Baby Photography

Capturing new additions to a family is wonderful fun. As a father myself, I know the joy and the complexities of having children and babies and also know how important it is to capture images of family life, and to produce baby photography that provides a record of a very important moment in time. My newborn baby photography is solely lifestyle based, it documents the family enjoying a new life in their midst and looks to create a visual memory of a few hours in the life of you and yours. A newborn baby is a lot of work and a lot of cuddles so I like the lifestyle documentary approach here rather than specific baby posing in a studio.

By the age of  6 months babies usually start to smile and often are in a position where they can sit up. This makes for the next perfect opportunity to photograph them and to this end I often recommend a shoot at this point. These shoots can be again natural lifestyle shoots as a home is wonderful when photographed from a baby’s point of view and a natural shoot also allows for easy inclusion of parents and siblings.  Alternatively this is also the perfect age to use portable studio equipment to capture well lit studio style shots in your own home of your baby sitting up, with a favourite toy beaming at the camera.

For examples of my recent baby photography please have a look at the blog posts below and get in touch if you’d like to arrange a session.






To the website of Norfolk Family Photographer Phil Barnes. I've been a full time professional for over 10 years and during that time I've photographed hundreds of families. I really enjoy my work and hopefully it shows. I enjoy maternity, baby, family and special event photography and photograph people in their own homes, out on location, and at special gatherings and holiday homes. My work takes place in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire for the most part but occasionally I'm asked to travel even further. Drop me a line I'd love to hear from you...
