When should I book my session?
The best time to book your session is during your pregnancy. The ideal time for a Studio session is 6-12 days when your baby has developed their feeding habits, but is still nice and sleepy and flexible. I can do a New Arrival session any day once you and baby are slightly settled.
Plan to tell me when you have had the baby so I can ensure I have a day available for you. We will then find the best day and time for your session. I tend to book session start times between 9.30 and 11.30am to coincide with baby's biggest nap although other times are available.

Should I book a 'Studio' or 'New Arrival' session?
The session price is the same, but the output will be quite different. I can create albums or wall art from either session - it will be the look and feel of the images that is determined by the location.
This session is baby-led ideally around nap time, with plenty of time for feeds, changes and comforting. I will capture the features of your sweet bundle, and show the bond that forms in such a short time. It is my aim to create at least one 'fine art' piece from each session - an image that is unique, serene and special to you - one that would be best displayed on the wall. I will also use my props and blankets to show the cuteness of your baby and how small and cuddly they are in those first few weeks.
It is up to you, but I strongly encourage parents to be involved in some of the images.
NEW ARRIVAL SESSION
These sessions are held at your home with as little disturbance as possible to your routine. The aim is to capture the interactions between the family and record memories in the baby's first home. I will capture your emotions, baby's features, perhaps any visitors, meaningful things that I see whilst I'm there - anything that shows how important this baby is to you. I aim to create memories for you and your child to treasure and talk about for years to come.
We can discuss which would suit you best in a preconsultation if you are still not sure!
Digitals, albums, prints or wall art?
I'm a great believer in having something on your wall that cheers you up every day. Whether it be a reminder of how sweet your child is (some of the time) or how you have changed. For that reason, I encourage you to get your images printed in some way shape or form. I can show you examples of each, either in the preconsultation or at the session itself.
