Newborn sessions are a wonderful way
to document your new baby's early days.
Im so pleased you've decided to take the
decision to think about a newborn
session. You certainly won't regret it!
Your baby will change so quickly but you
won't see it till time has passed and you
look back at your photographs! So what
does it cost? There is no session fee! I do
this free so there is absolutely no risk to
you. The session itself is around three
hours and I then edit the gallery for
around 6-8 hours. This will cost you
nothing. I do however ask for a
deposit of £99 when you book your session,
this is to stop people
not turning up for their session.
The £99 is then taken off your order.
If you wish to place an order then
there is a minimum spend of the £299
which is the smallest package
When should I book?
Ideally you should book in after your 20
week scan. I aim to photograph them
between day 6 and 10 so if you don't
contact me until your baby is born its
unlikely I will be able to give you a
session in time. That doesn't mean if
youv'e missed that window I cant help
you. It just means that after 10 days the
babies wake up and stretch out and you
will likely have a different kind of session
with different kinds of poses.
The session itself can last anywhere
between 2 1/2 hours to 3 1/2 hours. It
just depends on how the baby settles but
I will always try to be as efficient as I can
so your not sitting around longer than
I will try to get a couple of different
background changes for the beanbag
shots and will also try to do a couple of
prop shots, but again baby depending :)
To finish off I always like to get some
parent shots so please say if you dont
Newborn sessions only take place during
week days. The studio gets booked up on
Saturdays with family portraits. If you
have older children you would like to
include please consider asking to take
them out for an hour and then taking
them back to school.
What happens next?
At the session we will book in your
ordering session. Preferably 7-10 days
later. So please come prepared with
when will be a good time for you. I used
to do online galleries but have stopped
these. I felt as though I wasn't delivering
on what's possibly the most important
part of your journey with me and I was
missing out on the wonderful reactions.
I was also aware that people were
probably viewing the images on a phone
which was killing a little part of me every
day. Your images are wonderful and need
to be seen BIG! they need to be displayed
BIG in your home and I want to ensure
you enjoy every part of your journey with
me at a time when life can be a little
So i will invite you back to a personal
viewing of your images around 7-10 days
later. Its at this point you will decide
which package you would like to
