Frequently Asked Questions

When should we book a session?2019-10-23T10:21:38+00:00

Newborns: Sleepy newborn photographs are so precious. The best time for this style is before 12 days old. This ensures I can capture those cosy, sleepy moments.

Babies: It’s never too early to book! I recommend planning your sessions around the following milestones:

6 months – Sitting, smiling, and starting to express their personality.
9 months – Look out, they’re on the move! Crawling, rolling and oodles of giggles.
10-11 months – If you wish to use the photos for their 1st birthday invite. Maybe try a Cake smash for a bit of fun!
12 months – Growing up…Standing, or even taking their first steps.

Children and family: Any age is perfect! I love photographing children, they are hilarious and live for fun. It is such a rewarding and exhausting age… Families often pick a date close to an anniversary, birthday or holiday date. But, anytime that suits the needs of your family is perfect.

How long will the session last?2015-01-07T09:55:31+00:00

Full shoot sessions lasts between 1 to 1.5 hours, Mini Shoot sessions (Studio or outdoor location) which last approximately 30 minutes. Newborn sessions can last up to 3 hours to allow for feeding and settling. Your session will never be rushed!

Studio or an outdoors location?2019-10-23T10:21:38+00:00

It really depends on the type of images you would like and what suits your family!

Choosing a location that is special to your family is of course a great way to personalise your images. I can also recommend many beautiful locations if you need ideas.

Newborn portraits may be captured in my warm and cosy home studio or in the comfort of your own home.

What should I wear?2019-10-23T10:21:38+00:00

Simple clothing will give your portraits a timeless feel and keep the focus on your child’s face. Some things to avoid when selecting clothing for your session are bold stripes, obvious patterns and large logos of any kind. When photographing more than one person, I recommend keeping the clothing similar or complementary in colour, tone and style. If there is a special outfit you would like to bring along please do.

What happens if it rains on the day of an outdoor shoot?2015-01-07T09:54:31+00:00

If the conditions are impractical for shooting, I will call you ASAP in the morning of the shoot to postpone to another day, or if you would prefer to arrange a studio session.

What if I can’t make it on the day of the shoot or my child is sick?2015-01-07T09:54:14+00:00

If for whatever reason you can’t make it, I ask that you call my mobile AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, I can then reschedule another date and time.

What if my child scratches or marks their face on the morning of the shoot?2019-10-23T10:21:38+00:00

Small marks and scratches can be removed in the digital preparation for printing. Most retouching is included in the price of the image but more extensive retouching work may incur an additional charge. If you are concerned about any marks, rashes, etc. please consult with me prior to the shoot.
