Newborn Photo Session Information
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy to give us an estimated due date, we will then make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact us to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
All photo sessions will be taken in our new studio in Blackrock Village, South County Dublin.
Newborn sessions can take 2-3 hours which gives us plenty of time for feeding, cuddles and getting to know one another.
Newborn + Sibling sessions can take longer and we recommend coming first with the newborn and then the rest of the family arrives a little later. We always find a solution that fits your family.
What to wear?
You can take the lead in the colour scheme of your session or we are happy to advise. We would however, recommend avoiding very strong colours, logos that will outdate, big stripes, patterns. Basically avoid anything that will draw your attention away from your baby. Lovely neutrals always work well. For families, it’s nice to coordinate, but you don’t need to “match”.
What to bring?
We have everything needed to photograph your baby – nappy covers, wraps, hats, etc. Please feel free to bring any special toy, gift, blanket that you would like to include in a photo as we’re happy to incorporate anything personal into the photos.
What happens after the session?
Two weeks after your session, we will email you with a password for your private online proofing gallery. The online gallery will remain active for 2 weeks. During that time, you are invited back to the studio for a viewing and and we will assist you in making a decision on the products which can be seen any time in the studio. We will send you an invoice with order and payment details. Payment can be made by bank transfer, credit card, debit card, or cash.
Once full payment is received, your photo products will be designed and ordered. Depending on the product, they can take 2-3 weeks for delivery. All images will be stored and archived after 2 months of the gallery. Once the gallery has been archived there will be a €50 fee to reactivate your gallery for another week.
