Newborn Baby Photography
Do I need to bring my own accessories?
Before the session, we have a consultation where we’ll discuss the props I have available and what colour schemes you prefer. I have various blankets, hats and wraps, but I am also more than happy for you to use your own props if there is an item that is meaningful to you. This pre-session consultation can happen via email or on the phone. This helps me get to know you better and ensures I’ll create images that are tailored to you.
Where do we take the photographs?
Newborn baby photography sessions are held in the comfort of your own home. I bring everything to you so you don’t have to worry about leaving the house. This way you can relax, be comfortable and settle and feed your baby whenever you need to.
How long does the photo session take?
As a guide, newborn photography sessions usually last about three hours. We need plenty of patience as well as time for feeding and settling your baby.
When should I book a newborn session?
It’s best to book in your newborn baby photography session up to four weeks before your baby is due, but if your baby is due a little sooner or has already arrived, please call or email me and I will do my best to fit you in.
We’ll discuss all the details before your baby arrives, as I know things can get a little busy afterwards. I can schedule you in according to your due date or another handy idea is to simply add me to your baby announcement list and I’ll be in touch to confirm a convenient date.
When is the best time to photograph my newborn?
It’s best to photograph newborns when they are six to 12 days old to allow them to be posed safely in those sweet, curly positions. During their first two weeks, babies are usually very sleepy and happy to settle into poses. After 14 days babies become much more alert and less flexible, making it harder to pose them – isn’t it amazing how quickly they grow?
When will I see my photos?
I know your cherub is growing quickly, so your online gallery will be ready about two to three weeks after your session date. I will be in touch as soon as your gallery is ready and provide you with log-in details.
