Congratulations on the newest addition to your family! Hopefully the below will answer any questions you may have but, if not, have a look in the FAQ section or please contact us!
We specialise in photographing newborns and understand what it takes to turn your session into a meaningful work of art. We will work together to develop the look and feel of your customised portrait session.
The ideal time to photograph newborn babies is around 7-14 days of age. All newborn images shown on this website are of babies under the age of 14 days. It is highly advisable that we make a tentative booking while your still pregnant as to not miss out. We only accept a certain number of newborns each month so that we have no problems fitting in our clients. Once baby has arrived please contact us to confirm a date. After 2 weeks babies tend to have longer awake periods, start to cluster feed and baby acne can set in. The longer you wait after that two week window, the harder the session is likely to be. In these cases we might not get as many sleepy, curled up baby shots but you never know:)
Please be prepared for your newborn session to take up to 2-3 hours, allowing for comforting, feeding and settling baby. We like to allow for plenty of time for feeding and cuddling during the session. We have lots of props for you to choose from and please let us know if your after a certain shot in particular. We have a newborn guide we send out that contains lots of helpful hints on ways we can ensure baby is lovely and relaxed on the day of your session. Also tips for including older siblings and parent shots.
We fully appreciate how delicate newborn babies are and rest assured we take measures to ensure your baby is protected during this early stage. All our props are cared for using all natural cleaning products. No perfume/makeup or jewerly is worn to protect your baby.
We are truly honoured to be able to document this incredible time in families lives and look forward to getting to know you and your sweet baby!
