Pregnancy, Newborn and Infants

If you're here as an expectant mum, proud father-to-be, or new mummy or daddy, CONGRATULATIONS!

You are embarking on one of the most amazing experiences in life; be it your first child, or a little brother or sister. It may seem like these times go slowly, but believe us, they shoot by in the blink of an eye!

Some of our most special photo shoots have been capturing the glow of pregnancy, the pride of an expectant Dad, the pure love for a new little one from parents and siblings, and the absolute tranquil beauty of new born babies. We always feel so lucky to be given the opportunity to share and capture these special, timeless moments with you.

Pregnancy and Newborn photo packages

We have four different standard packages available which make for fantastic gifts for expectant parents, but can also provide bespoke packages tailored to your needs.

If you would like to have a chat about pregnancy and new baby shoots, please contact us and we will be delighted to answer any questions, discuss styles, options, locations, prices and booking an appointment.

General

Pregnancy photo shoots should be booked for between eight and a half to nine months into pregnancy.

We will arrange a convenient time with you about a week or two before the session for a pre-shoot video call (Zoom or WhatsApp if possible), or phone call. The aim is for us to get to know each other a little, find out what you’re expecting and answer any questions you may have.

Studio shoots - For pregnancy shoots, our studio is generally kept warmer than usual (accompanying adults and children might find it a little on the warm side!). We can play gentle music of your choosing in the background if you like. Water, juice, tea, coffee and biscuits are on hand for adults and children.

Home shoots – We will bring our photographic equipment (cameras, lenses, tripods, lights, flashes, reflectors, white and black backgrounds and stands), a plug in heater, beanbags, throws, rugs and the accessories and props detailed in the relevant section below. Ideally we need a clear area of approx. 4 meters by 3 meters to set up in, but things can be made to work in smaller spaces.

Shoot duration

We generally find about an hour is ample to get a set of lovely pictures of you and your bump. Things tend to take longer the more people involved and the more outfits you want to try on, so if we need a little more time then that’s fine. Sometimes we’ll agree that we’ve got all that we need in less time, in which case we’ll finish sooner.

Outfits and props

If you would like, we can discuss with you what sorts of outfits work well for late pregnancy shoots before you come. We have a selection of gauzes, scarves and throws.  

Preferred styles

If you’ve a particular photo style you like, or there are photos that you’ve seen on our website or elsewhere that you’d like to use as inspiration, send us examples through and we’ll see what we can do.

Photos sessions with siblings

If you are intending to bring siblings along for the fun, we can comfortably work with up to three in our studio.

We respectfully ask you to help children understand the need for a calm room and to follow our direction during the shoot. If the shoot needs to stop due to excessive interruption or behaviour not acceptable in a photo studio, we will unfortunately need to ask you to reschedule as a parent-only shoot.

What if it’s just not working

There’s no pressure on the day, we’re relaxed and things can take their time; we’ll keep trying to get the shots you want. If you’re not comfortable, or things really aren’t working out, we will discuss stopping the shoot and trying again another day. No extra charge is made for a postponement.

If you’re trying for a second time and things still aren’t going to plan, we can discuss rescheduling again for a £15 admin fee.

If you decide you’d rather not try again, we can either refund you half the cost of the shoot, or you can choose to have the full cost kept as credit by BrightRise photography to use against another type of portrait shoot at a later date.

New born photo shoot – £100
A photo shoot of mum and new baby, between 2 and 4 weeks after the birth. Partners and up to three siblings welcome to join the fun. These can take place either in the studio, or at your house.

Shoot duration
New born shoots tend to take about 1 and a half hours depending on your and baby’s needs, and the number of people present. Sometimes things take a little longer, sometimes we’re done a little quicker.

Price includes one picture of your choosing delivered as a 12″ x 8″ print.

New born photo shoot - £100

A photo shoot of mum and new baby, between 2 and 4 weeks after the birth. Partners and up to three siblings welcome to join the fun. These can take place either in the studio, or at your house.

Shoot duration
New born shoots tend to take about 1 and a half hours depending on your and baby’s needs, and the number of people present. Sometimes things take a little longer, sometimes we’re done a little quicker.

Price includes one picture of your choosing delivered as a 12″ x 8″ print.

General

Newborn photo shoots should be booked for between two and four weeks after birth, the closer to two weeks’ old, the better. To get really cute, relaxed, natural pictures, babies of around two weeks are the most sleepy and poseable.

We will arrange a convenient time with you about a week or two before the session for a pre-shoot video call (Zoom or WhatsApp if possible), or phone call. The aim is for us to get to know each other a little, find out what you’re expecting and answer any questions you may have.

