WHAT TO EXPECT
It is best to book in your newborn session whilst you are still pregnant as newborn sessions really must be done in the first 14 days of life. Babies are so squishy, sleepy and co-operative at this age that it allows for better posing. It is a good idea to book at least two months in advance to insure availability at your due date.
On the day of the session it’s best if you feed your baby just after arrival and I allow plenty of time for this. This will ensure baby is super sleepy and contented when we begin the session. We follow your baby’s lead during the session and stop if baby needs soothing, changing or feeding.
Your photos will be ready for viewing via a personal online password protected gallery. The online gallery allows you to easily download and share your images as well as order prints and other products directly.
For my newborn sessions I have a portable set up, including studio lighting, that allows for a number of different backdrops, blankets and poses. I can set up in my own space at home or, if it is easier for you and the baby I can travel to you and set up in your home. I have a selection of blankets and throws to use as backgrounds and wraps for the baby, I tend to lean towards light colours and cosy textures but if you have any preferences let me know and I will work them in! A couple of changes of outfit is possible within your session, again light colours tend to work best but if you have any ideas about the style I am flexible. Newborn babies tend to look best in short sleeves and legless outfits so they don't appear swamped in their clothes and capture the lovely soft arms and feet of your newborn.
