When should I book my newborn session?
You can contact me any time during your pregnancy to book your newborn photo session. I am generally booked up a month in advance so try and get booked nice and early. I will add a temporary date to the calendar which we will change depending on when he or she arrives.
Newborn shoots ideally take place within the first 5 - 10 days after baby is born. That way they are still nice and sleepy and extra flexible to get into those super cute poses.
Where do you do the shoot?
Posed newborn sessions take place at my house in Hemel Hempstead. If the day of the session arrives and you are unable to travel I will be happy to come to you. There would be a small fee for travel over 10 miles.
How long does a shoot last?
I usually find that shoots last around 3-4 hours. I set aside extra time for newborn shoots for settling, feeding and cleaning up messes and only ever book one newborn shoot a day so there is absolutely no rush.
Can we include clothes/toys/siblings?
I love including personal possessions. I've done lots of shoots using blankets passed down from parents, which make the photos even more special.
I am also happy to get photos of baby with older brothers and sisters, just let me know on your booking form.
When do I get to see the photos?
This is the exciting bit!!
Your Reveal Session takes place around 2 weeks after you newborn session. We sit down together and go through around 20-25 images choosing all your favourites and deciding what products you love, whether thats digital files, albums, canvases, metal prints or more.
