This session allows us to spend up to two hours together in your home, unlike studio there is no rush to have pictures taken within a short window after the birth of your new-born, for sleepy pictures its ideal within 6-12 days, for more alert pictures up to 12 weeks, these sessions are not overly posed, designed to capture a natural set of images, working only with natural light in each of your rooms, I tend to photograph in your master bedroom, sitting room, and nursery when possible, every home is unique and I will do my best to capture this, if it’s possible I ask clients to make there bed and use a neutral bed throw, and have a light clean up in the areas I will be photographing in.
For older baby’s one year plus
I think it’s lovely to capture your baby in their first home, it’s the first part of their story, no two new-born sessions are the same, this makes it a unique experience, if you have older children who would like to be involved holding baby or family pictures, I tend to capture these first. We take regular breaks for feeding and snacks as and when you want.
Do you offer baby millstone session after newborn?
I offer petite sessions, most clients capture this stage at 6 months, 9 months and 12 months, these are 30-45 minuets. For more information please get in contact with me.
For clients who have multiple sessions, and don’t have the room to display their images within their home, I offer fine art album which combines all of those memories in photo album.
What should we wear?
I recommend keeping it simple and comfortable, and that you are confident in your choice of clothing, keep in mind neutral shades such as creams, light greys, and pastel colours, dresses are beautiful and flowy, flattering when curled up on the sofa with your new-born, by selecting these colours your choice of clothing won’t take away from the natural beauty of your baby.
Please avoid busy patterns, bright colours can create abnormal skin tons on baby through colour cast. Large logos are very distracting, the key to producing timeless pictures is keeping your choice of clothing neutral and elegant.
What should I dress baby and siblings in?
Dress your newborn, in a simple plain onesie or a muslin swaddle, we can discuss this prior to your session, for siblings keep it simple, something they can still play in and is comfortable to wear.
With your permission I would like to share a small selection from your session, if you have any objection please get in contact with me.
