I recommend that you schedule your newborn session PRIOR to your baby’s birth to ensure a spot on my calendar. Contact me during your second trimester to book and I’ll pencil you in. £50 non refundable deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your spot in my calendar. Then, shoot me an email soon after you deliver so I can arrange a time for the session.
Newborn sessions should be scheduled within the first 14 days of life. However, the BEST time is between 5-7 days after their arrival. If at all possible I always schedule my newborn sessions on the 5th day after delivery at 11 in the morning. Morning is a time when most babies sleep more soundly so the time of the day matters. I will also email you a preparation guide before your scheduled session. If you have any questions at all pop me over your phone number and a good time to phone and I will give you a call.
What if my baby is older than 14 days old?
If for any reason you missed this crucial time I can still photograph your baby (up to 3 months of age) in similar way to a newborn session with similar posing. The older the baby is the more difficult and longer this process becomes. That is why I recommend booking at least the 3 hour session or longer.
