Newborn baby photography

Newborn baby photography

I specialise in newborn photography from birth and beyond, producing stunning and original newborn photos and baby photos. I photograph newborns from as young as 1 day old. Ideally it’s best to book your newborn photography BEFORE the “big day” – I tend to book a date two weeks after your due date, this tentative date can then be moved around as part of the allocated edited time I have in the week.

I’m pretty strict about getting professional newborn photos in those first two weeks as newborn babies are at their sleepiest allowing for more sleeping / calm time. This allows me to pose them slightly easier.


Baby Photographer

Baby Photographer

Babies grow up before our very eyes. I know I’m privileged to be able to capture precious moments of your baby perhaps with you or other family members. Babies are constantly developing, it’s amazing how quick they grow up and how quickly you forget their little stages. I’ll aim to capture some of these key moments – be it early smiles, playing on their first play gym, highchair antics, playing with their hands and feet, rolling, the list is endless.

I’m an experienced, professional Baby Photographer – specialising in relaxed editorial (lifestyle) photography, work on location or in your own home.

From Our Website

My style could be described as Lifestyle or Natural Family photography - capturing authentic moments in your own home or out on locations around Chichester that mean something to you and your family. I work throughout Chichester - we are lucky in Chichester to have a wide range of outdoor space that can be fun for families - any beaches - West Whittering is great, Emsworth can be fun, or nearby Staunton Country Park, or a bit further afield Hayling Island or just anywhere. Almost all of my work is family photography, whether it's a child by themselves painting or a baby at home in a Nursery that Mum and Dad painted, everything is about family.


If you are looking for a Petersfield Family Photographer, you've come to the right place. I live and work in Petersfield in sunny Hampshire, and have worked as a family and baby photographer across Hampshire and Surrey for over 6 years (since 2010) taking lifestyle photos of babies and familes in and around Petersfield, the South Downs and across Hampshire and Surrey. My photographic style is Natural, lifestyle. That means that I'm looking to capture the sort of images that are a bit of real life with a glimpse of personality, a touch of humour, some emotion and cuteness all rolled in.


Experienced, professional Surrey Baby Photographer - Rick Carter specialises in relaxed editorial (lifestyle) photography, Rick work's on location or in your own home. Baby Photography right across Surrey including Godalming, Guildford, Haslemere, Farnham, Esher and Woking and all of the surrounding areas in beautiful Surrey. I want the shoot to be fun (or at least enjoyable) for everyone involved. The shoot is laid-back and normally takes between one and half and two hours. It's very much baby-led.


Almost all of my work is family photography, whether it's a child by themselves painting or a baby at home in a Nursery that Mum and Dad painted, everything is about family. I often find that little groups - shots of you individually with your son or daughter can be more striking, more impactful and tell a greater story than shots of a larger group. When you look back on your family photographs - what one's make your heart sing? Is it those family photographs that capture a moment - sometimes that can all be about an expression, but often a bit of context - your environment, your home, the kid's favourite beach, that teddy bear that little Bobby would never put down - are the things that make a family photograph something that you want to look at again and again.


Working with toddlers and young children is super fun (mostly!). I try and make my child photography sessions as enjoyable for everyone as possible. As a child photographer I want to capture the magic of childhood - something that isn't possible in a studio environment. Instead I work in your home or on location - perhaps somewhere with some special meaning to you all? I tend to like National Trust properties, woods and the seaside. A time when even a box can be the best thing ever. I work hard to try and keep the mood of my child photography sessions light and easy going - I want to be part of the fun, but also unobtrusive.


Whether you need a headshot for casting, gallery bio, social media or for business use - I can help.
