NEWBORN SESSIONS - £150.00 (£50.00 DEPOSIT)
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
You can book anytime after your 12 week scan, simply use our booking form to input your due date. Don't worry, we know babies come when they're ready, so by giving us your due date we will be prepared for your imminent arrival and make sure we are available. Just let us know when your home and settled and we will fix the time and date. These sessions work best when baby is between 5 and 14 days, so we'll aim for that when arranging a session.
We can sometimes fit in sessions at short notice, so it's worth contacting us in case we've had a cancellation.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
This session takes between 2 and 3 hours. This is to allow for as many feeds, nappy changes and cuddles as needed.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Bring all your baby bits, like your changing bag, milk and a change of clothes etc for baby. I do have a small selection of props and blankets, but definitely bring some of your own to make you photos extra special.
You might like to think about bringing some of the following;
- Props, maybe a special teddy, and a couple of toys you like.
- A few baby outfits that you love, including a plain baby grow and short sleeved vest.
- Some of baby's blankets.
- A special item you would like baby photographed with. This could be a guitar, piece of jewellery, item of uniform (e.g if parent is in armed forces), just to give you some examples of what we have seen before. Do let us know if you are bringing an item like this so we can prepare.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A black vest/tank top is perfect for these photos and works really well. You're best off not having any logos, so just plain black for parents. Cream also works and is lovely for a sibling shot. Feel free to wear jeans as the portraits I take of you all together are from the waist up and you'll want to be comfy! As we are doing close ups, you may just want to check your nails are neat and tidy and bring a bit of make up if you feel you need to touch up.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
If you come to our studio, it will be set up before you arrive and once you're all settled we'll begin taking photos of your little bundle. After we've done the close up shots and swaddle shots and dress up shots and any others, we'll take some photos of you with your little one and any siblings. We work around baby, so whenever they need feeding or comforting, we'll stop. We also have a private area for breastfeeding if you prefer.
Once I'm confident we have enough photos you're free to go and I'll get to work on editing.
WHAT IF MY BABY WON'T SETTLE?
Please don't worry about this! I am a mum myself and have lots of experience with crying babies and settling them, so we'll make sure baby is nice and calm (and fed!) before we start. Newborn safety is paramount to us and we'll never put your baby in any position that could possibly harm them.
WHEN WILL MY PHOTOS BE READY?
Your 20 edited images will be ready in approx. 2 weeks and the USB memory stick will be posted to you.
