NEW BORN STANDARD PACKAGE
CURRENT Price includes:
Up to 3 hour studio time (average shoot takes approx 2.5 hours)
a minimum of 10 high res digital images uploaded to an online gallery (colour and a selection in black and white)
props/blankets etc (we aim for three set ups )
fresh flowers for the basket (if requested)
1 8x12 Giclee print which I will post to your home
Flower arrangementS for the basket
I do offer a floral arrangement for the baskets which I style myself. For the more elaborate baskets or if you require specific flowers there may be an added cost and I may also need to book a professional florist to style the basket for you.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEW BORN SESSION?
I highly recommend that you book your new born session within two weeks from birth (ideally around 10 days) primarily because that's when babies sleep the most making them easier to pose.
I allocate 2.5/3 hours per session and the whole shoot is tailored to work around your baby's needs (feeds, nappy changes etc). It can take a while for babies to re-settle after being undressed.
CAN I INCLUDE SIBLINGS?
I do understand that you might like to include older siblings which can be possible but adding toddlers in to a shoot on the day can be tricky. I will discuss with you before hand how best to achieve these photos. Sometimes it is best to return on a different day with the toddler and baby.
These shoots require time, A LOT of patience, tea/coffee ( all of these I supply in abundance).
A NON-refundable deposit of £75 is to be made at the time of booking and the balance is due on the day of the shoot.

Why book a maternity shoot?
Gemma said this:
”I've never been at ease with having my photo taken and pregnancy has made me feel increasingly self conscious. The constant open comments on my changing body from others has left me feeling very vulnerable at times and I have often focused on the negative changes rather than the positives. From the moment I walked into Kelly's studio she made me feel at ease. She has such a natural way of calming and relaxing the people she is working with that you forget she's behind the lens. The pictures she has taken capture all the aspects of me that I love but also makes me like the parts of me that I have been uneasy with. I know I'm going to look at these photos for years and they will remind me of this amazing, beautiful, challenging time”.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A MATERNITY SHOOT?
I highly recommended that you book your maternity shoot in your last trimester (around 32/34 weeks).
