BOOK YOUR NEWBORN IN ADVANCE
Why should I pre-book my newborn photo shoot?
Every baby that comes into the studio is a blessing, I love to have cuddles and capture the perfect moment for this beautiful baby's parents, to look back on for a lifetime. It is very hard to turn away these precious babies when I am fully booked up!
When are the photo shoots done?
These gorgeous sessions are done before the baby is 2 weeks old. Why? Thats because newborn photography poses are based on womb poses! Your baby is used to being all curled up in your womb, they are so used to being in these poses, they are comfortable with me moving them! After 2 weeks your baby has gotten used to being outside of your womb and is stretching out more and doesn’t like being curled up as much, so it is a lot harder for me to get them into those lovely newborn poses that you’re wanting! After 2 weeks babies are also more alert, before 2/3 weeks they sleep (up to 17 hours a day!) a lot and this enables us to flow through the poses without disturbing them as they are dreaming away!
Why I have to turn people away
During the busier months I get booked up in advance. If your newborn is not pre booked I cannot leave open spaces for you. I already have some newborns pre booked in as well as other photo shoots like cake smashes and family shoots and weddings! I take on a set number of newborns every month in advance and I make sure that I have free days to fit them in once they are born, last minute bookings sometimes only give me a 4 day time frame to fit them in and it just is not possible as I can’t move around other shoots with not much notice!
When can I book?
Anytime after your 20 week scan! I take a £20 deposit and your due date and add it to our diary, all you have to do is let us know (as soon as possible!) once baby has arrived.
