 Specialist newborn gallery by Secret Smile Photography

Newborns are only this little for a little while. Capturing their tininess within the first few weeks is so important, I wish specialist newborn photography had been popular when I had my son 10 years ago.

Capturing the little details such as their squishy little toes, dinky little fingers and their tiny button noses. These little details can get lost so quickly in a flurry of night feeds, nappy changes and trying to keep on top of the washing pile!

Put your trust in a photographer who is not only a specialist newborn and baby photographer but has been mentored and trained by some of the top newborn photographers in the country, has been trained to soothe, settle and pose your baby as well as being well-versed in newborn safety. I am also a member of BANPAS, an organisation who actively promotes safe baby posing practices and provides resources for parents on how to choose your newborn photographer.


The Secret Smile Photography studio on Ackroyd Street in Morley, Leeds, is warm, comfortable and relaxing. I am not only a specialist newborn and baby photographer but I am also a mother and know what it is like to feel overwhelmed and exhausted in those first few weeks which is the recommended time within which to have your newborn photography session as babies under 14 days are still sleepy and curled up (I do photograph newborns up to 4 weeks old on the understanding that baby will be stronger and more alert so not all poses will be possible).

Newborn sessions are done entirely at your baby's pace so only 1 session a day will be booked in. This ensures that your experience at Secret Smile Photography will be calm and relaxed with no rushing. There is plenty of time during the session for feeding, soothing, settling and posing your precious baby for their photographs. The session can take up to 3 hours and using a colour scheme or theme of your choosing we will work together to capture the images you want of your new baby that you can treasure forever. Newborn sessions are £65 and pre-booking is recommended to avoid disappointment as only a certain number of newborn bookings are taken per month.

You can book as soon as you know your due date, this ensures that space is left in the diary whether your baby arrives early or late. Once your precious newborn has arrived we can work together to get a date in the diary for your newborn photography session. Newborns are best photographed before they are 2 weeks old so early booking is essential as leaving it until baby is born can often be too late.

If your baby has already arrived you can book your newborn photography session using our online booking system here.
