Welcome to the World sessions
The session is all about baby; led by them, organic, honest and raw.
My approach is simple and minimalist, with no posing or props. I don’t think your baby needs anything more than just to be themselves.
We’ll get some pictures of your new family together. These are memories to look back on, the connections between you and capturing those tiny toes that won’t stay that small for long.
It's best if your baby is between 7 and 14 days old
That’s because they’re still at the sleepy stage, are very flexible with new and glowing skin. If they are older then we can we can still do the session, just bare in mind they are more alert the older they are.
Each session lasts between 2 and 4 hours
That might sound like a long time but I don’t want you to feel rushed. We’ll put the kettle on, have some homemade cake and it allows plenty of time for any feeds and changes. My experience is that the more relaxed you are, the more relaxed your baby will be and you’ll get better photographs – it’s my job to make sure this happens.
Have a think about what to wear
· The studio will be warm, so wear layers
· Plain styles work best; no stripes or logos
· Colour-wise, black and white both photograph well
· And, above all, wear something you’re comfortable in
Siblings are welcome to join in
Even the fur babies, but I’ll do these shots at the beginning, or end, of the session so they don’t get too fed up hanging about.
These sessions are for older babies, babies who are able to sit unaided and crawl about.
