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 chosen 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 newborns, so do feel free to get in contact to discuss, as nothing is textbook and this information is only meant as a guide, so that the most can be gotten out of your sessions. 

I want every client to walk away having had a truely lovely experience, which is why I limit the amount of sessions I carryout each month, therefor every little detail can be catered for and thought off. I spend so much time behind the scenes creating, editing and sourcing unique props to make your experience as  memorable as it can be! I absolutely love what I do, and have photographed hundreds of newborns, and feel truely blessed to have photographed every single one. 

 

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 paid for on the day off your session. Packages are choosen in advance of your session and I choose and edit the best from every set up, these will be the images you will be presented with at your viewing and ordering appointment.  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.

 

Thank you for considering me to be your photographer!

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 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.

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. 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. Mini sessions last around 1 hour.

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

I do have a lot of props in my studio. 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 have lots of little bonnets, headbands, mini teddies , floral arrangments, furs, props, and backgrounds to choose from. I always like to include a neutral set-up during every session so the focus is on the baby, they are timeless, and suit every decor. 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?

After your session, you will be invited back to your viewing and ordering appointment within 2-4 weeks.  This also allows you to view your gallery , select your included items, order any print enlargemnts and design and order beautiful wall art to display in your home, if you so choose. 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, arcylic's, 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! You are paying for professional images, so it is advised that you order your prints and wall art with myseld, to see that quality through to print. I offer packages on products as well as individual prices with extremely good value.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes, just get in touch, they are pop

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).
