Sessions are usually booked up to 1 to 2 months in advance, but I hold some bookings open for ad hoc sessions so please do get in touch to check.</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>If you are wanting to book a newborn session then I would hold bookings open for 2 weeks either side of your due date (allowing for early or late babies!) you would then let me know when your little one arrives so that we can book in suitable slot for you. If you have just given birth and haven't booked, please still get in touch as I may have a session available for you.</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><div class="divider"></div><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><h5 class="sub-header">How old does my baby need to be for a newborn shoot?</h5><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>For newborns, it is recommended that you schedule your session before your baby arrives, so that I can pencil in your due date. These time-sensitive sessions should ideally take place within the baby's first 10 days. During those first few days, your little one will sleep more soundly for a longer period of time, and 'curl up' more willingly. But don't worry if your baby has passed this age, this is just the 'ideal' and I will still be able to capture some amazing images, as the older they get the cuter they are when they're awake!</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><div class="divider"></div><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><h5 class="sub-header">What to wear?</h5><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>Clothing is a critical part of making a wonderful photograph. I always like to see a child's clothing reflect them and their personality. I love colour, as it represents such a lively fun time in a child's life... however, something simple in a solid colour also works well. Trendy and retro clothing can also add great impact to images and work very well for older children. I encourage you to bring your favourite hat, scarf, or other accessory... wool and other textures create wonderful detail in photographs. If the session is for a family group, try to keep a similar theme to your outfit choices, using like colours and styles. Jeans always work well for groups, with white or light coloured tops.</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>Newborns are photographed in as little as possible. I have many props (hats & headbands) but please do bring along any favourite items such as blanket or special teddy that you might like in the shots.</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><div class="divider"></div><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><h5 class="sub-header">When will I see my photographs?</h5><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>Within 2 days of your shoot I will post a sneak peak from your session on my blog and Facebook, I can also email you this on request - this will be a selection of 2-3 images and you will be able to share these with friends and family.</p><!--mep-nl--><!--mep-tab--><p>Within 3-4 weeks I will present 25-35 fully processed images to you, including black and white versions, from these you will be able to order a range of products including prints, acrylic prints, canvas and albums.
