A luxury newborn photoshoot experience!


Hello and welcome to my Newborn Photographer Barnsley page.

If you are here you must be looking for a Newborn Photographer, Barnsley, South Yorkshire. This is such an exciting time in your life, and I'm super excited that you are considering me to capture your precious memories. I know this can be such a stressful and daunting time for yourselves, and choosing the right newborn photographer in Barnsley is something that can add more anxiety to make sure they get the most beautiful photos of your little one. 

Creating a new life is the most rewarding thing anyone can do, this is why I love to capture those moments in the most relaxed way. 

Here is some information regarding my style of photography and what you can expect in your newborn photography session Barnsley.

My preferred style of photography is timeless and natural, capturing your baby in their traditional positions, with gentle guidance from myself.  

My home studio is easily accessible on the outskirts of Barnsley. It is only a few minutes from the M1 and A1 motor ways.  

When you arrive at the studio we will have a little chat to ease any concerns and nerves. I want you to feel as comfortable and as relaxed as possible. 

 Your session will last anything from an hour up to around 3.5 hours, however the timings are not exact as we know how unpredictable babies can be. We will start with baby images first and then family images including the parents, baby and siblings who attend. My sessions are all about the natural bond between you all and the authentic ness of a newborn, so there will only be gentle direction from myself.

1 Million % would recommend! First of all Becky was able to accommodate us for a newborn shoot at very short notice. From arriving at her studio to leaving she made us feel so welcome and at ease. She was amazing with our newborn (who was having and off day) and if she wasn’t an amazing photographer we would definitely be hiring her as a nanny as she knew exactly what to do. She gave us plenty of time and was so patient when we needed to feed and change him.

As a Barnsley newborn photographer, I only offer baby led newborn photography sessions. If your newborn is not happy, we will stop, relax and try again, there is no pressure at all. I always make sure that I can provide the absolute best experience for you and your newborn. So by being newborn led it makes your session much more relaxed and enjoyable. It also means that your session may not be as long as other newborn sessions. Furthermore, if there are older brothers and sisters who will be coming, they won't be cooped up in a studio for as long. 

My goal as a Barnsley newborn photographer is to provide you with timeless, authentic, classic, natural, semi-posed images of your little one, that can take pride of place  in your home and cherished forever.

The best time for a newborn session is when your newborn is between 5-21 days old. However, due to my style of photography there is no strict time limit.



During your session I always aim to ask if you can think of a piece of wall in their homes that looks empty and lonely, and would benefit with some professionally made wall art. Here at White Orchard Photography, I offer a variety of wall art and print products.

Becky was excellent when we went for our newborn/family photoshoot. She was incredibly patient and professional as well as welcoming us warmly into her studio. I have already recommended her to some of my friends as her work is incredible. Thank you so much for capturing some amazing moments that we will cherish forever.




WHEN SHOULD NEWBORN PHOTOS BE TAKE? Newborn Photography sessions take place within the first couple of weeks of your baby’s life! It is always best to have the session pre-booked before the baby is born, this will help to reserve your date and time. I know this date can always change as it is based on your due date (and I know the little darlings never like to stick to this date), but by pre-booking this allows me to organise my diary and book a rescheduled date if needed. As soon as the baby arrives and the parents are comfortable you should contact me either by phone or email to confirm the exact date and time of the photo-shoot! I like to book my Newborn sessions normally between 6 to 20 days of your baby’s life, as this is the perfect time when the babies are the most sleepy and flexible allowing the baby to be more sleepy. However, the sessions can start from the moment you are ready, this can be within the first 24 hours, having a fresh 24 session

WHAT MONTH SHOULD YOU DO A NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT? Newborn photoshoots often take place in a studio or in the comfort of your own home. Due to this, you can have a newborn photoshoot in any month of the year.

CAN YOU DO NEWBORN PHOTOS YOURSELF? Yes of course, anyone can take photos of their little ones. If you do not have the funds to invest in a professional doing your photos. All you need is a good camera and so beautiful window light and you can snap away. I would just say, having a professional newborn photoshoot, you will get full experience, including being able to be in the pictures yourself, creating memories to last a life time.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SESSION? The session can last up to 3.5 hours, however I do try to keep the time as little as possible so not to distress the baby. This includes nursing, cuddling, changing and putting the baby to sleep. To ensure baby's comfort I advice to keep your home as warm as can be. Newborn photography can take a lot of patience and time. I always make sure the baby is happy and safe and that families get the most beautiful images of their little treasures.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO THE SESSION? I like to keep things as natural and neutral as possible. For the little one I would recommend a white vest, this can be either short sleeved or long sleeved. I would bring a couple, just in case we have any little sicky moments. For the grown ups I would advise to wear something neutral, maybe white/cream. Pale blue works well also, especially for the bottom half.

SHOULD WE BRING ANYTHING? Trying to remember everything to take out with you once your little one arrives, can be a challenge, especially for first time parents. Apart from your usual items that is carried in the baby bag, I would advise to bring extra milk if you are bottle feeding and a pacifier if your little one has taken to one. I do have some spare nappies in the studio just in case they are needed. For yourself and siblings, a drink as it can get warm in the studio and snacks to bribe the sibling for those cuddly photos.

WHERE WILL THE NEWBORN SESSION TAKE PLACE? Your newborn photography session will take place in the comfort of my own lovely home studio, on the outskirts of Barnsley and Rotherham, at Manvers, South Yorkshire. It is within easy access from the M1 and A1 motorways.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS? You will receive your link for your online viewing gallery is around 3-4 weeks, usually less after the session date. You will be able to download your selected amount of digital images straight from the gallery. I suggest doing this on a computer or laptop as mobile phones can decrease the quality of the images.

DO YOU SUPPLY PRINTED PRODUCTS? Yes, I offer a selection of fine art and normal printed products, from lose prints to albums. You will receive a pdf document with the products and pricing in. There is also a selection in the studio for you to have a browse through during the session. I always suggest purchasing some kind of printed product, such as prints, album or folio, as they can be a staple to your home, as well as giving you something tangible to show your family and friends and have on display.
