There's no such thing as a silly question!
Do you have a studio?
I do have a home studio but its very small so It's only really suitable for sitter, cake smash and child portrait sessions. For newborns and family portraits I will travel to you.
What if my child or myself are unwell on the day of our shoot?
Your booking fee in non refundable but transferrable if you are unwell. Just let me know as soon as you can and we can book you in for another day, you will not loose your booking fee. Being a mother of two there's also a small chance I will have to re-arrange. We'll just have to be flexible with each other
What should we wear for our session?
Plain white, pastel or natural colours work best for family shots. Avoid bright colours and patterns as they may distract form your beautiful faces. For a family portrait it's lovely if you can wear matching colours eg. blues or white and denim.
Make sure bra straps are well covered.
For a newborn/ family shoot lighter colours will also work best against the black backdrop. Siblings should wear plain clothes in white or the colour of the chosen colour scheme for the shoot.
When should I book my newborn session?
You can book your newborn session as soon as you have a due date.
What age is classed as 'newborn'?
The best time to photograph a newborn is 3-9 days old but I will class a baby as newborn up until 4 weeks.
What if my newborn poo's and wee's everywhere?
That is soooo normal. In fact, I can't think of a single newborn session where I haven't been at least been peed on but that's perfectly fine! I always bring a spare change of clothes. I really don't mind how mucky it gets, so long as I capture beautiful shots for you to treasure forever, I'm happy.
Can we include our other children in our newborn session?
Of course! We absolutely want to photograph all your children together. I just need to know before the session so I can prepare accordingly.
Will you use our images on your website?
Being in the business of images, I do usually show recent work on my website, Facebook and blog posts. This allows everyone to see my style my work, What colours, set ups and props are available. If you need to keep your images private due to safety reasons then of course they will be kept private and I will not use them on my website, You'd just need to let me know upon booking.
Are you insured?
Of course. I am fully insured with 'Photoguard Insurance' for professional photographers. Certificates are available to view on request.
Are you Qualified?
Yes, 4 years of official photography qualifications as well as additional specialist newborn safety training.
