newborns and babies
The most precious of ages, as it only lasts such a short time, but is the very beginning of so much love and tenderness that lasts a lifetime. I love everything about these little beings, and love being there to capture them in their tiny beauty.
I have personally found that Newborn sessions work best and are the least disturbing to your baby the earlier they can take place, So I aim to do the sessions between day 5 and 7.
Baby sessions can be of any age, but particular favourites are sitter age (around 6 months) or first biirthday.
See below for newborn session details
Please note that all the images in this gallery are from Deluxe sessions, if interested in Newborn Basic session please see my lifestyle page, for examples.
My style is quite minimal and timeless
The session takes approximately 3 hours, with 2 hours of shooting time. Leaving lots of time for setting up studio, and settling and positioning of your baby.
The home visit requires your address, phone number, and approximately 2 -3 metres of space, for setting up a backdrop and either studio lights or the use of good natural light.
I endeavour to shoot 3-4 different types of shots, depending on how settled your baby is, moving through lots of cute poses and capturing details.
Sibling, parents and pet shots are encouraged and welcome.
There is no need for worries of wetting etc, as everything is covered and all washable.
Setting a time:
I endeavour to be setting up as baby is having a feed and then settling baby for a sleep and starting the shoot. So the day before I check if baby is following any pattern of feeding and sleeping and we set a time based on that.
In cooler weather I use a little heater to keep them warm and comfortable, and it is good if the room is comfortably warm.
White noise sound is played, to cover any noises and helps to soothe baby into a dreamy state.
There is plenty of time for settling your baby and feeding and changing them as they need.
I either start with their solo shots on my posing pod or family cuddles, depending on how settled your baby is.
