Worksop Newborn Photographer

A very warm welcome to my newborn photography page and huge congratulations on your pregnancy or indeed the safe arrival of your baby! If this is your first baby, you’ll be so shocked at how fast your baby will grow and change once born…if this is your 2nd, 3rd or even 4th child…you’ll already know that your baby is only really a newborn for such a fleeting time…and so it’s super important to capture and preserve those moments forever before they are quickly gone! 

As an award winning newborn photographer to many families now bringing back their 2nd or 3rd babies to me at my Worksop studio, I can tell you that newborn baby photography is so much more than simply taking pictures. It’s the creation of future precious memories that your family will treasure so, so much as the years pass by and for years to come.

“You will only know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory!”
AMAZING
“Me and my husband decided to book a photo shoot so we could look back on our baby girls first few days, and after looking online at local newborn photography, Becky’s work looked perfect for us!! I have to say that it’s one of the best things we’ve ever done! Becky was so accommodating and from the second we stepped into her studio it felt like home! She was amazing with Annabelle and we felt completely at ease! The prints were all amazing and customer service was faultless from booking to print collection! We will defo be returning and would 100% recommend to everyone! ” Amy

THE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE AT PETITE PORTRAITS WORKSOP

Want to know more about how the whole experience works? Click below to expand the info, or scroll down to the pricing.

When you decide you might like to book Petite Portraits for your newborn photoshoot, the first thing you’ll need to do is book a complimentary, really informal and relaxed video call with me…Becky. Your video call is completely free and you are under no obligation to book in for a session if you decide not to!  Your call is normally held one evening so everyone can relax and enjoy chatting about what you might like to include in your baby’s session, to talk through what happens at the session and to look through the colour options you might like and examples of images that can be created especially for your family. You’ll also be able to ask me anything….including requesting any special images you’d like that creating and you can even book in right there and then if you decide I’m the photographer for you! So why do I offer this instead of just emailing?  The advantage of this call is that even before you book in, you get the chance to meet your photographer… so that on the day you can feel really at ease with me as i work with your precious new baby and also reassured that I know exactly what you want from your session. It’s so much nicer and so much more personal than sending lots of emails back and forth! I want you to enjoy your session experience as much as possible and that means beginning everything as we mean to go on. 

 

Reserving your due date in my studio diary is really easy…at the end of your video call you can book in there and then if you decide I’m the photographer for you. Or if you prefer to think on it and book in a few days later that’s also fine.

All that’s required is a non refundable booking fee of just £99 which can be paid via all major cards over your phone or via an emailed invoice if you prefer. Your booking fee covers your Welcome Pack, your photographer’s time on the session day (on average 4+ hours), creative styling during the session, refreshments, use of all baby’s outfits and props and your return in-studio viewing and ordering appointment  to see your gorgeous final images for the first time, therefore it is not deductible off your chosen collection. 

Don’t worry about trying to guess what day your baby will be born…you don’t need to even give it a 2nd thought at this stage because when you book in with Petite Portraits, as I will reserve you 2 weeks either side of your due date so that I am available for you whenever your baby decides to arrive.

Once booked in, you’ll receive your Welcome Pack through the post, a few weeks before your due date, which includes a gorgeous Session Prep Guide with useful checklists to help you prepare for your session! There might even be a few nice surprises in your pack too! 

Your newborn session with Petite Portraits in Worksop, on the Sheffield/ Nottinghamshire border will be relaxed and informal…you may even find that you fall asleep but don’t worry your photographer will gently wake you if baby needs you! The studio is warm and comfortable, with everything you both need to make you feel welcome. The kettle is on and the biscuit tin is always full and there’s also free wifi to keep you entertained as I work with your baby. This is a day for you both to relax and rest.

Your baby is the boss and we will take as many breaks for feeds and cuddles as they need so that they feel content and relaxed too. All their outfits and props will be provided so that all you need to do is turn up with their usual baby bag and milk supply and leave the rest to me! I want to provide you with the highest level of client care throughout your time with me and really want you to look at your photos and remember that you loved the process as much as the finished result.

