Fully booked 2024

No fuss, lifestyle newborn photography, in the comfort your home

I get it, babies in props might not be your thing! Instead you want organic, natural newborn photography that captures the now.

I create authentic, genuine, honest photos of your newborn to treasure forever. A true investment to savour your family in a moment in time. As a natural light family photographer, I capture beauty in these ordinary, days, right at the beginning of life. 

My newborn photography is pure and instinctive, focusing primarily on the rawness of your new parenting adventure. I take a baby led approach and capture all the in-between moments such as feeding, burping & the milk coma cuteness!

As a mum of three, I really remember the overwhelming first few weeks of newborn life so I make your newborn photography session as relaxed and comfortable for everyone involved, so if that means you wear a baby spit covered to tracksuit pants to the session, I am 100% down with that, because I've been there too!

I do not photoshop babies, they're just too perfect. I keep all the wrinkly skin and milia, the only thing I can't capture is their great smell!

Organic, raw, natural newborn photographer

What to expect at your newborn photography session

All newborn photoshoots take place in your home, where you feel most comfortable. As a newborn photographer, I travel all over Cork, Kerry and Ireland to capture newborns in their first days of life. The session will take place in a room in your house that has the most natural light. So this may be a bedroom, living room or even a hallway.

The sessions aren't staged with props but are more reflective of what newborn life is like in your home in the first few weeks.

Does my house have to be neat and tidy

Does my house have to be neat and tidy

Heck no, my main focus is on capturing your new tiny human, and the connections and bonds you have formed.

So please don't feel under any pressure to have a show home, my home is a mess 99% of the time so I don't expect it from others.

Include the grandparents for free

your baby will thank you later!

newborn photographer?

newborn photographer?

The best time to book a newborn photographer is within the first 10 days after birth.

Ideally you would need to book the session, after your 20 week scan and choose a timeframe within 2 weeks of your due date. I do have flexibility on this provisional date as babies have a mind of their own, when it comes to making a grand entrance.

So please don't stress about this, I am also fully aware you might not realise you want newborn photos until bubs has arrived.

Cork Newborn Photographer

Sarah Kate did a fantastic job capturing some special moments at our family occasion. She made everyone feel very relaxed and produced great photos that capture people's personalities. I would ask Sarah Kate when doing something similar again.

To capture this time in your babies life?

As a mother myself, I'm well aware of the saying the days are long but the years are short! I know that welcoming your new baby is one of the greatest moments in life, but those first few weeks are often a blur and then the years fly by before you know it.

Let me capture those fleeting moments for you to remember. Whether you are looking for a pregnancy photographer, baby photographer or the crazy ride that is motherhood, I'm here for you.
