Newborn Photoshoot

When to book:
For those curled up, sleepy, posed newborn pictures, I suggest photographing your baby between 6 to 12 days after birth. During this time, newborns are at their sleepiest. Their sleep can be more easily disturbed the older they get. Because of this, it can make it more difficult to capture some of the posed photographs.

You provide us with your due date and we book you in based on this date. However, as we know, babies are very often late or early so if we have to move your photo shoot, you do not lose your deposit.

If your baby is older than 4 weeks, please still get in touch – Often an “older” newborn can still be coaxed into a pose or two, so don’t despair. I have photographed “older” newborns with great success. No matter what, we will capture beautiful portraits of your baby.

On booking you will be asked which package you’d like to book. This won’t be set in stone and can be upgraded if you wish once you’ve viewed all your images.

Family Shots:
All packages can include family and/or sibling shots.  You may not feel your best and it is OK to skip the newborn family pics if you’re really not feeling up to it. But I do encourage parents to get at least one portrait of themselves with their brand new baby. These portraits don’t need to see the light of day today, but in the future, you will very likely be glad you have them.

What to Expect: A wonderful, fun and stress free experience.
Newborn photo shoots should be a fun and relaxing experience for everyone. On arrival you will be made a brew and we can then sit and chat about what you’d like from your photo shoot (although we’ve probably discussed this on booking). We will also chat about your newborn’s feeding schedule and work the shoot around this.

My studio is a warm and comfortable place. Parents are welcome to relax on the couches for some well deserved ‘Me’ time, or sit close to me and watch the magic and beauty of their newborn being photographed. It really is a wonderful experience and I hear this from parents all the time.

Depending on your newborn baby, the shoot can last from 2 to possibly 4 hours – and I allow plenty of time for feeding, soothing and cuddles throughout.

I realise how very precious your newborn baby is to you and I take the greatest care during the shoot, and ensure that your baby is kept lovely and warm at all times.

After your Photo Shoot:
Following your Tiny Violets Photo Shoot, a Gallery of image proofs will be uploaded to a Customer Only website – usually within 7-10 days from the date of your shoot.   Your gallery will be live for 3 weeks and from here you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home and as many times as you like.

Once you have chosen your favourites, you can call or email me with your choices.

Once chosen, images are fully edited and sent to you for approval before the final order is completed.

I hope I’ve answered any questions you might have above, but please do get in touch if you have any further queries.  I look forward to meeting you and your baby soon, Gaynor x
