FAQ

I don't know what to wear for my Maternity/Newborn sessions?

I have two fantastic guides which explain everything you should need to know about what to wear on your shoots. I would recommend them to anyone who's thinking of having a maternity or newborn photoshoot, as they cover various different styles, themes and body shapes and sizes.

When you book your photoshoot in with me I will send the guides across to you, which will then help you prepare for your session. I am also available to contact anytime if you need more help or my personal opinion when deciding your outfit(s)!

When is the ideal time for my Maternity session and when should I book it in with you?

I recommend you book your session to fall between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy. This is the perfect time to allow your belly to fully pop, but also means it's not too late in the pregnancy that we may miss your shoot, if your baby decides to come before your due date.

It’s never too early to schedule your maternity session in. Sometimes I can accommodate last minute requests, but I usually recommend at least 2-3 weeks notice. .

What if my baby doesn't settle?

Whether it's to fill their tummies again, a quick nappy change or just a simple cuddle, we are able to stop for as many breaks as your baby may need during your shoot. The sessions also take place in your own home, which usually helps ease your baby, as you're within the comforts of your baby's everyday life.

When is the ideal time for my Newborn session and when should I book it in with you?

The ideal time to have your newborn session is within the first 14 days from your baby’s birth. During this time, your little ones arms and legs still curl up easily, enabling us to create those cute newborn poses. They also tend to fall back to sleep after they have been fed, which helps us with those poses again and also helps us switch from setting to setting without disturbing your baby too much. After the first two weeks your baby will have a growth spurt and they will stretch out more, which makes it harder to photograph the more 'posed' images.

After a few weeks your baby will start to become more active and will try to look around more as they are starting to develop their sight more and more. After this time we can still capture some gorgeous images, however, the typical newborn poses won’t be possible and this would be more suited for a lifestyle session instead.

To schedule your session it is recommended to get in contact with me during your pregnancy. That way we can book in around your due date and see closer to the time to re-arrange the exact timing of your session.

Where will my Maternity session take place?

Maternity sessions are best to take place in any outside location of your choice. There are a variety of scenes that you can choose from, ranging from beautiful woodlands, colourful meadows, or even at the beach if you're up for it! And my favourite time of day to shoot them is during Golden Hour (just before the sun sets).

If you're uncomfortable shooting outside then I also offer a more lifestyle themed session which can take place in the comforts of your own home, where you also have the choice of adding some studio style portraits onto your session too! I will bring my mobile studio to you and have various coloured backdrops for you to choose from.
