So what happens in a Newborn Photoshoot?
Photoshoots are held in my Carnoustie Studio and generally take around 2-3 hours. This allows for plenty of feeding (or cuddle) breaks for baby. I have a lovely selection of backdrops, props, hats, headbands etc.
Generally we will start on the beanbag for more simple shots focussing purely on baby. We can do this using neutral colours, more colourful or a mix of both!
I then move on to my gorgeous bespoke wooden backdrop where we will get a variety of photographs of baby in around 3 different props… be it a basket, suitcase etc… or something you have perhaps brought along yourself! I’ve had guitars, motorbike helmets… a milk urn (one of the stranger ones for sure!)… I like to take a random idea and create something beautiful!
If you have a special item you want to include in the session or even your pet then just let me know and I can come up with something super special! It will be super relaxed so you can chill out and enjoy a warm cuppa.
Family and sibling shots can be taken too! I know the though of getting in front of a camera so soon after birth can be terrifying! However these are done in a lovely tasteful and intimate way, keeping in nice and close focussing on the connection with baby. You could be in your pyjama bottoms and no-one would know!!
Around a week later you will come back to the studio to view your beautiful finished images. We will then go through all the product choices and choose the perfect option for displaying your images. I offer a variety of options such as framing, prints & digital. I have also put together some awesome collections of my most requested products!
Newborn portrait sessions can also be booked alongside a maternity session and/or 6 month and 1 year portrait sessions.
