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 enlargements 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.
What products do you offer?
I offer a wide range of wall art, including, large framed prints, canvases, wooden birch pieces, acrylic's, multi-aperture frames and albums. Digital images can also be purchased. I offer packages that include a variety of each to cater to all budgets 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.
When purchasing, I can guide you through what might suit you best, so that the professional images you have paid for will displayed in your home, and not left on a USB in a drawer.
