You should try to book your newborn photography session as early as possible into your pregnancy, if possible, around 20 weeks pregnant, or as close as you can to this date. Once your baby is born we can then agree on a final date for your session and discuss the types of images you like, in particular, the colours, fabrics and poses you love.
When does the session take place?
The takes place when your baby is between 5 days and 4 weeks new and sessions last between 2 – 4 hours to allow sufficient time to feed and soothe baby to sleep. Often, babies tend to be very sleepy during these early weeks allowing me to create beautiful, timeless images of your baby.
What happens during the session?
During the session, I will work through a number of different set-ups using the newborn baby posing beanbag and a variety if props, blankets and outfits, in particular, I aim to capture both sleepy and awake shots for you. I choose only the best suppliers when selecting props and my favourites include Baby Prop Shop, Dutch Style, Props for Photographers, to name a few.
What happens after the session?
Following your session, I will hand edit the very best images to create your final gallery and then I will invite you to return to my studio to view your gallery. I will have a range of sample products for you to view that will help you to select the products you may wish to purchase, for example, USB presentation boxes, frames and mounted prints.
