

Based in Epsom, I offer sessions, at your home, across Surrey and South West London.

This page contains details about The ExperiencePrices, a Booking Form & FAQs. Take a look around and if you have any questions then don't hesitate to get in touch!

“Paula captured our new little family in a way that really warms our hearts and everyone who has seen the photos has commented on how natural, loving and beautiful they are! I cannot wait to hang my prints in the house!”
Catherine (Google review)
“We didn’t have great light but somehow you worked your magic as the photos are beautiful”

The Experience

With a newborn lifestyle session, I keep everything as straightforward as possible to take the pressure off you. I’ll pop over to talk through how the session can work at your home and which rooms we’ll use (usually main bedroom and / or nursery), help you choose what everyone is going to wear, and give you tips for displaying your beautiful images in your home for the impact you’re looking for.


I understand that cost is a consideration when choosing the right photographer for your family so I have included all prices on my website to ensure they are simple and transparent. There are no hidden costs or hard sales at the end. My clients typically spend anything from £440 upwards their baby's photography (including products).

The pricing is split into two parts. Session Fee and Products.

The Session Fee includes:

  • In-person consultation at your home
  • Up to 2.5 hours photography session including breaks for feeding etc.
  • My time carefully selecting & beautifully editing your best images

Your Baby's Photoshoot in 4 Simple Steps

Fill out the form and I’ll be in touch to arrange a face-to-face chat, at your home, within 2 working days.

Once we've found a suitable date that works with your baby's schedule, you'll need to pay a deposit (session fee) to secure it.
Payment can be made online by debit / credit card or BACS transfer.

Relax and enjoy the shoot. The shoot will be around 2 - 2.5 hours in the comfort of your own home. We’ll take a break for feeding, changing, sleeping whenever your baby needs one.

After 2-3 weeks, your beautiful photos will have been edited and uploaded to your private, online gallery.

You will receive a link and a password where you’ll be able to log in and choose your favourite images. You'll be able to purchase an image collection and other products from there.

Once you've paid for your image collection you'll be able to download your digital files immediately. Your printed products will follow in the post soon afterwards!

The ideal age for a newborn lifestyle session is when she is 6 – 8 weeks old. She will still look like a newborn then but will be able to smile, lift her head a little & will need fewer feeds / sleeps by then.


With this age 2 1/2 hours is usually enough time for the photo session and feeds, sleeps. However, I’m not a clock watcher and if you or your little one need more time, then it’s not a problem.

Usually newborn sessions take place in a master bedroom and/or your baby’s nursery but can be in any room. The ideal room will have:

  • Lots of natural light - especially near to the bed / area being used for the photos.
  • Plenty of room for me to maneouvre and take shots from different angles
  • Light / white bed linen to bounce light around the room on onto little faces
  • Neutral decor to give your photos a timeless feel

Your decor will obviously feature in the photos so make sure there isn’t anything on show that you don’t want to appear in them. Before you book, I will pop over to visit your home to check that it will work for the shoot and suggest different places at your home we can use.

I have children of my own so I understand what it’s like have a newborn. It’s no problem to reschedule if you need to – your booking fee will just be moved to a new convenient date. I would appreciate a minimum of 48 hours’ notice if possible.
