Suggested time to photograph newborns is when they are between 6-21 days of age. That is because they are still very sleepy, flexible and like to curl up as if they were still in the womb. Older babies may be harder to settle, disturbed by colic and much more fidgety. Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 9-11 days old, so I tent to avoid this time.
Please be sure that your baby's safety is the most important for me. I don't work with any assistants so I will need your hand holding baby's head, hands or body.
Please don’t worry if you have already booked in and your baby came early or late, I always make sure I make time for baby's photo shoot in my schedule.
I allow plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and comforting during the session.
Newborn session can take up to 3-4 hours! Please allow feeding time for when I arrive to your home (or 15 mins before the session) so baby is sleepy and happy, ready for a relaxing photo shoot when asleep. The room should be nice and warm during the session to make sure your baby always feels comfortable naked, or lightly dressed/wrapped so wear cool and comfortable clothing. This matter will be discussed if arriving to your home, I can bring a heater with me, or you can just prepare the room temperature yourself.
I have beautiful baby clothes, tutus, dressing up costumes, props and wraps. You’re free to choose the ones you wish your baby’s photos to be taken with.
The session fee covers session time, carefully selected and edited images one by one to ensure the best possible result.
Siblings, spouses and grandparents are welcome to take part in pictures with no additional fee, although because of the time the session can take I advise the rest of the family to arrive at the end for additional pictures.
Please carefully check pictures in my portfolio menu to make sure you like my style. In your package I include posing shots on bean bag and, if baby allows, shots in the basket/bucket. Pictures include whole body shots, different angles, close face shots, close-ups (hands/or nose/or feet - normally only one max 2 pics). For older baby pictures please check the Baby option in pricelist.

Please be aware of the way you handle digital images. I suggest downloading them on to the laptop for the best quality. Screenshots ruin the quality of the pictures. If you wish to print some pictures out yourself, the best way to do it is to use pictures directly downloaded off the website or save them on the laptop and email them to yourself, therefore you can print them out from your email in printing shop.
