Do you offer weekend appointments?
I offer limited appointments Mon-Fri and Sundays. I understand that dads are often working, but sometimes dads can get a morning off work or you can book your session for a time when he’ll be on holiday. And in a lot of cases mum just comes with the baby on her own and that’s fine too.
When is the best time for a newborn session?
The best time for newborn photography is within the first week to ten days of their life when they are still „curled up“ in their foetal position and generally spend most of the time sleeping. Once they pass the two-week mark, they become much more alert and some of the newborn poses are no longer possible to do.
How far in advance should I book?
If you are thinking of booking a newborn session, please get in touch with me after your scan so I can pencil you in. If you happen to go into labour early or late, we will reschedule as needed. I also have a cancellation list for last minute dates when I have to reschedule sick clients or newborns that are overdue, so if you were hoping to get appointment in the next month or two, I can put your name on the cancellation list.
How long will my session last?
A session with an older baby (3-11 months) takes on average 1.5 hours. A newborn session takes up to 3 hours. These times are indications only and will depend on the individual child on the day of the session.
Do I need to bring any props to my session?
No. For babies there is no need to bring anything. For their siblings you’ll just have to bring their outfits, but once you’re booked in you will receive a welcome pack with tips on what to wear etc.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
I am careful about selling gift vouchers. Choosing photographer is very personal and everyone has a different style/taste. I want to make sure that the parents that are hiring me went through my portfolio, read reviews or got recommendation from their friends that I photographed, and they know and love my work. If this is the case then I’m happy to sell you a gift voucher.
I would however prefer that the parents book a session with me, and you and your friends can buy them a voucher towards their session fee or, if you wish, towards bespoke printed products.
