WHY? Your baby will only be newborn once, for a very short period. He or she will grow out of the first body suit very quickly, then start crawling and sitting. A newborn photo shoot is an excellent opportunity to memorize your little baby’s appearance in the first days of his or her life, and I will be happy to help you to capture these moments by means of stylish newborn photography that I offer here in Derby.
WHEN? Your newborn must be photographed within the first two weeks of his or her life (preferable between 5 and 10 days); in this age your baby is very sleepy, tiny and cute, and would allow me to pose him or her well. While your baby is asleep, we can put cute hats, head bands, tiny shorts or skirts, wrap in soft fabrics (all provided by me) and so on to make the pictures admirable and beautiful.
WHAT THE SHOOT IS LIKE? I am a newborn photographer with experience, based in Derby. I have wide range of accessories, cute little things and nice fabrics and I will prepare everything before you come to my residential studio in Derby. The shoot normally takes up to 3 hours. The best time to schedule the shoot is on morning. Obviously, during the shoot you can feed the baby etc when needed. More details will be discussed before the session.
WHEN TO BOOK? The best time to indicate your interest is while you are still pregnant, when you reach 30 weeks. It may sound quite early but in fact it’s not. I can do only limited number of shoots per month. It’s better to secure your place for the shoot in advance as during the last few weeks of your pregnancy and after the birth you will have to think about lots of other things. Also, sometimes babies are born earlier than expected. Book the photo session in advance and then just call me when the baby is born to arrange a date for the shoot, come to my studio and I will do the rest. To book a newborn shoot please fill the Book a Baby Shoot form or simply call or email me.
SHOOT PRICE. The Newborn shoot price is £99 which includes:
– the shoot itself (my experience, props, professional photo equipment, time)
– £50 credit towards photographic products
If you book the Newborn shoot as part of the First Year Plan, you can save up to 20% of the shoot price.
AND FINALLY… I understand how busy and concerned you may be during the next two weeks after your precious baby is born. I’ve been through it and managed to photograph my little boy when he was 7 days old. It wasn’t very easy for me because I had to do everything by myself. But I’m so happy that I did this shoot for him. My son is absolutely different now. He changes every week. But we love to look through those pictures again and again. And it’s nice to decorate a baby’s room. Our family loves these pictures as well and grandparents have beautiful presents. Think about your three hours effort to come and the photographs and memories that you will get for the rest of your life. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
