Frequently asked questions about Newborn Shoots

Before the shoot

WOW! I LOVE a twin photo shoot! Even though it can be such hard work with 2 babies. And no, I charge the same price for twins as I do for a single baby. With a twin pregnancy, due dates are even less reliable that with single baby and most twins are likely to arrive early. I would do a twin shoot as soon as possible after both babies are home and well enough. Twins are generally smaller and because of this and an earlier arrival, the time frame in which to photograph them at the optimal newborn stage is usually longer than the normal 2 weeks. Just keep me updated on your and their progress along the way.

Further, just to add, I am a qualified Midwife and a qualified Neonatal ICU Nurse and so I have worked with pre-term newborns a great deal of my life. I am very comfortable handling tiny babies safely.

I generally photograph babies naked or with nappies on but covered. You do not need to bring any clothing for baby. Most newborn clothing is too big for new babies, so please don’t worry to bring any clothes. I do also have a lot of specially designed newborn photography outfits like tutus and lacey rompers for girls and little trousers, dungarees and hat sets for boys. When babies have no nappy on, I am quite prepared for little accidents. In fact I expect them to! I have flat nappy liners and a working washing machine and expect to do a little cleaning up.

I usually do these shots on a Black Background. Black is always very flattering, especially if you are feeling a little self conscious of you post baby body. You would need to bring/wear black trousers and tops for this. I do though have Men’s plain T-shirts with no logos for your partner…… Or, he may want to consider photos with no shirt? Skin to skin photos with your baby do look lovely.
I do have some other background options if you would prefer and can also use a Grey, Cream Or Caramel/Beige background. You would need to provide clothing suitable. Please discuss with me if you prefer one of these choices. I can assist you with colour choice options for clothing and send you examples of these colour backgrounds to assist with your choice.
