MPA welsh newborn photographer of the year Darren Whiteley

As parents ourselves, we understand that having a baby is one of the most precious times, but one that passes by ever so quickly. Blink, and you’ll miss it!
We love to capture those early days in your babies life, so you can relive these fleeting moments, over and over. We missed our opportunity when our children entered the world, and it’s one of our biggest regrets. Don’t make the same mistake as us!

Are you dreaming of having Newborn photos ?

Bringing a new baby into the world is such a monumental & special time. Those early days are just a fleeting moment, and their tiny details will soon be a thing of the past… We wholeheartedly believe this time is worth celebrating and documenting.

Newborn photography is a once in a lifetime experience

Darren & Rhian create stunning Newborn portraits of your little one; these memories are not only for you… they are also for your little treasures to look back on, in years to come! Ideally, you need to book during pregnancy as our diary fills very quickly, you book in on your due date, once your baby has arrived we confirm your Newborn photo session, this usually takes place within the first 10-14 days.

Don't miss out

Were Darren and Rhian having three children of our own, we regret missing out on have newborn images of our little ones as newborn photo shoots were not available when our children were born. We felt so passionate that we didn’t want other parents to have the same regrets as we have that in 2009 we opened our photography studio. Over the years we have help thousands of parents capturing the innocence of Newborn’s, from their pouty lips to their tiny toes…

Freeze the moment because nothing lasts forever...

When our granddaughters arrived, we made sure we captured their Newborn photos and now a few years on we cannot believe on how quickly the time has passed and we are truly grateful we can look back and cherish those very first few weeks.  

We know the safety of your little one is the highest priority, with this in mind we have educated ourselves and are one of only a few photographers within Wales to have received a certification from the Master Photographers Association for Newborn safety. Darren and Rhian are both highly trained, Darren is an award winning photographer, Whilst Rhian is often referred to as the baby whisperer, getting request from new parents if she can go around to thiers to do the night shift.

Make your house a home

We love looking through photographs together as it is such a precious thing to do, especially as your family continues to grow. As time passes by your beautiful photos become even more precious as they evoke memories and become a doorway to the past.
However, in a world of digital, less and less people are printing their photos. We truly believe in offering printed products, but not at the cost of not having the digital files too… Therefore, whether you choose a Framed Wall Art, Aluminum or a Keepsake box, we will gift you the matching digital files.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

It is advisable to book your session as early in your pregnancy as possible, the majority of our “Mums-to-be” tend to book shortly after their 12-week scan to guarantee their slot in our flexible diary. Newborn photography diary is hard to explain, you book in with your due date, and the session date only gets confirmed once baby has arrived.

The best time for our style is when your Newborn baby is under 14 days old, while they are still super sleepy and in the Newborn curl, however, we have photographed older up to 4 weeks but please note they are more aware, they also start to lose their Newborn curl so posing maybe limited.

This is a very important question, the simple answer is Yes but the photography industry is unregulated, which means anyone can pick up a camera and call themselves a photographer. We are both highly trained in the art of posing baby safely. Darren is one of the most highly qualified photographers throughout the country, holding an Associate with Newborn photography from the MPA (Master Photographers Association) and the SWPP (The Societies of photographers)

Waiting until after you baby has arrived is not advisable, as our diary tends to get booked up months in advance. You are welcome to contact us for availability, and if we can fit you in, we will be more than happy to capture your little one.

Be rest assured we have gone above and beyond any COVID protocols. We have been certified by the MPA, ensuring we are doing everything correctly, the studio is fully equipped with hand sanitizers, we hygienically clean the studio before and after every session. We also provide masks & Gloves if parents wish to use them, we wear masks when handling and posing baby to eliminate the risk.
