Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book my newborn session?

Most of my clients schedule their sessions once they have received their due date after their 12 week scan. This allows me to book a provisional time a week after your due date which can be changed if we need to.

Booking early means one less thing to worry about when baby is here and also avoids disappointment should I not have spaces once your precious bundle has arrived.

I’ve just had my baby, am I still able to book with you?

Yes, if your baby is still under 14 days of age, please do not hesitate to contact me for last minute availability.

When is the best time to get newborn pictures?

The best time for newborn images is within the first 2 weeks of life. This is when baby is still curled up out of the womb and most settled to get those adorable sleepy poses you see in my gallery.

How long does a newborn session last?

Newborn sessions typically last 3-4 hours. I only ever schedule one newborn session a day so you will not feel rushed, there are no time limits and the session is completely baby led. This allows plenty of time for changes, comforting and feeds if we need to. For this reason I do not recommend you schedule any other appointments on the day of your session.

What is included in a newborn session?

I will come to your home at a date and time scheduled to suit you and photograph your precious bundle within the first 14 days of life. Travel within a 20 mile radius of SN5 is included.  All outfits, hats, headbands and wraps are provided for you to choose from.

Are prints and products included in the session fee?

Sessions with myself are £95 for time and talent only and due at the time of booking. The session fees are non-refundable and do not include any prints or products, these can be purchased separately at your personal viewing and ordering session. All product pricing can be found via the Pricing tab on the menu.

Do you offer online-proofing?

I no longer offer online galleries as I find it a much more personal experience meeting with you when you receive your proofs. I can guide you through the products and help with any questions you may have right then and there.

When can we expect to see our images?

I will schedule to return to your home approximately 7 days after your newborn session at a time to suit you. At this session you will be able to view 15-20 beautifully edited proofs from your session to choose your prints and products from. This is when you will place your order and payment is taken for the products.

Do you offer payment plans?

I do not offer payment plans but I do accept credit card payments that can help you spread the cost of your experience.

My baby has flaky skin, will this be a problem?

Not at all, all of my images are professionally edited to the style you see on this website. Flaky skin, spots, scratches, patchiness and jaundice can all be removed at your request.

What will happen if starts crying or gets fussy?

It is completely normal for your baby to take a while to settle or wake up during a session. I am very experienced in settling babies so you can be assured your precious bundle is in safe hands and we will take as long as it needs to capture those gorgeous sleepy shots that you will treasure forever.

If I have to cancel my photo session, can I reschedule?

Because of the very small window to photograph your newborn (within the first 14 days) it is not likely that I will be able to reschedule your session once the final date is confirmed, I will however always try my best to suit your needs.
