ABOUT NEWBORN SESSIONS

FULL NEWBORN: These signature newborn sessions are for posed newborn photography and are ideally for babies aged 4-14 days, but can be taken up to 1 month. Over the 2-3hr session, they will include a range of newborn poses on blankets and props, as well as family portraits and sibling portraits. A full gallery of 20-25 hand retouched images will be shown at your viewing for you to choose which Collection you would like to purchase.

 

The session fee for Full Newborn photography is £99, this does not include any Collections, these are chosen and purchased separately at your viewing and start at £599.

MINI NEWBORN: These sessions are aimed at older newborns, or those who would prefer a simpler style. Mini Newborn Sessions last up to 1hr and focus on just baby. They do not include family or sibling portraits. Parents select one main colour, then baby is wrapped and has a few photographs on the beanbag and in one prop. 

 

The session fee for Mini Newborn Photography is £99, with the remaining Mini Collection balance of £250 due at the time of viewing when you choose your 5 digital images.

Due to the nature of newborn photography, I only offer limited slots per month and availability can be extremely limited. Please book your baby just after your 20 week scan to guarantee a place in my diary. Newborn Sessions are available on weekdays with a £50 additional fee for weekend bookings. All sessions take place at my Maidstone baby studio at postcode ME15. Address supplied upon booking, thank you.

DETAILS

How old does my baby need to be for newborn photography?

Ideally, babies aged 5-15 days are perfect for newborn photography, as they curl into those adorable womb-like poses whilst sleeping. I do photograph older newborns up to one month, too. If your baby is 4 weeks or older and you would still like photography, please get in touch and we can get you booked in for a Baby Session!

Do you offer a Bump to Baby Package? I am interested in Maternity and Newborn photography.

Yes, If both sessions are booked together and both session fees are paid together, you are given £50 credit to put towards your Maternity order.

Do you charge extra for twins?

Not at all. Just please let me know if you are expecting twins or multiples well ahead of your session, as I will book a studio assistant in advance.

What happens in a Full Newborn Session?

A Full Newborn Session is a very calm affair, taken entirely at your baby's pace. Once you arrive, we will confirm your colour palette and look at any props you may be interested in using. Baby will be gently undressed and offered a feed, after which I will begin to work with your little one, gently soothing them as I go. The studio will be set to warm so that your baby will remain comfortable throughout. Sibling photographs and any family family photography is usually shot first. Then I  move through my newborn workflow. I will shoot both beanbag and prop shots, details and pull backs. At all times baby will be well-cared for and safe, their safety and comfort is my priority. If I require assistance, many dads are happy to hold a reflector or steady baby whilst a photograph is being taken and say it is lovely to be involved! Be prepared to love your baby a little more after watching sleep in tiny, curled up poses. There is nothing like it x

Do I need to bring any props or accessories to my newborn photography session?

It is true that I have a prop 'addiction' (!) and indeed, inside the studio you will find an array of hand made props, outfits and accessories to enhance your baby's natural beauty, sourced from around the best newborn crafts people in the world, so there is no need to bring anything. But please feel free to bring in a loved item, such as a small piece of jewellery, shawl or knitted hat if you would like it to be included, too.

When should I book?

Many of my clients choose to book their newborn photography just after their 12 or 20 week scan. This allows me to add your EDD (estimated due date) to the studio calendar well in advance and keep your due date free with a little 'wiggle time' around it, should your baby decide to come a little earlier or later than expected. The exact date of your session is set after baby is born. The session fee of £99 is due at the point of booking to secure your session in my studio diary. 

How will I view my images?

A few weeks after your newborn session, you will be welcomed back to the studio for your viewing appointment. It is a wonderful experience, where you will see your fully retouched images for the first time. It is at this point that you choose which Collection you want to purchase. You will be able to see your fully retouched images on a large screen and in print, to make your choices. A full gallery is typically 20-25 fully retouched images to choose from. A gallery of 10-12 images will be presented for a Mini Newborn Session viewing. 

May I buy additional prints or wall art at the Viewing?

Yes, of course, they make excellent gifts for the nursery, home and for family. 

How is payment made?

Your session fee of £99 is due at the point of booking to secure your session in my studio diary. Payment for your order is taken at the time of your Viewing, which is usually 3-4 weeks after the session date. We accept all major Debit & Credit cards / PayPal / Bank Transfers.  Plus we also offer the option to pay by instalments spread over 3 months (images delivered upon final payment only).

I have further questions

Please contact me through my website contact form, I will be happy to answer your questions ahead of your session,
