FAQ’s Family & In-Home Newborn Sessions


Below are my most common questions and answers for Lifestyle Sessions. Can’t find the answer you are looking for? Contact me! I’m happy to answer all your questions.

When is the best time to book a newborn session?

Upon booking, I put your due date in my calendar & then stay in touch with you leading up to your arrival, once the baby arrives I work with you to book a date in around you.

What about family shoots?

Family shoots can be done on location and I will work with you to find a great spot that suits your family.


What happens if we have an outdoor session and the weather doesn’t look good?

I always keep an eye on the weather leading up to your date, I will stay in touch with you a few days prior to your date. Should the weather not be suitable for our outdoor session, we can reschedule for the next available date.

Do you offer payment plans?

I certainly do, I require a 20% deposit to secure your date and can send you information on payment options should you wish to go ahead.

What is the best age to book a newborn session?

To be honest, there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ time to do these. Personally i love to do it anywhere between 3-8 weeks.  At this age, we are able to get some gorgeous sleeping shots but also some gorgeous shots with their eyes open & interacting with you guys. Plus this also allows you to be in a bit more of a routine. 

How long does it take to receive my photos?

You will receive your final edited images within 2-3 weeks of your shoot.

Where are the photos taken?

Generally in the comfort of your own home ! For newborn shoots the last thing I wanted to do after having my babies was packing everything up & leaving the house. By being in your own environment you get beautiful natural shots & this also allows you to feed, settle and change the baby at your pace. If you do prefer a location shoot I can also work with you to find a great spot!

What should we wear?

Something that you are comfortable in! All I say is it is a good idea to avoid anything with too many clashing patterns if possible. Also clothes without obvious logos also helps as they tend to date photos. Simple is always good.

Do you offer gift vouchers?

Yes, I can offer Gift Vouchers for any occasion!, just get in touch and I can send the voucher either directly to you or to the recipient whatever suits you!

How long do your sessions take?

I do not put a time limit on your shoots as I don’t want to rush you, I want you to feel relaxed and enjoy it, this will help us to achieve the best results for you and your family.

Do you offer printing?

Absolutely!! I do all my printing locally and can not speak highly enough of the quality of the prints !. I include a print price list with every USB so should you wish to print any of your photos, just get in touch and this can be arranged !. I always recommend this option especially for prints you would like to hang on your wall. Obviously there are a lot of places out there that offer printing but to me the prints you hang on your wall are so important and by getting them printed on good quality product makes the world of difference.
