BESPOKE NEWBORN SESSIONS

For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you

My studio specialises in creating luxurious photographic products, bespoke wall portraits and leather albums to mark the miracle of welcoming of your baby into your family and building a visual legacy for them.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEW BABY?

Newborn shoot is best done within first 12 days while baby is still very sleepy, curly, flexible and easy to settle. 

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A NEWBORN SHOOT?

I strongly recommend booking your newborn session while still pregnant. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date and pay the deposit to secure your slot. I will then pencil your due date into my calendar and once your baby arrives you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session. Due to limited availability I might not be able to accommodate last minute bookings.

WHERE WILL THE SHOOT TAKE PLACE?

I photograph babies in my home studio in Rathmolyon Co. Meath (45 mins from Dublin, 10 mins from Trim) where I create a very controlled environment allowing for a successful newborn shoot.

WHAT KIND OF PROPS DO YOU USE?

I style every session with hand made organic props and accessories. All props are carefully sourced amongst the selected industry vendors. Materials used are baby friendly, made of natural materials (silk, cotton, wool) and washed in non-bio washing powder. I like to use props in moderation and focus photographs on the natural beauty of the baby. Special requests regards styling are also welcome.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The Newborn shoot is entirely baby led and can take up to 3 hours. There's plenty of time for feeding, changing and comforting the baby. During photoshoot it is my priority to create a safe and comfortable environment to keep baby happy and content.

CAN I BRING MY OTHER CHILDREN?

Absolutely, sibling photographs are very important to capture and little children are welcome in the studio. However little toddlers can get unsettled as 3 hours in the heat might be too much for them, so it's a good idea to have these photos taken at the beginning of the session and then have someone bring them away.

ARE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS INCLUDED?

Absolutely! I like to take very natural family portraits, it's so important to get it done as it's your first portrait as a new family!
