RELAX & BE COMFORTABLE

I love photographing newborns. The first few days with your new baby are truly precious, unique memories to be treasured, and to be able to capture that time is a real privilege. It is also important to me to take care of our new mums (and dads!) and so I like to make your experience simple and enjoyable from start to finish.

I will come to your home for your newborn photo shoot, so everything you might need is right at hand. I will bring everything I need with me: props, blankets, accessories, wipes – all you need to provide is the baby! 

HOW LONG DOES THE PHOTO SESSION TAKE?

I always allocate 3-5 hours for a newborn photo session, and only book one appointment in a day, to allow ample opportunity for nappy changes, feeding and comforting, and to allow baby to settle into a nice deep sleep. The photographs themselves usually take around 40-60 minutes, but sometimes it can take a while to settle your baby. You cannot rush newborns! I recommend that you don’t plan anything else in for the day of the photo shoot, so you can relax and enjoy the experience without needing to keep one eye on the clock.

CAN WE HAVE SOME PHOTOS WITH PARENTS/SIBLINGS?

Of course! I always like to include a couple of photos with parents and any siblings in my newborn sessions.

Portraits with mum and dad are a beautiful reminder of this magical time. I especially love skin-to-skin images to highlight the bond between baby and parents.

If you have other children, I usually photograph them with baby at the start of the session while they are still interested in the new person in their home. For younger children, who may be easily distracted or unable to safely hold a newborn, I often create 'composite' photos from images of the baby and child taken separately. 

WHAT ABOUT PETS?

Your pets are of course part of the family, however, during the session it is often better to keep them out of the room. If you want a photo with your well-behaved pet included, please let me know and we can discuss options. For safety reasons, I almost always use composite images for photos with animals.

FOLLOWING YOUR SESSION

I know you will be eager to see the images from your session, so I usually post a sneak peek on our Facebook page within a week of the shoot (or I can email it to you if you don't use Facebook).

We will arrange your viewing appointment for approximately two weeks after your session, and I will bring along some of our stunning sample products with me. I have a range of beautiful printed products including framed prints, bamboo panels, mounted prints, treasure boxes and albums. 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY APPOINTMENT?

In order to offer my clients the best service possible, I book a strictly limited number of newborn photo sessions per week. To avoid disappointment it is best to reserve your date as early as possible. Most people book just after the 20 week scan, but you can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me your estimated due date.

The ideal age for newborn photos is between 5 and 14 days. For the first two weeks babies are still used to being curled up snugly in the womb, and find the cosy, comfortable poses I use second-nature. We will schedule a provisional booking for around 8-10 days after your due date, and confirm or reschedule as necessary.

How Much Does It Cost?

The session fee is £125, which includes the photo session and one of our beautiful welcome packs, including a hand-made keepsake teddy. These teddies are definitely not camera-shy and can often be caught sneaking into some of our photos during the session. And of course, this would make a beautiful gift for a baby shower or maternity present.

I have a range of beautiful products including framed prints, bamboo panels, mounted prints, treasure boxes and albums and digital image packages. For a copy of my full price list, please email me or text 'Newborn' to 0779 598 1540 and I will call you back to talk about your due date, and booking details.

Of course, if there is something that you would like that is not listed, please do ask.

DO YOU OFFER GIFT VOUCHERS?

A newborn baby photo session makes the perfect gift for a leaving present for an expectant mum or for a baby shower, and our gorgeous welcome pack is a beautiful gift. Alternatively, I am happy to offer gift vouchers in any amount over £20 that can be put towards any of our products. Please drop me an email with your individual request.
