NEWBORN BABY PHOTOSHOOTS

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS – I am a professional photographer who specialises in creating beautiful photos. I care deeply that my clients love their photos – but don’t just take my word for it, take a look at the gallery for samples of my newborn & baby photography shoots as well as some of what my clients have had to say.

INCLUSIVE PRICES – With packages designed for all budgets and needs you are bound to get the photos you want at a great clear price.

FOR EVEN THE MOST CAMERA SHY  – I take pride on making even the most camera shy of mums, and often dads, feel & look fantastic.  Whilst my Newborn & Baby Photography shoots are mainly about baby(s), I do also like to capture you as a family.I’ll give you tips before the session on things to do whilst I’m shooting to get the best outcome and to make you and your family look and feel great, which will bring out the natural essence of your family.

NATURAL & AUTHENTIC-  My No.1 aim is to provide you beautiful images of your baby that you’ll love forever, and to build that love for the images in the first place, they need to be a true representation of your baby and of your family, so I always make sure the images produced from your baby’s photo shoot are Natural & Authentic to your family. This is always done in the best natural light possible.

LOCATION – For Newborn & baby sessions it is best to stay at home as this is where baby will be most content. For older babies (sitters & crawlers) you might like to get some location shots as well.  If you would rather not shoot at home you may choose a local park or somewhere along those lines, the most important thing when we are deciding on your shoot location is to go somewhere thats familiar with your family where you all feel comfortable, happy and relaxed.

If you would prefer a studio session my studio in Surrey is private and relaxed.

QUICK TURNAROUND ON PHOTOS – You’ll get your newborn photos via a password protected image gallery within 3 days of your shoot.

FAQ’s

What happens at a newborn session? 

When I arrive at your home, we will have a quick chat to finalise what we want to achieve, We will then decide where would be best for me to set up for the posed photos, the cute individual ones showing baby wrapped and posed in baskets and other props. I will bring the props with me, but you are welcome to add your own as it adds a personal touch.

As well as the posed shots, I will also take lifestyle photos of your family enjoying your baby, this way we get a good variety of images that shows your baby.

 

When Should I Book My Newborn Shoot for?

I recommend your newborn session is booked for when your baby is between 5 and 10 days old, this is when they are at their sleepiest, and we can get those really cute curled up poses. They do also change so quickly so its important to catch them at this precious stage.

My Baby / Newborn shoots are for baby’s up to maximum 6 – 8 weeks old.

If your baby is older I recommend booking one of my family sessions instead.

We should initially schedule your session for 10 days after you baby is due, if baby is more that 5 days early or 5 days late, please let me know as soon as possible and we will rearrange accordingly.

 

Do I need a makeup artist?

It’s totally up to you, but I find a lot of mums enjoy the pamper time and it ensure they are also looking great, after all they have probably spent most of the time getting the rest of the family ready, its only right they get looked after too.

All packages that include hair & makeup will be done by yours truly, I am a fully qualified hair and makeup artist so you are in great hands, you can see my hair and makeup work HERE

For these types of shoot, I like to keep the makeup as natural as possible, of course I will take into account how you normally wear your makeup, after all this is going to be a true representation of you in your day to day life with your new baby.

 

What is retouching?

Professional retouching aka airbrushing, photoshop amongst other terms, is when software os used to edit a photo to enhance and perfect as much as possible.

It is very rare that you will see a photo in a magazine or advertising campaign that hasn’t been edited in some way.

It’s the norm and a very important stage for any professionally produced image, especially when they are to be used professionally. It subtly removes skin blemishes and lines and can even slim body parts etc. This is what gives photos a polished look, whilst still looking natural.

The key is to have it done in a way that it doesn’t look edited at all, almost all the images on my website have been edited to some extent and as you will have seen most are done in a very natural looking way.

 

What should I wear?

Once you are booked you will receive A guide to your photo session! This will have tips on what you should wear, don’t worry you wont have to go shopping specifically for your shoot, unless you want to of course!.

Do am nervous about the kids behaving, I am very camera shy, I don’t like having my pictures taken.

Ok these are all major concerns for a lot if people when it comes to booking a bump, newborn and family session soo to ease these concerns and put you in the best place to be prepared for your shoot, I have created the guide – PREPARING FOR & WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR BABY’s Photoshoot, these will include preparing the kids, preparing your self, what to wear and more.

 

Can we shoot studio or location?

My pregnancy & Baby shoots take place in the comfort of your own home, using natural window light or a pre-agreed location, sometimes both. They can include partners and other children.

My Studio in Surrey is also available as an option .

 

Where is your studio?

My home studio is located in Whyteleafe Surrey, it only 30 mins by train from London Victoria or London Bridge by train. With the choice of 2 stations within a 5 mins walk.

 

Can I show you samples of what I like?

Of course, I love to see your ideas and the direction you want to go, we can use these samples as inspiration or as part of the mood board for your shoot.

 

How do I book a session?

Please fill in a booking enquiry form or send me an email with your requirements, I will then contact you to discuss your need, what y qou want from your images, availability, etc.   I will then send you an email confirming the provisional booking date, time and location as well as cost of your chosen package, so you have a full written quote before you make your deposit payment.

 

How do I pay?

All deposit payments can be made online via Paypal, which I find a great safe option for both parties. Balances can also be made by Paypal, alternatively you can pay by Cash or Card on the day of your shoot, please note there is a 2% charge for card payments not made via Paypal.

 

What happens after the shoot?

After the shoot you will receive your images via a Password protected image gallery within 3 days.

Then you will need to let me know which of the images you would like me to use for your Announcement & Thank you card and prints. (what and how many depends on your chosen package)

It will be easy for you to let me know which ones you have chosen right from the gallery. I will also give you my advice on the ones I think would work best for you.

If you have Prints as part of your package or have ordered some extra, you will need to allow 10 days for prints & cards.

 

Do you offer student discounts?

No unfortunately not at the moment, my prices are already very competitive and as such there isn’t any room for discounts without me making a loss

 

Colour or Black & White?

Personally I like to shoot a variety of both coloured and black and white, this make the images more interesting and varied, however if you have a preference please let me know.

 

Natural light of flash?

I like to shoot with natural light where possible, but of course depending on the type of finale images you would like to achieve I can also work with my variety of  flash lights where needed.

 

What type of printer do you use?

All my prints and products are done via an award-winning, industry-leading professional printing lab. With a huge range of products and prices you are bound to find something perfect for you.
