ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
MATERNITY & BABY SESSIONS
Your last trimester, at around 7-8 months, is best for your maternity session. It’s when your bump is large and lovely, but you’re not feeling too uncomfortable (or worried about the possibility of your baby putting in an appearance!)
Maternity sessions usually last around an hour and can take place in your home or outdoors.
The best time to photograph your little one is at 6 – 9 months. Because by then, they’ll be able to sit up on their own. And, ideally, they won’t be mobile yet, so they can’t crawl away from me at high speed!
Depending on the time of year, your session can take place in your home or outdoors – whichever’s going to be most comfortable for you. It should take around an hour. After that point, your baby will probably let us know that they’ve had enough!
As well as the bond between you, I’ll be looking to capture their giggles, wide-eyed wonder and changing expressions. All the details that you’ll struggle to hold on to as they get bigger. Simple, natural and intimate portraits of you and your baby are what I’m aiming for.
ALL PACKAGES INCLUDE
A password protected online gallery to share with family and friends. You’ll be able to view your edited photos in the gallery and share them to social media, if you wish.
The photos that you choose as part of your package will be available to download from your gallery as high resolution, print ready files.
PRINTS & PRODUCTS
I have a beautiful range of fine art prints and books and a full framing service. If you’re planning to frame your photos I would recommend considering getting them professionally printed, my fine art prints are well worth the investment!
Overseas shipping is available for prints and albums.
AFTER THE SESSION
Your edited photographs will be ready to view within 3 weeks of your session.
Prints can be ordered through your gallery and if you would like to order framed prints and products, please ask about my framing service. You can make a free appointment with me so I can help you with the selection process.
I have a selection of beautiful frames, books and wall art samples for you to have a look at and I can help you to decide the best way of displaying your favourite images in your home.
A £100 deposit is required to secure your booking with the remaining balance due on delivery of your web gallery. Images will be released for download and products delivered once full payment has been received.
Payment is by cash or BACs transfer. Overseas clients can make payments through Paypal, if necessary.
If you need to cancel your booking or reschedule due to illness please give me as much notice as possible. If you have an outdoor shoot planned and the weather is not cooperating I’ll give you the option to reschedule.
