Natural Newborn Photography | Newborn baby Photographer, Glasgow

I'm not going to lie, when I first made the switch from styled newborn photography to baby led newborn photography, I was a little bit nervous.

How would I fill a gallery with no props for variation? How would I deliver the 25 images that I promise from a newborn shoot, if all I was photographing was a baby with nothing else to jazz up the session?

How silly of me, those nerves were completely pointless. You see, I really struggle to keep my session images to 25, infact for the most part, clients will walk away with many more images than that.

And it's all because your baby is amazing, so different and unique. Full of little traits that no other baby has. So by following their lead in a session, the possibilities are endless and you'll be left with images of your baby, exactly as you'll want to remember them.

Its best to photograph newborns in the first 14-21 days post birth, however my more relaxed style of photography means that this is not an absolute requirement.

All sessions take place in my cosy home studio in Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire. A newborn session will last approximatley 1.5-2.5 hours.

Its best to book well in advance as newborn spaces are limited. I only photograph a set number of newborns per month and book out space in my diary to accomodate early and late arrivals. However, I will on occasion have some last minute availability.

Please give me a shout if you’d like to chat about a session.

Much love,

JVP. x

Favourite Image - December 2018 | Baby Photographer Glasgow

Sometimes, I take an image that really makes me feel something, for some reason or another it moves me. This is one of those images. I’ve looked at it so many times and I love it more each time. I can’t put my finger on exactly why I love it so much, but that wee hand hold between Father and Son has definitely got something to do with it. ❤️

I’m so glad that I was able to capture the moment for this new Father now and for this new baby to enjoy in years to come. ❤️

Simply Baby Sessions | Newborn and Baby Photographer Glasgow

I’m so excited to introduce my new ‘Simply Baby’ Mini Sessions for Newborns due in December 2018 onwards.

These sessions are geared towards those of you who want to document your newborn but don’t have a need for lots of images. ‘Simply Baby’ sessions are all about your newborn. There are no parent or sibling images included and the shoot is very simple, focussing on just your baby in a simple white vest, there are no wrapped, posed or styled images included.

The sessions are much shorter than usual newborn sessions as there is no need for your baby to be asleep for the shots, so you will only need to be with me for 45minutes to an hour.

You will recieve 10 digital images from your session, with full printing rights to reproduce the images as you wish for an all inclusive price of £195.

These sessions are perfect for brand newborns and older babies too, so please fell free to get in touch if you have missed the newborn stage.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you.

Much love,

JVP

Pippa | Session Sneak Peak | Newborn Photographer Glasgow | Baby Photographer Renfrewshire

As time passes, its so easy to forget how absolutely tiny our little babies are when they arrive into this world. Everything changes so quickly, so before you know it this tiny brand new stage is over. So, for me, scale is very important in new-born photographs. I always try to incorporate poses or frames that best display how small a newborn is.

The moment I saw Pippa I knew that I had to highlight how tiny and petite she is. So here we are, Pippa, 5 little pounds of pretty perfection, all wrapped up safely in her Daddy's hands. 

Safe in hands, newborn photographer Glasgow

Newborns Unscripted | Baby Photographer Renfrewshire

'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication' - Leonardo Da Vinci

Isn't that the truth? In years to come you won't care about elaborate poses or props. All you will care about is how your baby looked when they were brand new in this world. Don't underestimate the power of a simple image and how it will make you feel when those precious newborn days are a distant memory.

2018 sessions are now available for booking. If, like me, you can see the beauty in simplicity, please get in touch.

With love,

JVP

Simply Newborn Sessions | Newborn Photographer | Baby Photographer Renfrewshire

There really isn't anything more beautiful than a tiny newborn baby is there? I've been photographing babies for years now; my newborn photography sessions follow the same structure each time, I use outfits and props and include sibling shots or parent shots, I'll add hats and teddies and little headbands or pillows or covers. We'll settle and feed and photograph and repeat this on and on until all the shots are in the bag. Any of you who have ever had a newborn baby will know that all of this takes time, sometimes lots of time, 3-4 hours in some cases because you just never know how baby will be on the day. Sometimes baby will be awake for hours and we have to wait and wait for your little bundle to settle over to sleep before we can really get on with the session because an awake baby usually doesn't like to be pose for the photographer. :) 

Recently I've been thinking about this and really wondering if we always have to go this route with newborn photography. More and more I find myself drawn to the more natural shots in my sessions, the shots were baby is comfortably lying in a position that they have naturally fallen in to. As a mum myself, I'd want to remember every little detail about my child, it all passes so quickly (cliche, but true ) I'd want to remember exactly how they are, how they lay, how they curled, how they really looked when they were totally brand new. So with this in mind, I have decided to incorporate a new style of newborn photography into my business, simple newborn sessions, with no props or posing. Just beautiful, natural images of your beautiful bundle of joy.

The Simply Newborn Sessions are quick sessions that focus on your baby. The session will take approx 1 hour and includes approximately 20 high resolution, fully edited digital images and a framed print from your session.

The Simply Newborn Sessions are £250; There is a £100 reservation fee to hold your slot and the remainder is due at the time of your session. Please get in touch now would like to book your slot.

Newborn Photography Glasgow - Baby Ciaran

This little guy came to me recently for his newborn photography shoot in my little studio near Glasgow. The third and final baby in a lovely family that I've had the pleasure of photographing in the past. A gorgeous little guy who has made his family complete. How lovely for me to be chosen to take his first professional photos, it makes my heart sing.
