NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER THANET

WELCOME

Thanet Newborn Photographer

I have been photographing newborns for nearly 19 years now! As a qualified Midwife and Neonatal ICU trained nurse and trained Newborn Photographer, I have worked with newborns most of my life and so can assure you that your baby will be in safe hands and I would take the utmost care when posing your precious new baby.

Newborn Shoots are best done within the first 2 weeks when babies are sleepy and more flexible. In the first few weeks newborns sleep very deeply and are curled up still after being like this in the womb. So are easier to pose in all those cute poses you see.

Absolutely amazing!!! Tracey has photographed both of my daughters, when they were newborn and also for their sitting photo shoots! She did an amazing job, not just photographing them, but also how she was with them both, so lovely! Would definitely recommend.

When is the best time to book our Newborn Shoot?

A Newborn Shoot is best booked while you are still pregnant. I usually suggest booking after your 12 week scan and by your 20 week scan to be guaranteed a space. Do get in touch as soon as you can while pregnant. Because babies are very rarely born on their due dates, I can only book a limited number of babies per week in order to give me the flexibility to accommodate early and overdue pre-booked babies. Pre-booked babies will ALWAYS take priority over a baby booking in last minute.

 

What if my baby is early/late?

When you book your Newborn Shoot, I reserve a space for you in my diary around the time of your due date, but the actual date is only confirmed once baby arrives. Pre-booking though does guarantee that I will be able to offer you a space within the crucial first 2 weeks and allows me to juggle my diary to fit all expected babies in. You would then just need to notify me of baby’s birth within 24-48 hours and I will offer you a date(s) which I have kept free for you.

 

When is the best time for my Newborn Shoot after baby arrives?

 Newborn Shoots are best done within the first 2 weeks when babies are sleepy and more flexible. During these first few weeks, babies are still in the sleepy newborn phase.. This means they go into a very deep sleep and can be more easily moved and manipulated into position. They have been used to being curled up in the womb and so are easier to curl up and position. They are more floppy when sleeping in this stage especially when “milk drunk” just after a feed. Muscle tone at this stage increases with every day. Further after the 2 week period babies have a growth spurt and are generally more restless. Around 2-6 weeks is also the stage at which all the milk spots an appear on their faces…..and while this can be dealt with to some degree by editing in Photoshop……it makes the editing process more of a challenge. If your baby is born prematurely, then this window of opportunity is longer. I have done newborn type shoots right up to 7 or 8 weeks though, but have to use different props and to do less challenging poses. I am always prepared to try to do a newborn-like shoot in the 2-8 week period if I have the space to fit you in. So please don’t feel you have missed the opportunity if your baby is older than the preferred 2 weeks. I will always try to squeeze in a Newborn Shoot into my diary. I will always do my very best to be able to capture images of baby in these first few weeks.

 

Can we have photos take with our baby?

Yes. I encourage this. Your baby will thank you for them one day and will never again be this tiny in your arms. Capture that memory for yourselves……..and your child. These photos can be and arms and hands and baby shots only, or portrait shots with your faces included….as you prefer.
You will need to book the full Premier Newborn Shoot for this. The Mini Newborn Shoot is a shorter version and is just all about baby.

 

Can we include our older children in the shoot?

 Yes absolutely and again, I encourage this. Welcoming a new baby into your family is something which is shared by all of you. I will happily include any siblings and/or Family photos. For school age children, I would split the shoot into 2 with one hour reserved on a weekend for the siblings and baby and 3 hours during the week for baby alone.

Where will our Newborn Shoot take place?

All Newborn Shoots happen in my home studio in Broadstairs, CT10 3HU. My studio is all set up for newborn photography and this is where I have my extensive range of props. It is a lovely quiet environment perfectly suited to this kind of shoot.

 

What will my baby wear for the shoot?

I generally photograph babies naked or with nappies on but covered. I have an extensive range of wraps for this. 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.

 

We are expecting Twins, will we need to pay for a double 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 than 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.

Please do book as early as possible as planning for a twin shoot is more involved and I may wish to buy in matching outfits, hats or headbands as generally I only have one of each of these.

When do I see my images?

You will be invited back to my studio 3-4 weeks after your session to view your final gallery of approximately 20-25 beautifully enhanced and hand edited images. It’s at this point when you may decide which package you may want to purchase. At no time are you are under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don’t wish to. Should you, however, wish to order just a few images or prints rather than a package, due to the time involved in processing, ordering and printing etc. or creating the multiple versions of files for USB there is a minimum order fee of £399
