"Kerry was amazing with our little girl, a true baby whisperer! Her photos are just lovely, we couldn’t have imagined anything more perfect!"

“AMAZING! I wish we had asked Kerry to complete our first born photo shoot!"

“I had my baby daughter’s pictures taken by Kerry and they are gorgeous, Kerry is lovely and really makes everyone feel comfortable. I couldn’t recommend her enough!”

Award Winning Peterborough Baby Photographer

Congratulations on your exciting news and thank you for your interest in Kerry Unwin Photography.

Newborn photo sessions are all about capturing those precious early days and as a award winning, fully trained and insured newborn photographer I’ve captured hundreds of memories for parents over the years that they will treasure forever.

Your session

All of my sessions include parent (and sibling) images if you would like them. It is all about your precious newborn baby so if you don’t want to look at the camera that’s absolutely fine, I totally get that (I wouldn’t either ha!) I know that you will be feeling tired and that you’ve just been through childbirth so I have plenty of different family poses to make sure that you will treasure these memories later, seeing how little your newborn was in your arms once upon a time (and I’m happy to remove any laughter lines or smooth down whatever you would like me to as well).

If you have any older siblings, please don’t worry about whether your toddler will co-operate, I’m very experienced working with babies and toddlers so will go entirely at their pace until they’re happy to have their photo taken. I want you to have family images that you will love forever.

Check out my maternity/pregnancy bump sessions if you would like to capture this special moment before your baby arrives.



“AMAZING! I wish we had asked Kerry to complete our first born photo shoot. Not only is Kerry incredibly talented, she instantly put the whole family at ease – including the 2 year old! The shoot was relaxed and there was certainly no pressure on time: it was all about the toddler and baby feeling relaxed. When presented with the final images, I was moved to tears. Kerry had captured the most special moments of our beautiful family. I am looking forward to visiting Kerry again to and record more family memories. Thank you x”



As you can see from my portfolio, I like to keep everything quite neutral as I believe it’s all about your baby rather than lots of props but I do use some little touches if you would like them. I have various wraps, hats and headbands etc for you to choose from if you would like or we can keep it totally simple, it’s completely up to you. If you have something in mind or would like to include something of sentimental value then please let me know and we can discuss ideas.

After your session, I professionally hand edit your beautiful gallery of around 20 images. Approximately 3 weeks later you will be invited back to a viewing session where you will be able to choose your collection and any additional wall art or printed products you would like.

The session fee for my newborn sessions is £75. Packages start from £299.

Please contact me for more information and to reserve a session.

“INCREDIBLE! I cannot recommend Kerry enough. Our experience was amazing from start to finish. She took the time before our newborn shoot to ask what type of photos we wanted and really put us at ease with how unpredictable a day in the life of a newborn can be with timings etc. Kerry’s attention to detail is second to none and we loved watching her carefully place everything to get the perfect picture. She also introduced our daughter to white noise, which is still saving the day and making her sleep now! Viewing the photos with Kerry was a very special moment and the contact with updates about our printed package was brilliant. The moments Kerry captured we will treasure forever and we cannot wait to return for Ottilie’s sitter session.”



When should I book my newborn session?

Most people reserve their newborn photography session with me as soon as they have had their 12 week scan as I only reserve 8 newborn sessions a month to ensure that I have availability in case babies are early or late.

Don’t panic if you’ve already had your baby though, I do sometimes have last minute availability as my booked babies rarely come close to their due dates so please get in touch and we will find the first available session for you.


It is normally best for newborn sessions to take place up to approximately 4 weeks after birth as your baby will be sleepier and more likely to be posed into those curled up newborn images that you will have seen. Once you have reserved your session then all you need to do is let me know when your little one arrives and we will confirm the date and details.


Newborn sessions can take up to 4 hours so I only book in one newborn baby photography session per day and I will go entirely at your little one’s pace and allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and settling.

As a mum of two, I remember those crazy few weeks very well so I want you to relax whilst I work with your precious new arrival and ensure we get plenty of beautiful portraits for you, preserving all of those precious little details forever.


I have years of experience of settling little ones and the session will be entirely baby led to make sure your baby is happy. There is never any rush and we will make sure your little one is fed and comfortable. I have lots of little techniques to settle your baby if needed so please don’t worry.


Nope, I have various wraps, hats and headbands we can use if you like them or we can keep it totally natural. It’s your baby and your photos so your call. Just bring nappies and milk and I’ll get the kettle on so you can have a well deserved rest 🙂


All of my wall art products are sourced and hand crafted in the UK, I have several examples hanging in my studio so can help you find stunning wall art that you will love forever.


The importance of wall art

I believe that your family and children’s images should be proudly displayed in your homes. It has been proven that children who grow up in homes where their photos are on show, grown up to be more confident. All of my clients who choose to have wall art always comment that their little ones love seeing the photos of them as a baby and regularly smile and point out their baby photos to guests.

Print products and wall art are purchased in addition to digital packages. However, should you wish to order prints or wall art rather than a package then due to the time involved in processing, ordering and printing etc there is a minimum order amount of £299.
