Answering most common Questions.
BEST TIME TO BOOK | Maternity sessions usually take place between 30-36 weeks so best to book a few months in advance.
For your newborn photo session, it is best to book when you are still pregnant. For best availability book in after your 20 week scan. We can then schedule a time around your due date or planned c-section that can easily be moved dependent on your baby’s arrival.
We are limited to the number of sessions that take place so as soon as you decide you would like us to capture your unique newborn portraits for you then please contact us and we will get you scheduled in the diary. The date will be a ‘floating’ date and we can confirm the session date once baby arrives.
BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEWBORN | Babies are best photographed under 10 days old (preferably 7 days). This may be changed if your baby is early/premature.
WHAT IS FLOATING DATE? | most of the time I book newborn photo session based on your baby’s due date. Say your baby is due on the 1st June, I would pencil your newborn photoshoot on the 10th of June and if your baby arrives earlier or later we will move your date accordingly to make sure we capture your baby within the first 16-12 days of life.
However, should you or your baby needs to say at the hospital for longer for what ever reason, we would delay the baby photoshoot until both mum and the baby are fit enough to proceed with the newborn photo session.
WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE | Most sessions will take place in our professional studio in Wimbledon, which is within an easy reach by public transport by (Northers Line to South Wimbledon, District Line and railway to Wimbledon Station). Studio Address is Kingswood Road, SW19 3ND.
WHAT AREAS TO YOU COVER? | Most of my newborn photo sessions take place at my studio in Wimbledon. However, I do offer home visits too for additional £100 to cover travel time and expenses, extra set up time too. I cover areas such as Raynes Park, Southfields, Putney, Fulham, Richmond, Kingston, Clapham, Kew Gardens, Chelsea and other parts of South West London.
Live outside of the area? Get in touch, I am sure we will find a solution to cover your newborn photography vision.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE | We allow 4 hours. We will provide plenty of refreshments to keep you going. There will be plenty of time for you to relax while we capture beautiful photographs.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE | When you reserve your photo session date by paying your deposit we will send you all the information you need on how to get the best out of your session.
DO I NEED TO BRING PROPS AND BLANKETS | We supply a number of blankets and props to choose from dependent on your preference. You are welcome to choose to bring along a little soft toy or any other item which is special to your newborn baby.
WHEN DO I SEE THE PHOTOGRAPHS |After your newborn photo session, we will arrange a viewing appointment usually within 3 weeks after the studio session.
WILL YOU RETOUCH ALL THE PHOTOS? | YES, you will only see the best work, the best most flattering poses, retouched skin and makeup, all photos come with colour correction done in Lightroom and skin and background correction done in Photoshop. I thrive for you to love your photos from the first sight. This goes for both newborn photoshoot and for your pregnancy photoshoot too.
CAN I HAVE ALL THE RAW/ UNEDITED FILES | Unedited files are not true representation of my work, raw files are very different from what your final product will look like. Besides, Raw files are CR2 files, you would have to spend several hundreds of pounds on opening a single file. Rest assured, that when you buy my all inclusive packages of your newborn photo session, you will receive every photo or every pose we do, that has the best facial expression, angle and sharpest focus.
WHAT SHALL I WEAR FOR A NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION? | In preparation of your newborn photo session, I will send you a comprehensive guide on how to prepare your baby for the newborn photo session, what shall the dad wear and also to a link with all the gowns that I offer as part of my studio photo session experience.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH PARENTS WITH NEW BABIES | Yes, we encourage it, but it is not compulsory. We can discuss the different options with you after you have paid your deposit.
WHAT IF MY BABY DOESN’T SLEEP | Don’t worry! We are very patient – all babies will eventually sleep. We are newborn specialists and expert at baby photoshoots, so please do not worry.
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU SELL | We have a range of product including, memory boxes, albums, wall art, canvases and framed canvases. You can also buy gift prints and printable digital images with copyright included. Prices start from £345. During your studio session you will be able to see examples of the different options available. You will also get a product price list to take away and look through before your viewing.
HOW MUCH ARE THE PRODUCTS

I have combined all of my packages with beautiful Art Prints, Wall Arts, Folio Boxes or Albums. All inclusive packages investment – price range of your investment is between £499 to £799.
