If you’ve missed the newborn stage of up to 4 weeks old then this is the session for you.
These sessions are for babies between 4-10 weeks old.
Once babies get to about 4 weeks old, they tend to stretch out more and stay awake much longer which can make it difficult to do those gorgeous curled up poses you can do as a newborn . However, this does not mean we still can’t get some gorgeous images at this stage.
I still attempt newborn style images at this stage, the difference being baby tends to be more wrapped, we aim for more props shots, plus baby is generally more alert so we can get some lovely awake images. Parents and family images are still taken at this stage.
As always, the session will be baby led so I always advise to allow up to 3 hours for the session but generally most take between 1-2 hours.

Please contact me first so I can check if there is availability for your session.
The non refundable booking fee of £25 (for session only) will be required upon booking to reserve your slot. The balance is due at the session. You simply fill out a booking form online and pay the booking fee to reserve your date.
Try to time your feed for when you arrive or just before you set off so baby has a full tummy for the session. Try to avoid as much napping prior as possible, that way baby should sleep well.
I would suggest layers as it gets hot in the studio up to 25 degrees as baby is without clothes for beanbag shots. If you would like photos of yourself with your baby I would suggest plain, bold colours like black or white. Avoid big logos/stripes to detract away from your face.
I’ll try to vary the shoot by using different positions, different backgrounds and a variety of props. Obviously I will be limiting these to props that can be washed or cleaned properly.
I will provide everything that we need for the session. I always ask that a parent is on hand to help with positioning and handling the baby.
The session is very relaxed and baby-lead, most of the time we will be feeding baby, changing baby and waiting till the baby is in a deep sleep hence why these sessions can take up to 2 hours.
As the session is done at my home studio, it will be very comfortable; you are welcome to bring your own refreshments. If you require a parent shot we will do these at either the start/end of the session. The studio will be marked out in order for us to keep socially distant.
Once the session is over, I will edit all the photos taken on the day usually within a 2 week period. I will then email you with a link to view the photos on a private online gallery for 30 days. If you have digitals included in your packages this is where you will choose which images you want, I will then make them available for you to download. The instructions will be included in the email on what to do. Additional products may be purchased at this time.
