Newborn Sitting Information

Booking

The best time to contact me for your newborn session is before you have your baby. Upon your enquiry after receiving your deposit I will add your date to my diary and will send you any information regarding your session to help you know what to expect and prepare. Once your baby arrives its best to get your partner/friend or relative to let me know so that we can organise a date for the session. This is best done within the first 10 days when baby is still sleepy. This time also helps us get those super sleepy poses. Your baby is considered newborn up to 4 weeks old. After this babies become harder to put in poses and wake easily. Please note all newborn sessions take place in the mornings.

Location

I work from my relaxed home setting in Lostock Hall, Preston. address details will be forwarded upon booking. Please not there are no toilet facilities in the studio.


Session

I can take photos of baby with siblings if space allows but these are best done at the beginning or the end of the session and siblings taken out or occupied during shoot by dad or grandma, if possible, so its a nice relaxed atmosphere for baby. These sessions are best booked in the morning about 10am to allow for good light and to allow extra time for soothing, feeding, changing of baby. Keeping baby awake the morning of the session is not always easy but it will really help when they arrive if they are very sleepy. If you can be prepared with extra bottles/ feeds  for during the session to top baby up if needed, to help sooth baby that would be a big help. At the start of the session I will try and get to know you and your newborn and aim to make you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. The more relaxed you are the more relaxed baby will be. I am open to any ideas and will try my best to achieve poses and colour schemes in order to make your photos the best I can. The session can take anywhere from 1-3 hours and I will just let your baby take the lead. I will spend some time soothing and making baby feel as comfortable as possible. Not every pose is possible with every baby so I will again just go with how your baby settles.

As a newborn photographer I am professionally trained by award winning photographers to ensure safety is my main priority when capturing the memories of your little one. I love what I do and cant wait to share these memories with you.

If siblings are having joining in on the session as well it is sometime  best to bring them to join in at the end of the session by a family member where convenient as the newborn sessions are such a long session and younger children can get bored easily. 

**Please note the session will be cut short if children are not under control for safety reasons**


When to Book

I advise people to book their newborn session not long after their 20 week scan as I can get booked up weeks in advance. Please do not hesitate to contact me and check availability if you have left it a little later, as not all babies arrive on time so I try and move bookings about to accommodate early/late babies. Partner, friend or parents can contact me on your behalf after baby has arrived so we can book a date. It is best to have the session within the first 10 days of baby being born.


Things to Bring and Have Ready

Extra milk, dummies if used, a snuggly blanket and nappies.

The heater will be on during the session to make sure the atmosphere is lovely and warm for baby.

Please note there are no toilet facilities in the studio.
