Newborns

“And suddenly, you were my everything”

Thank you so much for considering Victoria J Photography, baby photographer Shrewsbury, for your newborn photoshoot.

The first few weeks after having a baby fly by in a blur of sleepless nights and constant feeding, or at least they did for me! Let me capture your baby’s first moments with beautiful, timeless portraits and provide you with memories that will last for generations.

I want your newborn session to be as easy and relaxing as possible for you. My home studio is cosy and warm and your little one will be in safe hands allowing you to sit back and relax whilst I capture some beautiful images for you, your baby and your family.

Your newborn photoshoot will take place at my home studio in Bayston Hill and sessions work best for babies between 5-14 days old.

1-2 weeks after your session I will invite you back to the studio to view your gallery slideshow of approximately 25 beautifully edited images. It is then that you decide which package and images you would like, and choose any wall art or products.

“Vicki was so lovely with our little boy! Kept him so calm and didn’t rush at all.

Her home studio is gorgeous and was lovely and warm for the baby.
Vicki listened to exactly the style of photos we wanted and created the vision perfectly! We can’t wait to use her again as our little man grows.”

FAQs
When is the best time to book?
As babies are rather unpredictable with their birth dates, I book a very limited number of newborn sessions per month. For this reason I recommend booking whilst you are pregnant (as early as your 20 week scan) to secure your session.

You’ll be booked in for your due date. Then, when your little one arrives, we will arrange a date and time for your session that is convenient for you.

Can we include siblings in the photoshoot?
Of course, sibling images are some of my favourite to capture. I usually include these at the beginning of the session.
Can we have a family photo?
Definitely! I always recommend having at least one family image from the session.
How long is the shoot going to take?
Newborn photoshoots usually take between 2-4 hours. This includes feeding, settling and changing time.

Multiples or particularly unsettled babies can result in a longer session time. For this reason, I only book one newborn session per day. I recommend you keep your day free and don’t book anything directly before or after the session, in case we run over.

Newborn sessions are very much baby led and can not be rushed. Patience is key to a good newborn session.

Do we have to buy a package?

No, you are not under any obligation to purchase your images and there is never a ‘hard sell’. Package choices are made at the viewing session, if you decide not to purchase anything then the deposit is returned to you.

If you decide that you would rather spend on wall art than a digital and print package, the minimum spend is £229.

We have just had our baby but haven't booked, can we still get newborn images?
I occasionally have spaces that become available during the month, due to babies arriving early/late. If you’re little one has already arrived but you haven’t booked a session in advance, please do get in contact and I will do my absolute best to fit you in!

I recommend photographing newborns in the first 2 weeks if possible but will photograph them up to 4/5 weeks old if necessary.

What happens if my baby won't sleep?
Of course, we want to capture those sleepy, squishy poses for you, but awake shots can also be really beautiful. If your little one is awake but settled, we will get some awake shots first.

If your little one isn’t sleeping but is also not settled, we may try feeding and then wrapping. It is very rare that a baby won’t fall asleep, even if we have to spend a little time helping them fall off to sleep. We’ll get some beautiful wrapped images, then when they have settled we will unwrap them for the naked posed shots.

What happens at the viewing session?
1-2 weeks after your photoshoot, you will be invited back to the studio to view your gallery of approx. 25 beautifully edited images. It is then that you will decide which package you would like, choose your images (if necessary) and discuss and choose any wall art that you would like for your home.

Once you have decided on your images, your prints and wall art will be ordered. Prints are usually ready within 7-10 days, wall art between 2-3 weeks.

How long do we have to use the wall art credit?
3 months from when you recieve your prints and digitals.
Do you provide gift vouchers?

I will provide gift vouchers for full sessions, so for a newborn session the minimum gift amount is £229 which would include the ‘tiny toes’ package. The recipient would then have the choice to upgrade at their viewing session.

 

You can purchase gift vouchers here.
