Congratulations on becoming a parent!
This is such a special time and you should be so proud of yourself for bringing your tiny miracle into the world. You finally have the little cutie that you have been waiting 9 months to meet in your arms!
The best time for newborn sessions is when baby is between 5-14 days new. This is because at this age they are still very sleepy and their bones are still soft, which makes it easier to get those curled up squishy shots that are so adorable.
So when should you book in for your newborn session? Honestly, there is no such thing as booking too early! As long as you know your due date, I can pop you in the diary for a week after he/she is due to arrive. We can then jiggle this date around closer to the time depending on when baby makes an appearance.
Sessions will take place at my boutique studio. This provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy watching your baby being photographed. A session will typically last about 2-4 hours, although this can vary with every baby. It may seem like a long time, but with all the feeding and ‘accidents’ it will go by so quickly. The room will need to be kept very warm for your baby. This is to mimic the warmth of the womb so that baby will feel comfortable when naked. I work around the needs of your baby, and they very much dictate the session. Their safety and comfort is my priority during the session.
During the session I will use a variety of props including baskets, blankets and accessories. If you would like any personal possessions included in your photos, please do have them ready and I can incorporate them into your photos so that they are truly personal to you. If you would also like to be in some photos with your baby you are more than welcome to. I advise that you wear a plain colour top without any patterns or logos so that it isn’t too distracting.
My number one aim is to provide you with beautiful memories that you can proudly display and look back on for a lifetime. Photographs are more than just pictures, they are perfect moments frozen in time.
