FAQ about our Newborn Sessions
When do Newborn sessions take place?
Newborn sessions are best when your baby is between 3-14 days new, this is because they are still tiny, sleepy and have that gorgeous newborn curl.
When should I book my newborn session?
I book a limited amount of sessions each month so that each client receives my personal attention. To ensure your desired session time please contact me as soon as you know you would like to book a newborn session. Most bookings are taken after the 20 week scan.
How do I book a session when I am not sure when baby will be born?
I will pencil your due date in my calendar as soon as you book. you will then contact me when your baby arrives to schedule your session.
My baby has already been born can I still book a session?
Yes! while generally I book newborn sessions many months in advance, given the necessarily fluid nature of scheduling newborn sessions, I sometimes have last minute openings. While I recommend that the newborn sessions are done within the first 2 weeks of life I am happy to photograph older newborns, with the understanding that it may not be possible to achieve the type of images that work with a very young newborn.
Where does the session take place?
All newborn sessions take place in my Natural light studio which has been designed to give you the home from home experience so that you can relax and enjoy your session.
How long does a Newborn session last?
Newborn sessions are between 2-4 hours depending on your newborn. The session is tailored to your baby to make sure there is no rush and plenty of time for nappy changes, feeds & cuddles.
Can siblings and parents be in a few images?
Yes of coarse I love to capture images of new parents with their newborn child and the bond between siblings. If you are wanting this then please discuss with me before your session.
Can I request certain poses or images I’ve seen on other photo sites?
If there is something that you have seen please discuss this with me before your session so I can prepare what I need to do it. But please no that I will not create images that I deem unsafe and I will not guarantee any pose as every newborn is different and may not want to go in the pose you have requested.
What should we wear?
Simple is best. I photograph newborns wearing nothing or with minimal clothing supplied by me. I recommend that the rest of the family wear clothing that coordinates without matching exactly. Children should wear clothing they like and are comfortable in, although it is best to avoid busy patterns and logos.
How many proofs will I get to choose from?
I fully edit approx 25+ images from your session so you have a beautiful collection of a variety of different poses to choose from. Your gallery will be ready for your viewing appointment usually within 2 weeks of your session.
Once you book we will send you a full detailed information guide with everything you need to know about the session.
