Newborn Photo Sessions
Newborn at-home sessions
Newborn sessions often place within the first few weeks whilst the baby is still fairly sleepy however around 4-8 weeks is also wonderful as they are more alert.
I allow around 90 minutes to 2 hours for newborn sessions which allows time for feeding, changing, sleep or awake time. Being flexible ensures the baby is as happy as possible throughout the session.
I take natural photos with or without parents involved and then baby alone. You may choose outfits for your baby’s session and it is lovely to also have a plain white vest available. Sometime we are able to gradually reduce the layers to nappies and wraps if the baby allows us. I take a mixture of natural and some more posed photographs depending on the individual clients requests.
Since 2019 I am collaborating with Kit & Kin and therefore have ‘animal’ nappies available during sessions

“JUST WHAT WE WANTED.
WE CAN’T RATE VICKI HIGHLY ENOUGH.
So professional and created a really calm environment. My baby slept the whole way through as he was so content. She took so many stunning shots and gave us memories we can treasure forever. Being in our own home meant it was super relaxed and natural.”

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT A PHOTO SESSION YOU MAY FIND THE ANSWERS BELOW.
If these FAQs have not answered your question please send me an email to chat more.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A FAMILY SESSION?
Family sessions can take place any time of year. These can take place in your home or outdoors. The weather is not always on our side in the UK so rescheduling due to rain is quite common! If you are booking in order to have gift items please allow 2 weeks for your gallery and a further 2 weeks for product orders ahead of your occasion.
When you book your session we will discuss location, timing and styling as well as your children's interests so I have some conversation starters if they feel shy.
CAN I PRINT THE PHOTOS MYSELF?
Each package includes a specified number of digital downloads which will be activated via your online gallery. You will be able to have these digitals to print at any retailer although quality will be best via my print labs. Photographs which are in your gallery and NOT sent as digitals must not be screenshot or saved on any device.
CAN I BUY A FRAMED PHOTO?
After your session you will recieve your online gallery with a store of products should you wish to purchase prints, frames, books and gifts.
WHAT IF MY CHILD DOES NOT RESPOND WELL?
Parents often tell me they are worried about how their child will behave. Please do not worry as your child may pick up on your stress. As a highly qualified teacher I have a few tricks up my sleeve and will often speak to your child before I speak to you when we first meet! Please don't worry about bribing toddlers and pre schoolers, we can save that for later as a last strategy! My top tip is to give them a good snack first before the session.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL BE IN THE GALLERY?
Galleries usually contain 20 or more images depending on the pacakage and session type. Before your session we will discuss whether you have a preference regarding colour and black and white images.
