Soulful Newborn and Baby Sessions - Capturing the tender, fleeting days of your baby's life.


Newborn sessions are baby-led with a combination of lifestyle and naturally posed shots, in my cosy Essex based home studio, where you can relax with everything you need, or in your own home.

Free of awkwardness, forced smiles and full of emotion. These relaxed sessions give you space to unfold and connect with your baby in front of the camera by encouraging authentic interactions to happen in the moment.

Baby Milestone Session-£100


Whilst every stage is worth celebrating, there is nothing more significant than your baby's first birthday. Turning one is such a huge milestone for them and represents such a special moment in your parenting journey.


We do these birthday sessions a bit differently here at millieandbeau, mainly because I want them to be such a beautiful memory that you can put on your wall without all the usual first birthday cheese and fluff. Simple, a little bit boho and filled with soul they are more intimate and allow me to capture your baby with all their personality and get beautiful pictures of you all together, or just mama and baby.


  • Up to 1 hour session on location or in my studio
  • Pre-session prep and styling advice.
  • Use of client wardrobe for mama and baby outfits.
  • Five 5x7 prints selected from your gallery.
  • 10 Digitals chosen by yourself from your full private online gallery.


Cake? I can bring out a simple 'naked' cake for the baby to eat/smash to end the session with some fun images.


The Experience


I put my heart and soul into ensuring your experience is one that leaves you feeling looked after and understood so that you end up with incredible pictures to give you a lifetime of memories.

Location


Newborn sessions can take place either at your home, in my studio or on location outside.

There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to deciding where to have your session and it's important to consider what style of images you want and where feels most authentic to you.


The studio is a space that is warmed up and ready to welcome you, set up in a neutral, lifestyle aesthetic, all you have to do is turn up.


There is just something beautifully authentic about photographing newborns/ families in your own home, with older siblings, generally feeling more

comfortable to be themselves and mamas loving on their babies in their own cosy cocooned hub.


On location, the focus is on showing your bond, where you can feed or nurture your babe in the wild surrounded by long grass or sand dunes.


Client Wardrobe


Use of baby clothes and wraps, along with dresses for mum from my client wardrobe.

FAQ

When should I schedule my Newborn session?

Newborns sessions typically take place before baby is around 10 days old. After this they are generally more awake and fussy. However, the beauty of a lifestyle session is they can really take place when baby is older and still be a wonderful experience. But please remember any older and the super sleepy shots may not be possible.

If you can book as early as you know your date this means I can jot your date in my diary and keep the space free. Obviously baby will come when they decide and we can reschedule as needed, but a rough date to work from is always helpful.

WHAT SHOULD I / WE WEAR

Styling adds so much to an image, and I want to make the process of selecting what to wear for your pictures as easy as possible.

You have full use during the sessions of my client closet for yourself and your newborn/baby. I have a small variety of dresses, wraps, swaddles and nappy covers to compliment you both and can offer styling advice if you would like help.

All items can be picked out before the session and I will bring them steamed and ready to wear.

Styling advice is also included in the session guide once you are booked with me. However, natural and earthy tones work the best, free from heavy patterns and logos for timeless images.

Can I print my own images?

Quality of craft is so incredibly important to me, I want the images I take to look timeless and outstanding both aesthetically and as a printed product. All printing rights are included in your package purchase, but that being said please consider that not all print labs are created equal. The print labs I choose have been carefully selected for their quality and museum standard ink longevity.

Your prints should outlive you and not look a days different from when they were first printed. You can purchase prints directly through me from your gallery. I can also offer advice on where best to get your own prints fulfilled and what sizes will best fit your display needs

Kind words

We booked a photoshoot with Emily to make sure we had something other than phone snaps to remember the newborn time period of our son. Emily went to great lengths to make us and our baby comfortable, we had a great time and are over the moon with the finished photographs! Cannot recommend her enough for maternity or newborn shoots.
