Newborn Safety Guide

When looking for your newborn photographer it can get a little overwhelming. Please feel free to look at my newborn safety guide for a few tips. Hopefully it will help you know what to look for when choosing the photographer for you.

Unfortuntely, newborn photography is not a regulated industry. It is so important for parents to understand what to look for when looking for a professional baby photographer.

You really can’t be too careful when looking for someone to take photos of your precious baby. Always look for someone who has undertaken specialist training in how to handle newborns safely. During a newborn session, I will always handle babies with the utmost care. I am highly trained in how to pose newborns safely and competently and train other photographers.

About the Newborn Photography Session

My newborn photograhy sessions are aimed to be very relaxed and calm.

All sessions go a little different and that is because every baby is different. Newborn photograhy sessions can vary in time. I usually find newborn sessions take between 1 and 3 hours. This will allow for lots of time for baby to have cuddles and feeds.

My newborn photography sessions include parent and sibling shots at no additional charge and dresses for mums are available if you wish to use them.

What can you expect from a Newborn Photography Session?

You will recieve a full newborn session and gallery, no matter what package you choose (Bronze, Silver or Gold)

We will start the session with some props. There will be on average 3-5 prop sets (depending on baby on the day). We will then move on to beanbag poses and then family/sibling images, if you want them!

How to Book A Newborn Session

For booking due dates (booking whilst pregnant), please select the “due date only” option and the time as 8am. This is not the date of your session. Your due date will be used to reserve a date in my diary each week until little one arrives. This option will show for all dates regardless of availability.

2

Booking A Fixed Session Date

For booking a fixed session date in advance, particularly if baby has already arrived or if you are having a planned C-Section, please select “fixed session date – baby already here” option and select 10am. This option will show the available dates where a newborn session can be held around other bookings.

If you only wish for a relaxed/unposed session or a family focused session then please choose the baby/sitter option which is 1 hour long and does not require baby to be asleep

Newborn Photography Frequently Asked Questions:

I have a beautiful fully equipped studio in the heart of Tamworth Town Centre which has everything needed for your newborn photography session, including coffee and biscuits! So sit back and relax watch me gently capture some beautiful photos of your baby.

​The best time to book your newborn session is before baby arrives, anytime between 12 and 20 week scan. Once you are booked in, your due date will be penciled into my diary. I will reserve a floating date each week around your due date till baby arrives. When baby is here, please then contract me to let me know of the little ones arrival and a mutually convenient date will then be arranged.

It is due to a babies arrival being unpredictable that I limit how many newborns I book per month. By taking a limited number of due dates, I know that I can always accommodate your session should baby be early or late.

If you specifically require a weekend session, please let me know upon booking whilst pregnant as weekends do get booked months in advance.

The best time to book in for your newborn photography session is during pregnancy to guarantee your session time.  Whilst sometimes I do have last minute availability, this is never a guarantee.

Sessions tend to be held between your baby being 5-15 days old, however, these dates are flexible. I can offer newborn sessions up to 10 weeks, maybe older if I am unable to accomodate the intial 5-15 days!

Please contact me as I may have last minute availability.

If baby is already over 15 days old dont worry! I have photographed many older babies and this is usually not a problem at all.

Sometimes mums prefer to wait until they feel they are more settled in with a new baby before getting photographs taken. I have taken beautiful photographs of babies in a newborn style up to 10 weeks old, sometimes older, so dont feel you have missed out!!!!

Sessions usually can last anywhere between 2-3 hours.  I allow time for baby to feed, become settled and fall into that deep sleep that is needed for some poses.  To enable babies to reach this point I may start your session wrapped. If baby is asleep at the start of the session, once they have been undressed etc, then wraps are not used as often. Every baby is different, and I will go with the flow and needs of the baby.

I only shoot one full newborn photography session a day to ensure that, should additional time be required, I am able to do so.  Unfortunately, I will not shoot over 3 hours as, in my opinion, anything longer is expecting too much of such a little person!

Newborn sessions are ever rushed and we can only go with what baby is happy with.

On the day of your session, please avoid any tight fitting clothing as these will leave markings on your baby’s skin.

