I strongly advise that you book your new born shoot in with me as soon as possible. Ideally straight after your 20 week scan. I only take on a limited amount of shoots each month. This allows for not only an amazing photoshoot experience but also excellent customer service, which is equally important.
I offer new hour long mini new born photoshoots which include a special rate digital file collection (baby only shots and baby needs to be under two weeks old). These shoots are pre paid upon booking and sent over to you by a link (no need to return to a viewing of your images) I will select the best ten (these images will be pre planned by us before the shoot). Shooting fee is £39 (instead of £59 as only up to an hour long).
New born Shoot fee ~ £59 (2-3 hours)
Twin New born Shoot fee ~ £79
Triplet New born Shoot fee ~ £129
Home Shoot fee ~ £199 Relaxed lifestyle images. (very limited availability – diary permitting-milage will be added).
*** Please note the shoot fees do not include any products or digital files.
Posed, sleepy new born images can only be shot in the studio. Lifestyle new born shoots can be shot in your home.
How things work:
- An initial telephone and online pre consultation form will be conducted.
- Your newborn shoot will be scheduled for a morning shoot.
- Posed images will be taken of your baby (with or without/props).
- Natural images taken of your baby. Awake shots (depending on baby).
- Post production and your gallery will be prepared a week after your session.
- You will return to view your images to the studio and place your order.
- Payment will be due at this appointment. Payment plans are possible.
If you would like a home shoot, images will be of a more relaxed lifestyle vibe. Partners, siblings and your dog/s can be included in your new born shoot. (Home shoots are very limited and depend on current work load at the time of enquiry).
You can not schedule your new born shoot too early. We can book a tentative date in the diary and then work on the specifics after your baby has arrived. My new born shoots always start late morning and are unhurried, totally private and relaxed allowing time for your baby’s needs.
The ideal time for a new born shoot is between 7 to 28 days old. During these early days I am able to capture those really cute curled up sleepy poses. This is when your baby is very easy to manoeuvre as their ligaments are still soft and flexible. Awake shots can also be captured.
Do still contact me if your baby is already older than a month as I may be able to fit you in due to babies arriving early and late. The ideal maximum age for a new born shoot is 6 weeks old. This age can be a bit more challenging but NOT impossible with my many years of experience. I have accomplished many of the same cute images of babies up to the age range 5 to 12 weeks although if you want to almost guarantee those curled up, sleepy images you will need have the shoot before your baby is 28 days old.
Very premature babies, twins, triplets or quads can be up to 8 to 12 weeks old if they have been in hospital care up until this point. If they haven’t they will need to be photographed straight after they have beed discharged to go home or within a 4 to 6 week period from birth.
