Newborn Photographer in Suffolk
Unique, Individual and Captive Life style newborn photography
Oh how I love a life style newborn photo shoot!
I am fully trained in newborn photography and working with babies at such a young and delicate age.
My preference is to work in your home. This is where you feel most relaxed and at ease. There is then no pressure for you to leave the home and your newborn’s comfort zone.
I always bring a large selection of props to work with and use soft, natural textures and light.
Sessions are most definitely not rushed, taking anything from 2-4 hours to allow for feeds, changes and snuggles! I have found sessions generally work best in the mornings when babies are naturally sleepier and calmer.
Personally, I love to involve all family members during the session. I love to document little ones fine details, those close up squashy features and capture those new found bonds between you all.
What makes the gallery beautiful is just photographing your love!
Here are some questions that I get asked regularly before your newborn session:
When should we book you for our newborn session and what if baby arrives early or later?
If you are at least 5 months pregnant now then please get in touch with me by sending an email and we can plan it properly. If you have had your baby already and its age is not over 6 weeks then contact me asap, I might be able to fit you in the same week.
I usually suggest to book your newborn baby for a photoshoot 1-2 weeks after your due date.
Generally newborn sessions are for babies of age up to 8 weeks, life style sessions can be extended until 12 weeks sometimes, but there is a chance for the baby to be awake all the time. The best time for a newborn session is 1-3 weeks of age, where they generally are sleeping a lot. Premature babies might need extra time to feel up for the session, you have to let me know if your baby came earlier then 2 weeks before the due date. Babies who decided to arrive much later than planned usually should be photographed according by due date.
I take nonrefundable booking fee of £50 to secure your slot, but don’t worry you don’t lose it if the baby is late or you have to reschedule session due to medical conditions, your booking fee moves along with your booking date. I would ask you to keep me updated till the point baby is arrived and are ready for some beautiful photos.
What should we wear and how should we prepare our home for the session?
Life style sessions are very natural and relaxed, please do not over think them too much. Clothing wise please go for simple white top, or something light in colour like grey cardigan and leggings, or dress if you have one. Keep it light as possible. Because we are indoors, it can be very dark especially during the winter days, light tones of your clothing will help so much to get that perfect image. I always bring lots of props for the baby: clothing, hats, headbands, blankets etc. but you are very welcome to get ready your own baby gown and little soft toy to make it very personal and unique, but keep in mind simple is always the best.
How to prepare your home for the session? This question comes up very often, but you don’t need a massive room with perfect design, all I need is a floor space near the window and your bed with light colour bedding. Just keep it all tidy and as less things around the room as possible. Usually I photograph in a living room or baby Nursery and we go to the bedroom for the few shots on a bed.
Keep is simple and please don’t stress over it too much. If you really not sure just talk to me about it.
How long will it take to receive our online gallery?
It generally takes 2-4weeks for me to make your final gallery. As soon as it is ready you will receive password protected online gallery, where you will be able to view, choose, share with your family and friends your images. I keep online gallery open for you for at least 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to make your choice or download your purchased images.
Can we purchase any extras like digital files, prints, wall art etc. after the session?
Online gallery allows you to purchase extra digital files if you have not bought all the gallery, as part of your package. You also can buy prints and wall art from professional printing lab, usb etc. Your family and friends can also place orders the same way directly from me.
