Booking An ‘At Home’ Newborn Session In Surrey
I’m Zoe and have been photographing newborns for 8 years now. After photographing for other people for so many years, I took the leap 5 years ago to go it alone. I have had training with 2 top photographers so you can rest assured that your baby is in safe experienced hands. I wanted to write Booking An At Home Newborn Session In Surrey to help Mums and dads know they can have a session form the comfort of their own home.
I live in leafy Farnham, Surrey with my husband Adam and our 2 girlies. Feeling very lucky to have a fantastic job with very lovely friendly clients.
So are you pregnant or your little one has arrived already? Congratulations!
Such an exciting time of your lives and one you will want to capture at every stage no doubt, whether it is on your iPhone or through a photo session, it’s all special.
So Do You Have These Questions?
Can I book you to come to our home for a newborn session?
Can we have big Sister or Brother photos?
Can we have photos altogether?
A big YES to all of these!
I will bring everything with me to your house we will need for your session and just need a small space to set up which is usually in the lounge. If baby needs feeding then you are most comfortable. Quite like playing with older siblings whilst this is going on Paw Patrol, dollies or drawing…..i’m in!
I quite often approach pregnant ladies to say hi if I am in Sainsbury’s or at the shops ( I always carry a supply of business cards or leaflets with me) Being photographed is such a personal thing and especially after having a baby. So I like to chat face to face to Mums-to-be to show I’m friendly and ‘not a weirdo’ much to the embarrassment of my two Daughters who usually run the other way when I go to introduce myself.
Recommendations Really Are The Best
Most of my bookings come from recommendations from my lovely clients already. Once I photographed a whole NCT group of 6 families as their babies arrived then again when they had their second babies a few years later.
When Should I Book My Newborn Session?
Most of my clients book just after their 20-week scan to guarantee their place. I only photograph a few Newborns each week to ensure the best possible service to my clients and I only photograph 1 family per day to ensure you or your baby is not rushed and that we can make sure we get the most out of your session. I take a session fee to book your space and this confirms your space in my diary. Packages are purchased separately to this.
What Happens Once I’ve Booked?
Your due date will be added to my diary and will keep in touch over the next few months. When your due date is nearing I will send you a message to say hi. When little one arrives please let me know and we can make plans for me to come to your home for your Newborn Session, ideally during 5-21 days as babies are all still curled up and sleepy at this stage. I work some Sundays so please get in touch if you require a weekend date.
Has Your Baby Already Arrived?
Don’t worry, I sometimes have space in the diary due to overdue babies, so do get in touch just in case.
What Do We Need At The Newborn Session?
As you are at your own home you will have everything to hand. Just a cup of tea, milk no sugar for me!
What Should We Wear?
Neutral-coloured clothing works best with no large logos or stripes.
Mums & Dads…….
I do encourage you Mum & Dad to be in the photographs too, as they are really are little just this once.
So if a blonde lady approaches you in Sainsbury’s in the pasta aisle, Newborn Photography or Family Photography card in hand with a big friendly smile. It’s most probably me!
