MATERNITY & NEWBORN

01.

WHY SHOULD YOU BOOK ME?

I absolutely love the special energy and excitement that come from expecting a baby and holding the baby for the first time in your arms.

I take the most care of the baby during the session as they are so delicate and my approach is very gentle.

Think of me as a natural baby photographer focusing on what is delicate about the baby and the special bond with mum and dad.

 

02.

HOW IT WORKS?

I offer 3 types of sessions.

Maternity session, outdoors, in the studio or in your home.

Newborn session, in the studio or in your home.

placed him gently

Laura was clearly experience in handling babies and managed to calm my baby down and placed him gently into various appropriate poses. The studio was warm, homely and welcoming. I’d be recommending the grandparents here for a shoot later as a gift.

We are very happy with the resulting photographs. Laura kindly came along to our home for the gallery viewing to save us the trip with our little one, which was very kind.

YOUR QUESTIONS

See below for answers to some frequently asked questions, if anything below isn’t covered please get in touch and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.

When to book?

Maternity

A maternity photo shoot can be booked one month prior to the due date. I offer maternity shoots in my home studio or outdoors depending on the weather. A partner is more than welcome to attend the session and join in the fun.

After the session I make the images available for you to view and choose.

 

Newborn

As soon as you know you’d like a newborn photo shoot with me please do get in touch. Sessions ideally take place in the first 2 weeks after birth when babies are still sleepy and can sleep through the session! However timings can be flexible.

After the initial enquiry we pencil in a date and time. I make the price list available from the beginning upon request.

 

Older Babies

These sessions are for babies older than one month and are ideal if you missed the newborn baby stage. These can take place in my home studio or at your home, or outdoors weather permitting.

how to book

To reserve a slot I ask for a session fee of £50, paid in advance through a bank transfer.

Before the shoot

Once the booking is confirmed I will send a confirmation email and I will get in touch over the phone to discuss the session. I will also send you some notes on how to get baby ready for the session.

What happens on the day?

Newborn

After you arrive in my home studio, I recommend you feed the baby so that the baby settles into sleep. I will then take the baby ready for the photos, with a number of set-ups and if you wish at the end I will take family photos.

Older Babies

I will have a number of set-ups ready for the shoot.

I will take a number of shoot of the baby and with the parents, with variety.

What happens after the shoot?

I edit the images for the final preview and we book a date together for the viewing of the photos.

Usually images are made available after the shoot within a couple of weeks.
