… beautifully styled, bespoke, in home,
While your baby is snug,
before he or she unfurls,
capture those details, & their tiny features.
Unfurl Newborn Sessions bring earthy textures, pops of colour, patience and lots of love.
Things change fast. From my own experience memories of your newborns fade in the hustle and bustle of family life. Hiring a professional photographer to capture these precious first days is a return ticket to those postpartum days which you may quickly forget. And newborn babies change rapidly and before you know it 6 months will have passed!
Newborn sessions need to be held as soon after birth as possible, ideally within the first two weeks. During that time, babies are very sleepy and still flexible and curly from being in the womb, which lends to great poses that cannot be achieved at any other time. It is advisable to book in advance of your due date as those first days pass quickly with visitors, midwife check ups and actually just coping. And of course if your delivery date changes then of course we just reschedule.
Prior to your session we will have the chance to chat during a consultation for expectations, styling advice, and preparing you & your baby for the photography.
Newborn photoshoots last up to 3 hours (depending how well your baby settles) and take place in your home. It is imperative that a quiet zone is made available (so perhaps the grandparents can take older siblings out) preferable near a good source of window light. I do not use flash as it startles and disturbs a calm baby.
