Becoming a parent is a magical experience, but those precious moments can fly by so fast. A newborn photoshoot is a lovely opportunity to capture some precious moments of your new baby during the first few weeks of their life.
I specialise in beautiful rustic newborn photography combined with modern parent/baby shots that are striking yet tender. Pictures are usually a mixture of 'Au Naturel' and wrapped (and don't forget the cute little hats!).
The best time for a newborn shoot is within the first two weeks – and best after the clip has fallen off. The longer it is left, the more aware your baby becomes and the less likely it will be to get certain poses.
First, we can have a chat and discuss your requirements and then set aside a rough time slot based on your due date. It's OK if you are a little early or late, we can move the date around to suit.
The photoshoot will last about 2 hours and take place in my little studio. The number and types of pictures we can get depends entirely on your little one – but rest assured I am very patient!
I will email over the proof images so that you can view them and choose which ones you would like as prints or digital files. Once you place your order I can usually have the pictures ready in a few days.
That's all there is to it – nice and simple!
The photoshoot requires a lot of patience and takes place in a very warm studio (for the newborn's comfort). This is not an ideal environment for a young sibling – so for this reason I don't do sibling shoots at the same time as a newborn shoot. A specific mini-shoot can be added and scheduled for a different time, where we can make it a more suitable environment for the sibling. The mini-shoot costs just £25 and lasts about 30 minutes.
The total cost will depend on the prints you want – but generally most people choose to invest between £150 and £250. The cost of the session itself is just £65, which is payable up-front to secure the date. Prints and digital files can then be purchased separately at very reasonable and competitive prices.
Once you have received your proof images, you can choose to purchase digital files. Each picture will be carefully edited and provided on a download link for you to save to your phone/device.
Once you have selected which images you would like as digital files, you can then choose to receive any of them as prints. Most sizes are available, but different sizes will require different crops on the image (I will provide a preview of how the crop will look).
Prices start from about £10 per print (which is in addition to the price of the digital version of the image) – I can provide a quote for the prints you require.
