Getting the most from your experience

The newborn photoshoot lasts approximately 2 hour. This is to allow for downtime such as feeding, changing and the soothing of your baby.  You can help maximise the photography time by timing your feed to coincide with the beginning of your shoot, if possible.  Slightly delaying a sleep can also help to capture those key poses that are only available in those first few precious weeks of a baby's life.

All of our photographers have had in depth training and specialised knowledge in photographing your baby. They are very confident in baby handling, so rest assured do not feel that you have to position your baby for the photos. 

What to bring with you?

Teddy bears and blankets along with any nice gifts all work great.  To add a little more character to the images people sometimes bring along items that link to their hobbies and interests like a baking bowl, plant pot, horse-riding saddle etc. Basically anything personal that you can safely either place them in or on that will help for some fantastic images.

 

Newborn girls look gorgeous with headbands and flowers. You may want to theme your photoshoot and stick to a colour scheme that works with the baby nursery; such as pinks for a girls.

 

Newborn boy outfits are very cute with a nautical theme, which is a popular nursery room decor. Or perhaps you would prefer a more vintage feel, with vintage suitcases and baby caps. 
 

We'll be taking some up close hands and feet shots of both the baby and yourselves so please make sure you have the tidy hands you would want to see on your wall art.


Where is your artwork going in your home?


Finally, you are about to get some fantastic personalised artwork that will look great in any room. We recommend taking a look around your home and identifying areas where you may like to display your finished products. Newborn photography is very precious and can only be achieved in the first 4 weeks of life. Most of our clients opt to purchase our beautiful albums as a keepsake, along with an impact piece for the wall.
