Newborn Photography Sessions in Gloucester

It’s so true what they say about time flying when you have a baby. Your precious sleepy newborn will become an alert, moving mini-you in no time at all! Newborn photography is the perfect way to cherish the memories of those first few weeks in your baby’s life – in all their sleepy, snuggly glory.

I know how precious those first few weeks are and how much courage it can take to leave the house with your new baby. When you come into my studio, I’ll do my absolute best to make you feel at home and offer you the chance for some well-earned rest while I work my magic with your little one.

I wouldn’t trust my baby with just anyone, and I wouldn’t expect you to either. I like to speak to my clients on the phone before booking so that you can get a feel for who I am and to make sure that we’re a good fit for each other. However, you can rest assured that I am fully trained and insured to safely handle and pose newborn babies. I am also trained in paediatric first aid. I promise that your baby will be in safe hands.

Here’s what some of my clients had to say

Kirsty

Katie was brilliant from the start. She made sure me and my partner were comfortable and that baby was settled before we began anything. She was so patient and confident with my son even when I needed to feed and clean him up in between. Katie took time to get to know us all and was very easy to talk to. Great photographer with amazing results!

Newborn Photoshoots FAQs

No, you are welcome to make a bespoke order. There is, however, a minimum spend equal to the relevant silver package.

As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your view and order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.

If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.

At your view and order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful, customised slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you aren’t happy with your photographs, I will happily refund your deposit. I can happily report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!

Orders must be made at the view and order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.

I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to two charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles and The Family Haven.

You can find out a little more about this here.

A £100 deposit is payable for all photo sessions to secure your booking. This is then used as a credit towards whichever package or products you would like to buy. The deposit is non-refundable in the event of a no-show.

After the formalities of booking are over and done with, you’ll get an email confirming everything you need to know about your newborn photography session (you can get a head start with the blog post How to Prepare for Your Newborn Portrait Photography Session) and inviting you to my home photography studio (soon to be garden studio – eek!) in Gloucester.

You can expect to be in the studio for around two to four hours but don’t worry, your new baby won’t be in front of the camera the entire time – I allow plenty of time for feeds and cuddles!​

At the end of your photo session, we’ll arrange the best time for you to come back for your in-person photo viewing and order session. We’ll normally aim for about two weeks later because I don’t want to keep you hanging for too long! If you’re up for it, you’ll get the option of a sneak peek of your photos on Facebook that very same evening.

To find out more about what to expect, read this blog post.

Newborn photography sessions best take place between the ages of five and 28 days. Some photographers might only accept babies in the first few weeks and others might allow a bit later, but generally, the best time to photograph a newborn is in those first few weeks of their life. Because that puts us on quite a tight timescale, I would highly recommend booking your session well in advance to avoid disappointment. In fact, as soon as you’ve had your 20 week scan, I would recommend getting in touch to put a date in the diary.

Of course we have no idea when your new arrival is going to, well, arrive, so we’ll aim for about 5-7 days after your due date. Then if we need to move things around, it’s no problem.

I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.

I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
