Newborn Photography

Because you only get one chance

The first week of your baby's life is magical, a unique and life changing time. As parents ourselves, we know how quickly your baby will change. You only get one chance to capture your baby as they are right now, and once it's gone you can never get that time back. Our timeless NewbornArt images are something we are very proud of, and we love to be able to create these very special portraits for new parents to treasure.

Capture those perfect moments with Ford Photography’s Newborn photography sessions, our award-winning studio is based in Wakefield, a short drive away from Pontefract, Barnsley and Doncaster.

Newborn babies are photographed under ten days old, this once in a lifetime shoot takes place in our dedicated newborn studio. The adjacent viewing lounge is also booked out just for you and your new baby too, with big comfy sofas for you to relax on and space to spread things around in.

Most expectant mums book in with me when they have had their 20 week scan to ensure that we will be able to fit them in.

Your newborn studio shoot includes:

  • Relaxing and memorable newborn shoot, we dedicate up to three hours for you and your new baby.
  • Creative image preparation, the best images from your shoot will be edited for your private in-house viewing.
  • A private cinema style viewing for you and a guest, preview and design your wall art images in our viewing lounge, about a week after your shoot.
