Your Pre-shoot guide
Hello, and thanks for booking me to create beautiful photos and memories of your newborn baby.
I’m sure you might have a few questions about your photoshoot, so here I’ll try to answer them.
I’m all about giving you and your family memories to cherish forever.
A family photoshoot should be a fun experience with the reward of beautiful photos to share with your friends and family, that’s what I’m here to give you.
All about your photoshoot
What should we wear?
This is probably the question I get asked the most.
Something you feel comfortable in is always good, if you feel comfortable, you will look more relaxed in your photos.
Light colours are best, so really do try to avoid dark clothes or with bright/bold patterns. We want the focus to be on you and not you clothes.
Neutral tones work well, whites, creams, beige and pastel colours like pale pink or blue.
For baby, patterned nappies are a great idea, they look much nicer in photos!
Where will my photoshoot take place?
We will have discussed the exact location when booking your photoshoot.
If you have choosen to have a home session then we will try to use a few rooms in your house, so it helps if you can prepare these areas by having a little tidy up. 🙂
Your lounge is idea, particularly by the window and using your sofa.
It can also be really nice to have some photos using your bed, so a nice light coloured bed spread would look lovely.
If the weather allows and you have a nice garden we can also use your garden as a location for photos.
How long will our photoshoot take?
Your photoshoot will take from 1.5 – 2.5 hours.
I don’t want to rush you, so allow for 2.5 hours, but we may finish sooner if you’re all superstar models! 🙂
Do you photograph the whole family?
While your photoshoot is about your newborn baby, it’s lovely to photograph you as a family, indiviudually with baby and siblings and baby too!
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the photoshoot?
I mentioned before to have a little tidy up if you are having a home session. Also make sure the house is warm enough that baby will be happy to sleep.
Feed and change your baby as you normally would.
There will also be time during your session for feeding and changing if needed, so don’t worry if the photoshoot timing doesn’t match your babies routine.
Should I have props for the photoshoot?
Props are not nessessary, as I will aim to create natural photos.
However if you would like to include a prop I will encompass this into your photoshoot.
e.g I have photographed a newborn in his dad’s police helmet.
What safety precautions do you take?
Your babies safety is always the most important consideration, so I will always ask that you are on hand to support your babies head where needed.
