OMG! I am so excited! The results of the RISE International Photography Awards were announced today and seven of my eight entries received a BRONZE award! 

This particular photography competition means so much for a number of reasons - not least the calibre of the judging panel. The judges are some of the best and most reknowned photographers in the world, so to receive positive comments from them really means a lot! 

And so to the images....

Starting a new school - mini-photo sessions with Babies By Jackie, Yorkshire

BRAND NEW FOR 2019!

The first day starting at a new school can be quite stressful, emotionally charged and quite chaotic.

First day photos are often taken in a rush as you dash out the door, with no time to think about lighting, composition or even if your child is smiling! My Starting School mini-sessions take place a week or so before school starts, while uniforms are new and unscuffed, in my lovely calm studio in Market Weighton. And my personalised 'chalkboard' images make a stunning keepsake.

I get a lot of people asking when they should book their newborn photo session, and my answer is always the same: before baby arrives and the sooner the better! The ideal time to confirm your booking is towards the end of the second trimester, when you have had most of your scans and you have a reasonably accurate due date.

“But what if my baby arrives early or late?”

Don’t worry, it happens all the time!

When you book your newborn photo session, the exact date is only provisional. It lets me balance my workload so I can guarantee your baby’s photo session will happen within 3-18 days of their arrival.

I block out an entire day for each newborn as it can take 3-5 hours depending on how quickly and deeply baby settles. I never rush a session as I want to give you the best images possible whilst taking the utmost care with your new arrival.

“I prefer to wait until my baby is born” or “My baby is already here; is it too late?”

The ideal window for photographing a newborn is in the first 3 weeks. After this time, babies become more alert, restless and less willing to settle in some of the newborn poses.

While I will always do my best to squeeze a client in, unless a booking is made in advance I cannot promise I will be able to photograph your newborn baby within the ideal window. This may mean the variety of images we can obtain is reduced or at busy times I may be unable to fit you in at all!

If that happens, it is often better to wait and book one of our older baby ‘milestone’ sessions instead.

The moral of this story: Book your session as soon as you have your confirmed due date!
