Creating heartfelt images of your new arrival
IF YOU ARE EXPECTING A NEWBORN BABY
We understand that it's challenging to travel in the first weeks after baby arrives. That's why our Newborn Session is offered in your home. We'll bring along lighting, space heater, blankets, outfits and accessories to set up a "small studio" in your bedroom or living room. We can use a bare wall as a seamless backdrop for intimate family portraits, and incorporate meaningful settings within your home for added variety.
This type of session is perfect for the family as it provides all of the comfort of home. All studio items are sterilized and sanitized between use.
About us & our style
We are a husband and wife newborn photography team based in Dublin City West. Our style is soft, pure and relaxed. We love to use neutral color palattes, flattering tones and organic texture to capture these precious memories as gorgeous portraits.
All sesions are held at your home. Please reserve your spot at least fours weeks in advance.

We had a wonderful time during our shoot for baby Cruz. With three kids it was such a relief to have Victoria and Damian come to our home. They made the whole process a breeze and the end result was absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much for these gorgeous photos!
Asked about a booking on Thursday after been let down by someone and they where out on the Friday, they went above and beyond throughout the whole shoot, would definitely be using them again!
3 Benefits of taking in-home newborn photography session
When doing in-home photo sessions you don't have to worry about forgetting something at home, as everything you need is right next to you. Having access to your wardrobe at home just make it all so much easier!
In home newborn photo sessions are safe, fun and easy to prepare for. You don't have to leave the comfort of your home and you don't have to pack huge amounts of things in order to cover all the needs of your little newborn. you just have to relax and enjoy the moment.
Children are much more comfortable, relaxed and far less stressed at home. With this being such an intense time in your young child's life (hey - this is a lot of change for them!) having session in the comforts of your child's home will provide a much easier and successful portrait experience. No need to have your child be stuck in a small studio for 2-3 hours. They have plenty of snacks at their disposable, and once we get those family and siblings shots, they can go on their merry way and continue on having fun!

how to prepare for your newborn photo session
Newborn photography can be incredibly challenging, but it's so amazing to be a part of a baby's life in those first few days. There;s some prep and planning involved to make the shoot more successful so we have compiled a list to help us get the most out of your newborn session.
Let's pencil you in: We know that a baby's birthday can be unpredictable. It's best to contact us during your second trimester, so we can can pencil you in. It's great if you can add us the "new baby is born" list of people to notify too! That way we will have a better idea of when you'll need to book your session.
Schedule your session ahead of time: Newborn sessions are most successful when done within the first 10 days of birth. Most of poses will be done while baby is sleeping and we will be posing them in those cute curled-up newborn positions. They must be sleepy enough for us to handle them. After the first 10 days of life they become a bit more alert and discover the joy of stretching. They're less likely to be sleeping deeply enough to be scrunched into those cute posing positions.
Loosen the diaper: About 30 minutes before your session please loosen baby's diaper and any clothing with waist bands that could leave those little imprint marks on their skin. Loosening them before gives them time to disappear.
The Nitty Gritty: Poop happens! Please don't be upset or feel bad if baby decides it's time to go potty when he/she is in the buff and being photographed! This is totally natural and it's just part of our job. We launder all blankets with non-scented baby detergent between sessions. It would definately be helpful if you had a stack o old towels, extra wipes and blankets available for when things get messy though.
Hungry? A well fed baby is a happy baby. Please feed and burp baby right before our session. This will ensure a nice sleepy "milk drunk" babe. We are also happy to take as many breaks as baby needs if he or she gets hungry during a shoot it's no problem. It's tough work being a model!
Warm it up: Crank the heat. It's super important that your naked babe feel all toasty when we are doing naked poses. If the're cold they're likely going to be awake and/or upset.
Volume: Manage noise. Please do whatever you can to keep the noise down during our session. If you have noisy pets please make plans to keep them quiet during the shoot. If you have other children it can be helpful to have a sitter or family member plan to take them out for a few hours.
Clutter: De-clutter the areas where you'd like the shoot to take place. We will also need some nice natural light so please make sure there are some nice windows nearby. Open all the curtains before our arrival. We can also bring some lighting with us in case but we prefer natural light when possible.
Props: We have a nice collection of outfits blankets, headbands etc.. that we can bring. Let us know if you have a prop you'd like to incorporate into the shoot and have those items ready when we arrive. We can fo through them together and choose what will work best!
Timing: It can typically take 2-3 hours (depends on the package) for our newborn shoot. Please make plans to spend at least this much time with us. The baby is in charge so we like to give enough time for feeding, cuddles, and calming baby. We want this experience to be as stress free as possible.
What should we wear? If you plan on being in some of the shots with baby we suggest wearing neutral well fitting clothing that you're comfy in. The same goes for siblings. Avoid bold prints and graphic tees. Mom and Dad's hands will likely be in a lot of the shots so please make sure nails are clean and manicured.
Dry skin for baby: Many newborn will have flaky skin during those first few weeks of life. We suggest bringing some lotion with you to put on baby right before the shoot.
We welcome any questions you have. If you don't find any the answer in our guide - just ask!
