Newborn Session FAQs


Session Time


Where do newborn sessions take place?

Sessions are held at my Oswestry studio.

Please note, the Sat Nav takes you to the Ball Pub, if you get to the Ball pub (if you have come from the A483) you have gone to far.  Please follow the map.

The A483 Maesbury turnoff is closed, you will need to come the back way.


How long does the session last?

They range around 2-3 hours. Why so long? Well, I like to have enough time in case the baby needs extra feeding time, soothing, and posing a newborn all takes time and patience. This way, everyone is nice and relaxed and the session goes smoothly.

Can I bring a special item to include in my session?

Yes! I always ask parents  if they have a special item or heirloom they would like to include. I do ask that this be limited to one item.

Are sibling and parents shots included in the session?

Parents and sibling shots are definitely included. When siblings are included, we normally do those shots first, and a parent will take the child home or to the park  since the session can last long and siblings tend to not have as much patience.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for our session? What Should I wear?

Please try and keep baby awake an hour before the session.  I appreciate this is not always possible

Please give your baby a full feed when you arrive at the studio.

Please bring a dummy, even if you don’t use it, I will only use it if absolutely necessary.

Do I need to bring anything for my newborn session?

Nope! Just the baby. I have everything here ready for you to use.

What Should I wear?

Neutral colours work best, I will have some outfits for baby.  Beige, white, blue jeans, beige chinos, white tops or dresses work best for adults.

Aside from our digital images and products included in the collections, do you offer additional products?

Yes, I offer prints, professional canvases, albums and other products as well. You will be able to see samples of these at my studio the day of your session.


I look forward to meeting you soon.
