"...And Suddenly You Were My Everything"
Here at from Lizzy With Love Photography, we specialize in newborn photography and pride ourselves on how we treat each session with the care and love of your baby. We undertake training courses every year to make sure we can produce the best images we can and keep up with safety training. We know how precious your baby is, as we are parents ourselves.
When do I book?
We usually provisionally book you in for your newborn session around a week after your due date and stay in touch. We only book a certain amount of newborns in a month so We can fit everyone in. Babys are unpredictable, so if they are late or early, don't worry!
Ideally your newborn will be between 4-14 days old, but We can photograph newborns up to 5 weeks, the later we photograph the baby, the less chance we will get of getting those curled up poses and baby will spend more time awake. But...to be honest, the awake images can be just as special as those sleepy curled up images. So getting asleep and awake photos is very special.
There is a £99 non-refundable deposit to book, which will then be deducted from your chosen package at your viewing appointment.
What to wear?
If you are wanting family and sibling photos with your new arrival then Plain white, black, or grey tops/dresses look great, simple colour's, no patterns or logos. Jeans and plain tops photograph great too. If you need help to decide, we will discuss this with you after you have booked. Also, the studio can get very hot, so layers are the best.
How long does the session take?
For our Newborn Sessions we allow up to 3-3.5 hours. It is usually baby led. Baby often wakes and wants feeding or changing.
If you are bringing other young siblings, it may be best you have someone pick them up after their bit is done as little ones can get very bored in the studio environment. Or, make sure you bring toys or a tablet for them to watch.
We can provide tea/coffee, water and biscuits, but if you want something more substantial, feel free to bring your own, here we have a fully equip kitchen facilities.
After the session....
So when your session is complete, I take the images and back them up on 2 separate hard drives. I then choose the best out of the session and edit and enhance them, each one at a time. I will make them extra special! I do edit out dry skin, lumps, bumps and spots! I also carefully edit the images to give them that wow factor. So each edit can take between 10 and 30 minutes to complete. This is very important to me as I strive for perfection for all my clients.
You will then be invited back within 2-3 weeks to view your images on a HD screen and then you can choose the package you want. You can also order add on's. We offer professional prints, and stunning pieces of Wall Art. It may be worth you having a think of where you would like to put some Wall Art in your home and possibly measure up. You can even take of photo of the room so we can help decide what would look awesome too.
I will also do a "sneak peek" on my professional Facebook page so you can see an image before waiting for your viewing appointment. Obviously I will ask for your permission first.
