Award Winning Newborn Photography, Newport, SE Wales
Captured Magic Photography do not charge a session fee and it is entirely FREE to attend a session and have pictures taken.
You are at no time under any obligation to purchase any of your images from your session, however, if you love what you see and would like to purchase just a few prints or images rather than one of the collections, there is a minimum spend of £299.
This is due to the amount of time in processing, design and development invested in your session and images to create your gallery.
A £99 non refundable retainer is required in order to secure your booking.
This will be deducted from your final order at your viewing appointment.
Newborn babies best to photograph in the first two weeks of their life, preferably between 5 and 10 days. Why so early? Because at this age they sleep deeper, don't really mind being unclothed, and are still flexible enough to curl up in those cute little poses how they used to sleep in mummy's tummy. However, if your baby is a little older than that it's still fine and absolutely doable, but poses might be limited.
Photographing a baby takes time. A newborn session can take up to 4 hours (especially with "older" babies), but it's all worth it if you want to get the most amazing pictures of your little one.
My sessions are completely baby led. Some babies prefer things one way, some prefer things a different way, and because of that no two shoots are ever the same. I only book one session a day to ensure we are not rushed and gives us plenty of time for baby to feed and settle and also means I get to sneak in a few cuddles along the way too!
Most people book in after their 12 week scan- this is to ensure you don't miss out as I take only a limited amount of newborn bookings each month.
I can, on occasion however squeeze in last minute bookings so if your baby has arrived or is close to arriving please do get in contact and I may be able to fit you in!

CAN WE BE INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOS AS WELL?
ABSOLUTELY! I know not everyone (including me) feel comfortable to step in front of the camera only a few days after giving birth, but those early days pass by in a blink of an eye and it will be great to look back later on how tiny they were in your hands!
Your partner and siblings are welcome and encouraged to join too.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You don't really need to bring anything, i have a large selection of props for both boys and girls.
You might want to bring spare change of clothes for yourself, just in case if there's an accident :)
WERE IS THE SESSION HELD?
Newborn sessions take place in my studio in Newport, only about 3 minutes drive from the M4.
There is parking directly outside which is handy, and usually plenty of spaces off street.
I also have tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits ;)
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?
About two weeks after your session, you will be invited back for your viewing appointment where your beautiful images will be presented.
This is your ordering appointment, and we recommend that all decision makers are present at this session. Most of our clients treasure beautiful wall art in their homes, so it might be a good idea that you try and think about where and how would you like to see your artwork displayed.
