Congratulations! You are expecting a baby! Whether it’s your first or third you are filled with many emotions…you are nervous, anxious, giddy but most of all you feel excited and happy for your baby arrival. You just cannot stop thinking about those tiny feet and fingers, little button nose and those first looks your baby gives you once it’s born. My heart just melts!
There is no better way to capture your family story by photographing baby’s first beginning into this world. Pregnancy although sometimes can be tiring shows amazingly how our bodies change and prepare to give life to a new baby. Being able to capture your bump and celebrate new life is just wonderful. It’s also a perfect way to capture those precious first moments of your little one journey into this world and watch them grow from tiny baby held into your arms to a cheeky toddler running around and wanting you to chase him/her.
A summary of each of the multi-session packages I offer is outlined below:
In my bump & newborn package I offer two sessions which are held on location and your home environment. It’s such a special time being pregnant and the 9 months do fly by, so I am happy I can have an opportunity to photograph your bump. We want to show a nice big bump so maternity photo session usually taking place in the third trimester of your pregnancy (over 30 weeks). If you already have other children I am of course happy to include them in your session. I just love how toddlers can kiss your bump and listen to your baby kicks!
After the ‘bump’ shoot we then arrange a session after your baby is born to photograph the new addition to your family. The session will usually take place within two weeks of your baby arrival and be at your home where you feel most comfortable and where you can enjoy those first cuddles and kisses with your newborn baby.
The bump, newborn & family multi-session package includes, as described above, two first sessions (bump & newborn) and also one family photography session. This is your choice when you would like this session to take place, however ideally within the first year of your baby being born. We can celebrate for example 6 months by having a wonderful session outdoors or even wait till your little one is one year old and capture family fun at home or in the park or woodlands.
This package is a great and easy way to secure all your important moments with your new baby in their first year. Once you are booked you don’t have to worry about finding a photographer once your baby is born. I know the first few days can be lost in the fog of your ‘babymoon’ so knowing that your sessions are secure leave you with nothing but enjoyment of your baby. Just message me when your baby is born and we will arrange a session and then discuss our third family session in the future.
The Milestones multi-session package is one of my favourite ones! I will not only have the opportunity to see your wonderful family four times but to ensure your new family story is frozen in time by presenting your life in one set of images from each of your photo sessions.
It’s so incredible how the time flies once you have children. The first years in particular fly by in the blink of the eye, so being able to capture those special milestones and documenting them to cherish forever is really special. The Milestones packages includes a maternity shoot, a newborn shoot and two extra family sessions within the first year of baby’s birth.
It’s entirely up to you when you would like those sessions to take place. For example, we can arrange a 6 month and a first year session at a chosen location or in your family home. Older siblings of course are welcome as part of the session as well. As we are documenting your family life, I also include a family slideshow which will include selected images from all of your four sessions! It’s a WOW factor and I can ensure you will need tissues in hand! It’s my way to say thank you for you trusting me to document that first special year of your little one’s life, which is a true honour.
