Those first few days and weeks are mesmerising as you fall in love with your little one, but they pass in a flash. A professional newborn photo shoot captures those first days for you to cherish forever.
Newborn sessions are best planned for when your baby is between 5 and 14 days old, so that he/she has had some time to settle after the birth but is still quite "curly" and sleepy. For this reason, I recommend getting in touch and booking whilst you (or your partner) are still pregnant - I’ll book you into a timeframe according to your due date then, when your baby arrives, we can make a firm date for your session. As the session is run according to your baby's needs, it's usually 2-4 hours long. If your baby is older than 2 weeks, it’s still possible to create beautiful photographs so please do get in touch as soon as possible.
The safety and well-being of your little one is of the utmost importance to me. Along with being a Licentiate of the Master Photographer Association, which is your assurance of quality of service and photography, I also hold the MPA’s Newborn Safety Certificate - I am currently the only photographer in Monmouthshire to have gained this. This is your reassurance that my working methods and practices create the safest environment possible for your new baby. The newborn photography industry is unfortunately currently unregulated - this means that no one checks up on photographers to make sure that they are working safely - but this certification can assure you that your baby will be in the safest hands at my studio.
Newborn photo sessions are currently priced at £75. This includes:
A 2-4 hour session in my home studio. Sessions run according to your baby's needs and are never rushed, and you will have exclusive use of the studio for the duration of your baby’s photo shoot.
Pre-shoot consultation and design. My studio is well-equipped with props, blankets, backdrops and outfits, which will be carefully selected and set up ready for your arrival, according to the colour schemes we'll discuss beforehand.
Retouching by hand of all images.
Your viewing and ordering session, which will take place approximately 2 weeks after your studio session.
Products are then available to purchase separately, and you can see my outline product guide here.
