HOW IT WORKS

SETTING A DATE

The ideal time to have your newborn baby photographed is when they’re aged between 6 and 14 days old so it best to book your newborn photoshoot before your baby arrives.

When you book I’ll make a note of your due date in our calendar and ask you to let me know when you baby is born. I’ll confirm the exact date of your session after your baby’s birth to ensure it is within the the 5 to 14 day window.

To book your session, please get in touch with me by email, phone of by filling in the form at the end of this page. When I receive the session fee your place is confirmed in my diary.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION

Before your shoot I’ll be at the end of the phone to answer any questions you may have and learn more about your family so I can tailor the shoot to you.

I’ll share lots of practical tips and helpful information that will help you to feel prepared and relaxed for your newborn shoot.

A few days before we’ll have a chat and run through the final details and make sure you are prepared and and have a relaxed and enjoyable session.

THE DAY OF YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT

The day of your photoshoot has arrived. We will spends about 3 to 4 hours together. I won’t spend all the time taking photographs. Most babies need a few little breaks in between for a feed, a nappy change and a little cuddle.

During the session, you are welcome to enjoy a selection of teas, coffee and snacks.

At the end we’ll photograph you as a family, including sibling portraits if you have older children.

The balance of your shoot will be due today.

VIEWING YOUR PORTRAITS

7 to 10 days after your session I’ll send you your private online gallery where you can see your fully edited gallery of photographs from your session. 

Your USB will be prepared and will be delivered to you by Royal Mail and processed as “1st Class, signed for”.

Should you wish to choose albums or any other printed products this could take up to 4 to 6 weeks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

When is the best time to book my newborn session?

It’s best to book your newborn session a few months before your baby is born to make sure I have availbility around your due date. You can book your newborn session anytime after your 12 week scan.

If your baby is already here, please give me a call on 07909876534 to check for last minute availibility.I may beable to squeeze you in if other babies have arrived a little earlier or later than planned.

My baby is more than 2 weeks old. Is it too late for a newborn shoot?

The ideal time for newborn photographs is between 6 and 14 days of age. After 2 weeks, babies typically start to spend longer periods awake, uncurl, stretch out and grow larger.

However, it is possible to create beautiful photographs after 2 weeks of age. I photographolder babies up until 8 weeks of age.

If you have missed the 2 week window and would like to find out about your options, please get in touch.

You can send me a message at the end of this page or give me a call on 07909 876534.

 

What if my baby is born prematurely or has an extended stay in the hospital?

If you baby is premature or has an extended stay in the hospital, this can be such a stressful time with recovering from the birth and adjusting to your baby’s unexpected situation.

When you are ready to consider doing your newborn images, just let me know and we can discuss the specifics of your situation. Often with premature newborn babies, we are flexible with the “optimal window”.

 

We don’t want our baby shared online or on social media. Can you guarantee this?

I take your privacy very seriously and will only publishyour images with your permission. If you give permission, your images will be shared anonymously (I will never share your or your baby’s names.)

Any images shared online will go hand in hand with a signed model release.

 

Can we buy the digital files?

Yes. After the session you will have the option to purchase the high resolution digital files.

You can find my newborn pricing here.

 

What if my baby has spotty or flaky skin? Should we wait with the shoot?

It is very unusual for a newborn baby to not have spotty or flaky skin. This is very common. With your permission, I will fix this when I am retouching the photographs after your shoot.
