Newborn sessions are best done within the first two weeks of baby's life, as this is when babies are at their sleepiest, and sleep deeply enough to allow us to pose them. They also tend to lose their gorgeous scrunched up look after a couple of weeks! However I am happy to photograph slightly older newborns too. Newborn photography sessions last between 2-3 hours and I only schedule one a day so you won't be rushed.
I offer the following two options for newborn photography:
Baby Only Package: £175 which includes a disc with a minimum of 15 edited images (if you have an older sibling under 3 years old you can have 1-2 images included in this package but the primary focus of the session is the baby only, and there will not be any parent shots in this package as this involves a different studio set-up)
Family Package: £225 which includes family and/or older siblings shots. This package provides you with around 25 edited images and is perfect if you want a good mixture of baby and family pictures. I aim for around 10 family shots and 15 baby only shots.
I specialise in offering beautiful digital composite images so if there is something that is special to you as a family, let me know and I will do my best to create you a unique image that means something personal to you.
The "My First Year" package gives you three photo-shoots covering the major milestones of your baby's first year. It includes a newborn session, a "sitter" session (for when baby is able to sit up comfortably by themselves) and a birthday cake smash. This package, which can be paid in full in advance or in two installments six months apart, gives you a discount of approximately 5% when compared to booking the three photo-shoots separately.
My First Year 1: Newborn Only, Sitter Studio Session, Simple Cake Smash: £390 (£415 when booked separately)
My First Year 2: Newborn & Family, Sitter Studio Session, Simple Cake Smash: £440 (£465 when booked separately)
