Newborn Sessions in our Edinburgh Studio
Book your newborn session before you are 30 weeks pregnant and receive a free mini maternity session with 5 complementary images included in your newborn package.
Session / Booking Fee £149 for babies under ten days old, best day is day 7 of life.
Please plan ahead, book your Due date in with us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We generally are booked 2-3 months ahead. All bookings taken via our website will be confirmed via a quick phone call from our lovely staff, if you have any questions please feel free to ask them via 07546 987 017
The very first question most clients ask is: "how can we book a session if we don't know when baby is going to arrive?"
It's very simple really here is how it works:
We pencil in your due date, which allows us to keep a session available for you for two weeks before and two weeks after your due date. So no matter when baby gets here we always have a session available for you for the four weeks around your due date.
Dads job: When baby arrives and Dad texts all the family to tell them baby is here, we are on that list.
When we receive the text message we will reply with: "congratulations your photography session is: tue at 10am"
Leading up to your session we ask that you start to consider how you would like to display your baby’s portraits. Is there a place above the fireplace in need of a family portrait? Does baby’s room look amazing, but with nothing on the walls? Would you like to create a family heirloom that can be handed down the generations, like a personalised album with handwritten messages of love from extended family members? Start talking to the extended family about how they would like to show off their newest family member. With either small side-table art pieces or a personalised app for their phone so they can show all their friends when they are out.
I handcraft meaningful, timeless, pieces of art for you to display and while you can purchase digital images they are for safe keeping not hiding, so start thinking about how you will show your newest family member how proud you are of them.
Your photography session will be between 2 to 3 hours, this allows time to feed, cuddle and get baby happy, and even have dad fall asleep on my couch. I work from my EH16 Studio where you will be coming to a warm, comfortable, environment fully equipped with everything you may need. With that said I do recommend you pack your photography session bag alongside your hospital bag.
Your photography bag should include:
A change of clothes for both Mum and Dad. With babies it’s a matter of when not if you will be pooed on, but don’t worry most of the time the photographer is the one who it happens to!
Black outfits for both Mum and Dad for that family portrait.
Any special wipes, ointments, creams you may be using for baby.
And a full change of clothes, nappies, and sterilised spare dummy for baby if you are using one.
If you are breastfeeding we will have water, refreshments and a selections of cake and biscuits to keep you well cared for. If you are bottle feeding then please bring three times as much formula with you than you think baby will need as it is thirsty work looking that cute.
Having had a child myself I know how tender you can feel for a couple of weeks after baby is born and for that reason I do have available a double sofa-bed for mum to relax in if needed. The first couple of months of having a new baby can be overwhelming so please feel free to turn up in your PJ’s—the most important part is that you get to the studio we will take care of everything else.
Using the information you have told me about how you wish to display your portraits I will create two different coloured background sets on our uniquely crafted Newborn baby bean bag and one prop set (such as baby in basket etc.), and a selection of black and white family images.
Following your photographic session the images will go through our Art Grade Processing, making them as sweet as your memories. This is the part of the process that takes them from a great photo to a piece of art, high grade perfection. This process cannot be rushed and does take two weeks, an appointment will be made for you to return for your presentation where you will select and purchase your art package. Don't worry we have tissues
