Session Information

Maternity Photography - Kayleigh Ashworth PhotographyWhen to book your session…

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are between 6-10 day new, after 10 days babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, we will then make a tentative booking during your consultation and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.

Maternity sessions are best between 28-35 weeks gestation. after that time moms can experience swelling and discomfort holding poses.

Baby sessions are best when your baby has hit their special milestones; tummy time, sitting up and standing.


Where your session is held…

Sessions take place in my Murrieta studio located within New Life Ultrasound.


How long will your session take…

Newborn sessions can take 2-4 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting.



Two weeks after your session you’ll come back to the studio where you’ll be presented with a personalized viewing of your final fully edited images to purchase from. Your digital files will be ready to take home with you the day of your viewing.


The best way to contact me…
