1.Timing is Key: Schedule the photo shoot whilst you are still pregnant within the first two weeks of birth when babies are sleepier and more easily posed.

2. Keep it Cozy: We make sure that our gorgeous Flagstone Studio is clean, warm and comfortable environment, and by using soft blankets, wraps, and props to keep your baby snug and secure.

3. Good Light: We use a combination of natural, studio and constant light to make sure your newborn is lit in the best possible way!

4.Safety First: We always always prioritise your new babies safety during your photo shoot! We make sure the studio is clean and sterile, supports are used, the temperature is perfect and every pose is safe for your baby.

5. Patience is Key: One thing I hear most from new parents is how much patience I have, and I have to admit, it does take a lot of patience to be a newborn photographer, but I love it! I am always prepared to work around your baby's schedule. We always work to your babies schedule, so allow plenty of time for feeding, soothing, and breaks as needed.

6, The details are so important. I always make sure that I focus on capturing the tiny details that make your baby unique, such as their tiny fingers, toes, and eyelashes.

7. Embrace Candid Moments: Some of the most precious photos happen naturally. Be ready to capture candid moments of your baby yawning, stretching, or cuddling with family members.

8. Get Creative with Props: Incorporate meaningful props such as heirloom blankets, toys, or personalized accessories to add depth and personality to your photos.

9. Include Family Members: Don't forget to include siblings, parents, and even pets in your newborn photos to capture the joy and love of your growing family.

10.Relax and Have Fun: Above all, relax, enjoy the experience, and embrace the imperfections. Your baby's unique personality and expressions will shine through, creating timeless memories to cherish for years to come.
