Newborn Photographer London, Herts, Surrey, Essex, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Kent, Middlesex, Sussex



Do you photograph/film in London only?

We're based in London but we cover the whole country and abroad. We do however have to add on a charge to cover expenses and on rare occasions accommodation costs however we try to keep these costs to a minimum by only charging the cost of travel and daily bread.

What is the best time to plan a newborn session?

The best time to plan and book the newborn photo session is at the end of your pregnancy, the last couple of months. The best time for the photo shoot is the first 2 weeks after the birth. This is the time when the baby is plastic and sleepy, allowing posing and quick work. After that is almost impossible.

As people are not aware of all this sometimes we have short notice requests and we still do 1-2 month old babies if the parents insist but we're very clear that many poses can't be applied after the first few weeks.

Do you give the digital files?

Yes we do! All photos are yours, edited, print ready in hi-res, having "Home Use" non-commercial rights rights, which means that you can print them wherever you want. Non-commercial means you can't generate profit with the photos.

How to prepare the baby for the shoot?

1/ Knowing your baby's sleep and eat pattern, choose the right time for the photo session. To be updated few days before the shoot and subject of availability.

2/ If we shoot in your house, prepare a hot room 28C, white noise, blow dryer, womb sounds ... if you don't have don't worry.

3/ Make sure that your baby is ready for 2h shoot, which means feeding, poo, etc. to be done just before the session.

What's the difference between edited and retouched photos?

All your photos come edited in high resolution. Cropped, colour corrected, colour enhanced, sharpen, etc. basic edit techniques.

The chosen 5 - 10 retouch photos come with more advanced retouching techniques applied like: spot removal, eye opening, body shaping, skin smoothing, advanced colouration, BW, fine-art edit (ask for painterly effects), background removal, etc.

What's the difference between your studio or our location?

In our premise we can choose more props, backgrounds, floors, etc. On location we can load less items, just enough for the job. If the baby doesn't cooperate and wakes up, we have more time to comfort him. On location we'll need 30min just to set up and 15min to get things back in the car. 

What makes your services different and special?

It's a long list:

1/ We go on location

2/ We offer video services for newborns (watch Words of Blessing video on this page) same or other day

3/ We have properly educated and experienced magazine retouchers and album designers

4/ Speed. You'll have your images in no time

5/ We give all images, 20 or 200, all yours

6/ We know how to comfort babies and squeeze the maximum of the photo shoot

How do we pay?

Cash on the day just before the photo session or bank transfer the day before.

£100 is needed to book "a week day". As nobody knows in advance which day will be the best one, you book a weekly slot and the week before we'll get in touch to set the right day and time.

How many photos will we get?

We don't count the photos, so as more, as different - as better. If the baby cooperates and sleeps deeply, we can create more, otherwise less. 20 or 500, it's up to the baby. As of the delicate matter of newborn and baby photography, we can't give any guarantee of how many general and good photos we'll be able to take.

You're in good and experienced hands, so no worries, we'll squeeze every bit of the photo session to make you happy with amazing images.

When can we have the images?
We try to deliver up to 2 days after the photo shoot, because we know how important for you is to enjoy and share the images with friends and relatives.
Do you include prints?

We offer the best print service in UK but it is not included as the options are too many. Just login your online gallery, choose the photo, choose format, media, payment method and get it delivered.

The quality is unbeatable and can't compare with Tesco and local services. Because the price is a little higher too we recommend to use the gallery print facility for large wall arts - frames, canvas, acrylic, etc. You'll love the detail, colours, everything. For small prints it's up to you and up to your budget.

Disclaimer: the professional print service integrated in your online gallery is not in-house Peter Lane Photography.

Can we do the shoot in our house?

Yes of course. Keep in mind few things: If we shoot newborns you have to prepare room temperature 28C, not for the whole apartment but for the chosen room spot, ideally using blow heater.

Depends on your location you may be charged £50 "home studio fee", and travel, parking ULEZ, Congestion charge expenses if you're in Central London or outside M25.

Not answered your question?
