What to Expect When I’m Expecting You
Maternity and newborn photographer in Harrow London, Pinner, Ruislip, Stanmore, Barnet The diary of a newborn and baby photographer is a complicated place! Nobody told your baby that they are expected to turn up for their portrait session and while some can't wait to get here, some are fashionably late. This makes my diary a wonderfully fluid place!
When you first book your session you will be required to pay £69 to reserve your place in my diary. I take a limited number of newborn and Maternity sessions each month so that I can ensure I can fit everybody in and work with midwife and health visitor appointments once the baby is here. Once your baby arrives and you have settled back in at home just message me and I can then confirm the best date and time for your session.
Your portrait session
This will take place in your comfortable home. I want you and your baby to feel relaxed and comfortable so you are able to feed on demand and put your feet up with refreshments and a magazine I even have some new dads who take a quick nap! So that I can capture your baby perfectly while they are still so brand new, for most of the session your baby will be in their birthday suit. Newborn clothes never fit correctly so we don’t get to see all those beautiful details that say ‘hey I’m brand new! However, one of the downsides of this is your baby is guaranteed to poop and/or pee on props, blankets, perhaps even me or you! This is just par for the course, something I’m used to dealing with on a daily basis and something I allow for. All of my blankets and props are washed after each session and I have plenty of clothes and towels to hand. You might want to pop a change of clothes for yourself into your changing bag, just in case the worse happens.
Your newborn portrait session can take up to 4 hours and the reason for this is your newborn will need feeding, cuddles and cleaning throughout the session which is baby led rather than photographer led! I hope this answers the many common questions but if you would like to book or discuss a session please contact me here: https://roshniphotography.com/contact-me/
