How does my newborn session work?

How it works

Around seven days after your photography session you will come back for your viewing appointment. This is your opportunity to view your fully retouched images and choose your photographs and products. After this session we will then order your products and let you know when they have arrived and are ready for you to collect!

It’s time to view your images

6.

On the day of your photography session, you do not need to worry about a thing. When you arrive at our studio we will have a wide variety of drinks and snacks for you to enjoy while we work with your baby to create your beautiful, timeless images for you to enjoy forever. We have a super comfy sofa for you to relax on (and many parents end up falling asleep!).

Your Newborn Photography Experience

5.

Congratulations! Now is the time to book in your photography experience. As soon as you are able to, get in contact with us (drop us a text, give us a ring or shoot over an email – whichever is easiest for you) to let us know when your baby was born and how you are all doing. We will then arrange your photography session for when your baby is around 5-10 days old.

Your baby has been born

4.

When you are around eight months pregnant we will send you out a Studio Guide pack. This will contain all you need to know about all of our different props, backdrops and wraps that you can choose for your session. Together, we will decide on your colour scheme for the session and choose items that you love and work well together.

It’s time to plan your Photography Experience

3.

This is so exciting! We book your due date into our studio diary as a floating date so that we know roughly when your baby will arrive (and I say roughly as only 4% of babies arrive actually on their due date!). You will shortly receive your welcome pack (and a little gift) through the post for you to read through and get excited!

Yay! You’ve booked your due date

Fill in the form below with your details and your due date and Heidi will get in contact with you as soon as possible. We book a limited number of newborn sessions each month to ensure that we can provide a premium level of service for you and your family.

Answers:

It is best to book when you are still pregnant. Most of our families book around their 20 week scan. We only take a limited number of bookings each month to ensure that we give each of our families the best experience possible. Therefore, spaces can fill up quickly!

We book your due date in our studio diary as a 'floating date' and then ask that once baby is born you update us so that we can book in your newborn photography session.

We aim to photograph your baby between 5 and 10 days old. The best time is around day 7. Don't panic though, we can still capture gorgeous images after this time. If your baby is born early or prematurely, we will discuss the best time to photograph them.

Answers:

Our newborn photography sessions take place on weekdays, normally starting around 9.30 in the morning. We have found from our experience that babies tend to sleep better, longer and deeper in the morning.

If you have siblings who you would like to be included but who attend nursery or school at the time of your newborn session, don't worry, we will be happy to book in a shorter, second session after school for your sibling and family photographs.

Answers:

Not necessarily! It is always worth giving us a call and seeing if we have availabilty. Due to the nature of scheduling newborns, sometimes we do have a bit of space. We always encourage newborn sessions to take place within the first 14 days, but we do understand that this isn't always possible. We still love photographing older babies and gorgeous, timeless memories at any age. However, classic newborn poses may not be so easily achieved with an older baby.
