Mini Newborn Session Package
This photo-shoot is best suited for babies between 5 days and 3 weeks old. If your baby is older please contact me to see your available options.
Thank you so much for your interest in a 'Mini' Samantha Paige newborn session. This package is designed to be a more affordable option at £120 - details below.
This session / package includes one family image (Silhouette Style) and a choice of 3 styled set ups.
Your baby for the duration on this session is swaddled and no beanbag drops/'squishy' poses are carried out.
Outfits are also not used.
You can choose 3 set ups from the designs below.
Each of these designs can be slightly adapted to suit your style, for example colours of wrap/swaddle are your choice and you're welcome to bring an item or two to add a personal touch. All of this will be discussed and decided with yourselves prior to your session.
If you're more interested in un-swaddled poses for your session or would like to have sibling photos - I would recommend looking at my Bronze Newborn Package.
After your session and once your beautiful images are ready, you are either welcome back to my studio to view your images. Or I can create for you an online gallery to view your images.*
At this point you’re welcome to select the images you’d like as part of your package, purchase any additional images and decide if you would like to purchase any wall art or albums.
Any questions please drop me a message.

All of your chosen images are printed onto the best quality paper & your digital images are delivered as high resolution files. The digital file collections all include printing rights.
I understand the ease and flexibility of buying the digital files, but don’t let your images sit on a hard drive. The beautiful images we are going to create deserve to be displayed using only the best quality products.

FAQ's For My Mini Newborn Session
Are Family Included in the Photos?
For my mini package I only offer a silhouette shot. This is to include the immediate family and does not include separate sibling photos.
Even if you're not feeling your best this is a beautiful imitate shot that focuses on the love and connection between you and you're new baby - without having too much of parental details in shot.
Please note that extended family are not included but can be booked via a separate session.
What happens if my baby won't settle/sleep?
This is a very common worry amongst all of my newborn parents.
Firstly there is no rush during our session. Swaddling is a traditional practice of wrapping a baby up gently in a light, breathable blanket to help them feel calm and sleepy. The swaddle acts by helping your little one feel snug and secure, just like in your womb.
We may have to stop for feeds, bum changing or maybe just a mummy cuddle., and thats ok! I know that every newborn session is different and if baby really wont sleep we will make it work best we can - capturing those beautiful eyes awake or the odd smile. But if there really is a struggle, I can always invite you back another time to retry.
In all my years of working with newborns I have never had to invite someone back - patience and understanding are key.
Do you offer newborn session's on the weekend?
The answer to this is no.
With newborn sessions I give you a 'floating' date based on your due date. If your little one is early or late I'm happy to adjust your date to suit. I leave additional weekdays free to accommodate for this as weekends tend to be booked with other shoot styles.
This is why it is also helpful to book your session during your maternity/paternity leave if you would like family shots. But not to worry, if your partner cannot make the session and you're wanting a family portrait I can always invite you back when they're able to join.
Do we have to bring anything for our photos?
For my full newborn sessions all my props, backdrops, outfits and headwear is provided. These are hand selected and decided by you in a pre-session consultation. During the consultation I work with you to create a theme/style for the session so the final images are what you're dreaming of.
Of course if you have something personal or an idea you'd love to include please et me know and I'd happily make it part of the images.
Please note for my wrapped mini sessions only the pre-set up backdrop/set/prop is used.
