Capture those first precious moments of your baby’s life with one of our newborn portrait sessions. Becoming a family or welcoming a new addition is a fleeting moment to cherish, gone all too soon. This is something we are passionate about preserving for you – creating gorgeous artwork to add to your family’s story.
When is the best time for a newborn session?
We recommend that newborn sessions are held at between 5 & 14 days old – the 10th day is ideal. Your little bundle of joy is likely to be sleepy and still curled up – perfect for capturing those precious images
When should I book my newborn baby shoot?
You will have a million things to think about when your baby arrives and so we advise that you book your newborn session early to secure your space at the studio. Of course we understand that your new arrival may not stick to schedule and so we are flexible in accommodating changes to ensure that you visit us at the optimum time.
What if my baby is older than 14 days?
With a newborn, the timing of the portrait is absolutely critical, so call the studio today to talk through the options
What can I expect from the newborn session?
We allow longer for our newborn sessions. That ensures that the whole family is relaxed and gives time for feeds, naps & changes mid-shoot as necessary. Our photographers are perfectly equipped to handle all eventualities and we have many stories from newborn shoots, we’ve seen it all so there is no need to worry about a thing!
Can we have some family portraits too?
Whilst your new arrival will be the star of the show, our newborn shoot is a golden opportunity for some family portraits as well. We know that for some new mums that might be a daunting thought, but come along to the shoot prepared for a few family images – you’ll be really pleased you did.
What should we wear?
We’ll advise you what to wear to suit the style of portraits you want to create at your session. As a rule of thumb it’s best to choose simple, timeless clothing so that your portraits stand the test of time and soft neutral colours compliment young skin.
Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes, all sessions are by appointment only and we take a £50 refundable deposit for every shoot to guarantee your booking.
Can I book a photoshoot for my someone else?
Portrait photography is a very personal service, the parents must book their own session for their baby. However, you can purchase a gift voucher for them to use from our online shop.
Do you airbrush the photos?
We use flattering lighting and poses to make sure that everyone looks and feel great in your portraits. However, we can soften blemishes and remove bruises etc if requested.
How do I order my photos?
You’ll be able to view and order your images straight after your photoshoot while the whole family is with us. In your private viewing we’ll show you all the portraits on our HD projector and your consultant will guide you through the options and help you design your personal portrait collection.
How can I present my photos?
We offer a hand-picked collection of wall art and bespoke albums to choose from. Most families choose a striking image to hang on the wall as a constant reminder of their new arrival or a selection of all their favourites to be bound into a book as a very special family heirloom.
When will I receive my finished order?
Everything will be ready for collection within 6 weeks of ordering. However, if you’re working to a deadline for a birthday or anniversary then we’ll do all we can to expedite your order.
