Essex Photography Studio

Newborn photography is like no other.

It’s a specialised industry and requires invested training sessions which I’m proud to have taken countless times over the years to make sure your baby is not only in safe hands, but hands that create portraits to last forever.

The main focus of the session is your baby.

I have a beautiful variety of timeless props in my home studio, mainly wooden that can be used in all sorts of sessions leading from newborn and as they grow older and return.

Knowing the decor of your home is so important for us to create a gallery that will sit beautifully on the walls of your home.

Please note that Dinky Days Photography is open and taking sessions only on weekdays from 10am to 2:30pm. 



I have been following Dinky Days on Facebook for many years and always loved and admired her amazingly creative photography. When I fell pregnant with my second baby I instantly knew I wanted to book a session with Aimee-Jo to have some timeless, classic photographic memories of my beautiful children to cherish for years to come.
Aimee-Jo was soo welcoming and great with my daughter (who was worried she may get bored). Aimee-Jo is so patient, kind and outgoing she was chatting away to my daughter whilst I tried to settle my baby. She made us all feel at ease and welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and she didn’t rush us at all. My son was very unsettled this day and I didn’t feel under pressure to hurry up.
She is utterly talented and it was a pleasure to have a photo session. Thank You x


My newborn sessions are £99

Your images will be edited to my highest standards before being selected for your gallery, a process that takes approximately 10 days. Once your images are ready for you, you’ll be invited back for your exclusive viewing session where you will be able to view your images, see my range of products, and choose which images and products you would like to purchase. All purchases are to be made at this time, and the session fee does not include any products or images.

Dinky Days is closed on weekends aside from chosen dates for seasonal mini sessions. 
With school aged children coming along for newborn sessions with their sibling(s), my clients normally take the child(ren) out of school for a couple of hours or the full day so as to join in those all important portraits.

We absolutely loved our experience with Aimee – from the first contact over the phone right through to viewing the photographs after the shoot. We arrived on the day with our 3 year old and 9 week old and were immediately made welcome and super comfortable. The kids loved her – her way with them is lovely and she also managed to get our baby to sleep. At no point were we rushed. As you can imagine, with the little ones, we needed lots of breaks to feed, visits to the loo and generally a change focus to keep the kids interested. Aimee rolled with it all and made it clear that the children came first. This is what in part creates the wonderfully relaxed environment which results in beautiful pictures. Aimee is magic! We couldn’t be happier with the results from the shoot and can’t wait to get them up on our walls. Memories for life and we can’t wait to be back again to capture more.

When will we book my session?

I aim for your session to be within 2 weeks of birth. Of course if this is after due to medical problems or similar, don’t worry.

Newborns tend to be most sleepy at this time. 

If this time goes over, I like to advise you on how baby may be more awake and may not be able to be put into the poses. However don’t fret, your gallery will always be beautiful. There are many poses we can do to show off their perfect little selves. 

How long will the session be?

Around 2-3 hours depending on your baby. If they’re super sleepy, its on the shorter side, but if they need extra feeding, burping etc then we will simply take more time.
I wont rush your baby so please don’t have anything planned for directly after your session as we can possibly go over time.

When will my images be ready?

Your images are hand edited to the highest standard, this process takes around 7-10 days, at which point you will be invited back for a viewing where you will choose what you’ve like to purchase. 
Payment is made on this day. 

Do I have to buy a package?
If you’d rather purchase wall art without a package, this is an option.

My minimum spend is £399 and I have many options for you.

Is the session fee included in the package?

Yes, your session fee will be deducted from the balance of any package chosen.
