Your Newborn Session – Newborn Photographer Poole & Bournemouth

Booking your newborn shoot is easier than it sounds! Obviously we don’t book a shoot date, we save that for when your little one has in fact arrived.  To book you contact me within a few days of the birth and I will send you available appointments that work around your baby’s birth date.

There is a vast selection of colours, props, outfits and pretty things to personalise your newborn shoot too.  So if you have a colour theme in the room you want your wood block or canvas then bare this in mind when we’re collecting items for the shoot.

A normal shoot lasts around 2-2.5 hours (sometimes longer if baby needs to feed often).  This shoot time includes newborn set ups, siblings and parent shots too.

What if my baby doesn’t sleep??

I get asked this question a lot.  When you book your newborn shoot with me, I will send information on how to prepare for the shoot including how to get your baby as sleepy as possible.  If your baby is awake with no intention of sleeping despite this preparation there isn’t much we can do! We wait patiently.  Lol.  I’ll use the opportunity to get awake shots and if they’re very calm, maybe we can just continue the shoot.  (although in my experience, when babies are awake, they’re moving, wriggling and fussing sometimes too)

 

Here is what a full gallery can expect to look like 🙂

Twin Cake Smash Poole

Absolutely LOVED this twin cake smash shoot! Such two beautiful little ladies and they’re big sister Heidi came for their shoot!

 

Cake provided by the awesome Cakes By Ana

My cake Smash sessions have the option to include a milestone shoot prior to the actual cake smash and an additional option to bath and bubbles at the end in the vintage tub!

Contact me now to book a date for your cake smash too – I need at least 4-6 weeks notice currently.  I have three difference packages for your cake smash depending on your budget and what you’d like included!

 

This was the all inclusive with milestone shoot and bath and bubbles.  Don’t forget you choose the cake design too from our range of cakes and we offer dairy and gluten free options too!Cake Smash Poole Bournemouth Cake Smash Poole Bournemouth Cake Smash Poole Bournemouth Childrens photographer PooleFamily Photographer PooleFamily Photographer PooleCake Smash Bournemouth PooleCake Smash DorchesterTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash PooleTwin Cake Smash Poole

We decided to do things different with Baby Bobby! We went for a very natural and organic feel to the shoot, keeping things as laid back as possible, limited posing and just getting all the little details.

Capturing moments as opposed to the more traditional posed styles.

These shoots are just 45 minutes long so much shorter than the normal 2 – 2.5 hours needed for others.  There is still some preparation required prior to the shoot.

Contact me to book in for yours – these are ideal for babies 6 weeks and under.  The more notice I have (ideally before baby arrives) the better 🙂

What an amazing year for my self-employed business!

I worked hard, I cried, I nearly gave up and I lost sleep and I wouldn’t change a thing because that’s honestly how hard it is to balance work, family, life.  My photography business will ALWAYS be a part time job. I never want to regret lost time with Jaxon before he starts school.

I met wonderful and inspiring parents.

I held 114 beautiful special newborns and 4 sets of twins.

I helped smash 11 cakes.

I captured 22 sitting babies! Drool included.

I heard your birth stories.

I saw your anxieties as new parents.

I appreciated my supportive family.

I lost count how many times I was pooed  / wee’d / vomitted / farted on (by newborns btw!)

I wondered sometimes what it would be like to go back to my office job. Especially on the hard days.

I ruined 13 pairs of leggings.

I broke one £1000 lens.

I ran a workshop with one of my best friend. Thanks Nat! xxx

I mentored 26 people.

I listened to feedback and I listened when others wanted feedback.

I got grey hairs this year!

I felt frustration when I would never hear back from clients after receiving  their images.

I sometimes felt unvalued.

I fixed that.

I remember that sometimes their too busy to even get a hot drink and breakfast  – like me.

I stopped trying to value my work based on what I thought others thought of me.

I started valuing my work through MY eyes.

I had an image go viral! (go here to see amazing it did! https://www.facebook.com/kidswithdownsyndrome/photos/pb.451390818260256.-2207520000.1451670899./932590386806961/?type=3&theater)

I made new friends.

I moved on from some people who were not good for me.

I learned how to say NO.

I lost over 2stone in weight!

I put on a stone again . . .  :/

I became a stronger person.

I made 2015 a good year.

For some of my companions, this was not their year.  It will be a year I think they may want to forget but can’t.   Love you Rubes and Jamie!!!

 

Deeply, from the heart, THANK YOU.

 

Yours,

 

Katy

  • Savanna - What a beautiful list of things to be thankful for, followed by gorgeous images!ReplyCancel

Her mummy had the BEST nickname for her : “Truffle pig” . This was absolutely the most fitting – she was on a feeding frenzy this day – we had to work quick and in-between her epic snacking!

This is why newborn shoots can take 2-3 hours. We need time to feed, settle, pose (REPEAT!). It’s best to just come prepared to relax and put your feet up. Catch up on your FB feed, read the news, have a nap! Whatever you want.
