THE NEWBORN PORTRAIT SESSION EXPERIENCE
AFTER YOU BOOK
Thank you so much for choosing me to capture such important time in your life. I can't wait to photograph your little one and capturing your first family portraits with your newest addition. I usually receive bookings for newborn session when my clients are pregnant as these tend to book quite fast in advance. Upon booking, you will receive more thorough What to Expect guide as well as a pre-session questionnaire, in which you can stipulate any special requests, colour pallet choices, props and more! This is an exciting part of the process during which we will plan your session, using colours you love to create beautiful timeless portraits you will be proud to hang on your walls. If you have any special requests or questions during this time, do not hesitate to let me know. I love creating custom set ups for my clients to create a true one off special piece just for you.
The photo session usually takes place during the first 2 weeks of your new baby's life but I am more than happy to photograph even older newborns (3-8 weeks) if it is unfeasible to photograph your bundle of joy before.
The photo session will take place in comfort of your home where you can truly relax while I am photographing your new family addition. I will bring all the backdrops, props and other equipment so all you need to do prior to the shoot is to ensure the room temperature is nice and cozy for your baby.
The session length varies as I work depending on how baby reacts. Some babies sleep from start to finish and some take a little bit more shushing, feeding and cuddles before they fall asleep for those sleepy shots. The session will be completely customised for each baby and so will the poses. Some babies are more flexible then others and so I will ensure the safety and comfort of your baby is upmost priority and if I feel like the baby won't be able to achieve the pose, I will switch to another pose as there is no reason to upset the baby.
Depending upon your chosen package you may wish to take photographs with siblings and parents. Please ensure you wear something comfortable in plain colours such as white, black, gray or cream without any prints to ensure your outfits look beautiful on your family portraits.
I have wide variety of backdrops, props and accessories. I will be bringing all my equipment so you do not need to worry about anything.
AFTER THE SESSION
I aim to upload sneak peeks on my social media and for the parents to view on the same day of the photoshoot. This may not always be possible in which case I will try to upload them as soon as possible as I know you will be very excited to see how they turned out.
After the sneak peeks have been uploaded, it takes up to 3 weeks for the full viewing gallery to be edited. Once your viewing gallery is ready, I will send you your private password protected link to access your gallery. This gallery will be valid for 24hrs during which you can choose your images for your package and if applicable order additional package upgrade/products.
Once paid for, your order will be processed by one of my state of the art printing lab suppliers. Turnaround of prints, products and Collections and USB/CDs is usually 2-5 weeks, as they are all hand crafted and of exquisite quality. Social media optimised digital images (if you opt for a main Collection including digital images) will be supplied via digital download upon receipt of the payment for your Collection or Package, the full high resolution digital images will be delivered on USB along with the rest of your Collection.
Your products will be delivered in person in a reveal session in comfort of your home.
Thank you for considering me to be your newborn photographer and capturing your precious memories of your new baby. If you'd like to discuss your requirements for a session, please contact me.
