You’ll Probably Have Lots Of Questions…
Here are the most common questions we are asked by new parents and parents to be…
# When should I book my baby photographer?
If you are booking a newborn photo shoot some of our clients like to book in early in their pregnancy and in that situation we book you in, just as soon as you are happy to do so, for a provisional date around 5 – 10 days after your due date however babies very rarely arrive on their due date so we always keep a selection of standby appointments available every week so that if the wee one arrives early or late we just move your photoshoot to one of those.
You don’t need to book in as soon as you find out you are pregnant!
If your baby is already here, or you are due soon, or if you are looking to book a photo shoot for an older baby that’s not a problem…
We always keep standby appointmentsavailable for parents who don’t want to or didn’t think to book in advance so just give us a call and we will almost always be able to get you booked in within a week or so.
# What is the best age for my baby’s photo shoot?
Please don’t get too hung up on “the best age”
Any age is good for a baby photo shoot!
For newborn photography, If you like the tiny curled up sleepy shots, we should do those in the first 2 weeks, usually between 5 – 10 days.
The 14 day recommendation, ideally between 5 & 10 days, is because this is when the wee one is most sleepy, still very flexible, and happy to be moulded into all of those cute curled up sleepy shots that everyone loves.
You may prefer your wee one to be a little older and more awake and to see their big eyes open, we will do them a little later, maybe 3-6 weeks.
We have had some babies at this 3 – 6 week stage who have curled up and slept like little newborns and we can still use most of the newborn props as well!
After around 6 weeks the best time for a baby photo shoot is about 12 – 16 weeks when they can lie on their tummy and hold their head up unsupported.
We are usually guaranteed big smiles at this stage as well.
The next stage is when they can sit up unattended, usually around 6 – 9 months. They are developing their own wee personalities now, these sessions are usually filled with laughs and giggles.
You can see lots of photos of our older babies here OLDER BABIES
# What if my baby arrives early or is late, or if I don’t feel up to it when my baby is born?
We always keep a selection of appointments free every week, babies don’t usually arrive on time so if your wee one is early, late or if you just don’t feel up to it, having just given birth, that’s no problem at all we will just move your photo shoot to one of our standby appointments and this in turn frees up a session for any last minute babies who may come along 😊
# I am a bit concerned about someone else handling my baby!
It’s all about safety first…
Your baby’s safety, wellbeing and comfort are our main concern, at all times…
Debbie has many years experience of working with and caring for very young babies, she is fully trained in every aspect of baby safety.
All of our clients comment on how amazing she is with their babies.
You can have a look at what our previous mums and dads have said about her here REVIEWS
We are very much baby led in our approach and we will NEVER put your baby in a pose, prop or situation that will compromise their safety or wellbeing.
Your wee one will never be out of your sight and will only ever be a few feet away from you 😊
# How long will it take? I’ve heard some photographers say up to 6 hours!
Our experience has shown that around 2 hours is the perfect amount of time for a Newborn photo shoot, any longer and babies get very fed up and restless (so do the parents)
This allows us plenty of opportunity to shoot lots of different images and plenty of time for feeding and changing if needed.
We only ever have 2 Newborn shoots a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, this leaves us plenty of time if the photo shoot does need to run over, that’s not very often but we will never rush you.
For older babies the session is usually around an hour.
Older babies are much more likely to interact and have fun but their attention span is not very long 👶🏻 🤣
# What if my baby cries all the time and you can’t get any photos?
Debbie’s affinity with babies is almost magical and very rarely, maybe once every 2-3 years do we have a wee one who just won’t settle.
Debbie will usually recognise early in the session if the wee one is troubled by something and isn’t likely to settle and rather than have it become an unpleasant ordeal for your baby we will stop and re book you into one of our standby sessions later that week or early the next but this really is a very rare occurrence.
# When will I see my photos after the photo shoot?
Around 7 – 10 days after your photo shoot you will either come back to the studio to view your photos, or if you prefer, we will upload all of your photos to a private online web gallery where you will be able to view them in the comfort of your own home.
The choice is yours 😊
# How much does it cost?

# Will I spend more than I have budgeted for when I see the photos? I know I’ll want them all!
You will be in complete control of how much you spend at all times!

There will neve be any pressure from us to buy more than you have budgeted for, you will be in control of what you would like to have at all times.
# What if I don’t like any of the photos?
If you don’t like the photos we take for you, you won’t spend a penny!
We will either do another shoot for you or we will refund any session fee you have paid, and it won’t have cost you a penny.
You are never under any obligation to buy anything!
We can’t guarantee you will love every single one, but In almost 30 years we have never had a photo shoot where our clients didn’t like their photos ☺️
# What if I don’t want my babies photos on your social media or website?
Not all of our clients want to have their babies photos on social media, that’s why we always ask if you want this, we offer it as a free service but only if you want it!
This goes for using your photos on our website as well, we would always ask your permission first if we wanted to use one of your babies photos.
