Weymouth Newborn Photoshoot
When do I book?
You can book your session as early as your 20 week scan…once you have had the scan I can allocate a couple of weeks for you around your due date and then as soon as baby has arrived you can text me to arrange a day and time and we can chat about everything. This is advisable as I can get very busy and allocating your due date means you will always have your slot reserved. You can call or email me to book your session. I take a £25 non refundable session fee due on booking to secure your space, covers session time, talent, props used etc. this DO NOT include any prints or digitals.
When is the best time to have my session?
To get the very best from your newborn session your baby needs to be between 5 and 14 days old and preferably no later than 3 weeks. This is due to the fact that they are still super sleepy and still curled so we are able to position baby in all the sweet poses you have seen on my website.
What happens at my session?
Our Newborn sessions start as near to 10am as you can make it as babies tend to suffer less from colic earlier on the day… We work in our new studio where you can sit and relax while your session takes place. Your session usually takes between 2 – 4hrs as a lot of time is taken with feeding changing and settling baby and changes of backdrops props and etc… there is no rush and we can take our time. We will have discussed any preferences you may have what sort of shots you would like, family shots, colours etc.
Do you take Partner & Sibling images?
We love taking Mummy and Daddy shots during our newborn sessions, and our style is relaxed and informal so even the most camera shy can be assured we won’t ask you for fake smiles etc..often the best images are when you are not looking at the camera and even baby in daddies arms and hands can be very powerful if dad doesn’t want to be photographed. Older Brothers and Sisters are welcome to have their photographs taken with their new baby but as we all know young children get bored very easily, and babies are not comfortable being held by young children we get round this by having a few specific shots that have been tried and tested to get the best images of baby and their brothers and sisters. We do try and get these shots done first and ask that someone can come an take the children away after we have finished these shots. If for some reason baby isn’t settling we can bring them back and get the shots at the end of the session.
When will I see my images?
During your session I will show you a few of your pictures as we take them Once we have finished the session my job has just begun. I will take 2-3hrs to go through all the images we take and find 20-30 of the very best…these I will edit and colour correct babies skin and remove spots, rashes and scratches etc…birthmarks , mongolian blue spot and moles will not be retouched unless specifically requested.
Your images will be displayed in a custom on-line gallery within 2-3 weeks where you can download your image files and order prints. Images are kept on file for 6mths.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me either by email: email@example.com or by phone 07515382865
Unfortunately due to the nature of newborn sessions 48hrs minimum notice is required to re-arrange any confirmed bookings as time is spent preparing for your shoot and I cannot fill these sessions without prior notice.
Please can you not take photographs with you mobiles/ipads etc.
What do I bring with me?
Milk, milk and more milk! baby will need lots of top ups throughout the session so as long as we have milk we will be fine, if you are breast feeding and you can express a little beforehand to give you a little break thats a good idea..if not we have plenty of time for you to top baby up.
Dummy or pacifier if you use one… this can be a godsend to just get them off into that dreamy sleep.
We provide tea and coffee. Dad can bring his laptop etc for entertainment or he can simply have a snooze!
Clothing My style of shooting newborns is with little clothing so outfits are not usually necessary …I have a vast range of wraps shawls and little knitted and crocheted rompers to make your images timeless and last for a very long time to come.
Parents I always advise on plain and pastel colours and maybe a black top each also.
Siblings plain pastel colours work really well for sibling shots, I’m always happy to photograph parent shots and sibling shots skin to skin if thats something you feel you would like. I have plenty of wraps to cover you with and keep shoulders bare.
All babies are different and the majority settle really well and sleep through most of the session. I adore babies and have years of experienced and endless patience so you have no need to worry or stress at all. I am trained in Newborn Photography and Safe Baby Handling and I am a member of Qualified photographer with the Guild of Photographers. I would never put your precious baby at risk just to get an image.
