Newborn photography is my specialism here at Pennycress. With over 13 years experience photographing over 1200 newborns and a classic, timeless style, Pennycress is the number one choice for discerning customers seeking natural newborn photography sessions from Norwich, Norfolk, North Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

All my sessions include parent and baby images at the heart of the session, it is important to me to capture your love and bond as a new family.

My aim is to provide gorgeous images of you and your new baby to cherish forever.





We could not recommend Vicki enough, she was so kind & patient and managed to capture the most beautiful photos of our newborn that everybody compliments (and we are obsessed with!). She went above & beyond to make sure we had enough pictures in our package that we were happy with. She is so very talented and we could never thank her enough. The best money you could spend, babies change so quickly and those beautiful pictures are priceless! X



With over 13 years experience photographing newborns, Vicki at Pennycress is the perfect choice for your Newborn session. That is over 1200 babies photographed! She is also one of the leading UK providers of Newborn Photography training and has trained photographers from all over the world, so your little one is in experienced hands.

With a lovely relaxed atmosphere, everything is baby led and full newborn sessions can include a variety of images including those of baby sleeping, relaxed natural images, those with the new parents and any siblings are welcome too.

New baby mini sessions are perfect for babies up to around 6 months old.

You should pre-book as far in advance as possible, ideally right after your 12 week scan as these sessions do fill up quickly. I have only 1 newborn space per week.


I am a firm believer in fair, upfront and honest pricing, there will be no hidden costs and no hard selling, ever, I promise. The prices you see here are the total you will pay. Any upgrades are your choice and are listed here too.

I have a few Newborn Options for you to choose from…


Suitable for newborns aged up to 5 weeks and families with siblings.

This is a  traditional full 3-hour newborn session with multiple poses of baby, parents and siblings.

Full newborn sessions also come with a guarantee. If for any reason we do not get a good full gallery due to baby being unsettled we will book you in to try again another day.

You have 2 options…

Option A – 10 Digital files of your choice from the new baby session.

PLUS A 2nd session at 5-9 months once baby is sitting up including 5 digital files of your choice from this 2nd session.

Option to upgrade to all digital files from your newborn session for an additional £50

Option B – All your images as digital files from the session.




A chance to capture those early days but on a budget.

This is a short 1 hour session, suitable for babies up to sitting up age.

A smaller number of poses and images than the full session, with a gallery of up to 25 images, some parent images included but not suitable for young siblings or twins due to time constraints.

Includes 10 digital images of your choice from your gallery.

Option to upgrade to all digital files for £50.






I have had 3 photo shoots with Pennycress Photography and each one has been brilliant. Vicki got some beautiful shots of all my children. A lovely calm lady who has the patience of a saint!


When should I book my newborn session?

You should pre-book as far in advance as possible, ideally right after your 12 week scan as these sessions do fill up quickly. I have only 1 newborn space per week.

When do we pay?

Your session fee is payable in full at the time of booking and is used as a non-refundable deposit to hold your session date.

What do we need to bring?

You will need to bring enough feeds for little one to cover the 3-4 hours that full newborn sessions can sometimes take. Also the usual changing bag and related bits and bobs.

What will happen at the session?

When you arrive, if you have not already done so then I will ask you to feed baby after undressing them and wrapping them in a snuggley blanket.  It can really help if you have time, to give baby a bath in the morning before your session, this can make them lovely and sleepy later at their session. If you live within 30 mins of the studio please feed baby before you leave home.

If you could dress them in a simple white short-sleeved vest (with other clothes on top if needed for the weather!)  This means we don’t need to wake them by pulling vest etc over their heads, The combination of full tummy and being comfy and warm should make them nice and sleepy. Of course this isn’t all always possible and we don’t want an upset baby so do what is best for them at the time, even with an awake baby we can get a lot of wonderful images for you. With my authentic relaxed style we do not need baby to be in a deep sleep for posing.

At all my sessions I include the parents and any siblings too, for me, the thing that makes images so special is showing the love and connection with your new little one.

Sessions then run very differently every time as it all depends on your little one, what they are comfortable with. I only book one session per day but due to the unpredictable nature of babies I cannot guarantee and particular pose or image will be achieved.

What should we wear?

For all baby sessions please dress baby in a simple short-sleeved white vest. For some shots, they may be naked but rest assured I am very used to lots of little accidents so don’t worry if they wee or poop with a nappy off,  I always shoot sensitively with private areas covered.

I adore capturing images of the parents and any siblings with baby, as I mention above, for me, it is connection and loving bonds that make the best images,  so please wear plain and simple clothing and be prepared to be in the images!  White, cream, pastel or light grey tops work well with my style or I have a couple of tops you may borrow. Dads often choose to go topless which makes for some wonderful images too, if not please could they bring a white or pale t-shirt. I do have one here at the studio just in case though!

Please avoid collared shirts for baby or Daddy, also no big patterns, checks or pictures on tops please.

Think about your nails for those close-up shots of baby gripping your fingers and their feet in your hands etc, a nice natural clean nail is perfect! Also, just a note that fake tan and face highlighters can look funny on images so you may want to avoid putting those on for the session.
Finally, you might want to bring a spare change of clothes just in case you get caught by one of the aforementioned little accidents!
The studio space gets very warm so you may want to also be prepared and wear layers even in wintertime.

Can my other children be involved in the session?

Siblings are very welcome, their relationship with baby makes for some wonderful images. It can be useful if you bring some small treat snacks which we can use as “encouragement” in the shoot if needed. The sessions may also be quite long so bringing something for them to do in between their shots can help too.

What do I do now?

Please add me to the list of people the tell that little one has arrived.  If they have arrived early or late then we will may need to amend the provisional session date you have booked to ensure we fit you in as soon as possible.
