When should I book my newborn photoshoot?
We’re a high quality, low volume studio with very limited sessions available, therefore we recommend you book early. Try to book your newborn photoshoot 2-3 months before your due date to avoid disappointment as we can get super busy at certain times of the year.
If your baby has already arrived then firstly a massive congratulations from us both…. we’ll certainly try our very hardest to fit you in!
What if my baby arrives early or late?
When you book with us, we’ll first pencil you in for a provisional shoot date, around 7-14 days after your due date. We then just keep in touch to tweak this as needed. We allow for plenty of flexibility in our diary as babies rarely arrive on time… only about 4% actually!
What happens should I need to cancel my session?
You can cancel an appointment and receive a full refund of all monies paid up until 7 days before your reserved date/time. Should you need to postpone after this time due to complications, then we will simply offer you a new date based on both yours and our availability.
Photoshop, editing & retouching?
Subtle, restrained and professional retouching removes the non-permanent blemishes that would otherwise distract from your child’s natural features. Bogeys and snot are never a good look, especially when magnified in your feature piece above the fireplace! Whereas permanent features such as moles, birthmarks and fine hairs remain untouched.
Please read our article ‘Bogeys, Snot and Slobber’ for details on our ethical approach to editing.
Do you only photograph in black and white?
We’ll capture your images in colour then convert the majority of your portraits to black and white. Most of our clients love the timeless simplicity of monochrome however we can supply colour versions if requested.
How should I prepare and what should I bring to my shoot?
Milk, milk and more milk… is by far the most important ingredient to a happy and successful newborn shoot.
Please read through our ‘How To Prepare Guide’ for much more detail…
What happens after my newborn photoshoot?
Shortly after your shoot we will download and edit the images captured down to the very best and create a password protected web gallery. Here you’ll get to choose your favourites and decide on how you’d like to present them.
