Your Questions About Creative Newborn Sessions

NEWBORN SESSION FAQ

01 – When is the best time to have a Creative Newborn Session?
During the first week of your newborn’s life is the best time to photograph them, ideally between 5-12 days old. Babies this young are still happily curled up and sleep deeply enough to be safely posed in your favourite poses and props. Older babies are bigger and their bodies become more comfortable in straighter positions. Should your baby be a little older we can still take some amazing images, they would just be posed differently to accommodate them.  
02 – How long does a Creative Newborn Session at your studio take?

Newborn sessions last between 1-3 hours and start at 10am.
Here you can relax, watch a movie, watch me work and drink tea while I photograph your sweet baby between cuddles.
My studio is located just of the M4 at junction 34, so it doesn’t take long to get there from Swansea, Cardiff, Cowbridge, Bridgend and Newport.

 

 

03 – What should we wear on the day?

My cosy home-studio is kept warm and snug for your baby. I always suggest parents wear loose-fitting, comfortable layers so you can peel them off if you get warm. My session planning brochure containing handy tips for a smooth flowing session and it will also include a section with helpful advice on what to wear for your photographs. You will receive it when I confirm you have booked a session with me.

For baby, I have a gorgeous collection of wraps, outfits and props which will enhance and individualise your photographs. If you have a particular item or blanket, you would like included. Please bring it so we can create personalised images that are unique to your family.

04 – Will you take photographs of parents and siblings at a Creative Newborn Session?

I encourage the love connection between everyone in the family, and I adore parent and sibling cuddles in my photographs. You can trust that I will be kind and flattering to you; my parent poses do not require eye contact with the camera or show mummy tummy at all.  Also, any temporary spots, scratches or dark circles are erased in post-production.

The home-studio is a small space, so for a safe and calm session environment, I recommend that I photograph willing toddlers with baby first. Should your little one need more time, we can retry at the end of a session.

It’s vital that you feel confident and excited about your photos with me and the phone is the best medium for us to communicate.
