newborn photography in essex

Those sleepy yawns, tiny cries and biiiig stretches. Kerrie is a Colchester Newborn photographer encapsulating it all for you to remember as they grow.

Tiny Babies

Welcoming your baby to the world is a truly magical experience that you'll want to cherish forever. From their pouty lips to their tiny fingers and toes, those early days are filled with priceless moments that you'll want to capture. As a Colchester newborn photographer, I'm here to help you do just that.

As soon as you step into my cosy studio just outside Colchester, you'll be enveloped by the warm and inviting atmosphere, accentuated by the natural light flooding through the large windows. My goal is to create a comfortable and relaxing space for you and your little one, ensuring that we capture those precious early moments perfectly.

My approach to photography is organic and timeless, with a focus on showcasing the natural beauty of your baby. I don't believe in using elaborate props or forceful posing that can detract from your baby's essence. Instead, I love to let your baby take the lead and capture their unique personality and character in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

If you're looking for a Colchester newborn photographer who will help you create beautiful, lasting memories of your little one's first days, look no further.

If you want to document your journey from bump to baby my 'Watch Me Grow' collection encapsulates  three milestones* at a reduced price if booking at the same time. I'll pre-book your sessions throughout babies first year and add their new images into their online gallery each time.

This is a great package for collating a collection of milestone memories of you and your baby. You'll see just how much they have changed from session to session and ensure you have beautiful photography to look back on.


This package includes 15 digital images from each session, 15 mounted prints (5 from each session) and a voucher towards an album which will become the perfect keepsake of baby's first year.

This little 'first year of' baby book will become a treasure for your baby's keepsake box and a lovely memory to look back on as they grow up.

what is the best age for a newborn shoot?

how soon after my baby is born should i book?

how long does a newborn photo shoot take?

what if my baby is unsettled or wont sleep?

book your shoot

Ideally babies should be under 14 days to ensure they are nice and sleepy. But you can book up to a month old.

I advise booking before baby is born after your 20 week scan. The shoot is flexible according to baby's birthday!

if baby doesn't want to be put down we can do lots of cuddly shots instead. But I allow lots of time for feeding, burping and cuddling to ensure baby can fully relax.

I allow up to 2.5 hours for newborns. Most of this time will be spent feeding, burping and changing! But we want to create a relaxed cosy atmosphere for them to drift off to sleep.


I'm Kerrie.
