Newborn Studio Session
Our Newborn Studio Sessions are perfect for a newborn baby or newborn twins up to the age of 6 weeks. Ideally the session should take place within the first two weeks of your baby's life to achieve 'sleepy' portraits. We have a number of backgrounds, hats, nappy covers and hairbands (for the girls!), and you are more than welcome to bring your own accessories, blankets or personal items for us to include in the pictures. A typical newborn session takes around 3-4 hours, although we may only be shooting for half that - we allow plenty of extra time for feeding, changing, settling your baby, etc. Please remember to bring any comforters (i.e. dummy), feeds, bibs, nappies and wipes. Debra will oversee your newborn session. She has years of professional childcare experience and is a mother of 3, so your baby will be in safe hands. Please keep in mind that it gets very warm in the studio when we are shooting a newborn session (we like nice pink babies especially when they're only wearing a hat)!
Our Maternity Sessions are perfect for expectant mothers. You are welcome to include your partner and your child(ren) in the portrait to capture this amazing miracle of your growing family. Ideally a maternity session should take place between week 30 and week 36. We will allow approximately 45 minutes for your session, so there is plenty of time for a variety of poses. The session can take place in our studio, a local park (such as Marbury Park) or your home (there is no additional charge for locations within a 10 mile radius of our studio although location shoots are subject to availability). We have male and female photographers available to shoot your session, if you have a preference please let us know when booking.
