Congratulations! Other than meeting your new baby, there is no better feeling than knowing their very first, professional photoshoot is booked. I am so honoured to have you book it with me! My Birmingham photography studio is fully equipped to photograph your precious newborn baby including using props, or baby on my state of the art posing equipment or in your arms!
But what happens now? Typically, your session date is scheduled in based on your expected date of birth and 14-21 days of that date. This means we have such good flexibility to be able to offer you a date that suits you, your family and your newborn baby.
You will receive terms and conditions as well as a form to complete to tell me all about your session ideas. This includes the kind of poses, colours and whether you have other children to take part too. Remember your session does include family photographs so it is great to prepare for those. Like with the Maternity Photography Experience, you will be able to have your makeup styled (and hair) for your session!
To help you with your ideas, think about what colours suit your home and the style of your home. Is it modern and contemporary or traditional and cosy? Do you like minimalism or plenty of storage and places for things to go? These ideas help to form the look of your gallery and inform me of specific wall art pieces that might suit you. Are there poses you absolutely want to have or maybe not so much? Let me know with the questionnaire.
So then what? Well we await the arrival of your brand new baby! Your session date is flexible, I only accept a limited number of bookings per month so I have the room to move about should you or your baby need more time. Once born, I just ask for a little update to see if we can go ahead with the planned date or move it! Of course, if baby makes an earlier entrance, do let me know that too! It is possible to bring the date forward!
Our session together will be aroud 3-4 hours and I will have light refreshments available for your comfort but please plan to be with me for part of your morning and afternoon. The Jewellery Quarter is a wonderful place to explore and so if you have the time in the afternoon, you can visit one of the lovely, local coffee shops or admire the stunning jewellery shops.
Your session time gives us the opportunity to not only photograph your baby but time for feeding, settling and soothing. You’ll learn that my way of working is very baby-led and I can quickly identify an unhappy or uncomfortable baby.
Around 3-4 weeks after your baby’s newborn photoshoot, I will invite you back to my Birmingham photography studio for a viewing and ordering appointment. It is at this session that you will decide on your collection and wall art products!
If you are thinking about booking a newborn session or want to know more about my newborn photography or other sessions available, please get in touch.
