ABOUT OLIVIA'S NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOTS
WHY BOOK OLIVIA
As a newborn photographer, I will hold, soothe and pose your baby gently and safety. I am not only a mother myself (this alone isn't a qualification for posing newborns!) but I am trained by some of the best trainers in newborn art, to ensure your little ones are moved around safely, keeping a close watch on their breathing, colouring, and temperature. My studio will be heated to similar temperatures you had in the hospital. This is because newborns have an inability to control their own body temperature. I am often called a baby whisperer, but I like to believe babies have a sense of security with me and that is why they relax, this also enables parents to relax. I am one the first few people who will handle your baby for such a big period of time (full newborn sessions take 3 hours) allowing for feeds and changes where needed. Apart from family, not even your midwife handles your baby for this long, so I am always honoured to be chosen to capture your images and pour my heart and soul into each session, my clients often comment they can see I love what I do.
behind the scenes
NEWBORN BABY SESSION INFO
Olivia offers two types of Newborn sessions.
Posed Portrait Sessions & wrapped sessions for older babies.
POSED: Session is 2-3 hours where baby is asleep and posed, moving between poses, interjected with feeds and changes. These sessions can be booked any time from your 20 week scan. A retainer fee of £99 is required to guarantee a space in my diary.
You book in a date two weeks from your due date and we will amend this date if needed around baby birth date. This fee is non refundable as I will often have to turn away late newborn enquiries as preference is always given to my pre booked clients.
WRAPPED: Session is where Baby is NOT sleep posed, baby is wrapped (swaddled) and a small number of props are used to get a small gallery for you to choose your portraits. If baby goes to sleep then wonderful we can try for some poses but with older babies they may not sleep.
These are my trademark sessions where I pose baby (ideally under 3 weeks old, but can be achieved with babies up to around 8 weeks) in up to 10 poses, posed baby in 1-3 props, natural wrapped and unwrapped images without posing. Macro detail images, parent and sibling images all included. A full gallery of 30 images will be shown at your viewing session for you to choose your desired package.
Sessions are £99 to book in and this is deducted off your chosen package.
WRAPPED MINI SESSIONS
These are 60 minute sessions where baby is wrapped only with no sleepy poses, however if baby falls into a deep sleep and we have time in your session, I will try and get a pose or two from them for you but this is not guarenteed so if this is something you woukd like please only book a full newborn session.
A small gallery of up to 15 images will be shown at your viewing session for you to choose your package.
Mini sessions are £199 and include 3 digitals, extra digitals are £75 each. You may swap to a full newborn package if when you see your portraits you want more than the included.
