Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions for my newborn photography package.
This style of newborn / baby photography is a more natural, un-posed approach. The photos are taken in the comfort of your own home where you and your baby are most comfortable. My aim is to document some of these early moments of not only the newest member of your family but also of you together as a family.
These shoots usually take place in your home but outside shots can also be included such as in your garden or a nearby park etc.
As I come to your home, there's not a lot you need to prepare. Once you've booked your session, I will send you some more information with a few helpful tips.
The sooner the better! I can only take on a limited number of shoots per month so don't leave it for too late.
Just let me know your due date and I will pencil this in to my calendar. As soon as your baby arrives, get in touch with me and we'll work out a date for your shoot.
Newborn shoots are typically done when your baby is in-between 5 -14 days old. They are still very sleepy and so small. Of course, we can schedule baby lifestyle shoots after these first 2 weeks but these photos often have a different feel to them, as baby is more alert.
This depends on each baby but I usually allow for 1,5 - 2 hours. Sometimes we even need a little bit of extra time to stop when your baby needs to be changed, fed or just cuddled!
You will usually receive your online gallery within 3-4 weeks and shortly after this you will receive your USB with digital files. Depending on my current workload, this estimated time frame could be much shorter.
No, they will not be.
I will bring with me a selection of blankets, throws, wraps, headbands, hats, bonnets etc. It's also always extra sweet to include a few personal items such as baby's favourite toy or blanket.
Your non-refundable booking fee is non-refundable. However, if for unseen circumstances you need to cancel and aren?t able to reschedule your shoot, then you may use this as credit towards a baby lifestyle session or a family session at a later stage.
Contact me ASAP and we can figure out the best date for you. To secure your session I will need a signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee. I will then send you your 'Newborn/Baby Welcome Package' to enjoy.
