Newborn Baby

Welcome to Claire Wilders Photography.  I’m so pleased that you’d found my newborn photography page, especially if you live in the West Sussex area!

Without a doubt, this is the most precious session that I provide and the most honorable.  Why? Because you are allowing me to handle and photograph what is most beloved to you!  Your brand new gorgeous little baby.

Unsurprisingly, life has changed! First, of all, you’d now love 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep and can’t remember what it was like to have a full 8  hours! Secondly, time is flying by because your days are spent just staring at YOUR baby! Did you ever imagine you’d love them SO much or that they would be SO beautiful!?

By booking in a newborn photography session, you ensure that this memory is recorded forever.  During the session, I love to capture all of those tiny features plus your first memories as a family too. Although you may feel that you do not look your best, I promise that you will look back on these photos with great fondness. More importantly, your children will look at these photos with great fondness.

When to book your baby photo session

First of all, congratulations.

It is wonderful news that you are expecting a baby!  So, when is the best time to book your session? Ideally, as soon as possible, this way you can forget about it until the baby arrives.  

First, I book you in for your due date.  Once your baby arrives, we can confirm a suitable session date.  Normally this is within the first two weeks but can be later if you prefer.

Your baby has arrived

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

Actual sessions last for around 2hrs because they are completely baby-led. 

If your baby needs feedings, cuddles, changing, etc, we stop and take a break.  As a parent, I will look after your little one the same as I would my own.

At your new baby session

Photographing siblings and immediate family is included in your photo session.  If you wish to include grandparents please let me know and we can discuss the options.

In addition to photos of your baby wrapped, I  also capture some cute naked shots and their tiny little features.

Sometimes, parents don’t like to leave the home, so I can run the session in your own home.


As a newborn baby photographer, I love to create a memory for you to look back on.

During your session, I not only capture photos of your baby but I also like to include photos of you all as a family.

By including a mixture of posed and natural photos it ensures that you have a wide range of photos, that will look amazing on your walls at home. You will be able to remember this special time for many years to come.

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 and 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!

– Prior to your session please ensure you have completed the questionnaire, as this allows me to prepare.

– Before you leave the house, it’s a good idea to bring spare nappies and wipes.

– In addition to the baby items, don’t forget toys, non sugary snacks, and drinks for any siblings

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

-Feel free to visit my Facebook page to view backdrops, wraps, and clothing that I use in my sessions.

-If there is anything that you wish to include please do get in touch.

–  Remember, I am always happy to take naked photos but there are chances that your baby will poo on blankets.  Do not worry as this is completely normal.

– Most importantly, RELAX and enjoy your session!
