BUMPS AND NEWBORNS

HOW IT WORKS

Our newborn sessions are held in our studio and designed to make you and your baby feel at ease, in a calm and warm set up. The best time for a newborn shoot is in the first 14 days, the baby will sleep lots and still have the curled up position which makes posing easier and safer.

This session is longer than our standard one, it will last 2-3 hours to allow time for feeding and lots of cuddles so you can rest assure that you won’t feel rushed. 

After your 20 week scan is the best time to book, it will be a provisional date around your due date and then once baby arrives you let us know and I will book your actual date. Early booking are encouraged to make sure I can fit you in as I only book a few newborns in a week.  

 Before the shoot we will discuss colours and artistic set ups you would like for your newborn. This will all be ready for when you arrive. My aim is to style your shoot using your chosen colour palette, using a selection of wraps, textures and props to create range of images that complement each other.  

One of my favourite parts of the shoot is getting a few parent and sibling shots. I totally understand it is not what you want, having just given birth and sleep deprived. But I shoot e shot in black and white and in a way that capture some real magical moments and doesn’t include smiling at the camera, so really worth considering. 

The work doesn’t stop once the shoot is finished, care and attention is taken to hand edit all selected images and you will be invited back to view and choose your images.

YOUR QUESTIONS

When should I book my newborn shoot?
The best time to book is after your 20 week scan. We can provisionally book you in based on your due date and can always move it a few days if your little one arrives earlier or later.
What's included?

2-3 hours in the studio
Use of a wide range of props and handmade outfits, hats and headbands.
A viewing session, around 20-30 hand edited photos to choose from.

Please note, images are not included in the session fee. You will need to chose from the print packages during your viewing session.

What if my baby doesn’t sleep?

Although I will try my best to get all the shots you want, every baby is different therefore so is every session. There are certain poses that requitre the baby to be asleep but rest assure there are plenty of lovely shots I can get of your baby awake. I am led by the baby and if I feel they are not sleepy enough to position in certain props then I will move on to another position . Safety always comes first.

Why do I have to book my newborn shoot in advance?

Due to the long sessions and amount of editing required for a newborn shoot, I have limited spaces allocated a week. If I know to expect you I can block out some time. I can take last minute bookings if I have space but due to the short window of time (5-14 days old) I would hate to have to turn anyone away.

Will you be handling my baby?

Yes, I will be posing and settling your baby. I will be using a number of posing techniques which I am trained to do. All poses are safe.
