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.

CAN WE GUARANTEE NEWBORN POSES?
CAN YOU TAKE PHOTOS IN OUR HOME?
Yes we can. We currently offer home sessions where I can set up a small studio in a suitable room. To be sure that we have enough space and good working conditions, We will ask for a description of the place and sometimes also for photos of the room. Session in your house is extra pay. If you would prefer a studio session I invite you to my studio near Wembley.
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.
