Newborn Info - Edel O'Malley
  • Newborn Info

The first weeks of your babies life are such a precious time! Capturing those precious moments is something that I feel very honoured to be able to do for parents. They don’t stay this size for long so I love getting the chance to capture all their tiny details and cuteness at this tender age.


I have been trained with The Newborn Workshops on safety and posing and I pride myself on always making sure babies safety comes first. I aim to make sure that photo sessions are as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, for both baby and parents. Newborn sessions typically take place when baby is between 5 and 10 days old. For this reason it is advisable to get in contact while you are still pregnant or as soon as possible after.


Newborn packages start at €200, including your session fee. If you would like to know any more information on newborn sessions or pricing, or on having your newborn session in the comfort of your own home get in contact at info@edelomalley.com


When should I book my newborn session?


I always recommend to book your newborn session before baby arrives in order to guarantee availability. Anytime after your 20 week scan is normally plenty of time. I then make a provisional booking based on baby's due date. I only take a limited number of newborn sessions which allows me to keep time available either side of the due date incase baby arrives either early or late. Although I always recommend booking in advance it is always worth calling even if baby has arrived. 

At what stage after baby is born does the session normally take place?


The best time for a newborn session to take place is when baby is between 5 and 10 days old. Although up to two weeks is normally fine. The reason the session takes place at this stage is that this is when baby is most sleepy and flexible to allow them to comfortably move into poses. While baby is asleep it allows me to pose them and photograph them with the least amount of the disruption. Baby's safety and comfort is always the most important aspect of a session to me, so I never move them or pose them in a way that will cause them any discomfort.  


Where does the session take place? 


The session normally takes place in my home studio in Ratoath Co.Meath. However, I do offer the option of having the session take place in the comfort of your own home. I can travel to you, bringing all my props etc and all you need to do is sit back and relax. 


How much should I expect to invest in my photographs?


A newborn session cost €150. You can then choose from my packages or you have the option of building your own package. This allows you to stick to whatever budget you would like and design a package around that. Packages begin at €200 which your session fee goes towards. All sessions include a post shoot consultation to help you choose your images or packages. For a full list of packages email info@edelomalley.com.
