Your newborn baby is one of the greatest gifts you’ll ever have. They will never look this new or this tiny again and without images you will forget all their delicate details, their little rolls, fluffy hair & wrinkly toes. As an award winning photographer I've helped hundreds of families capture their memories and I can't wait create your timeless portraits that will last generations.
I cannot stress this enough, the perfection that this professional makes is second to none. I’m a anxious mummy as I’ve had a poorly baby but seeing just a taste of the material this artist creates has made me cry happy tears after a very hard week since my son was born. Jemma works for hours to get the perfect shot and even invited us back to finish our shoot as she picked up on my anxiety and realised we needed to relax. What an amazing lady and amazing photographer I would highly recommend Jemma slater photography.
One word for Jemma’s photos...AMAZING! It’s safe to safe Wilfred was being very difficult on the day of our shoot, and wasn’t playing ball, but Jemma had so much patience and made us feel so comfortable in her studio, that the end results are truly incredible. The photos were edited and back to us so quickly and we were blown away with the quality of them that we couldn’t choose a few, we just had to have all of them!
My partner and I today viewed our photo gallery, I don’t have the superlatives to describe Jemma’s work, they are simply incredible, within seconds of viewing the pictures my girlfriend was in floods of tears of joy. Never have I seen such dedication to her work. Having our daughter is was the greatest thing to happen to us, but Jemma’s work is the cherry on the cake
All sessions take place in my beautiful studio in Brockhampton, Herefordshire. There is plenty of free parking and I provide tea, coffee, cold drinks and even biscuits!
Newborn sessions are completely baby led. Each baby is completely unique and it's important I go at their pace so prepare for the session to last around 4 hours. This includes feeding, settling and changing time. I only book one newborn in a day which means nothing is rushed. This approach means we can get the best possible images in the most relaxed way.
I advise to book in after your 20 week scan. Even though I can sometimes accept late bookings, I am often fully booked a few months in advance.
I will provisionally book you in for due date, however, when your baby is born we will firm up a date at that point, usually for when your baby is between 4 and 14 days old. This is when they are still squishy and easier to work with. Understanding the unpredictable nature of a baby's arrival, I only accept a certain amount of babies per month so there will always be room to fit you in whenever your baby arrives.
After your session I will process and professionally hand re-touch your images to the highest standards. You will then be invited back to your viewing and ordering appointment where you will be able to select your chosen products. My catalogue of products is extensive and available for every budget.
I would love to work with you and your family and if you would like to enquire about available dates or discuss any details please contact me via the form below. Please include your telephone number as sometimes my emails don't get to the right place. Jemma x
