I adore capturing the tiny details of a newborn baby. From their tiny little toes to their perfect eyelashes. Its important to grab these details when you can because as a parent myself I know only too well that this time does not last long.
The best time for a newborn shoot is between 4 and 10 days old. I find that at this age they are easier to settle. After 2 weeks colic, baby acne and reflux are some of the things that can rear their ugly heads for the poor wee little ones and make settling a little harder.
The best time to book is around your due date. I am flexible with newborn shoots, they rarely make their appearance on the expected due date and this is fine. Once your baby has arrived we can arrange a time for your shoot.
The shoot takes place in the comfort of your home. I like you all to feel nice and relaxed and I think it adds a personal touch having your home as a backdrop for your babies first professional picture. I bring along props and anything I might like to incorporate into the shoot.
In warmer seasons newborn shoots can also be done on location.
