Karen Kimmins is best known for her Newborn and baby Photography.
Newborn, baby and maternity photography portraiture in wellington.
Specialising in the art of Newborn Photography.
I am best known as a newborn photographer, offering bespoke newborn sessions as well as newborn mini sessions in Wellington, Somerset. I also photograph maternity, sitters and cake smash and splash sessions.
I love to create simple timeless images, but I also have a passion for bold colour, patterns, flowers and foliage, creating pieces of art to hang proudly in your home, which ever your style may be.

Newborn sessions take place at my home in Wellington, near Taunton.
Sessions begin at 10:30am, Monday to Friday.
THE PERFCT AGE FOR A NEWBORN SHOOT?
It is best to photograph newborns under 2 weeks of age as they are still sleepy and hold those adorable curly, womb-like poses. All babies are different but I find between 7 and 13 days most settled. I do however, photograph newborns up to 6 weeks. Please bear in mind that after 2 weeks babies become more alert making it difficult to get them into the deep sleep needed to create the images you see on my website. They are also far less curly and won't fit into a lot of my props!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?
It is advisable to book as soon as you can during your pregnancy. I will pre-book 7 days after your due date and then we will rearrange once your baby arrives.
HOW LONG ARE THE NEWBORN SESSIONS?
I like the sessions to be relaxed and baby-led so please allow between 3 & 4 hours. This gives lots of time for feeding and comforting and several varied set-ups of your choice. I do also offer Newborn mini sessions which last for one hour only.
SAFE NEWBORN PRACTICE
Your little one will always be treated with the highest level of care. The room I work in will be very warm and there will be lots of time for feeding and cuddles. I do not use props or poses that would put your baby at risk and I will always pose your baby with the utmost care. Your precious little bundle's safety and well-being is my absolute number one priority throughout.
I belong to a worldwide organisation that exists to support newborn photographers and to have access to safety training and resources so that I can provide you with a safe and better service.
As a sign of my commitment to this genre of photography, I hope it reassures you that I have also undergone 1-2-1 training with one of the U.K's top award winning newborn photographers and completed many online training courses in safety and posing.
Wrinkled skin and wispy hair, delicate fingers, teeny tiny toes, pouty lips with a cute button nose!
Your newborn baby changes so much in the first few weeks of life, that we often forget all those new tiny details.
My passion is to deliver to you, beautiful bespoke images, to preserve these precious memories forever.
