FAQ

WHEN DO I MAKE THE BOOKING?
The best time is during your pregnancy, however, if you have had your baby please just give me a call and I will try my best to fit you in.

WHO HANDLES MY BABY?
Mikael & I are, a husband and wife team, Mikael will be taking the photos and I will be handling and posing your baby during the entire session, as well as cuddling and soothing your baby to make sure they are happy. At those moments when only you can help, I hand your baby to you and if at any point during the session you need to cuddle your baby then you will just let me know.

HOW OLD IS A NEW-BORN?
The best age for a new-born session is between 5 and 14 days. This is because muscle tone is still weak and tiny babies tend to sleep very deeply. That is not to say that a baby older than this cannot be posed as every baby is different.

IS NEW-BORN PHOTOGRAPHY SAFE?
Yes. Your baby’s health and safety is my number one priority so I will not do anything that causes your baby distress. There are some poses that we may try but if your baby isn’t comfortable doing those I will stop immediately. Some poses will require a helping hand from you.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY WILL NOT SLEEP?
Do not worry, this can happen, which is why I always schedule sufficient time into every session to allow for it. We will spend as long as it takes to get your baby settled before any photography begins. I also allow for a couple of feeds and cuddle breaks during the session if needed.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY HAS AN ACCIDENT ON YOU?
No problem, this happens all the time. If it doesn’t it is a miracle! All my blankets and props are washed with non-biological detergent after every session. You are also free to provide your own.

CAN WE REQUEST SPECIFIC PHOTOGRAPHS WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE TAKEN?
Yes. You can let me know about any specific shots you would like and I will be happy to try to take them. However, not all babies are capable of some of the poses that you may have seen, so please be prepared to wait and see how things go on the day.

WHAT SHOULD MY BABY WEAR FOR THE SESSION?
New-borns usually do not wear anything. We have lots of accessories and props for you to choose from. You can also provide your own favorite blanket, teddy bear or cute hats.

WHEN WILL WE GET OUR IMAGES?
After your photo session we will arrange a viewing date within a week for you to return and view your images.  I usually post one or two on my blog and FB within a couple of days to give you a Sneak Peek.

DO I HAVE TO BUY THE PHOTOS?
No, you are under no obligation to buy anything. I am sure you will want to though, when you see how beautiful your baby’s photos come out. A full product pricelist is available.

HOW LONG WILL YOU KEEP A COPY OF MY SESSION IMAGES ON FILE?
I keep all images for a minimum of six months. All purchased images are stored for a minimum of one year.

 

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION?
We will discuss the product options after your baby’s photo session were you can see all our products in our studio. I will also give you our full collection and offer prices to take home so you will have a chance to look through with your partner and family before you return for your viewing.

 

MY BABY IS SICK, CAN I REARRANGE OUR SESSION TIME?
Yes, we do not want to cause stress by trying to take photos when your baby is feeling sick and we would not get the best shots anyway, so it is best to reschedule.

 

ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, I have public liability insurance.

 

DO YOU SCHEDULE PHOTO SESSIONS AT WEEKENDS?
Yes, I do.

 

CAN I GIVE THE PHOTO SESSION AS A GIFT TO MY DAUGHTER?
Yes. We offer different price photo session gift vouchers.

 

WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept payments by cash, credit card, bank transfer/deposit, PayPal and cheques.

 

WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO OUR IMAGES?
