ABOUT MY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEEN
Behind The Camera
Hey, I’m Danielle,
but you can call me the baby whisperer.
Or your new favourite Newborn Photographer in Aberdeen! 😛 I promise no awkward posing and a truly laid-back, put your feet up kinda experience. I can handle the hyper siblings, the excitable fur babies who might tag along for a pic, and even the most camera-shy and nervous of new parents! And trust me, it will be like a little spa day for your wee one (I’ve actually been told that!), plenty of snuggles, feeds and pampering.
Your baby can literally feel when they are in safe hands, and I promise my confidence comes from experience and is reflected in the posing and your photos.
I only accept 8 newborn bookings in any month to allow wiggle room for every baby. Once your baby arrives, that is when we set an exact date for your session.
You can rest assured your baby is in the best of hands when booking a newborn session with me.

HOW DO I BOOK?
£99 gets your due date in the diary. This fee is deductible from your chosen package. I will send over a couple of bits for you to read and sign then when your baby arrives – you just let me know and we fix a date for your session, voila!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
I take bookings from as early as your 12-week scan. So, don’t delay as I can only book in 8 babes a month.
Since babies often have a tendency to arrive early or late, I can only accept this limited number of bookings every month to ensure I have space for each session.
I sometimes have space on short notice, but the earlier you book the better, as I cannot guarantee spaces once I have hit my maximum bookings.
So I will say it one more time (I hate to let anyone down!) please don’t delay in booking.
DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE A PACKAGE NOW?
Nope! All that is required is your £99 booking fee (which is deductible from any package) then you can select which package you’d like when your view your gallery.
HOW OLD SHOULD MY BABY BE?
I try to photograph all my newborns within 7-21 days, however, I have photographed babies older than this. It is better to have your newborn photos done at some stage than to miss out entirely if you think your baby is too old. 2020 saw me photographing newborns at 11 weeks, some of which pictures you will see above. It’s not too much different and I promise you – you will only regret NOT having them done. You will never ever regret having pictures done.
Your baby will change so quickly within the first few months of their lives that I always say, any stage is better than none.
ARE NEWBORN SESSIONS SAFE?
With me – absolutely!
I pride myself on the extensive training I have had and can confidently say I am one of the safest and well trained Aberdeen newborn photographers – training with several different leading experts every year. You are in the best of hands and I can pretty much guarantee a chilled out, relaxing time, where you can kick back and watch me pose your new little beauty for a couple of hours.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
Newborn sessions last anywhere between 2-4 hours. These sessions are baby-led and I always take my time to ensure you are leaving with a gallery you will love.
Typically I ask when you arrive at the studio, that you strip your baby down to nappy and wrap in a cozy blanket and start the session with a feed. This allows your baby to fall into a lovely sort of “milk drunk” and makes my work a little bit easier. In fact, this feed is almost essential to my workflow, so I do ask you to try time that feed in, as best as you can, for when you arrive at the studio.
I will do a variety of poses on my newborn beanbag of your baby alone, poses with siblings if required, and usually, I finish up with posing with parents. Don’t worry, I get a lot of parents who don’t want their photos taken, but please rest assured it is only a couple of pics, and your baby will LOVE these photos in years to come, even if you have rolled out the bed after a long night of feeding, I promise you – you will love these photos.
CAN I TAKE MY OTHER CHILDREN (OR MY FUR BABY) TO THE SESSION?
Absolutely! If your other children (or fur-baby) are a little on the free-spirited side just be sure to bring some entertainment/snacks (avoid chocolate if possible, saves any messy faces!), as it can be quite a lengthy wait for them.
Where possible I will photograph them first or the last thing with their new brother or sister.
Some sessions will see one parent arrive with baby for the first half of the session, whilst the other parent arrives during the second half when we are ready for sibling (or pet!) shots and family photos. This works really well if you live close by and have this as an option.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Just yourselves…..uuummmm maybe snacks?
I have all the goodies and pretty much everything covered. I have an impressive selection of wraps, headbands, props, backdrops, and even bespoke dresses for Mums to wear if they wish.
Essentially, just your baby bag or anything you wouldn’t normally leave the house with now that your wee one has arrived! I do keep a selection of newborn sized nappies, wipes, changing mat, cotton wool, feminine products, and even new dummies to pass on should you wish to try one. Even if you don’t intend to use a dummy – just for during your session, sometimes a dummy can help and you can take a new one away with you!
….and snacks. because you’ll have some downtime and be able to enjoy a hot cuppa maybe for the first time since your wee one has arrived? 🙂 enjoy!
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
I aim for a gallery of 20 images, sometimes there will be a few more in there, but I guarantee 20 to choose from.
WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO VIEW MY GALLERY?
I ask you to come back to the studio around 7-10 days after your session. This is when you will have your gallery viewing. I will be able to help you choose the images you love and create your desired outcome, whether you wish to have a selection of digitals, prints or create stunning bespoke wall art, the choice is yours! Please make sure all decision-makers can be present at the viewing as this is when you will place your order. So if work rotas need to be taken into consideration for your viewing, let me know and we can sort out a good time for you all to come back.
CAN I MAKE MY OWN PRINTS FROM THE IMAGES?
Yes of course! All my packages include a specific amount of high-res digital images, which grant you personal usage rights, so you can print to your heart’s content!
DO YOU OFFER MATERNITY SESSIONS?
Yes of course! I love maternity sessions! They are the perfect pamper for Mums to be, a chance to focus on them selves and have a bit of a pamper before baby arrives. You can read more about those sessions by clicking here.
CAN YOU HELP US DESIGN A STATEMENT WALL ART DISPLAY OF OUR NEW IMAGES?
YES YES YES!
Wall art, my favourite thing! 🙂
