Your newborn is amazing but with sleepless nights and constant feeds

The last thing you really want to do is to travel all the way to a studio for a photography session especially if you've got older children to bring along too.  Instead let me come to you I'm based in Walsall but I've photographed families throughout Staffordshire, Sutton Coldfield, Shropshire, East Midlands and the West Midlands.

An upgraded session is £140 and includes a canvas up to 12", 10 prints up to 6" and the matching digitals

A one hour lifestyle portrait session fee is £80

My lifestyle newborn sessions focus on the love and connection between you and your newborn and with each session only lasting an hour there's minimal disruption to your schedule. Best of all your baby doesn't need to be a sleep. So a lifestyle newborn session is also perfect for when you've missed the 10 day window for traditional newborn photos.

So if you’re looking for natural photos of your baby and you hate the idea of cheesy props you've come to the right place. I take a baby led approach to a lifestyle newborn session. Highlighting the love and connection between families while making the whole experience as relaxed and as comfortable as possible for you and your newborn.

A guide is sent out before every session so you'll have all the information you need for a session. A lifestyle newborn session can be booked well in advance too at any point during your pregnancy with the only requirement being a £42 deposit to secure a date. This date can then be finalised closer to your due date.

"We had an amazing newborn photoshoot with Luke. When arranging the shoot, he was easy to contact and turned up on time. He put us all at ease and had a great rapport with our children. It just felt so natural. He was very professional and we are so pleased with our photos. We would highly recommend Luke Burnhope Photography and will be looking to book future family photo sessions with him."


What makes lifestyle newborn photography different?

Lifestyle newborn photography is at it's heart baby led. By this I mean there are no uncomfortable posing and there is no putting your newborn in positions that could be unsafe. Instead the sessions are as comfortable and relaxed as they possibly can be.

All the posing I do is safe and natural for your new baby and I'll never ask you to overfeed. Especially as the last thing I want to do is mess up your routine. These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home too. So no having to worry about getting everyone ready to go out.

What can I expect from a newborn lifestyle session?

The focus of a newborn lifestyle session is connection. It is to show the love and connection between you and your new addition to the family. The session will involve a range of poses taking place in a comfortable location in your home. I'd highly recommend the master bedroom for this but any room with good light and a large comfortable surface can be used.

I don't have much room in my home will this be an issue?

This is never going to be an issue, I've photographed families in all varieties of homes from flats to large houses. The only requirements are a comfortable surface, a window for the light and of course your family!
