When should I book my newborn session?
You can book your newborn session as soon as you know your due date.
We’ll put your due date to our calendar and when baby is born we can precisely schedule your photo session.
How old should be my baby for a newborn session?
A newborn photography session will be ideally take place when your baby is between 5 and 14 days of age.
How to prepare for newborn photo session?
First of all, be prepared for at least 3 hours spent in our studio.
If you are breastfeeding mum: please avoid any spicy foods or citruses (even drinks) two days before session. It can upset your baby’s tummy and it would make photo session very difficult. If you are bottle feeding please bring extra formula or two with you. Please bring also few nappies and a pacifier if you baby is using it.
Please feed your baby as much as it’s possible and feed her/him about two hours before arriving, so you will feed her just before session. Please keep your baby awake 2 hours before we start our session. All we need is happy, sleepy baby with a full tummy.
Baby needs to be dressed in comfortable, loose clothing that could be quickly removed or put on again. Anything tight that would cause marks on skin. Our studio will be a very warm, that’s the best way to keep your baby comfortable.
Can I reschedule my session?
No problem, we understand that things happen, but please provide as much notice as possible.
Please let me know beforehand if you would like parent photos factored in to the session and we can discuss your options.
Can I bring my own props?
We have variety of backdrops and props that can be used, but if you have any special blanket or outfit for your baby, please feel free to take it with you.
Do you photograph me with or any other family member with the baby?
Yes, of course. If you want to be photographed with your baby please wear black, long sleeved shirts. That makes a perfect contrast to the baby’s skin and looks great on black and white portraits. If you want us to make pictures of a baby with siblings or grandparents, please wear plain white tops.
What happens if my baby will not settle or sleep?
Most babies will cry at some stage during a session, that’s nothing unusual. We will do whatever possible to calm your baby and make great photographs. In the case of a distressed or upset baby we may need to reschedule our session.
I saw a particular pose I’d like you do with my baby, is that possible?
We will do our best, but we always put babies safety first and won’t force a baby into a pose that he/she won’t like. Your baby’s safety is the final word here.
Are there any restrictions on the digital files after I purchase them?
You can use them for personal use only: to create prints, canvas etc.
Clients are prohibited from selling, altering or publishing images for any purposes other than for personal use. You may publish any picture from the session on social media, but only with our logo on it or with a direct link to our site www.babyrepublic.photo
