YOUR FAQ’s Answered
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
If you are looking to book a newborn shoot it’s best to book around the time of your 20 weeks scan. This is just to make sure that you get a session at the best possible time for the baby – which is around 7-14 days old.
For bumps, I always advise booking a shoot for around 28-34 weeks and you can book this is in as soon as you feel ready to do so.
For any milestone or family shoot, just book as soon as you’re thinking about it. The sooner you book, the more likely you are to secure the date you’d like or a weekend spot (as these get booked out 2-3 months ahead).
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT
To secure your session you simply need to you pay a £100 booking fee. This booking fee is then deducted from your session fee.
WILL YOU HELP US WITH WHAT TO WEAR?
First of all, don’t worry! I’ve got your back. Once your booking has been confirmed you’ll receive my specially created style guide within 25 hours. This will give you plenty of time to plan and style your family for your session. It will be packed with lots of tips on what to wear, and what not to wear. I have a small client wardrobe of dresses for mums to choose from. There is also a selection of outfits for newborns and children aged 1-4.
HOW LONG WILL THE SHOOT TAKE?
if you are booking a Newborn session these usually take around 2-3 hours, depending on how the baby is on the day. It’s common for babies to take a while to settle. There for I will only book one Newborn session per day. I want to make sure you all feel relaxed and there is no rush.
For maternity and connection sessions, I allow up to 2 hours but typically it will usually take around 1 hour.
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
My studio is situated on Bullar Road, Southampton, Hampshire, SO18 1GT. Its located within my very own Victorian home full of character. The lower ground floor studio allows access from the main road easily and space to park your pushchair.
Parking is available along the road opposite my house and in surroundng residental roads. On the weekend it can be busy so there is also a free car park a few minutes walk away near Bitterne Train Station.
Getting here via public transport is fairly easy. Bitterne train station is just a few minutes walk away and we’re also situated approximately a few minutes walk between two main bus routes.
