I was lucky enough to do a family/maternity session for this family, so I was really looking forward to this newborn session. I just couldn’t have asked for better! Baby Frankie was a very settled and content baby. Her older brother was very excited to introduce me to his new sister. He was also very keen to get his photo taken (although it may have taken a few chocolate bribes).
I’ve had a lot of enquiries lately for newborn sessions, which is amazing! Newborn photography is definitely something I am truly passionate about. So I thought I would include some information and tips to help prepare expectant mums for their sessions. Expectant mums usually get in touch to pencil in their due date 2-3 months before baby is due. This helps me plan my sessions and bookings. It also gives us the opportunity to book in a maternity session. Check out the sneak peek from my most recent maternity session here.
I typically shoot my newborn sessions under 2 weeks of age and ideally around the 5-6 day mark. The reason for this is mainly because babies are quite sleepy at this age and are able to be posed more easily. I also know having a new baby in your house is an adjustment and exhausting, so I always let parent’s know its perfectly ok to wait until you are settled at home before touching base with me to officially book in our session.
I typically will come to you for your session. We really only need to have a small space with good natural light in order to do our session. It’s also really lovely to be in your own environment. And to feel comfortable feeding and settling your baby in your own space. I will always work with your baby and as I’ve often said my focus is always primarily on the safety and comfort of the baby and mother I am working with.
