Toby’s newborn session at Newborn Story Photography

It’s been nearly five years since we opened our studio in Sunderland and still, day after day we marvel at the beauty of our tiny models. Throughout these five years we won many awards, had training with the best of the best in the industry, have been listed as one of the Top 3 Photographers in Sunderland, and the best Newborn Photographer in Sunderland in 2017, and still every single time, we are humbled in the presence of new life, grateful for the privilege of being their first photographer.

Little Toby was only 6 days new when he visited the studio for his newborn session. It was an absolutely perfect moment, as the best time for a newborn session is between the 4th and 14th day of baby’s life!

This is because at this time, newborn babies are still caught in their magical womb like behaviour, happy to sleep for longer stretches allowing their miraculous newborn look to be captured undisturbed. And Toby was no different! He slept soundly and enjoyed posing, wrapping and changing as if there was nothing in the world that could disturb his sweet sleep.
 

 

Some of the poses you can see here require specialist knowledge and extra care to ensure safety of the baby. In some cases there is additional support required and a final photograph is actually a result of merging two or three photos together. So if you’re planning on having your baby’s photos done, make sure the photographer you chose can prove extensive training and knows all the safety rules for photographing newborn babies. Don’t feel shy to ask, it’s your baby’s safety that’s most important, and every professional newborn photographer will gladly share their training details with you.

It’s all about capturing beautiful moments, and preserving the memory of this special time in your family’s life. It should always be a relaxing and enjoyable experience!

Alba's newborn session

These Murton beauties, visited my Sunderland studio for Alba's newborn session when she was only 16 days old! Her big sister Marlowe was such an angel, snuggling to her tiny new sister whenever she could. It was a pleasure to watch and a pleasure to photograph :)

You're in good hands sweetie!

Penny's newborn session

Sweet little Penny Rita, visited my Sunderland studio at just 11 days old and traveled from Jarrow to meet me! I loved creating floral set ups for her session to add that little bit of Spring in her portraits. But most of all, I loved posing this little beauty! She was so good at her newborn session!

Little Freddie from Peterlee

It was so great to have this lovely family from Peterlee in my studio for Freddie's newborn session. His big brother was amazing with him, and Freddie posed so well I could photograph him forever! We always recommend to do a newborn session within the first 14 days of baby's life, so it was simply perfect for Freddie to have his newborn shoot at 12 days old :)

Newborn session at Newborn Story Photography Sunderland

Arrival of a new little person is always a very special time for every family. Suddenly, the whole world changes to greet this beautiful new soul, and those first days after baby's arrival are just as incredibly precious as they are fleeting. Capturing an essence of those moments, is a great task!

 

 

Our newborn sessions are done in the comfort ouf our spacious, fully equipped studio located in the heart of the Sunderland city centre. There's a large variety of props, outifts, wraps, blankets and backdrops to choose from, but we can also arrange specific set ups individually perpared for your session to add that unique and personal touch to your gallery.

A bit more about your newborn session

Each newborn session takes about 2-3 hours and includes parents, sibling and pet portraits at no additional charge. Your gallery will be professionally retouched and presented at your ordering appointment roughly 3 weeks after your session.

While capturing beautiful portraits is our goal, assuring safety and comfort of the little model is always our top priority! The area of the studio where your baby will be photographed, is heated up to 26C° and your little one will be safe and sound in the hands of our fully trained, experienced and award winning photographer, Nina.

 

 

There are refreshments available at the studio and two comfy chairs for you to relax in, while Nina will settle, pose and photograph your little bundle of joy. And while you're there, you can look through our selection of albums, canvas wraps and wooden art blocks and start planning on your product investment, while having a cup of coffee or tea.

Twins at Newborn Story Photography Studio!

Anyone who knows me at least a little bit knows I adore photographing twins! Yes, it can be hard work at times and settling two little people can be a challenge, no question about that! However, when I get to finally pose those two sweet models my camera jumps from excitement in my hands, because I get to witness AND photograph pure joy! Parents, at the end of their first year of life you will sure deserve a medal  ..or two! ..and a bottle of really good wine! But you will also get so much back in return, only other parents of twins will ever understand your journey!

Lillie Harper's newborn session at Newborn Story Photography

It was one of my most favourite sessions to date! She was just a perfect model allowing me to change poses and set ups as I pleased. She also rocked all my colour and prop selections making my work really hard when it came to narrow down images for her gallery.
Hope to see you again for your First Birthday Cake Smash session once you're One! :)

Newborn & sibling portraits

These two little guys came to visit my Sunderland studio from High Barnes, and were so great at their photo session. Olly was only 2 weeks when he came for a newborn session and he was such a pleasure to photograph! As well as his amazing parents and his older brother Matthew who was so amazing with Olly. This is such a special family moment worth capturing, the bond between this family is simply beautiful. And this is one of the reasons we never charge extra for family and sibling portraits. It's just too important not to capture these special moments for the whole family for years to come!
