Newborn Photography with Monka Photography

Newborn photography sessions are best done within the first 2 weeks after the birth. This is when babies are most sleepy and easy to pose. Newborn photography sessions should be booked as early as possible.

All newborn photography sessions take place in my home based studio located in Corran Ard estate in Athy. This cosy space can accommodate families for up to 6 people and is full of beautiful backgrounds, props and outfits for the littlest models.  

Newborn photographs are a wonderful reminder of the first days with your baby and I’d be honoured if you’d choose me to capture those important moments.  ♥

"Monika did a fantastic job with the pictures of our newborn Fionn. He was a little cranky on the day of the shoot and wouldn't sleep!! but Monika was extremely patient with him and the pictures turned out fantastic. Prices are very reasonable for a highly professional and efficient service, I would highly recommend."
