Newborn sessions take place in my home studio. The area is kept warm to keep your baby comfy and help regulate their body temperature. Due to the length of the session, newborn sessions are conducted in the morning’s only.
A good time to schedule a newborn shoot is anything between 5-10 days old. They tend to sleep more and are much more flexible for posing. I devote quite a bit of time to my newborns so be prepared for about 2-3hours for full sessions, allowing time for feeding breaks and nappy changes. Please plan to be flexible when scheduling your newborn session.
With newborn sessions i never guarantee each pose, the session is completely done with baby’s lead. Each baby is unique and has their own likes and dislikes. Should we find your little one is not happy with a chosen pose, we will move on to something else. This also applies to sibling shots. I will work my best to capture a toddler with his/her new brother/sister, but in some cases, toddlers have their own plans.
For most of the session i will focus on baby and towards the end i will capture the family/sibling shots.
Mini Sessions are 60 minutes long and full sessions are usually between 2-3 hours long. I recommend bringing a pacifier, even if baby is not taking one. This will help the session run smoother. I use this soothing tool when baby is not hungry, but needs pacification while posing.
All my sessions require a 50% retainer on booking to secure your spot. The remainder of the session balance is payable 7 days before your session date.
Payment plans available on request.
