New-born babies are ideally photographed between 1 - 14 days old, these first two weeks is when your baby is at their sleepiest. Older than this and they tend to sleep less soundly and baby acne and colic may flare up around this time as well.
I take bookings after your 20 week scan. As we can't set a definite date I do have to leave a few gaps in my diary around your due date to make sure I can fit you in when ever your baby decides to make an appearance so please do book as early as possible to make sure I can fit you in.
On the day of the session, other than the odd feed, you can relax, sit back and watch me work. The session can be anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on how settled baby is. We create a relaxing warm atmosphere with gentle music to get your baby into the deepest of sleeps.
I’m more than happy to photograph baby with mum & dad too if you would like. Due to the time required to do each set up please ask for prices/options if you would like to bring a sibling or additional family member.
As an artist I love to have the freedom to create something new and special for you. However, if you have any requests please let me know in advance so I can put together a little plan. Due to the nature of the session we cannot guarantee what poses your baby will do for us (some babies like being wrapped, others love the nude ones). Although we will try and do everything you would like during the session, we will always put your babies’ needs and safety first.
I will email you a short questionnaire sheet for you to complete before the session to help me prepare for the shoot.
