SESSION INFO

The Newborn Experience

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?

Newborn sessions are typically booked while Mum is still pregnant. Most Mums book in their 2nd trimester. I will use your due date as a tentative session date, you will then contact me as soon as the baby is born to schedule your session within those first 2 weeks of birth. I only accept a limited number of sessions a month, so booking early guarantees your session date.

 

WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?

Newborn sessions take place in the first 2 weeks of being born. This is because after 2 weeks it’s a lot harder to get those “curly” baby poses & deep sleep that is required to do these poses.  Sessions are scheduled between 5-14 days old.

 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

My studio is based in Hillside, just outside Montrose, and I have the room nice and toasty warm for the baby and I will play some calming white noise in the background.  I ask that baby is stripped to nappy on arrival and wrapped in a blanket and given a feed so they are “milk-drunk”.   I will start with the blanket backdrop shots and then 1-2 “prop” shots.  Sometimes baby needs a wee top-up feed just to put them over again for the “prop” shots.  Newborn babies often pee/poo or both during their shoots, so do not worry about that! :-)

 

ARE PROPS INCLUDED?

I have a variety of props that are all available to use.  You are more than welcome to bring along anything that you may have bought for the session or any special blankets, and I will be happy to use them!

 

ARE FAMILY PICTURES INCLUDED? WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?

Yes, I can certainly do Mummy & Daddy photos, and are included in the session fee. I encourage older siblings to get in on some of the shots too.  We will do everything in our power to make sure to get those sibling poses, however, it all depends on the temperament of both the sibling and newborn. Only you can judge if your oldest will be able to sit through getting their picture taken with their newborn.

 

 

The Essential Collection will produce 10 beautiful images which take 3 hours to edit, the Classic Collection produces 18 images, and the Deluxe Collection will produce 25-30 images which take 6 hours to edit, this is why that I ask a Package is chosen before the session as a lot of time is invested in creating these beautiful images. I endeavour to create stunning images you will treasure for years to come with fine art editing on every image, which takes approx 2-3 weeks to edit. When they are ready you will be sent an email with password to your online gallery to view and buy products.
