Newborn photography is a specialist service and can include maternity images too.
The optical time to have a newborn photography session is in the first 14 days of life. In order to make sure that you secure a booking for your newborn it is very important to contact me to reserve a date while you are still pregnant. I can book up months in advance, so please book in early to avoid disappointment. I add your expecting date to the diary and when the amazing day arrives gives me a call to finalise your appointment. Why is it this early? Well after a couple of weeks newborns lose their womb like behaviour which is so endearing, plus I want them to be sleepy, curly and comfy.
At the session itself I always take my time with newborns, being gentle and relaxed. I will never rush a session and take as much time as we need, allowing your baby to be my guide. Newborn sessions can typically therefore take 3-4 hours to complete - I want you to feel completely relaxed and enjoy every moment of your session without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.
I will provide a range of props and blankets, though I am very happy to incorporate your own personal items too. I will be manly handling baby during the session and giving you some rest and relaxation. Though I do however require you to be around for any assistance I may require and the safety of your little one.
Do contact me with any questions. Detailed information on my sessions, including advice on preparing are available to each client on booking.
