Newborn Portrait Photography Portfolio

Remember they are only this little for a little while…

Newborn photo sessions are best during the first two weeks of life, preferably days 5-10. In these first few days, baby is the smallest they will ever be, still has got the newborn curl, sleep constantly and does not mind too much when they are being posed in various ways. In order to capture those adorable sleeping baby portraits, the younger the newborn baby is the better.

It is advisable to book your photo shoot as early as possible after your 20 week scan, so please do not hesitate to contact me to make an inquiry, check availability and to book your tentative date by calling 07834 774605 or emailing me liz@elizabethg.co.uk

Newborn Photography sessions are held in my home studio in Chipperfield, Hertfordshire. The studio is well equipped with professional backdrops, high end studio lighting, a variety of props and beautiful blankets.

Please set aside up to 3 hours for your newborn photography session, as to allow time for feeding, nappy changes and lots of cuddling too.  I advise all my newborn parents to wear plenty of layers.  The baby needs to be kept toasty in order to capture those dreamy shots, so the room will be very warm!  Also, if possible, please try to keep the baby’s nappy loosely fastened in the hour prior to your session, so when we do the “naked” shots, there are no marks on the baby’s skin.  Its’ a good idea to give the baby a big feed just before your session, so baby has a fully tummy and is kept content (and likely to stay asleep during the session).

You may also like to have some photographs taken with your newborn baby. Please advise me prior, as the additional setting will be required. I do encourage you to go for the ‘skin to skin’ type of portraits as they can make for some of the most precious images of a child and a parent that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Following your session, you would probably like to show off your photographs at their very best. I offer a variety of unique, custom made and handcrafted products which would certainly do them justice.   You may also be considering gifting a present to a new Mom and Dad with a unique newborn photography session or even an amazing baby shower present?  In these instances, a Gift Voucher is a brilliant idea.

Model Photography Portfolio

For actors, musicians and dancers a good portrait is essential. When visiting our studio I will provide you with different sets of shots with at least four outfit changes. This should allow for a wide range of different looks to choose your images from. Beforehand I discuss the look and style you are aiming for in order to capture the perfect photograph for your requirements. I am also available for Corporate Headshot bookings.

Family Portraits Portfolio

Portrait photography is about having fun and capturing real moments of emotion rather than staged poses. It’s important to take the time to capture your family in a relaxed and informal way to truly represent who you are.

Pet Photography Portfolio

As a nation of animal lovers, pet owners know the value of beautiful high quality professional portraits of the pets they love. I provide professional animal portraits of dogs, cats and all pets and animals to stay with you forever, as a permanent reminder of your pet as he or she is today. With my reputation for top quality photographers, I know you will love your pet portraits as much as I enjoy taking them.

Understanding that our pets are as individual as we are, I work with you to create the right kind of portrait to fit your pet’s unique personality. Dog photography, puppy portraits, cats, kittens, or any other pet or animal… I capture the right photos for you.

How general portrait sessions work

I like to work in an informal and unobtrusive way. I can shoot in your home or garden or a location or your choice.

Overall, my aim is to photograph your family as naturally and as relaxed as possible to capture real personality and expressions.

After the shoot

I will invite you back to the studio within two-three weeks after your shoot for your ordering appointment. For this session, I will have already selected the best images, colour-corrected, cropped and finished them ready to present to you via a slideshow to music.

When you have chosen the selection of images that you wish to purchase, I can offer you a huge range of fine art products such as: canvases, single, framed or multiple-image frames, beautiful leather-bound albums, desk frames, aluminium prints, art blocks and much more. Payment is taken at this appointment.
