Newborn Photography in Cheshire and the North West
Capturing the first few days of your baby’s life is something really special. Kati's style is to create natural as well as posed imagery. She offers a bespoke service and will tailor the session to your requirements and preferences.
Newborn photography sessions take place in the comfort of your own home and usually last between 2 to 4 hours with plenty of time in between for cuddles and feeds if needed. Kati prefers to photograph newborns in the first 14 days of their life whilst they are most sleepy and still bendy. This is not to say she cannot photograph your child after that time. Beautiful images can be captured at any stage of life. However, certain poses can only be achieved in that very early age.
If you consider booking a session with Kati, please get in touch soon after your 20 week scan. Of course babies do not always arrive when we expect them, but provisionally booking you in will give Kati a base line. If your baby arrives soon or was recently born, please still get in touch though; Kati sometimes has last minute bookings available.
Kati also love capturing the beautiful stage of pregnancy and offers a complimentary maternity shoot with every newborn session. If you are interested, please find more information on the maternity page.
What to expect
Kati has a range of props such as hats, baskets, blankets etc available. For a little personalisation, you are encourage you to bring your own hats, cuddly toys, blankets or clothes that you would like to include in the session.
The baby will be naked or wrapped in a blanket for most part of the session and the room will be kept very warm for its comfort. Bearing this in mind, you may want to wear layers. You may be aware that babies wee, poo and even dribble on everything. Kati doesn’t mind and you don’t need to worry about that at all! It happens all the time. It’s not a big deal, everything will be washed after the session.
Kati usually starts off with photographs of the baby. You can sit back and relax, read or even have a snooze. Yes, there have been dads falling asleep on Kati's sofa while their little angel was wide-awake. In these first stressful days, it is nice for parents to get a little mini break just to take a breath.
Sometimes Kati might also ask you to get involved, just to be close or keep a hand on the baby to ensure its safety. Then, towards the end of the session, Kati will take some images of you together as a family.
After the session
About 2 weeks after your photography experience, Kati will get in touch to arrange a viewing session, which is designed for you to choose your favourite images and to place an order. You will be able to choose from a variety of finished products from an a la carte menu or create your own collection. Kati offers framed prints in various sizes, coloured edge blocks, coffee table books etc, and she is more than happy to show you a selection of products and frames to give you some inspiration. Please note that different products require different production times. In the meantime, Kati might post a ‘sneak peek’ from your session on her facebook page, and you are welcome to tag yourself and to share with family and friends (unless you choose otherwise).
A newborn photography session costs £100 and is payable in advance to secure your date and time. Finished products start at £129, digital images at £295 or, if you wish to have a combination of digital images and wall art, you can create your own collection. Kati can also offer you a beautiful template for your announcement or Thank you cards. Please see the product guide for a choice of bespoke wall art and the price page for further prices.
