My absolute favourite subject to photograph. Capturing the ‘essence of new life’ the innocence of a newborn and their first special moments of arriving into this world is such a blessing. The best time to book your newborn session is while you are still pregnant during your 5th or 6th month or (anytime earlier). I can only book limited newborn sessions per month and my schedule fills up fast, so booking your session in early will ensure i’m available for you once your baby arrives. I limit the amount of sessions per month to ensure the highest quality of sevice to you. If you have already had your baby and are considering a newborn session please contact me as soon as possible and i may still be able to schedule you in.
The best time to photograph newborns is between 9-16 days old, whilst they are still super sleepy and can be easily positioned into those curly poses that everyone just adores. After this age babies tend to have a startle reflex and positioning them into poses wakes them, also baby acne and rashes on their delicate skin can start to flare.
I have a wide variety of props for your newborn session that i have sourced from all over the world. I supply everything from hats, headbands, wraps, blankets, backdrops, furs, baskets and buckets etc so there is no need to purchase anything for the session.
Once you have booked your newborn session a detailed email and welcome pack will be sent out. This is filled with information on what to expect, what to bring and how to get you best prepared for your session.
Sessions typcally last between 2-3 hours depending on how baby is on the day. These sessions are not rushed as we allow time for feeding, settling, posing and changing sets etc.
