Preparing for your newborn shoot

We understand exactly what the first couple of weeks with a newborn is like which is why we try and make your session as stress free as possible. There’s very little for you to worry about preparing for the session other than a few basics. Below we have answered a few of the frequently asked questions and put together a checklist of things to bring.
A few suggestions of things to do before you leave home
  • Dress baby in front opening baby grow with no vest.
  • Feed baby just before leaving home.
  • Try and keep baby awake before session.
  • Please let us know if they are there any medical issues we should be aware of.

Arriving at the Studio

Please try and arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time so that we do not overrun and have enough time to get the best pictures we can. It’ll also give you plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable before the fun starts! When you arrive at the studio you’ll be able to see samples of some of our work and amazing wall art in The Photo Cafe. This is also the chance for us to discuss what type of pictures you’d like us to create. Arrive early enough and they’ll certainly be time for a delicious hot chocolate or flat white before your session.

Your studio newborn shoot

We allow a couple of hours for each session so there’s plenty of time for varies poses and looks during the shoot. In terms of clothing, it is best to bring a change of outfit for yourselves. We have a variety of backgrounds, props and setups designed especially for newborns.

After your newborn shoot

At the end of your photo session we will arrange a convenient time for you to return for your personal viewing appointment where you will then get to view your edited photos. Any additional family members are always welcome too.
