The love and affection you instantly feel when your tiny newborn baby is placed in your arms for the very first time is like no other love you will ever experience. They are your finest creation.
However the first few weeks are an emotional rollercoaster for new parents and the time just whizzes by in no time at all and those first few days become a distant blurred memory.
Newborn Portrait Sessions capture your baby when just days old, when they were so tiny and curled up all they did was sleep, eat and cry. When you book a Newborn Portrait Session with me all the tiny details will be captured and you will have the memories preserved to last a lifetime
Your baby is the main focus of the session and props are kept to a minimum to focus on your baby. The majority of our images will be of your baby on my posing table with simple posing and wrapping and on the floor in some of our beautiful props.
The best time to book a Newborn Portrait Session is around the same time as your 20 week scan. All that’s required is the deposit payment to ensure you are booked in.
As babies seldom arrive on their due dates, days are blocked off on my calendar for the weeks before, during and after your date so there will always be a day or two available for you once you are home and settled with baby. Once baby has arrived all you need to do is let me know and we can then firm up a date for your session for when baby is ideally 6-8 days old.
Safety is paramount and I will never put your baby in poses that are unnatural or would put baby at risk in any way. A lot of the images you may see on my social networking pages are “Composite Images” where 2 images have been taken while baby is being supported by a parent, and then precisely edited to align the images and remove the parent. I have personally trained with some of the UK’s best newborn photographers have over 10 years experience of working with newborn babies in the studio.
I now offer three options for Newborn Sessions. The first is a Baby Only Session (£250) which lasts around 2 hours and focuses solely on your baby. The second option is a Baby+ Session (£325) which lasts around 2-3 hours and includes Parents OR Siblings OR Pets. The third option is a Family Newborn Session(£395) lasting around 3-4 hours and includes Parents, Siblings & Pets. All Session types include Full Res Digital Images for you to download to your computer/laptop allowing you to print as you wish. A £50 deposit is required at time of booking to secure your session, the balance is payable on or before your confirmed session date once baby is born. I also have a client loyalty scheme in place for returning client’s. Discount differs on type of session booked.
Sessions take place on Mon-Wed during the week for Baby Only Sessions while Baby+ & Family Newborn Sessions can also take place on Saturdays & Sundays. Sessions are between the hours of 11am-3pm
I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to the Studio to capture your newborn baby’s images. In the meantime just sit back and look around your home and plan where you can hang those first precious images of your new family unit and your beautiful newborn baby.
