Newborn sessions are a wonderful way to document your new baby's early days.
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 necessary.
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 want any.
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?
After the session I will edit around 25-30 images for an online gallery for you to view your images in the comfort of your own home. The only thing I ask is that you place your order within 7 days. To help implement this you will see that the prices of digitals go up after 7 days and the collections I offer are only valid for 7 days. So its always a good idea to prepare in advance for what you think you might go for.
So what will it cost me ?
The session fee is £160 but £100 of this is a credit towards your order so its basically a minimum spend.
What you decide to buy will obviously determine how much you spend, I offer a beautiful range of wall products and mounted prints for you to choose from along side my collections which you can see here.
However most people today want digitals and this is the most popular sale. So as long as you purchase within 7 days the total cost would be...
Session and 10 digitals £320
Session and full gallery £510
But of course you can just spend your £100 credit thats in your session fee and for that you could buy 5 beautifull 5x7 mounted prints, all ready for framing.
