Tiny newborn days:
A newborn shoot should ideally be within the first 14 days of life. It is always best to book the shoot before your give birth as there are limited spaces for newborn shoots. Newborn shoots usually take 2-3 hours depending on how sleepy the baby is. Siblings are welcome to come for a shot with baby although this shoot is all about your newborn so the there will be a lot of waiting around for your older children. Sadly i don’t have huge amounts of space and so i suggest that siblings are bought to the shoot at the beginning or the end of the shoot. I have an information sheet that I can send out to you once you book with some further guidance of what to expect.
By far the best age to capture those lovely bigger baby images is between 6-8 months. Sitting up and smiling, generally without fear of strangers setting in you will see some adorable faces from your little one.
I generally shoot family portraits in an outdoor location. That way the kids get to express who they are naturally. I can manage a studio shoot with families with 4 people.
I don’t currently shoot weddings. I have a list of recommended local photographers who would be happy to chat to you.