Please dress your baby in easily removable baby grows. Your baby wearing no vest is preferred. Anything being removed over a babies head can often wake or unsettle them.

Additional supplies (such as milk, nappies) will be needed, as we may need them.

A newborn photography session guide will be sent out to you upon booking. This will enable you to have all the information ready and avaialble for you to plan your day.

A variety of cushions and support pillows will be used. These ensure that babies are always supported in no matter what position or prop.

I attempt to create something different each session, whilst maintaining my style. However, if there is a particular image of mine you do want recreating, please let me know.

I have a cute collection of outfits, wraps, hats and bears in a range of colours that I use.

When it comes to beanbag poses, I prefer to shoot babies at their most pure and innocent. If baby is wearing an outfit, I will do one pose on the beanbag in the outfit. After this, baby will be undressed for the remainder of the beanbag set. I do incorporate hats, headbands and wrap and my popular bears for baby to cuddle. 

If you wish to recreate some of my images already shown on social media and my website, please let me know which images 48 hours prior to your session. I set up for my sessions prior to the session begining based on your colour choices provided in the questionnaire.

When you book your session, you will receive a session questionnaire. You can add any requirements to this, such as any particular colours you would like me to use along with any props that you have seen on my website or social media.  This information will enable me to create something for you.

If you wish to recreate some of my images already shown on social media and my website, please let me know which images 48 hours prior to your session. I set up for my sessions prior to the session begining based on your colour choices provided in the questionnaire.

You can either go with multiple colours to suit your home or choose just one colour throughout the session.

Yes! Family images can be as posed or as relaxed as you wish.  These are your images of your family!

Parents that may feel a bit sleep deprived and not at there best, a very simple silhouette family image is ideal! Please never feel forced to have parent images but it would be a shame to miss out on the memories.

Some mums like to use my gowns in the session. If you wish to do this, please let me know before arrival so I can ensure the dress is ready.

I will always do my best to get your baby to be as relaxed as possible and into that deep sleep. 

Very rarely, some babies just do not sleep. If this is the case, we will take some beautiful awake images of your baby.  If in the very rare circumstances is completely unsettled, then it would be entirely possible to reschedule for a date in the near future when baby will be more at ease. This has not happened yet – touch wood!

After many years of a being a mobile newborn photographer, I have found that being in a studio environment is the perfect situation.  Everything is on hand to ensure your baby will be safe and comfortable. All props are available and interchangeable should baby not settle in a particular prop or we feel the colours do not suit baby.

Many returning clients from my “mobile days” have enjoyed the experience of the studio visit far more than having their home disrupted with with lots of props and equipment which can take over an entire room.

Being in a studio environment also means I will have sets ready for your arrival based on your quetionnaire. This way all the focus is on baby (always a cuddle first).

Yes! I have a large variety of outfits, beanbag fabrics, furs etc. You can either chose multiple colours for your session or go for one colour to make a more cohesive gallery.

SOME COLOUR SCHEME OPTIONS CAN BE SEEN ON CLICKING ON THIS TITLE

If you wish to recreate some of my images already shown on social media and my website, please let me know which images 48 hours prior to your session. I set up for my sessions prior to the session begining based on your colour choices provided in the questionnaire.

This is a common question. Many clients like to see what can be acheived at a session. For this reason, I have a few examples of galleries where client have given me permission to share images. These are not full galleries but show one image from each set/pose etc

SOME RECENT CLIENT GALLERIES CAN BE SEEN BY CLICKING ON THIS TITLE SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT CAN BE ACHEIVED FROM A SESSION

Absolutely no problem!

Clients who have booked in previously for these sessions have requested a very simple colour theme but you can choose to have another colour if you wish. I do think a nice white colour though does give these images a more natural feel.

If you would like a more natural unposed newborn session, then please let me know.

Of course! I have had some clients want to focus on their growing family as opposed to the new addition, particularly if older siblings have not had a newborn photoshoot of their own. This is quite common.

Please let me know on booking what you would like your main focus to be.

Images are never used in any way without your PRIOR permission from you. Upon booking, you will receive a questionnaire that will ask for your consent. Around 80-90% of my clients ask me not to share images on social media/website.
