As a mum of two and a qualified newborn photographer, I understand how precious those first days are with your newborn baby and how much it means to have their tiny fingers and toes captured on camera for you always to look back on.
My newborn photography is captured within the studio in Bebington in a relaxed and calm environment. The shoot will take place for any newborn up to the age of 21 days old. At this age they sleep for hours at a stretch and will be peaceful whilst they are posed as well as fully relaxed. (However, I do shoot older newborns too!) A newborn shoot is advised to be booked up to three months in advance. As we never know when baby wishes to make an appearance, it is best to calculate a date within two weeks of your due date and this can be rescheduled nearer the time depending when baby has arrived. However, if you are reading this and baby has already made an appearance, please do not worry, I leave last minute slots available each week to pencil you in- just pop me a message through the contact section.
Once you are all booked in for your session, you can relax knowing you have it all sorted. My newborn sessions are up to three hours long, ensuring that you have plenty of time for baby to settle. Only part of that time is actually taking the images and the rest of the time is usually cuddling, soothing or feeding. It also allows for you to relax too knowing you have time to enjoy it.
Before the shoot, you will be sent some information via e-mail on how to prepare you and baby. Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, it is advisable to try and keep baby awake as much as possible prior to the shoot and feed baby upon arrival. This can be tricky, as the baby set the rules so parents are advised to follow baby and their needs. However, on the day you may find the baby will be out of their usual routine and will be guided to be fed on regular occasion to keep baby relaxed, happy and sleepy ready for posing.
When arriving at the studio, please ensure you are able to wear a mask. I also, will be wearing a mask and be following covid-safety guidelines. Hand sanitiser and gloves will be used during the shoot and my hands will be washed frequently throughout.
After the shoot takes place, you will be invited back to the studio to view the images with me, this helps as usually I take around 15 images, (for the classic package) which you can then view and choose which digital images you would like. If at this point, you would like to purchase prints, frames or other wall art, you can view my samples and prices. If you wish to see the prices prior to this appointment please let me know and I will be happy to send over some information prior to the shoot.
If you are thinking of booking a session and you have some reservations or questions, please get in touch. I am really honest and approachable which means you can fire away with any sort of questions! For now, take a look at these gorgeous newborn images and send me some details about your imminent arrival!
"Great experience- so patient even when baby was not in the mood! Made us all feel very relaxed and comfortable and really accommodating with changing booking to fit in with lockdown restrictions! Wore a mask and all felt very safe/distanced. Love the photos! " Review by the lovely Sarah at her newborn shoot.
