Newborn Photography Experiences

At Little Bean Baby Photography, our Newborn Photography Experiences are at the centre of what we do – they remain our most popular photoshoots. We have had the joy of photographing hundreds of Little Beans in our Wiltshire based studio with many of our families travelling from Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset for these special photographs.

We use the word ‘Experience’ very deliberately. Our mums and dads don’t come to Little Beans for a few quick photographs, they are invited into our dedicated Bean Pod studio for a relaxing day with teas, coffees, cookies, and supportive chats about all-things-newborn. The most important thing to us, beyond capturing these precious early memories, is to give our new parents a chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves. We take care of everything, so we encourage you to catch up on sleep, messages, and quiet time as much as possible!

Then, Sonja works her magic. We take our time making sure that your little one is comfortable and content, keeping the studio warm and cosy, and the lights down.
Each session is entirely baby-led and we will never try to make your baby do something he or she is not happy with. While we have our pre-determined list of favourite poses, we’ll work the order and final flow around the signals your baby gives us, stopping for feeds, cuddles, and nappy-changes as often as necessary.

If you’ve seen some of Sonja’s work before, you’ll know the style: it’s always classic, timeless, and unfussy. The focus is always on the baby, and the images are not over-burdened with props! Your collection of images will be a way for you to look back on this special time, the first few weeks of your baby’s life, and remember all those beautiful newborn details that are unique to your bean.
