Newborn Sessions

This photo-shoot is best suited for babies between 5 days and 3 weeks old. If your baby is older please contact me to see your available options. 

 

Thank you so much for your interest in a Samantha Paige newborn session. 

I cannot wait to capture some beautifully natural, genuine & eye-catching images of your baby. I don't want to just capture the typical newborn poses - I want to capture your families story.
Whether through a hobby you hope to pass down to your newborn, or an object of great importance to you - these are your images to love and look back on, I want them to be perfect and unique to you. 

 

After your session and once your beautiful images are ready, you are either welcome back to my studio to view your images. Or I can create for you an online gallery to view your images.*

 

At this point you’re welcome to select the images you’d like as part of your package, purchase any additional images and decide if you would like to purchase any wall art or albums. 

 

I have 4 packages for my newborn sessions. Every session comes with included images / digital files. At no point are you obliged to purchase additional images outside of your package. Every session comes with a 20% booking deposit to secure your date. Any cancellation without rebook will forfeit the deposit. 

 

 

For more details on each of my package’s please have a look below. Any questions please drop me a message. 

From tiny toes to a dreamlike pose, capturing both creative and natural images for you to treasure and display forever.

FAQ's For My Newborn Session

Are Family Included in the Photos?

I always offer immediate family to be included in some of the photos during your session.
Lots of parents will refuse and thats ok! I would not want anyone to feel pressured to have family portraits during the session & I leave it up to you on the day and see how you are feeling.
Worried about your appearance on the day? It's natural, you've not long given birth - your tired and possibly still uncomfortable. For times like these I offer a silhouette shot.
Even if you're not feeling your best this is a beautiful imitate shot that focuses on the love and connection between you and you're new baby - without having too much of parental details in shot. 
Please note that extended family are not included but can be booked via a separate session. 

What happens if my baby won't settle/sleep?

This is a very common worry amongst all of my newborn parents. 
Firstly there is no rush during our session. I only book one newborn session a day
and allow up to 4 hours to ensure that you feel no pressure. It is inevitable that we will have to stop for feeds, bum changing or maybe just a mummy cuddle. I know that every newborn session is different and if baby really wont sleep we will make it work best we can - capturing those beautiful eyes awake or the odd smile. But if there really is a struggle, I can always invite you back another time to retry.
In all my years of working with newborns I have never had to invite someone back - patience and understanding are key.

Do you offer newborn session's on the weekend?

The answer to this is no. 
With newborn sessions I give you a 'floating' date based on your due date. If your little one is early or late I'm happy to adjust your date to suit. I leave additional weekdays free to accommodate for this as weekends tend to be booked with other shoot styles.

This is why it is also helpful to book your session during your maternity/paternity leave if you would like family shots. But not to worry, if your partner cannot make the session and you're wanting a family portrait I can always invite you back when they're able to join. 

I have other older Children that attend School - but I want them in the session!

When siblings shots are wanted I always shoot these first.
That way your older children can be done and therefore leave the studio as it can be boring for little ones to sit around. I always aim to be done with these shots within 45 minutes of starting, this way siblings are more cooperative and less likely to be bored or distracted. 
If they're unable to be out of school - I understand that some children are unable to get time from school - not to worry, if you are unable to bring them along I can always invite you back after school hours to get sibling shots.

Do we have to bring anything for our photos?

For my full newborn sessions all my props, backdrops, outfits and headwear is provided.  These are hand selected and decided by you in a pre-session consultation. During the consultation I work with you to create a theme/style for the session so the final images are what you're dreaming of. 
Of course if you have something personal or an idea you'd love to include please et me know and I'd happily make it part of the images. 

Please note for my wrapped mini sessions only the pre-set up backdrop/set/prop is used.
