Newborn Portrait Sessions - When to Book

 

Newborn photography gives the finest results when babies are photographed at around 5-10 days of age.   This is while they are still sleepy and love the shape of mum's womb and it is easier to settle them down. Most mums book around the time of their 20 weeks scan or no later than their maternity photo session. Sure, you can never be certain when the baby will arrive, but I will pencil down your due date on my calendar.  As soon as your precious bundle of joy is born get your partner, friend or relative to give me a call so that we can book a date for the newborn session. First week works best to get the curly poses and longer amounts of deep sleep to pose and style. After two weeks of age, babies are more likely to be disturbed while sleeping, and can also become colicky, or baby acne can start to flare. If you have missed the first 2 weeks and your baby is now 2 months old, please contact me to book a baby photo session.

 

To ensure the quality of your baby photoshoot will not be compromised I only book limited amount of sessions per month, so no overlapping can happen. If you decide to do a newborn photography session last minute, I’ll do my best to fit you in if there is any space in my schedule. Please be aware that existing bookings will always be treated with priority.

 

 

 

Newborn Portrait Sessions - How long do they last?

 

Newborn sessions take typically between 2-4 hours as I have to work around your newborn sleep and other needs. There has to be time for feeding, changing and of course the all-important cuddling and settling. You'll have access to my large collection of newborn props, outfits and accessories which can be used unlimited in the time frame.

 

 

 

Newborn Portrait Sessions - Where are they held?

 

Newborn sessions are held at my home studio in New Eltham, Greenwich, South East London from 10am-2pm on weekdays.

Newborn Portrait Sessions - When will I get my images?

 

Your Newborn Photography gallery will be available for viewing in 14 days after the shoot, and will last for 2 weeks.
