In-Home Natural Newborn Photography

When the time comes and your little one is finally here, in your arms, just a few days old, there is nothing more important. These precious moments are always worth documenting and they gain even more value over time. They will always remind you about the time that things were so new and so special (and sometimes a little bit hard too). 

What are my natural newborn sessions like?

My newborn in-home sessions are a mix of documentary and lifestyle. Your family moments will be captured in the place where you belong the most, your home, the way it was when your little one arrived. You will not need much, just yourselves and your little baby. You don’t have to worry about anything. If your baby needs feeding or anything else, we will adjust the session and I always make sure that the best is done not only for your little one but for the mums too. There is no stress, no rush and some very special moments can be captured unexpectedly, e.g. between feeding or changing. I am always looking for unique, unposed moments. I will capture you holding your baby, all the important details and all the newborn love. I also come to all my newborn and family sessions not only as a photographer but also as a mum of two. 

If you feel like you would like to book a natural newborn photography session with me, let’s get in touch and we can arrange a short phone call about my sessions before you complete your booking. To receive my Brochure, please get in touch HERE.

When is the best time having a newborn photo shoot?

When speaking about newborn babies, it is usually up to 3 weeks from the birth. From my own experience, if you would like to have some natural newborn photos, it is the best when your little ones are about 1 week old. This is the best time if everything goes fine and you are recovering well after the brith. If you feel that you need more time, we can always get in touch and chat about the best possibilities for your family.

When shall we book or get in touch?

As my capacity for each month is limited, it is the best to get in touch about 3-4 months before the due date. I can take only certain amount of reservations so I can be flexible when the little ones arrive. My weekend capacity is less flexible from September 2021 and I will be offering more weekdays for photo shoots.

If you would like to get in touch for my Brochure, please fill the form HERE and I will be in touch as soon as I can (usually within 48 hours).

Best wishes,

Michaela xx

Walking along the beach always brings some calmness to my heart. The sound of the waves, the breeze playing with my hair and the sea shells catching my eyes every so often. A beach is a great place for family memories, so many lovely opportunities for play, a great...

"Michaela Mac Donnell came to our house one sunny Sunday morning and spent a few hours with us capturing our life as a new family. She is such a lovely person and so easy to work with. It was like having a friend in the house as opposed to a stranger and she just observed us and took photos, with as little intervention as possible. Her use of natural light, beautiful composition and ability to capture the best of us meant I got exactly what I was looking for and far more beyond that. Thank you Michaela.
