Maternity & Newborn Photography
Having had 3 babies of my own I know exactly how special and precious this time of your life is… and how conscious a new mum can also be of her pregnant then new post baby body! I do feel it is really important to capture baby and new mum together and will discuss with you exactly what you want and how you feel to photograph you in the most comfortable and flattering way. For baby photographs, I normally take a mixture of baby with mum, and dad or family (that's if you want those), as well as your new bundle on their own which includes close ups of their hands and feet so that you can remember how tiny they once were.
It is entirely up to you at what age you would like the photographs taking. Some like their photographs taken within the first couple of weeks of life, when they are at their smallest and when their newborn sleeps for long periods of time. Other parents prefer for their baby to be slightly older, so that a fully rested and refreshed mum can enjoy participating in photographs with their baby who may be more alert with eyes open wide.
Every photo shoot and every baby are different and even at such a young age your baby may have a different idea to the direction the photoshoot takes, so we have to be flexible and embrace their already established personalities!
I would recommend photographs in the comfort of your own home in your own familiar surroundings, so that you don’t have to worry about the full scale operation of leaving home. Its not a problem if we end up having to pause for a nappy change or quick feed if needed as your baby is the most important thing, so we work around their ever changing routine in a very relaxed way.
Your photo session is relaxed and flexible with a newborn and will usually last between 1-2 hours, though I promise you the time just disappears!
Your will be able to access and view your images from the comfort of your own home at some point after the photoshoot. I do not believe in pressure selling, hence why I like to give people the opportunity to look through their photographs at leisure, to then select your treasured final images.
There is just one price of £200 that includes the booking fee, session and 10 edited images on USB.
There is an option to buy additional edited images and professional quality products such as a printed Story book, Framed photographs, Canvases and Wall Acrylics at a separate additional cost.
I do travel to all areas but you may want to contact me, using the envelope icon on the top right of this page, with your location of choice as I may have to add on additional travel costs depending on where it may be.
I usually edit the image in colour or black & white depending on what I feel suits the image best but I take into account any preferences you may have. We can discuss this further on your shoot.