Studio shoots - For newborn and baby shoots, our studio is kept much warmer than usual (adults might find it a little on the hot side). We will have gentle background sounds playing – either white noise or water gurgling, but these can be changed for gentle music of your choosing or silence. Water, juice, tea, coffee and biscuits are on hand for adults and siblings; you’ll need to bring along what baby needs.

Home shoots – We will bring our photographic equipment (cameras, lenses, tripods, lights, flashes, reflectors), our portable specialist baby photography sets, a plug in heater, beanbags, throws, rugs and the accessories and props detailed in the relevant section below. Ideally we need a clear area of approx. 4 meters by 3 meters to set up in, but things can be made to work in smaller spaces.

Shoot duration

We generally find about one and a half hours is ample to get a set of lovely pictures of your little one. We will almost certainly need to pause for feeds, snuggles and nappy changes and that’s part of the fun. If we need a little longer on the day, that’s fine. Equally, if your baby is a superstar and we’ve got everything planned in less time, we may decide to finish earlier.

Accessories and props

We have a range of cute hats, headbands, blankets, soft toys and other props at our studio, but if you want to bring things with you then be our guest. We think that babies’ bodies are the most beautiful things, so generally we try to photograph with as little clothing as possible, but if you’d rather have your little bundle dressed then please bring along outfits.

Posing and moving your baby

We have specialist sets built for baby photography which allow us to arrange your little one in comfort and safety. If you’re happy for us to do so, we’re happy to gently adjust your baby’s position (arms, legs, head) but should we need to change pose entirely, or if you need to comfort, feed or change them, we will ask you to do the lifting.

Photos sessions with siblings

If you are intending to bring siblings along for the fun, we can comfortably work with up to three in our studio. In our experience, shots with brothers and sisters tend to be the most challenging of the day and often baby will be less comfortable and relaxed. Because of this, we usually include siblings and partners at the end of the session. If possible, it is preferable that siblings and partners arrive about an hour after the shoot starts, but we understand this is not always possible. If they need to be present for the whole shoot, we respectfully ask you to help them understand the need for a relaxed and peaceful room. If the shoot needs to stop due to excessive interruption, noise or behaviour not acceptable in a photo studio, we will unfortunately need to ask you to reschedule as a parent and baby-only shoot.

For the 6 month old shoot, you can dress baby in anything although we would advise against heavily patterned outfits, and if you’re going to have parents and/or siblings taking part as well, pick outfits that are complimentary in colour, again with no strong patterns or big motifs. We can discuss your thoughts before the shoot if you’d like.

General

The monthly pregnancy shoots should be booked as close to one month apart as possible to capture mum’s progress as baby grows. Generally we prefer to use our studio for these shoots due to their shorter duration, but this can be discussed. We find the best results from these sessions are obtained by using the same location, outfits and poses at each shoot to really emphasise the changes during pregnancy.

We will arrange a convenient time with you about a week or two before the first session for a pre-shoot video call (Zoom or WhatsApp if possible), or phone call. The aim is for us to get to know each other a little, find out what you’re expecting and answer any questions you may have.

Ideally we need a clear area of approx. 4 meters by 3 meters to set up in, but things can be made to work in smaller spaces.

Shoot duration

We generally find about half an an hour is ample to get a set of lovely pictures of you and your growing bump. Things tend to take longer the more people involved and the more outfits you want to try on, so if we need a little more time then that’s fine. Sometimes we’ll agree that we’ve got all that we need in less time, in which case we’ll finish sooner.

Outfits and props

If you would like, we can discuss with you what sorts of outfits work well for late pregnancy shoots before you come. An outfit that can grow with you during your entire pregnancy, or can be made to move to accommodate your growing bump is ideal. We have a selection of gauzes, scarves and throws.  

Preferred styles

If you’ve a particular photo style you like, or there are photos that you’ve seen on our website or elsewhere that you’d like to use as inspiration, send us examples through and we’ll see what we can do.

What if it’s just not working

There’s no pressure on the day, we’re relaxed and things can take their time; we’ll keep trying to get the shots you want. If you’re not comfortable, or things really aren’t working out, we will discuss stopping the shoot and trying again another day. Due to the need to capture progress through your pregnancy at specific intervals, we will need to try again within 7 days of the original date. No extra charge is made for a postponement.

If you decide you’d rather not try again, we can either refund you half the cost of the remaining shoots, or you can choose to have the full cost kept as credit by BrightRise photography to use against another type of portrait shoot at a later date.
