COTSWOLD BABY PHOTOGRAPHER
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO START?
I tend to start the day at 10.30 and begin in the studio where we do the studio photos before heading out to do the outdoor ones. Newborn sessions we tend to stay indoors most of the year and family ones we spend just a couple of hours in the studio before heading outdoors.
WHAT IF IT IS RAINING?
Then we can stay indoors and do the studio photos and arrange a dryer day to do the outdoor ones.
WHAT CLOTHING SHOULD WE BRING?
With regards to what it is best to wear I would suggest as a rule avoid bright patterned clothing, logos and characters. This can distract attention away from your baby or child. I would suggest picking three colours then sticking to them. Off whites and ivories work better then bright white. Try to avoid black also. Think of the time of year. In the Autumn reds, mustard yellows burnt oranges and browns spring soft pastels pale pinks and yellows could be an idea. Look online see what you like get some ideas and send me them. We can try to re create them hopefully do even better. Think of where you would like to put your photos which room and try to coordinate.
WHAT IF MY NEWBORN DOES NOT SLEEP?
They always do in the end. I am never in a rush so we just wait and eventually they will. This is why I allow for the day. I have had newborns that haven't slept for two hours before. Most tend to between an hour or two of arrival. Quite often it is because they have slept in the car on the way here.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE MY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHED?
Any where between 7 and 21 days. You can make a provisional booking for 10 to 21 days after your due date. Once your baby arrives and you have settled back in at home just [give me a call/email me/message me] and we can then confirm the best date and time for your session.
WHAT IF MY TODDLER PLAYS UP?
They always do at some point. I have one. Eventually they will be ok again. I allow for the whole day so we may take a break and go back to it. Bribery with chocolate buttons always seem to be a good one. Then once we are outdoors they have a lot more freedom to play.
I HAVE SOME IDEAS CAN WE TRY THEM?
Fantastic! If you have seen any photos you like or posing ideas please send them me before and we can try and recreate them. I always have a folder in my phone of posing ideas to try and help you on the day.
HOW DO I PAY?
Please pay at the end if your session then I can get in editing your photos and to you as quick as possible. You will have your photos ready to view at the viewing session a week later or if you just want the usb then they will be finished and with you in a week.
CAN YOU TRAVEL TO US?
I can do but it is much easier if you come to me. I have everything I need here I know the light and there is a park round the corner where perhaps the father or a friend can take any older siblings whilst we take the newborn photos. It is my home it is relaxed and comfortable.
CAN I BUY A GIFT CERTIFICATE?
Absolutely please contact me an I can send one out to you.
