Many congratulations to you all on your brand new addition to your family! There is nothing more amazing than new life. Katie has been a dedicated newborn photographer for over 8 years so you’re in safe hands when it comes to your most precious gift. The studio is oozing with different props, accessories and different coloured backgrounds for you to choose from.
We ask for you to book in 2 weeks after your due date, and if your baby is early or late we can wiggle the date around to suit, please let us know within 48 hours of birth so we can accommodate that. The reason this is so important is so we can ensure we can see you between 5-21 days post birth.
If the baby has already been born, please let us know before making a booking so we can give you an expectation on what to expect.
Equally important if your baby hasn’t arrived by the date of your photoshoot we would need 48 hours notice to change it. If the session is cancelled within 48 hours a new booking would need to be made.
Now all the important information is done.. Time for the fun part!
What to expect:
You’ll be sent a colour scheme which we ask you to choose 3-4 different colours to complete your photoshoot, please ensure this is done 48 hours before your photoshoot starts so we can get that ready for you.
On the day of your photoshoot, we will bring you into our warm studio and sit you down on our comfy sofa and ask you to fill out a form. Then we ask for the baby to be stripped to their nappy and wrapped in a warm blanket, now's the time for feeds & nappy changes!
Once you’re settled in and the baby has a full tummy, we will usually start with the baby alone to get the baby used to being handled and moved so they fall into a deep sleep. This part of the photoshoot can take 30 minutes - 1.5 hours depending on the baby and their needs at the time.
Once that part is complete and depending on the package chosen, we will guide you through the different family poses, including: mum & baby, dad & baby, parents together with baby, siblings alone and with the baby.
If there is anything specific you’d like photographed we ask you to let us know before the session starts to see if we can accommodate that.
Once we have the images for your gallery, the best ones are chosen and sent to our editors to be professionally airbrushed, this may take 2 - 3 weeks but please note during busy or holiday times this may vary.
You will then receive a private online gallery where you can view your gorgeous images and select the ones you want to order as per your package. Extras can be purchased directly through your online gallery and all orders are shipped directly to your door (please note a small postage & handling fee will apply for all orders)
Digital images are delivered instantly and we advise prints may take 5-10 working days.
