All props, wardrobe, styling and set-up are provided with your newborn photography session fee. Space heaters, warmers and hand sanitizers are always used with the safest precautions taken for your little one.
I like to allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling during your session so depending on the baby and package chosen, please plan to be here between 2-4 hours depending on photography session chosen. There are some snacks and drinks available.
SCHEDULING YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION
If you have booked a newborn session, I have your due date down as the approximate session date. However, as we all know, babies come when they want to come! So, in order to fit you in during that first two weeks, please contact me within the first 3 days of birth to schedule your newborn session.
ARRIVING AT THE STUDIO
Bathe your baby with either a full water bath or a wet cloth wipe for some awake time. Preferable keep baby awake for one hour before your newborn photography session.
When you arrive for your session, I will have you undress baby down to their diaper and a swaddle blanket only and take your time to nurse/feed him/her. This helps not only fill their tummy, but also relax. The diaper and loose swaddle will make for easy removal without waking baby back up.
I like to allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling during your session so depending on the baby and package chosen, please plan to be here between 2-4 hours. There will be water, tea and snacks available during the session and we will take everything nice and slow and your baby will be the centre of attention.
WHAT TO WEAR
Please wear cool and comfortable clothing in layers as the studio will be nice and warm so your baby feels comfortable and hopefully sleeps through most of our session.
For family pictures:
Natural colours and tones always photograph well and
please avoid logos and patterns, solid coloured clothes are best. And just in case there are any small accidents, bringing an extra set of clothes is always a good idea
Baby may pee, poo, or spit up on my blankets/props – please do not worry! It’s all washable and I am not concerned in the least. I don’t want you to be either!
