2. The Photoshoot
The photoshoot experience is just that; an experience which is relaxed, memorable and above all, fun.
When you walk through the doors, you can unwind, grab a cuppa and take some time to yourself on one of my comfy sofas. I’ll gently rock your baby in my arms until he falls asleep and is ready to be photographed.
My photoshoots are COVID-compliant; the room is well ventilated and deep cleaned after every session. I also wear a face mask and gloves, with my hair tied back as well as fresh, clean clothes.
The session is very much baby-led, if he needs changing, feeding or a cuddle, there’s plenty of time for this so the shoot never feels rushed or uneasy. My firstborn was a very sensitive baby and so I’m used to babies who can’t settle easily. Often I don’t start photographing until half an hour after you arrive, to make sure Baby is fully comfortable.
I typically start photographing babies on the blanket bed first, using the colours and textures we’ve talked about in the Consultation stage, moving to the floor and backdrops a little later in the session. We’ll also do some flattering ‘parent shots’ of you with your baby; believe me you’ll thank me for it in years to come even if you don’t feel like doing this now 🙂
Above all, you can sit back and relax while I take care of the whole session. I have undergone extensive training in handling newborns safely and being a mum of two, I can reassure you that I am confident holding and posing babies safely.
