WHEN DO I NEED TO BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?
The best time to book is usually after your 20 week scan. I simply pencil your due date in my diary and wait for the arrival of your little one. Once they are born, we can schedule your session.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH BABIES TO GET THAT PERFECT NEWBORN IMAGES?
Between 5-15days old. At this age they are very curly, squishy and very sleepy giving that perfect newborn look.
I WANT MY PARTNER AND CHILD/CHILDREN TO JOIN IN THE SESSION
All my sessions include partner and siblings except the fully wrapped newborn package
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON THE DAY OF THE SESSION?
No baby is the same, so my sessions are baby-led. I will follow their lead, and make sure they are always completely happy and content. Sessions can take anywhere between 2-4 hours on average, with plenty of feeding and changing breaks If needed, and I take my time on each pose to ensure you have a beautiful gallery.
WHAT IF MY BABY COMES EARLY OR TOO LATE?
Do not worry, Babies are unpredictable, if baby makes an arrival earlier or later than your due date, all you need to do is let me know that baby has been born. I will fit you in regardless.
WHAT IF I'VE MISSED THE NEWBORN TIME SCALE?
5-15 days window works best but it's certainly not a requirement. I understand every mum and baby is different that's why I'm flexible and can photograph babies up to 2 months, however it is important to note that babies are alert at this point and not all poses can be guaranteed.
WHERE DO i COME FOR OUR SESSION?
I have a warm home studio at Ariogan, Upper soroba, Oban. All my newborn session take place here.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
I always suggest neutral colours like a simple black, white or grey, tank top for mom and a matching plain tee for dad with jeans. Mom/dad and baby shots are close up so most of what you wear will not be shown.
For Siblings, a simple white or grey tee or tank with jeans and bare feet. Please remove their socks and shoes at the start of the session to get them used to it. For little girls please avoid hair accessories unless they are very small and a natural colour.
