Newborn Sessions at Louise Pollitt Photography

Your Newborn Photographer in Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax

You know how everybody says "they grow so fast"?
Well... you don't know how true it is until you turn around for a moment and your tiny newborn baby is now turning one, then taking their first steps... and then starting primary school.

I have always taken a great deal of photos of my children but I truly believe our most important memories should not be captured with a few "phone snaps"  - they deserve the best.

This is what a newborn photoshoot at my studio in Birstall, close to Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax can do: preserve those incredible first few weeks of your baby's life with beautiful photographs that won't go lost with your next phone upgrade.

About your newborn session

Your Newborn Photographer in Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax

I offer two types of newborn photoshoots: Sleepy-Posed shot at my studio or lifestyle shot in the comfort of your home.


Either way, your gallery will be shot in my signature style so you know exactly what to expect.

Sleepy Posed newborn sessions take place at my specialist studio in Birstall, Batley, easily accessible from Leeds, Halifax and Huddersfield.


Sleepy Posed Newborn Session

Set in the studio in Leeds, close to Halifax and Huddersfield, this session is captured any time from birth to 12 days old, with 7 days being the very best age for baby and mum.


At 7 days, feeding is usually established and baby has settled in with the family.  Baby is usually still sleepy at this age and happy to be swaddled and cuddled into a few lovely poses.

The session includes all props and wraps and I really love it when parents tell me what colours they love, so that I can capture images that they would love to display in their houses and also in babies nursery.

The session is usually 2-4 hours long depending on how well baby settles, and it can be helpful to feed baby on arrival in the studio to ensure he/she is full up for the session. It can get warm in the studio, so its advisable to wear layers - babies get colder than we do!

The results of these session are timeless, sleepy imagery of your baby in lots of lovely sleepy poses, often referred to as a fine art  newborn image.

Lifestyle Newborn Session

Set in the comfort of your own home, I will visit you any time from birth to 4 months old, which is great if you have had a C-section and aren't wanting to venture out just yet.


This session is all about you being comfortable and capturing those first few weeks of life with your new baby.

I have many clients choose this session  if they have siblings or a fur baby, because it means that the whole family can be involved and get in on the images, and whilst I do pose you a little - I really want to capture the natural moments that are accuring between you as a new family.


It's all really relaxed and you will feel completely at ease during your session.
This session aims to give you some classic photos and memories and is a real hands off approach to capturing baby in his/her natural environment.
