This session is possibly the most precious one of all. Your brand new beautiful bundle of joy has just arrived and you cannot imagine how much you love this adorable little baby…you want to keep them tiny forever and remember those beautiful little features; their tiny toes, their gorgeous nose, their minute little finger nails…

When to book

Try to book it as soon as you have found out your pregnant, this way you don’t have to worry about it once baby has arrived.

However, if you have already had your baby please do get in touch and I will try and fit you in.


What date do I book?

I provisionally book you in for your due date and then when baby arrives you get in touch and we arrange the actual sesion date, which is normally within the first 14 days

Your session

Will be very relaxed

Can be in your home or my home studio

Can include siblings plus family set ups

Can take 3 hours due to it being baby led (if they need feeding/cuddles etc we take a break)


View the gallery

I like to mix it up when it comes to my newborn baby photo sessions, so that we can capture both natural images of your beautiful new baby plus some posed ones where they are wrapped in blankets etc.  Examples of the babies I have photographed are shown within the gallery. It is always useful to consider where your images are going to be displayed in your home as we can design the colour pallete of your images around your rooms.

Happy Clients

Before Christmas, Claire photographed our newborn baby, Esmé, along with photos of our three year old, Lottie, and my husband and myself. The pictures are beautiful, we are really happy with them. She took so much time to make sure she captured the perfect shots. She even managed to get some of Lottie with her new sister, even though Lottie was not playing ball that day. We would highly recommend Claire, she is really lovely and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Thanks again Claire!.”

Had several different photo sessions with Claire over the years! She has always been so patient, gentle and engaging with my children! We’ve always felt comfortable in her studio/Home! And more importantly I’ve always loved the pictures!

Would highly recommend Claire Wilders Photography. We visited her in February for a newborn photoshoot with my, at the time, week old baby. Claire was absolutely amazing and took great care of my daughter throughout the whole of our photoshoot. And as for the photos well that have come out beautifully, very professional and something that we will treasure forever! Definitely worth a visit! Thank you so much Claire!

Top tips ahead of your photoshoot

– If possible bring baby along to the shoot and feed them on arrival. This will help them settle on the shoot so we can get those lovely sleepy images

– Bring spare nappies

– Don’t forget that special item, if you wish to include it in your photos
