If you would like to have one of these sessions, please contact Mini Bee Photography after your 12 week scan. I schedule 2 weeks either side of your due date, and only take a certain number of bookings within this time then, once baby is here you get a definite date. Please do not worry if your baby doesn’t come on their due date, as they very rarely do. I will reschedule around mother nature.
This is one of my favourite photography sessions. As a mum of two, I fully understand how precious this time is, and how quickly it goes by. The ideal time to do this session is before your baby is 14 days old. As babies get older they tend to stretch out more and are more aware of their surroundings. In the first month, baby tends to sleep a lot and will barely notice this session happening before them.
At the studio you will have a choice of a various props and accessories that are made for newborn photography. The session is tailored around you, your style and colour scheme. You will have a choice of props, hats, wraps, headbands, outfits, furs, stuffers, blankets, etc however, we I do encourage you to bring any personal items you would like to incorporate (a newly knitted blanket, teddybear, etc).
Safety and comfort is my top priority. I am fully trained in newborn photography and know exactly how to settle, soothe and pose your baby. For the majority of the shoot, baby will be placed on a very large, flat beanbag that has been designed specifically for newborn photography. I also use a small heater along with various wraps and blankets to keep your baby warm. I use white noise to soothe your baby to sleep (as well as cuddles if ok with mums or dads). I will talk you through each pose and ask permission in every change I make to your baby.
