Newborns photo shoots take place at your home where the environment and temperature will be suitable for your little ones. No hard posing’s will be involved just capturing the natural newborn poses and the love and connection between you.
Any time of the day will work just be informed that newborn sessions are longer as they may need to have a nap or be fed and changed during the photo shoot.
I schedule newborns at any age, but I strongly encourage you to first consider what sort of newborn photos you want.
Babies Younger than Two Weeks
When babies are at least under two weeks of age, they can be posed into curly forms much easier and stay asleep longer and they less care about changing and wrappings in between. It is also recommended to wait until baby is five days old since during the first five days babies and mums are struggling to get into a better nursing routine.
Babies Older than Two Weeks
If your baby is older than two weeks do not worry just be informed that babies older than two weeks may be a little bit harder to pose and they may not like to be posed or get wrapped. Therefore they may be awake in most of the photos. The good thing about waiting is that mums will recover from birth a little more and they can feel better during session.
This totally depends on you but as you’ll be at home I suggest more casual and simple outfits. If you cannot choose between your outfits, do not worry I can help you when I get to your home. For newborn babies I will also bring some props and outfits.
Two weeks after photo shoot your edited images will be placed in an online gallery with a password which you can choose your favorite photos within the comfort of your own home without any pressure. According to your chosen package you will have access to 15-40 edited and ready to print photos with watermark on them to choose and purchase according to your package.
Generally I don't do lots of retouch on peoples faces and bodies unless they ask me to, but if you want more retouch on any area of your face or body you can let me know at the time of choosing your photos.
The session fee is £225 for 3 hours of photography Which should be paid at the time of booking. The session fee pays for my skill and artistic vision and the time I am photographing your newborn and your family. Please bare in mind that this fee does not include any edited digital images.
