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 🙂
