Newborn and Baby Photography
by David Purslow
Thank you for your interest in my baby portrait photography, this page will guide you through planning for and what to expect at your session and will also give you a good guide as to costs, wall art options and other considerations based around choosing the right baby photography to create your families most precious memories.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – Leonardo da Vinci
As a guideline, newborns are best photographed in the first 14 days of life, therefore it is highly recommended reserving your sessions prior to expected due date – we can always move the photography session around your actual delivery date should your baby arrives early or late, we tailor our studio work load based around newborn sessions therefor it is advisable to pre book newborn sessions early.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision – James McNeil Whistler
While speaking of Newborn photography sessions, I should mention our maternity sessions, we have a dedicated page about this which you can find here, however Maternity sessions (baby bump photography) are best photographed between 7 and 8 months and perfectly compliment a new born session especially if your considering an album or multi aperture framed wall art piece.
Newborn sessions are only available at our studio do the the time they take, the special props, backgrounds heating, lighting and other considerations and precautions put in place to make sure you precious bundle of joy stays just that way.
If your little one is feeling under the weather or (as can happen) they just don’t feel like smiling that day despite our best efforts,then it’s not a problem, we just reschedule for another day at no extra cost.
Please feel free to contact the studio with any additional questions!
