With a baby born during lockdown primetime I was unable to have a newborn photoshoot for our little girl. I have swooned over beautiful photos of angelic babies and wish we could have booked one of these fantastic photographers to capture those early moments for us. To prevent others missing out on this precious opportunity I have compiled a list of the very best newborn photographers in South Wales. These photographers are in high demand so it’s advisable to book as early as your 12 week scan to secure an appointment!
