I have a beautiful custom built studio in the South of Birmingham by Longbridge town centre my newborn sessions are shot in my studio or close to my studio outdoors if thats your preference.
My newborn shoots are very relaxed and calm, babies are gently posed and shot on sets and colours that are themed to match your tastes or homes, all my newborn shoots can included parent and sibling shots at no additional charge.
The newborn shoots are between 1 and 3 hours to allow baby plenty of time for cuddles and feeds.
After many years of a being a mobile newborn photographer, I have found that being in a studio environment is the perfect situation. Not only does it give you the comfort of being in a relaxed environment where everything is on hand to ensure your baby will be safe and comfortable, all props are available and interchangeable should baby not settle in a particular prop or we feel the colours do not suit baby. Many returning clients from my “mobile days” have enjoyed the experience of the studio visit far more than having their home disrupted with with lots of props and equipment which can take over an entire room. It does also mean being in a studio environment, I will have some sets ready for your arrival based on your chosen colour scheme so all focus is on baby (always a cuddle first).
How long will the shoot take? Sessions usually can last anywhere between 1-3 hours. I allow time for baby to feed, become settled and fall into that deep sleep that is needed for some poses. To enable babies to reach this point I always start all of my sessions wrapped and use props to suit your chosen colour scheme. When baby is fully settled and asleep babies are moved to the beanbag for the more “curled up” poses.
Once I have achieved a varied gallery of all poses that baby is comfortable with (including family and sibling images if required) the session will end. No sessions are ever rushed and we can only go with what baby is happy with.
What if baby won’t settle? As mentioned above, I am a baby-led photographer. I will always do my best to get your baby to be as relaxed as possible and into that deep sleep. Very rarely, some babies just dont settle and if this is the case we will take some beautiful awake images of your baby. If in the very rare circumstances baby is ill or completely unsettled then it would be entirely possible to reschedule for a date in the near future when baby will be more at ease – however this has not happened yet!
What poses and props should we expect? I describe my newborn photography as natural. The poses I use are poses that a baby would naturally be able to put themselves into. Any props that are used are always comfortable and safe as babies safety is always paramount. I use a variety of cushions and support pillows to ensure that babies are always supported in no matter what position or prop. I have a variety of props that I have sourced over the years. Before your session you will receive a questionnaire asking what particular colours you would like me to use along with any props that you have seen on my website or facebook. Using this information I will then create a look that is unique to you.
Are parent and sibling images taken? Parent and sibling images are included in your session only if you wish (don’t feel obligated to and there is no pressure for parents images to be taken. Depending on how young the sibling is there are a few options on poses whilst ensuring that baby is always safe. Family images can be as posed or as relaxed as you wish. These are your images of your family! For parents that may feel a bit sleep deprived and not at there best, a very simple silhouette family image is ideal! If you are thinking of having family images included in your session please do not hesitate to let me know what family images you would like for you and your family.
When should I book? The best time to book your newborn session is before baby arrives, anytime between 12 and 20 week scan, i will get you penciled into my diary and I reserve a floating date each week around your due date till baby arrives, then once baby arrives if you contact me as soon as you can and i will get your session scheduled before baby is 4 weeks old. If you are looking to book and baby is already over 2 weeks old as it takes 2/3 weeks to fit you in please contact me first to see if I can fit you in.
