The best time to book is before baby arrives! I suggest contacting me while still pregnant, any time from your 20 week scan to let me know your due date, and then as soon as baby arrives when i will then give you slots for the first 4-14 days and you can choose one which is convenient for you.
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEWBORN?
The best age to photograph a newborn is between 4-21 days following birth, but the sooner the better. During this time frame babies are more likely to sleep soundly when being re positioned, and they still have that beautiful baby curliness which helps positioning.
WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
I provide newborn sessionsat the comfort of your own home with a few props included. I have a portable mobile studio to tranform your home into a mini studio. All I need is a bit of empty floor space.
DO YOU PROVIDE PROPS AND HATS?
Yes, i provide all things needed. I try to keep the style natural and organic. I have speciliazed props and outfits made for newborn session, there is no need to buy anything.
HOW SOON WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE MY PHOTOS?
I preview an image the night of/night after your session at your request. I aim for a turn around time of around 2 weeks for finished galleries. Once I have personally edited your photos, you will get a link to view your gallery to download them to your computer.If your gallery is slightly longer than the stated turnaround time, this does not mean i've forgotten about it. It will mean im still working on your images. Every session is different in its own way and requires different methods of editing depending on various things. I work tirelessly behind the scenes to get galleries to their forever homes as fast as humanly possible. As soon as galleries are finished, i send them straight to your booking email!
CAN I PRINT THE PHOTOS IN THE GALLERY?
Yes you can! Once you have downloaded your images you are free to print them and use them how you wish. It is however illegal to edit or alter them in any way including social media filters. I do recommend getting your products through me to guarantee quality, but you are under no obligation to do so. I am not liable for any prints or products i have not supplied, especially lower quality high street quality printers. The lab i use supply the highest quality, fine art professional products which are best teamed with your professional images.
WHAT IF MY BABY WON'T SLEEP?
Very rarely, a few babies will be more alert. A pacifier might do the trick! However, I am trained and have all the techniques necessary to soothe your baby and provide you with a smooth session. Most times, babies will not even make a peek. Just remember, yout baby feels your anxiety and stress, so relax, sit back and enjoy the session.
CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC POSE?
All babies are different! Some are more comfortable in a pose than others. They run the show and I am always looking for their signs to show me which pose they are comfortable in. I can not and will not make them stay in a pose they are not comfortable in.
CAN I REQUEST SPECIFIC PROPS?
Yes! Every session we will start with 2 to 3 props. There are a few props, however, that is only
available in studio due to its size and difficulty of transporting it.
HOW DO I BOOK?
Please contact me or fill out the book now form. We will go over your due date and
availability. There is a $75 retainer fee required that goes towards your package. If I have availability based on your due date, I will then send you an online contract form to book your session.
