The shoot is done in my own home studio based in West Lothian.
A general photoshoot will last an hour. It takes between one and two weeks for me to have the images edited and uploaded to your private gallery. After picking which images you would like I will then put them onto a disc and/or print them. I will then send them out to you via first class post.
Cake smash photoshoots are very popular for a first birthday shoot, but can be done for any reason. You will have some photos taken while they are all clean and you can change their outfit a few times if desired. Then we bring out the cake and encourage them to get as messy as they can eating and playing with the cake. We finish of the shoot with some tub photos full of bubbles and getting clean. This is great for shots as well as practical for getting your child clean for heading home. I supply the cake and all the decorations. If you want you can bring outfits. Also let me know if there are any special allergy requirements.
It is best if newborn shoots are done in the first 2 weeks after birth as this is when they are easiest to put into poses and are sleepy and calm. Although I can do newborn shoots up to 6 weeks.
I would recommend feeding your baby just before the shoot so they are happy and go to sleep for the shoot. This shoot will be done in my home studio where there will be full use of props, backdrops etc. Newborn shoots last around 3 hours so bring enough bottles, nappies etc. Also any comforts or things you would like in the photos such as a special teddy, blanket, outfit etc.
