Newborn Photographer | South Manchester & Cheshire | Session Information
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
If you are thinking of booking a newborn session the best time to book your newborn session is during pregnancy (after your 20 week scan) when the due date is known. We can then finalise a date once baby arrives and we know that you are both safe and well! Early booking is preferential, to avoid disappointment, but last minute availability is occasionally possible and I offer discounts if booked with a maternity shoot. Please do not hesitate to enquire.
WHERE DO I GO?
The sessions can either be held in the comfort of your own home for a more lifestyle feel or in my small studio for a more traditional look. Off street parking is available & I will email or text you the address prior to your session.
HOW DO I BOOK?
You can book either via email, text or phone call. I take a limited number of newborn bookings per month, these are booked by due date (as an approximation). A £25 deposit (which is deductible from your package price) to book the session. Once baby has arrived, message me within about 48 hours, so that we can schedule your official session date.
CAN YOU INCLUDE SIBLINGS / PARENTS?
Yes. please let me know in advance. I like to take sibling and relevant family images at the beginning of the session, as young children get bored easily, giving the best chance for cooperation. Please have your children dressed and ready to go for their session. This includes hair combing and having their faces clean. Children are more likely to become grouchy if they are fussed with too much before the session. Bring some of their favourite snacks along with you.
My sessions take place at the weekend.
WHAT TO BRING
If you are bottle feeding: Please bring extra milk, as the room is kept warm, babies often need to feed more regularly then they normally would. Also bring spare nappies and a dummy if baby using one. The room will be kept warm so you may want to wear something fairly lightweight. Breastfeeding is welcomed. Please only bring the people that will be photographed to the session.
Please do not bring your own camera, camcorder or recording device to the session.
UNDER THE WEATHER
Children can be unpredictable so I understand that this sometimes happens. If you or your child is feeling ill, please call to reschedule. If you must cancel, please try to do so at least 48 hours before your session.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Editing your images takes between 3-4 weeks however a teaser image will be shared on my Facebook page after the shoot which you are welcome to tag yourself in and share. Once they are ready, I’ll email you a link to a secure and private viewing folder where you are able to view and download the full gallery. The images will be displayed in a password-protected online gallery. The online gallery will be available for 1 week. If you wish to order additional images then ordering should be completed in that time frame.
