Newborn and baby photography in Poole
I have had my business for almost 9 years now and 8 weeks ago I moved house, complete with the most beautiful newborn photography studio attached to the back of my home.
I couldn't be happier with how it looks and feels, so I really hope you want to read on to see for yourself too.
9 years of photographing newborns
In January 2022 I will have been running Samantha Prewett Photography for 9 years!
I was so fortunate to have a gorgeous light open plan space in my previous home , where I started offering newborn photography sessions almost 9 years ago.
As well as my family, my business has also grown and it was time to move into a bigger home with a separate newborn and baby photography studio.
I officially opened my studio in Poole (less than 2 miles away from where I lived before) at the end of October and immediately fell in love with it. My first session was absolutely everything I could have wished for and more. You can read about it here if you would like to.
Natural light newborn photography
As a natural light photographer, the available light is absolutely essential when choosing a space for my newborn photography sessions.
I spent a lot of time looking at houses, and at different times of the day to assess the light coming in through the windows (and as it turns out , even the roof!)
If you would like to find out why I choose to only use natural light, the answer is the word, it is "natural" . If you are interested to read into this more, you may like to check out my natural light newborn photography article.
Home comforts, and more!
My photography studio has a beautiful brand new sofa which doubles up as a comfy place for parents to chill out during their session (whilst I take care of their baby and create beautiful memories) and a place for the parent and baby photos. I have found myself migrating to the sofa over the past few years rather than a backdrop as parents are more comfortable and relaxed, so this helps produce beautiful natural images. It also makes the perfect setting for cosy family photos should you have any older sibling(s) that you might wish to bring to your newborn session.
I have a lovely brand new coffee machine , which uses recyclable pods (I am working on getting reusable ones) and plastic free snacks available, as well as cold drinks.
I have wi-fi access for you to use, with the password on the wall.
The studio is attached to the back of my house, with the kitchen right next to it should you need to warm up bottles.
I am a naturally clean and tidy person so you should feel at ease if you need to use the bathroom whilst you are here. I ensure this is thoroughly cleaned before each photography session.
Beautiful selection of neutral props
I have built up a stunning collection of neutral co ordinating props, outfits and wraps over the past 9 years. I love putting the natural colours and textures together to create beautiful set ups that compliment your baby. Your baby is always the focus of every single image I take, not the props.
