NEWBORN SESSION FAQS
1. How old should baby be for the session?
We work with newborns 5-10 days old if at all possible. Time in NICU and early arrival babies have a bit longer window of course!
2. What if my baby is past 10 days old?
Often times, we recommend a mini newborn or relationship newborn session for babies past 15 days old. They are much more alert with longer bouts of being awake. The mini session for older babies is best for a few swaddle images or a relationship image series where they are more likely to be settled and sleepy in mom and dad’s arms.
3. When should I schedule my consultation?
Right away. This gives you a chance to go over all of the products and pricing, meet, see the studio location, and plan out the design concept for your newborn session. If at all possible, it is best to schedule weeks to months prior to your due date. However, contact us as soon as possible before baby’s birth or as soon as possible after baby has arrived.
4. Do you offer digital files?
All images ordered from us in print or album format are then available for different versions of digital files. Social media files files are included complimentary for clients from all print/album ordered images. Copyright Released images are available through various forms of Back Up Options that may be purchased at the time of your order appointment.
5. How much should I budget for Newborn Portraits?
We have clients with many different needs, wants, and budgets and therefore do not have set packages. Most clients choose to order wall portrait displays, custom albums of favorite images, a series of gifts and table top sized portraits, announcements, and their USB Back Up.
Clients often budget £650 – £2500+.
6. Do you offer payment plans?
We offer a variety of payment plan options to space out your investment to allow for clients to truly order what they most want. We also offer an online gift registry for family and friends to apply credit directly to a Newborn Client account to use towards their purchases.
7. I have other questions. What should I do?
Time to set up the complimentary consultation! Contact us so we can get you on the schedule to talk further about your session choice, design concept, along with portrait print and product options. We look forward to meeting with you soon!
