BEFORE THE SESSION

My passion is creating a lovely gallery of images that you can choose from. I never schedule more than one session per day so that I’m able to work at your baby’s pace. You’re welcome to feed, change and hold your baby as much as you both need. I’m a mum myself, and I know how hard it is to get up and out on those earlier days, so that’s why I come to you, home session is a mix of lifestyle and posed images... Pop your feet up and relax with a cup of tea while I capture your baby’s first moments.

Or if you are like me and dread the thought of anyone coming to your home when you are welcome to come to my beautiful studio for a more posed and styled photography session, where you can take advantage of all the lovely props I have to use in your session and not to mention the amazing rustic wooden floors!  

 

If your kiddies are a little older let's head outside on an adventure! Or come to the studio for a more styled session where we can create a fabulous theme for your milestone/cake smash. 

The choice is yours.

AFTER THE SESSION

2021-04-01_0001.jpg

This where the magic happens, I will go away and edit your beautiful portraits into a fabulous collection. So basically, when I say editing what I mean is I will choose the best images to go in the final selection, trust me you won’t want to sit and view 100 images of dad blinking. I have many years of experience in choosing these images, and I’ll show you only the best of the best, I promise.

I do a small amount of retouching, i.e. small blemishes, however, babies are born natural, and this will be reflected in the final images, I love the flaky skin of a newborn so I’ll be keeping it.
When your proofs ready to be viewed, I will contact you to arrange a viewing and ordering appointment.
 
You can then select the images that you would like, and only the photos you want! 
Collections can take up to 2-3 weeks to edit, so please be patient while your images are being worked on, I’m adding a lovely Lux signature style to your pictures making them one of a kind.
Online viewing appointments are for 2 hours only. We will book a time that suits you.Collections need to be selected and paid for within these two hours.
From experience clients chose there collections in about an hour, the record time once was 10 minutes! 

You will NOT get any pushy salesman act from me. Just buy what you love, and I’ll be there to hold your hand and guide you on what looks great, and help you feel at ease!

“What a wonderful experience. We worried our newborn wouldn’t settle but Ellie was wonderful with him- there was no pressure at any point to hurry things along. She had a fantastic way with him and with us, and the studio is just perfect …"

Here you can see a behind the scene edit of an image. I edit around 25-30 images for your gallery.

Every photographer’s editing style is different, I would recommend you have had you a good look at the gallery to get a feel of what kind of images to expect from your session

Here's a little behind the scene video of a Little baby session. It was so much fun. Six months is a great time to get your baby photographed as they are of such lovely expressions and full of personality

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What to wear for the photo shoot?


It may get very warm during sessions so that babies are cosy while naked. I would suggest wearing layers in case you get too hot and where possible, choose neutral-coloured outfits with no pattern. Therefore the main focus isn’t taken away from your baby. Note: I willl send you a prep guide to help with this.




Six months plus session information


We will have a general chat either by email or phone about your colour preferences and creative needs. Please let me know at this point if you have any requests. Sessions can last up to 60 minutes. These sessions are a lot more energetic. I never want to force children to smile. I hope to photograph them naturally.
Kids will be kids and they will pull those funny faces but I say let’s embrace them and have some fun! However, if they’re really not happy, don’t panic. Little people are unpredictable, and we can re-schedule at no extra cost. Please feel free to arrange a change of outfit for everyone involved and keep outfits simple, solid colours with no logos. Children will be photographed with bare feet, so avoid tights if possible.
I’m happy to take shots with mum and dad too along with siblings, however, this may take extra time so please allow for this.




What if my baby or child doesn't cooperate and you don’t get any good pictures?


I use white noise which reminds babies of their time in the womb so this is not generally an issue and helps with settling the baby down. To relax older children I will allow them to play and ease into the session. Although rare, if your baby just doesn’t feel like sleeping or older child does not calm down, we can simply reschedule for another time at no extra cost.




How do I secure my booking?


A £99 deposit is required to secure your session date. The £99 will be deducted from any purchases made, once your final collection of portraits are ready. The session date will ONLY be secured once the deposit has been paid. Dates given can only be held for 24hrs.




If I want a session at home do I have to pay anything extra?


Sessions are available either at my studio or on location. I offer a limited amount of mobile sessions, there is an extra fee of £50 for this service. Excluding lifestyle.




Do you offer any discounts?


Please check you are happy with all pricing and packages before booking. PRICES ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE. If you have any questions, please ask. I’m here to help!
