Julia Taylor Photography specialises in newborn photography, capturing those precious little details and special memories for you to cherish forever. Julia is a mobile photographer and will come to your home to take your newborns first images. The best time to conduct a newborn shoot is when your baby is between 2 – 12 days old. This is because they sleep more soundly and curl up more easily into adorable “womb like” poses. Once your newborn reaches 14 days and above (sometimes earlier), he or she will be much more alert and wriggly, and it becomes slightly more difficult to get those posed type shots, but at this stage I can capture some beautiful wide awake images of your newborn instead. Please take a look at my website for more information about me:
