We are delighted to have joined forces with the amazing Jenny McCarthy of PhotosbyJen here at Baby Elegance. Jenny has set up a cozy mini studio in our Dundrum and Blanchardstown stores especially for newborn photo-shoots.

These in store shoot days are an amazing opportunity for you to get some beautiful photographs of your new bundle of joy while they are still so tiny. Jenny’s experience in newborn photography is second to none; there’s no doubt as to why she has been referred to as the ‘Baby Whisperer’ on so many occasions. A newborn photo session with Jenny will leave you with incredible images of your little one to treasure forever.

FAQs

What’s the ideal time to have my newborn photographed?

I like to capture little ones when they are between 5 &10 days old. This is when they are most sleepy and can be easily positioned into the gorgeous poses that you would have seen on my Newborn gallery. However, if your baby is already past this stage, it’s not too late, I photograph babies of all ages up to approx. 1 year.

What should I bring for my baby?

I like to keep things really simple. I encourage parents to bring along a couple of white babygro’s & vests to begin with. But there is nothing more adorable than just your baby’s skin, which is why I photograph them without clothes. There is no fear of baby getting cold as I keep the studio nice and warm so that your baby feels comfortable and cozy. If you have any items that have special or sentimental meanings, such as blankets or teddy bears, please feel free to bring them along.

Can I have my baby photographed with their siblings?

Unfortunately, due to the restricted space in-store, these shoots are just for the babies. I am unable to take photos of the baby with siblings or parents.

How do I receive my photos?

Your printed photos will be available to collect from the same Baby Elegance Store that you had your shoot in. Individual digital images will be sent to you via a download link.
