Newborn photography shoots are my favourite. They require a lot of skill, patience and time but the results are well worth it. Those first few days of your baby’s life are so precious and that beautiful newborn stage is over before you realise it, those teeny, tiny, hands and feet, the wrinkled skin and wispy hair. Let me capture these first special days of your newborn’s life so they can be treasured forever.
My newborn photography sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home. I also bring along my own props and set-ups and I use a mixture of lighting, both artificial and natural light.
WHEN TO BOOK…
It is never too early to book a newborn photography session. Simply let me know your due date and I will reserve a time frame for you. The ideal time to photograph a newborn is between 5 – 10 days old. During this time babies will usually retain some of the natural curl from when they were in mummy’s tummy. Also they generally sleep a lot which makes beautiful shots as they look so peaceful when they are sleeping. After 2 weeks, newborns are more likely to be disturbed whilst sleeping and may start having problems with colic and baby acne.
It’s not uncommon for the session with a newborn to last up to 2 hours. I like the session to be relaxed and unrushed, allowing plenty of time for feeding, changing and cuddles between shots. I know mum is recovering and I want the new parents to feel completely comfortable and never rushed for the best possible photographs.
AFTER YOUR SESSION…
Approximately 2 weeks after your session, your images will be ready to view! We will then arrange a Viewing & Ordering appointment in the comfort of your own home and I will show you a gorgeous slideshow of your wonderful images! We can then go through your photos and discuss different display options with you of how you would like to present your photos. It’s important to think about your goals before your session so we have a better understanding of how and where you would love to display your photos in your home. I can also show you examples of custom designed products to include frames, albums and many more! To view some of the products available, please view the Products page.
