Newborn & Baby Photography

Newborn & Baby Photographer at Slinky Photography Studio, Wirral.

Welcome to and thank you for coming! Here you can see our beautiful newborn and baby portraits, find answers to your questions and hopefully book a session yourself. My name is Amy and I specialise in bump, newborn and family photography on the Wirral. I have photographed many lovely clients over the past ten years and I am an award winning newborn photographer.

Newborn photography ideally takes place in the first two weeks after baby is born. Because of this, our clients generally book in before little one arrives. The day of your session is confirmed once baby is here safely. In these early days, your newborn is still very sleepy and contented for their photographs and will curl up into the cosy, womb like poses you see over in our Newborn Photography gallery. Newborn sessions take place at our Wirral studio. Based on a farm in rural Irby, our clients assure us it's a relaxing, enjoyable day. The studio is well equipped with everything we and you need – meaning your only job is to ensure baby is well fed throughout the session. Put your feet up, relax (for possibly the first time in 10 days!) and enjoy a cuppa and some cake while we create memories.

Our clients travel from throughout Merseyside and Cheshire and further afield. The studio is located just a few minutes off the M53 so is easily reached from across the North West and North Wales.

When should I book?

We welcome your booking after your 12 weeks scan and many people book around 20 weeks into their pregnancy. The booking fee of £100 is payable at this time and once booked, we are expecting your little one. Whether your baby arrives early or late, we will schedule your session in the first few weeks – the ideal time for newborn portraits!

Give us a call as soon as baby is born and we can confirm the exact day of the session. Newborn sessions are available Monday – Friday and usually take place when baby is between 7 and 14 days.

How long does the session take?

Be prepared to be with us a little while, 2-3 hours is average. We endeavour to make you comfortable during your visit!

How to prepare? What to bring?

Your newborn Welcome Guide supplied at the time of booking is full of useful information, drop us a phone call or email if you haven't received it!

What happens next?

Around a week after your session we'll invite you back to see your images on screen at the studio! If you just can't wait, we also offer a social media 'Sneak Peek' on our Facebook or Instagram page – this is pre-arranged, your images are never shared without your permission.

Then the tricky part! We can work with you to design Wall Art collections, albums or anything else you'd like. It's helpful if you can bring photographs (mobile snaps are fine) and measurements of your home to your ordering session.
