how we work
Your new bundle of joy will only be tiny for a short period of time so now is the perfect time to capture their dinky little fingers and toes to treasure forever!
Newborn portraits are best captured between the 5th and 14th day of your babies life. This is because at this time babies are still very sleepy and have that womb like behaviour still present. This doesn't limit us to that age, it just means we are more likely to get those cute sleepy poses.
It is best to prebook your newborn session while pregnant to make sure we have a slot available during the first 2 weeks after birth. We recommend that you book your session around your 12 week scan to avoid any disappointment.
We welcome both parents and siblings to join in during these precious sessions. We also encourage you to bring along any personalised teddies and blankets to make your photos extra special!
You will have full use of our beautiful newborn outfits, props and equipment.
We never rush our tiny clients, our newborn sessions are completely baby led which means each session can last anywhere between one hour up to 4 hours. We ask that you aim to feed your baby upon arrival and to bring a couple of extra feeds and their dummy if they have one.
As a newborn photographer my main priority during your session is your child's safety. Some times you may be asked to be my "spotter"- this will require you to sit close to your little one while I take a step back to capture the shot. Newborns have a startle reflex, they can seem fast asleep but it only takes second for them to startle and throw their arms up.
Please be aware that some newborns do not like all poses. Each baby is different and sometimes it can be due to how they lay in your uterus, whether they have wind or just how sleepy they are that day. I work with each baby uniquely, by reading their cues I can ensure they're comfortable and safe.
To help me plan your session, we will talk about what images you love and why prior to your session.
All sessions require a £50.00 non refundable booking fee to secure your session which will be deducted from the price. The remaining amount owed is due the day before your session.
Each session will include a password protected online gallery for you to view, favourite and select your images. All images will be digitally enhanced, retouched and high resolution, perfect for printing. A print release form is included in every package.
