Why Book Me?
Often I wonder what the questions would be from a pregnant mother to be. Should I book a newborn shoot? What if my baby doesn't arrive on time? I can imagine there are many questions that go through your mind. Especially for first time mums. I think if it was me, I would likely be thinking... Would this lady be safe with my brand new baby?
Just to reassure you, I am fully trained in Newborn Photography. Also I am a mother of 6 beautiful children. I have changed more nappies than what I can even remember. I have seen it all. Different birth story's and not even to mention sleep deprivation. Have bottle fed, I have breast fed and I have been taking photographs of my babies since the second they were born. I don't think I can reassure you any more than that.
"We had an amazing newborn photoshoot! We are so happy with the wonderful photos Hannah has captured! Hannah is such a lovely lady, so welcoming, patient and friendly. I wouldn't trust anyone more with my precious newborn baby, she is so calm, gentle and was also great with our 3 year old too. She creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is a perfectionist. Striving to get the very best images for you. Her studio is spotlessly clean and a lovely warm temperature- Perfect for babies. She is so talented at what she does, we will definitely be back again! Highly recommend! Thank you Hannah!"
What if my baby doesn't arrive on time?
When you book in with me. I pencil in your due date. This secures your newborn experience. Once your baby arrives we will set a date that suits you well within a 21 day period from when your baby arrives. This gives you time to settle in back at home and gives you reassurance that you aren't in any rush. If you are breast feeding this gives you time to establish you're feeding patterns too. I don't book too many newborn sessions in so i will always accommodate you.
What if my baby has to go into special care?
If for any reason you are unable to bring your newborn to me within the first days of life. I would happily move your newborn session to another time within the first 12 months of your babies life to capture their first professional photographs for you. In special circumstances I would happily refund your studio experience booking fee.
What if I don't like any of my photographs?
I can honestly say. I have never had this happen to me yet. If this was the case then you really wouldn't have to buy anything and a full refund would be given back to you.
What if my baby doesn't settle during the shoot?
I always have a plan B. If your baby doesn't settle after all of my comforting, swaddling, white noise, cuddles, food, a change etc. Then I would happily end the shoot and we can try again another day. There is never any pressure with me. Your baby is my number one priority and anything I do will always be based on what your baby will allow me to do.I have a 3x try theory with each pose. If your baby isn't comfortable or unhappy I will stop straight away. You are never rushed out of my studio. If we are running over time, then that is absolutely fine with me. It will take however long it will take.
Such a lovely enjoyable experience and session ❤️
Hannah was amazing with Jacob and made us feel welcome and relaxed.
Highly recommend. A perfectionist in her work and you can tell it’s what she loves to do. There was no time pressure and session was based around Jacob and how he was reacting ?
Can’t wait to see our pictures printed
Thank you again. X
How much is it to book in?

Another photographer I absolutely adore is Nicole Whyte. She is a Falkirk Child Photographer.
This week Nicole is blogging about why bribery is ok during a child's photo session. I mean as a mother of 6. Im pretty sure I have used bribery many of times.
