My newborn & baby photography, is about the pure joy of creating images that will last a lifetime. And I truly LOVE to see the joy of parents when they see the end results. A photo, I believe, is something that stops a moment in time. To help us remember how you felt….right at that point in time. Their smell, their touch, their innocence and true beauty of being a newborn. I love to create this record of art for my clients to cherish every part and moment of their newborn – from their beautiful eyelashes, squishy lips, and soft wisps of hair, to their tiny hands and feet. In years to come, my images will take you back to the day your newborn was tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand and the days when they feel asleep on your chest. I am an easy going photographer. While I will always have a plan for our session together, I let your newborn take the lead and very much work to your baby’s needs. If you have anything in particular you’d like in your session, I certainly welcome your suggestions.
From your ideas on the style and type of images you’re after, to the use of props in your session, along with colours and materials you’d like in your photographs. My aim for every session I do is to produce art quality images that become signature pieces for your home. I love shooting maternity,newborn & baby photography. I have been photographing and handling newborns for well over 10 years, and your baby’s safety is of the utmost importance to me.
A newborn session can take 3-4 hours, we won’t rush at all and simply follow baby’s lead! We will spend lots of time simply soothing and snuggling your little one. It is very important to remember that your baby will not perform on demand, experience has shown if you start stressing about the baby not settling, the baby will pick up on it, so please remember, chill out and relax! In the time leading up to your session, I ask that you play and interact with your awake baby lots. We want baby to be nice and sleepy during the session, not ready to play! A baby with a full tummy is a happy, sleepy baby. Please be prepared to feed baby a few times during your session. I recommend you wait to feed baby whilst i’m setting up, before the session starts (if this is possible). Please have some extra wipes, burp cloths, and maybe even a spare shirt as almost all parents get peed or pooped on during a session. It’s hard to avoid with a naked newborn around, and please don’t get flustered if this does happen. Your baby isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last. The room needs be nice and toasty warm, as we want baby to be comfortable enough to sleep in the nude. You may want to dress in ‘light’ clothes, so as not to get too hot yourselves and stay comfortable. I can also use ‘white noise’ as background noise as a way of settling baby, this has proven to be a great comfort for newborns. Being a mum myself, I will at all times have your baby’s safety and comfort as paramount. When you baby reaches that deep sleep cycle, I will be able to position them into various poses to achieve maximum cuteness! Please jot down a list of newborn poses or shots that you’d like to have with your baby, but remember that we will follow the lead of the baby. Not all babies like certain poses, but I promise we’ll do the best we can!
• Please set aside an entire morning/afternoon for your session • The session involves a lot of down time involving rocking and swaying trying to get your baby soothed. More time is spent doing this than actually taking the photos. • I will handle and pose your baby, but I may need your help if I’m unable to soothe him. I will also need your help with baby’s safety – this is of the utmost importance. • After your baby has been fed and is full and sleepy we will start the session. • I do usually get photos with the parents, whether posed or not, so please be ready for that. • If your baby uses a pacifier, please have it to hand- it can be really helpful. If not, please be on standby with your finger. • Your baby is the boss. If he’s hungry then we will stop everything for him to be fed, however often that is. • If your baby is bottle fed, please be prepared with lots of bottles. Baby’s normally feed more during a session than they normally would because they are being woken up so often. • If you’re after sibling and family shots we will do them first. Most siblings attention span last no more than half an hour so I try to do these shots first before we concentrate on individual baby shots, then the rest of the family have the option of leaving sooner
