lt is because they change so fast that these sessions are best carried out within 2 weeks of birth (preferably within 6-14 days), baby remains sleepy and curly at this age, therefore it's important to contact me soon after the birth. The best time to book with me is before you have your baby, upon confirmation I’ll then pop your due date in my diary.
Once your little one arrives please email me full birth details, babys name and a photo, I will then contact you with some available dates. After weeks of age it’s much harder to get those cute curled poses & baby is more susceptible to waking, colic and baby acne.
I understand that just after giving birth the last thing you would want is to do anything too strenuous, so I try to ensure that the session is as relaxed for you as possible
and taken at baby’s pace. If your baby wants to feed, then feel free to comfort your little one and likewise if baby wants to just stop for a cuddle then we will all take a break.
My confidence in handing newborns means their safety and wellbeing is far more important to me than bagging 'the' shot.
