Newborn photo shoot in Essex

We were so excited to come back to Paul’s to have our newborn shoot as Paul & Hannah photographed our wedding last year. We had Leah who led the shoot and she was incredible. She was so gentle, calm and an absolute natural with our baby girl - who was 3 weeks old at the time. We are so in love with our photos - they are so natural and timeless. We will treasure them forever.

We recommend booking your newborn photography session with us for around 7 days after your due date. Rest assured that if your baby arrives early or late, we’ll prioritize your session and adjust accordingly.

We love taking photos of our newborns with their families, including grandparents and even pets! It’s a great way to capture special moments and bond over new beginnings.

We want you to have complete peace of mind when scheduling your session. Rest assured that once booked, we will prioritize your appointment and if your baby arrives early or late, we will be more than happy to accommodate the change and reschedule at your convenience.

If you’re looking to capture some beautiful and natural portraits of your bundle of joy, the sweet spot is typically between five and 14 days old. During this early period, babies tend to be super sleepy and calm, making it easy to get those adorable posed shots. But don’t worry if your little one is already a few weeks old – we can still capture some great images up to 4-6 weeks after their arrival.

  1. Telephone consultation prior to your newborn shoot so we can plan and create a bespoke experience for you.
  2. Three hour photoshoot with our award winning newborn photographer. 
  3. Unlimited premium hot drinks with biscuits 🙂

We had a wonderful experience for our daughters newborn shoot. Leah is an amazing photographer and is magic with babies. Our little one was so relaxed throughout the whole process and we got some beautiful photos. We had our photo viewing with Paul who was very patient whilst we tried to figure out which photos we were going to go for. Very welcoming and professional. 100% recommend and can’t wait to go back for our cherub shoot!

Used Paul's for my first newborn photshoot. The studio is lovely and all the staff made us feel so welcome. Leah and Gemma took the photos and were so patient with my crying newborn and had such great techniques and were very professional. Thanks to everyone I now have some amazing photos and memories to last a lifetime.
