NEWBORNS

During the newborn stage your baby grows and changes so quickly, this stage is fleeting, emotional & a time you will always want to remember. That's what newborn sessions are all about, capturing the innocence and newness of your  perfect little bundle, so you can remember just how tiny and precious your baby really was.

I like to create a calm and peaceful environment during my newborn sessions, which is why my studio is designed to make you feel relaxed. My studio, is filled with lots of unique props, they are all safe, organic materials, and have been sourced from all over the world, I only use the highest quality items for my sessions, but everything is choosen to give a beautiful organic feel to your images, with main focus being on your beautiful baby!

 

Sessions are typically held between 5-14 days old, as that is when baby is most likely to be easily posed etc. I do take older babyies, so do feel free to get in contact regardless to discuss. 

I want every client to walk away having had a lovely experience, and aim to provide a top class experience before, during and after your session, therefor every little detail is thought off to make your experience memorable! I absolutely love what I do, thank you for thinking of having me capture these memories for you.

My pricing is up front and transparent, and listed below, a deposit of £49, is taken to secure your slot, and the rest of your package is choosen on the day of your session. Wall art, extra prints & products, are available for purchase after viewing, but there is zero pressure. I have developed my packages to suit all budgets. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

F A Q 's

When should I book my newborn session?

I advise that you book your session while you are still pregnant, from whenever you feel comfortable, most people book around their 16-20th week of pregnancy. While I will do my best to accommodate last minute bookings, to ensure the very best service it is essential for me to pencil in your due date well ahead of your baby's arrival.

What is the best age to photograph a newborn?

Newborns are best photographed within the first 1-2 weeks of life. During this time babies will usually hold some of the natural curl and flexibility from when they were in the womb. Those first weeks work best to get peaceful, sleepy and poses, however older newborns can still do well in these sessions, so please don't be put of and just get in touch and we will figure out a session that suits you.

Newborn sessions typically start between 10am and 11am, I have comfy seating, tea, coffee, water and snacks so you can sit back and enjoy! I have some little toys to keep younger siblings entertained, but would recommend when possible that younger siblings come at either the beginning or end of session for their shots, as newborn sessions, can be long & it will also get hot in the studio so that baby is comfortable.

Where are newborn sessions held?

All newborn sessions take place at my home studio in Cregagh area, Belfast but if circumstances do not allow that, then I might be able to accommodate and come to you.

How long does a newborn session last?

Sessions typically last around 2-3 hours, depending on how hungry or sleepy baby is feeling. I want you to feel completely relaxed and enjoy every moment of your session without feeling rushed or overwhelmed;  which is why I allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling. 

Do you have props (like baskets, hats etc.)?

I do have a lot of props in my studio, but I prefer not to use big bright hats, knitted characters etc. My style is clean, simple, and organic although I do love colour and aim to provide a varied gallery so you get the images you want! I always like to include a neutral set-up during every session so the focus is on the baby, they are timeless and never look dated. Please have a look at my studio pictures in the about section or at some of my work, which will give you a better idea of what I have to offer.

What happens after a session?

I typically provide parents with a one image sneak preview of their gallery within 48 hrs of their session. I then invite you back for a viewing session, so you can come along have a cuppa, to make your selections within 2-3 weeks (this can be a bit longer if booking before in lead up to holidays.  This also allows you to view your gallery, and select your digital images, prints or order beautiful wall art to display in your home. We can arrange this appointment during your newborn session if you would like to plan ahead or I will get in touch to arrange around 1 week after.

Do you offer wall art?

Yes I do! I offer a wide range of wall art, including, large framed prints, canvases, wooden birch pieces, multi-aperture frames and albums. All my products are of a very high quality, and are provided by professional print labs, with quality that cannot be bought in high street stores. I can send you pricing information on request, extras are optional, but the WOW factor is in the print! I offer packages on products as well as individual prices with extremely good value.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes, please contact to enquire.

When do we pay? 

A session fee of £49 secures your due date, which we amend to suit once baby arrives, and is deducted from your chosen package. Package choice can be decided closer to your session. Wall art & extras is paid upon ordering after viewing your gallery (optional in addition to package).
