WAKEFIELD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
PROVIDING NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN WAKEFIELD
Hello and welcome to my Newborn Baby Photographer page.
If you are here you must be looking for a Newborn Photographer, Wakefield, West Yorkshire. This is such an exciting time in your life, and I'm super excited that you are considering me to capture your precious memories. I know this can be such a stressful and daunting time for yourselves, and choosing the right newborn photographer in Wakefield is something that can add more anxiety to make sure they get the most beautiful photos of your little one.
Creating a new life is the most rewarding thing anyone can do, this is why I love to capture those moments in the most relaxed way.
Here is some information regarding my style of photography and what you can expect in your newborn session.
My preferred style of photography is timeless and natural, capturing your baby in their traditional positions, with gentle guidance from myself.
My home studio is easily accessible on the outskirts of Rotherham. It is only a few minutes from the M1 and A1 motor ways.
When you arrive at the studio we will have a little chat to ease any concerns and nerves. I want you to feel as comfortable and as relaxed as possible.
Your session will last anything from an hour up to around 3.5 hours, however the timings are not exact as we know how unpredictable babies can be. We will start with baby images first and then family images including the parents, baby and siblings who attend.
My sessions are all about the natural bond between you all and the authentic ness of a newborn, so there will only be gentle direction from myself.
WHEN TO BOOK A NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
Newborn Photography sessions take place within the first couple of weeks of your baby’s life! It is always best to have the session pre-booked before the baby is born, this will help to reserve your date and time.
I know this date can always change as it is based on your due date (and I know the little darlings never like to stick to this date), but by pre-booking this allows me to organise my diary and book a rescheduled date if needed.
As soon as the baby arrives and the parents are comfortable you should contact me either by phone or email to confirm the exact date and time of the photo-shoot!
I like to book my Newborn sessions normally between 6 to 20 days of your baby’s life, as this is the perfect time when the babies are the most sleepy and flexible allowing the baby to be more sleepy. However, the sessions can start from the moment you are ready, this can be within the first 24 hours, having a fresh 24 session.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SESSION?
The session can last up to 3.5 hours, however I do try to keep the time as little as possible so not to distress the baby. This includes nursing, cuddling, changing and putting the baby to sleep.
To ensure baby's comfort I advice to keep your home as warm as can be. Newborn photography can take a lot of patience and time.
I always make sure the baby is happy and safe and that families get the most beautiful images of their little treasures.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO THE SESSION?
I like to keep things as natural and neutral as possible.
For the little one I would recommend a white vest, this can be either short sleeved or long sleeved. I would bring a couple, just in case we have any little sicky moments.
For the grown ups I would advise to wear something neutral, maybe white/cream. Pale blue works well also, especially for the bottom half.
SHOULD WE BRING ANYTHING?
Trying to remember everything to take out with you once your little one arrives, can be a challenge, especially for first time parents.
Apart from your usual items that is carried in the baby bag, I would advise to bring extra milk if you are bottle feeding and a pacifier if your little one has taken to one. I do have some spare nappies in the studio just in case they are needed.
For yourself and siblings, a drink as it can get warm in the studio and snacks to bribe the sibling for those cuddly photos.
WHERE WILL THE NEWBORN SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Your newborn photography session will take place in the comfort of my own lovely home studio, on the outskirts of Barnsley and Rotherham, at Manvers, South Yorkshire.
It is within easy access from the M1 and A1 motorways.
DO YOU SUPPLY PRINTED PRODUCTS?
Yes, I offer a selection of fine art and normal printed products, from lose prints to albums.
You will receive a pdf document with the products and pricing in. There is also a selection in the studio for you to have a browse through during the session.
I always suggest purchasing some kind of printed product, such as prints, album or folio, as they can be a staple to your home, as well as giving you something tangible to show your family and friends and have on display.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
You will receive your link for your online viewing gallery is around 3-4 weeks, usually less after session.
You will be able to download your selected amount of digital images straight from the gallery.
I suggest doing this on a computer or laptop as mobile phones can decrease the quality of the images.
Lovely photos! Becky made us feel really relaxed and we got some beautiful photos of our little boy.
Upon booking the session fee (retainer fee) is required to secure your date in my diary.
Please note, your session fee (retainer fee) is non-refundable, but is transferable to another date if rearranged within 48 hours of your current booked session date.

Wakefield Newborn Photographer
During your session I ask all my clients if they can think of a piece of wall in their homes that looks empty and lonely, and would benefit with some professionally made wall art. Here at Becky Helen Photography, I offer a varitey of wall arts including:- wall spheres, frames and canvases. As well as some lovely print options that include a print box with mounted prints inside and a triple winged folio.
