My job as the newborn baby photographer is to make the shoot as easy and relaxed as possible, so that you can enjoy the experience and I can get the best images of your little one. Preparation is the key. Have a think about a particular theme or idea that you have in mind and always feel free to run ideas past me. Bring a few favourite outfits that you might like to include; simple colours work well so it’s a good idea to avoid complicated patterns where possible. Don’t forget your change and feeding bag, the studio has plenty of comfortable chairs for breastfeeding and a change table for you to use. We also have a woodburner to keep things cosy on the cooler days as well as plenty of tea and coffee!
Usually we aim for morning shoots starting at around 10am. I never rush through the experience as I want everyone to enjoy the whole process. We will start with a chat and a cup of coffee so that I can get to know you and your baby and we can discuss what sort of images you would like me to create. When we are ready to start you can change baby and get him/her ready for the shoot with a feed. The shoot itself can take around 3 hours, you will always be with your baby and there will always be time for cuddles, nappy changes and feeds where needed.
I am a very experienced baby photographer and a mum of two young children so I am able to get babies to relax in the studio. I reassure baby throughout the shoot and work in a calming way to get them to sleep. Each baby is different and I will adapt to the needs of your baby.
After Your Shoot
I will invite parents back to the studio around 2 weeks after the shoot as I professionally edit all images. I take great pride in making sure that every image is the best it can be and love to see the emotional reaction from the parents when they see the beautiful slideshow that I will create. I offer a range of packages which you can find under the “Prices” section of my website. If you choose to buy the images on a USB then you can take this with you on the day. Any prints or framed items will be processed and ready for you as soon as possible.
All babies and children who have visited me for photographs will now be automatically included in our VIB (Very Important Baby) group where you will hear about our exclusive offers and discounts before anyone else.
