The ideal time to book your Maternity photography experience is when you have just had your booking meeting with the midwife if you are wanting to reveal your pregnancy. if you would like to reveal your babies gender, please book before your 20-week scan date. If you are just wanting to celebrate your pregnancy and have photos done of your bump to celebrate your pregnancy aim to book for your third trimester around 32-36 weeks. 

The ideal time to book your Newborn photography experience for the Posed newborn photos is when you are in your third trimester so Victoria can pencil in your due date and save some slots for you, because Victoria will need to photograph your newborn within the first 3 to 28 days of their life as they are very flexible and sleepy for the curly posed images.

If your baby is older than 28 days old the best time to book your baby in for photos is either when they are 3/4 months old or when they are able to sit up confidently.

The best time to book your babies milestones pictures when they are able to sit up confidently and ideally before they are able to walk. 

Book in at least a month in advance to your preferred date to ensure availability. 

Your experience fee is due at booking, this is payable online via Paypal or Bacs and in person in cash at your consultation or on Card. Creative fee begins from £49, please inquire for more information.

“ Victoria has photographed my son twice and both times I've been blown away by the quality of her work. Not only does she produce beautiful photos but she also manages to capture his personality and his cheekiness. She's a lovely woman to work with, with endless patience and a great manner. Would highly recommend her :) “

Chelsea H (2017)

“Victoria is a very professional and talented photographer. We have shot together in the past and produced great photos but she has worked hard and tirelessly to continue to grow and improve on her work. We have known each other for a long time but she maintained a high standard of professionalism throughout our recent family shoot. She is super friendly and fantastic with children. I cannot recommend Victoria highly enough! “

"Victoria was great with my toddler son, who was very uncooperative and yet still managed to get some great shots. Victoria's prints/packages are reasonably priced too. I look forward to some future sessions with Victoria!"

Angela K (2011)

" Victoria has a creative passion when it comes to photography. She is dedicated and professional which is exercised with the photo shoots which she organizes to the last fine detail. I have worked with her once as a model and worked with her in uni and all times I have enjoyed it. I hope to work with her very soon. xxxx" 

Ruth F (2017)

"I've never been comfortable having my picture taken, as I have a facial deformity, and also find it difficult to smile on demand, but I needed a professional headshot taken, and Nocternal Artist Photography was recommended to me. I'm so glad I chose her! :) She even found me an excellent make-up artist, who understood what I wanted and made it happen. Both of them put me completely at my ease throughout. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable. What might have been a tense ordeal for me turned out to be a pleasant and relaxed experience. :)

Victoria is an excellent photographer, and knows how to show her subjects to best effect. I'm delighted, both with the experience and with the finished result! :) Very highly recommended! :) :) :) "

"My daughters won the recent competition. The whole experience for my children was brilliant, they really enjoyed it. A relaxed friendly atmosphere that made my children feel at ease instantly. I also had to take along my 15 month old boy due to no childcare. He was made to feel very welcome and was entertained by lots of toys. He kept wandering through to the studio room... He wasn't asked to leave, in fact he was encouraged to sit down and had a few shots taken as well. Highly recommended. Brilliant family photographer. Thank you"
