Newborn or Baby Photo Shoots are specially designed to capture memories of your baby as they grow!
Perhaps you want a memento of those tiny fingers, their bright eyes, their squishy cute legs. Or as they grow and change a reminder of the time they first sat, first walked etc.. Whatever you want to record these Newborn or Baby Photo Shoot sessions are perfect for not missing a thing.
Newborn or Baby Photo Shoot sessions are for baby and parents only; if you would like a session including siblings please ask me about a Family Photo Shoot.
Newborns up to 1 month old:
Newborn sessions are for babies up to 1 month old, but for best results babies should be photographed within their first 17 days, as after this time they begin to lose their newborn ‘curl’ and are less sleepy
Ideally you need to book during your pregnancy as my diary fills very quickly, and I can’t always guarantee late availability.
These babies are usually too old for the sleepy newborn photography, and often too awake and focused to go into that deep sleep required. I find that with this age, the best results we get are with a natural style of session where I will capture photos of baby alone, in addition to some shots with Mom and Dad, and also some breastfeeding shots if desired. I always try to use natural light for these sessions whenever possible.
Babies 4-6m are usually more alert and smiley. Although they can get tired quickly. They also need to sit supported at this age. In these sessions I focus more on their expressions and interactions with mummy and daddy.
Usually by this stage babies are sitting on their own, are more active, fun and smiley. These sessions focus on capturing their great little emerging personalities ad lots of giggles.
Newborn or Baby Photo Shoots are about 1.5 hours long and can take place at my Studio in Sittingbourne High Street or in my Home in Gillingham.
On booking you will be sent an information sheet to help you prepare for the day and make the most of our time together.
Afterwards you will want some mementos of the day and the chance to show off your lovely images. I have various packages available for prints, digitals and wall art for you to choose from with options for every budget.
