When should I book?
Your session should ideally be booked in advance of your due date and of course the dates will be flexible depending on whether your little one has arrived early or late or on occasion arrives exactly on your due date. It is never too early to book your newborn session as we only take 4 due dates a week so we can ensure availability when all the little babies arrival.
To book you session please contact us to check for availability, if we have your due date available then a £10 non refundable booking fee is required to secure your newborn session, Once your little bundle arrives you then contact us to arrange an exact date and time for your session. Once your baby arrives the newborn session should be held within the first two weeks of their arrival in order to make the most of their long sleeping patterns and their bendiness.
How long will our session take?
During your newborn session we will work with your baby and wait until we manage to nurse them into a deep sleep before starting the session. We would advise you to come to the studio and change your babies nappy and then feed them to ensure a full tummy and a settled baby. Our sessions are relaxed and will take as much time as required, please allow 3 hours for your session
Can Mummy, Daddy and/or siblings be included in the session?
During the newborn session we will capture some family images and also some images with siblings, Although the main focus of your session will be your newborn so these other images will be slotted in throughout the session. If siblings are very young and will become unsettled we would recommend you to get someone to bring them to the session at the beginning and then we can capture some sibling images and then they can go away. Our studio is very near Monster Mania so siblings can always be taken her for a play whilst we capture the remaining newborn images.
Do you use different props?
Your newborn sessions is dictated by your newborn as they will determine what they like, some babies don't like being posed on their tummy, feel unsafe in the hammock or wont settle in props. We have an extensive range of props which we are constantly refreshing and changing and will only pose your newborn in props and poses that they feel comfortable in. If you have any favourite props if you let us know at the start of your session then we can try and incorporate these into your session.
