I would be absolutely honoured if you choose me as your newborn photographer and thrilled to be able to capture the first days of your sweet little one! Newborn sessions are held in my studio and are typically 2 - 4 hrs long to ensure that there is plenty of time for feeding, soothing and changing your baby. I only book one client per day so your session is not rushed and baby has all the feeds and cuddles he/she needs.
WHEN TO BOOK
The best time to book your session is just after your 12 week scan or a little bit later if you wish. Once you've booked I will pencil your due date in my diary. Please do not worry about your baby being early or late as I will reserve some time before and after your due date to ensure plenty of availability for you. Newborn sessions are best within the first 14 days of baby’s life therefore its SUPER important that you contact me within 48 hours after baby's birth so I make myself available for you.
If you missed on booking early please still contact me as soon as since due to some babies being late or early I might have last minute availability. Although it is not my usual preference I could still take babies up to 12 weeks old to make sure that you do not miss on your memories. However, you should be open minded about more wrapped, awake and less posed shots in case your little one does not like to sleep a lot due to their older age.
PRICE & PACKAGES
There are 4 packages starting as low as £199. Please check the latest price list HERE
A Day in Your Life with New Baby "fresh 48" lifestyle session are also available upon enquiry - please contact to discuss as these are very limited.
*Please note that all of the above sessions are posed newborn sessions except for the "fresh 48". If you are after a relaxed unposed lifestyle newborn session in your home environment you shall book a "fresh 48" or a family session rather than any other package of the posed newborn photography.
HOW TO BOOK
Please check the availability and BOOK ONLINE or CONTACT me with your due date if you have any questions. The session date is secured only when the booking fee of £150 is received (please note that the date is not reserved until the booking fee is paid and might be given to anyone else who enquired before or after you but paid first). When booking your newborn photography session please put your due date as your estimated session date which will be adjusted once the baby arrives.
STYLE & WORKFLOW
Closer to the shoot date you will receive a short form and a prep guide for your session and we will discuss your colour choice and image preferences. Please look through my work on my website so you can see if my style matches what you are after for your session. I only shoot to my own styling and keep it to my own workflow to ensure the session is smooth and that the baby is safe and happy. If you wish anything else to be included in your session this is best discussed in advance so I can let you know if/how we could introduce it in your session.
SAFETY & EXPERIENCE
Safe newborn photography practice is a number one priority! Please choose your photographer carefully - Dream Artsy is an insured photographer trained to work with newborns and babies, also training other photographers newborn posing and photography and is a registered member of BANPAS, GUILD and SWPP.
If you have a newborn baby and are considering a newborn shoot with the sibling the best age for siblings is from 3 years up as before then they hardly understand what you are trying to achieve from them and do not always perform. We will of course offer treats and other bribes but as this is a newborn session we unfortunately will not be able to concentrate on a toddler instead of a newborn. I also need to insure that the newborn is safe and comfortable and that the session is kept at its normal workflow. Please bare this in mind when booking and do not expect your younger little one to perform their best to avoid disappointment.
OTHER SESSIONS / IMAGES
Please note that you will need to choose a different package as an extra if you want combine a solo Baby Milestones,
Family, Sibling, Cake smash, Baby bath, Maternity or any other images that are not newborn related.
