I have been doing Mini Newborn sessions for at least three years now and they bring a lot of interest. With that I get asked many questions too.
WHAT IS A MINI NEWBORN SESSION -THE WRAP-UP PHOTO SESSION?
My offer of WRAP-UP COLLECTIONS are very popular choice for clients visiting my home-studio. They include an option of either focusing on a baby solely, or parents and the baby. They are time and budget friendly too.
So, what are the specifics?
- They last maximum 45 min
- If baby is awake, we will use wraps to help baby to settle
- Photographing the baby whether is awake or asleep
- Maximising session to get nice baby portraits, full body portrait and family portraits. If time allows doing one creative portrait involving a prop set up. (a basket for example)
- Selection and ordering process straight after the session
- If you would like to bring a sibling, we recommend only from the age of 4+
- Guidelines provided of what to bring/wear
Examples of newborn baby poses possible during Mini session.
Here is a selection of some simple poses I do during mini sessions. You have to bare in mind that since we have very limited amount of time, not always babies do sleep. Normally newborn mini sessions would be done with awake little ones. That is why you see here mostly awake newborn photos. Pretty much all of these newborn poses are possible with awake or asleep baby. It all depends how settled babies are.
AWAKE BABY ON A BEAN BAG ONLY
PARENTS AND A BABY ONLY
ASLEEP BABY ON A BEANBAG
These are just examples of what can be achieved in most cases. We need to remember that babies are just babies and sometimes they can be unsettled, or cry a lot. It is then your choice whether to continue the session and getting photos of a crying baby or not. In my opinion, images of crying babies are as precious as of those sleeping. The moment is caught – that what is important!
if you are looking to CAPTURE THE MOMENTS YOU LOVE there is no better way than to decide on hiring A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER.
Newborn sessions are held in my small home studio in Walthamstow and are starting early in the morning. From my experience , I know this is the best time of the day as newborns get more tired and sensitive as the day goes by.
Once you arrive here, I will take over your baby and start the session. It’s quite good and important to do the shooting in early days of baby’s life to achieve those cute curly positions. With that being said, the best time is between 4th and 10th day of baby’s life. Although, you must know and be assured that I NEVER force a baby into ANY position but, again, newborn babies grow quickly and become less sleepy and less flexible with every day and with every day it becomes more difficult to achieve certain positions. I photograph newborn babies until they are 12 weeks old.
o book a session I require £50 of booking fee that is non- refundable.
Also, important thing, I only take 10-12 newborn bookings each month in order to stay flexible for my clients ( babies are rarely born in their due date).
To pay a deposit, please go to my on-line shop and select your due date from a drop-down menu
Mini session PHOTO COLLECTIONS are priced at £199 and include full resolution digital files.
