Newborn Photoshoot Horsham

Welcome to Samphire Photography - Horsham, Sussex

Hi I’m Clare and I just wanted to say how incredible and magical the first few days of a baby’s life are. 

As a Mum of three, I know there is nothing in the world more amazing and precious than a brand new baby.

Taken during their first few precious weeks, newborn portrait photography is an art involving calming techniques, posing expertise (where your baby’s safety is always paramount) and lots of patience to ensure you are rewarded with outstanding portraits of your little one.

Sessions take place in my comfortable purpose-built studio where you have access to a good selection of props, hats, wraps and blankets to compliment your baby’s natural beauty.  You are also welcome to introduce your own, for that personal touch.



Newborn photoshoots generally take place when your little one is up to 2 weeks old, but I photograph newborn babies up to a month old. We are very careful to practice safe posing methods to ensure your baby is safe at all times.

No Rush

RELAX – There is no rush with babies. Each session is 2-4 hours and they are totally baby-led. Take some time out and watch me work whilst you help yourself to the tea, coffee and snacks I have available for you.


It is never too early to book. Initially we set a tentative session date based on your due date. Babies rarely come when they are predicted to, but this gives us a good place to start. Session dates are then confirmed after your little one is born.

Your Newborn Photoshoot Horsham takes place in our studio in Littleworth, near Partridge Green (Sussex) and are fully baby led:

To create a beautiful gallery of images that capture every precious detail we will use wonderfully crafted props with a variety of fabrics and colours.

Ahead of your session we will discuss styling and help you prepare so that on the day of the session all you will need to do will be sit back and relax while our baby whisperer is at work!

Everybody wants THE BEST for their children and this is exactly what your little one deserves in a Newborn Portrait Session too.

That is why my relaxed, baby-led sessions capture memories not just for you but for your babies too.

Short, sweet and simple they include both the session fee and 3 digital images. With the option to upgrade to more if you wish.

These sessions are undertaken while the baby is fully wrapped. Due to the timeframe, these sessions are only suitable for single babies.

Twins, triplets etc are unable to book together for these mini sessions. The images will be of the baby only – if you wish to include any other family members in your newborn photographs please consider a full session experience.

Have you also considered a maternity session to celebrate this special event in your life?

Such a UNIQUE TIME that women get to experience, it is definitely something that you should celebrate.

Enjoying a maternity experience with me will do just that and leave you with LASTING MEMORIES for you and your new baby.
