Why should I book a Newborn Photoshoot?

Welcome to Lucy Rose Studios! I’m thrilled to have you here. If you’re a new parent, a soon-to-be parent, or just someone who can’t resist tiny toes and chubby cheeks, you’ve come to the right place. Today, I’m diving into why a newborn photoshoot is a must-have experience.

People often message me 2-3 months post partum and say how much they regret not having booked in a newborn session. Whilst it is NEVER too late, they really are that tiny, scrunchy newborn for a very short period and once they start to grow, they don’t stop. Booking in whilst you are pregnant ensures that we don’t miss that gorgeous little period.

But let’s break it down..

They’re only this tiny once! Let’s face it – babies grow faster than you can say “pass the nappies.” A newborn photoshoot captures the details, the hairy shoulders, the scrunchy nose, the bubble-blowing pouty lips, the tiny toes and everything in between. These are the things you’ll want to remember when they’re all grown up and asking for the car keys.

Sleeping babies! Newborns spend most of their time sleeping (when they’re not asking for food or a nappy change, of course). This is prime time for capturing those serene poses that will make your heart melt every time you look at them. After that two week period, they tend to sleep much less and can start to have some tummy bubbles as they grow making them a little more unsettled. That first 7-10 days really is the optimum time to capture your scrunch.

It’s a family affair. A newborn photoshoot isn’t just about the baby – it’s about the whole family. Whether it’s big siblings proudly holding their new baby brother or sister, or parents gazing lovingly at their little bundle of joy, these moments are priceless.

It also gives you and your family some uninterrupted time together. No hospital trips, no midwives, no health visitors and no family or friends popping their head in or calling. Whilst all are necessary and lovely, it can be quite intense during that first few weeks that you’re trying to get to know one another. Having some time just for YOU, is absolutely key.

No props, no problems! At Lucy Rose Studios, I really believe in keeping it simple. No need for elaborate props or gimmicks – just pure, timeless, natural light and your beautiful baby.

In the historic city of York, I’m blessed with some of the most enchanting natural light. My studio is designed to make the most of this light, creating soft, warm, and inviting photos that you’ll cherish forever. This approach ensures that the focus stays where it should – on your newborn’s unique personality, on your family and nothing more.

Time flies but photos last forever. Those early days with your newborn might feel like a blur of sleepless nights and endless feedings. But trust me, you’ll want to remember them, even if you don’t think you will in the moment. A newborn photoshoot captures these moments so you can revisit them whenever you need a reminder of just how precious your little one is.

The PERFECT gift for Grandparents – need I say more?! I’ve never met a Grandparent who hasn’t absolutely gushed over photos of their Grandchildren.. but a set of beautifully captured newborn photos is sure to bring tears of joy and earn you the title of ‘favorite child.’

A newborn photoshoot is a celebration of the love that created this new life. It’s about capturing the bond between you and your baby, the joy of becoming a parent, and the overwhelming love that fills your heart.

So there you have it – some of the many reasons why a newborn photoshoot at Lucy Rose Studios is an experience you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re in York or the surrounding areas, I’m here to help you make sure you text me in a few months time saying you wish you had..
