Baby Photography Durham

Adorable collage of photographs of babies, family and newborn children. Some colour and some black and white

Newborn babies change so much in such a short space of time, so we find many parents find it really important to capture those moments.  All of our baby sessions take place on a Thursday or Friday currently.  The ideal window for your session is the first 7-14 days.  This usually ensures that your partner can also take part before returning from paternity leave.  But if for some reason you can not make it in that window we are one of the few studios in the region that will still do newborn sessions up to at least 6 weeks.  If your baby arrives early then we can also look after you, just give us a call and we will take care of it.

The one thing we are asked the most is how much does it cost?

Well this is actually one of the hardest questions to answer because everyone is individual.  We take a £50 booking fee for midweek sessions and we then have a very limited number of weekend slots available and we take a £100 booking fee for these sessions where available.  Booking fees are then refunded against anything you decide to purchase.  Most of our clients invest between £450 and £950 on their baby photography.  But there is no minimum spend.  We can also offer up to 12 months interest free payments

Your Newborn Experience


It is best to book your session within the first 14 days of your due date/arrival.  If you are already past 14 days please book ASAP or call us on 0191 3407273 to discuss.

For advanced bookings this becomes a flexible floating appointment which we can move to an appropriate slot depending on when baby decides to make an appearance.


Your photoshoot will take place at our Chester le Street studio.  We aim to finish the session within 2 hours however we always go at your little ones pace.  So sometimes it might go on a bit longer.

The studio is a safe, warm environment for your little one to curl up and sleep whilst we gently pose them.


Following your session you will be invited to come back to the studio within a week or so to look at your beautiful images that we have just created for you.

They will be projected onto our big screen for your pleasure from when you can pick any of our wonderful products or collections.
