I had the pleasure of hosting a Mini Newborn Photo Shoot for this gorgeous baby girl, Harper. So beautiful with tiny but perfectly formed features. She was a dream to photograph too! Congratulations to her parents, they must be very proud of their baby girl.
So, what’s a Mini Newborn Photo Shoot and how does it differ to a Bespoke Photo Shoot?
A mini newborn photo shoot is an hour long session which includes 5 photos, poses as above, using neutral backdrops (cream, beige, brown or grey). The images are all about baby, no hats, hair accessories or fancy props, just baby. It is possible to swop one of the images for a parents and baby photo but, due to the 1 hour timeframe, it isn’t possible to include sibling images. These sessions are suitable for babies from 5 days to 6/8 weeks and possibly older depending on each individual baby. Your 5 images will be provided as digital downloads (high resolution jpegs) or digital images on a Crystal Portraits by Sarah USB with a 7×5″ mounted print for each image depending on which package you choose.
A bespoke newborn photo shoot is 3 to 4 hours long (usually 3 hours but I allow 4 incase baby is unsettled or particularly hungry that day!) and is completely tailored to your taste and requirements. It starts with a pre-session consultation which can take place over the phone/email or during a studio tour, your session will be styled to take into account your preferred colours, props, accessories and images, family and sibling images are included and usually take place at the beginning of the session so that everyone can relax once they are done. We work at baby’s pace and I don’t book any other sessions in on a Bespoke Newborn Session day so you have my undivided attention. You will be invited back to the studio for a private viewing session and I will be on hand to provide advice when choosing your images. In fact I will provide you with unlimited email/telephone guidance throughout the whole process, if required. There are various packages for you to choose from, each providing beautiful products to compliment your home. These sessions are suitable for babies from 5 days to 3 weeks with 5 to 14 days being the optimal time.
Which session to choose?
Well that depends on your requirements, baby’s age and budget. If baby’s age and budget allows the Bespoke Session will always be the preferable option as it is completely tailored to your requirements, taste and home colour scheme. Family and sibling images are included together with a pre-session consultation and viewing session. However, sometimes things don’t go to plan and Mum and/or Baby need to stay in hospital for a little while, perhaps budget just doesn’t allow, maybe you hadn’t even considered a newborn photo shoot until baby had already arrived or perhaps you just want a couple of simple newborn photos! In any of these circumstances the Mini Newborn Photo Shoot would be a perfect alternative to the Bespoke Newborn Photo shoot.
