How soon should I have the photos taken? Newborns are still generally very sleepy during the first 20 days and we find that between about 5 and 20 days is the best time for their photos. During this time they are at their most “poseable”.  We can put them in to some safe, adorable poses that you will love. We also capture the beautiful fine details such as hands and feet. However if your little one is older than this, no problem - but it may take a bit longer to get them off to sleep!   As you will not going to know the exact date that baby will be born (unless you are having a c-section),  we do offer some flexibility with our booking dates - that's the nature of the job! We will add your due date to our calendar - and as soon as baby is born, please call me so we can set the date for the photoshoot. We will always try to offer a few alternative dates so we can match your own commitments. We have also taken training in the methods of safe newborn and baby photography. During the shoot we will ALWAYS have someone in very close proximity to your child - ensuring safety and peace of mind.   Before you come to see us Before the photoshoot itself there are a few things to consider to enable us to get the best results from your session, so please read the following points for a few easy ideas to make the experience more enjoyable and productive. Try and keep your baby awake for as long as you can in the morning prior to coming to the studio as this will help when trying the get them off to sleep for the photos.  If you live close to our studio, you can feed baby just before you leave home and the journey will most likely send them off to sleep. Otherwise, please arrange your time so baby will be fed here immediately prior to the shoot. We can leave you in the privacy of our office while you give that feed - and then we can settle them down. What should baby wear? Please dress baby in a simple baby grow (not a tight vest) and wrap them in a comfortable blanket or wrap and cover so they do not have to be overly disturbed by undressing. We wish to minimise any compression marks on the skin resulting from tight clothing. If bottle feeding please bring some spare bottles as baby may feed a bit more than normal during the session.  Also bring a dummy if they use one. For most photographs baby will be naked, but tastefully posed so that all the “private bits” are not on show! We are quite “hands on” during the session, so don’t be alarmed by the amount of posing and handling of baby that we do. How long will it take? The shoot may last 2-4 hours, so you may want to bring a book or something to fill the time - and it’s time for you to have a short break!.    We will settle baby down - and when they are sound asleep we will commence putting them into some cute poses. And don’t be concerned or embarrassed when your little treasure poos and wees on us or the props, it is natural and expected. It’s all part of the “risks” of our job! What should I bring with me? Please bring spare nappies, wipes - and the other normal baby things you would need for a morning out and about. Family shots are also possible during our session - and in fact we encourage these to be taken!  It’s lovely to see the bond and connection between you and your child even at this early stage. We can also include siblings in your photos, however as the shoot is likely to be fairly lengthy they can very easily get bored. So we find it’s often best to keep them occupied elsewhere - and then bring them in towards the end of our session. Your photos will be re-touched before your viewing, so minor blemishes or rashes can be removed.  However please inform us at the time of the shoot IF you wish these to be left visible. What do I wear? Please dress comfortably (maybe with layers) for the shoot - as the studio will be quite warm so as to keep baby comfortable and relaxed. If you have indicated that the shoot will include you and/or your partner, please bring along a black or cream top. For Mum, strapless tops can look really nice with your skin against against babies skin. For Dad, sometimes a topless shot works well - but the choice is of course yours! And finally….. We aim to make the session as relaxed as possible - and a relaxed parent often means a relaxed baby. Stress will often make them disturbed and more prone to crying. The reason your shoot is allocated a substantial time is that babies ARE unpredictable - so there is time for a break, a walk, a feed - and plenty of comforting time. Your experience with us is valuable and we aim to make it as pleasant as possible for all of you. A comprehensive price list can be seen here
