NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

When should I book a newborn session?

It's best to book your newborn session in advance to guarantee a spot - around your 20 week scan is ideal. ​I will always try and fit in last minute bookings, but as I book up months in advance, it's not always possible.

 

At what age do newborn sessions take place?

The ideal age for a newborn session is between 5 and 14 days old. For babies with prolonged hospital stays, a later date can certainly be arranged. 

What if baby arrives early or later than expected?

As I only book a limited number of newborn sessions per month, we have the freedom to arrange a session date once your little one arrives. 

 

How long will a newborn session take?
Most newborn sessions take up to 4 hours. Whilst I understand you're eager to get back into the comfort of your own home, it is simply dependant on how baby is feeling. Ensuring they are happy, comfortable and safe is my first priority. 
I only book one newborn session per day, which means there's no rush and we can simply allow baby to take the lead - they're the boss!

Do you travel to my home for the newborn session?
No. I cannot travel to your home due to the large amount of lighting equipment, posing aids, backdrop systems, props and the many blankets, wraps and accessories that will be used during a session. 

What should my baby wear?

Bring your baby in something comfortable and easy to remove, and don't put socks on them (as they can leave little marks that show in photographs). 

What should I wear?

For parent photographs, I always suggest simple clothing with no bright colours and no large logos or patterns. For photographs involving more than one family member (such as mum and dad, or mum, dad and older sibling), try to keep to a colour scheme and avoid too many colours. 

Can I/or my eldest child have photographs with my baby? 
Absolutely! Parent and sibling photographs are included with all newborn packages as standard.
