How to prepare for your newborn session:

Helpful Guidelines:

Please bring for your session:

- supply of milk and nappies,

- dummy, if baby is using it

Try not to feed your baby for 2-3h before the photoshoot, and please try don't put the baby to sleep before your scheduled time if it's possible of course. Baby should be fed once you arrive or at the last moment before you arrive.  That gives us higher chances of your baby going into deep sleep.

During session temperature in the studio will be high (25°-28°).

Please notify us about any healthy problems or conditions babies suffer from, as things like colic/constipation/tongue tie, problems with hips and others.

Recording videos and taking photos with phones/cameras is prohibited unless agreed with us.

During the session there are two carers allowed. If the session is not combined with a family photo shoot or other fine art session, siblings can not be in the studio.

Please be a few minutes before scheduled session time. Photo shoots are “from to” . It means a 1 hour session for example will take place between 1pm to 2pm.

-FULL PAYMENT MUST BE MADE ON THE DAY OF PHOTOSHOOT

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL BE IN THE GALLERY?

CAN WE GUARANTEE NEWBORN POSES?

The number of photos in the gallery depends on many factors. First of all, on how the session is going and how the child behaves. Second, what package did you choose.

Deciding on poses/shots we take, unfortunately it's not entirely up to our clients or us, we cannot guarantee achieving certain poses with all babies. We aim to make photoshoots a pleasant experience for both parents and babies. We take 3 attempts to pose and if it happens that the baby doesn't like it, we will NOT force the baby again. We'll try a different pose. Also, we cannot promise that the baby will wear accessories or clothes prepared. It happens that some babies do not like headbands or hats.

CAN YOU TAKE PHOTOS IN OUR HOME?

Yes. If you have your own ideas for the session, tell us about it. We have among the best newborn photographers in London, UK who can bring your vision to life. If you only want natural photos, let us know a few days before the session and send sample photos so we know what you expect. Don't leave it to the last minute, when the posing bag and props are already set up we can't change it

CAN I BRING MY PROPS?

Of course you can. If there is something important to you, something you would like to see next to your baby in the picture, bring it. To be sure that the photo will be consistent let me know what it is. I will prepare the scenery to emphasize what is most important ... your child and the prop.

If you still want to get all the unretouched photos that were taken, you can buy them. The gallery raw photos price depends on the type of session and the number of images
