When should I book my maternity & newborn session?

 

Be sure to book your maternity and newborn sessions as far in advance as possible, for maternity it is best to book your session for when you are around 28-32 weeks, you can show off your fabulous bump and pregnancy glow before you start to become too uncomfortable. Newborn's should be photographed around 4-10 days old and should be booked at least 4 weeks before your due date so all you have to do when baby arrives is to drop Clare an email or message so that plan's can be made for a specific date suitable to hold the shoot, a rough date is scheduled for the week of your due date prior to make sure Clare is free to document those magical first few day's of life

 

Where do the sessions take place?

 

Maternity sessions are preferably done on location outdoors as well as family and children sessions, Clare finds she can generally get better images when she has natural backgrounds and open spaces rather than the cluttered confined spaces indoors. All newborn sessions are generally done at the parent's home

 

How long will my photo session last?

 

All sessions are generally between 1-2hrs in some cases more if needed! newborn sessions take a little longer, usually between 2-3hrs to allow time to get unsettled babies sleepy and for feeding in between

When is my session paid for?

 

Session fee is due upon booking to secure your booking and date, this is non refundable but can be transferred due to weather or illness, no booking is definite until payment is made

Why do I have to pay upfront?

 

Basically it is to be sure you are 100% committed to going ahead with the shoot. from experience in the past there have been a few incidents were people have booked a shoot with no payment made and cancelled at the last minute, therefore photographer has given up a day for a scheduled session, with no payment and no one to photograph 

 

What am I paying for?

Travel to locations (within reason) ,time and talent! Clare puts lots of time and passion into each shoot, during the session and after, high quality USB of images for yourself to keep

 

What happen's after the session?

 

The aim is to have a blog post of your session up on the website within 7 day's of your shoot for you and your family to view. Within 3 weeks you should receive a lovely little package in the post containing a USB pen drive of all your ready to print, high quality images!
