NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY - £100 session fee plus choice of digital & print package
If you like my baby-in-a-basket and/or beanbag images, it is best to have your session at my studio because I have many backgrounds and props for you to choose from and can use my full range of lighting equipment to maximum effect. I can create three different set-ups, using a variety of backgrounds and colour combinations of your choice. Afterward, I can photograph you and your partner with your baby. Sessions tend to last two to three hours, to allow for baby-changing and feeding breaks. Sibling/s can join the shoot toward the end but ideal is if they are brought to the studio after the newborn, maybe by your partner, to allow peace and quiet for the newborn work.
If you prefer a natural, lifestyle look, I can visit your home for a few hours. I use a mix of daylight and portable flash-lighting and bring a white kingsize duvet cover and pillowcases, a variety of muted-colour muslin cloths to wrap your baby in, alpaca bonnets, dainty floral headbands and textured blankets. After this, we can do shots of you and your partner with your baby, maybe using your bedroom and/or living room as the setting. Sibling/s can join in the shoot after the main newborn shots - although sometimes I photograph them before so they do not get jealous!
Both studio and home sessions require a £100, non-refundable deposit. After your shoot, your images will be edited and uploaded on to a password-protected online gallery for your family to view from home. You can then select a print-and-digital package to suit your style and budget. I have gorgeous framing options in many sizes. Please email for a list of my print-and-digital packages, starting at £200 for 10 high-res digitals and 2 x A4 prints.
Ideally, a newborn session should be seven to ten days after the birth, to get that curled-up, sleepy look. Your baby can also be posed more easily at this age. But if you are only just getting out and about after three or four weeks, that is absolutely fine - older newborns are a bit more wriggly and not quite so sleepy but you do see their wonderful big eyes, wide open, and I can adjust poses according to their age. Let me know your expected due date so I can pencil in a potential shoot.
