I recommend booking a newborn session for 2 weeks after your due date. The session takes place in the comfort of your own home. The reason I do this is so that you have everything you need, and your baby tends to be more relaxed in their home environment. I have three children myself so please do not feel under pressure to tidy/clean, I am there to capture the memory of you and your new addition, not to judge your house.

As well as family shots I also try to obtain some close up work to capture details and the size of their hands and feet. 

I also adopt a very natural and relaxed  approach to newborn photography and as a result I will not manipulate or pose the baby.