You’ll also receive your Welcome Pack through the post, a few weeks before your due date, which includes a gorgeous session prep guide with useful checklists to help you prepare for your session!

A few weeks after your newborn session, you’ll return to the Worksop studio to visit your photographer for your viewing and ordering appointment and to watch your beautiful personalised reveal video for the very first time! Don’t worry, I have a box of tissues at the ready for those happy tears! You’ll be amazed at how much your baby as already grown and changed already! All of my clients enjoy their viewing and ordering appointment… they’re really relaxed and it’s so nice to see you again and find out how you’ve all been doing.

At this stage, you’ll then decide which of our amazing collections you’d like to take home. Most families already have a good idea about what they’d like because they get the chance to look at all the beautiful items available during the actual newborn photoshoot, as they are all displayed for you to look through at your leisure.

Want to treat yourselves, but need to stay on budget…no worries, I offer all my clients easy payment plans with zero interest and no credit checks required. That doesn’t mean you need a mortgage to afford me though…my collections start at a very friendly £299.

Seen something in the studio that you love but its not included in your chosen collection? No problem, you can add anything you like to your order.

Need help to choose suitable wall art for your home! I can help you! I’m so used to designing wall art collections and knowing what suits different homes…just bring along a few phone snaps of the room and wall measurements and we’ll look at different options together to see which one takes your fancy! If you want time to think about which you’d prefer, that’s fine…and if you have a wall art credit you have 3 months from the date of your viewing to decide what to spend it on…so there’s no rush!

BOOKING YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER IN WORKSOP

Ideally, your newborn photographer will photograph your baby in our Worksop studio during the first three to four weeks of your baby’s life, to provide them with the chance to capture those adorable sleepy, snuggled up images that are so unique to young babies. As newborn sessions with our photographer are so popular with parents, the Worksop studio diary does fill up fast, so to avoid disappointment, please book in advance around the time of your 20 week scan. But if you have only just found out about newborn photography and your baby is already over four weeks old…don’t worry! As an experienced newborn photographer Becky has captured newborn images with babies upto approx 7.5 weeks old…there is sometimes space available for last minute bookings at the Worksop based studio…so its always worth asking…don’t miss the chance to get this precious time immortalised!

YOUR QUESTIONS

Anytime after your 20 week scan is the ideal time to book your newborn session. However be aware that I can only accept a maximum of 6 newborn sessions a month just to make sure that if all the babies arrive at once i can still accommodate everyone! …therefore the sooner you reserve your due date the better as those spaces fill up really fast! If you have just given birth and you don’t have a session booked…you can always ask if i have space…sometimes if all the babies arrive early or are overdue i can accommodate an extra session and I’d love to help you capture this amazing milestone. 

The studio is located on Ryton Street, Worksop. It’s super easy to travel to with it being straight off the A57 and has easy parking. We regularly entertain clients from nearby Mansfield, Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster. 

Reserving your newborn’s due date is just £99. When you reserve your due date, I reserve two weeks either side of that date to ensure my availability for you whenever your baby decides to arrive…so please don’t worry if you go overdue or deliver baby early than planned as i’ll be there for you! 

Your booking fee covers your Welcome Pack, your photographer’s time on the session day (on average 4+ hours), creative styling during the session, refreshments, use of all baby’s outfits and props and your return in-studio viewing and ordering appointment  to see your gorgeous final images for the first time, therefore it is not deductible off your chosen collection. 

Yes of course. As standard parents and siblings are always included in every newborn session…after all you are a family and this is a family celebration! Pets can attend by prior arrangement subject to some important safety and hygiene restrictions,  please do let me know when booking in if you wish to bring your pet so that we can chat through these together. I’ve entertained bunny rabbits and many doggies during newborn sessions to date….all of whom were great posers on the day! If you have a special request to involve anyone else, just ask when we have our consultation. 

Not a lot! Mainly yourselves…and your baby bag but don’t worry once you’ve booked in I send you a Welcome Pack which has a Session Prep Guide inside full of information about what to bring with you and how the session runs. And if you forget anything, I’m generally prepared and have most things to hand to make sure your day is stress free once you arrive, so if you are travelling any distance to my Worksop studio and you do forget something too late on to turn back, try not to worry!  

