Teeny Tinies – Treasuring the early days
These sessions are some of my favorite. I love newborns’ little tummies, wispy hair and tiny toes and fingers. The best time to do these photographs is when your baby is 5 – 14 days old. This is because they are still quite ‘pliable’, they generally sleep a lot, and colic and baby acne have not yet set in.
I try to be a little more ‘flexible’ with the dates of these shoots as things don’t always go according ‘to plan’. I generally book them for 5 days after your due date and change them if necessary, babies seldom come when they are expected.
These sessions are generally a little longer as we have to work at your newborn’s pace. They average between 2– 4 hours. We need to allow time for feeding, changing and cuddling. New parents can also be tired and a bit sore so I don’t want to rush things. These are lovely, gentle sessions and really special shoots, I highly encourage them.
These sessions should be booked as early as possible after your 20 week scan, this will ensure your booking and assist me in managing the diary. If however your baby is due fairly soon or already born feel free to call me, I may be able to fit you in. In order to offer my clients the best service possible and because I shoot a lot of newborns and it can be ‘unpredictable’, with me having to move things around a little each week; I only allow limited number of sessions per week. To avoid dissapointment it is best to book as early as possible.
Baby, Children & Family Shoots
Creating a lifetime of memories
I’m a mother and have been photographing children for more than 14 years, so I try to book sessions with naps and feeding times in mind to make sure everyone is at their best.
These shoots are light-hearted and fun, with a bit of gentle direction. Each session is different, with the unique dynamic that flows naturally between you and your family. Some children like to sing, make silly noises, tell jokes, dance, jump around, clap hands, play peekaboo and generally have a fun time, while others might just want to sit and talk quietly or play with toys while my camera discreetly captures them.
Capturing the joy in the every day
These sessions are about capturing children at play in a favourite place, so they are on location and generally use natural light. The shoot might take place in your home, at a park or on a beach. I really encourage parents to think outside the box – the more unconventional the location, the better! I love interesting alleys, doors with peeling paint and other interesting places and textures. If you have a specific theme in mind, let me know so we can take a few props along and really have some fun.
If you would like to book in, please use the contact form on my page or email me at email@example.com with your due date so I can check my availability and once confirmed you will be able to pay in deposit of £50 which will secure your space. The rest of the payment is due to be paid on the day of the session.
