Newborn Photography

FAQs for newborns

Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions for my newborn photography package.

What exactly is a newborn / baby 'life-style' session?

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.

Where do newborn / baby shoots take place?

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.

Do we need to prepare anything before the shoot?

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.

How early should I book in for my newborn / baby lifestyle shoot?

The sooner the better! I can only take on a limited number of shoots per month so don't leave it for too late.

How do we book in an exact date for our newborn shoot when we don?t know exactly when our baby will arrive?

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.

How old should our baby be for their newborn 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.

How long will the shoot take?

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!

How long does it take until we receive our photos?

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.

Will my photos be watermarked?

No, they will not be.

Do you use props?

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.

What if I need to cancel my shoot?

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.

How do I book my session with you?

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.

- Kind words -

Thank you so much for the amazing photos you took of our newborn bub! We are so thrilled with the way they turned out and can't wait to print some to put in our house. The hard part is choosing which ones to use!! You were so friendly and easy going which made the session nice and relaxed, which I really think helped keep Harry calm and happy for the duration of his shoot. Our pregnancy shoot was also fantastic, we would happily recommend you for any occasion!! Thanks again!!