On average a session takes  approx 4 hours but it depends entirely on your baby, their feeding schedule and how many people you are bringing with you to be photographed. Some babies feed once and then never ever wake up for the rest of the time they are at the studio and so their session ends sooner…but it’s more usual to expect your baby to need a couple of feeds, potentially to have a period of awakeness at some point during the session or maybe a bit of wind that we have to clear first before they are to be ready to be photographed again and so mainly that time is spent making your baby happy and content ready for photos to then be taken.  I always let your baby take the lead and work with them to keep them happy, comfortable and sleepy enough for those beautiful newborn photos we all love to be made possible. But don’t worry about being bored whilst you wait…I have free wifi, charging points for laptops and pads, a fab coffee machine and lots of biscuits for you to treat yourselves to as you snuggle up on my comfy parent’s sofa and relax. 

New mums are often concerned about how they will look in photographs taken so soon after birth. Let me put your mind at ease… with a bit of good posing, great lighting and a touch of professional editing, you will have nothing to worry about. Have the photos taken with your baby as a memory of this time, even if you are feeling a bit anxious, because I promise you in years to come…you won’t regret having them taken. They are such a precious memory of such fleeting time and your baby will only actually fit snuggled up in your arms for a little while…don’t let the moment pass you by. What’s worse…having them taken and not liking them (in which case you are not committed to buying them) or never having any taken and then regretting it knowing your baby is now much bigger and won’t snuggle in your arms like that anymore? Hand on heart…have them taken…you never know you might just love them! 

Editing is a very important part of how your finished photographs will look. After your session, all your images are hand edited to a high professional standard and this cannot be rushed, so you should expect to receive a viewing invite to return to the Worksop studio within approx 4-6 weeks to see your newborn photographs. 

Don’t worry, I have your back. When you reserve your due date with Petite Portraits, I reserve not only your due date but the two weeks either side of it too! That means that whenever your baby decides to arrive, I am on hand for your newborn session at my Worksop studio at exactly the right time. 

Yes most definitely. Every one of my clients is given a form to sign at their session called a Model Release. This form allows you to select if you wish to keep your images private or alternatively if you are happy to, you can allow the studio the honour of adding them to the selection used to display on our webpages or social media. The choice is always yours. 

Yes of course. As well as our pre-set collections we offer an A La Carte Menu of individual items you can add to your collection to customise it as you wish. You can add as much or as little as you wish, the choice is yours. 

No I never charge you more, but as it really is twice the work settling two babies or more, I do often hire an extra safety and posing trained newborn assistant to help me during these sessions so that you and your partner can relax and enjoy the experience. Therefore if you are expecting multiples you will need to book in advance as soon as possible before your due date so that I can secure a suitable assistant for your session if required. 

Wall art prices start from just £149 and we have something to suit everyone in terms of budget and taste. We only use the highest quality professional wall art specialists to produce your gorgeous wall art so that you can be assured of top quality, long lasting heirloom pieces that will look stunning on the walls of your home for years to come. 

Want a big size but only have a small car…don’t let that hold you back! Just ask for home delivery … I can arrange for your gorgeous newborn photography wall art to come straight to you at home free of charge instead of you having to collect it from Worksop! 

Very simply. Once you decide what you want to order, you pay 40% of the order total at the ordering session as a deposit. This can be paid by card or cash or bank transfer, whichever you prefer. The remaining balance is then divided by the number of instalments you want to pay over. 

When you get home, you will receive an email showing your order details along with a payment button…keep this in your inbox to use whenever you wish to make a payment. 

The payment button is a secure payment link using well know payment provider Stripe, when you wish to pay a bit off your balance, just click the pay button, enter the amount you wish to pay and then your card details. 

You can pay every week, every month and in as many smaller bits as you wish to make your life easier…provided that every month you meet the minimum agreed amount in total. 

If you need to miss one payment and carry it over until the next month you are welcome to do so on one occasion. 

Once your balance is fully paid, the payment system notifies the studio automatically and you will receive confirmation that you have completed all your payments.
