Frequently Asked Questions
NEWBORN MINI SESSIONS
When should I book my session?
You can book your newborn session with me any time from your 12-week scan. My diary does get full quite quickly and I only book in a certain amount of newborn sessions per month so to avoid disappointment I'd say book your session in with a deposit as soon as you can (this guarantees your session space once baby arrives).
What can I expect from my session?
My mini newborn sessions only take 1 hour, and includes two different prop set ups. Your baby will be swaddled for the entire time to ensure they stay nice and sleepy for us, but I can do two different colour set ups/swaddles to ensure there is lots of variety in your gallery to choose from.
How do I prepare for my session?
If breastfeeding, it is best to avoid spicy/acidic/gassy food for 24 hours before the session. Also, try to keep baby awake for as long as possible before the session, and before you leave the house dress baby in something easy to remove.
What do I need to bring?
Apart from snacks and your regular changing bag, you do not need to bring anything else! I will provide all of the props, wraps, outfits, hats, and headbands. I have lots of colours and styles to choose from which you can view and choose from my studio walls. If you'd like to include any personal items, bring them along and I'll try to incorporate them into the session.
Can I take photos?
You are more than welcome to take a few behind the scenes shots (as I love to see and post those on my social media too!), but make sure those BTS photos do not impede on the shots I am being paid to take for you.
Can I/my partner/children/pets be included in the photos?
Unfortunately, not. Due to the time restrictions of my mini sessions you cannot include any other person in the session. If you wanted to include other family members, my full newborn session would be perfect for you.
How long does it take for my photos to be ready?
Once you have returned to the studio to choose your favourite images, your final edits should take up to 1 week. During this time I will be retouching baby's hair, skin and removing any major blemishes by hand myself to make sure everything is perfect for your final images.
How do I choose my photos?
After your session I will choose the best 10 or so images with some basic editing to the colours and background etc, but no full skin retouching yet. Then I will upload them to your private online gallery and send you the link to preview them. You can then chose your final ones and any extra images you might like to add on.
My baby has already been born, am I too late?
There's no guarantee, but as my newborn mini sessions are only 1 hour long I do have more room in my diary for these types of sessions each month, so if your baby has been born already send me a message and I'll see if I have any space for you.
Will I receive any prints?
No, there any no prints or wall art products included in your mini session package. If you'd like to purchase extra prints and products, please get in touch and ask for my Al La Carte product list.
