Newborn Photographer Horsham

Portrait of the owner of Samphire Photography based in West 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 your babies first month, 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 complement your baby’s natural beauty.  You are also welcome to introduce your own, for that personal touch.

I also offer Maternity Sessions if you would also like to capture this wonder stage of your journey into Motherhood.


To maximise the opportunity to capture the sleepy curled up baby poses, newborn sessions most commonly take place up to 14 days after the birth.  Older babies tend to be more awake, but we can still achieve great images. Newborn sessions take place in my home studio where there is always plenty of cups of tea and coffee available, along with a biscuit or two!

We are very careful to practice safe posing methods to ensure your baby is safe at all times.  Please read more about baby safety below.

No Rush

We take our time with newborn sessions to ensure that mother and baby are relaxed. Newborn sessions can last up to four hours to give plenty of time for settling your baby, top-up feeds, nappy changes and cuddles. I am also more than happy to take pictures of baby with the parents as well.  We encourage parents to get involved and before your session we advise you on what to expect and what you need to bring with you on the day.


It is never too early to book in your Newborn Photographer Horsham . 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.  You will receive an email around your due date to check that everything is OK then once your infant is born – whether early, late or right on time – please contact me as soon as possible so that we can confirm the session date.

Baby Safety – Newborn Photographer Horsham

Newborn babies are the most precious thing in the world.  Rest assured, during your session the utmost care and attention is taken to ensure your baby’s safety.  Many images you see are composite pictures (an image made up of several pictures) which ensures that your baby is fully supported at all times and is always handled in the safest manner.

When using props, parents are enlisted to help support baby or to be on hand close to the baby as a spotter. We make sure that your little one has the full attention they deserve at all times. The flexibility of each baby varies, and therefore your baby is never forced into a pose that they are not comfortable in, or kept in the same position for too long, and they are never ever left unattended.

As a Newborn Photographer Horsham, Samphire Photography firmly believes in baby-led newborn sessions; their comfort and safety is our highest priority.
