Get in touch and we can book the shoot in on the first available date that suits us both, I require a non-refundable booking fee to reserve your booking which is then deducted from the session fee. The rest is due no later than 24 hours prior to the session.
Ideally newborn shoots need to take place within 14 days of birth to get that beautiful newborn pose. I advise to book as early as possible to secure a date and arrange the shoot for a week after your due date, then if he/she comes early/late we can reschedule. The shoot is best done on a morning and can take 2-4 hours depending on your baby as the majority of the time is spent trying to get the little one into a sleepy dreamy state so we can position them. Ideally it would be best to come and set up whilst baby is having a feed so they'll be all sleepy in time for the shoot as you'll have your routine when feeding.
Try and time your feed for the start of the session, whilst feeding, if you could not dress baby, have them in a blanket and just put a nappy on around baby so that it's not fastened so we don't disturb baby when they’re asleep that would be great.
Bring plenty of nappies, bottles, wipes etc. They do tend to feed more during sessions.
I'll try to vary the shoot by using different positions, different backgrounds and a variety of newborn hats/headbands. I always ask that a parent is on hand to help with positioning and holding the baby, this can also be a good time to get some shots of mum/dad with the baby. Most of the time we will be waiting till the baby is in a deep sleep so there is a lot of hanging around but it’s definitely worth the wait
Newborn photography requires a considerable amount of editing afterwards as so many babies have dry or flaky skin, newborn acne or jaundice and as a result they can take up to 2-3 weeks to be available to view.
I will contact you to arrange a viewing. At this viewing you will get to see samples of books, canvasses etc. If you wish to purchase anything I will offer a discount on the majority of the products purchased at the viewing. Products must be paid for in full at time of ordering. After the viewing, the products will revert back to standard pricing and the photos will be uploaded onto a private online gallery. I will give you the password to login to view them; anyone can view these if you provide them with the password so you are in full control of who gets to view them. You can still purchase additional Print Packages, Canvasses, Photobooks, Digital Files etc if you wish to from your online gallery but these products will not be discounted. A copy of this pricelist will be sent before the session – these are the standard prices. Purchases are not a mandatory requirement of the session and there is no minimum order.
