“Relaxed baby photography in the comfort of your own home”
After nine months of anticipation your newest addition has finally arrived and there are many magical moments ahead. Every day your new baby changes and it’s like with a blink of an eye and your baby is finding their feet and exploring the big new world. Ten tiny toes, dimples and wrinkles, their delicate features and sweet expressions and scent, a newborn embodies so much innocence that I love to capture so that this fleeting moment can be timelessly treasured.
For me newborn babies represent purity, nature and joy and I love to capture an essence of all three through my photography. You will get the beautifully timeless, simple images that is all about your baby. Their tiny features and little expressions, nothing else, just the purest imagery.
THE EXPERIENCE & HOW I SHOOT
These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home where you and baby are most relaxed. Photographing in your home creates a personal feel to your photographs and the more personal items that are involved, the more special the images will be. I like to incorporate jewellery, favourite books and home made blankets.
Newborn sessions can take approximately 3 hrs and for twins or triplets up to 4hrs. With newborns, some fuss and crying is to be expected. This allows time for feedings, nappy changes & plenty of cuddles in between. It’s important not to get discouraged if your baby is feeling unsettled, it is hard work for a baby to be so cute and they set the timetable.
WHEN TO BOOK
It is extremely important to schedule a session within the first 2 weeks your baby is born.It is within this time frame that the baby is able to sleep most soundly and capable of being posed in several positions without too much fuss. Inquiring about a session as soon as possible is necessary to make sure these dates are available.
THE COST & WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
The session fee for a Newborn photography shoot is £95 – please allow up to 3 hours. For twin or triplet sessions this will be up to 4 hours and is £125. This is payable in full upon booking.
Once ready for viewing, I will present you at home with a slideshow of your beautiful images set to music. I will help to design and create the perfect frame or album to showcase your favourite images. A selection of sample products will be available to view, please discuss any specific requirements at time of booking.
You will have a secure online gallery with password that you can share with friends or family. Prints and digital downloads are available to purchase through the online store.
I have a variety of wall display products and a handcrafted fine art folio within my sample collection. There is a choice of frames and sizes and I will help you to design and create your own masterpiece. The final product price will vary according to style, frame and size but as a guide here are the products within my sample collection;Fine Art Triple Folio £175 The perfect size to stand on display or tidied away as a keepsake, the fine art folio is a delight and one of my signature products within the collection. Each of the three sleeves measures 13″ x 13″ and can showcase three 8″ x 10″ images or there are a number of mount options to include multiple images. The fine art folio has a choice of 15 cover colour options and I have a swatch sample so you can see and feel the textures. 20″ x 24″ Multi Frame in Wood Whitewash £300 I wanted to create a product that showcases the purity of newborn portraiture and by using a whitewashed wood I believe I have done so with this beautiful timeless piece. You want to see those tiny hands and feet and this multi image product wonderfully captures all your babies features. My framed products are created by a British company that have been framing for over 35 years. Their experience in the field of framing is unrivaled and the quality in their workmanship is unquestionable. 7″ x 7″ Story box trio £190 Simple, elegant and extremely versatile this string of connected box frames are very popular. This unique product is truly effective in appearance and lends itself particularly well to newborn photography but works brilliantly with maternity and family portraits. There are five natural frame mouldings to choose from, Dark Brown, Black Wash, White Wash, Bare Ash Wood and Pine.
These are my signature products designed specifically for newborn photography, however I do offer a range of wall display products that will work perfectly and can tailor make any item in my sample range to suit your requirements. I would love to bring some of my signature pieces to your home for viewing.
If you are expecting and would like to book either a maternity shoot, newborn or both then please contact me.
Always with Love.
