NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY INFO
Babies don’t stay this tiny and sleepy forever and soon they will be crawling, walking and exploring the world around them (hard to believe this will happen but it does all too soon).
A custom Newborn Photography Session gives you the opportunity to preserve how tiny and beautiful your little one is and to receive some beautiful images afterward.
I will capture all your baby’s perfect features in my warm, comfortable Glasgow photography studio (or your home if you prefer) and what’s more, I will make sure your baby is posed safely.
These images from your newborn session will help you to remember this most wonderful time in your life — the moment you fell head over heels in love with your baby, much more than you ever could have thought possible.
NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
How much does a Newborn session cost?
The session costs £99. This covers my travel costs, the shoot and editing.
How much are photographs?
When should I book my Newborn Photography session?
You should start thinking about booking your session around your 14 – 18 week scan. I’ll make some space in the diary around your due date in case your baby arrives early or late.
How old should my baby be for a Newborn session?
From days 4 – 14. I like to photograph babies days 4-6. Newborns sleep nice and deep at this age.
How long does a session take?
Newborn Photography – approximately 2-4 hours. The younger babies sleep deeper and so the quicker your session will flow.
What if my baby doesn’t sleep during the session?
When you book with me we’ll have a phone consultation on how to prepare for the session. Generally, if you stick to these instructions and if your baby is warm, with a full tummy and in general good health – he/she will naturally fall asleep. Of course, sometimes it may take a little while for baby to fall asleep and this is your time to relax and let me take over
Do I receive any products in the session fee?
What happens if baby “poops” during the session?
Don’t worry about it, accidents happen all the time. All blankets, clothing and props are washed after each session regardless of little accidents happening.
What happens after the session?
5-7 days after your session I will invite you back to the studio for a Preview and Ordering session. Your gallery will contain around 20 fully retouched images to view and I will help you decide on your favourites. Most of my clients value stunning artwork to hang on their wall, so each image has been edited and designed as a main focus piece. Take note that it is during this Preview and Ordering session that you will order and pay for any products, prints and packages. All major debit and credit cards are accepted.
Do you provide a home visit or mobile service for Newborn photography?
Yes. I understand that you probably feel exhausted for the first few days after giving birth. I’m more than happy to come to your home to photograph your baby. All I need is a warm room with a bit of space to set up and a window with good natural light. I add on a small fee to cover my travel expenses for home visits.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, the session fee is payable before the shoot.
Do you retouch/edit the images?
Yes, all images are artistically retouched.
What if I need to cancel?
There is a 48-hour cancellation policy. However I do understand that babies and children are prone to catching colds or becoming ill suddenly. I’ll do everything I can to reschedule your appointment to another day.
