How long will the session be?
All sessions are different and depends on the models in question. I dont clock watch so as a rough guide
Maternity - 1 hour
Newborn - 3 hours
Family - 1 hour
Cake Smash 1 hour
Fairies - 30 mins
Mini Sessions - 30 mins
When should i book in?
Most of my clients book their newborn sessions in once they have had their 20 week scan. I dont take newborn bookings before this.
All other sessions are best booked in once you know that you would like me to create your memories for you.
Do you work weekends?
Yes I do but not every weekend as this is valuable family time for my own family.
On your prices do I have to choose a package?
No! the packages just happen to be at the top of the pricing guide! You can use the pricing guide as you wish just read the info first.
How will I know what date my newborn session will be on as I don't know when my baby will arrive?
I pencil your due date in my diary so I have an idea when you baby will arrive. As babies rarely arrive on their due dates, I give you 3 provisional dates around your dd and I only accept a limited number of babies per month. All I ask is that you contact me when your new lil one is here so we can schedule the actual session date.
Are there photo's included in the session fee?
In a Newborn session you recieve a collage print of all those tiny parts. In all other sessions no photo's are included in the session fee. You simply choose the package or products you would like from the Pricing Guide.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes i do! These work by paying 50% first payment then 2 payments of 25% these are over 3 months.
What happends after the session?
So, after your session i get to work and create a beautiful proof gallery for you. This will then be sent via email to you password protected. The album will be active for 3 days in this time you can sit down with whom you wish and choose which images you would like! You simply them send over your order to me, once i have your order you will be send an invoice which should be paid straight away and then i can process your order.
How do i get my images?
Digitals are availbe by download (you MUST save them somewhere safe)
Prints and products will be ready for collection only (you will be notified when ready)
What do i need to do before my session?
Please dont worry about having to change your routine or feeding. When arriving and settled we will do a min baby massage taster then its a good idea to undress baby and wrap in thier own blanket and give them a good feed.
The temperature in my studio will be at least 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees F). I do this to keep your (naked) baby warm, snug and sleepy.
Sessions typically last around 3 hours and sometimes longer if your baby is a light sleeper, very alert or hungry. The easiest way to ensure a sleepy baby is the willingness to nurse/bottle-feed on and off during the session, so bring extra bottles if you are bottle feeding.
If you are using one, bring a dummy. They call them soothers and pacifiers for a reason.
Before a sitter/family session or a cake smash session-
Make sure our model has a really good nap. We want them rested and full of energy!
