These mini sessions are a budget friendly option for you if you would still like to get some stunning portraits of your newest arrival but can’t stretch your budget to book a bespoke session.

When should I book my newborn session?

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, we will then make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact us to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.

Where is the session held?

Your newborn session will take place in our studio in Wigginton, York.

How long will the session take?

Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting.

When will i see the images?

About 1-2 weeks after your session, we will invite you back for your viewing appointment where you will be able yo pick your favourite images and packages that suit you the most.

You can order additional products, like albums, wall art and print packs during this session. Payment can be made by credit card, debit card, or cash during your view and order appointment.

Are there any payment plans?

Should baby arrive at a time when washing machine needs replacing, or the nursery needs finishing, don’t worry.

There is no need to fear not being able to afford the images you dreamed of as we can arrange a payment plan for you.

You simply need to pay 50% of your order when you place it, and the rest within 8 weeks.
