Congratulations on your pregnancy! If you are thinking of booking a newborn session I highly recommend you book your photographer as soon as possible. The best time is usually following your 20 week scan.I am a fully trained newborn photographer and have been photographing newborn babies for over 3 years. I have trained with some of the best newborn photographers from the UK and America & I am a qualified member of the guild of photographers & the British Association of Professional Children’s Photographers. I work from my home studio in Banchory, Aberdeenshire. I love newborn photography sessions – recording your baby in the first 2 weeks of life is an amazing privilege for me. It’s also a one time opportunity to record how tiny & perfect they are! I have a very distinct style that is simple & organic, providing you with images that tell a story all about your baby………. Neutral soft colours brought together with amazing lighting is all you need to showcase your perfect baby. I will capture your baby as he/she is, the yawns, the sneezes, the awake moments, little details such as eyelashes, pouting lips, tiny fingers & toes.
About the sessions
Sessions run mid week from 10:30am through to 2pm & take approx 2 to 3 hours – much of the time will be spent soothing, feeding and changing your baby to get him into a sleepy sleep for his photographs. My sessions are completely baby led & very relaxed. The studio room will be heated to make sure your baby is comfortable as he will be photographed without clothes. My main focus during a session will be photographing your baby, however I always like to encourage Mum’s and Dad’s to have some family shots at the end of the session and I am also more than happy to include siblings. I supply changing facilities, nappies and wipes – the only thing you will need to bring is feeds, change of clothes for baby, pacifier (if you use one) and maybe a change of clothes for yourself.
Following your session
Approx 2-3 weeks following your session your hand edited images will be uploaded into a password protected online gallery – I edit approx 25 images. Your gallery will be live for 10 days which gives you time to look at your images and decide on what you would like to order – without any high pressure sales from me. All my products are on show & you will be able to see them when you come for your session.
Newborn sessions cost £95 and this is due in advance to confirm your booking – this fee includes a pre session consultation, my time & talent taking your photographs and the hand editing of each one for your private online gallery – *It does not include any Prints or Products* Please check here for my ready to print PRICELIST 2015 On booking, I will make a note of your due date in my diary. When your baby arrives please contact me as soon as possible and we will then set a confirmed session date. Babies tend not to arrive on time but I will always be able to accommodate you, due to the fact I only book a set number of sessions per month.
If you have any special requirements or questions please call me on 01330 822331, I would love to speak to you and discuss your session.
