I had a newborn shoot with Louisa. She was incredible with my daughter. As soon as she met C I knew that she was in safe hands and she was incredible at getting her to sleep! The pictures have turned out absolutely outstandingly and will be cherished forever. Thanks so so much Louisa for capturing my little girl in such a precious and beautiful way and providing an amazing memento of my C as a newborn.
Absolutely loved Louisa’s professional manner and she is brilliant photographer. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome of the photos. Do not hesitate and go to Louisa… 10/10!
Wow, I was blown away by the natural images Louisa took of our newborn girl. I’m so pleased we took the time to do this while she was still so tiny. It won’t be long before I won’t be able to hold her in my arms so small.
Great experience with my maternity and newborn photoshoot.
Louisa is very talented and I would highly recommend her services!
Excellent experience of a family photoshoot. Louisa was professional and warm, making the kids feel at ease and relaxing everyone.
She chose a great spot and knew how to get great pictures of us all.
Was a lovely morning and would definitely recommend!
Louisa took the most beautiful photos of our baby daughter and was such a pro at keeping her settled throughout the whole photo shoot. I was slightly apprehensive about taking a ten day old baby to have a photo session but needn’t have been – Louisa couldn’t have been more warm and reassuring and I felt so relaxed in her studio. She’s a fantastic photographer and based in Muswell Hill in an easy to get to location. I have now booked her for a sibling photo shoot because I’m so thrilled with the images. Can’t recommend enough.
How long does a newborn photoshoot take?
Typically a newborn session can take two to three hours. I want to make sure your baby is well settled before we do any actual photographing. So if he needs a long feed, or a nappy change or just a cuddle, we build this into the time. There will be plenty of time for you to grab a cup of tea and recharge while your little miracle is being photographed.
What do I need to bring?
Anything that you normally take out and about when going out with your new baby! I appreciate for many of you this might be the first outing since hospital- so I’d pack a bag the night before full of spare nappies, bottles and formula milk if using, spare dummies if using, muslins, wet wipes and a change of clothes for Baby.
If you forget something don’t worry, I have spare nappies, wipes, breast pads and so on here.
What should I dress Baby in?
A lot of my photography is plain, neutral and simple – ‘less is more’ – so she won’t need any OTT outfits or props.
As soon as Baby is ready I’ll undress her down to her nappy and wrap her in one of my soft, cotton wraps so she’s nice and warm.
Can I park onsite?
Yes I have free, designated parking right outside my studio in Muswell Hill, which is very near Highgate Woods. You can either park here (I’m behind a gated entrance for extra privacy) or on the road outside, which has free parking all the time.
I will help you carry Baby or any other things into my studio. (I know how much stuff you need to bring anywhere with a new baby so I’m on hand to help!)
Can I bring older siblings?
Yes of course! I offer two types of photoshoot – one for just newborns and one for newborns plus siblings and parents (a newborn family shoot). The family photoshoot is a great way to mark the special bonds and connections you feel together as you grow your family and it’s also a great way to help the older one feel involved and special.
Can I take a baby out to a photoshoot so young?
Many of my babies come to me between 5-10 days old. This is often the first time new parents have left the house with their baby. I appreciate the big deal this is and can assure you my studio is deep cleaned between each baby session, the room is well ventilated and I am vaccinated against all the routine NHS vaccinations including coronavirus.
I treat the baby’s hygiene and safety extremely importantly, I have a laundry bin onsite to dispose of soiled nappies and used wipes and make sure my hands are repeatedly sanitised, tying my hair back and wearing a mask.
Have you undergone baby safety training?
I have photographed over 100 babies and new mums often remark how good I am with newborns. I have undergone extensive industry training on how to handle and photograph a baby safely and follow every precaution when it comes to putting baby’s safety first.
As a mum of two, I know what the whirlwind experience of having a new baby is like. Those first few days go by in a flash and you’re kind of in a baby fog. You can trust me to look after your child as if its my own.
I’ve not done any photoshoots before. What’s it like at Louisa Peacock Photography?
I’ve tried to think of everything so that your newborn photoshoot is truly a wonderful, memorable experience – a lovely morning out for mama and baby or the whole family as you celebrate this amazing, fleeting time in your life. Capture the moment before it’s gone forever!
What are you doing to keep the studio as safe as possible amid COVID?
Of course, you’re right to be worried about bringing a baby or child into an indoor environment. Often I’m the first person new mums and dads come to see with their newborn baby, after they’ve arrived home from the hospital. And I want you to know I’m taking all the precautions I can to keep you and your little one safe.
I have always taken hygiene and cleanliness extremely seriously. You have to, working with babies, and being a mum myself, I know first hand how important this is. Please see my blog on what I’m doing specifically to keep my studio as clean as it can be so that you can rest assured you’ll be bringing your baby to a safe photoshoot.
